This publication showcases the work of UK mathematicians and
statisticians by describing industrial problems that have been
successfully solved, together with a summary of the financial
and/or societal impact that arose from the work. The articles are
grouped by sector, and include contributions to climate modelling,
engineering and health. The articles are based on Impact Case
Studies that were submitted to the Research Excellence Framework
(REF2014), a UK government sponsored exercise that assessed the
research quality within UK universities.There are many publications
in the realm of `popular mathematics' as well as a vast research
literature that underpins this. This work is aimed at a middle
ground between these two. Articles contain some mathematical
detail, but the emphasis is on telling the story of a successful
collaboration between academia and industry and on the results
obtained. UK Success Stories in Industrial Mathematics is therefore
accessible to a wide readership with interest in the applications
of mathematics and statistics to problems of industrial importance
and to those interested in how mathematics and statistics research
affects our everyday lives and leads to economic and societal
