Dispersion lies at the heart of many dramatic phenomena - explore the maths that explains it! ...

If a shape has equal sides with 90 degree angles between them then it's a square, right? Well, not quite... ...

There are several ways in which it can and studies suggest they could be safe and effective. ...

Here's our coverage from the International Congress of Mathematicians 2022, including the Fields Medals and other prizes. ...

Researchers have developed a technique that enables a robot to learn a new pick-and-place task with only a handful of human demonstrations. This could allow a human to reprogram a robot to grasp never-before-seen objects, presented in random poses, in about 15 minutes. ...

Studying how brain cells respond to signals from their neighbors can aid the understanding of cognition and development. However, experimentally measuring the brain's activity is complicated. Neuron models provide a non-invasive way to investigate the brain, but most existing models are either...

Math is the language of the physical world, and some see mathematical patterns everywhere: in weather, in the way soundwaves move, and even in the spots or stripes zebra fish develop in embryos. ...

Researchers have used computer simulations to show that weather phenomena such as sudden downpours could potentially be modified by making small adjustments to certain variables in the weather system. They did this by taking advantage of a system known as a 'butterfly attractor' in chaos theory,...
