If you're attending @ecm_8 and have any recommendations for what we should cover, let us know!
The countdown is running for the European Congress of Maths!! We can't be there but really looking froward to joining virtually. There's some great public lectures too!… @ecm_8
Lateral flow tests are now a common feature in our lives. We talked to @fearon_liz , @MartynFyles and @DeirdreHoll about what impact these tests can have on managing #COVID19… @JuniperConsort1
We hope you’re enjoying the great weather in this heat wave across Europe, like us. Don’t melt, stay hydrated and check out this article from @plusmathsorg on ice cream cones if you want to cool down your brain with some maths.…

Whether it's designing a fast car, an artificial heat valve, or understanding airborne transmission of #COVID19, computational fluid dynamics has the answers!
Congratulations! We've been in awe of @JuniperConsort1 members' expertise and dedication throughout this crisis.…
Good morning! If you haven't organised your #EURO2020 #Sweepstakes yet, we propose trying this version: it's based on players' shirt numbers! #euro2021
With all the covid we nearly forgot the #football! Here are all articles about the maths of football at a glance… #EURO2020 #Euro2021
When you get a positive test result for a disease, the chance you actually have it depends on how common the disease is
Willl #COVID19 change our expectations for clean air indoors? Read about the insights of Lidia Morawska and @CathNoakes from the recent RAMP event at @NewtonGateway…
What do we really know about the #DeltaVariant ? Here's the latest summary from @JuniperConsort1 researchers, who first alerted UK government to its threat and have now updated their work #COVID19
Cheers! Here's our contribution to Quicksort's birthday party…
Last year in Feb we ran this article in the run-up to #EURO2020 Little did we #Euro2021
Just saw some discussion on the claim reported in the @ObserverUK that more transmissible strains are less severe We recently ran an article about the evolution of "severity", possibly useful in this context #COVID19 #DeltaVariant
Not many computer algorithms get their own birthday party, but Quicksort is one of them. Its 60th is currently being celebrated at the @NewtonInstitute and we talked to its inventor, Tony Hoare, to find out how he came up with it and how it works
We have a *very* exciting afternoon ahead in the "Verified software: tools and experiments" workshop, featuring a Q&A with developer of Quicksort Tony Hoare himself. Details here: Watch live here:…

An old favourite: using hand shakes to prove the formula for summing the first n integers…
That's really exciting! We've been privileged to work with @JuniperConsort1 members on articles about their work aimed at a general audience. Find out more here…
Interested in the science behind the policies? Here is a collection of 20 articles written by modellers working on COVID-19. Each article contains an addendum of its impact.…

Lots of people today looking at our article explaining the growth rate of #COVID19 and its link to R. Hopefully it's useful!…
A favourite from the archive: writing numbers in reverse!
Overheard at @NewtonInstitute zoom meeting: "I can't share my screen unless I'm unmuted because these things don't commute." Who knew there was an algebra of zoom?

Ooo "Parallel transport" has just taken the lead!
Ahem... That should be "The Reidemeister torsion"! How could autocorrect not know!
Long before the #vaccines arrived scientists started worrying about how the virus might evolve in response. Here's some of their latest results, confirming that vaccinating quickly and widely is best @JuniperConsort1 @NewtonGateway #COVID19 #VaccineForAll
While we're waiting to see what the latest #variant of concern is doing, it's worth remembering that keeping tabs on a live pandemic is not easy (never even mind its various strains)! @JuniperConsort1 #COVID19
