A new machine learning framework provides doctors with a reliable tool to help diagnose Alzheimer's disease early.

What do we know about monkeypox, what do we not know, and what efforts are going into modelling it?

The COVID-19 emergency resulted in some amazing mathematical collaborations.

Here's a simple game at which a human can out-fox even the cleverest algorithm.

The INI is celebrating its 30th birthday. What is it and what is it do for maths and mathematicians?

Hi guys,

First, thanks for a great article.

As I read it, the idea is that an "average" (180cm) person's shadow hits the ellipse at the right time if they stand on the right date.

Just to confirm, this is different to a "traditional" sundial where it is the edge of the gonome that casts the shadow. In an Analemmatic it is the top of the (vertical) pointer that should intersect with the ellipse?

I ask because I want to use this to make a dial with a fixed pointer (the top will be a literal point), but curved hour lines so that given the date one can tell the time.
