Welcome to my website! I do various things to do with maths. I write about it, I research it, I talk about it, and I teach it. (I occasionally do other things too… but that’s for another time.)

You’re in the right place if you’re looking for material to do with my books Mathematics 1001, How to build a brain (a.k.a. Mathematics without the boring bits, a.k.a. various other things), The math[s] handbook, and Chaotic fishponds and mirror universes.

My writing for magazines, newspapers and other websites is listed on this page, together with some talks and interviews I’ve given. If you’re interested in my research in mathematical logic or complex systems, you can download some of my papers and notes here.

Otherwise you’ll be wanting my blog, Simple City.

If you want to get in touch, then please email me at r [DOT] elwes [AT] gmail [DOT] com, tweet me @RichardElwes, encircle me at Google+, or like me on Facebook.

If you’re not interested in any of that, then I’m not sure how I can help you. But feel free to browse around.
