           MATHEMATICS: AN OVERVIEW OF NSF RESEARCH

    http://www.nsf.gov/news/overviews/mathematics/index.jsp

  "Mathematics is about numbers, shapes, symmetry, chance,
  change, and more...." The National Science Foundation lists
  some of the major research topics now being explored in the
  area of mathematics:

    - Assembling Information into a Big Picture
    - Managing and Modeling Complexity
    - Deciding on the Best Choice
    - Pattern Hunting and Statistical Learning

  Other links on the mathematics section of their site
  include:

                           FATHOM 2

                http://www.keypress.com/fathom/

  William Finzer of KCP Technologies has recently announced,
  "Fathom just got better! Four years of work by the
  development team has resulted in Fathom Dynamic Data Software,
  Version 2...."

  This software for exploring data now lets you:

    - Add five-number summaries to a summary table by menu
      command
    - Create correlation matrices by dragging multiple,
      continuous attributes to summary tables
    - Use the Linear Model tool to create simple and multiple
      regression models
    - Use functions such as linRegrPredicted and
      logRelativeError to create visualizations

  Access U.S. census microdata from 1850 to 2000, with more
  than 50 attributes. Fathom's 329 sample documents, which
  include more than 100 new sample documents, are listed with
  descriptions in the help system, from which you can open them
  directly. Use the "URL-drop" method of importing data from
  web pages for a wide variety of sites.

  Recognizing more than 90 units of measure, Fathom 2 lets you
  convert from one system to another, and use units in
  algebraic formulas with simplification.
