There are problems that are easy to solve in theory, but impossible to solve in practice. Intrigued? Then join us on a journey through the world of complexity, all the way to the famous P versus NP conjecture.

Whether you're aware of it or not, the language you use to express yourself follows strict mathematical principles.

A little bit of maths can go a long way in telling the truth from lies.

Simple mathematical rules can make for some interesting psychedelic science.

If only the fittest survive, how can we explain the evolution of altruism? Mathematics has some answers.

Why evolution through natural selection is more than a mere "theory".

Can mathematics predict the inevitable consequences of climate change? And more importantly, can it suggest ways to reduce, or even prevent some of these consequences?
