Researchers from the Complutense University of Madrid (UCM, Spain) have mathematically shown that particles charged in a magnetic field can escape into infinity without ever stopping. One of the conditions is that the field is generated by current loops situated on the same plane. At the moment this is a theoretical mathematical study, but two researchers from UCM have recently proved that, in certain conditions, magnetic fields can send particles to infinity, according to the study...

Geodesic -- In mathematics and specifically in differential geometry, a geodesic is a path that furnishes shortest paths between any points on it that are close enough together. The most familiar examples are the straight lines in Euclidean geometry. In more general spaces the geodesics can be more complicated, but one often still thinks of them as "straight" in a sense. On a sphere, for instance, the geodesics are the great circles. The shortest path from point A to point B on a...
