Can mathematical models help us to take care our planet?

In recent years, it has been heard more and more frequently talking about such an abstract concept as mathematical models in an abstract appearance. With the COVID-19 epidemic, news bulletins were filled with news with "predictions" about what could happen in the future and the impact of different...

Chemical fingerprint of food: an alternative way to fight against food fraud
