Usain Bolt's 200m record has not been beaten for ten years and Florence Griffith Joyner's for more than thirty years. And what about if the secret behind beating records was to use mathematics? Thanks to a mathematical model, researchers have proved that the geometry of athletic tracks could be optimized to improve records. They recommend to build shorter straights and larger radii in the future.<img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~r/sciencedaily/computers_math/mathematics/~4/SpRvYeP7JZk" height="1" width="1" alt=""/>Wed, 25 Mar 2020 12:08:37 EDThttps://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2020/03/200325120837.htmhttps://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2020/03/200325120837.htmNew mathematical model can more effectively track epidemics
http://feeds.sciencedaily.com/~r/sciencedaily/computers_math/mathematics/~3/2Orm9gVLPX4/200325110855.htm
As COVID-19 spreads worldwide, leaders are relying on mathematical models to make public health and economic decisions. A new model improves tracking of epidemics by accounting for mutations in diseases. Now, the researchers are working to apply their model to allow leaders to evaluate the effects of countermeasures to epidemics before they deploy them.<img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~r/sciencedaily/computers_math/mathematics/~4/2Orm9gVLPX4" height="1" width="1" alt=""/>Wed, 25 Mar 2020 11:08:55 EDThttps://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2020/03/200325110855.htmhttps://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2020/03/200325110855.htmMathematicians develop new theory to explain real-world randomness
http://feeds.sciencedaily.com/~r/sciencedaily/computers_math/mathematics/~3/MOvk_EavAWs/200318143658.htm
Brownian motion describes the random movement of particles in fluids, however, this revolutionary model only works when a fluid is static, or at equilibrium. In real-life, fluids often contain particles that move by themselves, which can cause stirring in the fluid, driving it away from equilibrium. Now researchers have presented a novel theory to explain observed particle movements in these dynamic environments.<img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~r/sciencedaily/computers_math/mathematics/~4/MOvk_EavAWs" height="1" width="1" alt=""/>Wed, 18 Mar 2020 14:36:58 EDThttps://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2020/03/200318143658.htmhttps://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2020/03/200318143658.htmInverse design software automates design process for optical, nanophotonic structures

How an electron behaves in an atom, or how it moves in a solid, can be predicted precisely with the equations of quantum mechanics. These theoretical calculations agree with the results from experiments. But complex quantum systems, which contain many electrons or elementary particles can currently not be described exactly. A team has now developed a simulation method, which enables quantum mechanical calculations up to around 10,000 times faster than previously possible.<img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~r/sciencedaily/computers_math/mathematics/~4/4TQWXJ1tLQY" height="1" width="1" alt=""/>Thu, 20 Feb 2020 13:04:46 ESThttps://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2020/02/200220130446.htmhttps://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2020/02/200220130446.htmNew mathematical model reveals how major groups arise in evolution
