These are the show notes for episode 47 of the Travels in a Mathematical World Podcast. 47 is prime and is the ‘quintessential random number’, a popular in joke; see the 47 society or the Wikipedia page 47 (as an in joke).

This week on the podcast Mark Blyth of University of East Anglia (UEA) talked to me about his work applying fluid dynamics and elastomechanics to problems in biology and medicine. You can find more information on links between mathematics and biology at UEA at the UEA Research in Mathematical Biology webpage.
