If you are aware of elementary facts of geometry, then you might know that the area of a circle with radius $ R$ is $ \pi R^2$ . The radius is actually the measure(length) of a line joining the center of circle and any point on the circumference of the circle or any other circular

Abel prize is one of the most prestigious awards given for outstanding contribution in mathematics, often considered as the Nobel Prize of Mathematics. Niels Henrik Abel Memorial fund, established on 1 January 2002, awards the Abel Prize for outstanding scientific work in the field of mathematics. The prize amount is 6 million NOK (about 1010000 USD) and

Formulas are the most important part of mathematics and as we all know one is the backbone of the latter. Considering there are thousands of mathematical formulas to help people develop analytical approach and solve problems easily — there are some that go beyond. Some formulas aren’t just timesaving but those also do wonders. In

Any integer greater than 1 is called a prime number if and only if its positive factors are 1 and the number p itself. The basic ideology involved in this post is flawed and the post has now been moved to Archives. – The Editor Prime Generating Formulas We all know how hard it is to predict a formula

Our reader Eswar Chellappa has sent his work on the solution of ‘3X+1’ problem, also called Collatz Conjecture. He had been working on the proof of Collatz Conjecture off and on for almost ten years. The Collatz Conjecture can be quoted as follow: Let $\phi : \mathbb{N} \to \mathbb{N}^+$ be a function defined such that: $$\phi(x):=

Online communities are groups of web savvy individuals who share communal interests. A community can be developed with just a single topic or by a bunch of philosophies. A better community binds its members through substantial debates. Mathematics is a very popular communal interest and there are hundreds of online communities formed in both Q&A

Linear Space or Vector Space over a field K Definition: The linear space over a field K is a non-empty set along with a function $+ : X \times X \to X$ called linear/vector addition (or just, ‘addition‘) and another function $ \cdot : K \times X \to X$ called scalar multiplication, such that for

Every mathematics student is in his own a special case — having his own qualities and snags. A math blogger is even more special. He is more than just a mathematician or just a blogger. A math blogger is an entertainer… a magician, who devises techniques of making math more readable and even more interesting.
