CES 2014: Barobo robots teach children algebra

submitted by: nsf

At the Consumer Electronics Show, CES 14, Barobo, Inc. showed the NSF their robot that helps teach children algebra in a completely new way. By taking algebra off the page and into the physical world, Barobo aims to inspire a new generation of mathematicians.

Science Nation - Music and Creativity

submitted by: nsf
Georgia Tech's Parag Chordia believes music is a universal part of human culture, and his research shows music education can inspire greater interest in math, physics, and computer science. Chordia heads Georgia Tech's "Music Intelligence Group." With support from the National Science foundation, his goals are to program computers to understand music the way humans do naturally - anticipating what is coming next. He's also studying changes in the brains of professional musicians as they play...

This video presents the DIRICOM Research Project. One of the goals inside this Project is to design a wireless system network that allows the communication among cars (the so-called Vehicular Ad-hoc Network or VANETs). For more information, please visit: DIRICOM web site

The Standard Model Architecture and Interactions Part 2 The Fermion Interaction

submitted by: cloudmichael
The Standard Model Architecture and Interactions Part 2 © 2011 Claude Michael Cassano The Fermion Interaction: An interaction with entry ingredients A,B and exit ingredients C,D is denoted as you see, here: A+B → C+D which implies it's anti-equivalent. A fermion interaction is an interaction between first and second order objects, i.e.: between solitary S sub R matrices. The initial step in a fermion interaction...

The Standard Model Architecture and Interactions Part 1

submitted by: cloudmichael
The Standard Model Architecture and Interactions © 2011 Claude Michael Cassano Based on my 1984 linearization of the Klein-Gordon equations, potential functions generalizations of the electric and magnetic field strengths form a basis from which a compound model simply constructs the leptons; the simple differences between the quarks and leptons; how the quarks arose from the leptons; why there are these two types of fermions; and why there are precisely three generations for each...

A Particular Solutions Inhomogeneous 2nd Order ODE Formula

submitted by: cloudmichael
A Particular Solutions Formula For Inhomogeneous Second Order Linear Ordinary Differential Equations © 2011 Claude Michael Cassano Finding a particular solutions to a linear inhomogeneous ordinary differential equation has always been a process of determining homogeneous solutions, and then adding any particular solution of the inhomogeneous equation. The well-known methods of undetermined coefficients and variation of parameters have long been the standard in determining...

A Helmholtzian operator and electromagnetic-nuclear field

submitted by: cloudmichael
A Helmholtzian operator is a linear second order partial differential operator, typically in four independant variables; a generalization of the d'Alembertian operator where it's additional constant vanishes. When the time-independant version (in three independent (space) variables acting on a function or vector vanishes, the resulting equation is called the Helmholtz's equation. In four dimensions this equation is referred to as the Klein-Gordon equation (with imaginary constant) . The...

Statistical Analysis and Data Mining

Presented by John Elder, Elder Research, Inc. and the University of Virginia, Charlottesville, USA. John Elder and Elsevier Publishers are delighted to present this short video, extracted from training material produced by Elder Research, Inc. In this video, John introduces some of the mistakes to avoid during the data mining process. This video will be of interest to business intelligence organisations and financial analysts, but also to anyone needing to extract information from large...

Kaleidoscope Project

submitted by: Doorbell Productions

A proposal for an interactive process that integrates myth and science regarding water-culture awareness. If science and myth are reconciled, we believe that synthesis can occur within communities in ways that enable collaboration, trust building, and local water policy change, especially where common pool resources are a concern.
