How partial differential equations can unravel information in data

The advance of data science and the solution of big data questions rely heavily on fundamental mathematical techniques. We are surrounded by technology that collects, transmits and manipulates data on an immense scale; the key is the application and development of advanced mathematics for the efficient gathering and manipulation of ‘data’–values of qualitative or quantitative variables–and efficient extraction of ‘information’–the content and meaning present in data.…
