The year started with this joint work by mathematicians and biologists. Even after Dr. Tao’s latest insights, the problem remains unfinished, and could still take years to solve. Loh points out that the math he’s using has been known for centuries, but his descriptive approach is fresh, and may prove preferable for new generations of students learning quadratic equations. Explore a wide range of recent research in mathematics. Professor Po-Shen Loh of Carnegie Mellon University made waves this year, popularizing an alternative way of approaching quadratic equations.Dr. Applied Mathematics. 6 Kirigami Gets Mathematized.
