Einstein's legacy may still be growing, but it's the legacy of quantum mechanics, mathematics and bizarre behavior that shines this year.
British-born scientists David Thouless, Duncan Haldane and Michael Kosterlitz were awarded this year's Nobel Prize in physics on Tuesday for work that "revealed the secrets of exotic matter," the prize committee said.
The Nobel Committee used pastries to try and explain this year's award. The post Nobel Prize in Physics Goes to Another Weird Thing Nobody Understands appeared first on WIRED.
2016 Nobel Prize in physics split among three scientists -- David J. Thouless, F. Duncan M. Haldane and J. Michael Kosterlitz -- for theoretical discoveries of topological phase transitions and topological phases of matter. Here's w...
A look at some of the details of the physics behind this year's Nobel Prize to Haldane, Kosterlitz, and Thouless for their work on topological effects in the physics of materials.
