The Isaac Newton Institute: Creating eureka moments
Over the last few decades physicists have been developing a curious idea. Perhaps the world we inhabit is a hologram, lacking a crucial feature of the world as we perceive it: the third dimension.
In this episode of our podcast we discuss the challenges involved in moving away from fossil fuels.
In this year's advent calendar we revisit some of our favourite episodes of our Maths on the move podcast. From the maths of chocolate to the maths of music, there's something here for everyone!
The word "algorithm" has probably got more usage over the last few years than it has in its entire history. But what exactly is an algorithm?
New research reported at this year's Black Heroes of Mathematics conference is changing lives around the world.
Can mathematics help reshape our hospital networks?
We look at an important recent result exploring higher-dimensional holes in higher-dimensional spheres.
We talk to Stuart Johnston who uses mathematics to find out how noise pollution in the oceans impacts whales.
Generating electricity without the use of fossil fuels is not just an engineering and industrial challenge, it is also a huge mathematical challenge.
Non-linear relationships are tricky relationships. Find out why here.
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!
