There are two kinds of scientific progress: the methodical

experimentation and categorization which gradually extend the
boundaries of knowledge, and the revolutionary leap of genius
which redefines and transcends those boundaries. Acknowledging
our debt to the former, we yearn nonetheless for the latter.

—Academician Prokhor Zakharov,
“Address to the Faculty”

By using the power of Information Networks to speed calculations and encourage collaborations, researchers make giant strides in the field of Nonlinear Mathematics, with significant military applications.
