A conversation about mathematics between the UK and USA from Pulse-Project.org. This week Samuel and Peter spoke about: Make Britain Count open letter to Michael Gove (but do they know their four times table?); Higgs boson-like particle discovery claimed at LHC (or, perhaps, Confirmed: the Higgs boson does exist); Two new open access journals in mathematics, Forum of Mathematics, Pi and Forum of Mathematics, Sigma; World's Shifting Center of Gravity; Urban World: Cities and the Rise of the Consuming Class; Maths expert creates formula for 'perfect' tennis serve; Ready, a program for exploring continuous cellular automata including reaction-diffusion equations; Émilie; Museum of Mathematics Field Trip Reservations; Abel Prize 2013 call for nominations; Help Samuel spot the error in a proof of the exact value of pi; and more.
