A new form of water has been discovered by physicists in Argonne's Intense Pulsed Neutron Source (IPNS) Division. Called nanotube water, these molecules contain two hydrogen atoms and one oxygen atom but do not turn into ice even at temperatures near absolute zero…
Computers just respond to commands, never “thinking” about the consequences. A new software language, however, promises to enable computers to reason much more precisely and thus better reflect subtleties intended by commands of human operators.
NASA has announced that a mission to fly to Jupiter will proceed to a preliminary design phase. The mission is called Juno, and it is the second in NASA's New Frontiers Program. The mission will conduct an in-depth study of the giant planet
University of Wisconsin-Madison College of Engineering researchers have discovered a new way to make a diesel-like liquid fuel from carbohydrates commonly found in plants. Chemical and Biological Engineering graduate students detail a four-phase catalytic reactor in which corn and other biomass-derived carbohydrates…
Using high-tech engineering principles, an MIT/Harvard team has developed a low-tech solution to the problem of how to build homes in tsunami-prone areas. The team recently produced an architectural model for a Sri Lankan house that essentially would allow a powerful ocean wave…
The cameras and MP3 players are fun, but the next wave of add-ons for cell phones and laptops may help users keep track of their health. A University of Florida engineer has built a working prototype for a small, portable system that can monitor a person’s breathing and heart rate…
In a dress rehearsal for the rendezvous between NASA's Deep Impact spacecraft and comet 9P/Tempel 1, the Hubble Space Telescope captured dramatic images of a new jet of dust streaming from the icy comet.
The aim for IDA-2005 is to bring together a wide variety of researchers concerned with extracting knowledge from data, including people from statistics, machine learning, neural networks, computer science, pattern recognition, database management, and other areas.
The Laura 3.3 chromatography data system expands to control an entire HPLC system rather than just the radio detector. Each instrument component is controlled using the software’s Method Wizard
S+ArrayAnalyzer 2.1 is a statistically-robust and adaptable microarray analysis software product enabling analyses of complex microarray data. In combination with S-PLUS 7, the software handles differential expression and class discovery/prediction
BioWorks 3.2 enables scientists conducting protein or proteomics research to identify proteins. The program supports the range of Finnigan ion trap mass spectrometers, and finds applications in the pharmaceutical industry, academia
The Biomolecular Interaction Network Database (BIND) 3.8 provides scientists with structured and curated biological assembly data ranging from molecular interactions and small-molecule chemical reactions to interfaces from three-dimensional structures, pathways and genetics interaction networks.
This intensive three-day event will assemble leaders from around the world in technical computing and other related fields for presentations on the latest advances in Mathematica and other Wolfram technologies.
