Because the name of this track is Big Systems and Systems Engineering this topic fits under the topic of mathematics (a very big system).
However, engineering in general is a bit different and systems engineering is even more different.
Engineering is the act of applying mathematics and scientific principles to the solution of practical problems.
So, math is a tool used by engineers to solve problems.
Then there are systems science and metasystems methodology that set the context for the application of systems engineering.
There is little or no magic involved in these well defined approaches and processes for designing, developing, deploying and operating large-scale systems.
However, as Arthur C. Clarke detailed in his three laws, "Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic."
In my mind we are discussing a very advanced technology that integrates large stores of data, information and technology.
It is not magic.
Take care and have fun,
