## Q-Index

Ok, we all know about h-index nowadays. Here is another index, which, according to the authors of this paper [1], published in Science, measures individual scientific impact. This is now Q-index, which not only predicts h-index and cumulative citations, but … Continue reading

## Lecture notes on PDE

The semester is over, and this Spring I really enjoyed teaching the course on partial differential equations. All the lecture notes can be found at the course web page, or, in one file, at ResearchGate.

## Another paper

Our already long list of papers devoted to the analysis of a replicator equation became longer with a new paper by Alexander Bratus, Volodya Posvyanskii and myself, “Solutions with a bounded support promote permanence of a distributed replicator equation,” which … Continue reading

## Eigen quasispecies model and isometry groups

Quite some time ago Yura Semenov and I uploaded yet another paper on the quasispecies theory (this is a continuation of this research), here is an archive link. The title of the paper is “On Eigen’s quasispecies model, two-valued fitness … Continue reading

## New journal in Math Biology

NEW JOURNAL IN MATHEMATICAL BIOLOGY We are excited to announce the recent launch of SPORA, a Journal of Biomathematics. To date, there is no journal reserved for illustrating the rapidly growing body of biomathematical research conducted by undergraduate researchers and … Continue reading

## And one more link

Large-scale comparison of science teaching methods sends clear message However, in undergraduate STEM education, we have the curious situation that, although more effective teaching methods have been overwhelmingly demonstrated, most STEM courses are still taught by lectures—the pedagogical equivalent of bloodletting.

## A couple links

How to write teaching statement. The plagiarism problem in science.

## How to Make More Published Research True

Currently, many published research findings are false or exaggerated, and an estimated 85% of research resources are wasted. To make more published research true, practices that have improved credibility and efficiency in specific fields may be transplanted to others which … Continue reading

## Diversity and mathematics

“Diversity” has become an important concept in the modern university, affecting admissions, faculty hiring, and administrative appointments. In the paper “Groups of diverse problem solvers can outperform groups of high-ability problem solvers” [1], L. Hong and S. Page claim to … Continue reading
