Vijay Balasubramanian investigates whether the fabric of the universe might be built from information, and what it means that physicists can even ask such a question.

A surprising new solution to Leonhard Euler’s famous “36 officers puzzle” offers a novel way of encoding quantum information.

Investigations of the simplest possible clocks have revealed their fundamental limitations — as well as insights into the nature of time itself.

Even as mathematicians and computer scientists proved big results in computational complexity, number theory and geometry, computers proved themselves increasingly indispensable in mathematics.

In a landmark series of calculations, physicists have proved that black holes can shed information.

Can we test speculations about how quantum physics affects black holes and the Big Bang?

The laws of physics imply that the passage of time is an illusion. To avoid this conclusion, we might have to rethink the reality of infinitely precise numbers.

Computer scientists established a new boundary on computationally verifiable knowledge. In doing so, they solved major open problems in quantum mechanics and pure mathematics.

A proposal for building wormhole-connected black holes offers a way to probe the paradoxes of quantum information.
