Have you ever thought about an alternative number system where the numbers that are far apart are actually near? Let’s dive into the world of p-adics.

Topology is a branch of mathematics, that emerged very slowly from studies of geometry. However, in the late 1800s and early 1900s, it exploded into one of the largest fields of pure mathematics,...

For most people, the word “symmetry” evokes memories of making paper snowflakes or learning about isosceles triangles in their high school. So quite often When I tell peers that my research involves symmetry, the...

Richard Murchie investigates knot theory; how it is at the forefront of research and has great promise amongst many applications.
