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.
Thanks Tony, but I'd already assumed there are so many degrees per radian. What intrigued me was the way that series expressed the cosine function without needing to incorporate any such conversion factor and what was special about radians as opposed to degrees which enables this. In the same vein, I was wondering if there was any similarly elegant and simple series which could do the same for degrees.
