"Moments of true insight make all the apparently fruitless hours worthwhile": Münster mathematicians Dr. Franziska Jahnke and Dr. Mira Schedensack talk about their work
Hours of contemplation, approaching a solution in small steps, and a healthy scepticism towards computer-generated results. In these guest articles, two mathematicians at the University of Münster, Dr. Franziska Jahnke und Dr. Mira Schedensack , explain what mathematical research means to them and what the aim of this research is.

Design tool reveals a product's many possible performance tradeoffs
Design tool reveals a product’s many possible performance tradeoffs
Users can quickly visualize designs that optimize multiple parameters at once. MIT researchers have developed a tool that makes it much easier and more efficient to explore the many compromises that come with designing new products. Designing any product - from complex car parts down to workaday objects such as wrenches and lamp stands - is a balancing act with conflicting performance tradeoffs.

New Model Shows Where to Improve Power Grids
The big question Energy generation from renewable, but fluctuating, resources like solar and wind can add stress to the grid infrastructure, and in particular on specific links within it that can fail and cause brownouts. But how can we know where these vulnerable links are before that happens? The new discovery Researchers from Caltech and Centrum Wiskunde & Informatica national research center in Amsterdam created a mathematical framework that helps to predict where power line failures will occur.

Engineers build smart power outlet
Have you ever plugged in a vacuum cleaner, only to have it turn off without warning before the job is done? Or perhaps your desk lamp works fine, until you turn on the air conditioner that's plugged into the same power strip. These interruptions are likely "nuisance trips," in which a detector installed behind the wall trips an outlet's electrical circuit when it senses something that could be an arc-fault - a potentially dangerous spark in the electric line.
