  • Thu, 13 Jul 2017 19:49:06 +0000: Decision-making rules least susceptible to manipulation, according to science - Mathematics News -- ScienceDaily
    Computer modelling has been used to demonstrate the varying manipulability of decision-making procedures and to identify those least susceptible to manipulation.
  • Tue, 11 Jul 2017 15:24:28 +0000: Making telescopes that curve and twist - Mathematics News -- ScienceDaily
    A new tool for computational design allows users to turn any 3-D shape into a collapsible telescoping structure. New mathematical methods capture the complex and diverse properties of such structures, which are valuable for a variety of applications in 3-D fabrication and robotics -- particularly where mechanisms must be compact in size and easily deployable.
  • Thu, 06 Jul 2017 15:32:15 +0000: Into the quantum world with a tennis racket - Mathematics News -- ScienceDaily
    Quantum technology is seen as an important future-oriented technology: smaller, faster and with higher performance than conventional electronics. However, exploiting quantum effects is difficult because nature's smallest building blocks have properties quite distinct from those we know from our everyday world. An international team of researchers has now succeeded in extracting a fault tolerant manipulation of quanta from an effect of classical mechanics.
  • Tue, 27 Jun 2017 18:20:32 +0000: Using mathematical methods to study complex biological networks - Mathematics News -- ScienceDaily
    Complex biological processes, such as the metabolism, often involve thousands of different compounds coupled by chemical reactions. These process chains are described by researchers as chemical reaction networks. Researchers have developed new mathematical methods to study the energetic properties of these networks.
  • Fri, 23 Jun 2017 17:15:17 +0000: Algorithm generates optimal origami folding patterns for any shape - Mathematics News -- ScienceDaily
    A new algorithm generates practical paper-folding patterns to produce any 3-D structure.
