  • Tue, 11 Aug 2020 16:01:47 +0000: Mathematical patterns developed by Alan Turing help researchers understand bird behavior - Mathematics News -- ScienceDaily
    Scientists have used mathematical modelling to understand why flocks of long-tailed tits segregate themselves into different parts of the landscape.
  • Mon, 10 Aug 2020 14:32:53 +0000: Math shows how brain stays stable amid internal noise and a widely varying world - Mathematics News -- ScienceDaily
    A new theoretical framework shows that many properties of neural connections help biological circuits produce consistent computations.
  • Mon, 10 Aug 2020 14:32:35 +0000: Grasshopper jumping on Bloch sphere finds new quantum insights - Mathematics News -- ScienceDaily
    New research has (pardon the pun) put a new spin on a mathematical analogy involving a jumping grasshopper and its ideal lawn shape. This work could help us understand the spin states of quantum-entangled particles.
  • Tue, 04 Aug 2020 15:15:20 +0000: Droplet spread from humans doesn't always follow airflow - Mathematics News -- ScienceDaily
    If aerosol transmission of COVID-19 is confirmed to be significant, we will need to reconsider guidelines on social distancing, ventilation systems and shared spaces. Researchers in the U.K. believe a better understanding of droplet behaviors and their different dispersion mechanisms is also needed. In a new article, the group presents a model that demarcates differently sized droplets. This has implications for understanding airborne diseases, because the dispersion tests revealed the absence of intermediate-sized droplets.
  • Mon, 03 Aug 2020 18:00:09 +0000: AI and single-cell genomics - Mathematics News -- ScienceDaily
    The study of cellular dynamics is crucial to understand how cells develop and how diseases progress. Scientist have now created 'scVelo' - a machine learning method and open source software to estimate the dynamics of gene activity in single cells. This allows biologists to robustly predict the future state of individual cells.
