Podcast: Episode 1 – Professor Philip Maini, Oxford – Maths Biology

These are the show notes for episode 1 of the Travels in a Mathematical World podcast. 1 is the multiplicative identity. More facts about the number 1 from

In this episode, Professor Philip Maini of the Centre for Mathematical Biology, University of Oxford, talks about the field of mathematical biology. On his website, I’d recommend you take a look at his “Research Gallery” (link at the top of the page) for more about his work.

If this has piqued your interest, you can read a story about animal patterning and find other mathematical biology articles at plus, the online maths magazine. If you’re really interested, the IMA publishes a journal, Mathematical Medicine and Biology.

    Why is the length of the podcast not shown? Am I expected to download it to find out?

    Don’t think I’ll bother.

    I find this a very strange comment. These are the show notes for an episode of the podcast. The podcast file itself contains all the usual metadata. I’m confused as to why knowing the length in advance is such a crucial factor in deciding whether to download. If you aren’t interested to listen please feel free not to.
