Mathematical modelling lives a varied life. It links the grey squirrel invasion in the UK to the analysis of how tumour cells invade the body; Alan Turing's model for pattern formation gives insight into animal coat markings and Premier League Football Shirts; and models for Excitability have been used to model the life cycle of the cellular slime mold and heart attacks.

Philip Maini will reveal all in our latest Oxford Mathematics Public Lecture. Philip is Professor of Mathematical Biology in the University of Oxford.
