It bas put common sense back Jules Verne where it belongs. on the topmost shelf next to the dusty cauister labelled 'discarded uonsense-. The series is divergent; therefore we may be EricT. Bell able to do something with it. O. Heaviside Mathematics is a tool for thought. A highly necessary tool in a world where both feedback and nonlineari­ ties abound. Similarly, all kinds of parts of mathematics serve as tools for other parts and for other sci­ ences. Applying a simple rewriting rule to the quote on the right above one finds such statements as: 'One ser­ vice topology has rendered mathematical physics .. .'; 'One service logic has rendered computer science .. .'; 'One service category theory has rendered mathematics .. .'. All arguably true. And all statements obtainable this way form part of the raison d' 8tre of this series.
