        MATHEMATICS AND OPERATIONS RESEARCH IN INDUSTRY
                    MAA Online Feature

       http://maa.org/features/012304mathinindustry.html

  Students majoring in mathematics might wonder whether they
  will ever use the mathematics they are learning, once they
  graduate and get a job. Is any of the analysis, calculus,
  algebra, numerical methods, combinatorics, math programming,
  etc. really going to be of value in the real world? Three
  mathematicians working at General Motors R & D provide some
  answers.
