Symplectic geometry is a relatively new field with implications for much of modern mathematics. Here’s what it’s all about.

While locked down due to COVID-19, Joshua Greene and Andrew Lobb figured out how to prove a version of the “rectangular peg problem.”

To distinguish between fundamentally different objects, mathematicians turn to invariants that encode the objects’ essential features.

It took Lisa Piccirillo less than a week to answer a long-standing question about a strange knot discovered over half a century ago by the legendary John Conway.
