Using data from all 50 U.S. states plus the District of Columbia, two mathematicians have developed a new method to analyze COVD-19 rates to help policymakers identify demonstrable turning points in infection surges.<img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~r/sciencedaily/computers_math/mathematics/~4/BarZQKRDmUU" height="1" width="1" alt=""/>Tue, 22 Sep 2020 11:23:12 EDThttps://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2020/09/200922112312.htmhttps://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2020/09/200922112312.htmEcologists confirm Alan Turing's theory for Australian fairy circles
http://feeds.sciencedaily.com/~r/sciencedaily/computers_math/mathematics/~3/lrm8SNxRk3Y/200922102429.htm
Fairy circles are one of nature's greatest enigmas and most visually stunning phenomena. Researchers have now collected detailed data to show that Alan Turing's model explains the striking vegetation patterns of the Australian fairy circles. In addition, the researchers showed that the grasses that make up these patterns act as ''eco-engineers'' to modify their hostile and arid environment, keeping the ecosystem functioning.<img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~r/sciencedaily/computers_math/mathematics/~4/lrm8SNxRk3Y" height="1" width="1" alt=""/>Tue, 22 Sep 2020 10:24:29 EDThttps://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2020/09/200922102429.htmhttps://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2020/09/200922102429.htmOnline training helps preemies

In the 2019 Boeing 737 Max crash, the recovered black box from the aftermath hinted that a failed pressure sensor may have caused the ill-fated aircraft to nose dive. This incident and others have fueled a larger debate on sensor selection, number and placement to prevent the reoccurrence of such tragedies. Researchers have now developed a comprehensive mathematical framework that can help engineers make informed decisions about which sensors to use.<img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~r/sciencedaily/computers_math/mathematics/~4/yiCHWeT4DwQ" height="1" width="1" alt=""/>Thu, 17 Sep 2020 18:04:07 EDThttps://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2020/09/200917180407.htmhttps://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2020/09/200917180407.htmMathematical modelling to prevent fistulas

Solar cells have come a long way, but inexpensive, thin film solar cells are still far behind more expensive, crystalline solar cells in efficiency. Now, a team of researchers suggests that using two thin films of different materials may be the way to go to create affordable, thin film cells with about 34% efficiency.<img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~r/sciencedaily/computers_math/mathematics/~4/t6SBicB2eDI" height="1" width="1" alt=""/>Tue, 15 Sep 2020 19:42:50 EDThttps://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2020/09/200915194250.htmhttps://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2020/09/200915194250.htmVirtual tourism could offer new opportunities for travel industry, travelers

A researcher developed a mathematical method that shows climate change likely caused the rise and fall of an ancient civilization.

When you only have fossils to go off of, it's hard to tell which dinosaur traits, like size and ornamentation, are related to the animals' sex, and which traits are related to other things like age.

http://feeds.sciencedaily.com/~r/sciencedaily/computers_math/mathematics/~3/KljAML4d79A/200826175641.htm
Turing machines are widely believed to be universal, in the sense that any computation done by any system can also be done by a Turing machine.

Researchers in the U.K. believe a better understanding of droplet behaviors and their different dispersion mechanisms is also needed. In a new article, the group presents a model that demarcates differently sized droplets.

Extensive power outages and satellite blackouts that affect air travel and the internet are some of the potential consequences of massive solar storms. These storms are believed to be caused by the release of enormous amounts of stored magnetic energy due to changes in the magnetic field of the sun's outer atmosphere - something that until now has eluded scientists' direct measurement.

Researchers have developed an AI tool that can turn blurry faces into eerily convincing computer-generated portraits, in finer detail than ever before. Previous methods can scale an image to eight times its original resolution. But a team has come up with a way to take a handful of pixels and create realistic-looking faces with up to 64 times the resolution, 'imagining' features such as eyelashes and stubble that weren't there in the first place.<img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~r/sciencedaily/computers_math/mathematics/~4/15hiqP9bT3k" height="1" width="1" alt=""/>Fri, 12 Jun 2020 11:14:09 EDThttps://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2020/06/200612111409.htmhttps://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2020/06/200612111409.htmNew tool automatically turns math into pictures
