A new parallel strategy for tackling turbulence on Summit
A team developed an algorithm for simulating turbulence on Summit, the world's most powerful and smartest supercomputer. The team distributed the problem in such a way that the algorithm reached a performance of less than 15 seconds of wall-clock time per time step for more than 6 trillion grid points--a new world record surpassing the prior state of the art in the field for the size of the problem. more...
Brains of girls and boys are similar, producing equal math ability
New research comprehensively examined the brain development of young boys and girls. Their research shows no gender difference in brain function or math ability. more...
Could mathematics help to better treat cancer?
Impaired information processing may prevent cells from perceiving their environment correctly; they then start acting in an uncontrolled way and this can lead to the development of cancer. To better understand how impaired information transmission influences the activity of diseased cells, researchers are going beyond the field of biology. They propose to examine cellular communication in the light of information theory, a mathematical theory more commonly used in computer science. more...
Mathematics reveals new insights into Marangoni flows
Scientists have discovered new mathematical laws governing the properties of Marangoni flows. The new theory better matches experimental observations of the well-known effect. more...
Determining the shapes of atomic clusters
Researchers propose a new method of identifying the morphologies of atomic clusters. They have confirmed that the distinctive geometric shapes of some clusters, as well as the irregularity of amorphous structures, can be fully identified mathematically. more...
Novel method turns any 3D object into a cubic style
Computer scientists have developed a computational method to quantify an abstract cubic style. Additionally, their method also enables users to create new shapes that resemble the input shape and exhibit the cubic style. more...
Mathematical modeling vital to tackling disease outbreaks
Predicting and controlling disease outbreaks would be easier and more reliable with the wider application of mathematical modelling, according to a new study. more...
