University of Oregon theorists overcome loss of entropy and friction in computational simulations University of Oregon researchers have devised a mathematically rich analytic approach to account for often-missing thermodynamic and molecular parameters in molecular dynamic simulations. The new approach, which returns atomistic-level data into the time frame of the macroscopic world, is detailed in a paper appearing online ahead of regular publication in the journal Physical Review E. The...

A more human approach to processing raw data could change the way that computers deal with information, according to academics at The University of Nottingham. Researchers in the School of Computer Science at the University's Malaysia Campus are exploring "Ëœgranular computing' "” a computer paradigm that looks at groups or sets of information, called information granules, rather than the high level of detail at which data is currently processed. By looking at data in this...
