A team of researchers has identified the best arrangements for fish swimming in schools—formations that are superior in terms of saving energy while also optimizing speed
NYU has launched an undergraduate major in data science—a degree that will train students to deploy a cutting-edge computational approach in understanding and addressing a range of phenomena.
Warm ocean water is causing rapid melt at the Greenland outlet glacier Helheim, one of the largest in the region, according to researchers from NYU Abu Dhabi’s Center for Global Sea Level Change and the Courant Institute of Mathematical Sciences.
Meteoroids coming from outer space are randomly shaped, but many of these, which land on earth as meteorites, are found to be carved into cones. Scientists have now figured out how the physics of flight in the atmosphere leads to this transformation.
Russel Caflisch, director of NYU’s Courant Institute of Mathematical Sciences, and Gloria Coruzzi, a professor in NYU’s Department of Biology, have been elected to the National Academy of Sciences.

The American Academy of Arts and Sciences (AAAS) has elected eight New York University faculty as fellows.
The film experience moves forward while looking backward with the U.S. premiere of CAVE, a shared virtual-reality experience that transports audiences back thousands of years, April 24 through May 5 at the 2019 Tribeca Film Festival.
Yann LeCun, a professor at the Courant Institute of Mathematical Sciences, has been awarded the ACM A.M. Turing Award for his breakthroughs in artificial intelligence.
Just as conservators have developed methods to protect traditional artworks, computer scientists, in collaboration with time-based media conservators, have created means to safeguard computer- or time-based art by following the same preservation principles.
A team of mathematicians has determined the ideal wing shape for fast flapping flight—a discovery that offers promise for better methods for harvesting energy from water as well as for enhancing air speed.
