- Wed, 15 May 2019 18:40:08 +0000: Scientific reproducibility does not equate to scientific truth, mathematical model finds - Mathematics News -- ScienceDaily
Reproducible scientific results are not always true and true scientific results are not always reproducible, according to a mathematical model.
- Thu, 09 May 2019 18:26:59 +0000: Mathematical framework explores how the brain keeps a beat - Mathematics News -- ScienceDaily
A new mathematical model demonstrates how neurons in the brain could work together to learn and keep a musical beat.
- Thu, 02 May 2019 14:08:49 +0000: Mathematician's breakthrough on non-toxic pest control - Mathematics News -- ScienceDaily
Breakthrough 'gene silencing' technique uses naturally occurring soil bacteria to kill specific crop-destroying pests without harming other insects or the environment. Non-toxic pest control could help feed growing global population, boost organic food production and drive bio-fuel production. Experiments show up to 92% more crops survive with this approach compared to no pest control.
- Wed, 01 May 2019 15:44:30 +0000: New research may be used to treat cancer, heal combat wounds - Mathematics News -- ScienceDaily
Researchers have developed computational models using a microbiology procedure that may be used to improve novel cancer treatments and treat combat wounds.
- Tue, 30 Apr 2019 15:11:42 +0000: New mathematical approach tested for the search of flight MH370 - Mathematics News -- ScienceDaily
The 2014 disappearance of Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370 remains ones of the biggest mysteries in aviation. Recent efforts combining satellite data with a new mathematical approach, analyzing how debris moves around the ocean, aim to make headway in the search. Using Markov chain models, a team of researchers has narrowed down a potential crash location substantially north of the region where most search efforts have concentrated.
