What's behind a No. 1 ranking? Open-source LineUp software enables granular analysis of subjective ranking systems
Behind every "Top 100" list is a generous sprinkling of personal bias and subjective decisions. Lacking the tools to calculate how factors like median home prices and crime rates actually affect the "best ...

New theory points to 'zombie vortices' as key step in star formation
(Phys.org) —A new theory by fluid dynamics experts at the University of California, Berkeley, shows how "zombie vortices" help lead to the birth of a new star.
Removing complexity layers from the universe's creation
Complicated statistical behaviour observed in complex systems such as early universe can often be understood if it is broken down into simpler ones. Two physicists, Petr Jizba (currently affiliated with the Czech Technical ...
