VietNamNet Bridge - mathematics university graduates complain it is difficult for them to find jobs, while Mathematicians say the national economy is still not developed enough to use many workers with mathematical knowledge and skills.
A group of academics from Canada used boozers listed on the Pubs Galore website and then mapped the coordinates before working out the shortest route which includes them all.

Mathematicians have combined to plot a meticulously-planned route taking in almost 25,000 UK pubs. And aside from the toll the marathon would take on your liver, it would also cost you three years of your life to complete it.
"They're little Mathematicians and engineers, and they engineered these games. I think that's what they loved most about all of this.
Growing up in Hampton, Virginia, author Margot Shetterly took for granted that scientists and Mathematicians would as often as not be female and nonwhite.

In a new study, an international team of engineers, Mathematicians and doctors develop a new breast cancer detection method to identify cancerous cells in breast cancer histopathology images.
Rather than giving up and just buying a beanbag, at this point, Mathematicians want to know: what's the largest sofa you could possible fit around a 90 degree corner, regardless of shape, without it bending?
physics, of course, meant math, and math meant Mathematicians. And since the middle of the last decade, Mathematicians had meant women. Langley's first female computing pool, started in 1935, had caused an uproar among the men of the laboratory.
It's a pub crawl that could last a lifetime but, thanks to the dedicated work of an international team of Mathematicians who have plotted the shortest possible route to visit 25,000 boozers across the country, roaming ale drinkers of the UK now have a ...
A team of researchers led by University of Pennsylvania mathematical physicists Tony Pantev and Ron Donagi recently received a $10 million Simons Collaboration Grant to prove the Homological Mirror Symmetry Conjecture, one of mathematics' ...

However, the work of Alan Turing wouldn't have been possible without the support and prior work of Polish Mathematicians, it is said. "Polish Mathematicians had worked out how to read Enigma messages and had shared this information with the British ...

"Mathematicians observed that different problems from varied fields often have related features and properties. This fact was used for an effective unifying approach towards such problems, the unification being obtained by the omission of unessential ...
... students, universities need to give students the theoretical grounding they need to access the subject and support them to identify with it - to want to learn it, to become the Mathematicians of the future, to enjoy and critique mathematics and ...
But what is less well known is the groundwork laid out by Mathematicians in Poland. Well on Saturday they have been honoured at the Polish Embassy in London, from where Kasia Madera reports.
While Ms. Lovelace lived long before the advent of computers as we know them today, she was a talented and well read mathematician who worked with Charles Babbage in the 19th century to create the analytical engine, commonly considered the precursor ...
Mathematicians have tried millions of numbers and they've never found a single one that didn't end up at 1 eventually.
This break with the commutativity convention earned Hamilton the title "liberator of algebra," Maynooth University mathematician Fiacre O'Cairbre explains. O'Cairbre, who leads an annual walk retracing Hamilton's path along the canal, credits his ...
Inevitably, there are thoughts with which some readers will disagree. He makes it clear that his primary audience is not Mathematicians, so perhaps it is unfair for me to quibble with his suggestion that Mathematicians "recoil from the horror" of the ...
Mathematician and academic Jo Boaler points out that mathematics is the only subject where students and Mathematicians give very different answers to this question. Mathematicians view the subject as an exciting, creative endeavour in which problem ...
Three of the play's four characters - Catherine, Hal and Robert - are all Mathematicians in their own right. According to Wintersteen, the cast has spent a great deal of time throughout the rehearsal process discussing what being a mathematician really ...
Mathematicians say new research could be a game-changer in predicting the movements of catastrophic bushfires. Number-crunching has long been used to understand how fire behaves, but until recently the formulas have lacked the flexibility to predict ...

Most of the Mathematicians who have won a Nobel prize can be found among financial Economists -- yet their equations and models would probably not have impressed Alfred Nobel.
It is this type of problem that Mathematicians have long investigated with the so-called 'cake-cutting problem.' Cake cutting is based around a scenario in which a varying amount of siblings or friends divide up a cake with multiple toppings, where ...
On this day in 1843, William Rowan Hamilton, one of the world's most outstanding Mathematicians ever, created the quaternions in a flash of inspiration while walking along the banks of the Royal Canal in Dublin.
The conjecture concerns what are called Calabi-Yau spaces, tiny, six-dimensional curved spaces whose properties were originally hypothesized in 1957 by Eugenio Calabi, a now-retired Penn mathematician, and proven 21 years later by Shing-Tung Yau.
In 1958, in my junior year at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Richard Schoenwald - whose tutorial on Sigmund Freud I was taking - encouraged me to meet the anti-Freud, Warren McCulloch.

In fact, one of the world's top Mathematicians believes that an algorithm that makes use of an ancient Greek device called the "sieve of Eratosthenes" could be the key to discovering all-new, inconceivably large prime numbers, reports science Alert.
In case you missed it, Mathematicians are pretty obsessed with prime numbers - the limitless 'atoms' of the mathematical world that are only divisible by themselves and one.
From computing pioneer and code breaker Alan Turing to former global surveillance whistle-blower Edward Snowden, mathematics has been essential to the development of computing and online security.
He's best known for his plays on the field, but Urschel is also pursuing a doctorate in Mathematics. Urschel shared his expertise Monday with senior statistics students at Notre Dame Prep in Towson.
