The Pacific Journal of Mathematics for Industry (PJMI) publishes exciting research right at the interface of Mathematics and Industry. Articles focus on how through the use of mathematical results, important industrial problems can be answered to yield new insight for both industry and mathematics. A number of recent original research articles demonstrate some of the big challenges that research published in PJMI tackles.
In this post, Dr. Arturo Chiti, the Editor-in-Chief of our new SpringerOpen journal European Journal of Hybrid Imaging shares his thoughts on how hybrid imaging can be used to its full potential.
Shoebox sized satellites could be the key to fast-track development of space quantum communication.
A new analysis in the Journal of International Humanitarian Action looks closely at safe motherhood vouchers—and finds surprising results in wartime Yemen.
Prompted by previous research observing that engagement in science is strongly influenced by what happens outside school, researchers from Murdoch University wanted to find out what successful female students think influenced their engagement in high school physics. Physics is regarded as a high-status subject, although sometimes viewed as a “boy’s subject”. The picture that emerges around females’ enrollment choices in science, recently published in a paper on the International Journal of STEM Education, is multi-faceted.
The amount of carbon stored in marine sediments within national exclusive economic zones (EEZs) – areas of coastal water and seabed within a certain distance of a country’s coastline -, can be equal to or larger than carbon stored on land, new research by Silvania Avelar, Tessa van Voort and Timothy Eglinton published in Carbon Balance and Management shows.
A review recently published in Crime Science suggests that animal poaching and the illicit wildlife trade concentrate in a similar manner to more traditional crime categories. Further, authors propose that the field of conservation biology would be well-served by borrowing prevention strategies, approaches to modelling and interventions commonly utilised in crime science.
Importance of rheological heterogeneity for interpreting viscoelastic relaxation at a subduction earthquake
Guest post by Hisashi Suito Postseismic deformation is commonly observed following large earthquake. This postseismic deformation is thought to be caused by three mechanisms: afterslip, viscoelastic relaxation, and poroelastic rebound. Short-term deformation near the rupture zone is considered to be caused mainly by the afterslip or, at times, poroelastic rebound. It is commonly interpreted that… Read more »
