Mathematicians used “magic functions” to prove that two highly symmetric lattices solve a myriad of problems in eight- and 24-dimensional space.
In a world seemingly filled with chaos, physicists have discovered new forms of synchronization and are learning how to predict and control them.
Decades after physicists happened upon a stunning mathematical coincidence, researchers are getting close to understanding the link between two seemingly unrelated geometric universes.
An eminent mathematician reveals that his advances in the study of millennia-old mathematical questions owe to concepts derived from physics.
A type of symmetry so unusual that it was called a “pariah” turns out to have deep connections to number theory.
