Keio graduates fracture mathematics issue that old Greeks dealt with : The A.

As brainteasers go, the problem seems easy enough to understand. Is it possible for two triangles of different shapes to have the same perimeter and occupy the same area? Two young graduates of Tokyo’s Keio University have just proved a theorem to solve the conundrum. Yoshinosuke Hirakawa and Hideki Matsumura said in their published article that although the concept is “quite elementary,” finding the proof involved “sophisticated theory of modern arithmetic geometry.” Hirakawa, 28, and Matsumura, 26, both postgraduate students in advanced mathematics at Keio’s Faculty of […]

The depths of the Indian Ocean off the coast of Australia have been scoured for four years by searchers looking for the remains of missing Malaysia Airlines Flight 370.  While the missing airliner is yet to be found, the unprecedented sonar hunt has instead yielded two ancient shipwrecks and historians say they may have solved the 19th century mystery of what happened to the vessels, which were carrying loads of coal. Maritime historians published details Thursday of the locations where the ships were found in a 274,000-square-mile […]
