Bitcoin: Beanie Babies for Techno-Libertarians?

Bitcoin now at $16,600.00. Those of you in the old school who believe this is a bubble simply have not understood the new mathematics of the Blockchain, or you did not cared enough to try. Bubbles are mathematically impossible in this new paradigm. So are corrections and all else pic.twitter.com/go9v0w92zk — John McAfee (@officialmcafee) December […]

In tax push, Trump's team uses a dubious growth estimate

The Treasury Department just gave Republicans ammunition that their tax cuts would pay for themselves. But the one-page memo relies on a mathematical gimmick: It includes an assumption that tax … Click to Continue »

Unravelling the mysteries of extragalactic jets

University of Leeds researchers have mathematically examined plasma jets from supermassive black holes to determine why certain types of jets disintegrate into huge plumes.

Interview with Mathematician and Physicist Arnold Neumaier

Please give us a brief background on yourself Over 40 years ago, I studied mathematics, physics and computer science in Freiburg and Berlin (Germany). My Ph.D. thesis was in pure mathematics, but I was later drawn more and more into applied mathematics. Since 1994 I am a full professor of mathematics at the University of […]

Hydropower dam energy without sacrificing Mekong food supply: New research offers solution

Nearly 100 hydropower dams are planned for construction along tributaries off the Mekong River's 2,700-mile stretch. In a new article, researchers present a mathematical formula to balance power generation needs with the needs of fisheries downstream.

How to Use Adobe Photoshop's Curvature Pen Tool

What You'll Be Creating Vector illustration is very versatile and beautiful, but for many artists it's too mathematical and unintuitive to create. Drawing with Bezier curves doesn't feel like drawing at all!  However, the newest update...Show More Summary

Scientists 'paint' the world's smallest Mona Lisa on the world's largest DNA canvas

In 2006, Caltech's Paul Rothemund (BS '94)—now research professor of bioengineering, computing and mathematical sciences, and computation and neural systems—developed a method to fold a long strand of DNA into a prescribed shape. The...Show More Summary

How to separate linear and ring-shaped molecules

What is the difference between linear chains and rings composed of the same material? The molecular building blocks are identical, but from a mathematical point of view, the two structures have distinct topologies, ring and linear chain. Show More Summary

Nanomaterials: How to separate linear and ring-shaped molecules

(University of Vienna) What is the difference between linear chains and rings composed of the same material? The molecular building blocks are identical, but from a mathematical point of view the structures have distinct topologies, ring and linear chain. Show More Summary

Mathematical Quantum Field Theory – Gauge Symmetries

This is one chapter in a series on Mathematical Quantum Field Theory. The previous chapter is 9. Propagators. The next chapter is 11. Reduced phase space. 10. Gauge symmetries An infinitesimal gauge symmetry of a Lagrangian field theory (def. 10.3 below) is a infinitesimal symmetry of the Lagrangian which may be freely parameterized, hence “gauged”, […]
