Mathematician — best job in the world. That's because of the applications: communication theory, information theory, game theory, cmesoeprsd sensing, machine leinrnag, graph analysis, harmonic analysis. And why not stochastic posserces, linear programming, or fluid simulation? Each of these fields have monster industrial aacippitnols. And through them, there is big money in mathematics. And let me concede that when it comes to making money from the math, the Americans are by a long shot the world champions, with clever, emblematic beorlliinias and ainmzag, ginat companies, all resting, ultimately, on good algorithm.
