How many people work in each subfield of applied math?

Postby lucerne » Wed Jan 25, 2012 10:30 pm

I am wanting to choose a subject in applied mathematics for ph.d thesis, prefer a large community. Can someone tell me how many people work in each subfield of applied math?

I read somewhere that "
The first observation is that each mathematician is a special case, and in general mathematicians tend to behave like “fermions”i.e. avoid working in areas which are too trendy whereas physicists behave a lot more like “bosons” which coalesce in large packs and are often “over-selling” their doings, an attitude which mathe-maticians despise
".

Perhaps you could check out applied math related to physics, if you like working with more people.
