A decades-old method called the “bootstrap” is enabling new discoveries about the geometry underlying all quantum theories.
A former Riverdale Country School teacher convicted of bedding his 16-year-old geometry student was designated a level-two sex offender.
First some mathematics items: Igor Shafarevich, one of the great figures of twentieth century algebraic geometry and algebraic number theory, died this past weekend at the age of 93. Besides his many contributions to mathematics research, he was also a … Continue reading ?
From Chronicle of Higher Education: “Changes to voting rules that used to be considered by courts before they could be implemented,” Ms. Duchin says, “are now implemented first and the courts consider them after the fact.” Because of the increase … Continue reading ?
(King's College London) Our genes play a significant role in how anxious we feel when faced with spatial and mathematical tasks, such as reading a map or solving a geometry problem, according to a new study by researchers from King's College London.
A re-examination of the iconic John Constable work, Salisbury Cathedral from the Meadows, has found that the original 1831 exhibited version of the painting did not have a rainbow – and that it was added later to correspond with the time of his best friend's death over a year later.
"There is nothing preliminary about the 10 color studies. Each of them is a fully realized possibility," says ArtsATL's Jerry Cullum.
Journey from the contemporary geometries of Tofer Chin to the darker side of the mescaline-fueled art of the 1950s.
Proposed solution to geometry puzzle allows an object’s structure to be determined from limited information.
Remember the animation showing how focal length impacts the portrait? When you shoot with different focal lengths and your subject takes the same space in the frame, you’ll get a certain amount of distortion. As a matter of fact, this is one of the reasons why camera “adds ten pounds”. Show More Summary
If you like fast, punishing games like the famous - or infamous - Geometry Dash [$1.99], the upcoming Rubix Revolution might scratch a similar itch. As you can see from the trailer below, the game by 111 Games is all about hopping your way out of trouble as you navigate spikes, drops, and all kinds of
When two mathematicians raised pointed questions about a classic proof that no one really understood, they ignited a years-long debate about how much could be trusted in a new kind of geometry.
You might be familiar with the oldest framing tool available to photographers and film makers – the splayed fingers in a rectangle to frame a shot. It’s a familiar trope and almost a thumb rule. But geometry trumps the index finger and the thumb when you are trying to capture the perfect shot. Show More Summary
Versatile representation of a physical board, with handy digital tools.
What You'll Be Creating Every snowflake is different, but they all follow rules of fractal geometry in a way, so we can use these rules to draw a realistic snowflake with just a few steps. It's easier than you think! But if you wantShow More Summary
A Twist on Cutlery This chic cutlery set is named “Giro” (from the Italian word for “turn”) for both its twist in the geometry and how the cutlery is turned...
Every year in Tucson the Arizona Winter School takes place, with a five day program on some topic in arithmetic geometry aimed mainly at advanced graduate students, designed to get them involved in current research-level topics. This year’s topic (Perfectoid … Continue reading ?
Using observations of molecules in the protostar L1527 taken by the ALMA observatory in northern Chile, a group of researchers have uncovered new clues to understanding how dust in a collapsing molecular cloud can shed angular momentum and penetrate beyond an area known as the 'centrifugal barrier' to find its way to the surface of the forming star.
PBS Space Time host Matt O’Dowd demonstrates how geometry can help visualize spacetime and explains how causality, distance, and time are related. In this episode we dive deeper into the relationship between space and time and explore how we can geometrically map the causality of the universe and increase our understanding of how time and […]
