- Wed, 11 Dec 2019 19:57:04 +0000: First mathematical proof for key law of turbulence in fluid mechanics - Mathematics News -- ScienceDaily
Turbulence is one of the least understood phenomena of the physical world. Long considered too hard to understand and predict mathematically, turbulence is the reason the Navier-Stokes equations, which describe how fluids flow, are so hard to solve that there is a million-dollar reward for anyone who can prove them mathematically. But now, mathematicians have broken through the barrier and developed the first rigorous mathematical proof for a fundamental law of turbulence.
- Thu, 05 Dec 2019 18:05:30 +0000: Water animation gets easier - Mathematics News -- ScienceDaily
A team of computer science professors created a method to quickly resize animations of fluids without having to completely re-simulate the entire sequence.
- Wed, 27 Nov 2019 21:12:39 +0000: A method with roots in AI uncovers how humans make choices in groups and social media - Mathematics News -- ScienceDaily
Using a mathematical framework with roots in artificial intelligence and robotics, researchers were able to uncover the process for how a person makes choices in groups. And, they also found they were able to predict a person's choice more often than more traditional descriptive methods.
- Thu, 21 Nov 2019 17:17:42 +0000: Mathematician develops model to control spread of aquatic invasive species - Mathematics News -- ScienceDaily
Adjusting the water flow rate in a river can prevent invasive species from moving upstream and expanding their range. An applied mathematician has developed a partial differential equation model to find the desired flow rate to reduce invasive populations.
- Mon, 18 Nov 2019 14:41:11 +0000: Foam offers way to manipulate light - Mathematics News -- ScienceDaily
Scientists have shown that a type of foam long studied by scientists is able to block particular wavelengths of light, a coveted property for next-generation information technology that uses light instead of electricity.
