Applied mathematics is a branch of mathematics that deals with mathematical
methods that find use in science, engineering, business, computer science,
and industry. Thus, applied mathematics is a combination of mathematical
science and specialized knowledge. In the past, practical applications have
motivated the development of mathematical theories, which then became the
subject of study in pure mathematics where abstract concepts are studied
for their own sake. The activity of applied mathematics is thus intimately
connected with research in pure mathematics which is also referred to as
theoretical mathematics.

Another view is that pure / theoretical mathematics is not necessarily
applied mathematics: it is possible to study abstract entities with respect
to their intrinsic nature and not be concerned with how they manifest in
the real world. Even though the pure and applied viewpoints are distinct
philosophical positions, in practice there is much overlap in the activity
of pure and applied mathematicians. International business consists of
trades and transactions at a global level. These include the trade of
goods, services, technology, capital and/or knowledge. Such activity often
employs mathematics for areas related to international business such as
finance, general management, sales & marketing, supply chain management,
distribution, and economics.

The primary objective of the proposed publication is that of Reference
material for scholars and business executives who need to understand the
importance of applied and theoretical mathematics in international business
in the 21st century. The secondary objective is to provide a foundation for
other related publications on the subject area.

*Target Audience*
The primary intended audience is scholars who have the need for qualified
Reference material regarding the subject matter of the proposed publication
as outlined above. While having academic rigor, the book will be written in
