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 ...
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 ...
The company is the brainchild of a group of University of Cambridge Mathematicians and former British military intelligence staff. Darktrace uses artificial intelligence to monitor the routine patterns of behavior within a network. After those have been established--generally within five to seven days--Darktrace ...

Hacon says he hopes this award encourages young Mathematicians, which is the point of the Breakthrough Prize. Started by executives from ...
Two Mathematicians have each earned the (massive but countable) sum of $3 million for a proof that could one day help scientists understand extra dimensions. Christopher Hacon, a mathematician at the University of Utah, and James McKernan, a physicist at the University of California at San Diego, won ...
Mathematicians James McKernan, at the University of California, San Diego, and Christopher Hacon, at the University of Utah in Salt Lake City, shared the $3-million Mathematics prize for work in algebraic geometry, which expresses the solutions of certain equations as higher-dimensional geometric ...
