For the first time, a team of mathematical physicists, call upon supersymmetry to explain the behavior of particles that have received a photon and are subjected to particular potential energies known as shape-invariant potentials.
- Tue, 19 Jun 2018 16:24:36 +0000: Approach can help English learners improve at math word problems - Mathematics News -- ScienceDaily
Education professors have shown that a comprehension-based strategy can help English learners improve their math word-problem solving abilities. The approach boosts reading comprehension and problem solving as well.
- Fri, 15 Jun 2018 13:48:18 +0000: Novel method for investigating pore geometry in rocks - Mathematics News -- ScienceDaily
In a fusion of mathematics and earth science, researchers have proposed a novel method for characterizing pore geometry in rock, based on persistence diagram analysis and a newly proposed parameter, the distance parameter H. The method represents heterogeneity and differences in rock type more effectively than the conventional method based on velocity distribution, without requiring costly numerical flow simulations, and the results are relatively stable with small changes in pore space.
