In this book Christopher Pincock tackles this perennial question in a new way by asking how mathematics contributes to the success of our best scientific representations. In the first part of the book this question is posed and sharpened using a proposal for how we can determine the content of a scientific representation. Several different sorts of contributions from mathematics are then articulated. Pincock argues that each contribution can be understood as broadly epistemic, so that what mathematics ultimately contributes to science is best connected with our scientific knowledge.

Christopher Pincock’s Mathematics and Scientific Representationis an interesting and important new book on the applications of mathematics to science. The book is loaded with fascinating case studies that bring out the varied and interesting ways that mathematics is used in science. Pincock provides a much more nuanced picture of the roles that mathematics plays in empirical science than we usually get from philosophers of mathematics writing on the topic of applications.
