Dear ASCers,

The latest podcast from Up Close is now available:

"The world by numbers: How mathematics explains objects and events"


Mathematician Prof Chris Budd discusses how mathematics seeks to explain
and predict real life phenomena -- from the simple movement of objects to
complex, “chaotic” systems such as the weather. Presented by Dr Shane

"It's change which is important. As change is all about us and everything
we do involves change, this is why differential equations are so useful in
understanding the world." -- Prof Chris Budd
