What the World looks like in Numbers


The worlds of Mathematics and Medicine are inexorably linked. Mathematics underpins the full spectrum of medicine, from the most basic of medical functions - taking a patient's pulse - to the most complex computational analysis such as that used in Artificial intelligence. The father of modern mathematical medicine was Archibald Pitcairne1, who developed the theory of iatromathematics (mathematics and medicine) some 300 years ago.1 Today we are swamped with mathematical data, and it's often difficult to make sense of. What the World looks like in Numbers unpacks the important data of the day (and some previously unknown facts) to provide you with information that is easy to understand, educational and engaging.
