The COVID-19 emergency resulted in some amazing mathematical collaborations.

Here's a simple game at which a human can out-fox even the cleverest algorithm.

The INI is celebrating its 30th birthday. What is it and what is it do for maths and mathematicians?

Here's our coverage from the International Congress of Mathematicians 2022, including the Fields Medals and other prizes.

The COVID-19 pandemic has amplified the differences between us. Understanding these inequalities is crucial for this and future pandemics.

During my Engineering days we would occasionally run into physical phenomena that didn't have a Gaussian basis. Some of these were lengths of lightening strokes, she speed of sound in water, etc., etc.

Specifying a few sigma as a measure of reliability, can occasionally represent unreliability when the underlying physical parameters are not symmetrical. This can lead to misleading results. I have read that the scientists at CERN generally use a 5-sigma threshold for high reliability determination of physical parameters.
