Lithium-ion batteries: A case study of mathematics and manufacturing

By Dr Iain Moyles Lithium-ion batteries are everywhere in our society.  They power the things that entertain us (phones, computers), the things that transport us (cars, planes, etc.), and even the things that save our lives (pacemakers and other implantable devices)!  They are so ubiquitous that in 2012, over 660 million cylindrical lithium-ion cells were […]
