New computational methodology

A paper titled "Numerical infinities and infinitesimals: Methodology, applications, and repercussions on two Hilbert problems," published in EMS Surveys in Mathematical Sciences describes a recent computational methodology related to the separation of mathematical objects from numeral systems involved in their representation. It allows mathematicians...

Mathematician’s study of ‘swarmalators’ could direct future science

How does the Japanese tree frog figure into the latest work of noted mathematician Steven Strogatz? As it turns out, quite prominently. "We had read about these funny frogs that hop around and croak," said Strogatz, the Jacob Gould Schurman Professor of Applied Mathematics. "They...

Simple statistics can be good enough

Study of the mismatch between spatial environmental data and a commonly used statistical analysis suggests simpler statistics are sufficient in many cases. Environmental scientists and their statistician colleagues face a common dilemma: Do simpler statistical tests properly characterize a data set? And is it worth...
