Abstract

Interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary sciences over the last few decades have become the major booster of science development. The most important discoveries occur just at the intersection of sciences and in collaboration of several fields. There appeared such intermediate fields as mathematical physics, physical chemistry, biophysics, biochemistry, geophysics, etc. In Astronomy, Astrophysics has long been the main field, and at present Archaeoastronomy, Astrochemistry, Astrobiology, Astroinformatics (which is tightly related to Virtual Observatories) are developing. Science fields and disciplines related to Astronomy and Data/Computer Science; namely Astrostatistics, Computational Astronomy/Astrophysics, Astroinformatics and Virtual Observatories, Laboratory Astrophysics, Big Data in Astronomy and Data Science are discussed. International organizations, international meetings, international journals related to the area are described. Some recent developments in this field in Armenia are also given.

Keywords: Interdisciplinary Sciences; Astrostatistics; Astroinformatics; Virtual Observatories; Big Data; Laboratory Astrophysics
