Let There be Light: Simulations Re-create X-rays Emerging from the Neighborhood of Black Holes

February 18, 2014 4:33 pm | by Aaron Dubrow, NSF | News | Comments

Black holes may be dark, but the areas around them definitely are not. These dense, spinning behemoths twist up gas and matter just outside their event horizon, and generate heat and energy that gets radiated, in part, as light. And when black holes merge, they produce a bright intergalactic burst that may act as a beacon for their collision.

No Room for Wrong Notes: Software IDs Manipulated Recordings

February 3, 2014 3:30 am | by Fraunhofer | News | Comments

Each audio file has its own history. Editing processes such as cutting and compressing leave their own marks, and this is what researchers use to detect manipulated recordings or plagiarized passages of music with the help of special software.

New Algorithm Separates Signals into Individual Frequencies using Minimal Number of Samples

December 11, 2013 10:43 am | by Helen Knight, MIT | News | Comments

The fast Fourier transform, one of the most important algorithms of the 20th century, revolutionized signal processing. The algorithm allowed computers to quickly perform Fourier transforms — fundamental operations that separate signals into their individual frequencies — leading to developments in audio and video engineering and digital data compression.

Matrices Have Broad Ramifications in Computer Science

December 9, 2013 4:38 pm | by Larry Hardesty, MIT | News | Comments

Among the most common tools in electrical engineering and computer science are rectangular grids of numbers known as matrices. The numbers in a matrix can represent data, and they can also represent mathematical equations.

Detached-Eddy Simulations on Double Delta Wing Vortical Flows

June 28, 2013 10:59 am | by Science China Press | News | Comments

The double delta wing is a simplified configuration used for studying aircraft aerodynamics. It is composed of a highly-swept delta wing connected in front of the main delta wing with a smaller sweep, reflecting the combination of a leading edge extension and the swept main wing. The aerodynamic performance of such wings, which includes the behavior of the leeside vortical flows at moderate and...

New Scheme for Quantum Computing

June 25, 2013 10:50 pm | by University of California, San Diego | News | Comments

Tom Wong, a graduate student in physics and David Meyer, professor of mathematics at the University of California, San Diego, have proposed a new algorithm for quantum computing, that will speed a particular type of problem. But swifter calculations would come at the cost of greater physical resources devoted to precise timekeeping, their analysis has determined.
