mathematical modelling

Mathematical models can help the nation return to (some sort of) normality.

How far can virus-carrying droplets fly in different environments — from buses to supermarkets? Maths can provide some answers.

Will we one day have digital versions of our entire body to help us make medical and life style decisions and see what medical treatments are right for us? Find out in this podcast.

An urgent call has gone out to the scientific modelling community to help fight against the COVID-19 pandemic. Two Cambridge mathematicians are helping to lead the charge.

How do mathematical models of COVID-19 work and should we believe them? We talk to an epidemiologist, who has been working flat out to inform the government, to find out more.

Ray Goldstein explains what little green algae have told us about evolution the maths of synchronisation.

How do green algae manage a perfect breaststroke even though they haven't got a brain? Enter the maths of synchronisation.

Human beings are wilful and don't always act rationally. Yet, mathematical models of the behaviour of crowds are surprisingly accurate.
