### AI Reveals New Possibilities in Matrix Multiplication

Inspired by the results of a game-playing neural network, mathematicians have been making unexpected advances on an age-old math problem.

### Matrix Multiplication Inches Closer to Mythic Goal

A recent paper set the fastest record for multiplying two matrices. But it also marks the end of the line for a method researchers have relied on for decades to make improvements.

### New Algorithm Breaks Speed Limit for Solving Linear Equations

By harnessing randomness, a new algorithm achieves a fundamentally novel — and faster — way of performing one of the most basic computations in math and computer science.

### Graced With Knowledge, Mathematicians Seek to Understand

A landmark proof in computer science has also solved an important problem called the Connes embedding conjecture. Mathematicians are working to understand it.

### A New Path to Equal-Angle Lines

Equiangular lines are an elemental part of geometry. Mathematicians have discovered a tighter limit on the number of such lines that exist in every dimension.
