(University of Houston) A team of researchers in the University of Houston College of Natural Sciences and Mathematics is analyzing a few small fragments of the Tissint meteorite with the help of a $349,520, three-year grant from the NASA Solar System Workings program.
There will be a "double conference" on higher algebra, simultaneously at the Perimeter Institute in Waterloo and the Max Planck Institute in Bonn.
(Kavli Institute for the Physics and Mathematics of the Universe) An amateur astronomer testing his new camera captures the moment a supernova became visible in the night sky, which has helped an international team of researchers to test their theory about the beginning stages of a stellar explosion.
As part of its 10th birthday celebrations, the National Museum of Computing at Bletchley Park in the UK set eight computing machines spanning 80 years against each other in a race to find numbers in a mathematical sequence. An old WITCH...Show More Summary
Seven months after Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull told ZDNet the laws of Australia will trump the laws of mathematics, Minister for Home Affairs Peter Dutton has discussed looming legislation that would force companies to help the government access communications.
(Mathematical Association of America) The 78th annual Putnam Mathematical Competition, organized by the Mathematical Association of America, recognized the Massachusetts Institute of Technology as the top team and five undergraduate students were named Putnam Fellows for their high scores on the rigorous six-hour mathematics exam.
(Universitat Rovira i Virgili) This is the finding of a European study started in 2016 and involving Agustí Solanas, head of the Smart Health research group at the URV's Department of Computer Engineering and Mathematics, and researchers from the University of Piraeus (Greece) headed by Constantinos Patsakis.
(Rutgers University) Improvements in traffic flow and fuel consumption are boosted when even a few autonomous vehicles are immersed in bulk traffic, according to research by Rutgers University-Camden mathematics scholar Benedetto Piccoli.

(Helmholtz Centre for Environmental Research - UFZ) Scientists at the UFZ have adapted a method from physics to mathematically describe the fragmentation of tropical forests. In the scientific journal Nature, they explain how this allows to model and understand the fragmentation of forests on a global scale. Show More Summary
Countries with greater gender equality see a smaller proportion of women taking degrees in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM), a new study has found. Policymakers could use the findings to reconsider initiatives to increase women's participation in STEM, say the researchers.
Everton 3 – Crystal Palace 1 It may not be mathematically certain, but Everton took a big step towards confirming their Premier League survival last weekend. Facing relegation strugglers Crystal Palace at Goodison Park, Everton notched a 3-1 home win. That was the perfect tonic after the 5-1 thrashing to Arsenal. Crystal Palace held their […]
archiemcphee: Cats + Mathematics = the Furbonacci sequence The Fibonacci sequence is found in many places in nature, including the branching of trees, leaves on a stem, the flowering of an artichoke, or an uncurling fern. But what if...Show More Summary
One thing the Norwegian Olympic team will not be running short on in PyeongChang: a supply of protein. Chefs for the athletic delegation from the Arctic Circle nation had a mathematical snafu when placing an order for the next few weeks while in South Korea for the Winter Games. The result: instead of getting 1,500…
This is one chapter in a series on Mathematical Quantum Field Theory The previous chapter is: 15. Interacting quantum fields. 16. Renormalization In this chapter we discuss the following topics: Epstein-Glaser renormalization Stückelberg-Petermann...Show More Summary
Recent advances in digital factory science make it possible to print more compliant objects across a wider range of length-scales than conventional engineering processes. A bottleneck for enabling the next technological progress resides in filling the gap in the comprehension of the unprecedented degree of complexity dominating this novel technology.
He helped lay the mathematical foundation for the startling idea that our universe is not alone.
