Deciphering the principles of selforganizing systems is often at the heart of new ideas in biology, including neurobiology. A complex, selforganizing system contains a large
number of elements that have predictable, local interactions with each other, but these local interactions create global properties that cannot be predicted from even the most wellunderstood local events. This […]
The Riemann Hypothesis came to my attention again recently. More specifically I read a bit about the possibility that quantum mechanical measurements may provide a proof of a centuriesold hypothesis and one of mathematics’ most famous enigmas.
Within mathematics itself, without any reference to its physical meaning, the Riemann Hypothesis highlights the kind of […]
I don’t think it’s actually possible to answer the question in the title of this post, but I still believe it’s worth asking. We’ve thought of things ‘hidden under a microscope,’ or obscured by great distances, but in mathematics when something is hidden, it’s because we haven’t been able to imagine it yet. And when […]
