### Using Mathematical Modeling to Show that Cell Turnover Impacts Drug Resistance that Determines Adaptive Therapy Success The development of medication resistance and subsequent disease progression is one of the most difficult concerns in cancer therapy. Moffitt Cancer Center researchers, in collaboration with Oxford University, report findings from a study using mathematical modeling to show that cell turnover infl.....

### Boost Your Brainpower and Everyday Problem-Solving Skills with this Math Training Mathematics is a discipline that provides answers to some of the world’s most difficult and perplexing topics. What methods were used to construct the pyramids? How fast does light travel? How did the Moon landing happen? The power of mathematics has been used to solve mind-bending conundru.....

### How to Mathematically Prove the Existence of God (or Not) OK, so perhaps the existence of an omnipotent altruistic creator (or otherwise) that transcends mortal understanding is not something that can be mathematically proven. But that doesn’t mean people haven’t tried. In the modern computer age, from the 17st century mathematician Blaise P.....

### Queuing Theory Queuing theory is a branch of mathematics that studies the different dynamics of lines or “queues,” as well as how they can be made to function more efficiently. The theory analyzes each segment of holding up in line, including the appearance cycle, administration measure, number of workers, .....

### Bar Graph (Definition, Types) A bar chart, also known as a bar graph, is a chart that plots data using rectangular bars or columns (called bins) that represent the total number of observations in a group. Rectangular bars with heights or lengths proportional to the values they represent are used to display categorical data. B.....

### Dependent Variable (DV) The dependent variable (DV) is just like the sound of the name; it depends on some factor regulated by the investigator. This name is given to dependent variables because their values are studied in an experiment under the presumption or the hypothesis that they depend on the values of other vari.....

### Ordinary Differential Equation (ODE) An ordinary differential equation (ODE) is an equation involving some ordinary derivatives of a function (as opposed to partial derivatives). In comparison to the term partial differential equation that might be in relation to more than one independent variable, the term ordinary is used. An equa.....

### Differential Equation A mathematical statement is a differential equation; it is an equation that relates one or more functions and their derivatives. In science and engineering, as well as in many other fields of quantitative analysis, differential equations are very common because their rates of change are what can ..... About Deductive Reasoning Deductive reasoning relies on a general statement or hypothesis (sometimes called a premise or standard) held to be true to reach a specific, logical conclusion. It is sometimes referred to as top-down logic. Its counterpart, inductive reasoning, is sometimes referred to..... About Boolean Algebra Boolean algebra is a type of mathematical operation that, unlike regular algebra, works with binary digits (bits): 0 and 1. While 1 represents true, 0 represents false. Instead of elementary algebra where the values of the variables are numbers, and the prime operations are ..... About Abductive Reasoning Abductive reasoning is to abduce (or take away) a logical assumption, explanation, inference, conclusion, hypothesis, or best guess from an observation or set of observations. Because the conclusion is merely a best guess, the conclusion that is drawn may or may not be t.....
