Submission + - Leaked memo shows CERN small Higgs->

An anonymous reader writes: A leaked memo from the CERN's ATLAS experiment servers shows a paper that claims to have seen evidence for a non-Standard Model 115GeV Higgs boson (a very light Higgs). Despite the paper being on the CERN servers, the party line is, “This is not an official result of the ATLAS experiment.” Author's include Wisconsin physicist, Sau Lau Wu, who has been on the hunt for the light Higgs for quite some time.

Euler's Partition Function Theory Finished 117

universegeek writes "Mathematician Ken Ono, from Emory, has solved a 250-year-old problem: how to exactly and explicitly generate partition numbers. Ono and colleagues were able to finally do this by realizing that the pattern of partition numbers is fractal (PDF). This pattern allowed them to find a finite, algebraic formula, which is like striking oil in mathematics."
