Advances in mathematical description of motion
Complex mathematical investigation of problems relevant to classical and quantum mechanics by EU-funded researchers has led to insight regarding instabilities of dynamic systems. This is important for descriptions ...
Individual typing style gives key to user authentication
Your typing style is as individual as your fingerprints. Being able to use typing style to identify a change in users could be a vital security and forensic support for organisations such as banks, the military ...
Scientists find slow subsidence of Earth's crust beneath the Mississippi delta
The Earth's crust beneath the Mississippi Delta sinks at a much slower rate than what had been assumed.
ORNL completes first phase of Titan supercomputer transition
Oak Ridge National Laboratory's Jaguar supercomputer has completed the first phase of an upgrade that will keep it among the most powerful scientific computing systems in the world.
Innovation promises expanded roles for microsensors
Researchers have learned how to improve the performance of sensors that use tiny vibrating microcantilevers to detect chemical and biological agents for applications from national security to food processing.
Glowing beacons reveal hidden order in dynamical systems
A dynamical system in which repeated measurements on a single particle yield the same mean result as a single measurement of the whole ensemble is said to be ergodic. The ergodic theorem expresses a fundamental physical principle, ...
Physicists propose solution to constraint satisfaction problems
(PhysOrg.com) -- Maria Ercsey-Ravasz, a postdoctoral associate and Zoltan Toroczkai, professor of physics at the University of Notre Dame, have proposed an alternative approach to solving difficult constraint ...
Catching molecular motion at just the right time
University of Oregon researchers have devised a mathematically rich analytic approach to account for often-missing thermodynamic and molecular parameters in molecular dynamic simulations.
The self-made eye: Formation of optic cup from ES cells
Groundbreaking research from the RIKEN Center for Developmental Biology (CDB) shows how mouse stem cells spontaneously form into optic cups, the precursors of eyes. A report on this research, published this week in Nature, sheds ...
Dealing with the unexpected
To regain balance from an unexpected slip on the ice can require an abundance of rapid movement, but conscious thought isn't part of the equation.
The holy grail of human resources: New selection tool to revolutionize hiring
Just about everyone has a story about being trapped in the wrong job, flip-flopping careers in search of one that fits, or just wasting time with the guidance counsellor.
