AI and GoPro physics

Will AI one day be able to spot the equation that describes a physical process just by looking at a video of it? 

GO-Science National Numeracy Day challenge!

We're helping the Government Office for Science (GO Science) to bring you an Olympic challenge for National Numeracy Day! 

Happy Women in Maths Day!

We celebrate Women in Mathematics Day with a look at three amazing women from the history of mathematics.

Heads, Bayes wins!

If you've flipped heads 10 times what's the next flip most likely to be?  Bayes' theorem has the answer, not just for the coin, but for the pursuit of science generally.

Tails, Bayes loses (and invents data assimilation in the process)

Trying to make a prediction about the world based on dodgy data? Then data assimilation has the answer!

String theory: A promise from physics

Mathematics is an indispensable tool in physics, but can physics solve problem in maths? Find out more in this article.

String theory: Convincing mathematics

Find out how a theory from physics has provided tools for solving long-standing problems in number theory. And in turn how number theory helps solve the mystery of black holes.

Measles cases on the rise: Why this is worrying and what we can do


We look at the recent rise in measles cases, why it has led to a national health incident being declared, and what can be done to avert the threat.

Outraged by not knowing

Our neighbour Oscar Randal-Williams tells us about his exciting work at the frontiers of mathematics and the fundamental question he might be just about to answer!

Introducing the mathsci-comm network

We are very pleased to be launching this network for those working in, and with a stake in, communicating complex mathematics and data science to a variety of non-expert audiences.

The Abel Prize 2024: Michel Talagrand

The Abel Prize 2024 has been awarded to Michel Talagrand for ground breaking contributions to probability theory and functional analysis.
