Researchers revamp a common 'data structure' so that it will work with multicore chips.
A proper choice of business model plays a critical role in electric vehicle industry where many consumers are subject to range and resale anxieties. In particular, a combination of owning or leasing electric batteries and improving charging technology can reassure such skeptics and help increase the electric vehicle adoption, according to a new study in the Articles in Advance section of Manufacturing and Service Operations Management, a publication of the Institute for Operations Research and the Management Sciences.
Researchers at the University of Basel and the University of East Anglia were able to predict the interactions of cancer cells using game theory. Their results have been published by the scientific journal PNAS.
Preschool children with autism spectrum disorder differed from each other in symptom severity and adaptive functioning at the time of diagnosis and some of these differences appeared to increase by age 6, according to a study published online by JAMA Psychiatry.
New research has shed light on the complex exchange of parasitic worms between wildlife, rats and humans.
Two new reports from the Energy Department's National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) examine the economic options customers face when deciding how to finance commercial or residential solar energy systems. NREL analysts found that businesses that use low-cost financing to purchase a photovoltaic (PV) system and homeowners who use solar-specific loans can save up to 30 percent compared with consumers who lease a PV system through a conventional third-party owner.
Recent study in the Journal of Mathematical Behavior shows significant gains in the understanding of angles and angle measurements by elementary school students who performed body-based tasks while interacting with a Kinect for Windows mathematics program.
Considerable attention has been paid to how boys' educational achievements in science and math compare to girls' accomplishments in those areas, often leading to the assumption that boys outperform girls in these areas. Now, using international data, researchers at the University of Missouri and the University of Glasgow in Glasgow, Scotland, have determined that girls outperform boys in educational achievement in 70 percent of the countries they studied -- regardless of the level of gender, political, economic or social equality.
The risk of extreme La Niña events in the Pacific Ocean could double due to global warming, new research has shown.
New research from the University of East Anglia shows why many cancers are difficult to treat and come back following treatment. Scientists have shown that cancer cells cooperate with each other in the production of growth factors (molecules produced by the cancer cells that are essential for tumor progression). It is hoped that the findings will lead to a new type of treatment involving genetically modified cancer cells being reinserted into a tumor.
