## Math/Stat Moments

**What Makes Someone Good at Math?**

Ever been told "I'm just not a math person"? Ever thought that you were just born to do math. As it turns out, according to research from the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU), the math isn't in your genes but rather in your habits. The NTNU research finds that if you want to be really good at all types of math, you need to practice them all.

Professor Hermundur Sigmundsson, one of three researchers on this project, finds that basically, "You become good at exactly what you practice". So maybe the adage is right, practice really does make perfect math.

## Spotlight on AMS

**Professor Receives DOE Funding**

A CSM-led research team with principal investigator Paul Constantine has been funded by the U.S. Department of Energy's Advanced Scientific Computing Research program to improve he capabilities of data-inensive physical simulations such as climate simulations. Constantine's team will apply the methods they develop to real inverse problems in chemical kinetics and turbulent flame modeling.
