Game of go: A complex network
Could computers ever beat the best go players? Although unthinkable at this stage, this could soon become possible, thanks to CNRS theorists. For the first time, two scientists from the Theoretical Physics ...

Mathematicians at the University of York in the UK and the University of Canterbury in New Zealand say they have disproved a widely accepted theory underpinning the operation of complex networks of interactions in the natural ...
(Phys.org)—Curtis Cooper, professor of math and computer science at the University of Central Missouri, has discovered the largest prime number to date, it's 257,885,161 – 1. It has 17 million digits and is also a Mersenne prime (a prime number defined by the equation N=2n-1, ...
A new mathematical theory from the University is challenging one of the most basic ideas of biology – that the concept of a 'species' applies to all creatures.
Models from theoretical physics, which are normally used to plot the motion of particles, are beginning to shed light upon the mass migration of living organisms as well. These include swarms of locusts, which ...
U.S. engineers have created the first computational model to track engine performance from one combustion cycle to the next for a new type of engine.
A grant from a new virtual institute dedicated to exploring questions about the foundations of physics and the origin of the universe will help a Kansas State University mathematician with his research on gravity, black holes ...
(PhysOrg.com) -- The first century BC in Italy was culturally a brilliant age, unequaled by any other period in Roman history. It was a time of Cicero, Caesar, Vergil, Horace and many other major literary ...
Most of us learned what a prime number is in our early days of math class: An integer divisible only by itself and by one. But what you may not have realized is the search for the rarest of them is an international ...
Many researchers have tried to create a mathematical model of how cells pack together to form tissue, but most models have many different complicated factors, and no model is universal.
The New York Yankees have better than a 3 in 4 chance of defeating the Detroit Tigers in their best of 5 series beginning tonight, said Bruce Bukiet, PhD, associate professor in the department of mathematical sciences at ...
Mathematician Andrew Hicks was in his Drexel University office, puzzling over some problem he can no longer recall, when colleague Ron Perline walked in with a challenge. Fresh from his morning bicycle ride, Perline was unhappy ...
A straight line may be the shortest distance between two points, but it isn’t necessarily the fastest or easiest path to follow.
Timely, accurate prediction or control of complex phenomena – such as predicating the path of a hurricane or controlling a jet -- is the goal of Serkan Gugercin’s National Science Foundation Faculty Early Career Development ...
(PhysOrg.com) -- Networks permeate modern life, from Facebook to political allegiances. Now University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill mathematicians and colleagues have developed a new technique for examining ...
