Abstract [en]

This chapter explores the nature of theoretical approaches used in research literature focusing on mathematical applications and modelling, in particular, the orientation and diversity of theoretical approaches within this line of enquiry within the field of mathematical modelling and applications. The study is based on the document analysis of a sample of publications over the past decade. The study indicates that there is an increasing diversity of theoretical approaches utilised within mathematical modelling and applications but that publications appear to draw on a limited range of theories.
