  • Fri, 20 Nov 2020 18:26:20 +0000: Biophysics: Geometry supersedes simulations - Mathematics News -- ScienceDaily
    Physicists have introduced a new method that allows biological pattern-forming systems to be systematically characterized with the aid of mathematical analysis. The trick lies in the use of geometry to characterize the dynamics.
  • Tue, 17 Nov 2020 16:31:10 +0000: Time to rethink predicting pandemic infection rates? - Mathematics News -- ScienceDaily
    In a new article, a physicist explains how he combined math in the form of Tchebychev's inequality with a statistical ensemble to understand how macroscopic exponential growth with different daily rates arise from person-to-person disease infection.
  • Mon, 02 Nov 2020 22:32:32 +0000: COVID-19 'super-spreading' events play outsized role in overall disease transmission - Mathematics News -- ScienceDaily
    Researchers find COVID-19 super-spreading events, in which one person infects more than six other people, are much more frequent than anticipated, and that they have an outsized contribution to coronavirus transmission.
  • Wed, 28 Oct 2020 21:14:28 +0000: Forecasting elections with a model of infectious diseases - Mathematics News -- ScienceDaily
    Election forecasting is an innately challenging endeavor, with results that can be difficult to interpret and may leave many questions unanswered after close races unfold. Researchers have now borrowed ideas from epidemiology to develop a new method for forecasting elections. The team hoped the multidisciplinary nature of their infectious disease model could expand the community that engages with polling data and raise research questions from a new perspective.
  • Mon, 26 Oct 2020 13:54:11 +0000: Divide and conquer: A new formula to minimize mathematics anxiety - Mathematics News -- ScienceDaily
    Mathematics -- it's the subject some kids love to hate. Yet despite its lack of popularity, mathematics is critical for a STEM-capable workforce and vital for current and future productivity. New research finds that boosting student confidence in mathematics is pivotal to greater engagement with the subject.
