By exploiting randomness, three mathematicians have proved an elegant law that underlies the chaotic motion of turbulent systems.

As astronomers get better at finding the comets and asteroids of other stars, they’ll learn more about the universe and our place in it.

A photograph of the infant cosmos reveals the precise amounts of dark matter and dark energy in the universe, leaving precious little room for argument.

A curious physicist has discovered an unexpected link between theoretical block collisions and a famed quantum search algorithm.

While mathematics gives us elegant explanations for many physical phenomena, real-world situations often require us to scramble through dense numerical thickets.

Summer sea ice could vanish later this decade, with disastrous consequences. It all depends on the physics of ice.

The noted mathematician and author Steven Strogatz explains why he wanted to share intimate conversations with leading researchers from diverse fields in his new podcast.

A startling experimental discovery about how fluids behave started a wave of important mathematical proofs.
