My name is Lê and I believe that the greatest challenge in education is to make science and math appealing.
This is why I aim at bringing enthusiasm and excitement to the readers’ learning experience.

The Harmonious Mathematics of MusicThe Harmonious Mathematics of Music By Lê Nguyên Hoang | Updated:2015-12 | Views: 2851 It was when hearing the sounds of hammers that Pythagoras realized the ubiquity of numbers in mathematical harmony. He would go on laying down the mathematical foundations of music, based on octaves, perfect fifths and major thirds. This mathematics of music would then become the favourite playground of all musicians, from Beethoven to Gangnam Style.

Game Theory and the Nash EquilibriumGame Theory and the Nash Equilibrium By Lê Nguyên Hoang | Updated:2016-01 | Views: 9463 In the movie “A Beautiful Mind”, the character is John Nash. He is one of the founders of a large and important field of applied mathematics called game theory. Game Theory is the study of human interactions. Its fallouts in economy, politics or biology are countless. This article gives you an introduction to the concepts of this amazing way of thinking.

Symmetries and Group TheorySymmetries and Group Theory By Lê Nguyên Hoang | Updated:2016-02 | Views: 2190 Beauty is extremely hard to define. Yet, physicists and artists seem to agree on an important feature of beauty, created by mathematicians: Symmetries. This article aims at introducing the beauty and the concepts on symmetries, from the basic geometrical symmetries to the more abstract fundamental automorphisms.

The Essence of Quantum MechanicsThe Essence of Quantum Mechanics By Lê Nguyên Hoang | Updated:2016-02 | Views: 8267 Quantum mechanics is the most accurate and tested scientific theory, Its applications to real life are countless, as all new technologies are based on its principles. Yet, it’s also probably the most misunderstood theory, because it constantly contradicts common sense. This article presents the most important features of the theory.

The Limitless Vertigo of Cantor’s InfiniteThe Limitless Vertigo of Cantor’s Infinite By Lê Nguyên Hoang | Updated:2015-12 | Views: 2237 No one believed him. Not even fellow mathematicians. They thought he was wrong. They thought he was crazy. Even he ended up doubting himself and went crazy. And yet, he had mathematically proved it all. Georg Cantor had figured out how to manipulate the infinite. Even more remarkable, he showed that there were actually several infinities; and some are bigger than others!

Numbers and ConstructibilityNumbers and Constructibility By Lê Nguyên Hoang | Updated:2016-02 | Views: 5059 Last summer, I got to discover Morellet’s artwork on inclined grids. Amazingly, this artwork is a display of the irrationality of $\sqrt{2}$! It’s also a strong argument for the existence of this number. In this article, after discussing that, I take readers further by discussing what numbers can be constructed geometrically, algebraically, analytically or set theoretically using the power of mathematics!

Computing Hunger worldwide: the Global Hunger Index (GHI)Computing Hunger worldwide: the Global Hunger Index (GHI) By Estève Giraud | Updated:2015-12 | Views: 490 The Global Hunger Index was first published in 2006 by the International Food Policy Research Institute and the NGO Welthungerhilfe. In 2007, Concern worldwide joined them. Since then, the Index reports every year the evolution of the hunger situation worldwide and focus on a given topic. How is it calculated? And what is hunger? How are we connected ? What can be done? To learn more, read the article below.
