Improving weather forecasting using mathematics


Weather affects all of us and we take a close interest in it; national and regional television news reports typically finish with a weather forecast watched by millions. Accurate weather forecasting has become essential in the transport, agricultural and energy sectors, and for managing the day-to-day operations of the emergency services. The challenge The Met […]

Talent spotting future tennis stars using statistics


Collaborating with the Lawn Tennis Association, Dr Sean Cumming and Dr Catherine Barnaby are developing new statistical methods which will help tennis coaches spot the young players who may have the greatest potential for success as an adult. Grouping young tennis players according to their physical maturity rather than their chronological age could help us […]
