How is frequency related to pitch? Hear the music we love emerge from pure mathematical beats.

We talk to Stuart Johnston who uses mathematics to find out how noise pollution in the oceans impacts whales.

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!

Ok interesting stuff but believe the logic is too simple and faulty. For example..words are also very effective at describing the world we live in today. This doesn't mean however that the world is made up of words. The tools used to describe something are by definition not the thing they describe. So at best what the article should have said is that the world (or rather much more accurately OUR perception of the world) seems to operate in some form of logic that follows mathematical principles and has in that sense some rational to it. One different view is that it is WE who are imposing the 1/0 interpretation on the world thereby forcing the collapse of the 'potential for everything' into one possibility be it an object or item from the electron to the moon. This in a similar fashion to the collapse of the wave function of probability into a single location upon measurement. Have a nice day!
