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.
Correct.
Some points jump into infinity very fast, some take more cycles, and some go to "0".
A palette is assigned to the number of jumps. To speed up calculations a boundary is set, i.e. "64 iterations = infinity." You then can use a palette with 64 colors, nicely shaded. Jumps to "0" is black. Other points are shaded. Outside the set the colors fade into the background color.
Numberphile on Youtube has some very interesting videos. Within the black region there are amazing patterns too. You could plot them in a default Mandelbrot set picture, but it would look like chaos. Every point in this region has a iteration pattern into "0." Some look chaotic, some are symmetric like stars.
