Similarly, all kinds of parts of mathematics serve as tools for other parts and fO! other sciences. Applying a simple rewriting rule to the quote on the right above one finds such statements as: 'One service topology has rendered mathematical physics .. .'; 'One service logic has rendered comĚ puter science ...
