    Clojure is a Lisp language designed to run on a Java Virtual Machine (JVM) and interoperate automatically with all Java libraries. However, compared to Java, Clojure has a concurrency API that encourages programmers to take advantage of multicore architectures through multithreading, but Clojure doesn't burden programmers with low-level thread-coordination tasks.

    Developers use the open source Erlang programming language in domains such as telecommunications, database systems, and the Web due to its superior support for concurrency and reliability. Erlang applications comprise numerous processes-lightweight user-space threads-that communicate via message passing. This article focuses on Erlang's concurrency support and details an example 1D Poisson solver ... View full abstract»

    Haskell is a modern, functional programming language with an interesting story to tell about parallelism: rather than using concurrent threads and locks, Haskell offers a variety of libraries that enable concise, high-level parallel programs with results that are guaranteed to be deterministic (independent of the number of cores and the scheduling being used). This Web extra contains Haskell code,... View full abstract»

    Data cubes are used in online analytical processing (OLAP) systems to support decision making. Constructed from base business data, this interactive visualization system introduces a conditional 1D cuboid hierarchical tree structure to represent data cubes and use 2D graphical icons to illustrate data elements. Users can then interactively explore multidimensional data in hierarchical levels. View full abstract»

    The possibilities for designing new materials based on quantum physics calculations are rapidly growing, but these design efforts lead to a significant increase in the amount of computational data created. The Computational Materials Repository (CMR) addresses this data challenge and provides a software infrastructure that supports the collection, storage, retrieval, analysis, and sharing of data ...

    In the long run, your data matters more than your code. It's worth investing some effort to keep your data in good shape for years to come. Data is at the heart of science. A scientist is expected to be able to back up all published conclusions with data. Data management should thus be a priority in science. Scientists can't afford to lose data, be uncertain of what it means, or not know where it ... View full abstract»

    In space travel and in other work environments where transporting equipment is expensive, it's important that every item be as lightweight and versatile as possible. Strong platforms can be built by using six beams to connect two triangles. Given the six beams' lengths, the problem is to determine how many unique platforms can be constructed from them and the two given triangles. This Web extra co... View full abstract»
