  • England, Philip C.; Walker, Richard T.; Fu, Bihong; Floyd, Mike (Elsevier B.V., 2013-08)
    Palaeoshorelines around four large lakes in central Tibet record a latest-Pleistocene-to-Holocene high stand during which the lakes were filled 150–200 m more deeply than they are at present. GPS measurements of shoreline ...
  • Fox, Jacob; Conlon, David (Springer-Verlag, 2012-08)
    We show, for any positive integer k, that there exists a graph in which any equitable partition of its vertices into k parts has at least ck [superscript 2]/log* k pairs of parts which are not ϵ -regular, where c,ϵ>0 are ...
  • Ghaffari, Mohsen; Haeupler, Bernhard; Newport, Calvin Charles; Lynch, Nancy Ann (Springer-Verlag, 2012)
    The local broadcast problem assumes that processes in a wireless network are provided messages, one by one, that must be delivered to their neighbors. In this paper, we prove tight bounds for this problem in two well-studied ...
  • Medard, Muriel; Christiansen, Mark M.; Duffy, Ken R.; Tessaro, Stefano; Calmon, Flavio du Pin; Varia, Mayank H. (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2013-10)
    Lower bounds for the average probability of error of estimating a hidden variable X given an observation of a correlated random variable Y, and Fano's inequality in particular, play a central role in information theory. ...
  • Huang, Dennis; Webb, Tatiana A.; Fang, Shiang; Song, Can-Li; Kaxiras, Efthimios; Hoffman, Jennifer E.; Chang, Cui-zu; Moodera, Jagadeesh (American Physical Society, 2016-03)
    We use scanning tunneling microscopy (STM) and quasiparticle interference (QPI) imaging to investigate the low-energy orbital texture of single-layer FeSe/SrTiO[subscript 3]. We develop a T-matrix model of multiorbital QPI ...
  • Baym, Michael Hartmann; West, Douglas B. (Springer Science+Business Media, 2012-11)
    Trotter conjectured that dimP×Q≥dimP+dimQ−2 for all posets P and Q. To shed light on this, we study the k-dimension of products of finite orders. For k ∈ o(ln n), the value 2dimk(P)−dimk(P×P) is unbounded when P is an ...
  • Luders, Brandon Douglas; Karaman, Sertac; Frazzoli, Emilio; How, Jonathan P. (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2010-07)
    This paper considers the real-time motion planning problem for autonomous systems subject to complex dynamics, constraints, and uncertainty. Rapidly-exploring random trees (RRT) can be used to efficiently construct trees ...
  • Hsu, Chia Wei; Stone, A. Douglas; Zhen, Bo; Joannopoulos, John; Soljacic, Marin (Nature Publishing Group, 2016-07)
    Bound states in the continuum (BICs) are waves that remain localized even though they coexist with a continuous spectrum of radiating waves that can carry energy away. Their very existence defies conventional wisdom. ...
  • Vernier, Eric; Pekker, David; Zwierlein, Martin Wolfram; Demier, Eugene (American Physical Society, 2011-03)
    We consider a localized impurity atom that interacts with a cloud of fermions in the paired state. We develop an effective scattering length description of the interaction between an impurity and a fermionic atom using ...
  • Wang, Chong (American Physical Society, 2015-06)
    We propose a simple theoretical construction of certain short-range entangled phases of interacting fermions, by putting the bound states of three fermions (which we refer to as clustons) into topological bands. We give ...
  • Schneider, Christian Michael; Kesselring, Tobias A.; Jose, Andrade, S. Jr.; Herrmann, Hans J. (American Physical Society, 2012-07)
    The self-similarity of complex networks is typically investigated through computational algorithms, the primary task of which is to cover the structure with a minimal number of boxes. Here we introduce a box-covering ...
  • Goh, Siong Thye; Rudin, Cynthia (Association for Computing Machinery (ACM), 2014-08)
    The vast majority of real world classification problems are imbalanced, meaning there are far fewer data from the class of interest (the positive class) than from other classes. We propose two machine learning algorithms ...
  • Zhou, Yahan; Sueda, Shinjiro; Matusik, Wojciech; Shamir, Ariel (Association for Computing Machinery (ACM), 2014-07)
    We present a method for transforming a 3D object into a cube or a box using a continuous folding sequence. Our method produces a single, connected object that can be physically fabricated and folded from one shape to the ...
  • Ashkenazy, Yosef; Stone, Peter H.; Rizzoli, Paola M. (Elsevier, 2012-02)
    In ∼1990 a new source of deep water formation in the Eastern Mediterranean was found in the southern part of the Aegean sea. Till then, the only source of deep water formation in the Eastern Mediterranean was in the Adriatic ...
  • Aaronson, Scott (Association for Computing Machinery, 2010)
    The relationship between BQP and PH has been an open problem since the earliest days of quantum computing. We present evidence that quantum computers can solve problems outside the entire polynomial hierarchy, by relating ...
  • Hare, Caspar (University of Chicago Press, 2011-07)
    Many philosophers writing about death have adopted a strikingly cheery and optimistic tone. Their goal has been to show us that, though we may lack immortal souls, we should still regard the oblivion hurtling toward us ...
  • Manavski, Yosif; Bennewitz, Katrin; Tang, Zhongshu; Zhang, Fan; Sakurai, Atsuko; Li, Xuri; Kroll, Jens; Dimmeler, Stefanie; Chavakis, Emmanouil; Zeiher, Andreas M.; Gutkind, J. Silvio; Carmona, Guillaume (Springer-Verlag, 2014-02)
    β1-Integrins are essential for angiogenesis. The mechanisms regulating integrin function in endothelial cells (EC) and their contribution to angiogenesis remain elusive. Brag2 is a guanine nucleotide exchange factor for ...
  • Frishman, Sagi; Gumennik, Alexander; Ilan, Har’el; Agranat, Aharon J. (Springer Berlin Heidelberg, 2013-07)
    Electro-optically tunable transmission grating was imprinted in potassium lithium tantalate niobate by irreversible spatial patterning of the dielectric constant. While embedded into waveguided architecture, it provides a ...
  • Alam, Mohammad-Reza; Liu, Yuming; Yue, Dick K. P. (Cambridge University Press, 2009-03)
    We develop a direct numerical method to study the general problem of nonlinear interactions of surface/interfacial waves with variable bottom topography in a two-layer density stratified fluid. We extend a powerful high-order ...
  • Alam, Mohammad-Reza; Liu, Yuming; Yue, Dick K. P. (Cambridge University Press, 2009-04)
    We investigate, via perturbation analyses, the mechanisms of nonlinear resonant interaction of surface-interfacial waves with a rippled bottom in a two-layer density-stratified fluid. As in a one-layer fluid, three classes ...
