Ramanujan's formulas for $1/\pi$ and their generalizations remain an amazing topic, with many mathematical challenges.Recently it was observed that the formulas possess spectacular `supercongruence' counterparts.For example, truncating the sum in...

We need to have an open discussion about several issues with the types of assessments that we give to our students. With online solutions readily available and contract cheating in the news, we need to re-evaluate the types of assessments that we...

According to the principle of locality in physics, events taking place at different locations should behave independently, a feature expected to be reflected  in the measurements. In quantum field theory, measuring often requires to renormalise and...

 Non-negative polynomials are fundamental objects of study in real algebraic geometry. Testing the non-negativity of polynomials is known to be NP hard. Because of this, one generally looks to satisfy easier certificates of non-negativity. A basic...
