Want facts and want them fast? Our Maths in a minute series explores key mathematical concepts in just a few words.
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!
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.
[Suppose you have a slice through the block of cement of spacetime, corresponding to a time, say, of six in the evening in London on 14 April 2016. "General relativity says that if I know the conditions in this instant, I can predict the entire future because the laws [of physics that govern this chunk of spacetime] are deterministic," says Cortês. "The future is entirely written, it's just not accessible to us [inside the block] at this point."]
The answer is simple, since you cannot predict the future (or you might run a fortuneteller business), so you are wrong with the above statement.....It is just that simple
