The Isaac Newton Institute: Creating eureka moments

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.

Happy birthday Isaac Newton Institute!

The INI is celebrating its 30th birthday. What is it and what is it do for maths and mathematicians?

Maths on the red carpet – Fields Medallist Hugo Duminil-Copin

In this podcast we talk to Hugo Duminil-Copin, who tells us how his work in statistical physics brings together his two loves – maths and physics.

Maths on the red carpet - Fields Medallist James Maynard

In this podcast we talk to James Maynard, who has won a 2022 Fields Medal for his spectacular contributions to number theory.

Maths on the red carpet – Fields Medallist Maryna Viazovska

We are very pleased to announce the winners of Fields Medals 2022, as well as the all the other prizes from the ICM 2022, and talk to Fields Medallist Maryna Viazovska.

A short introduction to the work of Mark Braverman

Fields Medallist Duminil-Copin's work in statistical physics brings together his two loves – maths and physics.

A short introduction to the work of James Maynard

Maynard went from a fascination with numbers as a young child to making spectacular contributions to number theory that have earned him a Fields Medal.

A short introduction to the work of June Huh

Huh may have had relatively late start in mathematics but his work with maths you can feel and touch has won him a Fields medal.

A short introduction to the work of Maryna Viazovska

Viazovska is only the second woman to receive a Fields Medal, for her ground-breaking proof to a problem we're all familiar with.

The Fields Medals 2022: Maryna Viazovska

Maryna Viazovska has won one of this year's Fields Medals for a ground-breaking result in the theory of sphere packings.

The Gauss Prize 2022: Elliott Lieb

Elliott Lieb has been awarded the 2022 Gauss Prize for outstanding contributions to physics, chemistry, and pure mathematics.

The Chern Medal 2022: Barry Mazur

Barry Mazur has received the 2022 Chern Medal for profound discoveries in topology, arithmetic geometry and number theory.
