New research explains how the shapes of neurons can be classified using mathematical methods from the field of algebraic topology. Neuroscientists can now start building a formal catalogue for all the types of cells in the brain. Onto this catalogue of cells, they can systematically map the function and role in disease of each type of neuron in the brain.<img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~r/sciencedaily/computers_math/mathematics/~4/p0UFnMn7lrQ" height="1" width="1" alt=""/>Thu, 21 Mar 2019 13:04:15 EDThttps://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2019/03/190321130415.htmhttps://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2019/03/190321130415.htmOrigins and nature of 'math anxiety'

A report out today examines the factors that influence 'math anxiety' among primary and secondary school students, showing that teachers and parents may inadvertently play a role in a child's development of the condition, and that girls tend to be more affected than boys.<img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~r/sciencedaily/computers_math/mathematics/~4/wXoRF8VI3go" height="1" width="1" alt=""/>Thu, 14 Mar 2019 07:57:58 EDThttps://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2019/03/190314075758.htmhttps://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2019/03/190314075758.htmProbability of catastrophic geomagnetic storm lower than estimated

According to a group of mathematics researchers, the probability in the following decade of the sun causing a storm strong enough to affect electrical and communication infrastructures around the globe 'only' reaches 1.9 percent maximum. Nevertheless, the event would produce severe consequences and governments should be prepared, researchers warn.<img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~r/sciencedaily/computers_math/mathematics/~4/nO5RjVas6Mg" height="1" width="1" alt=""/>Tue, 12 Mar 2019 10:37:17 EDThttps://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2019/03/190312103717.htmhttps://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2019/03/190312103717.htmFor infection-fighting cells, a guideline for expanding the troops

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. They developed the mathematics to describe these surfaces -- inflected nonsmooth surfaces, which change the direction in which they bend -- and the combination of new geometry insights and age-old slugs might just be the right combination for a new generation of flexible, energy-efficient soft-bodied robots.<img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~r/sciencedaily/computers_math/mathematics/~4/szBi5Sut-Xg" height="1" width="1" alt=""/>Thu, 07 Mar 2019 16:19:19 ESThttps://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2019/03/190307161919.htmhttps://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2019/03/190307161919.htmMathematical rules underlie the ancient art of knitting

Knitting may be an ancient manufacturing method, but one researcher believes that understanding how different stitch types determine shape and mechanical strength will be invaluable for designing materials for future technologies, and a more detailed understanding of the knitting 'code' could benefit manufacturers around the world.

Quasiparticles that behave like massless fermions, known as Weyl fermions, have been in recent years at the center of a string of exciting findings in condensed matter physics.

http://feeds.sciencedaily.com/~r/sciencedaily/computers_math/mathematics/~3/oRUrAkW68yY/190208115322.htm
The so-called Abelian sandpile model has been studied by scientists for more than 30 years. 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. Researchers have now discovered a new property of this mathematical model: they managed to induce dynamics in the self-similar fractal patterns reminiscent of sand dunes in the desert.<img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~r/sciencedaily/computers_math/mathematics/~4/oRUrAkW68yY" height="1" width="1" alt=""/>Fri, 08 Feb 2019 11:53:22 ESThttps://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2019/02/190208115322.htmhttps://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2019/02/190208115322.htmPositive thinking during pregnancy may help children's ability in math and science

Researchers looked to nature for inspiration in designing more effective wireless sensor networks.

A new mathematical tool shows that altering one of two asymmetries in the properties of single cells controls how they organize into folded, biological shapes, and explains how these shapes are precisely reproduced and maintained.<img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~r/sciencedaily/computers_math/mathematics/~4/6nBzKCmar54" height="1" width="1" alt=""/>Tue, 27 Nov 2018 11:09:53 ESThttps://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2018/11/181127110953.htmhttps://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2018/11/181127110953.htmLet's draw!: New deep learning technique for realistic caricature art
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

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.
