Mansour Hammad, a math major undergraduate at LTU developed a novel expansion approach designed to provide a simplified approach to a common form of equations. Mansour’s expansion addresses equations of a certain common form, and makes a simplified solution than Lagrange and Taylor expansion. The work can be used to improve analysis of medical data, but also has application to engineering and even sports. Mansour published his discovery in the International Journal on Numerical and Analytical Methods in Engineering. The discovery also attracted attention of the popular press in his home country Saudi Arabia.
