Mathematics is the language of the universe. Without mathematics no one could have imagined the extraordinary evolution of science and technology over the past century. Our social progress depends on scientific innovation, and mathematics is fundamental to science. Mathematics expressed the theory of relativity and the quantum mechanics in the early 20th century; since then mathematicians has played a vital role in inventing computers, designing space ,energy programs, and investigating the structure of DNA molecules etc. As Roger Bacon pointed out, mathematics is the key to all branches of science. Today mathematics is the keystone of high technology, and, in a sense, the symbol of modern civilization.

As a developing country, Oman is marching on the road toward modernization.
