Yale researchers have found a data-driven way to detect distant planets and refine the search for worlds similar to Earth.
Many South Africans were outraged by the recent announcement that for 2016, pupils in Grades 7 to 9 could progress to the next grade with only 20% in Mathematics.
Scientists at Tomsk State University (Russia) have created a universal mathematical approach to queuing theory. It allows calculating the most efficient operation of the systems in which the processing of incoming flow takes ...
Water striders spend all their life on the surface of water, and the secrets of their ability to "skate" on the water surface have been discovered more than a decade ago. It is only recently that scientists began to study ...
The fact that many young women do not pursue a career in the 'STEM' fields of science, technology, engineering and mathematics may have its roots in gender stereotypes. These not only magnify uncertainty and doubts in young ...
Learning between human social groups may be key to sustaining the environment, according to a new study that uses mathematical modeling to understand what factors most influence societies to conserve natural resources.
Inspired by the way people move at heavy metal concerts, an international team of researchers from Uppsala University and Harvard University have learned how to spot danger zones in mass gatherings before disaster strikes.
EU-funded mathematicians under the HDSPCONTR project have developed a series of algorithms and mathematical models that can predict and influence the behaviour of social groups.
Researchers have found a mathematical structure that was thought not to exist. The best possible q-analogs of codes may be useful in more efficient data transmission.
Physicists avoid highly mathematical work despite being trained in advanced mathematics, new research suggests.
