<p>Fuzziness is usually the last thing you would want to associate with a pizza, as it conjures up images of quietly decaying remnants of last week's dinner. However, researchers from <a href="http://www.ucd.ie/">University College, Dublin</a> are relying on fuzziness to help deliver you the perfect pizza.</p>

As customers will tell you, overcrowding is a problem on trains. Fortunately, mathematical modelling techniques can help to analyse the changing demands on services through the day. <strong>Tim Gent</strong> explains. </div>

<h2>Going Places with Maths</h2>
<p>If you ask anyone what they dislike about trains, the chances are they will say one of two things: "They're always late" or "They're too crowded". As it happens, both of these problems have been studied using mathematical modelling techniques. This article looks at the latter problem, a topic known as "Peak Load Management". <!-- FILE: include/leftfig.html --></p><p><a href="http://plus.maths.org/content/model-trains" target="_blank">read more</a></p>http://plus.maths.org/content/model-trains#comments17fuzzy logicnormal distributionoperational researchpeak load managementsensitivity analysisFri, 01 Dec 2000 00:00:00 +0000plusadmin2191 at http://plus.maths.org/content
