http://feeds.sciencedaily.com/~r/sciencedaily/computers_math/mathematics/~3/sUkc355irhk/190115124456.htm
Researchers have developed a new mathematical tool, which can improve our understanding of what happens when cells lose their polarity (direction) in diseases such as cancer. The result is advancing our understanding of how the fertilized egg cell develops into a complete organism. Biological shapes, like individual organs or an entire body, can be reproduced or maintained with great accuracy, just like in the embryonic development or during the adult stage.<img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~r/sciencedaily/computers_math/mathematics/~4/sUkc355irhk" height="1" width="1" alt=""/>Tue, 15 Jan 2019 12:44:56 ESThttps://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2019/01/190115124456.htmhttps://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2019/01/190115124456.htmMultimaterial 3D printing used to develop fast response stiffness-tunable soft actuator

As with most crime, the highest rates of burglary occur in urban communities. However, existing mathematical models typically examine burglaries in residential, suburban environments. In a new article, researchers present a nonlinear model of urban burglary dynamics that accounts for the deterring effect of police presence and emphasizes timing of criminal activity.<img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~r/sciencedaily/computers_math/mathematics/~4/wYmPNArvc-c" height="1" width="1" alt=""/>Tue, 04 Dec 2018 10:25:32 ESThttps://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2018/12/181204102532.htmhttps://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2018/12/181204102532.htmMaking it easier to transform freeform 2D sketching into 3D Models

http://feeds.sciencedaily.com/~r/sciencedaily/computers_math/mathematics/~3/-UgRdBZ_Hlc/181119155946.htm
Caricature portrait drawing is a distinct art form where artists sketch a person's face in an exaggerated manner, most times to elicit humor. Automating this technique poses challenges due to the amount of intricate details and shapes involved and level of professional skills it takes to transform a person artistically from their real-life selves to a creatively exaggerated one.<img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~r/sciencedaily/computers_math/mathematics/~4/-UgRdBZ_Hlc" height="1" width="1" alt=""/>Mon, 19 Nov 2018 15:59:46 ESThttps://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2018/11/181119155946.htmhttps://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2018/11/181119155946.htmAndroid child's face strikingly expressive

Android faces must express greater emotion if robots are to interact with humans more effectively. Researchers tackled this challenge as they upgraded their android child head, named Affetto. They precisely examined Affetto's facial surface points and the precise balancing of different forces necessary to achieve more human-like motion. Through mechanical measurements and mathematical modeling, they were able to use their findings to greatly enhance Affetto's range of emotional expression.<img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~r/sciencedaily/computers_math/mathematics/~4/KrwirKCvjko" height="1" width="1" alt=""/>Thu, 15 Nov 2018 10:46:32 ESThttps://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2018/11/181115104632.htmhttps://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2018/11/181115104632.htmCodebreaker Turing's theory explains how shark scales are patterned

http://feeds.sciencedaily.com/~r/sciencedaily/computers_math/mathematics/~3/j8mvlLBiSkc/181017142140.htm
The architecture of each person's brain is unique, and differences may influence how quickly people can complete various cognitive tasks. But how neuroanatomy impacts performance is largely an open question. To learn more, scientists are developing a new tool -- computational models of the brain -- to simulate how the structure of the brain may impact brain activity and, ultimately, human behavior.<img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~r/sciencedaily/computers_math/mathematics/~4/j8mvlLBiSkc" height="1" width="1" alt=""/>Wed, 17 Oct 2018 14:21:40 EDThttps://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2018/10/181017142140.htmhttps://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2018/10/181017142140.htmWhy don't we understand statistics?

The first study of why people struggle to solve statistical problems reveals a preference for complicated rather than simpler, more intuitive solutions -- which often leads to failure in solving the problem altogether. The researchers suggest this is due to unfavorable methods of teaching statistics in schools and universities, and highlight the serious consequences when applied to professional settings like court cases.<img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~r/sciencedaily/computers_math/mathematics/~4/rNCGI_jm1GU" height="1" width="1" alt=""/>Fri, 12 Oct 2018 08:27:13 EDThttps://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2018/10/181012082713.htmhttps://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2018/10/181012082713.htmSongbird data yields new theory for learning sensorimotor skills
