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?

Here's our coverage from the International Congress of Mathematicians 2022, including the Fields Medals and other prizes.

The COVID-19 pandemic has amplified the differences between us. Understanding these inequalities is crucial for this and future pandemics.

This is all wrong: the parents start out with only 2 million base pairs of their genome ( 3 billion base pairs) different from each other. Although 1/2 your genes come from each parent 99.933 % of those genes are identical 2 x 10^6 / 3 x 10^9 = .00067 = .067%. That's why we all, save a very few, have 2 arms, 2 legs, 7 cervical vertebrae, etc. are are defined as a species. If parents had only 1/2 their genes in common they would be life forms at all, or at least one of them wouldn't.
