As the countdown continues to the Presidential election, new analytical tools by physicists at The City College of New York promise a quicker and remarkably accurate method of predicting election trends with Twitter.
Algorithms for labeling and segmenting data could reduce the time required for big-data analysis from months to days.
A Danish research team has developed a new method for studying how a tracer is distributed in a cancer tumor via its extensive vascular network. The method can be used for studying closely the effect of medical treatment using cancer inhibitors.
Researchers use computer simulations to explore selective killing of pathogens by lasers, made possible because of absorption differences in tissues and bacterial colonies
Game theory has long been used to apply mathematical models of conflict and cooperation between intelligent rational decision-makers. Our world of lone wolf terrorists to corrupt officials has evolved, and game theory has evolved with it, thanks to research by the University of Warwick.
A technique used to detect damage on structures under the sea was successfully repurposed to identify cancerous nuclei in breast cell images. Breast cancer is the most prevalent form of cancer for women worldwide, but current techniques for its automated detection are limited.
The social networks behind one of the most famous literary controversies of all time have been uncovered using modern networks science.
A new model is allowing scientists to explore how changing an individual's certainty in the belief on the truth of one statement leads to changes in their beliefs on the truth of others.
Mathematical analysis has led researchers in Japan to a formula that can describe the movement of DNA inside living human cells. Using these calculations, researchers may be able to reveal the 3-D architecture of the human genome. In the future, these results may allow scientists to understand in detail how DNA is organized and accessed by essential cellular machinery.
Many predators either hunt alone keeping the spoils to themselves or in packs sharing the bounty with others. Deciding whether to tell fellow predators about some tasty prey involves weighing up many pros and cons. In a new paper published in PLOS Computational Biology, researchers from Princeton University and the Stockholm Resilience Centre found a simple 'rule of thumb' that may help unravel this complex decision-making behavior.
