The maths that saw the US shutdown coming
For Peter Turchin, a mathematical ecologist at the University of Connecticut in Storrs, the standoff was predictable. He is one of a small group of people applying the mathematics of complex systems to political instability. They have been anticipating events just like this – and they say that if we don't find some way to respond to the warning signs and change course, things are bound to get a lot worse before they get better.

Why Guessing Your Romantic Partner Is So Important to Facebook
This week, with a paper published on the online academic research site ArXiv.org, Backstrom revealed one of the recent fruits of his labor: an experimental algorithm that analyzes your personal network of friends, seeking to identify your strongest relationships. Developed alongside his former Cornell thesis adviser, Jon Kleinberg, the algorithm is strong enough to independently identity your spouse or romantic partner and even predict when you’re headed for a breakup.
