During the early 1960s space race, female African-American Mathematicians were recruited as "human computers" to help launch John Glenn into orbit.
"The math challenge helps young Mathematicians approach real-life problems using their analytical thinking skills. So many problems in the classroom are viewed as right or wrong.
"That means thinking about girls as scientists and Mathematicians, and thinking about brown and black young people as students, scientists, Mathematicians, thinkers and college students," Hess said. The data show there are some improvements in social ...
"Gerry was always very much interested in the history of Mathematics, somewhat unusual among real Mathematicians, and he taught the rather rare history of mathematics courses in the department before he retired," said Robert Gunning, a Princeton ...
But Mathematicians may soon enter the fray. A workshop being held this summer at Tufts University on the "geometry of Redistricting" will, among other things, train Mathematicians to serve as expert witnesses in gerrymandering cases. The workshop has ...
She's also the founder of a working group, the Metric geometry and Gerrymandering Group, which is planning to train Mathematicians around the country to act as expert witnesses in gerrymandering cases. "Geometers like me, we study this," she says.
R.I. scanners to observe the brains of 15 Mathematicians while they were thinking about various equations. The subjects were shown 60 mathematical formulas two weeks before they were scanned and during and after the scan.
In the movie "Hidden Figures," Janelle Monae, Taraji P. Henson and Octavia Spencer play, respectively, Mary Jackson, Katherine Johnson and Dorothy Vaughan, three Mathematicians whose work was integral to NASA's early missions. (Twentieth Century ...
Pardon established himself as an accomplished mathematician from an early age. During his senior year at Princeton - where he primarily took graduate-level math courses after his sophomore year - he wrote a paper that presented a solution to a ...
The aircraft is the Handley Page Gugnunc and when it was built in 1929, the aviation industry was the biggest employer of Mathematicians. The Mathematics-based aerodynamic research used to design it led to a shift in opinion regarding the safety of ...

Mathematicians aren't sure. In particular, they don't know the minimum size a graph can be before we are guaranteed a subset of a given size (for all possible sizes).
BUDDING Mathematicians engaged their brains in Langley recently as they geared up to take part in national challenges. Almost 30 youngsters from secondary schools in Slough and Langley, as well as some from Reading and London, attended workshops ...
Three engineers and three Mathematicians are on a train going to a conference. The Mathematicians each bought a ticket.
Conversely, as the number theorist Enrico Bombieri wrote in his description of the problem, "the failure of the Riemann hypothesis would create havoc in the distribution of prime numbers.
For at least 70 years, Mathematicians have been trying to answer a question like that one. The sets of lines they're interested in share a basic feature: Any two lines from the set intersect to form the same angle.
The game, originally proposed by two RAND Mathematicians and later formalized by the Princeton mathematician Albert W. Tucker, goes something like this: two criminals rob a bank and are arrested, imprisoned, and placed into solitary confinement.
With badass women Mathematicians in a pastel-colored Floridian setting, the movie Gifted has a lot going for it. But the best part of Gifted isn't Chris Evans as Frank Adler, staving off dad bod and growing out his scruff.
(Photo: 3Blue1Brown/YouTube). A trio of Mathematicians have set the academic world abuzz with a recent paper that offers a new approach to what has been called "the greatest unsolved problem in Mathematics," proving the so-called Riemann hypothesis.
Mathematical visualization techniques led the author to create this virtual scene, showing shapes from the realm of mathematics bursting into the physical world.
When it comes to the fabled Riemann zeta function, the world's best Mathematicians have suffered 160 years of dead-end after dead-end.
Written not from a post-crisis perspective, rehashing tales of post-crisis fallout - but from a preventative point of view - this book traces the development of financial derivatives from bonds to credit default swaps, and shows how mathematical ...
When it comes to the fabled Riemann zeta function, the world's best Mathematicians have suffered 160 years of dead-end after dead-end.
As Mathematicians have attacked the hypothesis from every angle, the problem has also migrated to physics. Since the 1940s, intriguing hints have arisen of a connection between the zeros of the zeta function and quantum mechanics.
The three hidden figures are far and away the best Mathematicians working to get a man into space, and it isn't long before they have each knocked a chalkboard problem clear out of the park as an audience of white Mathematicians looks on, shocked to ...

It's a problem that the world's most experienced Mathematicians have spent decades trying to solve, and the solution had eluded them at every turn - the infamous Gaussian correlation inequality (GCI).
In doing so, Mathematicians have made possible the "basic property" of human language - the ability to digitally build an infinite amount of structured expressions, which can be interpreted into a thought and externalized.
Not surprisingly, the need for trained Mathematicians has gone up over the years, across the world. Expertise in Mathematics, statistics and computing is attractive to banks, insurance companies and other organisations that analyse large volumes of data.
