Sport, the Arts and Entertainment

The world around us is full of relationships, correlations and patterns. Mathematics governs all of these.

The use of mathematics within the art, design and entertainment world, may not be obvious, but they have a long history. Patterns, geometric shapes and symmetry are used every day by designers and artists. Sport requires mathematics to analyse an athlete’s performance, to compute training programmes, to create the most aerodynamic cycling helmet, and so on. This section of the site will link those working within the Sport, the Arts and Entertainment sectors that use mathematics.
