Computation and theory news, July 2014

The magnets cluttering the face of your refrigerator may one day be used as cooling agents, according to a new theory formulated by MIT researchers.

A three-dimensional porous nanostructure would have a balance of strength, toughness and ability to transfer heat, according to scientists.

The first experimental evidence for a boron buckyball has been obtained by chemists in the US and China.

Thank you to all who have submitted. Winners to be announced at the Materials Today Asia conference in December.

A new mathematical model could help engineers control the formation of wrinkle, crease, and fold structures in a wide variety of materials.

Researchers have developed a material which transports a magnetic field from one location to the other, similar to how a hose transports water.
