Why Is Operations Research A Field Of Study?

- When I take courses in math or natural sciences, I always have this one question stuck in my mind. How can I use the abstract concepts I learned in these courses to solve problems in the real world. For example, courses in quantum mechanics greatly fostered my abilities to think, to analyze, to reason, but I had a hard time seeing the immediate utilization of Schrodinger’s equation in resolving real problems, in spite of its clear connection to the physical world. Therefore, from time to time, I feel confused and concerned about how to put my knowledge into use, even though the sense of fulfillment in acquiring it encourages me....   [tags: Mathematics, Science, Scientific method]
