The Colours of Infinity

The Beauty and Power of Fractals

via GIPHY

Arthur C. Clarke presents this unusual documentary on the mathematical discovery of the Mandelbrot Set (M-Set) in the visually spectacular world of fractal geometry. This show relates the science of the M-Set to nature in a way that seems to identify the hand of God in the design of the universe itself. Dr. Mandelbrot in 1980 discovered the infinitely complex geometrical shape called the Mandelbrot Set using a very simple equation with computers and graphics.

Counting from Infinity: Yitang Zhang and the Twin Prime Conjecture

The story of a little‐known mathematician with no permanent job, working in complete isolation, and his important breakthrough towards solving the Twin Prime Conjecture

In April 2013, a lecturer at the University of New Hampshire submitted a paper to the Annals of Mathematics. Within weeks word spread – a little-known mathematician, with no permanent job, working in complete isolation had made an important breakthrough towards solving the Twin Prime Conjecture. Yitang Zhang‘s techniques for bounding the gaps between primes soon led to rapid progress by the Polymath Group, and a further innovation by James Maynard.

Poema para Galileu

A Queda Livre – Galileu Descreve o Movimento
Parte 6 de 6 da série A mecânica de Galileu

Poema para Galileu

 

 

 

Diz a minha mãe que eu comecei a fazer versos aos 5 anos e aos 10 tive a comoção de ver os primeiros impressos e públicos.
Escrever poemas foi sempre para mim um estado de angústia, um sofrimento autêntico. Amorteci todo esse sofrimento durante anos até ao dia em que por motivos dolorosos me desfiz dele por completo na ingénua presunção de que me atrapalhava. Sobre isso

Soluções dos Desafios

 

Desafio 1

Houve muitos trabalhos que antecederam o de Galileu, no que diz respeito ao movimento. No período de 1280 a 1340, matemáticos de Merton College, em Oxford, meditaram cuidadosamente sobre diversas grandezas que variavam com o tempo. Um teorema geral, conhecido por “Teorema de Merton” ou “Regra da Velocidade Média”, resume um resultado que se mostrou de grande importância.

Este teorema, … Ler mais

A teoria aristotélica do movimento

O modelo de Universo de Ptolomeu era essencialmente o aristotélico, ou seja, um cosmo finito, constituído de esferas concêntricas, com a Terra imóvel no centro. A atmosfera chegaria até a altura da Lua, definindo o espaço do mundo “sublunar”, constituído por quatro elementos, Terra, Água, Fogo e Ar. A partir da esfera da Lua, no mundo “supralunar”, constituído de um “quinto elemento”, o Éter, haveria … Ler mais
