A CT scan or computed tomography scan (formerly known as a computed axial tomography or CAT scan) is a medical imaging technique that uses computer-processed combinations of multiple X-ray measurements taken from different angles to produce tomographic (cross-sectional) images (virtual “slices”) of a body, allowing the user to see inside the body noninvasively. The personnel […]

I often deal with mathematical models based on differential and integral Calculus, which are a powerful tool and used in modeling the behavior of systems in various fields: physics, medicine, economy, chemistry, architecture, etc.I would like to raise an interesting issue of the time function in the context of models based on the exponential function […]

From my perspective it’s the best book about astronomy from physics point of view. This publication is a comprehensive introduction to classical astronomy as well as modern astrophysics and cosmology. The book presents the most important astronomical concepts as well as the underlying physical principles. In addition to theoretical considerations, the reader will find in […]
The Pakistani physicist’s work led to the discovery of the Higgs boson, but he was disowned in his home country for his faith. Now a Netflix film is putting him back in the spotlight. Salam’s notable achievements include the Pati–Salam model, magnetic photon, vector meson, Grand Unified Theory, work on supersymmetry and, most importantly, electroweak […]

The main targets of the air raids on the Third Reich were not the factories of weapons (tanks, planes, naval ships) or ammunition, as it might seem, but FACTORIES OF BEARINGS. The bombing plan was developed by a specially created cell in the USA, which included MATHEMATICS (Abraham Wald). The Applied Mathematics Panel was established […]

Physicist Narinder Singh Kapany( he came from India), creator of optical fibers and 100 other patents in the field of optics, was the first to transmit images through fiber optics back in 1954 and laid the foundation for high speed internet technology(much more earlier then traditional internet which has been created in 1969). He not […]
