== Topic
Explanation and understanding are central topics in the philosophy of scien
ce. This discipline has made important developments to account for the role
 explanations play in scientific activities. A current trend is that philos
ophers emphasize the relation between explanation and understanding, and st

o bring together scientists from different fields tackling the question of 
mathematical explanations both: in the sense of explanation within mathemat
ics as well as mathematical explanations in the sciences.
