Princeton honoring memory of mathematician John Nash

Five months after his remarkable life ended in a crash on a New Jersey highway, Princeton University is paying tribute to John Nash, the Nobel Prize-winning mathematician remembered by colleagues for his brilliance and by ...

Ants' movements hide mathematical patterns

When ants go exploring in search of food they end up choosing collective routes that fit statistical distributions of probability. This has been demonstrated by a team of mathematicians after analysing the trails of a species ...

Optimized application of high intensity focused ultrasound

The field of nonlinear acoustics is currently receiving a lot of attention, thanks to applications focused on the improvement of ultrasonic cleaning, ultrasonic welding, sonochemistry, or thermotherapy. Lithotripsy – the ...

Heat distributions help researchers to understand curved space

The heat equation is one of the most important partial differential equations. The behavior of the solution to the equation reflects the geometry of the underlying space very well. Therefore, this equation has been investigated ...

The brain could be key to a better computer

Your brain is incredibly well-suited to handling whatever comes along, plus it's tough and operates on little energy. Those attributes—dealing with real-world situations, resiliency and energy efficiency—are precisely ...
