Combining computational geometry, artificial intelligence, geo and ultrasound techniques, among others, scientists from the Center for Research and Advanced Studies (CINVESTAV) created a device to help people ...
(Phys.org) —A team of researchers, one from the U.S. and the others from Hungary, has found that a condition they've dubbed doubly transient chaos can emerge from a system due to dissipation. In their paper ...
Geometrical phases occur in many places in nature. One of the simplest examples is the Foucault pendulum: a tall pendulum free to swing in any vertical plane. Due to the earth rotation, the actual plane of ...
(Phys.org) —A sensor for capturing the world in three dimensions is coming to the iPad. A Kickstarter project that launched on Tuesday seeks funds for its Structure Sensor, which is a portable sensor that ...
For many years, studies have shown that American students score significantly lower than students worldwide in mathematics achievement, ranking 25th among 34 countries. Now, researchers from the University of Missouri have ...
Permanently shadowed craters on the moon or Mercury are one of the most exciting locations to search for water. Because the walls of these craters protect certain spots inside from the rays of the sun, it's ...
(Phys.org) —A University of Warwick scientist has conceived a new method to improve the measurement of the surfaces of components essential for use in high-precision and nanotechnology applications.
(Phys.org) —A California-based company has a new kind of wheel for skateboards that delivers a novel shape and claims a special ride experience. This is the Shark Wheel, not circular, not square, but something ...
Putting a wind turbine on your suburban home may leave you disappointed but there is a large untapped wind energy potential in UK cities, say scientists. A new study has mapped the wind energy potential of ...
Researchers at Aalto University have developed a purely geometric surface structure that is able to stop and control the spreading of liquids on different types of surfaces. The structure has an undercut ...
(Phys.org) —Intel was not going to let an event like the Game Developers Conference from March 25 to March 29 in San Francisco, described on the conference site as the world's largest professionals-only ...
Belgian-born Pierre Deligne has won this year's $1-million Abel Prize in mathematics for his contributions to algebraic geometry and their "transformative impact on number theory, representation theory and ...
(Phys.org) —The ALMA telescope installation begins delivering images of fresh planets, young stars, and distant galaxies.
Fermat's Last Theorem—the idea that a certain simple equation had no solutions— went unsolved for nearly 350 years until Oxford mathematician Andrew Wiles created a proof in 1995. Now, Case Western Reserve University's ...
