COVID calculations spur solution to old problem in computer science
A mathematician was keen to forecast the evolution of the COVID epidemic. Instead, he ended up solving a problem which had troubled computer scientists for decades. more...
Modelling the collective movement of bacteria
A new paper presents a mathematical model for the motion of bacteria that includes cell division and death, the basic ingredients of the cell cycle. more...
A peculiar protected structure links Viking knots with quantum vortices
Mathematical analysis identifies a vortex structure that is impervious to decay. more...
Revealing the complex magnetization reversal mechanism with topological data analysis
The reliability of data storage and writing speed in advanced magnetic devices depend on drastic, complex changes in microscopic magnetic domain structures. However, it is extremely challenging to quantify these changes, limiting our understanding of magnetic phenomena. To tackle this, researchers developed, using machine learning and topology, an analysis method that quantifies the complexity of the magnetic domain structures, revealing hidden features of magnetization reversal that are hardly seen by human eyes. more...
Finding simplicity within complexity
With the theory that for every action, even those seemingly complex and random, there is a math problem that describes it, a researcher is publishing a new formula that helps find that equation quickly. Yes, he's speeding up science. more...
Math approach may make drug discovery more effective, efficient
Researchers have devised a computer-based platform for drug discovery that could make the process more effective, more efficient and less costly. more...
Using math to better treat cancer
Researchers have identified a new method for scheduling radiation therapy that could be as much as 22 percent more effective at killing cancer cells than current standard radiation treatment regimens. more...
