A pair of quantum scientists calculating the energy levels of a hydrogen atom at the University of Rochester have discovered a 360-year-old formula for pi in their equations.
I had planned for part 2 of this series about p to be about the classical area formula for the circle, but then something new came up. Well, by new I mean a new proof of something old, and it’s a surprising proof using physics.
Most Upstate New York residents keep a snow and ice scraper in their car six months out of the year. But could that become a relic of the past someday?
A new paper says that our brains can detect and process sound delays that are too short to be noticed consciously. “Much of the world around us is audiovisual,” said Duje Tadin, associate professor of brain and cognitive sciences at the University of Rochester and senior author of the study.
The Center for Emerging and Innovative Sciences at the University of Rochester has been renewed by New York State as one of its Centers for Advanced Technology. It will receive $9.2 million in funding over the next 10 years, officials said.
This technology being developed by Harris Corp., which could potentially take pictures of anyone at an airport, is at least a few years away from being implemented. And it requires researchers with an expertise in optics, photonics and imaging science.
On both occasions, Mr. Carbone, a graduate of the Eastman School of Music, tackled “Fnugg Blue,” a challenging piece by the Norwegian composer Oystein Baadsvik that required him, among other feats, to adapt the hip-hop vocal technique of beatboxing to the tuba mouthpiece.
