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

When you let go of the notions of distance, area, and angles, all you are left with is holes.

Join us as we follow Kathryn Hess on a mathematical mystery tour of the marvellous intricacy of the brain!

If you love triangles as much as we do, we have great news – you can have them in any dimension you want!

Adele talks about her work on topology, inspired by spheres, doghnuts, and the power of maths to capture intuition.

Masaki Kashiwara wins the Chern medal for his "outstanding and foundational

contributions to algebraic analysis and representation theory sustained over a period of

almost 50 years."

In a previous article we found a Möbius strip in Bach's music. This time it's a doughnut shape.

Discover (and listen to) the Möbius strip that's hidden within one of Bach's famous canons.

This year's Nobel Prize for Physics brings together the physics of materials with one of our favourite areas of maths – *topology*. In this final article in a series, we asked Fiona Burnell to explain the maths behind the work, and how it may help lead to quicker and smaller electronics, and even the elusive quantum computer.
