Year of Mathematical Biology 2018

The year of Mathematical Biology 2018 is a joint venture of the European Mathematical Society (EMS) and the European Society for Mathematical and Theoretical Biology (ESMTB). The main objectives are to celebrate the huge increase and importance of applications of mathematics to biology and life sciences in the last years and to foster the feedback loop between life sciences and mathematics for years to come.

Snapshots of modern mathematics

The Mathematisches Forschungsinstitut Oberwolfach (MFO) publishes “snapshots of modern mathematics“ openly accessible on the internet. The snapshots are brief, understandable articles on current mathematical research topics. They address themselves at teachers, secondary school students, science journalists as well as the general mathematically inclined public. Read more

Mathematics in foreign languages

Mathematics knows no national borders, and one is often called upon to converse about mathematics in a language that is not one’s native tongue. To make this easier for you, we have gathered here some information on this topic: The Dictionary of Mathematical Concepts in European languages: How do you say ‘square root’ in Portuguese? Or ‘equation’ in Turkish? The Dictionary of Mathematical Symbols: How, for example, do you say ‘47/11’ in Italian? These dictionaries may be of help in understanding texts, but they do not equip one for speaking or writing mathematics in another language. Read more

Dr. MATHS RANDOMNESS SHOW • Steve Humble

Understanding if events are random or have some underlying structure is a fascinating area of mathematics, filled with great discoveries. A Math Magic show with Mr. Math. In the short run, chance may seem to be volatile and unfair. Considering the misconceptions, inconsistencies, paradoxes and counter intuitive aspects of probability, it is not a surprise that as a civilization it has taken us a long time to develop some methods to deal with this.
