**If one is talking about paying the bill at the groceries, filing income tax returns, or making a transaction at the bank, one may be right in saying that advanced mathematics has no application in these and similar everyday contexts.**

**But if one is an actuary, an aircraft designer, a submarine builder, or an astrophysicist one knows all too well that advanced mathematics is not only useful, but indispensable.**

**Then again, it depends on which branch of mathematics one is talking about. Number theory is as useless a branch of mathematics as you can get. But even neuroscientists find Fourier transforms to be useful. **

**When one has not been involved in such matters it is difficult to understand this, and one tends to become eloquent on the uselessness of mathematics!**
