Patterns are math we love to look at

Why do humans love to look at patterns? I can only guess, but I've written a whole book about new mathematical ways to make them. In Creating Symmetry, The Artful Mathematics of Wallpaper Patterns, I include a comprehensive ...

New measurement of electron–quark scattering

From matching wings on butterflies to the repeating six-point pattern of snowflakes, symmetries echo through nature, even down to the smallest building blocks of matter. Since the discovery of quarks, the building blocks ...

Symmetry breaking during flapping generates lift

(Phys.org)—A small, translucent sea slug called Clione antarctica swims through the cold waters near the polar regions by flapping its wings. At the same time, tiny cilia that circle the sea slug's body in three bands may ...

Graduate's Belle experiment thesis published in Physical Review

Working together with other UH Manoa colleagues on the Belle experiment at the KEKB factory in Tsukuba, Japan, postdoctoral researcher Himansu Sahoo first reported the first observation of a new type of rare "penguin decay" ...

Signs of dark matter may point to mirror matter candidate

(PhysOrg.com) -- Dark matter, which contains the "missing mass" that's needed to explain why galaxies stay together, could take any number of forms. The main possible candidates include MACHOS and WIMPS, but there is no shortage ...
