Analysis and Partial Differential Equations
Analysis is broadly concerned with problems and techniques that involve estimation, approximation and limiting processes. Many specific areas of math fall entirely or largely under the analysis umbrella. These include riemannian geometry, complex analysis, dynamical systems, probability and many aspects of mathematical physics. Differential equations, which aims to understand functions from relationships among their derivatives, plays a particularly important role in most of these areas and as a subfield of analysis in its own right.
