Michael_UzokaSmart pill dispenser a shrewd solution for Africa

What does computer science have to do with health care? Everything, if you’re Faith-Michael Uzoka, PhD.

The Mount Royal professor is already known for creating soft-computing models/systems for efficient and effective diagnosis of tropical confusable diseases. Now, he’s partnered with Gift Arnold Mugisha, a “genius” high school student in Africa to change the face of health care on the continent. They’ve invented a smart pill dispenser doubling as an inanimate medical assistant that is equipped with remote communication capabilities between the patient and a medical professional. Full story

Modern Analysis Starts at MRU

Peter Zizler has co-authored a graduate level mathematics book that introduces real analysis with a rigorous yet lively approach that includes a multitude of illustrations. Peter ZizlerThis book provides links to several areas of modern analysis like Functional analysis, Fourier analysis and Nonlinear analysis at the graduate level.

The book is intended for a wide range of researches in various fields of mathematics especially analysis and linear algebra. Graduate students should be able to enjoy this book due to its wide scope of interests and depth, in particular, a huge bank of exercises in various areas.

Title: An Introduction to Modern Analysis
Authors: Vicente Montesinos, Peter Zizler and Vaclav Zizler
Publisher: Springer

Computing and Mathematics in the Community

 Over the summer we have upgraded the workstations in three of our computer labs, B107, B215 and B162, with dual monitors. Students learning programming and web development will have twice the screen real estate to work on!

 Funding for these upgrades was provided by MRU’s capital funding and the monitors were installed by Mathematics and Computing Instructional Assistants, Jordan Pratt and Steve Kalmar.
