    A mathematical model helps explain the key role that one pigment cells plays in making sure that each stripe on a zebrafish ends up exactly where it belongs.
  • Mon, 13 Aug 2018 12:27:42 +0000: Toward a universal quantum computer - Mathematics News -- ScienceDaily
    Researchers have demonstrated holonomic quantum gates under zero-magnetic field at room temperature, which will enable the realization of fast and fault-tolerant universal quantum computers.
  • Thu, 09 Aug 2018 16:56:03 +0000: New study views cancer treatment as a game to find strategies that improve patient outcomes - Mathematics News -- ScienceDaily
    Game theory can be utilized to identify potential flaws in current cancer treatment approaches and suggest new strategies to improve outcomes in patients with metastatic cancer, according to a new article. The study challenges the decades old standard of treatment for metastatic cancers in which drugs are typically administered continuously at the maximum-tolerated dose (MTD) until the tumor progresses.
