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!

Congratulations to Prof. Paul Martin

Join us in wishing Professor Paul Martin a hearty congratulations!  Paul recently received the Dean's Excellence Award due to his "demonstrated meritorious achievement in teaching and scholarship".  For those of you that have been fortunate enought to have taken a class from Prof. Martin, you already know that the honor is well deserved.  For those of you that have not been so lucky, you definitely should change that.
