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.
Yes, it is credibly proven: in general, an exact tripartition of an angle, only with a compass, pen and unmarked ruler, is not possible. However, it can be an exciting task to find an approximation construction that has the smallest possible absolute error with relatively little effort.
Well, the question: Which approximation construction holds the record?
Here is an example of a approximation construction that has acceptable accuracy with relatively little effort:
