y = f(x,h,i) where f=g(h(x),i(x)) ... sound like programming? Or math?

Functional Programming IS basically math, just with exceedingly arbitrary functions doing exceedingly arbitrary tasks. The deeper you go, the theories included all dwell on running time, effiency, statistics, probability ... but usually one doesn't have to go that deep. Graph theory is math. Discrete math is math. Regular expressions ARE Finite Automata, and that's definitely math -- with pretty circles and arrows. Programs are Turing Machines. That's totally math. NP-completeness. Definitely math.

Math is the genesis of science and the glue which the rules of our universe are built upon... Words we could do without, we could have never invented them. But math would exist without our invention of it...

Remember there was computer science before computers!

Computer Science is no more about computers than astronomy is about telescopes. E. W. Dijkstra

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
