Mathematician and complexity scientist Dr Hannah Fry explains how maths can help you to better understand your love life. Love and romance can be something of a roller coaster and hard to define but, Fry argues, that does not stop us finding patterns in such things as dating, divorce, sex and marriage. Fry applies mathematical formula to questions such as: What is the chance of finding love? How likely is it that love will last? How do online dating algorithms work? Can game theory help us to decide who to approach in a bar? And at what point in life should you settle down?

Fry is based at University College London’s Centre for Advanced Spatial Analysis and is a presenter on the Number Hub strand of BBC Worldwide’s YouTube channel Headsqueeze. The Mathematics of Love grew out of a TED talk she gave that attracted more than 500,000 online views.
