curiosamathematica:
In dynamical systems, a bifurcation occurs when a small change made to the parameter values of a system causes a sudden qualitative or topological change in its behaviour. The name “bifurcation” was first introduced by Henri Poincaré in 1885 in the first paper in mathematics showing such a behavior.Even in simple systems such as the logistic map, bifurcations can arise and introduce chaos. A rough description of chaos is that chaotic systems exhibit a great sensitivity

trigonometry-is-my-bitch:
Swing-hinged dissection, or simply Hinged dissection, is the geometric dissection in which all of the pieces are connected into a chain by hinged points, such that the rearrangement from one figure to another can be carried out by swinging the chain continuously, without severing any of the connections.Hinged dissections were popularised by author of mathematical puzzles, Henry Dudeney. He introduced the famous hinged dissection of a square into a triangle in his

classymathematics:
Hi guys, I’ve had this idea recently and I definitely need your help. If you start with a line and at both ends add lines such that they are perpendicular to the first one (like on the second picture) and then repeat this process infintely, you get a geometrical figure that seems rather random (not sure if it can be considered as a fractal though). The first 3 images show the 3 first steps ; the fourth one is the result after 8 iterations,

Stupiti che 1 non sia primo? Scopriamo insieme perché è "solo" l'unità!Abbiamo già visto come, partendo dai numeri primi, si possa sviluppare un discorso più o meno approfondito sulle fondamenta matematiche. Altrettanto fondamentale, però, si rivela provare a rispondere alla domanda su quale sia il numero primo più piccolo. E', infatti, abbastanza noto come il numero 1 sia stato ora inserito ora escluso dalla lista dei numeri primi, ottenendo in alcuni casi lo status di più piccolo tra […]

Direi che oggi pomeriggio è stato un bel respirare, al Palazzo Brera. Cristina Lazzeroni dell'Università di Birmingham è venuta alle 18 (come avevo scritto nel post precedente) per raccontare del bosone di Higgs, del modello standard e di materia e antimateria. E' una sperimentale presso l'esperimento LHCb al CERN, l'esperimento dedicato proprio alla ricerca su uno dei grandi misteri dell'universo: perché in esso c'è un eccesso di materia (e d'altra parte se non fosse così, non ci sarebbe […]
