May 21, 2015 — Scientists have moved a step closer to identifying the nanostructure of cellulose -- the basic structural component of plant cell walls. The insights could pave the way for more disease resistant ... read more

May 20, 2015 — The same spring rains that lessen producers' concerns about drought can also lead to soil erosion and nutrient runoff. Keeping soil and fertilizers where they belong--in the field--benefits ... read more

May 15, 2015 — In future, the service life of bridges may be estimated more accurate than ever before. Engineers have refined mathematical models for calculating them. Unlike previous models, they take local ... read more

Predicting Magnetic Behavior in Copper Oxide Superconductors

May 14, 2015 — Enabled by high-performance computing, the magnetic couplings in model systems for copper-containing cuprate superconductors were accurately calculated for the first ... read more

May 14, 2015 — New theories on game intelligence could change the world of team sports forever. Game intelligence is not necessarily something you are born with but something you can learn, according to new ... read more

Computer Simulation Accurately Replicated Real-Life Trauma Outcomes

May 11, 2015 — A computer simulation, or 'in silico' model, of the body's inflammatory response to traumatic injury accurately replicated known individual outcomes and predicted population results ... read more

Airflow Model to Reduce Time on the Tarmac

May 6, 2015 — A mechanical engineering professor describes in a new article a new mathematical tool he developed to calculate the flow of turbulent air produced by a plane's wing tips when an airplane takes ... read more

May 6, 2015 — A clever combination of two different types of computer simulations enabled a group of researchers to uncover an unexpectedly cooperative group dynamic: the spontaneous emergence of resource sharing ... read more

Non-Euclidean Geometries for Grid Cells

May 6, 2015 — Grid cells, space-mapping neurons of the entorhinal cortex of rodents, could also work for hyperbolic surfaces. A new study tests a model (a computer simulation) based on mathematical principles, ... read more

Simulating Seasons: Researchers Use Supercomputing to Assess Impact of Climate Change on Malawi's Growing Season

May 5, 2015 — Malawi, a small landlocked country in southeast Africa, is home to 13 million people and is one of the least-developed countries in the world. Its security is highly dependent on rain-fed ... read more

Quantum Particles at Play: Game Theory Elucidates the Collective Behavior of Bosons

Apr. 28, 2015 — Quantum particles behave in strange ways and are often difficult to study experimentally. Using mathematical methods drawn from game theory, physicists have shown how bosons, which like to enter the ... read more

Apr. 27, 2015 — Researchers have captured the first 3-D video of a living algal embryo turning itself inside out, from a sphere to a mushroom shape and back again. The results could help unravel the mechanical ... read more

Apr. 22, 2015 — In their efforts to forecast the spread of an invasive worm species, researchers are bringing a new weapon to bear: statistical ... read more

Tax-Efficient Mutual Fund Managers Savvier Than Their Peers, Study Shows

Apr. 21, 2015 — Tax-efficient mutual funds perform better before and after taxes, according to new ... read more

Apr. 20, 2015 — A new mathematical model that uses drug-target kinetics to predict how drugs work in vivo may provide a foundation to improve drug discovery, which is frequently hampered by the inability to predict ... read more

New Mathematical Method Enhances Hydrology Simulations

Apr. 15, 2015 — A team applied sophisticated mathematical solutions to fine tune water and energy exchange parameters, numerical stand-ins for complex processes, to more accurately simulate water and energy fluxes ... read more

Understanding Thermo-Mechanical Properties of a New Class of Materials

Apr. 17, 2015 — Scientists describe how an accurate statistical description of heterogeneous particulate materials, which is used within statistical micromechanics theories, governs the overall thermo-mechanical ... read more

Apr. 15, 2015 — Scientists have uncovered patterns of DNA anomalies that predict a woman's outcome significantly better than tumor stage. In addition, these patterns are the first known indicator of how well a ... read more

Comparing Climate Models to Real World Shows Differences in Precipitation Intensity

Apr. 17, 2015 — Precipitation is difficult to represent in global climate models. Although most single-column models can reproduce the observed average precipitation reasonably well, there are significant ... read more

Should a Political Party Form a Coalition? Voters and Math Decide

Apr. 15, 2015 — A new paper proposes mathematical models to analyze political decision-making. "Mathematics is important in many aspects of social behavior. Politics is just one of these aspects, since some of ... read more
