Eric T. Bell O. Heaviside Mathematics is a tool for thought. A highly necessary tool in a world where both feedback and non- linearities abound. Similarly, all kinds of parts of mathematics serve as tools for other parts and for other sciences. Applying a simple rewriting rule to the quote on the right above one finds such statements as: 'One service topology has rendered mathematical physics .. :; 'One service logic has rendered com- puter science .. :; 'One service category theory has rendered mathematics .. :. All arguably true. And all statements obtainable this way form part of the raison d'etre of this series.
