  • Thu, 18 Jan 2018 15:08:02 +0000: A centuries-old math equation used to solve a modern-day genetics challenge - Mathematics News -- ScienceDaily
    Researchers developed a new mathematical tool to validate and improve methods used by medical professionals to interpret results from clinical genetic tests.
  • Tue, 16 Jan 2018 16:10:54 +0000: The Fields Medal fallacy: Why this math prize should return to its roots - Mathematics News -- ScienceDaily
    The Fields Medal, whose origins date back to the 1930s, will be issued again this year in August to up to four of the world's most accomplished mathematicians under the age of 40. Experts now propose that the Fields Medal return to its roots as a tool intended to shape the future of mathematics, rather than recognizing those who have already found the spotlight.
  • Tue, 16 Jan 2018 13:50:00 +0000: Math can predict how cancer cells evolve - Mathematics News -- ScienceDaily

  • Fri, 05 Jan 2018 18:52:55 +0000: Batman's Gotham City provides test case for community resilience model - Mathematics News -- ScienceDaily
    If a community is resilient, it can withstand and recover from an unanticipated disaster, like an earthquake, fire or flood. But since every disaster and every community is unique, a uniform measure for defining 'resilience' has been hard to come by for engineers and social scientists. A new study offers an innovative approach to defining resilience that could help communities better prepare for hazards.
