Mathematics Physical Sciences Limiting Infinity Ever heard of Aleph-nought or the Hilbert’s Hotel and your inquisition got the better of you? Then probably you’re acquainted with infinity and have raised certain perplexing questions about it in classrooms or on math discussions forums. For example, how can you enclose infinity? Can the infinity find the ‘finitude’ somewhere? If yes, then, would […] Written by Shumail Hassan 2018-07-222018-08-09 Saving Bookmark this article Bookmarked

Mathematics Leonhard Euler: Uncelebrated Yet Immortal and Everywhere Leonhard Euler is a name as worthy of recognition as Albert Einstein, Stephen Hawking, Isaac Newton, and Pythagoras. The last four names are present in sci-math textbooks at every level. However, Leonhard Euler, the most brilliant and the most proliferous mathematician of all time, remains invisible. He is the person behind Euler’s constant, Euler’s polyhedron […] Written by Hafsa Ahsan 2018-07-022018-10-13 Saving Bookmark this article Bookmarked

Mathematics Surfaces in Geometry Geometry is considered as an indigenous branch of mathematics that evolved in the Greeks Hellenistic period, as a practical way for dealing with lengths, areas, and volumes. By the 3rd century BC, Euclid gave an axiomatic frame to study geometry, namely the Euclidean Geometry. Euclid’s work set a standard for many centuries to follow.
