Github: Queueing theory

Queueing theory is the mathematical study of waiting lines, or queues. We use queueing theory in our software development, for purposes such as analyzing and optimizing our practices and processes, such as our customer service responsiveness, project management kanban planning, inter-process communication message queues, and devops continuous deployment pipelines.

Sky Lights: How We Knew Space Was a Vacuum (2021)

But if you’re looking for “absolute proof” it was in the mid-1940s when Germany fired V-2 rockets across the English Channel from Peenemünde. These rockets were the first to reach outer space (top graphic). Near the apex of their flight they were observed to move along a ballistic trajectory — motion in which gravity is the sole acting force. Ballistic motion can only happen in a vacuum.

Universität Göttingen

Privatdozent: The Mathematical Center of the Universe (2021)

The inception of quantum mechanics can essentially be traced back to a single “Golden Age” in the mid-1920s at one university: the Georg-August University of Göttingen, in the city of Göttingen, Germany. Home to many notable scientists, the university is associated with no less than 45 Nobel Prize winners. Included in this group are many of the figures responsible for the creation of quantum mechanics, such as Max Born, Werner Heisenberg, James Franck, Wolfgang Pauli, Eugene Winer, Paul Dirac, Enrico Fermi and J. Robert Oppenheimer.

Spektrum.de: In vier Dimensionen geschehen seltsame Dinge

Während sich die niedrigen Dimensionen (eins, zwei und drei) sowie die fünf-, sechs-, sieben- oder noch höherdimensionalen Fälle relativ einfach analysieren lassen, sorgen vier Dimensionen für erstaunlich große Probleme. »Viele Theoreme gelten für alle Dimensionen n, außer für n = 4«, erklärt der Mathematiker Ciprian Manolescu von der Stanford University. »Gerade das macht sie so spannend.«
