Mathematics in everyday life

Coverage of our work in SIAM News

Advertisements

The last two issues of SIAM News both have an article that describes some collaborative efforts with different colleagues. Eric Shea-Brown writes about our joint effort to relate the patterns of connections between the neurons in the brain to their joint dynamics, and ultimately function. Dana Mackenzie gives a nice overview of interactions between mathematicians and synthetic biologists. This includes a description of some joint work with Will Ott (UH) and Matt Bennett (Rice). Unfortunately, the second article does not mention the two postdocs who did most of the work: Faiza Hussain (Rice) who did the majority of the experimental work, and Chinmaya Gupta (UH) who did most of the modeling. The press release from UH is here.
