  • Thu, 21 Jan 2021 20:09:38 +0000: Why older adults must go to the front of the vaccine line - Mathematics News -- ScienceDaily
    A new global, mathematical modeling study shows that in most cases prioritizing older adults for COVID-19 vaccines saves the most lives. It also found that, in some cases, more lives could be saved and infections prevented if those who've already tested positive step to the back of the line.
  • Thu, 21 Jan 2021 18:21:32 +0000: Mathematical framework enables accurate characterization of shapes - Mathematics News -- ScienceDaily
    In nature, many things have evolved that differ in size, color and, above all, in shape. While the color or size of an object can be easily described, the description of a shape is more complicated. Researchers have now outlined a new and improved way to describe shapes based on a network representation that can also be used to reassemble and compare shapes.
  • Wed, 20 Jan 2021 00:43:26 +0000: Constructing termite turrets without a blueprint - Mathematics News -- ScienceDaily
    Following a series of studies on termite mound physiology and morphogenesis over the past decade, researchers have now developed a mathematical model to help explain how termites construct their intricate mounds.
  • Wed, 06 Jan 2021 14:53:18 +0000: A bit too much: Reducing the bit width of Ising models for quantum annealing - Mathematics News -- ScienceDaily
    Quantum annealers are devices that physically implement a quantum system called the 'Ising model' to solve combinatorial optimization problems. However, the coefficients of the Ising model often require a large bit width, making it difficult to implement physically. Now, scientists demonstrate a method to reduce the bit width of any Ising model, increasing the applicability and versatility of quantum annealers in many fields, including cryptography, logistics, and artificial intelligence.
  • Thu, 24 Dec 2020 16:31:12 +0000: Mathematical modeling can help balance economy, health during pandemic - Mathematics News -- ScienceDaily
    Using mathematical modeling, new interdisciplinary research determines the best course of action when it comes to walking the line between economic stability and the best possible health outcomes.
