Questions related to Mathematics
I am working on parental beliefs about mathematics and it teaching and learning and want to investigate, in which ways parents support their children with their mathematics education. Therein I am focusing on early secondary school (11-12 year old students).
I am writing a paper assessing unidimensionality of multiple-choice mathematics test items. The scoring of the test was based on right or wrong answers which imply that the set of data are in nominal scale. Some earlier research studies that have consulted used exploratory factor analysis, but with the little experience in data management, I think factor analysis may not work. This unidimensionality is one of the assumptions of dichotomously scored items in IRT. Please sirs/mas, I need professional guidance, if possible the software and the manual.
As applied to physics, the source is a mathematically described process and the target is one without a mathematically described process or without a mathematically described process known to the student. Analogy can suggest a mathematical model to a researcher. Analogy assists the student by demonstrating that knowledge already acquired can help in understanding a new subject. Thus analogy can be an investigative tool and a pedagogical tool. John Holland in his book on Emergence from Chaos to Order attributes the source-target characterization to Maxwell (p. 210) but I have not been able thus far to locate Maxwell’s employment of that characterization. Maxwell spoke about analogy as a useful pedagogical tool in an 1870 address to the Mathematical and Physical Sections of the British Association included in his collective works, volume 2, page 215. At page 219: Analogy `is not only convenient for teaching science in a pleasant and easy manner, but the recognition of the formal analogy between the two systems of ideas leads to a knowledge of both, more profound than could be obtained by studying each system separately.’
Do you know the origin of the source-target analogy?
Regarding assumptions of linear regression, can I replace scatter plots with mathematical equations in my article and claim that there is a linear relationship between two variables on the basis of equations. I want to conserve space in my article without presenting scatter plots. Please advise. Thank you.
The new Education Act (LOMLOE) that is now being prepared in Spain intends to make Mathematics an optional subject. The Mathematics Institute has issued a manifest that argues about the importance of Mathematics in society, and in favour of keeping Mathematics as a compulsory subject in high school. If you agree with this, please sign the manifest at the link below (the manifest is in Spanish; I don't remember if there is an English version):
There is also a petition at change.org:
Thank you very much in advance.
As a founder of making dialectical logic mathematically, author has constructed a mathematical expression for dialectical logic, and proofed the formal logic is only a special case in dialectical logic, see preprint titiled "mathematical foundation for dialectical logic" in my profile, then do you admit author's viewpoints in this field?
I am currently for maths project creating a card game that focusses to improve subitizing for students' age between 6-9 years old. I now want to create the 'best' colors for the game but I am looking for research that shows the effect of colors toward children.
If you could help me or link me to research I'd highly appreciate it.
Generally QSR is considered as the parameter for location based service. End-to-end delay, number of hops etc. are the parameters for routing. Why combination of routing and location service enhances the performances of the parameters?
a transport model (e.g logit model or ...) is based on statistical data and field works or merely based on mathematical theories or both of them?
If I want to define a model ( e.g. a new model in freight transportation ), what actions should I do? what kinds of data should I gather?
I am trying to justify the use of AT instead of UTAUT for my paper on teacher challenges faced when using technology to teach mathematics...
While many modern causal models do not seem to adhere to Laplace's demon (strict determinism) which treated error factors as merely unknown causes, they do not also always address the issue of freedom and responsibility sufficiently. While it is acknowledged that the human element (as far as intervention) is concerned might involve an exogenous factor (perhaps, "transcendent cause" in neoplatonic terms), posing problem to the equilibrium of an otherwise deterministic system, the models themselves might seem relevant for systems that are independent of human intervention, e.g. artificial intelligence. But, that evokes ethical questions, especially regarding whether formalism of such models can totally ignore the question of responsibility or should they really be resolving them. In more practical terms, can such a machine be constructed based on a causal model that can correctly predict and make right moral decisions for humans?
To me it is mostly a story.
There is, at the outset, a puzzle about some natural phenomena, perhaps encountered by inadvertence.
Then some other process exhibits a similar pattern. The question becomes is there some reason, perhaps based on the thermodynamics of the two systems, that connects them?
This takes the curious inquirer into a conceptual forest, or overgrown garden, path obscured, looking for a common principle. When a principle is discerned, there are more questions.
Does the pattern appear elsewhere?
Is there a more fundamental principle underlying the first principle discerned?
Does a principle, even more fundamental, connect all the different phenomena sharing a kind of pattern? Does the same pattern appear but in subtle ways in other phenomena?
Can the phenomena be modeled? What assumptions are extraneous to arriving a model in common? What is the set of minimal assumptions?
Many more paths and tangles appear.
Can the winding path so obscure at the outset be reduced to a set of logical statements that resemble in their appearance mathematical deduction? Never finally, but at least provisionally?
But first, there is a story.
How do you regard physics?
In the litterature about quantization schemes, people tend to use Weyl ordering a lot.
Altough it enjoys some desirable properties like sending real functions into self-adjoint operators or sending Schwarz functions into trace class operators, we know that these features are not unique of Weyl ordering.
Is there any deep reason (being mathematical of physical) to prefer Weyl ordered quantizers?
I'm attempting to create nonlinear metamaterial structures in comsol and I don't know how to measure second harmonic generation.
How do I measure that frequency x goes into structure and generates frequency 2x ?
Thanks for any help.
Why many scientists use the term mathematical model ?
If you have a certain phenomenon and you want to model it, you will describe its, more or less, approximate behaviour by applying to it laws which can be physical, chemical, economical, geometrical and so on, depending on the phenomenon.
Mathematics is only a tool to describe these laws, so you should speak of physical, chemical, economical, geometrical ... models and not of mathematical ones.
Most of the models I encounter in my research are physical models because, to build them up, the laws of physics are used.
Each time I hear the term mathematical model, my nose gets wrinkled.
What is your opinion ?
I want to conduct a qualitative research about math teaching and learning at pandemic Covid-19 in several specific area in my country. But i don't have any idea to start because i'm not good in qualitative research. It's kindly opened for join research.

I'm a final semester student in BS Mathematics and my research interest is in Mathematical Biology. Would you like to provide me the best SEIQR ODEs model for stability and optimal control? I want to do stability and optimal control for our province's real data. So, please recommend the paper.
Thank you so much.
Is there any alternative topic/theory/mathematical foundation to compressed sensing (CS) theory?
successive to Nyquist Criterion is CS theory, is there any theory that surpasses the CS theory ?
What does it actually mean to exist? How is it different from non-existence? How can we be sure if something exists or does not exist? I have made a case that these questions are more fundamental than the usually dubbed first question "Why is there something rather than nothing"? Here is a ready link for which I would appreciate your comments.
Please do feel free to share the link with your colleagues and friends who you think might be interested in this topic.
I want to create an animation to insert it in my math presentation (e.g. a ball hitting the wall, deforming and bouncing back: just an example). Is there any free and easy to use software (preferably, for Mac OS X) to do that?
Which one is the best? I know how to create some animations in Matlab and Mathematica, but this is different: I don't want to code the whole scene as functions.
I wish to shift multiple lines or curves (up to 25 lines/curves) so that they are superimposed on one another. This is to enable me see clearly the points or regions where any one of the curves deviate from the others. In this procedure I also want to be able to vary or determine the region or range of superimposition or overlay of the curves. What mathematical function or formulae can enable me do that?
I currently use MCS method to analyze effect of some uncertain parameters on electrical power system and run 10,000 simulations to calculate the output which approximately takes around 1 hour.
I recently read some methods which can reduce the MCS scenarios thus, resulting in low computational time.
So, can our fellow researchers elaborate more on this topic or suggest me any other techniques which has the potential to significantly reduce the computational time of MCS (say around 5 minutes for my work) with reasonable accuracy?
I have been looking at different types of inductive teaching for mathematics. These include inquiry-based, discovery, problem-based, project-based, case-based, just-in-time, and a hybrid of project and problem-based.
Is there an inductive teaching approach or curriculum that uses everyday topics and students learn the mathematics needed to understand different pieces of it? For example, a class is discussing gardening. So the students learn how to calculate area of their garden. Then they look at mixture problems (fertilizer and soil). Then they see how Fibonacci plays into petals and seed patterns.
It doesn't quite fit one of the inductive teachings exactly. I think it is a combination of several.
Who has done research on this? Who/what should I be looking for?

I'm currently working on a Structural Health monitoring approach for the foundations of an offshore wind turbine based on its resonance frequencies. On the basis of a large dataset that recovers measurements of several independent variables , I have already established a linear model in order to predict the target (here, the resonance frequency). I performed a Dominance analysis, Regressions, Features selection etc., in order to evaluate which features influences my target the most. However, I would like to improve the accuracy of my linear model by adding more features to my dataset (and then select the best features to build the most suitable model.), i.e. identify underlying mathematical expression (non-linear) between the independent variables and the target. I already performed Genetic Programming (GP) with symbolic regression (SymbolicRegressor) but didn't get consistent results. Is there a method by which I could get these underlying (non-linear) mathematical relationships ?
Thanks a lot,
Can you help me interpret the result of of the ATMI different factors..how can i interpret it as how low, moderate, or very high the result is of the factors.
Dear ResaerchGate Members,
I would like to check the observability and controlability of a system that has 200 states. When I use the conventional method ofobservability based rank, the Matrix of A^(n-1) (A^199 , where A has 200x200 arrays) will have the array of infinity.
I would be thankful to have your recommendations?
Best regards, Reza

My institution(where I work), Accra Institute of Technology(AIT) is switching to Open-Book Exams Questions for our mid-sem exams. A little challenge is with the applied mathematics courses and how the students will submit their responses in MS Word format. Hence this inquiry. Attached is a sample question.
Movement in musical scores does not have an equation of motion or a calculus of variations.
Is there any other kind of harmonic motion that does not obey Newtonian law?
Of course, frequency is velocity-like but I do not see this in the literature.
I understand that the force field may be uniform so dF = 0, but is it not true there must be a force if movement occurs.
It is the requirement of one project of location of the dams and rivers in the country.
basically scholar is having maths and statistics background but he is doing research in fluid mechanics. he is interested but difficulty is finding problem and doing paper publications.
so we need some suggestions. how to develop knowledge on this research area being a mathematics scholar.
when using this [peaksnr,snr]=psnr(watermarked_rgb,host); value is 44.13 and 38.39 but when using MSE=mse(watermarked_rgb,host); value is 0.2456,0.2146 and 0.2691 respectively. If you use the mathematical equation PSNR = 10log10(255*255/MSE) values came 54.So which one is correct.
I am looking for simple text book references to understand the mathematics used by Ashtekar in papers like Asymptotic with positive cosmological constant. I understands GTR so far as Einstein equation and its solution like Schwartzchild solution, kerr etc. There is a great bandgap in mathematics used by these two scenarios.
Study the history of mathematics. Likely, it will start at Mesopotamia 3000 BC. Now, it is undisputed H. sapiens trace back to Africa, perhaps earlier than 200 millennia ago. So, didn’t the early humans think about themselves and the environment around them? Of course they did. And they used tools of mathematics. Nearly 60 years ago, that mathematics was discovered in Ishango, the border between Uganda and the DRC. So, why does mathematics ignore Ishango?

While most governments try to hide the facts and manipulate statistics about COVOD-19 due to political/economical/stupidity reasons, many physicians and scientists are currently working on finding cures for COVOD-19. I am curious whether there is any center/platform to use experts from different areas of research in this fight.
To be clearer, let me ask this:
I work in biomedical engineering department. I, my colleagues and our students are familiar with optimization, data analysis, artificial intelligence, time-series analysis, modeling, control and …
I hope there might be a center which can provide some data, plus some tasks, so we can do some real and useful research and have a share in this fight.
Just a saying: maybe a proper deep neural network can suggest best combination of drugs according to the available history.
My question is about the direct fight. I don’t mean helping in e.g. producing masks, cloths and …
How to validate mathematical equations which govern a process/ phenomenon?
I have few mathematical models which govern a mechanical phenomenon..Experimentation is not possible..hence I want to do the validation.
I got a laser source with the following parameters, 800 nm with pulse duration 110 fs. I intend to perform an SHG (Second Harmonic Generation) in order to produce a field of 400 nm wavelength. What should be my BBO crystal length to achieve, and what mathematical expression can I use to get it.
we all know entropy from physics and complexity of information,
so my question is about the possiblity to reorder information
zu a certain more ordered state of the past by human and digital technologies.
The factors I see in conguence to physics are (direction, entropy, time ...), in
information science (information capability, and modal situational logic) and in maths
(combination as sort of differentiation functionality to gain avarage information content towards a cause)
So to think is one example of such neg-entropy
Are there others?
In mathematics, there is a kind of number carriers with cognizable quantitative properties (such as imaginary number, fuzzy number, infinitesimal variables and monads … in present mathematics)"; these “mathematical carriers of abstract concepts and laws” can join any quantitative calculation process with finite number forms (number forms with Archimedean Property) but their exact values are unknown. They are defined as “number forms with Half Archimedean Property". The history of our mathematics has proved that people need to carry out various necessary qualitative and quantitative cognitions and studies on those “mathematical carriers of abstract concepts and laws with “Archimedean Property” or “Half Archimedean Property".
There are many existing publishers that publish high quality books in mathematics, but my question here is: I want some suggestions about publishers who most likely publish books in the field of fractional calculus and fractional differential equations because I am interested in submitting a book proposal for a suggested publisher. Could you please share you information/knowledge about such recommended publishers in this specific field of research in mathematics? I would greatly appreciate your brilliant efforts and time!!
How to find the URL to know about the Call for papers & Book Chapter in Elsevier, Springer & IEEE?
(Specially for mathematics and applied mathematics)
I approach this issue constructively. I'll give you my example, and you can point me to other examples of physical interpretation of arithmetic functions. My example in the attached paper "On the winding of a sphere" in which are the conclusion:
"Thus, our abstract mathematical constructions have some similarities with the mathematical formalism of quantum mechanics, and therefore the questions of the substantiation of quantum mechanics could possibly get an answer within the framework of the mathematical formalism developed here. At least, bearing in mind that the Jacobi theta function $\theta(z, \tau)$ satisfies the Schrodinger equation with complex variables, we could interpret it as ``quantum'' oscillations of the mathematical pendulum of the sphere winding, and Hurwitz zeta function satisfying the generalized Schrodinger equation, interpreted as a function of the oscillations of a mathematical pendulum with an evolving (for example, decaying) complex angle of deflection of the winding. On the other hand, the metaphysical method of random walks around winding a sphere that we have developed will probably find application in the substantiation of the Hilbert-Polya conjecture on the connection of nontrivial zeros of the Riemann zeta function with the eigenvalues of a certain differential operator."
and the abstract:
"First, we bring the reader to one remarkable result of the action of a modular group on a sphere, proving that of all closed torus windings wound around a sphere, single-wound windings that are indexed by a set of primes stand out. Further, we show that the rotation of the torus windings on a sphere, together with the measurement of the complex value of the angular coordinates of a discrete set of their points, gives us all the necessary data for the formation of the Riemann zeta function. Then, considering the dynamics of the windings, we notice that in the problem of random walk along the broken lines of the winding of a sphere, the concept of complex probability amplitude arises quite naturally, and the dynamics of the probability amplitude of the stray particle obeys a differential equation generalizing the Schrodinger equation."
I will only add that, perhaps, we can find a technological application of this equation.
Indeed, if the generalized Schrödinger equation works in nature, then the interaction time should be included as an additional factor in the nuclear reaction. In other words, due to the exponentially time-dependent coefficient of the generalized Schrödinger equation, the longer the nuclei come closer, the higher the probability of a nuclear reaction.

Recently years, we noticed more and more that the mathematics field is surely recommended to apply in all other fields of study to get accurate and undisputed results. with my good background in mathematics and computer programming, I'm looking for a good project to work with to use it in administration and/or economic fields. any suggestions?
Is it correct in assuming that any number (x) added to another number (y) will result in a number (Z) that will be less than the sum (Z) of the same numbers (x,y) MULTIPLIED together? In other words:
will x + y = ? always be less than (x) x (y) = ?
