  • Doniec, Marek Wojciech; Vasilescu, Iuliu; Detweiler, Carrick; Rus, Daniela L. (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2010-05)
    e present a control algorithm for autonomous underwater robots with modular thruster configuration. The algorithm can handle arbitrary thruster configurations. It maintains the robot's desired attitude while solving for ...
  • Poterba, James M.; Stock, Wendy A.; Siegfried, John J.; Finegan, T. Aldrich; Colander, David; Mankiw, N. Gregory (American Economic Association, 2011-05)
    This paper describes the progress, eight years after matriculating, of 586 individuals who entered one of 27 economics Ph.D. programs in fall 2002. By October 2010, 59 percent of the fall 2002 entering cohort had earned a ...
  • Ng, Chris T. K.; Medard, Muriel; Ozdaglar, Asuman E. (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2009-08)
    A wireless packet network is considered in which each user transmits a stream of packets to its destination. The transmit power of each user interferes with the transmission of all other users. A convex cost function of ...
  • Kausel, Eduardo A. (American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE), 2009-10)
    This paper addresses the use of complex frequencies in problems of wave propagation and structural vibrations. The most common form of application is as artificial damping that is extracted after the response in the time ...
  • Akbergenova, Yulia; Cho, Richard William; Littleton, J. Troy; Jorquera, Ramon A.; Huntwork-Rodriguez, Sarah (Society for Neuroscience, 2012-12)
    Neurotransmitter release following synaptic vesicle (SV) fusion is the fundamental mechanism for neuronal communication. Synaptic exocytosis is a specialized form of intercellular communication that shares a common ...
  • Caneva, T.; Silva, A.; Fazio, R.; Lloyd, Seth; Calarco, T.; Montangero, S. (American Physical Society, 2014-04)
    We demonstrate that arbitrary time evolutions of many-body quantum systems can be reversed even in cases when only part of the Hamiltonian can be controlled. The reversed dynamics obtained via optimal control—contrary to ...
  • Ahmadi, Amir Ali; Majumdar, Anirudha; Tedrake, Russell Louis (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2013-06)
    We show that for continuous time dynamical systems described by polynomial differential equations of modest degree (typically equal to three), the following decision problems which arise in numerous areas of systems and ...
  • Meyers, Carol A.; Schulz, Andreas S. (John Wiley & Sons, Inc., 2012-03)
    We investigate issues of complexity related to welfare maximization in congestion games. In particular, we provide a full classification of complexity results for the problem of finding a minimum cost solution to a congestion ...
  • Milanic, Martin; Orlin, James B.; Rudolf, Gabor (Springer Science + Business Media B.V., 2011-01)
    The class of equistable graphs is defined by the existence of a cost structure on the vertices such that the maximal stable sets are characterized by their costs. This graph class, not contained in any nontrivial hereditary ...
  • Wang, Yang; Xiao, Xinshu; Zhang, Jianming; Choudhury, Rajarshi; Li, Kai; Ma, Meng; Wang, Zefeng; Robertson, Alex De Jong; Burge, Christopher B. (Nature Publishing Group, 2012-12)
    To better understand splicing regulation, we used a cell-based screen to identify ten diverse motifs that inhibit splicing from introns. Motifs were validated in another human cell type and gene context, and their presence ...
  • Forsten-Williams, Kimberly; Kurtagic, Elma; Nugent, Matthew A. (BioMed Central Ltd, 2011-10)
    Background Vascular homeostasis and response to injury are dependent on the coordinated activity of growth factors such as vascular endothelial growth factor-A (VEGF). VEGF signaling is mediated by VEGF receptors 1 (VEGFR1) ...
  • Hamilton, Catrina M.; Johns-Krull, Christopher M.; Mundt, Reinhard; Herbst, William; Winn, Joshua Nathan (IOP Publishing, 2012-05)
    We have obtained 48 high-resolution echelle spectra of the pre-main-sequence eclipsing binary system KH 15D (V582 Mon, P = 48.37 days, e ~ 0.6, M[subscript A] = 0.6 M [subscript ☉], MB = 0.7 M [subscript ☉]). The eclipses ...
  • Karges, J.; Wood, R. J.; Gilpin, Kyle W.; Rus, Daniela L.; Torres-Jara, E. (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2010-12)
    We have presented a simple but effective method to design flexible actuators. This process relies on understanding the behavior of a simple unit cell element built out of SMA sheet. The unit cell effectively uses the ...
  • Kosuri, Sriram; Goodman, Daniel Bryan; Cambray, Guillaume; Mutalik, Vivek K.; Gao, Yuan; Arkin, Adam P.; Endy, Drew; Church, George M. (National Academy of Sciences (U.S.), 2013-08)
    The inability to predict heterologous gene expression levels precisely hinders our ability to engineer biological systems. Using well-characterized regulatory elements offers a potential solution only if such elements ...
  • Garcia-Beltran, Wilfredo F.; Ai-Ling, Michelle Lim; Hammond, Paula T.; Irvine, Darrell J.; DeMuth, Peter Charles (Wiley Blackwell, 2012-08)
    Transcutaneous administration has the potential to improve therapeutics delivery, providing an approach that is safer and more convenient than traditional alternatives, while offering the opportunity for improved therapeutic ...
  • Nevidomskyy, Andriy H.; Coleman, Piers; Flint, Rebecca (American Physical Society (APS), 2011-08)
    Using a two-channel Anderson model, we develop a theory of composite pairing in the 115 family of heavy fermion superconductors that incorporates the effects of f-electron valence fluctuations. Our calculations introduce ...
  • Hirose, Masashi; Cappellaro, Paola; Aiello, Clarice Demarchi (Nature Publishing Group, 2013-01)
    The sensitivity of quantum magnetometer is challenged by control errors and, especially in the solid state, by their short coherence times. Refocusing techniques can overcome these limitations and improve the sensitivity ...
  • Pan, Wei; Aharony, Nadav; Pentland, Alex Paul; Wei Pan (AAAI Publications, 2011)
    We have carefully instrumented a large portion of the population living in a university graduate dormitory by giving participants Android smart phones running our sensing software. In this paper, we propose the novel problem ...
  • Su, Linhui Julie; Auluck, Pavan K.; Outeiro, Tiago Fleming; Yeger-Lotem, Esti; Kritzer, Joshua A.; Tardiff, Daniel F.; Bell, George W.; Fraenkel, Ernest; Lindquist, Susan; Strathearn, Katherine E.; Liu, Fang; Cao, Songsong; Hamamichi, Shusei; Hill, Kathryn J.; Caldwell, Kim A.; Cooper, Antony A.; Caldwell, Guy A.; McCaffery, J. Michael; Rochet, Jean-Christophe (Company of Biologists Limited, 2010-01)
    α-Synuclein (α-syn) is a small lipid-binding protein involved in vesicle trafficking whose function is poorly characterized. It is of great interest to human biology and medicine because α-syn dysfunction is associated ...
