A mathematician is a person whose primary area of study is the field of mathematics. Mathematicians are concerned with quantity, structure, space, and change.

Some scientists who research other fields, such as theoretical physics, are also considered mathematicians if their research provides insights into mathematics. Conversely, some mathematicians may provide insights into other fields of research—these people are known as applied mathematicians.
