Military deployments to austere environments -- whether humanitarian missions or combat operations -- involve extensive logistical planning, which is often complicated by unforeseen events. Researchers have now created a model aimed at helping military leaders better account for logistical risk and uncertainty during operational planning and execution.<img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~r/sciencedaily/computers_math/mathematics/~4/yYxVOkH4pVY" height="1" width="1" alt=""/>Wed, 17 Jul 2019 10:52:52 EDThttps://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2019/07/190717105252.htmhttps://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2019/07/190717105252.htmTake flight! Automating complex design of universal controller for hybrid drones
http://feeds.sciencedaily.com/~r/sciencedaily/computers_math/mathematics/~3/p4GGbpYxzmU/190716124833.htm
Hybrid unmanned aerial vehicles, or UAVs, are drones that combine the advantages of multi-copters and fixed-wing planes. These drones are equipped to vertically take off and land like multi-copters, yet also have the strong aerodynamic performance and energy-saving capabilities of traditional planes. As hybrid UAVs continue to evolve, however, controlling them remotely still remains a challenge.<img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~r/sciencedaily/computers_math/mathematics/~4/p4GGbpYxzmU" height="1" width="1" alt=""/>Tue, 16 Jul 2019 12:48:33 EDThttps://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2019/07/190716124833.htmhttps://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2019/07/190716124833.htm'The way you move': Body structure brings coordinated movement

http://feeds.sciencedaily.com/~r/sciencedaily/computers_math/mathematics/~3/8VcwxCZyFbs/190710103231.htm
Mathematics is seen as the pinnacle of abstract thinking. But are we capable of filtering out our knowledge about the world to prevent it from interfering with our calculations? Researchers have demonstrated that our ability to solve mathematical problems is influenced by non-mathematical knowledge, which results in mistakes. The findings indicate that high-level mathematicians can be duped by some aspects of their knowledge about the world and fail to solve primary school-level subtraction problems.<img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~r/sciencedaily/computers_math/mathematics/~4/8VcwxCZyFbs" height="1" width="1" alt=""/>Wed, 10 Jul 2019 10:32:31 EDThttps://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2019/07/190710103231.htmhttps://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2019/07/190710103231.htmMathematical modeling for translational research of new CRSD medication

Physics Professor Jesse Berezovsky contends that until now, much of the thinking about math and music has been a top-down approach, applying mathematical ideas to existing musical compositions as a way of understanding already existing music. He contends he's uncovering the 'emergent structures of musical harmony' inherent in the art, just as order comes from disorder in the physical world.

A new study uses mathematical modeling to explain how T cells, part of the body's key defenses against pathogens, expand to fight a new infection. The team found that the amount of T-cell expansion is related to the quantity of infectious material, or antigen, as well as the stickiness with which the T cell binds the antigen.<img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~r/sciencedaily/computers_math/mathematics/~4/35X2Ohy4yfY" height="1" width="1" alt=""/>Mon, 11 Mar 2019 15:27:47 EDThttps://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2019/03/190311152747.htmhttps://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2019/03/190311152747.htmMathematics of sea slug movement points to future robots

Mathematicians recently discovered a lot of new, powerful geometries involved in frilly surfaces.

Even though the sandpile model serves as the archetypical model to study self-organized criticality, questions about its characteristics are still open and remain an active field of research.
