The Map of Mathematics: Animation Shows How All the Different Fields in Math Fit Together | Open Culture

The Map of Mathematics: Animation Shows How All the Different Fields in Math Fit Together Open Culture by Dan Colman (openculture.com)

Back in December, you hopefully thoroughly immersed yourself in The Map of Physics, an animated video–a visual aid for the modern age–that mapped out the field of physics, explaining all the connections between classical physics, quantum physics, and relativity.

You can’t do physics without math. Hence we now have The Map of Mathematics. Created by physicist Dominic Walliman, this new video explains “how pure mathematics and applied mathematics relate to each other and all of the sub-topics they are made from.” Watch the new video above. You can buy a poster of the map here. And you can download a version for educational use here.
