This video introduces a new computer simulation exploring the connection between two of the most elusive phenomena in the universe, black holes and dark matter. In the visualization, dark matter particles are gray spheres attached to shaded trails representing their motion. Redder trails indicate particles more strongly affected by the black hole's gravitation and closer to its event horizon (blac...

The team from Uppsala University and University College Dublin measured hysteresis of the velocity of an active swarm in computer simulations and experiments on unicellular algae Euglena gracilis. The phototactic Euglena cells were driven by variable illumination and tracked using microscopy. CREDIT Maksym Romensky

Ever since Hurricane Ike devastated Texas in 2008, researchers at the Institute for Computational Engineering and Sciences at the University of Texas at Austin have been studying computational models and simulations of hurricanes like Ike in order to predict the effects of future storms and better prepare the coastal regions of Texas, such as the Galveston Bay region, for its effects. Environmenta...

VIDEO: Researchers led by Pieter Dorrestein, PhD, at the University of California, San Diego Skaggs School of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences used information collected from hundreds of skin swabs to produce three-dimensional maps of molecular and microbial variations across the body. These maps provide a baseline for future studies of the interplay between the molecules that make up our skin...

Prof. Ben Hermalin's economic analysis of the net neutrality debate considers the impact of price discrimination and download limits. He discusses his work, co-authored by Prof. Nicholas Economides, Berkeley-Haas visiting professor, and concludes that relaxing net neutrality is a bad idea. http://haas.berkeley.edu/
