Anita Layton (Professor of Applied Mathematics, Pharmacy, and Biology) received $100,000 in funding through the Canada Foundation for Innovation (CFI) John R. Evans Leaders Fund (JELF). The award will fund infrastructure needed to support Layton's Canada 150 Research Chair research program, and to establish the Virtual Physiological Human Laboratory.
Researchers at the University of Waterloo have developed a way to better harness the volume of energy collected by solar panels.
In a new study, the researchers developed an algorithm that increases the efficiency of the solar photovoltaic (PV) system and reduces the volume of power currently being wasted due to a lack of effective controls.
Researchers have, for the first time, identified the conditions for theories of quantum gravity to be compatible with one of the paramount predictions of quantum theory and relativity: The Unruh effect.
A Google Faculty Research Award propels quantum machine learning forward.
The Physics of Information lab, led by Professor Achim Kempf, was awarded one of the 2018 Google Faculty Research Awards. Kempf’s lab focuses on the physics of information, a wide research field that ranges from general relativity and quantum theory to information theory and artificial intelligence (AI).
Frosty Friday was particularly sweet for four Applied Math graduate students on July 12. Farinaz Forouzannia, Christian Barna, and Giselle Sosa Jones received Outstanding Teaching Assistant Awards. PhD student Yinan Li received the 2018/2019 Best Research Paper Award for the paper “Invariance Control Synthesis for Switched Nonlinear Systems: An Interval Analysis Approach” published in IEEE Transactions on Automatic Control. Congratulations!
Imagine if we had a technology that made the diagnostic process for autism less stressful for children. Imagine if we combined it with existing manual methods so that it could help doctors better avoid a false positive autism diagnosis.
