How Physics Gifted Math With a New Geometry
3rd August 2020 - Listed in:
In the early 1800s, William Rowan Hamilton discovered a new kind of geometric space with nearly magical properties. It encoded motion and mathematics into a single, glinting geometric object. This phenomenon birthed a field called symplectic geometry. Over the last...
As the world waits eagerly for a Covid-19 vaccine, several candidates are starting to be put through their paces in clinical trials. More than 100 vaccine candidates are being developed by teams around the world, with more than 20 now...
Electronic textiles that communicate, sense, or power other devices promise a new era of smart wearable technology. But current e-textiles rely heavily on metals such as gold, silver, and copper, making disposal or recycling difficult. Using nanomaterials such as carbon...
Balloon shaping isn’t just for kids anymore. A team of researchers from the Harvard John A. Paulson School of Engineering and Applied Sciences (SEAS) has designed materials that can control and mold a balloon into pre-programmed shapes. The system uses...
Researchers from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign have improved the technique of frontal polymerization, where a small amount of heat triggers a moving reaction wave that produces a polymeric material. Their new method allows the creation of a wider...
