redOrbit Staff & Wire Reports - Your Universe Online Researchers from MIT and Georgia Tech have adapted techniques that ensure airplanes won´t stall out during flight to prove that computer programs will not divide by zero. Specifically, the researchers demonstrated how to apply principles from control theory, which analyzes dynamical systems ranging from robots to power grids, to something known as “formal verification,” a set of methods for mathematically proving...

As they typically result from severe external perturbations, it is of vital interest how stable the most desirable state is. Surprisingly, this basic question has so far received little attention. Now scientists of the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research (PIK), in a paper published in Nature Physics, propose a new concept for quantifying stability. "Up to now, science was able to say if a complex system is stable or not, but it wasn't able to properly say how stable it is," says...

Top-heavy structures are more likely to maintain their balance while hovering in the air than are those that bear a lower center of gravity, researchers at New York University's Courant Institute of Mathematical Sciences and Department of Physics have found. Their findings, which appear in the journal Physical Review Letters, are counter to common perceptions that flight stability can be achieved only through a relatively even distribution of weight–and may offer new design principles...
