In comparison with mathematicians, physicists in some cases try to simplify and to introduce new cultural context into conventional pure mathematics. Cross-cultural differences between these cultures can be essential and some attempts to do alternative mathematics in the physical academic context could be defined as the new fields of ethnomathematics.
