Mathematica CalcCenter 3 is calculation software that combines computational abilities with a simple user interface.
GenStat is a comprehensive statistics system that offers ease-of-use for the novice user through a Windows menu interface or flexibility for the more experienced user through a command language interface. It offers a range of statistics techniques that have been tested by practicing statisticians.
Sentient Desktop, which brings together all relevant data in a common environment, has been integrated with the Partek Discovery Suite, a statistical analysis and interactive visualization software product optimized for computations on large experimental data.
The statistical and design of experiments (DOE) platforms included in JMP 5.1 provide more analysis capabilities to professionals who design and develop products, refine production processes or improve quality through Six Sigma initiatives.
Acquired via a $9.7 million grant from the National Science Foundation (NSF) in September 2004, Big Ben — the first XT3 system to ship from Cray — comprises 2,090 processors with an overall peak performance of 10 teraflops: 10 trillion calculations per second
Using a powerful microscope and computer software, a team of scientists from Johns Hopkins, the University of Arkansas, Worcester Polytechnic Institute and elsewhere has developed a faster and more objective way to examine the surfaces of fossilized teeth, a practice used to figure out the diets of our early ancestors.
UCLA chemists have created the first nano valve that can be opened and closed at will to trap and release molecules. The discovery, federally funded by the National Science Foundation, will be published July 19 in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences
NASA's Chandra X-ray Observatory survey of nearby sun-like stars suggests there is nearly three times more neon in the sun and local universe than previously believed. If true, this would solve a critical problem with understanding how the sun works
Researchers at Northwestern University's Center for Quantum Devices have demonstrated a specialized diode laser that holds promise as a weapon of defense in both civilian and military applications. Once optimized, the tiny laser could quickly detect explosives and CWAs early and warn against possible threats.
Most of the biggest black holes in the universe have been eating cosmic meals behind closed doors – until now. With its sharp infrared eyes, NASA's Spitzer Space Telescope peered through walls of galactic dust to uncover what may be the long-sought missing population of hungry black holes known as quasars.
In retrospect, I was probably distracted by some petty work issues when I returned to my apartment that evening in 1978. It was just twilight, and I was in a deep funk, staring at the ground as I walked from my car toward the apartment entrance.
Streamlining for speed with InfiniBand technology Kevin Shinpaugh, Ph.D. Long accepted as an article of faith within the high-tech industry, Moore's Law (CPU performance doubles every 18 months, while the cost of components halves) brings many blessings, yet it also presents a special set of challenges as far as harnessing increased CPU horsepower to other components of the system. Today, a "nothing-special" desktop computer bought from a discount retailer contains the processing power of a 10-year-old supercomputer
Effective management and analysis of electronic data has become a crucial determinant of success or failure Trevor W. Heritage In pursuit of new drugs, pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies are today generating staggering amounts of data through the application of technologies such as high-throughput screening and parallel chemical synthesis. While data management systems are able to cope with the volume of data, serious challenges are presented by the varying data types and richer information coming from genetic, microarray, proteomic
The TOP500 project was started in 1993 to provide a reliable basis for tracking and detecting trends in high-performance computing. Twice a year, a list of the sites operating the 500 most powerful computer systems is assembled and released. As predicted several years ago, only systems exceeding the one teraflop-per-second mark on the Linpack benchmark were able to enter the list
A closer look at the most powerful commercially available computer systems The TOP500 project was started in 1993 to provide a reliable basis for tracking and detecting trends in high- performance computing. Twice a year, a list of the sites operating the 500 most powerful computer systems is assembled and released. Take a closer look at profiles of the top 10 systems appearing on the 25th TOP500 List released during ISC2005
