Only one in four Western Roman emperors died of natural causes

In a study of the underlying mathematical pattern associated with the reign of the Caesars, researchers at CeMEAI concluded that the chances of survival obeyed the 80/20 rule seen in many phenomena, from earthquake magnitudes to numbers of followers on social media.

Social isolation and face covering reduced SARS-CoV-2 spread by 15% in São Paulo

Developed by RIDC CeMEAI, a mathematical model applied to the period between mid-March and early May also estimated that these public health measures reduced the peak of transmission by 25% in Brasília.

System forecasts hospital demand for personal protective equipment

The open-access tool was developed in Brazil by researchers at the Center for Mathematical Sciences Applied to Industry to minimize the risk of shortages and overspending.

Study shows advantage of alternating quarantines in cities across the state of São Paulo

Strategy would maintain economic activity and protect healthcare services, according to system developed by RIDC CeMEAI.

More interaction with industry is today’s main challenge for mathematicians

Brazilian scientific production in mathematics has a high impact and worldwide recognition. The knowledge created in the field must now be leveraged to fuel new businesses, innovations and job creation, according to the participants in a workshop co-organized by CeMEAI.

Researchers analyze aircraft landing gear noise

A group at a Brazilian university, partnering with engineers from Boeing, are using computer simulations to identify sources of noise produced by aircraft undercarriages

Study seeks to enhance diagnosis of schizophrenia through imaging

Software that classifies data from functional MRI diagnoses the disease with an 80% success rate. Now, it is being used to detect alterations in brain regions associated with schizophrenia

Virtual talent scout helps identify top performers in soccer and other sports

Developed at the Center for Research in Mathematical Sciences Applied to Industry, this cloud-based system is being tested by a soccer club academy
