There comes a time in each of our lives when we consider starting a pension plan –either on the advice of a friend, a relative, or of our own volition. The plan of choice may depend on various factors, ...
(Phys.org) —A team of physicists, two from the U.S., and one each from Poland and Spain has used Maxwell's equations to describe field lines that encode all torus knots and links. As they describe in their ...
Bubble baths and soapy dishwater, the refreshing head on a beer and the luscious froth on a cappuccino. All are foams, beautiful yet ephemeral as the bubbles pop one by one.
Picture two charged particles in a vacuum. Thanks to laws of elementary electrostatics, we can easily calculate the force these particles exert upon one another, and therefore predict their movements.
(Phys.org) -- Physicists at Lehigh have created a mathematical model that could benefit researchers who study cell motion, including cancerous cell motion, tissue healing processes and human embryonic development.
Just as a terrestrial globe cannot be flattened without distorting the distances, it seemed impossible to visualize abstract mathematical objects called flat tori in ordinary three-dimensional space. However, ...
Mathematically, is it possible to continuously deform a rough sphere into a perfect sphere? Under what situations can we solve the differential equations?
Cancer is one of the five leading causes of death. And yet, despite decades of research, there is no standardized first-line treatment for most cancers. In addition, disappointing results from predominant second-line treatments ...
(PhysOrg.com) -- The school dance committee is split; one group wants an "Alice in Wonderland" theme; the other insists on "Vampire Jamboree." Mathematics could have predicted it.
(PhysOrg.com) -- Physicists at the University of Sydney have brought silicon chips closer to performing all-optical computing and information processing that could overcome the speed limitations intrinsic ...
(PhysOrg.com) -- Time for some quick arithmetic: Is 3600 x 4.4 x 10^{4} x 32 larger or smaller than 3 x 10^{9}?
A researcher from the University of Bath has found a new approach to an old geometric problem of modelling the most efficient way of packing shapes to form a foam.
