Mathematicians prove the Hardy-Littlewood-Sobolev inequalities

RUDN University mathematicians have proven the Hardy-Littlewood-Sobolev (HLS) inequalities for the class of generalized Riesz potentials. These results extend the scope of these potentials in mathematics and physics because ...

Mathematicians' work helps change how people vote

As U.S. courts debate gerrymandering—the process of carving up electoral districts to disproportionately benefit one political party—Wes Pegden's work is helping to shape redistricting maps more fairly.

Surviving a zombie apocalypse using mathematics

Researchers at the University of Sheffield have explained how to survive a zombie apocalypse this Halloween using maths, in a new outreach project designed to highlight the importance of vaccinations.

Removing human bias from predictive modeling

Predictive modeling is supposed to be neutral, a way to help remove personal prejudices from decision-making. But the algorithms are packed with the same biases that are built into the real-world data used to create them. ...

Where to park your car, according to math

Just as mathematics reveals the motions of the stars and the rhythms of nature, it can also shed light on the more mundane decisions of everyday life. Where to park your car, for example, is the subject of a new look at a ...
