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.
I really like this, the XFL should have thought about things like this before, well. Nevermind.
One way to make the NFL section clearly would be to phrase it in terms of "yards to go". So for your example the numbers would be 80, 70, etc. This is much more natural and useful as the yardage units on a football field are hilariously stupid [it should either count from 0>100 or from 50>0>50] you can just skip to the punch line: "How far does my offense have to go?" or "How many opportunities will my defense have to get a stop?" It'll make the comparisons easier especially since, in theory, a team could bid a total distance of less than fifty yards if they're all defense and no offense.
