As COP28, the 2023 United Nations Climate Change Conference, kicks off we look at how maths can help understand the climate crisis.

How do you create dramatic film out of mathematics? We find out with writer and director Timothy Lanzone.

Mathematics plays a central role in understanding how infectious diseases spread. This collection of articles looks at some basic concepts in epidemiology to help you understand this fascinating and important field, and set you up for further study.

Find out why the formula we use to work out conditional probabilities is true!

- We talk about a play that explores the fascinating mathematical collaboration between the mathematicians GH Hardy and Srinivasa Ramanujan.

Wave interference is a such misnomer. There is no such thing as wave interference. On the contrary, the waves are passing each other without any distortion ( providing the medium through which the waves are traveling is elastic enough).

What we are calling interference is the wave traveling through medium which has been distorted by for example another wave.

Double slit experiment may indicate that there is a medium which is being distorted by photon or electron traveling through the other slit.

It would be very interesting to check the time distance between electron passing through one slit and electron through the other slit within which so called interference is still occuring.
