# Quanta Magazine

Updated: Feb 20

I would like to introduce you "*Quanta Magazine" *

**https://www.quantamagazine.org/**

*Quanta Magazine is an editorially independent online publication launched by the Simons Foundation to enhance public understanding of science. *

*Why Quanta? Albert Einstein called photons “quanta of light.” Our goal is to “illuminate science.”*

You can find articles about physics, biology, mathematics as well as the computer science

It has been already but with the latest addition to the magazine, it becomes a must-to-read resource for every math-lover.

**The writers define the map as**

*"From simple starting points — Numbers, **Shapes**, **Change** — the map branches out into interwoven tendrils of thought. Follow it, and you’ll understand how prime numbers connect to geometry, how symmetries give a handle on questions of infinity.*

*And although the map is necessarily incomplete — mathematics is too grand to fit into any single map — we hope to give you a flavor for the major questions and controversies that animate the field, as well as the conceptual tools needed to dive in."*

You will not be able to leave the platform when navigating on this map.

Another great math article from the magazine is

**"**__Solution: ‘Natural Law and Elegant Math’__**" **

*addresses *Eugene Wigner’s famous article “The Unreasonable Effectiveness of Mathematics in the Natural Sciences and asks *if it is that the way nature really works?*

Since launching as *Quanta* on July 16, 2013, the magazine has attracted a loyal and rapidly growing audience through its core news features as well as interviews, columns, blog posts, videos, puzzles and podcasts. The magazine’s ** seven-minute planetarium show,** titled “Journey to the Birth of the Solar System,” has been picked up by 14 planetariums and counting.

Two *Quanta Magazine* writers have been recognized for their recent work covering physics and mathematics.

Natalie Wolchover, *Quanta*’s senior physics writer, won the American Institute of Physics’ 2017 Science Communication Award in the articles category for her story “What No New Particles Means for Physics.”

Kevin Hartnett, *Quanta*’s senior math writer, will be featured in The Best Writing on Mathematics 2017 for his feature “A Unified Theory of Randomness.”

Have a good read!
