Many of the toughest decisions faced by cancer patients involve knowing how to use numbers -- calculating risks, evaluating treatment options and figuring odds of medication side effects. But for patients who aren’t good at math, decision science research can offer evidence-based advice on how to assess numeric information and ask the right questions to make informed choices.<img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~r/sciencedaily/computers_math/mathematics/~4/F1QjPbflMeo" height="1" width="1" alt=""/>Mon, 20 Feb 2017 09:57:36 ESThttps://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2017/02/170220095736.htmhttps://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2017/02/170220095736.htmHow garbage patches form in world's oceans

http://feeds.sciencedaily.com/~r/sciencedaily/computers_math/mathematics/~3/VECn7uKojMA/170206130610.htm
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

http://feeds.sciencedaily.com/~r/sciencedaily/computers_math/mathematics/~3/-9Y_lYfIZtU/161020120722.htm
Many of the world's major problems are spawned not from monolithic blocks of self-interest, but from a vast array of single entities making highly individual choices: from lone wolf terrorists to corrupt officials, tax evaders, isolated hackers or even armies of botnets and packages of malware. Game theory needs to catch up, and new research by mathematicians has just found the way to do that by giving game theory calculations an enormous army of 'agents'.<img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~r/sciencedaily/computers_math/mathematics/~4/-9Y_lYfIZtU" height="1" width="1" alt=""/>Thu, 20 Oct 2016 12:07:22 EDThttps://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2016/10/161020120722.htmhttps://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2016/10/161020120722.htmStudy solves 50-year-old puzzle tied to enigmatic, lone wolf waves
