Rock climber takes on surfer's theory
The "exceptionally simple theory of everything," proposed by a surfing physicist in 2007, does not hold water, says Emory mathematician Skip Garibaldi. Garibaldi, a rock climber in his spare time, did the math to disprove the theory, which involves a mysterious structure known as E8. The resulting paper, co-authored by physicist Jacques Distler of the University of Texas, will appear in an upcoming issue of Communications in Mathematical Physics.
Her math adds up to a brilliant career
R. Parimala has received one of the highest global honors in her field: Selection as a plenary speaker for the International Congress of Mathematicians. The Asa Griggs Candler Professor of Math plans to talk about the arithmetic of two-dimensional fields at ICM 2010, set for Aug. 19-27, 2010, in Hyderabad, India.
Bug splatter study is data driven
The next time you take a road trip, think before you clean the bug splatter off your car. Those insect remains may actually be more interesting than your vacation photos. "It turns out that your car is a sampling device for understanding the biodiversity of all the places you've been," says James Taylor, a computational biologist at Emory.
Math's in your cards, so deal with it
A 17th-century French gambler helped spark the modern theory of probability, says Ron Gould, author of the newly published "Mathematics in Games, Sports and Gambling – The Games People Play."
Genome's 'dark matter'
James Taylor's office in the Rollins Research Center is clean and minimalist, with no papers cluttering his desk or shelves. "My work is almost completely computerized, and computers are really a general-purpose instrument," says Taylor an assistant professor whose work spans two departments: biology and math and computer science.
Dr. Alessandro Veneziani featured in the Italian science newspaper TuttoScienze
Page one of the article can be found here. Page two of the article can be found here. A translated version of the full article is published on this website.
Finding his focus: Gymnast turned mathematician is driven by precision.
Dr. Jim Nagy is a leader in the field of using math and scientific computation to sharpen blurry images, for everything from medical to security applications. But right after high school, he had only a fuzzy picture of his future.
Teaching Girls Math's Magic
In the May 5th, 2008 issue of the Emory Report, an article written by Carol Clark featured a story on graduate students Julianne Chung and Audrey Malagon and their math enrichment program for Atlanta high school girls.
