enSCIENCE OF THE WINTER OLYMPICS: MATHLETES
http://www.scivee.tv/node/37018
<p>It's been called "the Queen of Sciences"--mathematics. It might not be as obvious in Olympic sports as physics or materials-engineering, but math--from simple arithmetic to calculus--is part of every jump, every spin, every move the athletes make on snow or ice. Mathematician Edward Burger from Williams College explains why math counts.</p>

<p>NASCAR corners are divided into three parts because the car's grip changes in different parts of a turn. The higher center of gravity in the new car challenges crew chiefs to minimize weight shift around a turn. Equipment like the seven-post rig helps, but the ultimate test is on the track.</p>

<p>"Science of NFL Football" is a 10-part video series funded by the National Science Foundation and produced in partnership with the National Football League. In this segment, NBC's Lester Holt looks at the role vectors play every time an NFL quarterback throws a pass. With the help of former NFL quarterback Joey Harrington, NSF-funded scientists Professor John Ziegert of Clemson University and Professor Rhonda Hughes of Bryn Mawr College explain how to use vectors to calculate the speed and direction needed for a completed pass.</p>

<p>"Science of NFL Football" is a 10-part video series funded by the National Science Foundation and produced in partnership with the National Football League. NBC's Lester Holts explores the path a defender must take in order to tackle a ball carrier, and how this distance - called the "angle of pursuit" - can be calculated by using the Pythagorean Theorem to find the hypotenuse of a right triangle, and the distance of a defender's angle of pursuit.

http://www.scivee.tv/node/15455
<p>Carsten Schultz speaks on "What is ... Morse Theory?" at the "What is ...?" seminar. The talk took place on Friday, November 13, 4pm at Freie Universität Berlin.<br />
Abstract<br />
A Morse function on a differentiable manifold is a real valued function with only nice critical points. The idea behind Morse Theory is to use a function like this to obtain global information on the manifold. We will have a look at some instances of this approach. <a href="https://www.math.fu-berlin.de/w/Math/WhatIsMorseTheory" title="https://www.math.fu-berlin.de/w/Math/WhatIsMorseTheory" rel="nofollow">https://www.math.fu-berlin.de/w/Math/WhatIsMorseTheory</a></p>
