The study, published April 10 in Public Library of Science Computational Biology (open access), relies on two leading mathematical models that have been shown to accurately describe human circadian rhythms. The researchers used these equations and a technique called optimal control theory to calculate ideal adjustment schedules for more than 1,000 possible trips.

The app gives users access to these schedules. Start by entering your typical hours of light and darkness in your current time zone, then choose the time zone you’re traveling to and when, as well as the brightest light you expect to spend the most time in during your trip (indoor or outdoor.) The app offers a specialized plan and predicts how long it will you take to adjust.

The service includes all laws and regulations contained in the Swedish Code of Statutes (SFS), and many guiding judicial decisions, including all Supreme Court findings published in NJA since 1981. For the most important laws there are also comments explaining and adding examples to the rules and paragraphs.
