Process Fractal vs Geometry Fractals

Let proportion be found not only in numbers, but also in sounds, weights, times and positions, and whatever force there is.Leonardo Da Vinci The Mandelbrot set, seen here in an image generated by NOVA, epitomizes the fractal. Photo credit: © … Continue reading

The Mathematikoi had Synesthesia?

Pythagoreanism is a term used for the esoteric and metaphysical beliefs held by Pythagoras and his followers, the Pythagoreans, who were much influenced by mathematics and probably a main inspirational source for Plato and platonism. Later resurgence of ideas similar … Continue reading

Images or Numbers By Themself

“Mathematicians have tried in vain to this day to discover some order in the sequence of prime numbers, and we have reason to believe that it is a mystery into which the mind will never penetrate” (cited by Ivars Peterson … Continue reading

The Geometrics Behind the Supernova and it’s History

It is not always easy for people to see what lies behind the wonderful beauty of images that we take from the satellite measures of space, and it’s dynamical events illustrated in Cassiopeia A. There before you is this majestic … Continue reading

Visual Abstraction to Equations

Sylvester’s models lay hidden away for a long time, but recently the Mathematical Institute received a donation to rescue some of them. Four of these were carefully restored by Catherine Kimber of the Ashmolean Museum and now sit in an … Continue reading

Reaching for the Stars

Mars in 6 weeks? And back in a total of four months? That’s the prediction of a design team working on antimatter rocket concepts at Pennsylvania State University. But first, you have to get the stuff – and store it. … Continue reading

Ring World

Impact armor, a flexible form of clothing that hardens instantly into a rigid form stronger than steel when rapidly deformed (for example, by the impact of a projectile such as a bullet) – a technology which is quickly approaching reality; … Continue reading
