Math and Running

So you want to run your first race and, of course, you want to win.  We all know we're supposed to eat right, train well and practice, practice, practice!  But would you believe that one of the things you're missing is math?

In a recent paper published in the SIAM Journal on Applied Mathematics, a pair of mathematicians from France proposed a system of ordinary differential equations which coupled the unknowns about the runner (velocity, propulsive force, anaerobic energy) and was dependent upon physiological parameters and total available anaerobic energy, which could be used to deduce an optimal running strategy.

For more information on their work click here or check out the actual paper here (available until January, 2015)

On your mark, get set,.... MATH!

Spotlight on AMS

Congratulations to Professor Diniz Behn

Professor Cecilia Diniz Bhen, who joined AMS last year and whose research interests lie in differential equations with applications to mathematical biology, has received a research grant from Children's Hospital Colorado.  Professor Diniz Behn, along with Melanie Cree Green from the Pediatric Endocrinology Dept. of Children's Hospital Colorado received funding for their project entitled, "Hepatic and Andipose Insulin Resistance in Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome".
