Mathematics and Society

“Look at social reality - and see mathematics!”

Gordon Burt

My work has different balances between mathematics and society:

pure mathematics; mathematics in different social disciplines; Values, World Society and Modelling; mathematical politics; specific topics; current projects and personal journeys.
