Told You Maths Was Useful!
Have you ever wondered what your odds are of surviving a zombie apocalypse? Or, perhaps worse, a Conservative government?
Well, never fear – maths researchers are on the case!

In other news, Crocheting Adventures With Hyperbolic Planes has won the Bookseller magazine’s annual Diagram prize for the book with the oddest title. It seemed fairly ordinary to me, but then, I do routinely think about combining needlecrafts and maths. And I’m sure that Baboon Metaphysics seemed perfectly sensible to somebody.
And yes, this was study-related too. So there.
