Want facts and want them fast? Our Maths in a minute series explores key mathematical concepts in just a few words.
We talk to Stuart Johnston who uses mathematics to find out how noise pollution in the oceans impacts whales.
Generating electricity without the use of fossil fuels is not just an engineering and industrial challenge, it is also a huge mathematical challenge.
In this podcast author Coralie Colmez shares insights into her novel The irrational diary of Clara Valentine.
We talk to early career mathematicians who spent some of their summer holiday solving problems posed by industry — such as how to blend a perfect smoothie!
Don't like plantbased meat alternatives, but want to spare animals and the environment? There's hope on the horizon, aided by a good helping of maths.
For someone getting his PhD in Applied Mathematics/Celestial Mechanics at the time of the first lunar landings, coming back to Halo Orbits after decades was a reall "eyeopener"! Yes, we had heard of Ljapunov stability and the fact that Henri Poincaré had forseen various "celestial mechanics wonders", but our computers at the time of Apollo were adequate for integrating Hill type orbits, but not for large scale numerical experiments with halo trajectories! While reading, your article unleached a myriad of ideas in my brain, connecting the special case of fast "swingbyorbits" and the generalized case of flying between Libration points. Thanks!
Your love for interdisciplinary thinking connects us even further than Celestial Mechanics  astrobiology is another subject that shows we live at just the right time. Well, having passed 70...
