Professor develops a way to animate the behaviour of viscous liquids with great accuracy

Professor Christopher Batty develops a way to animate viscous behaviour with stunning accuracy, something that has confounded computer-animation researchers.

Computer science researchers help answer an age-old medical science question

Researchers from the the David R. Cheriton School of Computer Science, have recently shed light on exactly why veins look blue.The question is much more complex than it seems, and researchers are tackling it by using computer models that simulate organic structures. This research will further non-invasive diagnostic testing.

Researchers use new mathematical model to study influence of social behavior on the spread of infectious diseases

Mathematics can help public health workers better understand and influence human behaviours that lead to the spread of infectious disease, according to a study from the University of Waterloo.
