Editorial AppliedMath—Cultivating Proﬁtable Frontier of Mathematics Takayuki Hibi Department of Pure and Applied Mathematics, Graduate School of Information Science and Technology, Osaka University, Suita, Osaka 565-0871, Japan; email@example.com Mathematics has been built over thousands of years of history, since the creation of ancient civilizations. No one doubts that modern civilized society would not be possible without mathematics. As the theory of curved space, created in the 19th century, was used in the theory of relativity in the 20th century, at the time of studying mathematics, it is very difﬁcult to see how it will be proﬁtable to the world in the future. Therefore, research on mathematics was mainly motivated by the intellectual curiosity of the researchers, and the beauty and perfection of the results. Only half a century ago, mathematics was pure mathematics and abstract mathematics. However, as the unexpected applications of the splendid theory of pure mathematics, which was originally studied due to pure intellectual curiosity, were increasingly discovered, the aspect of mathematics that was beneﬁcial to our daily lives was gradually recognized. This phenomenon can be said to be a proof of the maturity of pure mathematics. In this trend, applied mathematics gained an equal footing with pure mathematics. At present, both pure mathematics and applied mathematics are considered mathematics. Any mathematics can be pure mathematics or applied mathematics. The scope of mathematics is expanding and cannot be stopped. One of the duties of researchers involved in mathematics is to dramatically expand the frontier of mathematics. I personally started my research on the abstract theory of commutative algebra when I was a student in the 1980s, and after that I became interested in the combinatorics of convex Citation: Hibi, T. AppliedMath— polytopes. Around 1990, I came across the concept of Gröbner bases and started using the Cultivating Proﬁtable Frontier of Gröbner basis to study the minimal free resolution of ideals, as well as the triangulation Mathematics. AppliedMath 2021, 1, of convex polytopes. Gröbner bases provided a theory of algebra that could be calculated 1–2. https://doi.org/10.3390/ and led to a wonderful fusion of commutative algebra and applied mathematics.
