  • Kaduk, Benjamin J.; Kowalczyk, Timothy Daniel; Van Voorhis, Troy (American Chemical Society (ACS), 2011-11)
  • Ho, Shih-Hao (American Physical Society (APS), 2011-09)
    We show that the recently considered McGreevy-Swingle model for Majorana fermions in the presence of a ’t Hooft-Polyakov magnetic monopole arises when the Jackiw-Rebbi model is constrained to be conjugation self dual.
  • Peters, Charee L.; Lopez, Laura A.; Ramirez-Ruiz, Enrico; Stassun, Keivan G.; Figueroa-Feliciano, Enectali (American Astronomical Society, 2013-07)
    Determination of the explosion type of supernova remnants (SNRs) can be challenging, as SNRs are hundreds to thousands of years old and supernovae are classified based on spectral properties days after explosion. Previous ...
  • Yunes, Nicolas; Mirshekari, Saeed; Will, Clifford M. (American Physical Society, 2012-01)
    Modified gravity theories generically predict a violation of Lorentz invariance, which may lead to a modified dispersion relation for propagating modes of gravitational waves. We construct a parametrized dispersion relation ...
  • Stein, David B.; Schoen, T. Ryan; Rus, Daniela L. (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2011-12)
    This paper presents a constraint-aware decentralized approach to construction with teams of robots. We present an extension to existing work on a distributed controller for robotic construction of simple structures. Our ...
  • Mitros, Piotr (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2008-06)
    We describe a methodology for solving convex constraint problems using analog circuits. We demonstrate how this methodology can be used to design circuits that solve function-fitting problems through iterated gradient ...
  • Hagelstein, Peter L. (Springer-Verlag, 2010-02)
    In recent Fleischmann–Pons experiments carried out by different groups, a thermal signal is seen indicative of excess energy production of a magnitude much greater than can be accounted for by chemistry. Correlated with ...
  • Rahi, Sahand Jamal; Kardar, Mehran (American Physical Society, 2010-08)
    We examine whether fluctuation-induced forces can lead to stable levitation. First, we analyze a collection of classical objects at finite temperature that contain fixed and mobile charges and show that any arrangement in ...
  • Yamamoto, R. K.; Zhao, M.; Taylor, Frank E.; Spitznagel, M.; Sciolla, Gabriella; Koeneke, K.; Dujmic, Denis; Cowan, Ray Franklin; Fisher, Peter H. (American Physical Society, 2009-04)
    We present constraints on the angle gamma of the unitarity triangle with a Dalitz analysis of neutral D decays to K[subscript S]pi+pi- from the processes B0-->D[over-bar] 0K*0 (B[over-bar] 0-->D0K[over-bar] *0) and ...
  • Shillington, Donna J.; Van Avendonk, Harm J. A.; Behn, Mark D.; Kelemen, Peter B.; Jagoutz, Oliver E. (American Geophysical Union, 2013-06)
    Determining the bulk composition of island arc lower crust is essential for distinguishing between competing models for arc magmatism and assessing the stability of arc lower crust. We present new constraints on the ...
  • D'Eramo, Francesco (American Physical Society, 2009-07)
    The strongly coupled standard model predicts a rich spectrum of excited states at the Fermi scale. We study the first radial excitations of the vector-bosons. The inclusion of these new states affects the low-energy ...
  • Miller, J. M.; Parker, M. L.; Fuerst, F.; Bachetti, M.; Barret, D.; Grefenstette, B. W.; Tendulkar, S.; Harrison, F. A.; Boggs, S. E.; Chakrabarty, Deepto; Christensen, F. E.; Craig, W. W.; Fabian, A. C.; Hailey, C. J.; Natalucci, L.; Paerels, F.; Rana, V.; Stern, D. K.; Tomsick, J. A.; Zhang, W. W. (American Astronomical Society, 2013-12)
    We report on an observation of the neutron star low-mass X-ray binary Serpens X-1, made with NuSTAR. The extraordinary sensitivity afforded by NuSTAR facilitated the detection of a clear, robust, relativistic Fe K emission ...
  • Petillo, Stephanie Marie; Schmidt, Henrik; Balasuriya, Arjuna Prabhath (Hindawi Publishing Corporation, 2012-01)
    In recent years, there has been significant concern about the impacts of offshore oil spill plumes and harmful algal blooms on the coastal ocean environment and biology, as well as on the human populations adjacent to these ...
  • Wang, Ling; Poilblanc, Didier; Gu, Zheng-Cheng; Wen, Xiao-Gang; Verstraete, Frank (American Physical Society, 2013-07)
    We construct a class of projected entangled pair states which is exactly the resonating valence bond wave functions endowed with both short range and long range valence bonds. With an energetically preferred resonating ...
  • Rosales, Rodolfo R.; Kasimov, Aslan R.; Flynn, Morris R.; Seibold, Benjamin (American Institute of Mathematical Sciences (AIMS), 2013-10)
    Fundamental diagrams of vehicular traffic flow are generally multi-valued in the congested flow regime. We show that such set-valued fundamental diagrams can be constructed systematically from simple second order macroscopic ...
  • Yuan, Haidong; Zeier, Robert; Khaneja, Navin; Lloyd, Seth (American Physical Society, 2009-04)
    Couplings between quantum systems are frequently less robust and harder to implement than controls on individual systems; thus, constructing quantum gates with minimal interactions is an important problem in quantum ...
  • Lanman, Douglas; Wetzstein, Gordon; Raskar, Ramesh; Hirsch, Matthew W. (IOP Publishing, 2013-02)
    Near-term commercial multi-view displays currently employ ray-based 3D or 4D light field techniques. Conventional approaches to ray-based display typically include lens arrays or heuristic barrier patterns combined with ...
  • Bliss, Nadya T.; Sun, Zachary; Ni, Karl S.; Snavely, Noah (SPIE, 2010-01)
    This paper proposes a trainable computer vision approach for visual object registration relative to a collection of training images obtained a priori. The algorithm first identifies whether or not the image belongs to the ...
  • Srinivas, Anand; Zussman, Gil; Modiano, Eytan H. (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers / Association for Computing Machinery, 2009-02)
    We study a novel hierarchical wireless networking approach in which some of the nodes are more capable than others. In such networks, the more capable nodes can serve as mobile backbone nodes and provide a backbone over ...
  • Hines, James; Malone, Thomas W.; Goncalves, Paulo; Herman, George; Quimby, John; Murphy-Hoye, Mary; Rice, James Blayney; Patten, James; Ishii, Hiroshi (John Wiley & Sons, Inc., 2010-07)
    Simulation modeling can be valuable in many areas of management science, but it is often costly, time-consuming, and difficult to do. To reduce these problems, system dynamics researchers have previously developed standard ...
