- Wed, 19 Jan 2022 18:50:44 +0000: A new approach to a $1 million mathematical enigma - Mathematics News -- ScienceDaily
Numbers like pi, e and phi often turn up in unexpected places in science and mathematics. Pascal's triangle and the Fibonacci sequence also seem inexplicably widespread in nature. Then there's the Riemann zeta function, a deceptively straightforward function that has perplexed mathematicians since the 19th century. The most famous quandary, the Riemann hypothesis, is perhaps the greatest unsolved question in mathematics, with the Clay Mathematics Institute offering a $1 million prize for a correct proof.
- Wed, 19 Jan 2022 17:14:45 +0000: Solving a crystal's structure when you've only got powder - Mathematics News -- ScienceDaily
Crystals reveal the hidden geometry of molecules to the naked eye. Scientists use crystals to figure out the atomic structure of new materials, but many materials can't be grown large enough. Now, a team of researchers report a new technique that can lead to the discovery of the crystalline structure of any substance.
- Tue, 11 Jan 2022 20:36:08 +0000: New model examines the effects of toxicants on populations in polluted rivers - Mathematics News -- ScienceDaily
A new mathematical model describes the interactions between a population and a toxicant in a river environment, enabling researchers to study how the way in which a pollutant moves through a river affects the wellbeing and distribution of the river's inhabitants.
- Wed, 15 Dec 2021 19:20:50 +0000: A mathematical model may give more efficient climate talks - Mathematics News -- ScienceDaily
Achieving consensus among countries in global climate negotiations is a long and complicated process. Researchers have developed a mathematical model that describes the achievement of the 2015 Paris Agreement and that may contribute to more efficient negotiations when striving for unanimity.
- Fri, 10 Dec 2021 03:21:21 +0000: Artificial intelligence that can discover hidden physical laws in various data - Mathematics News -- ScienceDaily
Researchers have successfully developed artificial intelligence technology that can extract hidden equations of motion from regular observational data and create a model that is faithful to the laws of physics. This technology could enable us to discover the hidden equations of motion behind phenomena for which the laws were considered unexplainable. For example, it may be possible to use physics-based knowledge and simulations to examine ecosystem sustainability.
