How Genetic Variation Gives Rise to Differences in Mathematical Ability

DNA variation in a gene called ROBO1 is associated with early anatomical differences in a brain region that plays a key role in quantity representation, potentially explaining how genetic variability ...

Divide and Conquer :A New Formula to Minimize 'Mathemaphobia'

Maths - it's the subject some kids love to hate, yet despite its lack of popularity, mathematics is critical for a STEM-capable workforce and vital for current and future productivity. New research ...

'Universal Law of Touch' Will Enable New Advances in Virtual Reality

Seismic waves, commonly associated with earthquakes, have been used by scientists to develop a universal scaling law for the sense of touch. A team used Rayleigh waves to create the first scaling law ...

Using Math to Examine the Sex Differences in Dinosaurs

When you only have fossils to go off of, it's hard to tell which dinosaur traits, like size and ornamentation, are related to the animals' sex, and which traits are related to other things ...

Thermodynamics of Computation: A Quest to Find the Cost of Running a Turing Machine

Turing machines are widely believed to be universal, in the sense that any computation done by any system can also be done by a Turing machine. In a new article, researchers present their work ...

U.S. Political Parties Become Extremist to Get More Votes

New mathematical modeling shows that U.S. political parties are becoming increasingly polarized due to their quest for voters -- not because voters themselves are becoming more ...

Grasshopper Jumping on Bloch Sphere Finds New Quantum Insights

New research has (pardon the pun) put a new spin on a mathematical analogy involving a jumping grasshopper and its ideal lawn shape. This work could help us understand the spin states of ...

Droplet Spread from Humans Doesn't Always Follow Airflow

If aerosol transmission of COVID-19 is confirmed to be significant, we will need to reconsider guidelines on social distancing, ventilation systems and shared spaces. Researchers in the U.K. believe ...

AI and Single-Cell Genomics

The study of cellular dynamics is crucial to understand how cells develop and how diseases progress. Scientist have now created 'scVelo' - a machine learning method and open source software ...

Healing an Achilles' Heel of Quantum Entanglement
