  • Pebbles on Mars and the Gömböc
    22 March 2017
    If you go down to the plaza today, you may witness a huddle of people surrounding the glass cabinet, pointing and gazing at the Gömböc, a mathematical shape that retains its equilibrium no matter which way it is positioned. More than that, the Gömböc has emerged as the key to understanding shape evolution in non-living nature.

  • Aircraft turning on the runway: how fast can they go?
    02 November 2016
    Planes don’t make money when they’re not in the air, so airlines want to know how fast they can move their passenger jets when they’re on the ground. But airliners’ tricycle design isn’t made for efficiency on the tarmac, and that’s where Professor Bernd Krauskopf’s mathematical modelling is providing valuable insights.
