April 14, 2014, Ann Arbor, Mi. - Resetting one's internal clock is more complicated than simply turning back the hands. To help those struggling with jet lag, researchers have created Entrain.

Based on research from mathematicians at the University of Michigan,
Entrain is designed for travellers, night-shift workers and anyone else
whose circadian rhythms have been thrown out of whack. The app is
available now on iOS.
The free app, designed by Olivia Walch, is based on equations developed
by Danniel B. Forger and Kirill Serkh, both professors of mathematics
at the University of Michigan. The two mathematicians published their
findings on how math can reduce the time it takes to get over jet lag in
the April 10 issue of PLOS Computational Biology.
