While studying the chemical reactions that occur in the flow of gases around a vehicle moving at hypersonic speeds, researchers at the University of Illinois used a less-is-more method to gain greater understanding of the role of chemical reactions in modifying unsteady flows that occur in the hypersonic flow around a double-wedge shape.
Future high-speed communication networks based on millimeter-wave (30-300GHz) technology will be more robust and efficient in delivering extremely high speed, high quality video, and multimedia content and services thanks to the results of a ground-breaking research project. The recently concluded project was a collaboration between Huawei Technologies and IMDEA Networks Institute, the Madrid-based research body pioneering many technologies that are being deployed in the new 5G landscape.
Giovanna Guidoboni, Marjorie Skubic and a team at the University of Missouri are currently working to develop a standardized model to interpret the results of a ballistocardiogram that could provide an additional approach for early detection of various cardiovascular diseases.
An international team of researchers, led by UMass Amherst biostatistician Leontine Alkema and her former Ph.D. student Fengqing Chao, developed a new estimation method for assessing natural variations in the sex ratio at birth (SRB) for all countries in the world.
Rice University biological physicists took inspiration from the mighty blacksmith to refine their computational models of how proteins fold. These models will help structural biologists who design drugs and other therapies.
Understanding economies in times of crises? Modern macroeconomics failed so far. Researchers from the Complexity Science Hub Vienna are now proposing a novel method that makes the effects of shocks on out-of-equilibrium economies computable for the first time.
There's been a rapid resurgence of interest in understanding the energy cost of computing. Recent advances in this 'thermodynamics of computation' are summarized in a new review published in the Journal of Physics A.
Dubbed the 'honeypot effect' -- a team of scientists from around Australia have shown that providing woody habitat, or 'snags,' for native fish in the Murray River increases their population size.
Data produced by Internet users can help to speed up the detection of earthquakes. An international team of scientists has presented a method to combine in real time data from seismic networks with information derived from users looking for earthquake information on specific websites, the smartphone app 'LastQuake' and via Twitter. This method significantly reduces the time needed to detect and locate those earthquakes that are felt by the public.
Researchers from the Kelley School of Business at Indiana University and at Goizueta Business School at Emory University published new research in the INFORMS journal Marketing Science which reveals that advertisers can see a boost in online shopping when television viewers multitask and engage in social media activity while watching certain programs.
