Pure science


  • Chambers's Twentieth Century Dictionary
    • Pure science the principles of any science considered in themselves and their relation to each other, and not in their application to the investigation of other branches of knowledge, as pure mathematics, pure logic, &c
    • ***

America, the land of science,
The land of every nation's love,
Has formed with Freedom an alliance
So pure, 'tis registered above!
"The Triumph Of Liberty" by James Madison Bell
Pure was his soul, expanding ev'ry hour,
On life's frail stem it bloom'd a fragrant flow'r.
Learning adorn'd and science had refined,
Ere time matur'd, his comprehensive mind.
"Lines" by Elizabeth Bath
Blessed is he who carries in his heart
A God, a pure ideal he obeys,
Ideal of Virtue, Science or of Art,
And strives to reach its heaven all his days;
The source of Action's greater, nobler part,
The Infinite revealed in human ways.
"Pasteur on the Infinite " by Washington Van Dusen

Kolmogorov complexity is a well-developed field with a plethora of applications in areas such as compute r science, physics, pure mathematics and philosophy .

Quantum information science (see e.g. and references therein) has received an increased attention in recent years due to the understanding that it enables to perform procedures not possible by purely classical resources.

The most natural and well-studied ensemble of states is that of random states, the set of pure states in Hilbert space selected randomly from the unitarily invariant distribution, used in many areas of quantum physics and quantum information science [1–3].

To come back to the role of Mathematics in shaping the sciences, Hardy’s reluctance to give a precise status to Applied Mathematics perhaps stems from the absence of an ‘identity’ (a core definition) akin to that of Pure Mathematics which he had himself provided.
