  • Thu, 13 May 2021 18:24:51 +0000: Making AI algorithms show their work - Mathematics News -- ScienceDaily
    Artificial intelligence (AI) learning machines can be trained to solve problems and puzzles on their own instead of using rules that we made for them. But often, researchers do not know what rules the machines make for themselves. A new method quizzes a machine-learning program to figure out what rules it learned on its own and if they are the right ones.
  • Mon, 10 May 2021 14:43:31 +0000: Universal equation for explosive phenomena - Mathematics News -- ScienceDaily
    Climate change, a pandemic or the coordinated activity of neurons in the brain: In all of these examples, a transition takes place at a certain point from the base state to a new state. Researchers have discovered a universal mathematical structure at these so-called tipping points. It creates the basis for a better understanding of the behavior of networked systems.
  • Thu, 06 May 2021 14:54:20 +0000: Open source tool can help identify gerrymandering in voting maps - Mathematics News -- ScienceDaily
    Researchers describe the improved mathematical methodology of an open source tool called Gerrychain, which can help observers detect gerrymandering in a voting district plan by creating an ensemble of alternate maps that also meet legal voting criteria.
  • Thu, 29 Apr 2021 16:33:51 +0000: Finding the optimal way to repay student debt - Mathematics News -- ScienceDaily
    Though legislative reform is necessary to combat the growing burden of student loan debt in the U.S. on a grand scale, individual borrowers can take steps to repay their loans with as low long-term costs as possible. A new mathematical model develops a strategy for minimizing the overall cost of repaying student loans.
  • Wed, 28 Apr 2021 17:55:34 +0000: New computer model helps brings the sun into the laboratory - Mathematics News -- ScienceDaily
    Every day, the sun ejects large amounts of a hot particle soup known as plasma toward Earth where it can disrupt telecommunications satellites and damage electrical grids. Now, scientists have made a discovery that could lead to better predictions of this space weather and help safeguard sensitive infrastructure.
