  • Hellwig, Christian; Lorenzoni, Guido (Econometric Society, 2009-07)
    We characterize equilibria with endogenous debt constraints for a general equilibrium economy with limited commitment in which the only consequence of default is losing the ability to borrow in future periods. First, we ...
  • Shim, Jongmin; Chen, Elizabeth R.; Bertoldi, Katia; Reis, Pedro Miguel; Perdigou, Claude (National Academy of Sciences (U.S.), 2012-03)
    We introduce a class of continuum shell structures, the Buckliball, which undergoes a structural transformation induced by buckling under pressure loading. The geometry of the Buckliball comprises a spherical shell patterned ...
  • Karger, David R.; Oh, Sewoong; Shah, Devavrat (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2011-09)
    Crowdsourcing systems, in which numerous tasks are electronically distributed to numerous "information piece- workers", have emerged as an effective paradigm for human- powered solving of large scale problems in domains ...
  • Karger, David R.; Oh, Sewoong; Shah, Devavrat (Institute for Operations Research and the Management Sciences (INFORMS), 2014-02)
    Crowdsourcing systems, in which numerous tasks are electronically distributed to numerous “information pieceworkers,” have emerged as an effective paradigm for human-powered solving of large-scale problems in domains such ...
  • Ketterle, Wolfgang; Connolly, Colin B.; Doyle, John M.; Doret, S. Charles (American Physical Society, 2009-09)
    We report the creation of a Bose-Einstein condensate using buffer-gas cooling, the first realization of Bose-Einstein condensation using a broadly general method which relies neither on laser cooling nor unique atom-surface ...
  • Larkoski, Andrew; Moult, Ian James; Neill, Duff Austin (American Physical Society, 2015-02)
    Distinguishing hadronically decaying boosted top quarks from massive QCD jets is an important challenge at the Large Hadron Collider. In this paper we use the power-counting method to study jet substructure observables ...
  • Russell, Bryan C.; Torralba, Antonio (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2009-08)
    In this paper, we wish to build a high quality database of images depicting scenes, along with their real-world three-dimensional (3D) coordinates. Such a database is useful for a variety of applications, including training ...
  • Correll, Nikolaus; Arechiga, Nikos; Bolger, Adrienne M.; Bollini, Mario A.; Charrow, Ben; Clayton, Adam; Dominguez, Felipe A.; Donahue, Kenneth M.; Dyar, Samuel S.; Johnson, Luke B.; Liu, Huan; Patrikalakis, Alexander; Robertson, Timothy; Smith, Jeremy; Soltero, Daniel Eduardo; Tanner, Melissa; White, Lauren L.; Rus, Daniela L. (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2009-12)
    This paper describes the architecture and implementation of a distributed autonomous gardening system. The garden is a mesh network of robots and plants. The gardening robots are mobile manipulators with an eye-in-hand ...
  • Bowring, Samuel A.; Bras, Rafael L.; Epstein, Ari W. (Springer Japan, 2009-03)
    Terrascope is a freshman learning community at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) in which teams of students work to find solutions to large ‘unsolvable’ problems and to communicate about those problems with ...
  • Cheeseman, Iain McPherson; Voeltz, Gia (American Society for Cell Biology, 2012-11)
    Setting up a new lab is an exciting but challenging prospect. We discuss our experiences in finding a path to tackle some of the key current questions in cell biology and the hurdles that we have encountered along the way.
  • Hammond, Paula T. (Elsevier, 2012-05)
    In this materials perspective, the promise of water based layer-by-layer (LbL) assembly as a means of generating drug-releasing surfaces for biomedical applications, from small molecule therapeutics to biologic drugs and ...
  • Stewart, Iain; Kolodrubetz, Daniel Walter; Moult, Ian James (Springer Berlin Heidelberg, 2016-05)
    On-shell helicity methods provide powerful tools for determining scattering amplitudes, which have a one-to-one correspondence with leading power helicity operators in the Soft-Collinear Effective Theory (SCET) away from ...
  • Morishige, Ashley Elizabeth; Laine, Hannu S.; Schön, Jonas; Haarahiltunen, Antti; Hofstetter, Jasmin; del Cañizo, Carlos; Schubert, Martin C.; Savin, Hele; Buonassisi, Anthony (Springer Berlin Heidelberg, 2015-07)
    An important aspect of Process Simulators for photovoltaics is prediction of defect evolution during device fabrication. Over the last twenty years, these tools have accelerated process optimization, and several Process ...
  • Batten, Christopher; Joshi, Ajay J.; Orcutt, Jason Scott; Khilo, Anatol M.; Moss, Benjamin Roy; Holzwarth, Charles W.; Popovic, Milos; Li, Hanqing; Smith, Henry Ignatius; Hoyt, Judy L.; Kaertner, Franz X.; Ram, Rajeev J.; Stojanovic, Vladimir Marko; Asanovic, Krste (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2009-07)
    Silicon photonics is a promising technology for addressing memory bandwidth limitations in future many-core processors. This article first introduces a new monolithic silicon-photonic technology, which uses a standard bulk ...
  • Sharp, Phillip A; Jangi, Mohini Rohit (Elsevier, 2014-10)
    Coherent splicing networks arise from many discrete splicing decisions regulated in unison. Here, we examine the properties of robust, context-specific splicing networks. We propose that a subset of key splicing regulators, ...
  • Clemens, Dennis; Ferber, Asaf; Glebov, Roman; Hefetz, Dan; Liebenau, Anita (Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics, 2015-09)
    For a tree T on n vertices, we study the Maker-Breaker game, played on the edge set of the complete graph on n vertices, which Maker wins as soon as the graph she builds contains a copy of T. We prove that if T has bounded ...
  • Donner, Tobias H.; Siegel, Markus; Fries, Pascal; Engel, Andreas K. (Elsevier B.V., 2009-09)
    Simple perceptual decisions are ideally suited for studying the sensorimotor transformations underlying flexible behavior 1 and 2. During perceptual detection, a noisy sensory signal is converted into a behavioral report ...
  • Zegras, P. Christopher (Sage Publication, 2010-07)
    This paper examines the relationships between the built environment—both ‘neighborhood’ design characteristics and relative location—and motor vehicle ownership and use in a rapidly motorising, developing city context, ...
  • Valencia, Diana; Guillot, Tristan; Parmentier, Vivien; Freedman, Richard S. (IOP Publishing, 2013-08)
    GJ 1214b stands out among the detected low-mass exoplanets, because it is, so far, the only one amenable to transmission spectroscopy. Up to date there is no consensus about the composition of its envelope although most ...
  • Fu, Liang; Hsieh, Timothy Hwa-wei (American Physical Society, 2014-09)
    A quantum phase transition is usually achieved by tuning physical parameters in a Hamiltonian at zero temperature. Here, we show that the ground state of a topological phase itself encodes critical properties of its ...
