Researchers develop first mathematical proof for key law of turbulence in fluid mechanics

University of Maryland, College Park

What if engineers could design a better jet with mathematical equations that drastically reduce the need for experimental testing? Or what if weather prediction models could predict details in the movement of heat from the ocean into a hurricane?

Has physics ever been deterministic?

University of Vienna

Researchers from the Austrian Academy of Sciences, the University of Vienna and the University of Geneva, have proposed a new interpretation of classical physics without real numbers. This new study challenges the traditional view of classical physics as deterministic.In classical physics it is usually assumed that if we know where an object is and its velocity, we can exactly predict where it will go.

Can 3D-Printing Musical Instruments Produce Better Sound Than Traditional Instruments?

Acoustical Society of America (ASA)

Music is an art, but it is also a science involving vibrating reeds and strings, sound waves and resonances. The study of acoustics can help scientists produce beautiful music even with musical instruments fashioned with high-tech methods, such as 3D printing. Researchers studied the sound quality of a 3D-printed ukulele and compared it to a standard wooden instrument, and will present the group’s results at the 178th ASA Meeting.

This ‘Fix’ for Economic Theory Changes Everything From Gambles to Inequality to Ponzi Schemes

Santa Fe Institute

Whether we decide to take out that insurance policy, buy Bitcoin, or switch jobs, many economic decisions boil down to a fundamental gamble about how to maximize our wealth over time. How we understand these decisions is the subject of a new perspective piece in Nature Physics that aims to correct a foundational mistake in economic theory.

From Firearms to Fish -- Following Patterns to Discover Causality

American Institute of Physics (AIP)

Mathematicians have successfully applied a new, pictorial approach to answer complex questions that puzzle analysts, such as, do media stories on firearm legislation influence gun sales? Cause-and-effect queries like this pop up in various fields, from finance to neuroscience, and objective methods are needed to deliver reliable answers.

Rutgers Conference Will Celebrate 30th Anniversary of Leading Math and Computer Science Center

Rutgers University-New Brunswick

The Center for Discrete Mathematics and Theoretical Computer Science (DIMACS) at Rutgers University–New Brunswick will celebrate its 30th anniversary at a conference on Nov. 21 and 22. At the time of its founding, the DIMACS grant award from the National Science Foundation (NSF) was the largest award Rutgers had ever received. Gov. Thomas H. Kean was there for the opening of the center, and Gov. Phil Murphy will be there to celebrate the center’s three decades of excellence.
