Dr. Raymond Greenlaw – The Synergy of Computer Science and Mathematics 3 Introduction Computer science and mathematics are  currently extensively used in many fields Both have influenced the other and led to  many advancements in each This synergy between the two have even  lead to the increase in interest in  computational mathematics, a field that many  consider to be the intersection between  computer science and mathematics

Dr. Raymond Greenlaw – The Synergy of Computer Science and Mathematics 5 Influence of Math on C.S. Many computer science programs have  spawned from mathematics departments During their time under mathematics, they  slowly built up reputation and students, with  most eventually becoming their own  department, then later, their own school Many noted computer scientists have  degrees in mathematics, including Knuth,  Cook, Lamport, Backus (FORTRAN, BNF),  Kay (GUI), and McCarthy (LISP)

Dr. Raymond Greenlaw – The Synergy of Computer Science and Mathematics 6 Influence of Math on C.S. Why do C.S. students need Math? Many people believe that mathematics is  fundamental to computer science  Real world problems are often expressed  mathematically and require problem solving  skills Studies have shown that mathematical ability  has a strong correlation with success in  introductory computer science courses

Dr. Raymond Greenlaw – The Synergy of Computer Science and Mathematics 7 Influence of Math on C.S. When the human brain is subjected to  extended educational experience permanent,  physical changes occur, creating neural  pathways which aid in learning new things The more repetitive the learning process, the  strong and longer lasting the changes The mind finds it extremely difficult to accept  formal abstractions, yet at some point, they  seem very real and the developer does not  see them as abstract
