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.

Honestly after I heard about this from a video I watch on YouTube, I have no explanation for how it is even possible for the results to change depending on wether or not an observer is in use or not, it’s almost like the observer alerts something i.e a program and it corrects its mistake as if it was never made in the first place. I feel like this experiment solidified my reasoning on how I think this existence we are living as a civilisation is a simulation. First of all, if we were in a simulation we would never truly find out that we were in one because that is the way that it has been designed. Now I am just a sceptic, obviously I have no hard proof or facts, but all’s I’m gonna say is, “keep an open mind to any possibility as we may just be a battery charging someone’s spacecar” - Rick and morty reference iykyk😉
