A new machine learning framework provides doctors with a reliable tool to help diagnose Alzheimer's disease early.

What do we know about monkeypox, what do we not know, and what efforts are going into modelling it?

The COVID-19 emergency resulted in some amazing mathematical collaborations.

Here's a simple game at which a human can out-fox even the cleverest algorithm.

The INI is celebrating its 30th birthday. What is it and what is it do for maths and mathematicians?

This is a very good question

For when we hear two pure tones together WE HEAR BEATS

Of course the ear in non-linear - so that explains that! ....... WRONG

Sine (A) + sine(b) is half the sine of A+B plius half the cosine of A-B (or summat like that)

So the "beats" are REAL - in the air - even BEFORE some ear mangles them up.

The astounding BEAUTY of the whole thing is a pure tone AFTER being horribly mangled by our ear STILL SOUNDS GREAT (even if a little dull).

But the nerve signals sent to the brain are HORRENDOUS!
