New Article: "The Tongue as an Excitable Medium"
Yes, really: an article called "The Tongue as an Excitable Medium" was published a few days ago in New Journal of Physics. This title is fantastic on so many levels! The article is about a condition known as "geographic tongue", which the authors of the paper model as an excitable medium, in which they (of course) examine pattern formation. But that's not what you were thinking, is it? I have written a blurb about the paper for the Improbable Research blog. I'll post a link to it when it's available. (Tip of the cap to IFLS.) Update: Here is the published version of my blurb.
