Automatic Shuffling Turns Predictable[newscientist.com]Jul 22, 2011
 
    After hiring statisticians from Stanford to check the randomness of their automatic card shuffling machines, the president of the company responded "We are not pleased with your conclusions, but we believe them and that's what we hired you for."

Extending Escher[newscientist.com]Jun 20, 2011
 
    Mathematics in the field of fractal mechanics and hyperbolic geometry were not even a twinkle in M.C. Escher's eyes when he started his dive into his amazing art. As the subjects have matured, scientists are now able to not only extend his art, but interpolate their own.

Proving The Collatz Conjecture[newscientist.com]Jun 03, 2011
 
    Follow these easy steps:
  1. Pick any number. Any number at all.
  2. If it's even, divide it by two.
  3. If it's odd, multiply by 3 and add one.
  4. If the resulting number does not equal 1, goto line 1 using your previous result as your new number.
The Collatz conjecture says that the above statement is true, though so far there has been no official proof of such a statement. It appears we are on the brink of bringing this mathematical anomaly to a close.

Largest DNA Calculator Yet Created[wired.com]Jun 03, 2011
 
    Using biological systems to create logic gates has been a practice used for quite some time already; however, scientists from Caltech have taken it a step further and are now stacking multiple gates on one another. The result: building an organic calculating machine.

Shortest Route? Ask Your Cells![wired.com]Apr 11, 2011
 
    The Travelling Salesman problem has been pondered for years, and there's even a 1 million dollar reward for anyone who can solve it, or prove it cannot be solved! Mathematical biologist Andy Reynolds has recently published some work to show how White Blood Cells tend to "follow their noses" along a chemical gradient to solve the problem efficiently (in reference to fighting infection.)
