INI

One of the most exciting places in the mathematical world is the Isaac Newton Institute for Mathematical Sciences (INI), an international research centre and our neighbour here on the University of Cambridge's maths campus. The INI attracts leading mathematical scientists from all over the world, and is open to all. We are proud to be collaborating with the INI to bring the cutting edge mathematics that is being done there to the general public. The following content is part of this collaboration.

In this podcast mathematician Cheryl Praeger and magician Will Houstoun reveal the maths and magic behind shuffling cards.

What is group theory and why is it such an exciting area of maths? Two experts explain.

Explore the mathematical study of symmetry with this collection of content, which includes short introductions, in-depth articles, a podcast, and some magic!

Groups occur all over mathematics, so it makes sense to find a common language to talk about them all.

When things go round and round, a cyclic group may be just what you need!

A journey into the maths of card shuffling gives us a great insight into how mathematicians work.
