ERC Funded PhD Studentship26 October 2016Applications are invited for an ERC funded PhD Studentship in Mathematics starting in October 2017
Research Associate / Senior Research Associate in Mathematics17 October 2016Applications are invited for postdoctoral research opportunities in Mathematics, tenable from 1 October 2017 (or a date to be agreed). This is funded by an ERC Advanced Grant “Integrable Random Structures”, which aims to develop and study integrable models in probability; it covers a wide range of topics including random matrices, enumerative combinatorics, integrable systems and random polymers.
Communication, Careers and Enterprise student starts own business5 October 2016One year after his graduation, I spoke to Akshay Sandri about the app he hopes to unleash on UK restaurants within the next six months. Currently trialling in a few restaurants in Hyderabad, India, where the technology is being developed, customers walk into a restaurant, open the DineEzy app and see the relevant menu appear. The app detects the customer’s exact location in the restaurant, so when ready, they order food using the app and later as they walk out of the premises their account is automatically charged, saving time and improving the experience for customer and restaurant.
On the cusp of quantum supremacy5 August 2016The first step on a new path to quantum supremacy has been proposed by a mathematician from the University of Bristol.
Discussion paper to be presented at RSS International Conference 20164 August 2016We are very excited to announce that Prof Guy Nason and Dr Ben Powell will presenting a discussion paper at a plenary session of this year's Royal Statistical Society International Conference. This is a prestigious annual conference at which articles appearing in the Journal of the Royal Statistical Society are presented and discussed. The discussion and authors' replies are later published in the relevant Journal series.
‘Facebook’ for mathematical functions aims to solve Riemann’s hypothesis10 May 2016A solution to the greatest unresolved problem in pure mathematics – Riemann’s hypothesis – could be coming closer, thanks to a remarkable international collaboration involving mathematicians from the University of Bristol and University of Warwick, part-funded by a £2.24million grant from the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC).
