Mathematics and science Braille textbooks are expensive and require an enormous effort to produce -- until now. A team of researchers has developed a method for easily creating textbooks in Braille, with an initial focus on math textbooks. The new process is made possible by a new authoring system which serves as a 'universal translator' for textbook formats. Based on this new method, the production of Braille textbooks will become easy, inexpensive, and widespread.<img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~r/sciencedaily/computers_math/mathematics/~4/jcbxSa22JL4" height="1" width="1" alt=""/>Thu, 16 Jan 2020 08:04:17 ESThttps://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2020/01/200116080417.htmhttps://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2020/01/200116080417.htmMathematicians put famous Battle of Britain 'what if' scenarios to the test

Scientific literature abounds with examples of ways in which member diversity can benefit a group -- whether spider colonies' ability to forage or an industrial company's financial performance. Now, a newly published mathematical framework substantiates the seemingly counterintuitive observations made by prior scholars: interaction among dissimilar individuals can speed consensus.<img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~r/sciencedaily/computers_math/mathematics/~4/b8Fl7E_3gGA" height="1" width="1" alt=""/>Wed, 08 Jan 2020 13:17:33 ESThttps://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2020/01/200108131733.htmhttps://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2020/01/200108131733.htmIndeterminist physics for an open world
http://feeds.sciencedaily.com/~r/sciencedaily/computers_math/mathematics/~3/_3EIS7FwqRo/200107104921.htm
Classical physics is characterized by the equations describing the world. Yet our day-to-day experience is struck by this deterministic vision of the world. A physicist has been analyzing the classical mathematical language used in modern physics. He has thrown light on a contradiction between the equations that explained the phenomena and the finite world. He suggests making changes to the mathematical language to allow randomness and indeterminism to become part of classical physics.<img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~r/sciencedaily/computers_math/mathematics/~4/_3EIS7FwqRo" height="1" width="1" alt=""/>Tue, 07 Jan 2020 10:49:21 ESThttps://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2020/01/200107104921.htmhttps://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2020/01/200107104921.htmA new method for boosting the learning of mathematics
http://feeds.sciencedaily.com/~r/sciencedaily/computers_math/mathematics/~3/EUawzbx_Zt4/191223122824.htm
How can mathematics learning in primary school be facilitated? Scientists have developed an intervention to promote the learning of math in school. Named ACE-ArithmEcole, the program is designed to help schoolchildren surpass their intuitions and rely instead on the use of arithmetic principles. More than half (50.5%) of the students who took part in the intervention were able to solve difficult problems, as compared to 29.8% for pupils who followed the standard course of study.<img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~r/sciencedaily/computers_math/mathematics/~4/EUawzbx_Zt4" height="1" width="1" alt=""/>Mon, 23 Dec 2019 12:28:24 ESThttps://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2019/12/191223122824.htmhttps://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2019/12/191223122824.htmFireballs: mail from space

It takes a tremendous amount of computer simulations to create a device like an MRI scanner that can image your brain by detecting electromagnetic waves propagating through tissue. The tricky part is figuring outÂ how electromagnetic waves will react when they come in contact with the materials in the device.

Spider webs are one of nature's most fascinating manifestations. Many spiders extrude proteinaceous silk to weave sticky webs that ensnare unsuspecting prey who venture into their threads. Despite their elasticity, these webs possess incredible tensile strength.

http://feeds.sciencedaily.com/~r/sciencedaily/computers_math/mathematics/~3/Msc8PnOrVbY/191211145704.htm
Turbulence is one of the least understood phenomena of the physical world. Long considered too hard to understand and predict mathematically, turbulence is the reason the Navier-Stokes equations, which describe how fluids flow, are so hard to solve that there is a million-dollar reward for anyone who can prove them mathematically. But now, mathematicians have broken through the barrier and developed the first rigorous mathematical proof for a fundamental law of turbulence.<img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~r/sciencedaily/computers_math/mathematics/~4/Msc8PnOrVbY" height="1" width="1" alt=""/>Wed, 11 Dec 2019 14:57:04 ESThttps://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2019/12/191211145704.htmhttps://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2019/12/191211145704.htmWater animation gets easier

Impaired information processing may prevent cells from perceiving their environment correctly; they then start acting in an uncontrolled way and this can lead to the development of cancer. To better understand how impaired information transmission influences the activity of diseased cells, researchers are going beyond the field of biology.

In two studies, researchers found that the key to success in personal finances and dealing with a complex disease was a match between a person's math abilities and how comfortable and assured he or she felt using those skills.<img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~r/sciencedaily/computers_math/mathematics/~4/QRW5GlWve5E" height="1" width="1" alt=""/>Mon, 09 Sep 2019 15:42:11 EDThttps://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2019/09/190909154211.htmhttps://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2019/09/190909154211.htmThe ever-winning lottery ticket: Mathematicians solve a dusty mystery
