Irish Times Articles

“That’s Maths”,  a new series of articles on mathematics and its importance in society, will be published in the Irish Times, starting on 19 July 2012.

The initial article, at TM001, looks at the statistics of Usain Bolt’s performance in the 100m and the prospects for a new record at the London Olympics.

The column draws on an article,  What is the Speed Limit for Men’s 100 Meter Dash, by Prof Reza Noubary of  Bloomington University, Pennsylvania, available here (PDF).
