Is the Universe finite or infinite? Is there infinity inside a black hole? Is space infinitely divisible or is there a shortest length? We talk to philosophers and physicists to find out.
Are there parallel universes? Universes in which, rather than reading this article, you are still asleep; in which you are happier, unhappier, richer, poorer, or even dead? The answer is "possibly". It's a controversial claim but one that has won more and more followers over the last few decades.
The BloodCounts! project is gearing up towards one of the largest-scale applications of machine learning in medicine and healthcare yet.
In this podcast we talk to Blake Sherwin about a new map of dark matter, the mysterious substance that makes up 85% of the stuff in the Universe.
PhD student Daniel Kreuter tells us about his work on the BloodCounts! project, which uses maths to make optimal use of the billions of blood tests performed every year around the globe.
How do green algae manage a perfect breaststroke even though they haven't got a brain? Enter the maths of synchronisation.
What does life after a maths degree look like?
Daniel tells us about what drew him to maths, about random walks on unusual shapes, and about an exciting summer internship which allowed him to experience life as a maths researcher.
In this interview Emma tells us about what drew her to maths, an exciting summer internship which allowed her to experience life as a maths researcher, and what she is planning for the future.
Can maths help us understand how ants, of such little brains, manage to cooperate so brilliantly?
PhD student Tamara Grossmann tells us about her work on image analysis.
There are several ways in which it can and studies suggest they could be safe and effective.
