Hi guys, I'm a computer science student who has a lot of interest in Maths. Whenever I ask a problem to this Maths teacher of mine, he always asks if I have any application for it or am just asking from the mathematical point of view. Usually, it's the latter. Then he tells me that I should find some application for it because the Maths community will not take me seriously and throw the paper into the dustbin without reading it. So, is this true?
