  • Kaduk, Benjamin J.; Van Voorhis, Troy (American Institute of Physics, 2010-08)
    The constrained density functional theory–configuration interaction (CDFT-CI) method has previously been used to calculate ground-state energies and barrier heights. In this work, it is examined for use in computing ...
  • Williams, Timothy H.; Crucioli, David A.; Wilcox, William E., Jr.; Volpicelli, Alicia M.; Murphy, Robert J. (The International Society for Optical Engineering, 2009-08)
    Free space optical communication systems require robust pointing and tracking to establish and maintain lineof- sight (LOS). Atmospheric scintillation can present a challenge to the LOS tracking systems located at each end ...
  • Taylor, Joshua A.; Hover, Franz S. (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2011-08)
    We apply lift-and-project type relaxations for polynomial optimization problems to AC transmission system planning, and obtain new second-order cone and semidefinite models. The models are compared to linear and nonlinear ...
  • Ishii, Akio; Li, Ju; Ogata, Shigenobu (Public Library of Science, 2013-04)
    Dislocation pipe diffusion seems to be a well-established phenomenon. Here we demonstrate an unexpected effect, that the migration of interstitials such as carbon in iron may be accelerated not in the dislocation line ...
  • Rochat, Sebastien; Swager, Timothy Manning (American Chemical Society (ACS), 2013-05)
    Thanks to their unique optical and electrochemical properties, conjugated polymers have attracted considerable attention over the last two decades and resulted in numerous technological innovations. In particular, their ...
  • Swager, Timothy Manning; Dane, Eric L.; King, Sarah B. (American Chemical Society (ACS), 2010-05)
    Thioether-containing poly(para-phenylene-ethynylene) (PPE) copolymers show a strong fluorescence turn-on response when exposed to oxidants in solution as a result of the selective conversion of thioether substituents into ...
  • Larson, Alyssa Maxine; Wang, Hongmei; Cao, Yang; Jiang, Taijiao; Chen, Jianzhu; Klibanov, Alexander M. (Wiley Blackwell, 2012-07)
    Using the plaque reduction assay, relatively simple bicyclic quinone molecules, as well as multiple copies thereof covalently attached to a long polyglutamate-based polymeric chain, were examined as new inhibitors of various ...
  • Reed, David P.; Lippman, Andrew B.; Shen, Dawei; Lee, Kwan Hong; Schumacher, Hans D. (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2009-02)
    In this paper, we present the Connected Consumption Network (CCN) that allows a community of consumers to collaboratively sense the market from a mobile device, enabling more informed financial decisions in geo-local ...
  • Berardo, D.; Barbaro, M. B.; Cenni, R.; Molinari, A.; Donnelly, T. William (American Physical Society (APS), 2011-11)
    We reexamine several issues related to the physics of scaling in electron scattering from nuclei. A basic model is presented in which an assumed form for the momentum distribution having both long- and short-range contributions ...
  • Runstadler, Jonathan; Keogh, Mandy; Hill, Nichola J.; Hussein, Islam; Puryear, Wendy Blay (Elsevier, 2013-03)
    Continuing outbreaks of pathogenic (H5N1) and pandemic (SOIVH1N1) influenza have underscored the need to understand the origin, characteristics, and evolution of novel influenza A virus (IAV) variants that pose a threat ...
  • Gattass, Ricardo; Soares, Juliana G. M.; Desimone, Robert; Ungerleider, Leslie G. (Frontiers Research Foundation, 2014-05)
    The claustrum is a surprisingly large, sheet-like neuronal structure hidden beneath the inner surface of the neocortex. We found that the portions of the claustrum connected with V4 appear to overlap considerably with those ...
  • Spiridonov, Alexey Nikolaevich; Shabalina, Svetlana A.; Spiridonov, Nikolay A.; Koonin, Eugene V. (Oxford University Press (OUP), 2010-10)
    The majority of mammalian genes produce multiple transcripts resulting from alternative splicing (AS) and/or alternative transcription initiation (ATI) and alternative transcription termination (ATT). Comparative analysis ...
  • Daskalakis, Constantinos; Dimakis, Alexandros G.; Mossel, Elchanan (Institute of Mathematical Statistics, 2011)
    We study how the structure of the interaction graph of a game affects the existence of pure Nash equilibria. In particular, for a fixed interaction graph, we are interested in whether there are pure Nash equilibria arising ...
  • Choi, Han-Lim; Brunet, Luc; How, Jonathan P. (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2009-06)
    This paper addresses task allocation to coordinate a fleet of autonomous vehicles by presenting two decentralized algorithms: the consensus-based auction algorithm (CBAA) and its generalization to the multi-assignment ...
  • Kellis, Manolis; Lin, Michael F. (Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory Press, 2009-04)
    Effective use of the human and mouse genomes requires reliable identification of genes and their products. Although multiple public resources provide annotation, different methods are used that can result in similar but ...
  • Kerr, William R.; Lerner, Josh; Schoar, Antoinette (Oxford University Press on behalf of The Society for Financial Studies, 2011-10)
    This article documents the fact that ventures funded by two successful angel groups experience superior outcomes to rejected ventures: They have improved survival, exits, employment, patenting, Web traffic, and financing. ...
  • Acemoglu, Daron; Cantoni, Davide; Johnson, Simon; Robinson, James A. (American Economic Association, 2011-01)
    The French Revolution had a momentous impact on neighboring countries. It removed the legal and economic barriers protecting oligarchies, established the principle of equality before the law, and prepared economies for ...
  • Shay, Tal; Jojic, Vladimir; Zuk, Or; Rothamel, Katherine; Puyraimond-Zemmour, David; Feng, Ting; Wakamatsu, Ei; Benoist, Cristophe; Koller, Daphne; Regev, Aviv (National Academy of Sciences (U.S.), 2013-02)
    Much of the knowledge about cell differentiation and function in the immune system has come from studies in mice, but the relevance to human immunology, diseases, and therapy has been challenged, perhaps more from anecdotal ...
  • Wei, Shuo; Xu, Guofeng; Bridges, Lance C.; Shah, Anoop; White, Judith M.; DeSimone, Douglas W.; Whittaker, Charles A. (Springer (Biomed Central Ltd.), 2010-07)
    Background Members of the disintegrin metalloproteinase (ADAM) family play important roles in cellular and developmental processes through their functions as proteases and/or binding partners for other proteins. The ...
  • Chiu, Edmond Kwan-Yu; Wang, Qiqi; Hu, Rui; Jameson, Antony (Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics, 2012-11)
    We present a novel mesh-free scheme for solving partial differential equations. We first derive a conservative and stable formulation of mesh-free first derivatives. We then show that this formulation is a special case of ...
