Scientists Discover a Jewel at the Heart of Quantum Physics

Totaly non-dental but just WOW:

Interactions that were previously calculated with mathematical formulas thousands of terms long can now be described by computing the volume of the corresponding jewel-like “amplituhedron,”which yields an equivalent one-term expression.

“The degree of efficiency is mind-boggling,” …. “You can easily do, on paper, computations that were infeasible even with a computer before.”

The new geometric version of quantum field theory could also facilitate the search for a theory of quantum gravity that would seamlessly connect the large- and small-scale pictures of the universe.
