Does it take longer to recover from jet lag when flying east? Math says yes.
Scientists use mathematical modeling to simulate human mesenchymal stem cell delivery to a damaged heart and found that using one sub-set of these stem cells minimizes the risks associated with this therapy. The study represents a development in novel strategies to repair and regenerate heart muscle and could improve stem cell treatments for heart attack patients.

A team of researchers based in Israel and the US has found a mathematical resemblance between swarm dynamics and gravitational interactions. The study could provide a big leap forward in understanding the mass movement of flying insects.
Scientists have mathematically modeled the coevolutionary processes that describe how antibodies and viruses interact and adapt to one another over the course of a chronic infection, such as HIV/AIDS.
AsapSCIENCE dusts off a basic mathematical equation to demonstrate how making your pizza buying decisions based on its quoted size is a big mistake. Basically, the price per square inch is dramatically better on larger pies.
Physicists have discovered that the timing of electronic orders on the stock market can be mathematically described in the same way as the lifetime of a light bulb.
University of Adelaide physicists have discovered that the timing of electronic orders on the stock market can be mathematically described in the same way as the lifetime of a light bulb. The surprising finding is a "crucial first step" towards predicting dramatic movements on stock exchanges that could lead to stock market crashes. read more

There is a scene in Toni Morrison’s novel “Song of Solomon” in which a character named Guitar explains to the protagonist Milkman that violence inflicted without repercussion is not a matter of morality, but mathematics. The tide of black death at the hands of white people, he reasons, sets the world at an imperfect ratio. He then explains the corrective.
Researchers produced a mathematical model of certain brain cells to help explain why travel’s toll on fliers feels more severe in one direction than the other.
LOGAN, UTAH, USA - By developing an innovative series of mathematical equations, Utah State University ecologists are shedding light on a stalemate that's vexed population biologists' understanding of why some organisms adapt and flourish, while others decline. read more
(Phys.org)—How do you arrange a group of points on the surface of a sphere so that all the points are as far apart from each other as possible? With two points, the answer is easy: place them on opposite sides of the sphere, as if they are endpoints of the diameter. Show More Summary
You may remember that earlier this year, LEGO Ideas member Ludovic Piraud (a.k.a. “aBetterMonkey”) created a LEGO set based on Adventure Time. It turns out that the set was actually approved to become an official product,…
