  • Thu, 18 Nov 2021 02:15:59 +0000: Exploding and weeping ceramics provide path to new shape-shifting material - Mathematics News -- ScienceDaily
    Researchers have discovered a path that could lead to shape-shifting ceramic materials. This discovery could improve everything from medical devices to electronics.
  • Tue, 16 Nov 2021 19:48:11 +0000: Game theory and economics show how to steer evolution in a better direction - Mathematics News -- ScienceDaily
    Human behavior drives the evolution of biological organisms in ways that can profoundly adversely impact human welfare. Understanding people's incentives when they do so is essential to identify policies and other strategies to improve evolutionary outcomes. In a new study, researchers bring the tools of economics and game theory to evolution management.
  • Tue, 16 Nov 2021 18:17:24 +0000: Mathematicians derive the formulas for boundary layer turbulence 100 years after the phenomenon was first formulated - Mathematics News -- ScienceDaily
    Turbulence makes many people uneasy or downright queasy. And it's given researchers a headache, too. Mathematicians have been trying for a century or more to understand the turbulence that arises when a flow interacts with a boundary, but a formulation has proven elusive.
  • Thu, 04 Nov 2021 15:53:55 +0000: When is a basin of attraction like an octopus? - Mathematics News -- ScienceDaily
    In dynamical systems research, a 'basin of attraction' is the set of all the starting points -- usually close to one another -- that arrive at the same final state as the system evolves through time. The researchers describe a simple argument showing why basins in systems with multiple attractors should look like high-dimensional octopi.
  • Wed, 27 Oct 2021 17:49:56 +0000: A mathematical model to help optimize vaccine development - Mathematics News -- ScienceDaily
    Scientists are using a mathematical model to better understand the immune response to vaccines.
