New mathematical proof helps to solve equations with random components

Mathematics - Jun 21

Researcher at the Cluster of Excellence Mathematics finds an approach that can be used flexibly. Whether it's physical phenomena, share prices or climate models - many dynamic processes in our world can be described mathematically with the aid of partial differential equations. Thanks to stochastics - an area of mathematics which deals with probabilities - this is even possible when randomness plays a role in these processes.

Unifying behavioral analysis through animal foundation models

Life Sciences

Behavioral analysis can provide a lot of information about the health status or motivations of a living being. A new technology developed at EPFL makes it possible for a single deep learning model to detect animal motion across many species and environments. This -foundational model-, called SuperAnimal, can be used for animal conservation, biomedicine, and neuroscience research.

How a Biocatalyst Might Boost the Growth of Microalgae

Life Sciences

A sensor for nitrogen could be hidden behind the extension of an enzyme for the breakdown of starch. If this sensor detects a high level of nitrogen, algal growth switches into turbo mode.

The ’15-minute city’ might not be realistic for North America, researchers find

McGill study suggests a '30-minute city' is more attainable, though would still require urban design changes In the "15-minute city," a concept popularized in Europe, everything a resident might need on a daily basis is a short walk or bicycle ride away.

No black holes from light

For the last seven decades, astrophysicists have theorized the existence of "kugelblitze," black holes caused by extremely high concentrations of light.
