When brain cells don’t get enough energy, caused by a stroke or trauma, they can start swelling rapidly. New mathematical models of this mechanism show a critical tipping point: at lower energy levels, there is no way back.<img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~r/sciencedaily/computers_math/mathematics/~4/rjzLyeAKcQI" height="1" width="1" alt=""/>Thu, 23 Mar 2017 12:59:49 EDThttps://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2017/03/170323125949.htmhttps://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2017/03/170323125949.htmA new model for capillary rise in nano-channels offers insights into improved hydraulic fracturing (fracking)
http://feeds.sciencedaily.com/~r/sciencedaily/computers_math/mathematics/~3/SQB6uUaXVKs/170321124037.htm
With fracking, scientists have calculated the expected level of capillary rise with the Lucas-Washburn equation, a mathematical model whose earliest parameters were first devised nearly a century ago. The challenge, however, is that that the equation has not been completely accurate in predicting the actual rise observed in nano-capillary laboratory experiments.<img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~r/sciencedaily/computers_math/mathematics/~4/SQB6uUaXVKs" height="1" width="1" alt=""/>Tue, 21 Mar 2017 12:40:37 EDThttps://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2017/03/170321124037.htmhttps://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2017/03/170321124037.htmNumerosity in humans, birds and fish based in brain's subcortex

Unavoidably, each digital information we send around the globe is prone to be lost. Travelling long ways in wires, the initial signal decays and scatters by colliding with impurities and neighboring electromagnetic fields. Therefore, beyond each bit of your desired message, it is necessary to send other hidden bits of information that check for mistakes and take action in case of losses; while devices become smaller and smaller, this issue becomes more significant. Scientists are aiming to find innovative ways at achieving a more stable transmission of information.<img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~r/sciencedaily/computers_math/mathematics/~4/VECn7uKojMA" height="1" width="1" alt=""/>Mon, 06 Feb 2017 13:06:10 ESThttps://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2017/02/170206130610.htmhttps://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2017/02/170206130610.htmCholera bacteria stab and poison enemies at predictable rates

Early math knowledge is as important as early literacy for children's subsequent achievement. In fact, research has shown that early math skills predict later school success better than early reading skills, and can even predict income in adulthood. Now a new longitudinal study has found that young children whose mothers supported them during play, specifically in their labeling of object quantities, had better math achievement at ages 4-½ and 5 years.<img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~r/sciencedaily/computers_math/mathematics/~4/uFbmlCMl2s4" height="1" width="1" alt=""/>Tue, 22 Nov 2016 19:30:26 ESThttps://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2016/11/161122193026.htmhttps://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2016/11/161122193026.htmThe mathematics of coffee extraction: Searching for the ideal brew
