About this book

This publication showcases the work of UK mathematicians and statisticians by describing industrial problems that have been successfully solved, together with a summary of the financial and/or societal impact that arose from the work. The articles are grouped by sector, and include contributions to climate modelling, engineering and health. The articles are based on Impact Case Studies that were submitted to the Research Excellence Framework (REF2014), a UK government sponsored exercise that assessed the research quality within UK universities.
There are many publications in the realm of ‘popular mathematics’ as well as a vast research literature that underpins this. This work is aimed at a middle ground between these two. Articles contain some mathematical detail, but the emphasis is on telling the story of a successful collaboration between academia and industry and on the results obtained. UK Success Stories in Industrial Mathematics is therefore accessible to a wide readership with interest in the applications of mathematics and statistics to problems of industrial importance and to those interested in how mathematics and statistics research affects our everyday lives and leads to economic and societal benefits.

Reviews

“This book brings together 38 case studies from across the spectrum of the mathematical sciences showing how recent work has had an impact outside academia. The short articles (between five and eight pages each) are arranged by application area – climate, environment, engineering, aerospace, military and security, technology, health, business and finance – and there is something here for everyone. … this is an important book.” (Paul Glendinning, Mathematics Today, Vol. 52 (3), June, 2016)
