Meet the rubber ducks the most important troubleshooters of our developers. The basis of all coding is a mathematical model from which a developer thinks it represents his task. But what if his beautifully created code doesnt do what the model predicted? What if the developer twists changes and re-arranges it and the result is still rubbish? Well he takes his duck and explains the problem in natural language. Its a surprise each time - but with this translation he usually understands what is…
Amid rising concerns over the effects of global warming, a group of scientists has claimed that the Earth could in a little over a decade be hit by a "mini ice age" that would freeze major rivers. The startling prediction is based on a mathematical model of the Sun's magnetic energy which also suggests that Earth's temperature will start dropping in 2021.
Brothers Lav Varshney with the University of Illinois, and Kush, with IBM's Thomas J. Watson Research Center have together come up with a way to create odor canceling smells, akin to white noise for sound.
Mathematical Model Shows How the Brain Remains Stable During Learning - Researchers have devised a new mathematical model which helps explain how the brain's networks can learn new information while remaining stable. Credit Nicolas P.
String Theory Infographic: String theory is an active research framework in particle physics that attempts to reconcile quantum mechanics and general relativity. It is a contender for a theory of everything (TOE), a self-contained mathematical model that
Game theory is a branch of mathematics that looks at how groups solve complex problems. The Schrödinger equation is the foundational equation of quantum mechanics - the area of physics focused on the smallest particles in the Universe.
Finding the right mate is no cakewalk -- but is it even mathematically likely? In a charming talk, mathematician Hannah Fry shows patterns in how we look for love, and gives her top three tips (verified by math!) for finding that special someone.
