We’re really excited to share the latest issue with you. Among the many articles, we have an interview with Martin Hairer, a step by step for quantum teleportation, some pondering on mathematical nomenclature and there’s even an article for fans of canals and bridges . There will also be all the regular features you’ve come to know and love, including Dear Dirichlet (the fan favourite!), our crossnumber and more!

We will once again be hosting a party to celebrate the launch too, towards the end of the month. Our sponsors G-Research have kindly agreed to host us again, on 28 November in central London, where there will be a maths quiz, pizza and drinks. Find out more and book a free ticket for the event here. Note that bookings will close at midday on 25 Nov.
