To understand ecosystems, ultimately will be to understand networks. – B. C. Patten and M. Witkamp A while back I decided one way to apply my math skills to help save the planet was to start pushing toward green mathematics: a kind of mathematics that can interact with biology and ecology just as fruitfully as […]

Here’s an interesting conference for those of you who like networks and biology: • Kinetic networks: from topology to design, Santa Fe Institute, 17–19 September, 2015. Organized by Yoav Kallus, Pablo Damasceno, and Sidney Redner. Proteins, self-assembled materials, virus capsids, and self-replicating biomolecules go through a variety of states on the way to or in […]

guest post by Tobias Fritz In Part 1 and Part 2, we learnt about ordered commutative monoids and how they formalize theories of resource convertibility and combinability. In this post, I would like to say a bit about the applications that have been explored so far. First, the study of resource theories has become a […]

guest post by Tobias Fritz In Part 1, I introduced ordered commutative monoids as a mathematical formalization of resources and their convertibility. Today I’m going to say something about what to do with this formalization. Let’s start with a quick recap! Definition: An ordered commutative monoid is a set equipped with a binary relation a […]

guest post by Tobias Fritz Hi! I am Tobias Fritz, a mathematician at the Perimeter Institute for Theoretical Physics in Waterloo, Canada. I like to work on all sorts of mathematical structures which pop up in probability theory, information theory, and other sorts of applied math. Today I would like to tell you about my […]
