    This essay highlights several examples of using mathematics and statistics to analyse problems involving Big Data. More often than not, mathematics is essential for extracting usable information from the data. However, it usually remains hidden under the bonnet, and the general public seems to take it for granted. With this paper Alessandro Di Bucchianico, Laura Iapichino, Nelly Litvak, Frank van der Meulen and Ron Wehrens want to show some essential contributions of the fields of mathematics to Big Data using successful real-life examples.
