Jan. 21, 2013 — A team of researchers from the Universitat Politècnica de València and specialists from the Hospital Universitari i Politècnic La Fe have developed a new tool, a mathematical model to be exact, to help in the selection of embryos for transfer in fertility treatments.

The model is especially useful for transfers of intermediate quality embryos on the second day after fertilization, when it is possible to estimate the probability of implantation in the uterus. The study was published recently in the journal Mathematical and Computer Modelling.

According to the researchers, in order to evaluate the...

New report: The reach and impact of mathematical sciences

  • PDF
Jan. 10, 2013 — The Mathematical Sciences in 2025, a new report from the National Research Council, finds that the mathematical sciences are an increasingly integral component of many disciplines -- including biology, medicine, the social sciences, business, advanced design, and climate studies.

However, the expanding role of the mathematical sciences over the past 15 years has not been matched by a comparable increase in federal funding, and the number of federal agencies that...
