Want facts and want them fast? Our Maths in a minute series explores key mathematical concepts in just a few words.
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.
Inverse problems are mathematical detective problems. They can help solve crimes, are used in medical imaging, and much more.
The real nature of spacetime continuum  STC  is still illusive, though it is being discussed for 100 years since the era of Henri Poincare, Albert Einstein and Philipp Lenard. I think the conventional model of spacetime used for communicating / teaching is logically misleading. Let me explain why so. The conventional model uses a 2dimensional flexible fabric and a massive sphere kept on the fabric. As a resultportion of fabric below sphere is bent down.
Use of a sphere for star is OK, understandable. But WHY flexible fabric is used to represent spacetime? Actually, one cannot touch, see, sense the space but fabric can be seen sensed. In short, while teaching Einstein's STC we (followers of Einstein) *dictate* einstein's idea on students / public. In my opinion, teaching has tobe *inspiring* and NOT *dictating*. I think the problem of spacetime continuum is still enigmatic because for many years, we have been using misleading model with logical fault.
