This week the Simons Center is hosting a workshop on “The Geometry and Physics of Scattering Amplitudes”, talks are available here. Last week they (and the YITP) held a one-day symposium on Trees, loops and precision QCD, based around the … Continue reading ?
Season Two, Episode 3: "The Geometry of Shadows".
The New York Post, maintaining its status as that kid in 7th grade who reeks of Axe body spray and gives people "dead arms" in geometry class, was not impressed by the Times' massive profile on the human face of homelessness. They're not even homeless, the Post sneers, wiping snot on the sleeve of its Nautica sweater. [ more › ]
When planning the Box House in Brasilia, the architects at 1:1 arquitetura:design… mainly aimed for a “new way to occupy space and form”. The result is a compact and welcoming home, displaying a simple rectangular geometry: “The main...Show More Summary
The Israeli government commissioned the project in the aftermath of the Six Day War as an experiment in geometry and architectural construction. The housing complex was planned for a stop atop a hill, just outside of Jerusalem, where over 700 modular dodecahedrons
EDWARD FRENKEL is a Russian mathematician working in representation theory, algebraic geometry and mathematical physics. He is professor of mathematics at the University of California, Berkeley, and the author of “Love and Math”, recently published by Basic Books. Show More Summary
Created in collaboration with online printing company Moo, paper engineer and illustrator Helen Friel’s “Here’s Looking At Euclid” re-imagines Oliver Byrne’s 1847 The Elements of Geometry in three dimensions. Friel first created 3D models… Helen Friel presents “Here’s Looking At Euclid” is a post by Brian Farmer on Highsnobiety.
In tribute to Mel Henderson (November 10, 1922–October 4, 2013). “I’ve been involving myself with the landscape of San Francisco since 1969—its abrupt geology, the beauty of its architectural geometry, and the diverse composition of its people. The city offers a lot of physical options for outside public events, especially events that can center around […]
Helen Friel brings geometry to life through these exquisitely designed paper sculptures. In 1847, an eccentric British mathematician named Oliver Byrne released a new edition of Euclid's famous mathematical treatise, The Elements of Geometry. Show More Summary
(Phys.org) —Proteins accomplish something rather amazing: A protein can have many functions, with a given function being determined by the way they fold into a specific three-dimensional geometry, or conformations. Moreover, the structural transitions form one conformation to another is reversible. Show More Summary
From London-based "paper engineer" (paper engineer!) Helen Friel comes this creative collection of colorful folding geometric designs. The name of the collection? "Here's looking at Euclid." GEOMETRY PUNS! We must have these. Read more...
Ali Shirazi explores the geometry of Paul Thomas Anderson's There Will Be Blood, finding the golden spirals, examples of the Rule of Thirds, and tracking shot mathematics behind the film's cinematography. Read more...
As readers know I’m not very good at mathematical economics. Actually that’s not quite right, I’m pretty good at that part of math called “geometry,” but not so good at that part of math called “algebra.” Unfortunately most economists don’t consider geometry to be math. So most people will want to skip this post, where [...]
Kid's Academy Company today is proud to announce the release and immediate availability of Shapes And Robot Tracing app. Designed for kids aged 2-6, the app introduces little learners to the world of geometry and shapes, as well as improves...Show More Summary
Primary colors, geometry, and graphic design before there was graphic design. Brain Pickings takes 450+ hours a month to curate and edit across the different platforms, and remains banner-free. If it brings you any joy and inspiration, please consider a modest donation – it lets me know I'm doing something right.
Muted lace-like panels keep the heat from the sun from penetrating the inside of the shelter while framing the views of the magnificent landscape. The geometric structure is made from triangular panes that combine rigid forms with delicate, meticulously patterned
Fifty years ago, I was sitting in a high school geometry class in Montreal when the intercom came on, piping in a live radio report that John F. Kennedy had been shot. The same thing had happened a little more than a year before, when the intercom and radio informed us that Russian warships had [...]
Cards on the table time. Math and I are not friends. Never have been. From those dreaded flash cards in elementary school to my scary geometry tutor in high school, math and I have always been at odds with each other. In college, when it was suddenly optional, I avoided the subject like the plague. Show More Summary
This video lesson about the Pythagorean Theorem gives your students hands-on practice on working out the proof of this basic theorem of geometry.
Back in 2010 — a mere 19 days before his death — Benoît Mandelbrot gave a candid and moving interview describing his life's work and how he came to devise fractal geometry, the notion that the much of the natural world is organized according to elegant and predictable mathematical principles.
