Frontier of Physics: Interactive Map

They have craved an understanding of the underlying order in the world.” In the quest for a unified, coherent description of all of nature — a “theory of everything” — physicists have unearthed the taproots linking ever more disparate phenomena. With the law of universal gravitation, Isaac Newton wedded the fall of an apple to the orbits of the planets. Albert Einstein, in his theory of relativity, wove space and time into a single fabric, and showed how apples and planets fall along the fabric’s curves. And today, all known elementary particles plug neatly into a mathematical structure called the Standard Model. Our map of the frontier of fundamental physics, built by the interactive developer Emily Fuhrman, weights questions roughly according to their importance in advancing the field.

Imagine an archipelago where each island hosts a single tortoise species and all the islands are connected — say by rafts of flotsam.

Beyond the Bell Curve, a New Universal Law

As the tortoises interact by dipping into one another’s food supplies, their populations fluctuate. In 1972, the biologist Robert May devised a simple mathematical model that worked much like the archipelago. He wanted to figure out whether a complex ecosystem can ever be stable or whether interactions between species inevitably lead some to wipe out others. By indexing chance interactions between species as random numbers in a matrix, he calculated the critical “interaction strength” — a measure of the number of flotsam rafts, for example — needed to destabilize the ecosystem.

Below this critical point, all species maintained steady populations. Santa Fe Institute. New Journal of Physics. IOPscience. Omics - Book – Webvision. Jon Kleinberg's Homepage.

Weka 3 - Data Mining with Open Source Machine Learning Software in Java

The algorithms can either be applied directly to a dataset or called from your own Java code. Weka contains tools for data pre-processing, classification, regression, clustering, association rules, and visualization. It is also well-suited for developing new machine learning schemes. Found only on the islands of New Zealand, the Weka is a flightless bird with an inquisitive nature. The name is pronounced like this, and the bird sounds like this.

Weka is open source software issued under the GNU General Public License. We have put together several free online courses that teach machine learning and data mining using Weka. Yes, it is possible to apply Weka to big data! Międzynarodowy Hackaton Otwartych Danych / Open Data Hackaton.

Eternal inflation

MIT professor Alan H. Guth proposed an inflation model involving a "false vacuum" phase with positive vacuum energy. Parts of the universe in that phase inflate, and only occasionally decay to lower-energy, non-inflating phases or the ground state. Journal of Graph Algorithms and Applications.

Connectome Toolbox Software

To support these users, we are developing a set of Connectome software that will fully support browsing, download, exploration and analysis of HCP data. Connectome software will be downloadable as individual components with full documentation on installing and using the tools. Two key tools are being developed by the Human Connectome Project consortium, as a part of our HCP Informatics Infrastructure: All data collected in the Human Connectome Project will be published via ConnectomeDB, a web application that will enable users to query, filter and download data, and execute Connectome processing and analysis pipelines. The Connectome toolbox also includes analysis tools such as: FSL is a comprehensive (structural, functional and diffusion) neuroimaging software platform.
