# Applications of Mathematics

This is an amazing resource from the British Columbia Institute of Technology: a cross-referenced list of how various mathematical ideas are used in various technology fields.

Interested in how Linear Algebra can be applied to Nuclear Medicine? Or how Logs and Exponentials can be applied to Forestry and Wildlife? Or how Differential Equations can be applied to Mechanical Engineering?

Well, look no further!

That is an awesome list! Definitely high-end mathematics being discussed, but a great resources to have.

Thanks for sharing, Peter!
