Mathematical Models for Fighting Zika Virus

By Carrie Manore, Mac Hyman

Among infectious diseases, mosquito-borne diseases are both ubiquitous and notoriously difficult to manage. Mathematical models that simulate the spread of mosquito-borne disease can help identify trends of where and how the infection will spread, determine the sensitivity of important epidemic qualities, and inform best practices for control.

Music Visualized by Nonlinear Time Series Analysis

By Miwa Fukino, Yoshito Hirata, Kazuyuki Aihara

Music frequently evokes an emotional response in the listener. However, previous research on the relation between music signal processing and physical properties is not always suitable for analyzing music's emotional effect. In this article, the authors propose a new method for emotional interpretation based on nonlinear time series analysis.
