Introduction It is a remarkable fact that consideration of very elementary concepts in geometry often leads quickly into deep and unexpected mathematical terrain. In high school and even college, such complexities are usually treated cursorily or omitted altogether, in order to avoid bogging down coverage of the essentials. In this article, we delve, at least […]
A joint research project by Tampere University of Technology's mathematics laboratory and the Natural Resources Institute Finland (Luke) has developed a new method of recognising tree species based on laser scanning measurements. The method enables the calculation of classification features in a completely new way.
With recent reports showing Australian performance in Mathematics has stagnated over the years, Dr Catherine Attard from Western Sydney University believes the new school year is a time for parents to take the extra step to help their children succeed academically.
"When the world is mad," wrote legendary British scholar G.H. Hardy, "a mathematician may find in mathematics an incomparable anodyne." So does that mean that those who consider the ascension Friday of Donald J. Trump to the most powerful office in the land to be folly should instead bury their...

For the past several years, Jessica Cantlon has been working to understand how humans develop the concept of numbers, from simple counting to complex mathematical reasoning. Early in her career at the University of Rochester, the assistant professor of brain and cognitive sciences began studying primates in her search for the origins of numeric understanding.
“Our universe isn’t just described by math, but it is math in the sense that we’re all parts of a giant mathematical object.” – Max Tegmark I knew virtual reality was going to make mathematical education more effective. I just didn’t realize it was going to be so beautiful. With the recent surge of progress and […]
By definition, the exercise of clemency is an act of mercy, not the meting out of mathematical justice. President Obama’s decision to commute the sentence of Chelsea (formerly Bradley) Manning is a defensible use of that power. The obvious argument for mercy is Manning’s recent ordeal as a transgender...
Introduction: The purpose of this Insight is to explain permanent magnets in a way that is in agreement with advanced textbooks on the subject, and that emphasizes the results in these textbooks without requiring nearly the mathematics that these textbooks use. The magnetic fields from a permanent magnet can readily be understood by looking […]
With novel mathematical methods, scientists have come up with a new estimate for the mass of the Milky Way.
A research team found that a mathematical technique, when applied to artworks, could detect signs of neurodegeneration in the artist. The post Using Famous Paintings to Detect Early Signs of Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s appeared first on Hyperallergic.
When I first heard of automated theorem proving, I imagined computers being programmed to search for mathematical theorems interesting to a wide audience. Maybe that’s what a few of the pioneers in the area had in mind too, but that’s not how things developed. The biggest uses for automated theorem proving have been highly specialized […]
