A new Northwestern University study of mentor-protege relationships has found something that parents and children have known for a long time: the generation gap is real, and it matters. It not only affects communication but ...
(Phys.org) -- While it is relatively straightforward to build a box on the macroscale, it is much more challenging at smaller micro- and nanometer length scales. At those sizes, three-dimensional (3-D) structures are too ...
Mathematicians at UC Davis have come up with a new way to crinkle up the fabric of space-time -- at least in theory.
UC Davis mathematicians have helped biologists figure out why platelets, the cells that form blood clots, are the size and shape that they are. Because platelets are important both for healing wounds and in strokes and other ...
A mathematician from the University of Bristol has teamed up with a biologist from the University of Edinburgh to address a major problem in molecular biology.
If you have just seen a play that you privately think is drivel, will you keep silent when everyone around you demands an encore?
For centuries, some of the greatest names in math have tried to make sense of partition numbers, the basis for adding and counting. Many mathematicians added major pieces to the puzzle, but all of them fell ...
At a glance, a painting by Jackson Pollock (1912 - 1956) can look deceptively accidental: just a quick flick of color on a canvas.
(PhysOrg.com) -- New light has been shed on the 150-year-old math puzzle known as the Riemann hypothesis, say mathematical physicists at the University of Sydney.
(PhysOrg.com) -- Mathematicians are creating their own version of the periodic table that will provide a vast directory of all the possible shapes in the universe across three, four and five dimensions, linking ...
(PhysOrg.com) -- Origami, the ancient Japanese art of folding objects in simple, yet complicated ways, has in recent years been applied to various engineering challenges, such as how to fold up a solar array ...
The gross domestic product of the United States -- that oft-cited measure of economic health -- has been ticking upward for the last two years.
French-Russian mathematician Mikhail Gromov on Thursday won one of the world's top mathematics award, Norway's Abel Prize, for "his revolutionary contributions to geometry," the prize committee said.
"Instant runoff" voting – which San Franciscans will use next week to choose their new mayor, county sheriff and district attorney – requires voters to rank their three top choices in each race, ...
