“ThinkTank Maths (TTM) have provided us with highly innovative advances in a short timescale, having rapidly mastered areas of mathematics new to them as well as building on their existing wide range of skills. Their work is conducted in a thoroughly professional manner with good management discipline and attention to detail, provision of timely reports and presentations, and adherence to timescales.

They have the toughest recruitment procedure I have encountered.”

Professor Bill Bardo, SEAS DTC Technical Director


“The methods you developed outperform standard off-the-shelf optimisation algorithms by at least an order of magnitude for the test problem that we provided. I was also tremendously impressed when I visited your office in Edinburgh, where the team presented to me the way they developed the methods from first principles. Rather than relying on a literature search and some tweaking of existing solutions, the team really developed something new from scratch. This was a very interesting experience and the exceptional mathematical aptitude and enthusiasm of the team was clear to see.”

James Etchells, Thermal Analysis Engineer, ESA ESTEC


Collaborative Mathematical Innovation Challenges Project

“Thank you for providing the Department for Education with Think Tank Maths (TTM) Ltd’s final report on its mathematical innovation challenges project. This has been a valuable and exciting piece of work setting out the importance of mathematical research and innovation to resolving big issues of the future. The report provides a number of interesting examples that can be referenced by practitioners to help inspire mathematicians of the future.”

Stephen Stanton, Standards Division, Department for Education

“The team tackled the problem with an enthusiastic attitude and comprehensive approach. They demonstrated several skills including a reasoned mathematical analysis of the problem and the ability to rapidly prototype a solution. The end result, though produced to a tight time-scale, more than met the expectations. It was sufficient to demonstrate that a viable solution existed and allowed us to pursue a potentially valuable solution.”

Simon Brusch, Motorola


“ThinkTank brought specialist expertise to the team that was not available to us in-house. In a very tight time-scale their findings allowed us to short-cut months of research and gave us the opportunity to leap-frog our competitors. The ThinkTank pathfinder provided us with a clear roadmap for the next phase of the project.”

Dr Nick Weston, Renishaw PLC


“A great bunch, for whom nothing is too much trouble. And they come up with the goods!”
