### NIST Releases Successor to Venerable Handbook of Math Functions

The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) has released the Digital Library of Mathematical Functions (DLMF) and its printed companion, the NIST Handbook of Mathematical Functions, the much-anticipated successors to the agency's most widely cited publication of all time. These reference works contain a comprehensive set of tools useful for specialists who work with mathematical modeling and computation.

### No 'Simple Theory of Everything'

The "exceptionally simple theory of everything," proposed by a surfing physicist in 2007, does not hold water, says Emory mathematician Skip Garibaldi.

Garibaldi, a rock climber in his spare time, did the math to disprove the theory, which involves a mysterious structure known as E8. The resulting paper, co-authored by physicist Jacques Distler of the University of Texas, will appear in an upcoming issue of Communications in Mathematical Physics.

### JSLab PlotTool

A graph plotting tool made entirely in JavaScript. It uses no graphics and the generated source code is W3C compliant.

Currently real valued functions of one variable and parameter functions for plane curves are supported. You can plot using a variety of options like line resolution and axis dimensions. The first beta also adds support for limited zoom functionality. As the graph is computed real time there is no limit for the zoom level.
