But now, a team at the Polytechnic Institute of New York University (NYU-Poly) has demonstrated a new method for such experiments that promises to yield large amounts of data quickly and consistently, thereby potentially reducing the number of live animals needed in research. The secret? Robotic fish.

It's universal in hardware design and in the development of critical control software that can't tolerate bugs; it's common in academic research; and it's beginning to make inroads in commercial software.

The ergodic theorem expresses a fundamental physical principle, and its validity for diffusive processes has now been demonstrated.

Other SciencesFri, 22 Oct 2010 11:08:05 EDTnews206964469New Law of Physics Could Explain Quantum Mysteries(PhysOrg.com) -- Since the early days of quantum mechanics, scientists have been trying to understand the many strange implications of the theory: superpositions, wave-particle duality, and the observerâ€™s role in measurements, to name a few. Now, a new proposed law of physics that describes the geometry of physical reality on the cosmological scale might help answer some of these questions. Plus, the new law could give some clues about the role of gravity in quantum physics, possibly pointing the way to a unified theory of physics.
