Not everything can be computed. There are some problems which cannot be solved using the common mathematical principles because to solve these problems the modern computers or supercomputers would need hundreds or even thousands years. And these problems will be discussed in this lecture. The goal of the presentation is to show the limits of math which depend on the present state of modern computers and machines. The presentation demonstrate how the ability of computers to compute the difficult problems depend on the selected algorithms as well as physics. Topics as the quantum physics or thermodynamics will be discussed.

Workforce in Mathematics

In the EU, there are around 260,000 mathematics and statistics students. Jobs for mathematicians, other scientists and engineers grew by 7% in the past five years. Jobs for technicians in the field grew by 2%. Overall, they account for 7% of all jobs in the EU. Mathematicians work as data analysts, actuarial analysts, investment analysts, or data scientists. As of 2016, around 15 million European science and engineering workers are employed. They work in a variety of sectors, including professional services, utilities, manufacturing, construction, wholesale, and the public sector. In the next years, jobs for mathematicians, other researchers and engineers will increase by 13%, and jobs for technicians in the field will increase by 2%.
