Symmetry
Symmetry (from Greek συμμετρία symmetria "agreement in dimensions, due proportion, arrangement") in everyday language refers to a sense of harmonious and beautiful proportion and balance. In mathemati...

Spintronics Advance Brings Wafer-Scale Quantum Devices Closer To Reality
An electronics technology that uses the "spin" of atomic nuclei to store and process information promises huge gains in performance over today's electron-based devices. But getting there is proving ch...
Higgs Boson Mass Explained In New Theory
Three physicists who have been collaborating in the San Francisco Bay Area over the past year have devised a new solution to a mystery that has beleaguered their field for more than 30 years. This pro...
What Do You Mean, The Universe Is Flat?
The universe is three-dimensional. The universe is four-dimensional—three for space, one for time. The universe has nine, or ten or eleven dimensions.Matter curves spacetime. The universe is flat.The ...
Incredible images capture dazzling symmetry of Iran's mosques
It's a side of Iran the rest of the world doesn't normally get to see -- the kaleidoscopically brilliant interiors of the country's intricately designed mosques. With beautiful mosaics and stained gla...
The world's most complex crystal never repeats
The most complicated crystal structure ever produced in a computer simulation is a lesson in how complexity can emerge from simple rules. The “icosahedral quasicrystal” looks ordered to the eye, but h...
Symmetry
this is a movie I made on symmetry. As most ASD children learn by looking at vsuals, I decided not to talk much but show them instead. The objective is to sh...
Symmetry (physics)
In physics, a symmetry of a physical system is a physical or mathematical feature of the system (observed or intrinsic) that is preserved or remains unchanged under some transformation.A family of par...
Symmetry in biology
Symmetry in biology is the balanced distribution of duplicate body parts or shapes. In nature and biology, symmetry is approximate. For example, plant leaves, while considered symmetric, rarely match ...

Symmetry in mathematics
Symmetry occurs not only in geometry, but also in other branches of mathematics. Symmetry is a type of invariance: the property that something does not change under a set of transformations.Given a st...
Ambidexterity
Ambidexterity is the state of being equally adept in the use of both left and right appendages (such as the hands). It is one of the most famous varieties of cross-dominance. People that are naturally...
Facial symmetry
Facial symmetry is one specific measure of bodily asymmetry. Along with traits such as averageness and youthfulness it influences judgements of aesthetic traits of physical attractiveness and beauty. ...

Mirror image
A mirror image is a reflected duplication of an object that appears identical but reversed. As an optical effect it results from reflection off of substances such as a mirror or water. It is also a co...

Reflection (mathematics)
In mathematics, a reflection (also spelled reflexion) is a mapping from a Euclidean space to itself that is an isometry with a hyperplane as a set of fixed points; this set is called the axis (in dime...

Asymmetry
Asymmetry is the absence of, or a violation of, symmetry (the property of an object being invariant to a transformation, such as reflection). Symmetry is an important property of both physical and abs...

Chirality
Chirality /kaɪˈrælɪtiː/ is a property of asymmetry important in several branches of science. The word chirality is derived from the Greek, χειρ (kheir), "hand", a familiar chiral object.An object or a...
Cross-dominance
Cross-dominance, also known as mixed-handedness, mixed dominance, or increased hand efficiency, is a motor skill manifestation where a person favors one hand for some tasks and the other hand for othe...

Conservation law
In physics, a conservation law states that a particular measurable property of an isolated physical system does not change as the system evolves over time. The exact conservation laws include: conserv...
