- Thu, 13 Feb 2020 19:15:55 +0000: Fragile topology: Strange electron flow in future materials - Mathematics News -- ScienceDaily
Crystalline materials known as topological insulators conduct surface current perfectly, except when they don't. In two new studies published in the journal Science, researchers explain how these 'fragile' poorly conducting topological states form, and how conductivity can be restored.
- Thu, 13 Feb 2020 17:42:24 +0000: Mathematical model reveals behavior of cellular enzymes - Mathematics News -- ScienceDaily
Mathematical modeling helps researchers to understand how enzymes in the body work to ensure normal functioning. The models also can show how genetic mutations alter the enzymes' behavior in ways that cause disease, including cancer.
- Wed, 29 Jan 2020 19:33:56 +0000: Researchers rank 'smartest' schools of fish when it comes to travel formations - Mathematics News -- ScienceDaily
A research team has showcased a new mathematical model capable of determining what formations give a school's swimmers the biggest advantage when it comes to energy efficiency and speeds, particularly when compared to school-less fishes.
- Tue, 28 Jan 2020 16:47:05 +0000: New mathematical model for amyloid formation - Mathematics News -- ScienceDaily
Scientists report on a mathematical model for the formation of amyloid fibrils. The model sheds light on how the aggregation process can occur in a catalytic manner, something that has not been previously well understood.
- Thu, 23 Jan 2020 14:58:33 +0000: How moon jellyfish get about - Mathematics News -- ScienceDaily
With their translucent bells, moon jellyfish (Aurelia aurita) move around the oceans in a very efficient way. Scientists have now used a mathematical model to investigate how these cnidarians manage to use their neural networks to control their locomotion even when they are injured. The results may also contribute to the optimization of underwater robots.
