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 benefits.
