DESCRIPTION:In Scientific and Engineering Great Discoveries\,
mathematics seems to play a supporting role to the
se important disciplines. However\, there is one f
ield in which mathematics is the Queen of Science\
; Mathematical Modelling. Mathematical modelling h
as always played a leading role in human achieveme
nts. From the discovery of Blacks Holes and the Pl
anet Neptune to driving BloodHound Land-speed reco
rd attempt of next year.\n\nNevertheless\, is ther
e a Star-Wars 'dark side' of mathematical modellin
g? Was mathematical modelling responsible for the
World Economical Crash of 2008? Will mathematical
modelling create automated robots that will surpas
s human intelligence and enslave us?
