Hello, world! A new approach for physics in de Sitter space

For decades, physicists have been attempting to reconcile quantum mechanics, the physics of the very small, with gravity, the physics of the very large. While many academics are working on quantum gravity, they often use ...

After-school programs improve academic outcomes, study finds

A study of after-school programs in Connecticut led by UConn researchers suggests that students who participate for several years in programs sponsored by 21st Century Community Learning Centers have higher attendance in ...

Mirage software automates design of optical metamaterials

Sandia National Laboratories has created the first inverse-design software for optical metamaterials—meaning users start by describing the result they want, and the software fills in the steps to get there. The modern design ...

Web application helps urban planners design cities

Urban planners must take a myriad of different objectives into account when designing development programs. These can include optimizing a neighborhood's built density, preserving old monuments and buildings, using renewable ...

Embryonic gene regulation through mechanical forces

During embryonic development, genetic cascades control gene activity and cell differentiation. In a new publication of the journal PNAS, the team of Ulrich Technau of the Department of Molecular Evolution and Development ...
