Finding the optimal way to repay student debt
Though legislative reform is necessary to combat the growing burden of student loan debt in the U.S. on a grand scale, individual borrowers can take steps to repay their loans with as low long-term costs as possible. A new mathematical model develops a strategy for minimizing the overall cost of repaying student loans. more...
New computer model helps brings the sun into the laboratory
Every day, the sun ejects large amounts of a hot particle soup known as plasma toward Earth where it can disrupt telecommunications satellites and damage electrical grids. Now, scientists have made a discovery that could lead to better predictions of this space weather and help safeguard sensitive infrastructure. more...
Simple robots, smart algorithms
Inspired by a theoretical model of particles moving around on a chessboard, new robot swarm research shows that, as magnetic interactions increase, dispersed 'dumb robots' can abruptly gather in large, compact clusters to accomplish complex tasks. Researchers report that these 'BOBbots' (behaving, organizing, buzzing bots) are also capable of collectively clearing debris that is too heavy for one alone to move, thanks to a robust algorithm. more...
Designing healthy diets with computer analysis
A new mathematical model for the interaction of bacteria in the gut could help design new probiotics and specially tailored diets to prevent diseases. more...
Research breakthrough in understanding how neural systems process and store information
Scientists have made a breakthrough in the quest to better understand how neural systems are able to process and store information. more...
Auxin makes the spirals in gerbera inflorescences follow the Fibonacci sequence
The meristem of the gerbera is patterned on the molecular level already at a stage where no primordia or other changes are discernible by even an electron microscope. more...
Machine learning can help slow down future pandemics
Artificial intelligence could be one of the keys for limiting the spread of infection in future pandemics. In a new study, researchers have investigated how machine learning can be used to find effective testing methods during epidemic outbreaks, thereby helping to better control the outbreaks. more...
