A Survey on Applications of Select Mathematical Operators in Other Disciplines

Riyaz Ahmad Khan, Muhammad Tariq


The exponential boom in information technology in the past few decades has altogether revolutionized the way courses belonging to different disciplines are imparted, learnt and employed in the practical fields.  Instead of having to understand the true purpose and applicability of pertinent mathematical concepts and operators, the students directly resort to the simulation and modeling software programs pertaining to various disciplines. This leaves the learners with the dilemma of not grasping the true essence and spirit of mathematical concepts and operators working in the background of these software programs. To partly address this issue, this paper presents a survey of various mathematical operators that are frequently employed in other branches of learning in diverse ways.
