Implications of alternative universes

Taming limitations of general relativity, such as the big bang singularity, by formulating theories that admit bouncing or cyclic universes.

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


We’re hiring postdocs

We’re hiring Postdoctoral Research Fellows in the theory of cell programming from the fields of physics, mathematics or machine learning.



Britain is perfectly placed to replicate the DARPA miracle, but it will need to embody the qualities that have made the agency exceptional.


Deep layered machines

The ability of deep neural networks to generalize can be unraveled using path integral methods to compute their typical Boolean functions.


A fix for overfitting

Statistical methods that normally fail for very high-dimensional data can be rescued via mathematical tools from statistical physics.
