LO6: Mathematics in Application

One of the most interesting ideas that have emerged across the course of my time in Warhammer club is the applicability of Mathematics to a wide range of fields. In fact, the topic I wrote my Mathematics IA on was using Markov Chains to try and analyse dice rolls within the game. The interesting issue here though is how, over the course of researching for my IA, I came across many other scenarios in which Markov chains, and game theory in general, can be applied: warfare, dating, politics. There’s probably a global issue there somewhere in how Mathematics connects so many different areas together.
