The new zbMATH web interface is online, with a completely new layout and innovative search functionality (http://zbmath.org). FIZ Karlsruhe – Leibniz Institute for Information Infrastructure has developed the new user interface providing an intuitive, easy-to-use information service with enlarged functionality that meets the requirements of users in the mathematical community.
zbMATH is the world’s largest information system for mathematics. It is jointly edited by FIZ Karlsruhe, the European Mathematical Society (EMS) and the Heidelberg Academy of Sciences.
“The scientists’ demands on information services have significantly changed over the years,“ says Prof. Marta Sanz-Solé, President of the European Mathematical Society. „Information systems like zbMATH are nowadays indispensable for searching as well as for analyzing and visualizing research information. Our requirements have not only broadened but have also become more complex. The new possibilities offered by zbMATH support us not only in finding individual publications but also in analyzing answer sets and thus discovering additional information that leads us to new findings.“
zbMATH supports its users in answering manifold questions. How has a certain mathematical topic, e.g., the Poincaré conjecture, evolved during the last century from its formulation to the proof furnished by Perelman? What current research continues the concepts developed in this process, like, for example, the Kähler-Ricci-Flow? What have been the most rapidly growing areas during the last decade regarding the increase of publications? FIZ Karlsruhe has improved the underlying, powerful search engine that allows for all kinds of logical search combinations.
Completely new is the integration of swMATH. FIZ Karlsruhe has developed this new type of database. It allows for searching mathematical software, combined with links to relevant publications in zbMATH. The development of swMATH is subsidized as a project within the “Joint Initiative for Research and Innovation“, the research contest of the Leibniz Association. Prof. Dr. Dr. h. c. Gert-Martin Greuel, project leader and editor-in-chief of zbMATH states: “This new service, developed in collaboration with Mathematisches Forschungsinstitut Oberwolfach, fundamentally expands FIZ Karlsruhe’s information services in mathematics and is of particular interest for users of mathematical methods.”
The new interface now presents zbMATH in a much clearer way. Specific emphasis has been placed on the visual functions. Leaner text parts give a fast and precise overview of the information. Additional information is now often available via mouse-over or in scroll down menus. Last but not least: The new interface has been optimized for mobile devices.

Controlling electronic current is essential to modern electronics, as data and signals are transferred by streams of electrons which are controlled at high speed. Demands on transmission speeds are also increasing as technology develops. Scientists from the Chair of Laser Physics and the Chair of Applied Physics at Friedrich-Alexander-Universität Erlangen-Nürnberg (FAU) have succeeded in switching on a current with a desired direction in graphene using a single laser pulse within a femtosecond ¬¬ – a femtosecond corresponds to the millionth part of a billionth of a second. This is more than a thousand times faster compared to the most efficient transistors today.
Graphene is up to the job
At the productronica trade fair in Munich this November, the Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology ILT will be presenting Laser-Based Tape-Automated Bonding, LaserTAB for short. The experts from Aachen will be demonstrating how new battery cells and power electronics can be micro-welded more efficiently and precisely than ever before thanks to new optics and robot support.
Fraunhofer ILT from Aachen relies on a clever combination of robotics and a laser scanner with new optics as well as process monitoring, which it has developed...
Plants and algae use the enzyme Rubisco to fix carbon dioxide, removing it from the atmosphere and converting it into biomass. Algae have figured out a way to increase the efficiency of carbon fixation. They gather most of their Rubisco into a ball-shaped microcompartment called the pyrenoid, which they flood with a high local concentration of carbon dioxide. A team of scientists at Princeton University, the Carnegie Institution for Science, Stanford University and the Max Plank Institute of Biochemistry have unravelled the mysteries of how the pyrenoid is assembled. These insights can help to engineer crops that remove more carbon dioxide from the atmosphere while producing more food.

Our brains house extremely complex neuronal circuits, whose detailed structures are still largely unknown. This is especially true for the so-called cerebral cortex of mammals, where among other things vision, thoughts or spatial orientation are being computed. Here the rules by which nerve cells are connected to each other are only partly understood. A team of scientists around Moritz Helmstaedter at the Frankfiurt Max Planck Institute for Brain Research and Helene Schmidt (Humboldt University in Berlin) have now discovered a surprisingly precise nerve cell connectivity pattern in the part of the cerebral cortex that is responsible for orienting the individual animal or human in space.
The researchers report online in Nature (Schmidt et al., 2017. Axonal synapse sorting in medial entorhinal cortex, DOI: 10.1038/nature24005) that synapses in...
