Mathematics can save lives at sea
An international research collaboration has developed a mathematical method that can speed up search and rescue operations at sea. The new algorithm accurately predicts locations to which objects and people floating in water will drift. more...
Novel insight reveals topological tangle in unexpected corner of the universe
In a recent theoretical study, scientists discovered the presence of the Hopfion topological structure in nano-sized particles of ferroelectrics -- materials with promising applications in microelectronics and information technology. more...
Parents with degrees give their children significant advantage in math
Children of parents with a degree are almost a year of schooling ahead in math by the age 11 than peers whose parents have just GCSEs, a new study has discovered. more...
Decoding the massively complex gut microbiome
For something that has evolved with us over millions of years, and remains part of our physiology over our entire lives, our gut microbiome, oddly, remains somewhat of a mystery. Comprised of trillions of microbes of at least a thousand different species, this community of bacteria, viruses, protozoa and fungi in our gastrointestinal tracts is unique to each individual and has been found to be intimately connected to various fundamental aspects of our fitness, from our immunity to our metabolism and mental health. more...
All disease models are 'wrong,' but scientists are working to fix that
What can researchers do when their mathematical models of the spread of infectious diseases don't match real-world data? One research team is working on a solution. more...
A new way to accurately estimate COVID-19 death toll
A new mathematical model has been created to estimate the death toll linked to the COVID-19 pandemic in the United States and could be used around the world. more...
Game theory suggests more efficient cancer therapy
Mathematicians are using game theory to model how this competition could be leveraged, so cancer treatment -- which also takes a toll on the patient's body -- might be administered more sparingly, with maximized effect. more...
