  • Hawkins, Peter; Aiken, Alex; Fisher, Kathleen; Rinard, Martin C.; Sagiv, Mooly (Association for Computing Machinery (ACM), 2012-06)
    We describe an approach for synthesizing data representations for concurrent programs. Our compiler takes as input a program written using concurrent relations and synthesizes a representation of the relations as sets of ...
  • Kaess, Michael; Williams, Stephen; Indelman, Vadim; Roberts, Richard; Leonard, John Joseph; Dellaert, Frank (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2012-07)
    This paper presents a novel algorithm for integrating real-time filtering of navigation data with full map/trajectory smoothing. Unlike conventional mapping strategies, the result of loop closures within the smoother serve ...
  • Miljkovic, Nenad; Wang, Evelyn N. (Cambridge University Press (Materials Research Society), 2013-05)
    Condensation is a phase change phenomenon often encountered in nature, as well as used in industry for applications including power generation, thermal management, desalination, and environmental control. For the past eight ...
  • Nenad, Miljkovic; Rong, Xiao; Ryan, Enright; Ian, McKay; Preston, Daniel John; Wang, Evelyn N.; Miljkovic, Nenad; Xiao, Rong; Enright, Ryan; McKay, Ian (ASME International, 2013-07)
    Color images of steady state water vapor condensing on smooth and nanostructured hydrophobic surfaces are presented. Figure 1a shows a snapshot of classical filmwise condensation on hydrophilic copper. A thin liquid film ...
  • Enright, Ryan; Miljkovic, Nenad; Nam, Youngsuk; Wang, Evelyn N.; Dou, Nicholas G. (ASME International, 2012-03)
    Condensation is an important process in both emerging and traditional power generation and water desalination technologies. Superhydrophobic nanostructures promise enhanced condensation heat transfer by reducing the ...
  • Enright, Ryan; Miljkovic, Nenad; Thompson, Carl V.; Wang, Evelyn N.; Al-Obeidi, Ahmed F. (American Chemical Society (ACS), 2012-08)
    Water condensation on surfaces is a ubiquitous phase-change process that plays a crucial role in nature and across a range of industrial applications, including energy production, desalination, and environmental control. ...
  • Shibata, Wataru; Takaishi, Shigeo; Muthupalani, Sureshkumar; Pritchard, D. Mark; Whary, Mark T.; Rogers, Arlin B.; Fox, James G.; Betz, Kelly S.; Kaestner, Klaus H.; Karin, Michael; Wang, Timothy C. (Elsevier B.V., 2009-12)
    Background & Aims: The nuclear factor κB (NF-κB)/IκB-kinase-β (IKKβ) pathway has been shown to represent a key link between inflammation and cancer, inducing pro-inflammatory cytokines in myeloid cells and anti-apoptotic ...
  • Liu, Yan; Carbonell, Jaime; Gopalakrishnan, Vanathi; Weigele, Peter (Mary Ann Liebert, Inc., 2009-05)
    Determining protein structures is crucial to understanding the mechanisms of infection and designing drugs. However, the elucidation of protein folds by crystallographic experiments can be a bottleneck in the development ...
  • DuPage, Michel; Brauneis, Alison L.; Jacks, Tyler E. (Nature Publishing Group, 2009-06)
    The development of animal models of lung cancer is critical to our understanding and treatment of the human disease. Conditional mouse models provide new opportunities for testing novel chemopreventatives, therapeutics and ...
  • Baek, Hyoung Su; Demanet, Laurent (IOP Publishing, 2012-04)
    This paper revisits the problem of recovering a smooth, isotropic, layered wave speed profile from surface traveltime information. While it is classic knowledge that the diving (refracted) rays classically determine the ...
  • Entekhabi, Dara; Wojcik, Rafal; McLaughlin, Dennis; Konings, Alexandra G. (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, IEEE Geoscience and Remote Sensing Society, 2009-05)
    Temporally and spatially variable rainfall replicates are frequently required in hydrologic applications of ensemble forecasting and data assimilation. Ensemble methods can be expected to work better when the rainfall ...
  • Guerrero, R.; Aliev, F. G.; Villar, R.; Santos, Tiffany S.; Moodera, Jagadeesh; Dugaev, V. K.; Barnas, J. (American Physical Society, 2010-01)
    We report on dependence of conductance and tunnelling magnetoresistance on bias voltage at different temperatures down to 2 K in Co|Al[subscript 2]O[subscript 3](10 Å)|Si(δ)|Al[subscript 2]O[subscript 3](2 Å)|Permalloy ...
  • Mazzeo, G.; Yablonovitch, E.; Jiang, H. W.; Bai, Y.; Fitzgerald, Eugene A. (American Institute of Physics (AIP), 2010-05)
    Germanium rich heterostructures can constitute a valid alternative to Silicon for the confinement of single electron spins. The conduction band discontinuity in SiGe/Ge heterostructures grown on pure germanium substrate ...
  • Brenner, Howard (American Physical Society, 2014-04)
    “Diffuse interface” theories for single-component fluids—dating back to van der Waals, Korteweg, Cahn-Hilliard, and many others—are currently based upon an ad hoc combination of thermodynamic principles (built largely upon ...
  • Liu, Sheng; Liu, Yang; Cebeci, Hulya Geyik; Guzman de Villoria, Roberto; Lin, Jun-Hong; Wardle, Brian L. (SPIE, 2010-04)
    Several generations of ionic polymer metal composite (IPMC) actuators have been developed since 1992. It has been discovered that the composite electrodes which are composed of electronic and ionic conductors, have great ...
  • Ruppel, Carolyn; Scandella, Benjamin; Varadharajan, Charuleka; Hemond, Harold F.; Juanes, Ruben (American Geophysical Union, 2011-03)
    Methane is a potent greenhouse gas, but its effects on Earth's climate remain poorly constrained, in part due to uncertainties in global methane fluxes to the atmosphere. An important source of atmospheric methane is the ...
  • Mancini, Stefano; Braunstein, Samuel L.; Pirandola, Stefano; Lloyd, Seth (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2009-03)
    We consider the problem of privacy in direct communications, showing how quantum mechanics can be useful to guarantee a certain level of confidentiality. In particular, we review a continuous variable approach recently ...
  • Bubis, Roy; Kantor, Yacov; Kardar, Mehran (IOP Publishing, 2009-11)
    We study polymers attached to spherical (circular) or paraboloidal (parabolic) probes in three (two) dimensions. Both self-avoiding and random walks are examined numerically. The behavior of a polymer of size R[subscript ...
  • Gorsky, A.; Shifman, Mikhail; Yung, A. (American Physical Society, 2011-04)
    Non-Abelian strings exist in the color-flavor locked phase of dense QCD. We show that kinks appearing in the world-sheet theory on these strings, in the form of the kink-antikink bound pairs, are the magnetic monopoles—descendants ...
  • Nishida, Yusuke; Tan, Shina (American Physical Society, 2009-06)
    A Fermi-Fermi mixture of 40K and 6Li does not exhibit the Efimov effect in a free space, but the Efimov effect can be induced by confining only 40K in one dimension. Here the Efimov’s three-body parameter is controlled by ...
