How do you create dramatic film out of mathematics? We find out with writer and director Timothy Lanzone.

Mathematics plays a central role in understanding how infectious diseases spread. This collection of articles looks at some basic concepts in epidemiology to help you understand this fascinating and important field, and set you up for further study.

Find out why the formula we use to work out conditional probabilities is true!

- We talk about a play that explores the fascinating mathematical collaboration between the mathematicians GH Hardy and Srinivasa Ramanujan.
News stories have claimed they may have — but is this true?

Just because us humans don't have access with infinite accuracy to initial conditions doesn't mean that initial conditions don't exist with infinite detail. Our human inability to accurately predict doesn't mean that, for example, weather doesn't happen deterministically, just that we are limited weather prognosticators.

However, true randomness in quantum events would, agreeably, kill determinism.
