The mathematical equations governing fluid flow may have no known solutions, but maths still has the answers!

When you receive a positive test result for a disease, the chance you actually have it depends on how common the disease is.

Next month sees the 60th birthday of a famous algorithm called Quicksort. Its inventor Tony Hoare told us that it all started with bubbles.

Many processes, including climate change and the spread of COVID-19, involve a delay. Here's a beautiful equation designed to model such processes.

Curves can be crazy, but asymptotes are nice and straight.

Can the virus that causes COVID-19 mutate into a vaccine-resistant strain? And if yes, what would this mean for our vaccination strategy?

Can physics shed new light on understanding language? An exciting new approach that brings together theoretical physics, mathematics and computer science might give us a new way to capture what makes a language unique.
