Lack of math education negatively affects adolescent brain and cognitive development
Adolescents who stopped studying math showed a reduction in a critical brain chemical for brain development. This reduction in brain chemical was found in a key brain area that supports math, memory, learning, reasoning and problem solving. more...
Applying mathematics takes 'friendship paradox' beyond averages
In network science, the famous 'friendship paradox' describes why your friends are (on average) more popular, richer, and more attractive than you are. But a slightly more nuanced picture emerges when we apply mathematics to real-world data. more...
Early warning system for COVID-19 gets faster through wastewater detection and tracing
A new research paper builds on previous research of COVID-19 testing in municipal sewer systems and subsequent tracing the virus back to the source by more accurately modelling a system's treelike network of one-way pipes and manholes, and by speeding up the detection/tracing process through automatic sensors installed in specific manholes, chosen according to an easier-to-use algorithm. more...
Turbulence in interstellar gas clouds reveals multi-fractal structures
Astronomers describe the complex structure of the interstellar medium using a new mathematical method. The dispersion of interstellar turbulence in gas clouds before star formation unfolds in a cosmically small space. more...
Candy-like models used to make STEM accessible to visually impaired students
A breakthrough study aims to make science more accessible to people who are blind or visually impaired through small, candy-like models. more...
Mathematical model developed to prevent botulism
Food producers can use a mathematical model to ensure their products do not cause botulism. more...
Spacetime crystals proposed by placing space and time on an equal footing
A scientist studying crystal structures has developed a new mathematical formula that may solve a decades-old problem in understanding spacetime, the fabric of the universe proposed in Einstein's theories of relativity. more...
