The intellectual content and the present state of the mathematical sciences have been described in Part II. In Part III we have con- sidered the educational problems of these sciences, and in Part IV we have discussed the present status and trends of financial support. In Part V we first discuss the tasks and needs of the mathematical sciences, primarily as far as research support is concerned. The final Chapter places these tasks and needs in the context of the mathe- matical sciences' total service to society.
