Is technology a machine for creating itself?

Developing a statistical physics model of recursive innovation in which technologies become the building blocks for new technologies.

The London Institute for Mathematical Sciences gives scientists the freedom and support to make fundamental discoveries.


Back to basics

In The Spectator, the London Institute talks about the value of basic science and what the British government should do to promote it.


High-dimensional inference

Developing a theory of high-dimensional statistical inference using analytic tools from the statistical physics of disordered systems.


Modelling biology

Scientists discuss the potential of mathematical modelling in biology across problems in cell programming, immunology and gene regulation.


Intelligence of graphs

Predicting the behaviour of graphs and processes on them by treating topological patterns as constraints on a random graph ensemble.
