ASOR BLOG: Zodiac Calendars and Angelic Teaching in the Dead Sea Scrolls (Helen R. Jacobus).Nothing in these manuscripts indicates they are part of mythological books. When reconstructed it can be seen that they contain real astronomical calendars, and actual mathematical material. But angels are at the forefront.
Long before there were computers that could fit in your pocket - or your living room, for that matter - complex mathematical problems were solved by hand, in a long, tedious, and focus-intensive process of solving, re-solving, checking, then double checking. Show More Summary

The physicist, mathematician and author, most recently, of “Dreams of Earth and Sky” says the best books he knows about mathematics and physics are nearly a hundred years old.
It's literally like they did a mathematical formula here. Hmmm, Marvel originally hired her to direct their second movie about a superhero based on a pagan god? AND she's a woman? Bam. Patty Jen...
A new paper proposes mathematical models to analyze political decision-making. "Mathematics is important in many aspects of social behavior. Politics is just one of these aspects, since some of the typical behavior in politics can be characterized by suitable quantities which, usually, evolve in time," says an author. Show More Summary

For alien hunters, the last couple of weeks have been a roller coaster ride. First there were tantalizing hints that so-called ‘Fast Radio Bursts’ (FRBs) scattered across the deep sky tended towards “integerized” mathematical patterns. News of this remote possibility, in turn, created a minor news flap over whether these [...]
