By showing that tiny particles injected into a liquid crystal medium adhere to existing mathematical theorems, physicists at the University of Colorado Boulder have opened the door for the creation of a host of new materials with properties that do not exist in nature. The findings show that researchers can create a "recipe book" to build new materials of sorts using topology, a major mathematical field that describes the properties that do not change when an object is stretched, bent or...

Liquid Crystal Research May Lead To Advancement Of Future Applications

University of Massachusetts at Amherst Contributing geometric and topological analyses of micro-materials, University of Massachusetts Amherst mathematician Robert Kusner aided experimental physicists at the University of Colorado (UC) by successfully explaining the observed "beautiful and complex patterns revealed" in three-dimensional liquid crystal experiments. The work is expected to lead to creation of new materials that can be actively controlled. Kusner is a geometer, an expert...

NEW YORK, Nov. 20, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- A new germ-killing spray product is being introduced at airports across the country for the nearly 25 million Americans who vacation during Thanksgiving weekend, the busiest travel period of the year. With airlines booked to capacity, planes become a "germaphobic" nightmare with planes packed full of families - and germs.

Mathematicians at the Institute for Advanced Study in New Jersey "bridged" topology and fractals and made a discovery that could lead to a new way of describing extremely complicated shapes such as the configuration of the tiniest defects in a metal or even the froth of a breaking wave. Topology is a powerful branch of mathematics that looks at qualitative geometric properties such as the number of holes a geometric shape contains, while fractals are extremely complicated geometric shapes...

A research team headed by Professor David Leigh of the University of Edinburgh (UK) and Academy Professor Kari Rissanen of the University of Jyväskylä (Finland) have made the most complex molecular knot to date, as reported in Nature Chemistry (DOI:10.1038/NCHEM.1193, published online Nov. 6 2011). Knots can be found in DNA, proteins and even in the molecules that make up man-made plastics, where they often play an important role in the substance's properties...

'Electron superhighway' could pave way for creation of elusive quantum-particle pairs Rice University physicists have created a tiny "electron superhighway" that could one day be useful for building a quantum computer, a new type of computer that will use quantum particles in place of the digital transistors found in today's microchips. In a recent paper in Physical Review Letters, Rice physicists Rui-Rui Du and Ivan Knez describe a new method for making a tiny device called a "quantum...

Topology

Topology was a peer-reviewed math journal covering topology and geometry. It ran from 1962 to 2009 and was published by Elsevier. A pricing policy dispute between editorial staff and Elsevier ended on August 10, 2006, with the entire staff handing in their resignation, with effect from December 31, 2006. Two more issues were published in 2007 as papers had already been accepted before the editors resigned. The former editors of the journal instructed Elsevier in January 2007 to remove...

Space -- The definition of space in physics is contentious. Various concepts used to try to define space have included: -- the structure defined by the set of "spatial relationships" between objects -- a manifold defined by a coordinate system where an object can be located. -- the entity that stops all objects in the universe from touching one another In classical physics, space is a three-dimensional Euclidean space where any position can be described using three...
