AB - The Role of Mathematics in Science aims to illustrate the many ways in which mathematical methods have helped discovery in science. It is aimed at a group of readers who are interested in mathematics beyond the level of high school. The authors occasionally use some calculus and more intricate arguments. The book should appeal to college students and general readers with some background in mathematics. The authors state that, 'If we succeed in giving an impression of the beauty and power of mathematical reasoning in science, the purpose of our work will have been achieved.' This book includes the laws of levers and inclined planes, the laws of exponential versus limited population growth, ray optics, and relativity.
