  • Rutishauser, Ueli; Slotine, Jean-Jacques E.; Douglas, Rodney J. (MIT Press, 2012-06)
    Models of cortical neuronal circuits commonly depend on inhibitory feedback to control gain, provide signal normalization, and selectively amplify signals using winner-take-all (WTA) dynamics. Such models generally assume ...
  • Zuhl, Andrea M.; Mohr, Justin T.; Bachovchin, Daniel A.; Niessen, Sherry; Hsu, Ku-Lung; Berlin, Jacob M.; Dochnahl, Maximilian; Fu, Gregory C.; Cravatt, Benjamin F.; Lopez-Alberca, Maria P. (American Chemical Society (ACS), 2012-03)
    Serine hydrolases are one of the largest and most diverse enzyme classes in Nature. Most serine hydrolases lack selective inhibitors, which are valuable probes for assigning functions to these enzymes. We recently discovered ...
  • Aich, Udayanath; Shriver, Zachary H.; Tharakaraman, Kannan; Raman, Rahul; Sasisekharan, Ram (American Chemical Society, 2011-08)
    Heparin and the low molecular weight heparins are extensively used as medicinal products to prevent and treat the formation of venous and arterial thrombi. In early 2008, administration of some heparin lots was associated ...
  • Parrilo, Pablo A.; Candogan, Utku Ozan; Menache, Ishai; Ozdaglar, Asuman E. (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2009-06)
    We consider a wireless collision channel, shared by a finite number of mobile users who transmit to a common base station. Each user wishes to optimize its individual network utility that incorporates a natural tradeoff ...
  • Schneider, Ben Ross; Karcher, Sebastian (Oxford University Press and the Society for the Advancement of Socio-Economics, 2010-10)
    In a comparative institutional or ‘variety of capitalism’ perspective, the distinctive traits of labour markets in Latin America differ in most respects from labour markets in developed countries. Moreover, there are strong ...
  • Ruppin, F.; Strigari, L.; Billard, Julien; Figueroa-Feliciano, Enectali (American Physical Society, 2014-10)
    Direct detection dark matter experiments looking for WIMP-nucleus elastic scattering will soon be sensitive to an irreducible background from neutrinos which will drastically affect their discovery potential. Here we explore ...
  • Ahmadi, Amir Ali; Parrilo, Pablo A. (Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics, 2013-05)
    Our first contribution in this paper is to prove that three natural sum of squares (sos) based sufficient conditions for convexity of polynomials, via the definition of convexity, its first order characterization, and its ...
  • Chen, Xie; Gu, Zheng-Cheng; Wen, Xiao-Gang (American Physical Society, 2011-12)
    Quantum phases with different orders exist with or without breaking the symmetry of the system. Recently, a classification of gapped quantum phases which do not break time reversal, parity, or on-site unitary symmetry has ...
  • Bronson, R T; Haigis, K M; Cheung, Ann; Carter, Alia; Kostova, Kamena K.; Woodruff, Joe; Crowley, Denise G.; Jacks, Tyler E. (Nature Publishing Group, 2009-12)
    The adenomatous polyposis coli (APC) gene product is mutated in the vast majority of human colorectal cancers. APC negatively regulates the WNT pathway by aiding in the degradation of β-catenin, which is the transcription ...
  • Smith, Janet L.; Goldberg, Jonathan M.; Grossman, Alan D. (American Society for Microbiology, 2014-07)
    The Gram-positive bacterium Bacillus subtilis is widely used for studies of cellular and molecular processes. We announce the complete genomic sequences of strain AG174, our stock of the commonly used strain JH642, and ...
  • Ueda, Satoshi; Su, Mingjuan; Buchwald, Stephen Leffler (American Chemical Society (ACS), 2011-11)
    The completely N[superscript 1]-selective Pd-catalyzed arylation of unsymmetric imidazoles with aryl halides and triflates is described. This study showed that imidazoles have a strong inhibitory effect on the in situ ...
  • Debroni, Jennifer; Eblen, John D.; Langston, Michael A.; Myrvold, Wendy; Shor, Peter W.; Weerapurage, Dinesh (Association for Computing Machinery (ACM), 2011)
    A d-dimensional Keller graph has vertices which are numbered with each of the 4[superscript d] possible d-digit numbers (d-tuples) which have each digit equal to 0, 1, 2, or 3. Two vertices are adjacent if their labels ...
  • 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 ...
