DISCOVERY
The math of doughnuts: 'Moonshine' sheds light on elliptic curves
In the simplest terms, an elliptic curve is a doughnut shape with carefully placed points, explain Emory mathematicians Ken Ono and John Duncan. "The whole game in the math of elliptic curves is determining whether the doughnut has sprinkles and, if so, where exactly the sprinkles are placed," Duncan says. Their new theory helps to do just that.
