"FFTW is a C subroutine library for computing the discrete Fourier transform (DFT) in one or more dimensions, of arbitrary input size, and of both real and complex data (as well as of even/odd data, i.e. the discrete cosine/sine transforms or DCT/DST).", so says the website. FFTW stands for "Fastest Fourier Transform in the West." *sigh*

Different Wikis are suitable for different things. TWiki has the best features, but really needs some crafting in terms of appearance. MediaWiki is easily to deploy, is attractive, but is not structured. If you need a structured Wiki with workspaces you'll might want Confluence. If you want community development in an unstructured manner, you want MediaWiki. If you want separate webs, structure, but also community development, go for TWiki - and then reskin it.

UltraScan "attempts to be a comprehensive data analysis tool for the hydrodynamic studies of macromolecules and macromolecular assemblies with analytical ultracentrifugation experiments."
Sounds like fun. Let's install it. Get the tarball, ignore the part of the site which uses frames and extract in a sensible place, such as /usr/local/src/ULTRASCAN (
tar xvf ultrascan-9.9-888-qt-3.3.8-ix86-linux.tar.gz).
