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.
My understanding is that the universe is always expanding and is therefore Infinite. But if we had the tools and we could break the speed of light could we measure the different stages of infinity? The explanation that the universe started with a big bang then expanded and suddenly expanded by infinity does not make too much sense to me. We are able to measure a less than 1 millisecond after the big bang. That is still something and a number that we can measure from the stages to infinity isn't it? An example would be that we could measure how "big/long" "the end" of the expanding universe was 4 billion years B.C.
Please give me an explanation as to why my "theory" is stupid/asinine seeing as i am not a scientist nor a well educated Pearson.
Thank you.
