U-Ms solar car team’s newest creation features four wheels instead of three, incorporates an asymmetric driving position in the name of increased efficiency and maximizes its Detroit connections as it heads for the biennial World Solar Challenge this October in Australia.
As part of an ongoing collaboration, seven joint research teams from U-M and Shanghai Jiao Tong University have won funding for research projects that explore the potential of nanotechnology in energy and biomedical applications.
The lopsided solar car named Generation, unveiled today, might be the oddest-looking vehicle the top-ranked U-M team has ever built. But the bold shape is a calculated effort to design the most efficient car possible, given major changes in World Solar Challenge race rules.
High frequency trading strategies that exploit today's fragmented equity markets reduce investor profits overall, according to new findings by U-M engineering researchers. Computer science and engineering professor Michael Wellman and doctoral student Elaine Wah ran sophisticated computer simulations to demonstrate the effects of a practice known as latency arbitrage.
U-M computer science professor Michael Wellman discusses high-frequency trading and its effects on the stock market. Recently, this algorithmic model came under fire when it was revealed a fake Twitter update caused a 1 per cent decline in major US stock indexes.
Computer programmers believe they know how to build cryptographic systems that are impossible for anyone, even the U.S. government, to crack. So why can the NSA read your e-mail? U-M computer science professor J. Alex Halderman is quoted.
