Thursday 1 March saw the university's Mathematical Sciences Building project officially 'topped out': an event celebrating the construction as it reaches its highest point.
To mark the occasion, representatives of each of the Computer Science, Statistics and Mathematics departments decorated a central roof steel beam with an illustration of their subject. For our department, Professor Mike Paterson FRS drew his gadget for proving that the planar 3-colourability problem is NP-hard, a piece of research from the first decade of Computer Science at Warwick that is still fundamental today and being taught to our students. Professor Paterson commented:
I am delighted to have played a part in this momentous and happy event, that celebrates the many contributions of those involved in this project as well as those who have worked towards the three departments reaching this milestone. The state-of-the-art building, constructed by local people, will foster internationally leading collaborative research and teaching in our three rapidly growing subjects.
Congratulations to Lewis Rendell and David Selby on their Google internships
Congratulations to Warwick Statistics PhD students Lewis Rendell and David Selby for obtaining Quantitative Analyst internships with Google (in Zurich and Paris respectively) for this summer!
Fourier analysis of solar EUV observations has revealed two periods within an oscillating coronal loop. This finding has exciting implications for applying seismology generally.
Congratulations to Dr Matthew Jenner, Leverhulme Early Career Research Fellow in the Department of Chemistry, who has been awarded a BBSRC Future Leader Fellowship.

University of Warwick brings TB awareness to Coventry on World TB Day
Scientists from the University of Warwick will be helping to promote an important public health message about tuberculosis (TB) this weekend in Coventry.
On World TB Day (Saturday 24 March) researchers from the Fullam lab at the University of Warwick will be running a public information stand at the Herbert Museum and Art Gallery to help raise awareness of TB and what they are trying to do to combat this deadly disease. They will also be at Coventry Library on Tuesday 27 March.
The Warwick Engineering Day is to celebrate engineering in its many forms and showcase the work at the School of Engineering at the University of Warwick.
Doors open at 10am and we're open til 4pm. School of Engineering, University of Warwick, University Road, Coventry, CV4 7AL
He spoke yesterday, Monday 19th March 2018, at WMG, University of Warwick about his passion for renewable energy.
During his event, ‘In Conversation with Robert Llewellyn’, the famous advocate of clean technologies shared his experience of involvement with this field - particularly the move to electric, connected and autonomous vehicles, and how he sees the scale and pace of this technological shift first hand.
Robert also gave his thoughts on how the media covers one of the most transformational changes of our times.
While he was at WMG’s International Manufacturing Centre, he sat in a Tesla Model X - but unlike the other spaceman recently launched into space in a Telsa car, he a had a lot more to say about our clean energy futures.
As well as the Tesla Model X, Nissan Westway were at WMG with the new Leaf, demonstrating the new e-Pedal - and Jaguar Land Rover’s I-Pace completed the line-up of cutting edge electric vehicles on the campus.
Hendrik Weber has been awarded a Philip Leverhulme prize for 2017.
