A conversation about mathematics between the UK and USA from Pulse-Project.org. This week Samuel and Peter spoke about: A-level results and the 'Brian Cox effect'; AMS Election and Fellows Proposal; arXiv at 20; 13 year old makes Solar Power breakthrough by harnessing the Fibonacci Sequence; Meet Beau: The maths genius dog who can add, subtract and do square roots... as long as he gets a biscuit in return; Hyenas can count like monkeys; Hard Math is Patentable; Detexify; they talk to special guest Matt Parker from SciFoo and special guest Katie Steckles about Everything and nothing: a new research performance project exploring the possible shapes of the universe; and they introduce their over-hyped new project Second-Rate Minds.
