  • Tue, 10 Jul 2018 22:53:59 +0000: Challenging the conventional wisdom on calculus - Mathematics News -- ScienceDaily
    Contrary to widely-held opinion, taking high school calculus isn't necessary for success later in college calculus -- what's more important is mastering the prerequisites, algebra, geometry, and trigonometry -- that lead to calculus. That's according to a study of more than 6,000 college freshmen at 133 colleges.
  • Wed, 27 Jun 2018 20:03:22 +0000: Rough terrain? No problem for beaver-inspired autonomous robot - Mathematics News -- ScienceDaily
    Researchers are using stigmergy, a biological phenomenon that has been used to explain everything from the behavior of termites and beavers to the popularity of Wikipedia, to build new problem-solving autonomous robots.
  • Thu, 21 Jun 2018 16:18:57 +0000: Engineering bacteria to exhibit stochastic Turing patterns - Mathematics News -- ScienceDaily
    A new study has brought science one step closer to a molecular-level understanding of how patterns form in living tissue. The researchers engineered bacteria that, when incubated and grown, exhibited stochastic Turing patterns: a 'lawn' of synthesized bacteria in a petri dish fluoresced an irregular pattern of red polka dots on a field of green.
  • Wed, 20 Jun 2018 13:47:37 +0000: Evaluation method for the impact of wind power fluctuation on power system quality - Mathematics News -- ScienceDaily
    Abrupt changes of wind power generation output are a source of severe damage to power systems. Researchers have developed a stochastic modeling method that enables to evaluate the impact of such phenomena.
  • Tue, 19 Jun 2018 16:24:46 +0000: When photons spice up the energy levels of quantum particles - Mathematics News -- ScienceDaily
    For the first time, a team of mathematical physicists, call upon supersymmetry to explain the behavior of particles that have received a photon and are subjected to particular potential energies known as shape-invariant potentials.
