### Mechanism of biological noise cancellation revealed

Researchers report how a particular biochemical signaling pathway cancels biological noise, ensuring the proper stem cell differentiation during development. The conclusions are based on a combination of mathematical modeling and genetic experiments on fruit flies. more...

### Using physics to predict crowd behavior

Electrons whizzing around each other and humans crammed together at a political rally don't seem to have much in common, but researchers are connecting the dots. They've developed a highly accurate mathematical approach to predict the behavior of crowds of living creatures, using methods originally developed to study large collections of quantum mechanically interacting electrons. more...

### Mathematics can assist cities in addressing unstructured neighborhoods

New mathematical models can help guide changes to the layout of poor urban neighborhoods to improve access to resources with minimum disruption and cost. more...

### A better way to count boreal birds

Knowing approximately how many individuals of a certain species are out there is important for bird conservation efforts, but raw data from bird surveys tends to underestimate bird abundance. Researchers have now tested a new statistical method to adjust for this and confirmed several mathematical tweaks that can produce better population estimates for species of conservation concern. more...

### More efficient security for cloud-based machine learning

A novel encryption method secures data used in online neural networks, without dramatically slowing their runtimes. This approach holds promise for using cloud-based neural networks for medical-image analysis and other applications that use sensitive data. more...

### Math shows how human behavior spreads infectious diseases

Mathematics can help public health workers better understand and influence human behaviors that lead to the spread of infectious disease. more...
