Seeing is believing In my field of graph theory, or network science as it is sometimes called, we study dots and lines, and the patterns formed by the dots joining up with lines. The dots are referred to as nodes and the lines are edges. Networks are combinatorial patterns, analyzed using discrete mathematics. In network science, we… Read More Visualizing networks

More than numbers Numbers are one way we measure the world. From the negative temperatures on a thermometer, to our bank account balances precise to the nearest cent, or to the number of followers we have on Twitter, we use numbers routinely in our everyday lives. Our early education reflects the importance of numbers, and… Read More Our networked world

A key insight of general relativity is the view of the universe as a four-dimensional geometric space. Gravitation and other forces within physics are explained as properties of the geometry. Analogously, string theory includes many dimensions, as many as ten or more, in an effort to explain all the forces of the universe. Given the geometry… Read More The geometry of social networks

When visiting the Curie Museum in Paris this May, I became aware that much of Marie Curie’s later work was devoted to the medical uses of radiation. Here was one of the most brilliant scientists of all time, two-time nobel prize winner, with a clear view towards the applications of her theoretical work. While I had… Read More Mind and action
