In the real-world problem, when building a mathematical model to the problem, some simplifications have to be made. They may be minor ones, but sometimes the model may be far from the true one. It is claimed that “it is better to have a good and acceptable solution to a true problem rather than an optimal solution to a simplified problem that may have a little resemblance to the original problem. The true problem may be categorized as a NP-hard problem or intractable problem. The ultimate solution approach is needed to solve this type of problem.
In some surveys, an outlying observation or outlier can occur. Study on outliers becomes interesting since, on the one hand, they indicate faulty data or erroneous procedures, on the other hand, in large samples, a small number of outliers is to be expected. One of interesting studies on the cause of outliers is in gene expression surveys.
Mathematics and culture have relationship that refers to ethnomathematical studies. Etnomathematics is also a study on culture of ethnic group having specific QRS (quantity, relationship, space) systems such as Malay, Hindu, Maori, or native American society. The goal of ethnomathematics is to contribute both to the understanding of culture and the understanding of mathematics, but mainly to appreciating the connections between the two.
The three topics mentioned above will be presented by invited speakers from UK, Indonesia, and Malaysia.
