Summary This book is the Study Book of ICMI-Study no. 20, which was run in cooperation with the International Council for Industry and Applied Mathematics (ICIAM). The editors were the co-chairs of the study (Damlamian, Straesser) and the organizer of the Study Conference (Rodrigues). The text contains a comprehensive report on the findings of the Study Conference, original plenary presentations of the Study Conference, reports on the Working Groups and selected papers from all over the world. This content was selected by the editors as especially pertinent to the study, each individual chapter representing a significant contribution to current research
