an idea not communicated can scarcely be said to exist
As an academic I spend most of my time producing mathematics that very
few people understand. However, unless you can justify your research to
the man in the street, i.e. the tax payer who funds the research, then
what is the point of your research? With this aim in mind I spend much
of my time doing outreach work.
Below you will find a selection of videos, sound clips and articles popularising many different mathematical aspects.

Zombies
In 2009 Robert Smith? wrote a mathematical biological paper on modelling an outbreak of zombies. His conclusions were bleak as it seems that if the dead should rise, there will be no room for the living. In 2010 he sent out an email call to his mathematical colleagues, asking if anyone was interested in writing a chapter for the book "The Mathematics of Zombie Invasion". I immediately jumped at the chance! The book came out Halloween 2014. However, if you can not get the book, I often give talks about my work at many different science festivals and workshops.
