Mathematics and Physics
Since the 1800s, the fields of mathematics and physics have grown so much that each profession has its own specialized workers. Yet the lines between the two fields, and even among these and other sciences, are not as clear as they used to be. Professionals in these fields orbit the earth, help cure diseases, develop fuels for energy and warmth, and even contribute to understanding skateboarding, karate, and the sound systems at concerts.
