  • Lozano-Perez, Tomas; Wong, Lok Sang Lawson; Kaelbling, Leslie P. (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2012-05)
    In state estimation, we often want the maximum likelihood estimate of the current state. For the commonly used joint multivariate Gaussian distribution over the state space, this can be efficiently found using a Kalman ...
  • Roland, Gunther M.; Alver, Burak Han (American Physical Society, 2010-05)
    We introduce the concepts of participant triangularity and triangular flow in heavy-ion collisions, analogous to the definitions of participant eccentricity and elliptic flow. The participant triangularity characterizes ...
  • Medard, Muriel; Parandehgheibi, Ali; Sundararajan, Jay-Kumar (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2010-07)
    Current medium access control mechanisms are based on collision avoidance and collided packets are discarded. The recent work on ZigZag decoding departs from this approach by recovering the original packets from multiple ...
  • Bhamre, T.; Kominis, I. K.; McGuyer, B. H.; Happer, W.; Marsland, Robert Alvin (American Physical Society, 2013-04)
    We experimentally demonstrate how magnetic depolarization of velocity-selective optical pumping can be used to single out the collisional cusp kernel best describing spin- and velocity-relaxing collisions between potassium ...
  • Buehler, Markus J.; Keten, Sinan (American Physical Society, 2010-05)
    Materials fail by recurring rupture and shearing of interatomic bonds at microscopic, molecular scales, leading to disintegration of matter at macroscale and a loss of function. In this Colloquium, the state-of-the-art of ...
  • Chen, Jing; Micali, Silvio (Elsevier, 2012-01)
    We show that collusion and wrong beliefs may cause a dramatic efficiency loss in the Vickrey mechanism for auctioning a single good in limited supply. We thus put forward a new mechanism guaranteeing efficiency in a very ...
  • Cho, Jeonghee; Bass, Adam J.; Lawrence, Michael S.; Cibulskis, Kristian; Cho, Ahye; Lee, Shi-Nai; Yamauchi, Mai; Wagle, Nikhil; Pochanard, Panisa; Kim, Nayoung; Park, Angela K. J.; Won, Jonghwa; Hur, Hyung-Suk; Greulich, Heidi; Ogino, Shuji; Sougnez, Carrie; Voet, Douglas; Tabernero, Josep; Jimenez, Jose; Baselga, Jose; Gabriel, Stacey B.; Lander, Eric S.; Getz, Gad; Eck, Michael J.; Park, Woong-Yang; Meyerson, Matthew L. (BioMed Central Ltd, 2014-06)
    Background: Inhibition of the activated epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) with either enzymatic kinase inhibitors or anti-EGFR antibodies such as cetuximab, is an effective modality of treatment for multiple human ...
  • Acemoglu, Daron; Johnson, Simon; Robinson, James A (American Economic Association, 2012-10)
    Acemoglu, Johnson, and Robinson (2001) established that economic institutions today are correlated with expected mortality of European colonialists. David Albouy argues this relationship is not robust. He drops all data ...
  • Zubieta-O’Farrill, Gregorio; Gonzalez-Sanchez, Carlos; Villanueva-Saenz, Eduardo; Donoghue, Jacob Alexander; Castillo-Calcaneo, Juan de Dios del (Elsevier, 2013-02)
    INTRODUCTION: One-third of the world's population is infected with tuberculosis (TB), with intestinal TB representing the sixth most common presentation of extrapulmonary TB. The diagnosis of intestinal TB is a challenge ...
  • Vasilescu, Iuliu; Detweiler, Carrick; Rus, Daniela L. (Springer-Verlag, 2011-08)
    Capturing color in water is challenging due to the heavy non-uniform attenuation of light in water across the visible spectrum, which results in dramatic hue shifts toward blue. Yet observing color in water is important ...
  • Vogel, Nicolas; Utech, Stefanie; England, Grant T.; Shirman, Tanya; Phillips, Katherine R.; Koay, Natalie; Burgess, Ian B.; Kolle, Mathias; Weitz, David A.; Aizenberg, Joanna (National Academy of Sciences (U.S.), 2015-09)
    Materials in nature are characterized by structural order over multiple length scales have evolved for maximum performance and multifunctionality, and are often produced by self-assembly processes. A striking example of ...
  • Byrne, Alex; Hilbert, David R. (Cambridge University Press, 2003-02)
    The target article is an attempt to make some progress on the problem of color realism. Are objects colored? And what is the nature of the color properties? We defend the view that physical objects (for instance, tomatoes, ...
  • Byrne, Alex; Hilbert, David R. (Cambridge University Press, 2003-02)
    Our reply is in three parts. The first part concerns some foundational issues in the debate about color realism. The second part addresses the many objections to the version of physicalism about color (“productance ...
  • Hilbert, David R.; Byrne, Alex (Cambridge University Press, 2003-12)
    Our reply is in four parts. The first part, R1, addresses objections to our claim that there might be “unknowable” color facts. The second part, R2, discusses the use we make of opponent process theory. The third part, R3, ...
  • Schmidt, Sarah J.; West, Andrew A.; Hawley, Suzanne L.; Pineda, J. Sebastian (IOP Publishing, 2010-03)
    We present a sample of 484 L dwarfs, 210 of which are newly discovered from the Sloan Digital Sky Survey (SDSS) Data Release 7 spectroscopic database. We combine this sample with known L dwarfs to investigate their ...
  • Sales, Laura V.; Vogelsberger, Mark; Genel, Shy; Torrey, Paul; Nelson, Dylan; Rodriguez-Gomez, Vicente; Wang, Wenting; Pillepich, Annalisa; Sijacki, Debora; Springel, Volker; Hernquist, Lars (Oxford University Press, 2014-11)
    Observationally, the fraction of blue satellite galaxies decreases steeply with host halo mass, and their radial distribution around central galaxies is significantly shallower in massive (M[subscript *] ≥ 10[superscript ...
  • Spangler, Jamie Berta; Neil, Jason Robert; Abramovitch, Sivan; Yarden, Yosef; White, Forest M.; Lauffenburger, Douglas A.; Wittrup, Karl Dane (National Academy of Sciences (U.S.), 2010-07)
    Due to its common dysregulation in epithelial-based cancers and extensive characterization of its role in tumor growth, epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) is a highly validated target for anticancer therapies. There ...
  • Gomez-Ceballos, Guillelmo; Goncharov, Maxim; Paus, Christoph M. E. (American Physical Society, 2012-04)
    We report the combination of recent measurements of the helicity of the W boson from top quark decay by the CDF and D0 collaborations, based on data samples corresponding to integrated luminosities of 2.7–5.4  fb[superscript ...
  • Gomez-Ceballos, Guillelmo; Goncharov, Maxim; Paus, Christoph M. E. (American Physical Society, 2013-09)
    We summarize and combine direct measurements of the mass of the W boson in s√ = 1.96  TeV proton-antiproton collision data collected by CDF and D0 experiments at the Fermilab Tevatron Collider. Earlier measurements from ...
  • Gomez-Ceballos, Guillelmo; Goncharov, Maxim; Paus, Christoph M. E. (American Physical Society, 2014-04)
    We combine six measurements of the inclusive top-quark pair (t[bar over t]) production cross section (σ[subscript tt]-) from data collected with the CDF and D0 detectors at the Fermilab Tevatron with proton-antiproton ...
