Young Mathematicians from Brine Leas school in Nantwich are celebrating after winning the University of Keele Senior Maths Team Challenge. The clever calculators scooped the Keele Shield for their successful performance. Chris Barker, BL6 head of Mathematics, said his team excelled in the team ...
Mathematicians have devised a way of calculating the size of a tsunami and its destructive force well in advance of it making landfall by measuring fast-moving underwater sound waves, opening up the possibility of a real-time early warning system. The sound waves, known as acoustic gravity waves ...

Very often, Mathematicians are interested in things that lay people do not find interesting at all. The nature of problems are obscure and often unrelated to our daily lives. The methods of solving them are even more inaccessible. It's no wonder then that there are far fewer top Mathematicians writing books for ...
Edge-reinforced random walks produce a co-evolution of the network with the dynamics of the walkers. At time t the walker is on the red node and has already visited the grey nodes, while the shaded nodes are still unexplored. The widths of edges are proportional to their weights. At time t + 1 the walker ...
After repeated failures, Mathematicians began to tackle this problem more gradually. Instead of twin primes with a gap of two, they began proving different versions of the conjecture. In these versions, the prime pairs had larger gaps between them. Yitang Zhang, a professor in a fairly obscure university in ...
The first few primes are 2, 3, 5, 7 and 11. The rest, like 4 for instance, are not prime: 4 can be broken down to 2 times 2, as well as 4 times 1. But when Mathematicians and computer scientists talk about large prime numbers -- hundreds or thousands of digits long -- it's often in the context of encryption: big ...

Beginning in 1936, the International Congress of Mathematicians awarded two Fields Medals every 4 years to recognize outstanding mathematical promise and achievement. In 1966, the organization (now run by the International Mathematics Union) bumped it up to four medals every 4 years and ...
He received his doctorate at Princeton University under the mentorship of Bill Thurston, one of the most important Mathematicians of the last half-century. He is now a tenured professor at Brown University whose most important work has taken place in the field of dynamics, which studies the long-run ...
The DASPO-group for data analysis and survival in personalized sarcoma at the Mathematical Institute has developed an app that provides personalised predictions for patients suffering from soft tissue sarcomas. Due to the aggressive nature of such tumors, the prognosis for such patients is poor, even ...
The Fields Medal, whose origins date back to the 1930s, will be issued again this year in August to up to four of the world's most accomplished Mathematicians under the age of 40. In a commentary for Nature, Michael Barany, a Society of Fellows post-doctoral fellow in history at Dartmouth, proposes that ...
A new laboratory is being set up with France's National Center for scientific research to bring together some of the world's best Mathematicians. The pioneering venture will integrate leading researchers and students from both institutions to significantly advance collaboration in mathematics between ...
In long-overlooked archives, I've found details of turning points in the medal's past that, in my view, hold lessons for those deliberating whom to recognize in August at the 2018 International Congress of Mathematicians in Rio de Janeiro in Brazil, and beyond. Since the late 1960s, the Fields Medal has ...
He likes problems he can read about today and start solving tomorrow -- simple problems, fun problems, problems that have the aspect of a carnival game: Step right up and see what you can do with this one! It's an unusual disposition among research Mathematicians. Schwartz embraces it completely.
One of the four brilliant Mathematicians who were awarded Fields medals at the 2014 ICM was Maryam Mirzakhani, who was born and educated in Iran, and completed a PhD in mathematics at Harvard University. Behind that brief outline, there was an exceptional person with an astonishing history.
While physicists consider the equations to be as reliable as a hammer, Mathematicians eye them warily. To a mathematician, it means little that the equations appear to work. They want proof that the equations are unfailing: that no matter the fluid, and no matter how far into the future you forecast its flow, the ...
He is now eligible for a $3,000 award. When asked about Mathematicians' fascination with such mammoth numbers, Caldwell said: "They are exciting to those of us who are interested in them. It's like asking why do you climb a mountain." He compares prime numbers to diamonds, with small ones finding ...
She said: "I was very proud of the support and encouragement the children gave each other throughout the competition, with some of our more reluctant Mathematicians answering the 1000 questions set. "The pupils were delighted to win and have asked me to enter them into the national version after ...

Invited professor of RUDN University Durvudkhan Suragan and a team of colleagues have obtained and established new types of functional inequalities. Hardy's inequalities are an important type of problem solving in mathematical physics. The results of the study were published in Advances in ...

In response, Sergeyev told RetractionWatch that the decision by the journal to disown his paper was part of a decade-long "witch-hunt campaign" by rival Mathematicians against his work. His critics, however, were unrepentant. Alexander Gutman from Novosibirsk University in Russia said Sergeyev's work ...
In the 1980s, two European Mathematicians posed a baffling conjecture. The problem begins with one of algebra's most basic premises, adding two positive whole numbers to equal a third one: a + b = c. From there, though, everything goes a bit sideways. The ABC conjecture questions the nature of ...
In an effort to untangle the mathematics, Mathematicians have held workshops and produced a summary paper, totalling a meagre 400 pages. But while some have been converted to IUT, others have remained sceptical of the proof. "A small number of those close to Mochizuki claim to understand the proof ...
The core team involves distinguished Mathematicians such as Adrian Ocneanu, a visiting professor this year at Harvard, Vaughan Jones, and Alina Vdovina. As important are rising stars who have come to Harvard from around the world, including Jinsong Wu from the Harbin Institute of technology and ...

Head of mathematics at King's Ely Senior, Audrienne Bezzina, said: "I would like to say a huge well done to all of our Mathematicians. Roughly only the top 6% of students achieve a Gold certificate, the next 13% Silver and the next 21% Bronze. From the original entrants, only one in 400 are invited to take ...

You could forgive Mathematicians for being drawn to the monster group, an algebraic object so enormous and mysterious that it took them nearly a decade to prove it exists. Now, 30 years later, string theorists--physicists studying how all fundamental forces and particles might be explained by tiny strings ...
Two professors have done the unthinkable! They have solved the 300-year-old maths problem, which had till now puzzled Mathematicians for centuries. Christopher Hacon and James McKernan were awarded the Breakthrough Prize in Mathematics at NASA Ames Research Center on December 3, 2017 ...
MINSK, 7 December (BelTA) - The 19th national tournament of young Mathematicians has opened in Minsk, BelTA learned from the press center of the ... The tournament of young Mathematicians is a team competition in which students solve problems, present the results, defend their points of view in a ...
mathematical proofs are elaborate theoretical arguments that often say little about actual numbers and calculations -- the concrete values non-Mathematicians think of as "solving a math problem." Occasionally, though, theoretical proofs lead to explicit results. This was the case with an exciting sequence of ...
A Burnley school is in with a shot of making it to the National Young Mathematicians' Awards Grand Finals after beating away stiff competition from other ... A team of Mathematicians from Wellfield Methodist and Anglican Church School claimed top spot after tackling a series of mathematical problems to pip ...
