La rubrique Feature Articles est décrite comme : "News and information on developments in mathematics and the computational, physical and life sciences."

Elle comporte les articles suivants, tous d’un très grand intérêt :


- Getting Into Shapes : From Hyperbolic Geometry to Cube Complexes and Back by Erica Klarreich October 2, 2012

Thirty years after William Thurston articulated a grand mathematical vision, a proof by Ian Agol marks the end of an era in the study of three-dimensional shapes.

- Geometry of Spaghetti Code by George Hart August 16, 2012

A sculpture project built entirely with right angles combines math and art in subtle and surprising ways.


- Network Solutions by Erica Klarreich April 24, 2012

A new breed of ultrafast computer algorithms offers computer scientists a novel tool to probe the structure of large networks.


- Hitting a Nerve by Dana Mackenzie February 10, 2012

A new approach to magnetic resonance imaging allows doctors to trace the connections between different parts of the brain, creating the equivalent of a “wiring diagram.”


-  Approximately Hard : The Unique Games Conjecture by Erica Klarreich October 6, 2011
