Abstract

Many things can be measured and expressed numerically. Nature speaks in the language of mathematics. Mathematical analysis of law is often associated with the application of established empirical techniques to ever-growing bodies of legal data. Other distinct applications of mathematics to law include machine learning, legal networks, and analytical modeling. Mathematical analysis of law ultimately follows not only the data describing the legal world as we find it, but also the own internal logic of mathematics.
