By reimagining the kinks and folds of origami as atoms in a lattice, researchers are uncovering strange behavior hiding in simple structures.

To efficiently analyze a firehose of data, scientists first have to break big numbers into bits.

Simple math can help scheming politicians manipulate district maps and cruise to victory. But it can also help identify and fix the problem.

Voevodsky’s friends remember him as constitutionally unable to compromise on the truth — a quality that led him to produce some of the most important mathematics of the 20th century.
