Even if the subject matter is not Brett: If I compare math to physics: We have this domain called particle physics, and the deepest theory we have in particle physics is called the standard model. This describes all of the fundamental particles that exist and the interactions between them, the forces that exist between them, and the gauge bosons, w…
 
Games have been of interest to mathematicians almost since mathematics became a subject. In fact, entire branches of mathematics have arisen simply to analyze certain games. The Raven's Hat: Fallen Pictures, Rising Sequences, and Other Mathematical Games (MIT Press, 2021) does something very different, and something that I think listeners will find…

Remember those days when it was possible to climb aboard a plane and jet off around the world? Well, while we might be yearning for foreign shores, there's no denying that air travel comes with a big ol' carbon footprint. But is it possible to make aeroplanes 'greener'? We chat to Dr Chiara Falsetti, a researcher at the Oxford Thermofluids Institut…

It’s been 60 years, to the day, since Russian cosmonaut Yuri Gagarin was the first human to travel to space in a tiny capsule attached to an R-7 ballistic missile, a powerful rocket originally designed to carry a 3-5 megaton nuclear warhead. In this new episode marking the 60th anniversary of this historic space flight—the first of its kind—Scienti…
 
Think like a Physicist? Physicists have their own culture, and part of that culture is a kind of collective, self reflection. One of the most common targets? Creative problem solving. If you want to see a physicist student panic, as them to model the electron configuration of a benzene ring. As undergraduates spend weeks studying the electron confi…
 
You’re always bound by the laws of physics Naval: There goes my solution for Zeno’s paradox, which says before you can get all the way somewhere, you have to get halfway there. And before you can get halfway there, you have to get a quarter of the way there, and therefore, you’ll never get there. One way to get past that is to say even a series of …
 
Telling a story seems like the most natural, human thing in the world. We all do it, all the time. And who amongst us doesn’t think we could be a fairly competent novelist, if we just bothered to take the time? But storytelling is a craft like any other, with its own secret techniques and best practices. Charlie Jane Anders is a multiple-award-winn…
 
Do you find students give up too easily when working on math problems that are unfamiliar? Do you find yourself stuck pre-teaching concepts to students BEFORE they have a chance to truly engage in the problem solving process just so they can “get through the problem”? Our constant pre-teaching of concepts is just one of the reasons students struggl…

Quantum theory and relativity disagree Naval: You said that we went from atoms in the time of Democrates, down to nuclei, and from there to protons and neutrons, and then to quarks. It’s particles all the way down, to paraphrase Feynman. We can keep going forever. But it’s not quite forever, right? At some point you run into the Planck length. Bret…
 
Physics Friday Majorana Particles : The neutrino may well be a Majorana fermion, experiments are currently underway. In condensed matter, many folks are hot on the trail of a quasi Majorana fermion. A recent claimed observation has been retracted. Science is messy. Check out Thomas Lewton's article on the subject. Xenobots : Check out Doug Blackist…

Human relationships are often described in the language of “chemistry” — does that make the beliefs and attitudes of individuals a kind of “physics”? It is, at least, a fascinating avenue of inquiry. In particular, the field of statistical mechanics offers potent tools for understanding how exactly people form their views and change their minds. Fr…
 
Be skeptical of absolute certainty Brett: All knowledge is conjectural. It’s always being guessed. It’s our best understanding at any given time. You’re right to say that the axioms might be incorrect. How do we know that an axiom is incorrect? Traditionally the answer has been, “Because it’s clearly and obviously the case.” How can you prove that …
 
Angular Momentum, Magnetic Dipoles and Quantized Spin We take ideas in first year physics: angular momentum and current loops, and describe to what extent they can model the magnetic dipole moment of elementary particles, and more generally, the idea of quantized spin. Also. Read Nobel laureate Dudley Hershbach's fun account of replicating the Ster…

Incentive homework without having to grade it Last week we discussed using quizzes as a poll for student’s comprehension of the material. This week, we’re turning that idea on its head. Let’s discuss the use of quizzes to motivate students to LEARN the material. Compulsory homework motivates students to only do problems once. And some problems are …
 
Testing your Deliberate Practice The most impactful advice for learning math and science I ever receive came - unsurprisingly - in a physics class. It was an electrodynamics class. It’s heavy subject full of complicated equations, solutions and derivations. Even for an advanced class, the material was so thick and so dense that even the professor f…
 
In a world flooded with information, everybody necessarily makes choices about what we pay attention to. This basic fact can be manipulated in any number of ways, from advertisers micro-targeting specific groups to repressive governments flooding social media with misinformation, or for that matter well-meaning people passing along news from sketch…
 
In this episode we catch up with Nathan Vaillancourt who was on episode 28 of the podcast. This time around Nathan unpacks where he was in his journey the last time we spoke and the progress he’s made since then.

Proofs are not certainties Naval: There are two other scientific thinkers who I like who come to similar conclusions as Deutsch. One is Nassim Taleb, who popularized the idea of the black swan, which is that no number of white swans disproves the existence of a black swan. You can never conclusively say all swans are white. You can never establish …

From its more mainstream, business-focused and business-friendly “Lean In” variants, to more radical, critical and intersectional understandings of feminism, the past decade has seen a flourishing of discussion from those proposing and critiquing different schools of thought for the way we think about gender in society.
