Spiders: Survival of the fittest group
(University of Vermont) Theorists have long debated the existence and power of a type of evolution called group selection. Now, studying social spiders, two scientists have uncovered the first-ever experimental evidence of group selection driving collective traits in wild populations of these spiders.

UT Arlington big data analytics could yield better treatment for pain management
(University of Texas at Arlington) A UT Arlington multi-disciplinary team is optimizing and integrating volumes of data in a National Science Foundation research project to help physicians make better, more informed decisions about treating patients' pain.

New approach can predict impact of climate change on species that can't get out of the way
(University of Maryland Center for Environmental Science) When scientists talk about the consequences of climate change, it can mean more than how we human beings will be impacted by higher temperatures, rising seas and serious storms. Plants and trees are also feeling the change, but they can't move out of the way. Researchers have developed a new tool to overcome a major challenge of predicting how organisms may respond to climate change.

Research confirms controversial Darwin theory of 'jump dispersal'
(National Institute for Mathematical and Biological Synthesis (NIMBioS)) More than one hundred and fifty years ago, Charles Darwin hypothesized that species could cross oceans and other vast distances on vegetation rafts, icebergs, or in the case of plant seeds, in the plumage of birds.Though many were skeptical of Darwin's 'jump dispersal' idea, a new study suggests that Darwin might have been correct.

Louisiana Tech University, CSC develop curriculum to support high-tech workforce needs
(Louisiana Tech University) Faculty from Louisiana Tech University's cyber engineering, computer science, and computer information systems programs, and research and development group hosted over 30 executives from CSC, a global leader in next-generation IT, last week for strategic curriculum workshops.

2.5 million to recognize and reduce cyber-attack threats to critical infrastructure
(Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council) New research co-funded by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council will focus on the cyber-security of the UK's vital industrial control systems which run, for example, manufacturing plants, power stations, the electricity grid, and the rail network. The research will help understand and mitigate threats from hackers or malware infiltrating the systems behind our critical national infrastructure.

Breakthrough study discovers 6 changing faces of 'global killer' bacteria
(University of Leicester) University of Leicester researchers unlock vital new information to improve vaccinations against pneumococcus infection.

Adding uncertainty to improve mathematical models
(Brown University) Mathematicians from Brown University have introduced a new element of uncertainty into an equation used to describe the behavior of fluid flows. While being as certain as possible is generally the stock and trade of mathematics, the researchers hope this new formulation might ultimately lead to mathematical models that better reflect the inherent uncertainties of the natural world.

At the interface of math and science
(University of California - Santa Barbara) In popular culture, mathematics is often deemed inaccessible or esoteric. Yet in the modern world, it plays an ever more important role in our daily lives and a decisive role in the discovery and development of new ideas -- often behind the scenes.

SIAM and ACM honor software developers for large-scale scientific computing toolkit
(Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics) The Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics and the Association for Computing Machinery are pleased to present the SIAM/ACM Prize in Computational Science and Engineering to the PETSc core development team for the development of Portable Extensible Toolkit for Scientific Computation, a suite of data structures and routines intended for use in large-scale application projects.
