Dr. Cristini and his collaborators describe how they applied their "Master Equations of Cancer" to pancreatic cancer. It's an application that will soon help oncologists use the mathematical model to develop treatment plans for all cancer patients.
In the past week, the Lakers gave up an average of 136 points in losses to New Orleans, the Clippers and Denver but beat Portland and Oklahoma City. The Lakers will probably be mathematically eliminated next week from a playoff spot, four weeks before the regular season ends.
Michelle Khine, Ph.D., will discuss Inventing Future Entrepreneurs, particularly the growing need to cultivate “homegrown” science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) student innovators. The lecture also features opening remarks from Marc Tarpenning, co-founder of Tesla Motors. Show More Summary
Even the mildest form of a traumatic brain injury, better known as a concussion, can deal permanent, irreparable damage. Now, an interdisciplinary team of researchers at the University of Pennsylvania is using mathematical modeling to...Show More Summary
In a significant advance for the growing field of synthetic biology, Rice University bioengineers have created a toolkit of genes and hardware that uses colored lights and engineered bacteria to bring both mathematical predictability and cut-and-paste simplicity to the world of genetic circuit design. read more
We are constantly being bombarded with debates about the best conference in the country, but this might be the first time anyone has attempted to mathematically rank the 50 U.S. states (and District of Columbia) by college basketball...Show More Summary
The quality of Wikipedia entries about mathematics is often quite good, but unfortunately the same cannot be said for their entries about physics. I happened to take a look today at the Wikipedia entry for Multiverse, which is an outrageously … Continue reading ?

While the New York Knicks are still mathematically capable of making the playoffs, the reality of the situation is that they need to have one eye on the offseason. Regardless of what happens in their remaining games, they aren't even...Show More Summary
Here’s a great lesson plan for high school students from the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics
If you?re not only a hotel geek but kinda a science geek too, you probably already know that March 14 is Pi Day (because the mathematical constant ?, or Pi, which is the ratio of a circle?s circumference to its diameter, is approximately...Show More Summary
A mathematical proof of existence of a stochastic process involving fractional exponents seemed out of question after some mathematicians claimed this cannot not exist. This observation is strongly linked to the current definition and may undergo revision if nature does not agree with it. Stochastic process are very easy to simulate on a computer. Very […]
Remember mathematics — the brainchild of Babylon? The star of many of mankind's most AMAZEBALLZ endeavors, like the Empire State Building and balancing your checkbook? Sure you do! Well, she's back and this time she's helping us fly for cheap!!! The folks over at Cheapair.com are using math to try and make the world better! They just [...]
(YouTube link) Vi Hart collaborated with mathematical artist Gwen Fisher, her sister Ruth at Sweets by Ruth, and software engineer Andrea Hawksley to make cookies. At least their stated purpose was to make cookies and forget about math, but that’s not the way the afternoon turned out. Read more about this video at Hart’s website. -via Boing Boing
Improving radiation therapies for cancer mathematically In a paper published in December in the SIAM Journal on Scientific Computing, authors Li-Tien Cheng, Bin Dong, Chunhua Men, Xun Jia, and Steve Jiang propose a method to optimize radiation therapy treatments in cancer patients. read more
