Doughnut theory of dating

"You can think of it as a doughnut together with specific, delicate configurations of rational points that are very carefully placed," Duncan says."So, in the simplest of terms, it's like a doughnut that you eat, that may have sprinkles on it.The whole game in the math of elliptic curves is determining whether the doughnut has sprinkles and, if so, where exactly the sprinkles are placed." Unlike an edible doughnut, however, these mathematical doughnuts are not visible."Imagine you are holding a doughnut in the dark," Ono says.
"You wouldn't even be able to decide whether it has any sprinkles.
But the information in our O'Nan moonshine allows us to 'see' our mathematical doughnuts clearly by giving us a wealth of information about the points on elliptic curves." The findings are especially surprising since none of the pariahs, as six of math's sporadic simple groups are known, had previously appeared in moonshine theory, or anywhere else in science.
