“Ribbon concordance” will let mathematicians compare knots by linking them across four-dimensional space.
Two recent collaborations between mathematicians and DeepMind demonstrate the potential of machine learning to help researchers generate new mathematical conjectures.
To distinguish between fundamentally different objects, mathematicians turn to invariants that encode the objects’ essential features.
It took Lisa Piccirillo less than a week to answer a long-standing question about a strange knot discovered over half a century ago by the legendary John Conway.
The legendary mathematician, who died on April 11, was curious, colorful and one of the greatest problem-solvers of his generation.
Mathematicians have studied knots for centuries, but a new material is showing why some knots are better than others.
