the amplituhedron

The amplituhedron, a newly discovered mathematical object resembling a multifaceted jewel in higher dimensions. Encoded in its volume are the most basic features of reality that can be calculated - the probabilities of outcomes of particle interactions.

Physicists have discovered a jewel-like geometric object that dramatically simplifies calculations of particle interactions and challenges the notion that space and time are fundamental components of reality.

The revelation that particle interaction, the most basic events in nature, may be consequences of geometry significantly advances a decades-long effort to reformulate quantum field theory.

fourth dimension

In mathematics, four-dimensional space ("4D") is an abstract concept derived by generalizing the rules of three-dimensional space. It has been studied by mathematicians and philosophers for over two centuries, both for its own interest and for the insights it offered into mathematics and related fields.

Algebraically it is generated by applying the rules of vectors and coordinate geometry to a space with four dimensions. In particular a vector with four elements (a 4-tuple) can be used to represent a position in four-dimensional space. The space is a Euclidean space, so has a metric and norm, and so all directions are treated as the same: the additional dimension is indistinguishable from the other three.

In modern physics, space and time are unified in a four-dimensional Minkowski continuum called spacetime, whose metric treats the time dimension differently from the three spatial dimensions. Spacetime is thus not a Euclidean space.

Plane Stupid, a grassroots group aimed at preventing airport expansion, released this shocking video in 2009 in an effort to "confront people with the impact that short-haul flights have on the climate." However, some people, like Ed Gillespie, co-director of sustainable communications agency Futerra, wondered whether the shock value of the ad took away from the message. "The danger is that by pumping up the high octane drama of an ad, you increase the risk of viewers feeling manipulated," he wrote in a Guardian op-ed.

artist Yao Lu

That pastoral hillside? It’s more like a landfill.

The artist Yao Lu disguises pictures of China’s environmental problems in the tropes of traditional Chinese art.
