Researchers at Bristol have overturned a 60-year old equation and discovered a new way of varying the thickness of fluid film coatings.
Visualising integer solutions to polynomial equations
Wooley, Browning and Booker are investigating interactions between geometry and arithmetic in the context of integer solutions to polynomial equations.
There are very few analytical tools for dealing with complex systems. We need to invent new mathematics. The Bristol Centre for Complexity Sciences is rising to the challenge.
Thorough mixing — whether kneading dough or comparing DNA samples — is essentially a process of stretching and folding the substances so that every part of one visits every part of the other and loses track of its original position.
Riemann and Random matrix theory
When Keating and Snaith's formula was used to calculate the next moment of the Riemann zeta function, it coincided with the number theorists' suggestion: 24,024.
Haar-Fisz transforms operate on the wide range of problems where the local signal variance is related to the local signal level.
A £4.2m initiative to revitalise the discipline of mathematical statistics in the UK is underway at Bristol University mathematics department.
If quantum correlations were stronger, we would live in a world in which communication complexity is trivial.
