What's up in
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.
The two physicists who introduced Peccei-Quinn symmetry came up with their idea on and around Stanford University’s campus 40 years ago.
