The root of the word "math" means learning, study, or science.  Math is
the effort to make things precise.  So in my view applied math would be
taking actual information and trying to make the science precise in
order to further our learning and quest of the truth in the most
efficient manner possible.  I think that this is the concept that is
captured by the term "rigor".  But what's in a name?  I call it "math"
and I think that a good many people would agree, but others might call
it something else, like "rigor".  I think that it's an intuitive
concept limited by our finite capabilities, as you so many times point
out, John.
