New book by NUS researchers introduces a new methodology, namely the simplified and highly stable lattice Boltzmann method (SHSLBM), for constructing numerical schemes within the lattice Boltzmann framework for simulations of fluid mechanics problems. Through rigorous mathematical derivations and abundant numerical validations, SHSLBM is found to outperform the conventional LBM in terms of memory cost, boundary treatment and numerical stability.
Research released today recommends that the US federal government triple its annual investment in energy innovation over the next five years to speed clean energy transitions around the world and build advanced energy industries at home. The Center on Global Energy Policy at Columbia SIPA released Energizing America: A Roadmap to Launch a National Energy Innovation Mission, a detailed guide for federal policymakers to raise energy innovation as a core national priority.

Who was Paul de Lagarde? Researchers from Egyptology and Coptic Studies at the University of Göttingen, with the Moses Mendelssohn Center for European Jewish Studies in Potsdam (MMZ), worked on a historical re-assessment of the life and work of the Göttingen Orientalist (1827-1891). The researchers focussed on the political and ideological aspects of the scholar's uvre, in particular on Lagarde's anti-Semitism. Their conclusions were published in the series "European Jewish Studies" by De Gruyter.
"The Rise and Fall of Business Firms", the new book co-authored by Massimo Riccaboni of IMT School for Advanced Studies Lucca, recently released by Cambridge University Press, offers a theoretical framework of how innovation and competition shape the growth and decline of companies.
