  • Fri, 29 May 2020 23:07:34 +0000: Scientists develop method to help epidemiologists map spread of COVID-19 - Mathematics News -- ScienceDaily
    Scientists have developed a method they believe will help epidemiologists more efficiently predict the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic. Their new study outlines a solution to the SIR epidemic model, which is commonly used to predict how many people are susceptible to, infected by, and recovered from viral epidemics.
  • Fri, 29 May 2020 19:06:30 +0000: Limits on evolution revealed by statistical physics - Mathematics News -- ScienceDaily
    What is and is not possible for natural evolution may be explained using models and calculations from theoretical physics, say researchers. To explain this the limits of evolution, researchers simplified the natural world to fit idealized physics models and searched for any mathematical structure within biological complexity.
  • Fri, 29 May 2020 19:06:17 +0000: Solution to century-old math problem could predict transmission of infectious diseases - Mathematics News -- ScienceDaily
    An academic has achieved a milestone in statistical/mathematical physics by solving a 100-year-old physics problem -- the discrete diffusion equation in finite space.
  • Fri, 29 May 2020 19:06:05 +0000: New model predicts the peaks of the COVID-19 pandemic - Mathematics News -- ScienceDaily
    Researchers describe a single function that accurately describes all existing available data on active COVID-19 cases and deaths -- and predicts forthcoming peaks.
  • Thu, 28 May 2020 15:57:57 +0000: Topology sheds new light on synchronization in higher-order networks - Mathematics News -- ScienceDaily
    Research proposes a novel 'higher-order' Kuramoto model that combines topology with dynamical systems and characterizes synchronization in higher-order networks for the first time.
