MistakePaul Cox has dedicated his site to the listing of mathematical mistakes made over and over by advertisers, the media, reporters, politicians, activists, and in general many non-math people.
Aktuell wird über die Anwendung der Bayesschen Formel im Kampf gegen SPAM berichtet. Das hätte sich Thomas Bayes (1702 - 1761) nicht träumen lassen.


An Australian mathematician has thrown 15 years of accepted scientific practice out the window by discovering a design flaw in a key component of the Atomic Force Microscope. His finding will force a rethink into the design and use of an instrument that has become a cornerstone of scientific measurement and analysis.

Mathematical models have given physicists a new look at DNA's chemical counterpart, RNA. The models -- showing that RNA behaves differently depending on the temperature of its environment -- may help biologists better understand how life evolved on Earth.

Auch nützlich: Man gibt eine Zahl ein und der Inverse Symbolic Calculator sagt einen, aus welchen Kostanten sich dieser Wert ergeben haben könnte.

A recent article in Slate discusses the value of NASCAR racing as a tool to study Game Theory. You can view the original study at FirstMonday. [via Slashdot.org]

Large amounts of two- or three-dimensional images are generated in many fields including medicine, environmental control, meteorology, geology, and engineering. Often decisions have to be based on certain features in the image. To do this the quality of noisy images has to be improved and the features have to be identified. Examples are satellite images, tomographic images, magnetic resonance images (MRI), and ultrasonic images.
