StatMate takes the guesswork out of evaluating how many data points you’ll need for an experiment, and is designed to make it easy for you to quickly calculate the power of an experiment to detect various hypothetical differences.
StatXact 6 is a software package designed for exact, distribution-free inference with continuous or categorical data.
nQuery Advisor is software specifically for power/sample size calculations. It assists the researcher in determining the data variation and a desired or specified effect size necessary to calculate these in a user-friendly format. This release contains many analyses, tabular and formatting modes.
SigmaStat 3.0 and SigmaPlot are bundled for the analysis and graphic presentation of research data. While the two components of the bundle may be used as single packages or together, they expressively complement each others’ work.
SAS9 offers a new platform, enhanced analytics and refined user interfaces. This software is designed to accommodate changing organizational needs without any loss of efficiency.
NASA has chosen SGI Altix as the foundation of Project Columbia, an extensive collaboration with SGI and Intel Corporation that is expected to fuel scientific breakthroughs in space exploration, global warming research, and aerospace engineering. With Project Columbia, NASA plans to integrate a total of twenty
"Eight years ago, under the Arch in St. Louis, we kicked off the X PRIZE competition. I'm pleased to announce that the first team is ready to make an attempt to claim the $10 million, with other teams close behind," said Dr. Peter H. Diamandis, Chairman and Founder of the X PRIZE Foundation. "The American Mojave Aerospace Ventures Team and the Canadian
Solar physicists from Lockheed Martin and the Solar Physics and upper-Atmosphere Research Group at the Department of Applied Mathematics of the University of Sheffield, UK have used computer modeling and some of the highest resolution images ever taken of the solar atmosphere to explain the cause of supersonic jets
Violent jets of matter and energy that shoot out from some black holes originate in their spin, suggest the most realistic simulations of these torrents yet. Thousands of jets which radiate at radio wavelengths have been observed spewing from active galaxies. These galaxies are believed
Getting lost in the mountains can be a scary experience; it is easy to wonder off a trail or get confused about which direction you are going. New technology from the National Nuclear Security Administration's Sandia National Laboratories is now being used by the Albuquerque Mountain Rescue Council (AMRC) to help find and rescue lost hikers in the
A European team of astronomers has discovered the lightest known planet orbiting a star other than the sun (an "exoplanet"). The new exoplanet orbits the bright star mu Arae located in the southern constellation of the Altar. It is the second planet discovered around this star and completes a full revolution in 9.5 days
While rovers and orbiting spacecraft scour Mars searching for clues to its past, researchers have uncovered another piece of the red planet in the most inhospitable place on Earth Antarctica. The new specimen was found by a field party from the U.S. Antarctic Search for Meteorites program (ANSMET) on an ice field in the Miller Range of the Transantarctic Mountains, roughly
Francis Harry Compton Crick, co-discoverer of the double helical genetic blueprint of life known commonly as DNA, died. He was 88 years old and a resident of La Jolla, Calif. For his work, Crick a distinguished research professor and former president of the Salk Institute for Biological studies was awarded the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine in 1962, along with
What would a hospital be without the paperwork? The answer, says the government, is: more efficient, with fewer medical errors and lower costs. The government is setting technology standards and providing financial incentives for doctors and hospitals to invest in the transition to paperless systems
Microscopic scaffolding to house the tiny components of nanotech devices could be built from RNA, the same substance that shuttles messages around a cell's nucleus, reports a Purdue University research group. By encouraging ribonucleic acid (RNA) molecules to self-assemble into 3-D
