A **mathematical problem** is a problem that is amenable to being represented, analyzed, and possibly solved, with the methods of mathematics. This can be a real-world problem, such as computing the orbits of the planets in the solar system, or a problem of a more abstract nature, such as Hilbert's problems.

It can also be a problem referring to the nature of mathematics itself, such as Russell's Paradox.

### Famous quotes containing the words problem and/or mathematical:

“Theology, I am persuaded, derives its initial impulse from a religious wavering; for there is quite as much, or more, that is mysterious and calculated to awaken scientific curiosity in the intercourse with God, and it [is] a *problem* quite analogous to that of theology.”

—Charles Sanders Peirce (1839–1914)

“What is history? Its beginning is that of the centuries of systematic work devoted to the solution of the enigma of death, so that death itself may eventually be overcome. That is why people write symphonies, and why they discover *mathematical* infinity and electromagnetic waves.”

—Boris Pasternak (1890–1960)
