Department Name: Isaac Newton Institute (Math Science)

Abstract

Mathematics, with its capacity for generality and abstract reasoning, is a subject that is unique in its ability to penetrate deep within other disciplines, to provide a common language for establishing communication channels between research communities, and in the longevity of its influence. The Isaac Newton Institute for Mathematical Sciences (INI) is a visitor research centre which enables UK researchers to meet and collaborate and with top scientists in the world in a building that was designed to inspire research and catalyse collaboration. With a state of the art multi-media environment for video recording, webcasting and videoconferencing; access to libraries across Cambridge; the opportunity to interact with the wider community in nearby Institutes; and an experienced staff to provide powerful support to organisers and participants, the INI infrastructure enables participants to concentrate on their science.

Programmes are of one, four or six months duration each with between 25 and 30 researchers. They have attracted 22 Fields Medallists, and 7 Nobel, 18 Wolf and 7 Abel Prize winners since the Institute was founded in 1992. Collaborations established at INI often bear fruit over a long period; these are further encouraged by one-week Follow-up Meetings to earlier programmes. In addition to regular seminars, programmes include intense periods of instructional courses and workshops for 100 or more, often held in the UK outside Cambridge.

From the outset INI's understanding of what comprises the mathematical sciences was broad and inclusive and this breadth of vision endures. Ground-breaking results produced at INI include: uncovering a major vulnerability in ubiquitous security protocols; a paradigm shift in understanding RNA virus assembly; a glimpse of the early universe arising from the connection between the Einstein and Navier-Stokes equations; and a working algorithm that is widely used in shipping throughout Europe for predicting "freak" waves.

INI will launch the Turing Gateway to Mathematics through which it will disseminate the mathematical point of view, and try to capture and represent the all pervasive but elusive impact which mathematics has on high technology and on everyday lives.

The Scientific Steering Committee (SSC) is at the heart of a rigorous peer review process to ensure that every programme is of the highest quality. The SSC evaluates proposals in the light of the quality of the research proposed; its novelty and timeliness; the opportunities it offers to bring different branches of mathematics and/or application areas together; demand from and value to the UK community; and the potential impact which the special environment of INI can engender. The SSC also takes account of activities at other Institutes worldwide.

Through Scoping Meetings devised to support the development of innovative multidisciplinary proposals, and through initiatives such as the "Open for Business" meetings embedded within workshops, INI plays a central role in the propagation and dissemination of cutting edge mathematics in other disciplines, business and industry.

INI is committed to supporting early career researchers, students and women working in the mathematical sciences.

INI cultivates opportunities to encourage public engagement through activities not funded by the public purse. Most recently it has participated in the Cambridge Science Festival and other high profile projects including the exhibition Intersections: Henry Moore and Stringed Surfaces held at the Royal Society and the Science Museum (4th April-20th June 2012) and support for Grenville Davey (Turner Prize 1992) as INI Artist in Residence (January-June 2012).

It fundraises assiduously to support its activities.

Planned Impact

INI operates on a world stage and contributes to international scientific advances. It selects programmes at the forefront of current developments and with world-leading scientists participating. Programmes and their Follow-up Workshops should have a long-term impact in terms of breakthroughs, new research directions and collaborations.

To reinforce INI's impact nationally, programme organisers schedule "Satellite Meetings" at UK locations where there is a corpus of expertise in the relevant field, and distinguished overseas participants are encouraged to give lectures at institutions across the UK. If the UK is strong in the field then its scientists will play a major part in the programme; if it is comparatively weak then organisers will build in strategies to disseminate knowledge and raise standards.

INI works hard to engage the mathematical sciences with society: in 2012 over 100 children and their parents enjoyed a "mathemagical" talk held at INI as part of the Cambridge Science Festival, and many others attended talks on Art, Duality and String Theory given by programme organizer, David Berman, and INI Artist-in-Residence, Turner Prize winner Grenville Davey.

It is widely recognized that the route to impact of mathematics research is often indirect and through other disciplines. By way of an example, in 1997 CM Bishop organised an INI Programme on Neural Networks and Machine Learning including a workshop that brought together experts in probability, graphs and learning machines. Out of this, his research group developed an algorithm to optimise income stream within the search engine Bing. The value to Microsoft UK (and hence the economy) was substantial.

The impact of INI extends far beyond those that attend its programmes and workshops. In addition to the traditional dissemination channels (publication of volumes and pre-prints) and subject to the consent of the speaker, the Institute streams all seminars live. High-resolution video recordings are subsequently available online in multiple formats for downloading. 600 such seminars were made available in 2010 with a further 641 in 2011 and 359 in the first half of 2012. There were approximately 130,000 views of Institute seminars in 2010, 400,000 views in 2011 and well over 200,000 in the first half of 2012. These corresponded to 33TB of data downloaded in 2010, 71.3TB in 2011 and 31.8TB in the first half of 2012.

The influence of INI is seen to be remarkable in both its breadth and depth. For instance, a panel session, Climate Change Question Time: Policy in the Face of Uncertainties, chaired by Oliver Morton (The Economist) with panelists Sir John Beddington (Government Chief Scientific Advisor), Ralph Cicerone (President of the National Academy of Sciences of the USA), Abyd Karmalo (Managing Director, Global Head of Carbon Markets, Bank of America Merrill Lynch) and Lord Adair Turner (Chairman, Financial Services Authority and Committee on Climate Change) has reached an incredibly wide audience. With over 13,000 downloads since it was first streamed live at the end of 2010, it continues to attract hundreds of viewers every month.

INI investment is predominantly in people: it promotes leadership skills (programme proposers and organisers have an almost unrivalled opportunity to shape research activity within their field) and nurtures mathematical approaches to problems in science, technology and society. It gives scientists the time to develop approaches to their research. Finally, through policy, events, monitoring of attendance patterns and support (both practical and financial), INI is working hard to increase the participation rate of women. It believes that the encouragement of female participation in research will have a significant impact on science and society for many years to come.

Title Form in art, toys and games (part of the Growth form and self-organisation programme) 
Description Mathematicians and scientists working on the physical aspects of art, on the art-making processes, and on the physics of toys- whether those made for entertainment or designed from the start to serve pedagogical purposes-are working individually, "on the side," or in small groups disconnected from one another. One of the purposes of the event was to establish links between researchers pursuing such diversions and perhaps begin forming a community. The theme of the event encompassed both the emergence of form in art, including the mathematical and physical aspects of artistic processes and techniques, and the properties and role of form in finished artworks. These issues are at the interface between science and art and the goal is to shed light on the artists' techniques and their implications for the artworks and, potentially, for art history and art appreciation. A somewhat separate but related theme concerns the dynamics of "artful" toys and devices. 
Type Of Art Artwork 
Year Produced 2017 
Impact The successful workshop took place in December 2017 with approximately 40 participants, made up of both artists and mathematicians. There were 10 different artists displaying works at the Institute during November and December 2017.

Description The science undertaken at the Institute covers the widest possible range from Astronomy to Zoology. Reports from the organisers of each of the 24 programmes to date are available on the Institute's website, with details of publications and lectures for downloading on http://www.newton.ac.uk/. To this end the Turing Gateway to Mathematics (TGM) is actively involved with Impact Acceleration and Knowledge Exchange in the Mathematical Sciences nationally, see http://www.turing-gateway.cam.ac.uk/ TGM Mission Statement The Turing Gateway to Mathematics acts as a channel for the flow of knowledge and ideas between the mathematical sciences and the users of mathematics. It does this by facilitating interactions and activities such as programmes of work, events, projects, education and training in areas where maths skills are needed. Acting as a gateway between academic mathematicians and industry, government, and other disciplines, it helps to widen access to mathematics generally and shorten pathways to impacts. Background In March 2013, the Isaac Newton Institute for Mathematical Sciences launched the Turing Gateway to Mathematics. The TGM is an impact initiative of the INI and aims to stimulate the interchange of knowledge and ideas between academics of different disciplines and users of modern mathematics. Named after Alan Turing because of his exceptionally wide influence across a very broad front, the Gateway is a channel for collaboration and cooperation between academia and industry. It will help to shorten pathways to impact and increase access to modern mathematical methods for other industrial and academic areas. Since the TGM was established, it has consolidated its presence, delivering a range of activities across a number of different themes and sectors including financial risk, space and security sectors, Big Data and public policy. In addition to running the visitor research programmes, the Isaac Newton Institute brings academic researchers in the mathematical sciences together with industrial, commercial and government organisations and individuals through activities such as the Open for Business events. The success of these events (see http://www.newton.ac.uk/ofb/ ) together with follow-up activity associated with the Institute's research programmes is a key motivation for the Turing Gateway to Mathematics initiative. The TGM continues to nurture and expand engagement, and strategic relationships with the public sector, academia and industry are ongoing. This has been achieved by facilitating interactions and activities such as programmes of work, study groups, workshops, research and training programmes, as well as less formal, small working groups in which academics and business personnel work together. This approach enables engagement between individuals and organisations who were not previously working together and helps to achieve greater synergy across activity and more creative and imaginative approaches. This flexibility helps address targeted activity, without being proscriptive.

Impact The event presented an opportunity to hear in detail about some of the current project collaborations, other industry challenges and explore new potential collaborations. Many of the challenges for this area emanate from issues around Big Data - the amount of data that imaging generates is phenomenal, yet it is in a non-traditional form which requires new mathematics and statistics to reveal the inherent knowledge it possesses. Talks provided an update on research projects and collaborations and a number of industry challenges and new collaborations were also highlighted. The Centre at Imperial provided some information on their research and the event closed with a presentation from EPSRC on the strategy and vision for this £10 million investment into high quality multidisciplinary research for better healthcare technologies and systems. A multidisciplinary approach was ensured as the event was of interest to researchers working in the field of analysis of clinical imaging, healthcare planners, clinicians, policy makers and industry partners. It presented an opportunity for knowledge exchange and networking between senior scientists from areas including mathematics, statistics, engineering, physics and biomedicine.

PI Contribution Mathematics has an important role to play in the development of effective public and social policy. During 2014 and 2015, the TGM delivered a programme of work and associated events on behalf of the EPSRC, that brought together mathematical sciences researchers and policy makers to explore modelling and problem solving. This included a launch event and two day-long workshops which further engaged stakeholders and helped disseminate information related to Cities & Infrastructure and Health & Society. A number of speakers reflected that modelling and using mathematics underpins a lot of the decisions that need to be made, so policy makers are keen to engage with academics, as there can be a number of uncertainties in relation to input to the models. The three workshops provided a good insight into how Government departments are implementing mathematical techniques to assist with policy decisions. They helped to raise the profile of the mathematical sciences and its importance to the public policy areas by engaging with nearly 200 academics and policy makers. Representatives from the Government Operational Research Service attended each of the events and were able to identify challenges, share information and highlight outputs with colleagues that could lead to future interactions between mathematicians and policy makers in Government Departments and help channel resources where there is most potential impact.

Results and Impact New Scientist Live is a festival of ideas and discovery, showcasing the biggest, best and most provocative science. The TGM & INI shared an exhibition space in partnership with the Industrial Mathematics Knowledge Transfer Network (KTN), the Institute of Mathematics and its Applications (IMA), the International Centre for Mathematical Sciences (ICMS) and the Operational Research Society (ORS).The TGM led on the administration of the event - as the main point of contact with the New Scientist Live events team as well as working with the "Mathematics in the Real World" partners. This included venue booking, liaising with partners about the stand, furniture, identifying support materials and ensuring staff cover throughout the exhibition. INI was responsible for the design and production of the foam cube giveaways - where visitors were able to construct small coloured cubes with different shapes cut out of each side. Each partner provided their own display material for the stand, as well as one mathematical related question for a quiz. Visitors were asked to submit answers to all of the questions, for the chance to be entered into a prize draw to win a tablet computer. Over 30,000 visitors attended the event and 382 entries were made to the competition. Visitors to the stand asked many questions related to mathematics- including wanting to know about additional support for school children studying maths.

Results and Impact The TGM and INI have played key roles in the Review of Knowledge Exchange in the Mathematical Sciences. This has involved facilitating meetings, leading on the development of an online survey into aspects of mathematical sciences delivery and helping to collect relevant evidence. A key objective of the review has been to gauge what people want out of KE with mathematical sciences, identify obstacles to the process and gain consensus on what constitutes good and bad practice in KE for various kinds of end-users. As well as seeking examples of best practice in knowledge exchange from UK mathematical sciences and elsewhere; models for supporting, incentivising, promoting and providing governance of mathematical knowledge exchange activities will be reviewed. In March 2018, the results of this Review will be made public at a House of Lords launch event-both TGM and INI will attend and have been key in ensuring as wide a group of relevant attendees as possible.

Results and Impact A one-day event to mark 'Women in Data Science' was held at INI as part of the Data Linkage and Anonymisation Programme. The event was organised as, whilst the field of Data Science is booming, comparatively few women are entering it. The event was asking Why? What are the obstacles and opportunities facing them if they do? The path to change is challenging, but there are women out there who can testify that it's possible.
