Over three years since their last album, get ready to reenter the Shaolin. The legendary Wu-Tang Clan is back and looking to continue their iconic 25 year run with their new album The Saga Continues. This project marks the first release from 36 Chambers Alc, a new lifestyle company from RZA and Mustafa Shaikh. The 17-track compilation is […]
Bloodstain pattern analysis is used in murder investigations - analysts draw on chemistry, mathematics and physics to determine the area of origin
Nature has a way of making complex shapes from a set of simple growth rules. The curve of a petal, the swoop of a branch, even the contours of our face are shaped by these processes. What if we could unlock those rules and reverse engineer nature's ability to grow an infinitely diverse array of shapes?
Following the coup d'etat in July 2016 attributed to Fethullah Gülen, the Turkish government had cleansed its university libraries. Notably, it had ordered the destruction of 1 800 000 copies of different manuals (including mathematics) published by publishing houses linked to the preacher or simply bearing his initials.

There is a relatively new field of research known as computational psychiatry, which focuses on the development of mathematical models to better understand defects in the brain — defects that lead to adverse behaviors. A new study published in the journal Neuron discusses findings from […]
Stereo Williams sat down to talk about 'The Saga Continues', the state of the Wu-Tang Clan, Eminem's anti-Trump freestyle--and Azealia Banks. Continue reading…
The Mathematical Corporation discusses how modern technology can be leveraged in the present for a competitive advantage.
Even if you have no particular interest in the history of mathematical typography (I don’t, even though I once wanted to be a mathematician), if you have any interest at all in typography, especially the old-fashioned hot-type kind, you will enjoy Eddie Smith’s From boiling lead and black art: An essay on the history of […]
From John Lennox's God's Undertaker, 52-53. The great mathematician David Hilbert, spurred on by the singular achievements of mathematical compression, thought that the reductionist programme of mathematics could be carried out to such...Show More Summary
The 17-track compilation is a production project from Mathematics.
I don’t know that anybody necessarily expected a new Wu-Tang project featuring nearly the entire original lineup, but here we are. Helmed by producer Mathematics and executive-produced by RZA, the two lead singles from The Saga Continues were both excellent and bode well for the rest of the album. Show More Summary

(North Carolina State University) A proof-of-concept study finds participation in dance programs helps students -- including those in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) disciplines -- develop skills such as creativity and persistence that benefited them in the classroom and beyond.
If you’re trying to find out how you can watch Uruguay vs. Bolivia in the World Cup qualifier, you’ve come to the right place. Unless a series of mathematical miracles goes against Uruguay in the other World Cup qualifiers Tuesday night, Uruguay will qualify for the World Cup after they finish their game against Bolivia.

Not going to class isn't typically something good to boast about. But perhaps the late Vladimir Voevodsky is the exception to the rule. Voevodsky is credited with founding new fields of mathematics, such as motivic homotopy theory, and a computer tool to help check mathematical proofs, as the New York Times explored in an obituary this week.

Before winning the highest award in mathematics, Voevodsky entered graduate school without a degree.
Switching to e-cigarettes won't solve all the health problems smokers face. For example, e-cigarettes are still addictive, and studies suggest that they may be bad for heart health. Using mathematical models, researchers calculated how...Show More Summary
