Highlights from Francis Su’s webinar “The Integration of Faith and the Academic Calling.”
[Karen Uhlenbeck’s] work laid the foundation for a whole new branch of mathematics, geometric analysis, and she also provided mathematical physicists critical tools for working with the Yang-Mills equations which are central to the Standard Model of particle physics.
Topology is a standard topic in mathematics; topiary less so. That’s why I thought it was pretty cool to read about a mathematician-designed maze in celebration of the Abel Prize.
Truly universal truths can be more elusive than they seem.
Mersenne primes are named for 17th century French scholar Marin Mersenne who was also an ordained priest.
