This Pi Day, March 14th, we say thank you to to all the wonderful mathematicians and scientists who have helped make our podcast, Maths on the move! Our podcast celebrates the researchers themselves, as well as their research, and we hope it conveys the creative and dynamic nature of doing mathematics – bringing mathematics to life.
We relaunched our podcast channel in March last year, but we've been producing podcasts since waaaay back in 2007. We love reporting the latest news from the world of maths, as you can hear in our latest episode Communicating from the frontiers of mathematics. And we also bring you the maths behind the headlines you see every day – such as in our special series On the mathematical frontline where we spoke to the mathematicians grappling with the unprecedented challenge of live pandemic.
We hope you enjoy discovering some their mathematical stories in your favourite episodes from the podcast over the last year!
Happy listening and happy Pi Day everyone!
Maths, our environment, our climate
How can maths help us tackle the climate crisis? And how can it help us understand the world we live in? Find out from these experts in climate science and modelling ,and those working on the innovative technologies that could make a difference.
Maths on the red carpet!
We were very excited to be able to take you direct to Helsinki for the International Congress of Mathematicians in July 2022! (Forgive the slightly intense theme music – we were very excited!)
The ICM takes place very four years and is one of the highlights of the mathematical calendar - as well as being the biggest maths conference of them all, attracting thousands of participants, it also sees the awards of some very prestigious prizes, including the famous Fields Medals. In these podcasts meet the new Fields Medallists and find out what made this ICM so different.
Listener favourites from the archive
Relaunching the podcast has given us the chance to sprinkle our podcast feed with fantastic interviews from our archive. These episodes have been clear favourites with our listeners!
Many of these podcasts form part of our collaboration with the Isaac Newton Institute for Mathematical Sciences (INI), an international research centre and our neighbour here on the University of Cambridge's maths campus. INI attracts leading mathematical scientists from all over the world, and is open to all. Visit www.newton.ac.uk to find out more.
