I enjoy reading the news articles in Nature, which cover the entire physical sciences, from Bioinformatics to Machine Learning. Unfortunately, research in Mathematics and Logic is not covered. Does the Mathematics community publish something similar?

If the question is off-topic, I would gratefully appreciate suggestions where it should be asked.

    $\begingroup$ There's also Nautilus, which occasionally publishes articles about mathematical research. $\endgroup$ Commented Aug 28, 2018 at 17:10

    $\begingroup$ It might not be quite what you're looking for, but Notices of the American Mathematical Society often has expository articles for non-specialists about recent advances. $\endgroup$ Commented Aug 28, 2018 at 17:15

    $\begingroup$ Quanta looks perfect! Nautilus only has 34 Math articles in 63 issues. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ Well, the journal called Advances in Mathematics does actually seem fairly popular, though not in the sense that you are looking for. $\endgroup$ Commented Aug 30, 2018 at 8:20

"Quanta Magazine is an editorially independent online publication launched by the Simons Foundation to enhance public understanding of science."

It's free, up-to-date, intelligent, and very readable. Some of the articles appear in Wired, Scientific American, or Nautilus.

Thanks to Matthew Leingang for pointing this out.
