Everybody knows what “Mathematics” is but ask around and you will quickly realise that nobody really knows what “Applied Mathematics” means. In this talk I will use research drawn from the world of physics and biology to convey what it means to be an applied mathematician. In particular, I will explain how one goes about building a mathematical model, what approximate solutions are and why sometimes you don’t have a choice and need to use a computer.

This talk is part of the Trinity Mathematical Society series.
