We accelerate discovery to reach the future faster


    23 challenges

    To mark the launch of ARIA, which tackles the toughest problems, we made a list of the 23 most important mathematical challenges of our time.

  • Papers

    The physics of finance

    Statistical physics contributes to new models and metrics for the study of financial network structure, dynamics, stability and instability.


    Back to work

    As we emerge from the biggest remote-working experiment in history, we reveal the fundamental reason why office work will win.

  • Events

    Summer board meeting

    At its summer meeting, our board meets our new finance director and discusses fundraising, core funding, research output and 23 challenges.


    Welcome Ali

    Welcome to our new finance director, Ali Emamy. His corporate and non-profit experience will be key as we attract donors and core funding.

  • Papers

    Exact linear regression

    Exact methods supersede approximations used in high-dimensional linear regression to find correlations in statistical physics problems.


    Positions map

    We combine Fellows, postdocs and visitors with staff from coding, design, communication and finance, described in our updated positions map.


    Virtual identity

    At the London Institute, our papers are our products, so we take writing and presenting them seriously. Now our papers have a new look.

  • People

    Welcome, Forrest

    Postdoctoral Research Fellow Forrest Sheldon arrives at the London Institute. He studies combinatorial design and models of reprogramming.

  • Papers

    How to count logics

    The fraction of logics that are biologically permitted can be bounded and shown to be tiny, which makes inferring them from experiments easier.

  • Papers

    The rules of life

    The bipartite nature of genetic regulatory networks means their logics are composed, which severely restricts which ones can show up in life.

  • Events

    23 challenges

    A one-day symposium of physicists and mathematicians to write down a list of the 23 most important mathematical challenges of our time.
