Quasiparticles that behave like massless fermions, known as Weyl fermions, have been in recent years at the center of a string of exciting findings in condensed matter physics. Physicists now report experiments in which they got a handle on one of the defining properties of Weyl fermions -- their chirality.
A guest post by Beth Burroughs, Montana State UniversityYou might have noticed a recent flurry of activity by mathematicians engaged in discussions about the teaching of mathematics. A few examples:The Common Vision project is a joint effort of five organizations in the mathematical sciences (AMATYC, AMS, ASA, MAA and SIAM) focused on modernizing undergradua […]
