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!

I am not a scientist, neither do I work in education. I am just someone who is reasonably intelligent and inquisitive. I am not going to pretend I understood this completely but it is the best explanation I have found for Quantum Computing thus far and I was certainly able to gain a basic grasp of the principles. To be fair, some of what was written I just have to accept is correct (I always feel reassured when I read the statement “ Nobody knows how that happens, but it does”…if scientists don’t know I don’t need to worry about it either).

I will now go off and try to impress my friends with the little information I have gleaned here.
