The Newton Gateway has set up a mathematical sciences network using the Knowledge Hub digital platform. Much of the work of the Newton Gateway to Mathematics involves helping to build communities and it is often the case that it is necessary to join up researchers from multiple disciplines and further sub-fields. The new network is currently in development, but we believe this platform will strengthen our ability to do this by providing better ways to connect, exchange knowledge, ideas, insight and experience. You can access it online and request to join some of the special interest groups.

The Gateway has been working with partners Dstl and PA Consulting to create a special interest group for the Challenges in the Electromagnetic Environment programme of work. A key aspect to this activity has been to apply mathematically led solutions to defined challenges in the Electromagnetic environment and develop new approaches, creating exciting new possibilities in the field.

The creation of the group using the Knowledge Hub digital platform will help to establish and build a joined up multi-disciplinary UK community for this area. The Dstl Electromagnetic Environment activities have brought together individuals from multiple areas with a wide array of expertise, including from machine learning, information theory, optimisation, signal processing, radio astronomy, electronic engineering, physics, statistics, wave theory, image analysis – and many more.

A hybrid event – The Future of Mathematical Challenges in the Electromagnetic Environment is running on 27th-28th July at the Isaac Newton Institute and virtually.
It will report on the progress made on the various research endeavours and projects over the last two years and will include the announcement of 3 new challenges:
•       Resilience of closed protocols
•       Finding the hops
•       Optimal task assignment in a swarm.

The new special interest Electromagnetic Environment Group will also be officially launched at this event.
