  • Bahr, Alexander; Leonard, John Joseph; Fallon, Maurice Francis (Sage Publications, 2009-06)
    This paper describes an algorithm for distributed acoustic navigation for Autonomous Underwater Vehicles (AUVs). Whereas typical AUV navigation systems utilize pre-calibrated arrays of static transponders, our work seeks ...
  • Wymeersch, Henk; Lien, Jaime; Win, Moe Z. (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2009-03)
    Location-aware technologies will revolutionize many aspects of commercial, public service, and military sectors, and are expected to spawn numerous unforeseen applications. A new era of highly accurate ubiquitous ...
  • Papadopoulos, Georgios; Fallon, Maurice Francis; Leonard, John Joseph (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2013-05-15)
    This paper investigates the problem of cooperative navigation of autonomous marine vehicles using range-only acoustic measurements. We consider the use of a single maneuvering autonomous surface vehicle (ASV) to aid the ...
  • Garone, Emanuele; Naldi, Roberto; Casavola, Alessandro; Frazzoli, Emilio (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2011-02)
    In this work we focus on mission planning problems in scenarios in which a carrier vehicle, typically slow but with virtually infinite range, and a carried vehicle, which on the contrary is typically fast but has a shorter ...
  • Park, Ji-Ho; von Maltzahn, Geoffrey; Ong, Luvena L.; Centrone, Andrea; Hatton, T. Alan; Ruoslahti, Erkki; Bhatia, Sangeeta N.; Sailor, Michael J. (Wiley Blackwell, 2009-11)
    A cooperative nanosystem consisting of two distinct nanomaterials works in vivo to detect tumor tissues and deliver drugs to the site. Gold nanorods (GNRs) localize to the tumor region, where they report their location and ...
  • Chung, Soon-Jo; Slotine, Jean-Jacques E. (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2007-12)
    This article presents a simple synchronization framework that can be directly applied to cooperative control of multi-agent systems and oscillation synchronization in robotic manipulation and teleoperation. A dynamical ...
  • Sternad, Dagmar; Park, Se-Woong; Muller, Hermann; Hogan, Neville (Public Library of Science, 2010-04)
    Analysis of motor performance variability in tasks with redundancy affords insight about synergies underlying central nervous system (CNS) control. Preferential distribution of variability in ways that minimally affect ...
  • Bachrach, Abraham Galton; Garamifard, Alborz; Gurdan, Daniel; He, Ruijie; Prentice, Samuel James; Stumpf, Jan; Roy, Nicholas (Springer Berlin / Heidleberg, 2009-01)
    The MAV ’08 competition in Agra, India focused on the problem of using air and ground vehicles to locate and rescue hostages being held in a remote building. Executing this mission required addressing a number of technical ...
  • Pereyra, Florencia; Miura, Toshiyuki; Allen, Todd M.; Altfeld, Marcus; Carrington, Mary; Walker, Bruce D.; Dahirel, Vincent; Shekhar, Karthik; Artyomov, Mikita; Talsania, Shiv; Irvine, Darrell J.; Chakraborty, Arup K. (Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (PNAS), 2011-06)
    Cellular immune control of HIV is mediated, in part, by induction of single amino acid mutations that reduce viral fitness, but compensatory mutations limit this effect. Here, we sought to determine if higher order constraints ...
  • Zheng, Lizhong; Abbe, Emmanuel A. (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2012-02)
    This paper investigates network information theory problems where the external noise is Gaussian distributed. In particular, the Gaussian broadcast channel with coherent fading and the Gaussian interference channel are ...
  • Yun, Seungkook; Schwager, Mac; Rus, Daniela L. (Institute of Robotics and Intelligent Systems, 2009-09)
    This paper presents a decentralized algorithm for the coordinated assembly of 3D objects that consist of multiple types of parts, using a networked team of robots.We describe the algorithm and analyze its stability and ...
  • Moser, Edvard I.; Corbetta, Maurizio; Desimone, Robert; Fregnac, Yves; Fries, Pascal; Graybiel, Ann M.; Haynes, John-Dylan; Itti, Laurent; Melloni, Lucia; Monyer, Hannah; Singer, Wolf; von der Malsburg, Christoph; Wilson, Matthew A. (MIT Press, 2010-01)
    This chapter reviews the concept of dynamic coordination, its mechanistic implementation in brain circuits, and the extent to which dynamic coordination, and specific manifestations of it, have the power to account for ...
  • Mirrokni, Vahab S.; Li, Li (Erran); Immorlica, Nicole; Schulz, Andreas S. (Elsevier, 2008-12)
    In machine scheduling, a set of jobs must be scheduled on a set of machines so as to minimize some global objective function, such as the makespan, which we consider in this paper. In practice, jobs are often controlled ...
  • Stein, Itai Y.; Wardle, Brian L. (Royal Society of Chemistry, 2013-01)
    The average inter-wire spacing in aligned nanowire systems strongly influences both the physical and transport properties of the bulk material. Because most studies assume that the nanowire coordination is constant, a model ...
  • Raghunathan, Vivek; Xu, Jingjing; Michel, Jurgen; Gleason, Karen K.; Kimerling, Lionel C.; Yague, Jose Luis (Optical Society of America, 2012-08)
    Ubiquitous, low power consumption and high bandwidth density communication will require passive athermal optical filters for WDM transceivers in Si-CMOS architecture. Two silicon-polymer composite structures, deposited ...
  • Parsons, Andrew T.; Buchwald, Stephen Leffler (Wiley Blackwell, 2011-08)
    Activating the inactive: A copper-catalyzed allylic trifluoromethylation of unactivated terminal olefins proceeds under mild conditions to produce linear allylic trifluoromethylated products with high E/Z selectivity (see ...
  • Kimura, Hideaki; Huo, George; Rasin, Alexander; Madden, Samuel R.; Zdonik, Stanley B. (Association for Computing Machinery (ACM), 2010-09)
    We describe an automatic database design tool that exploits correlations between attributes when recommending materialized views (MVs) and indexes. Although there is a substantial body of related work exploring how to ...
  • Hoerter, John A. H.; Brzostek, Joanna; Artyomov, Maxim N.; Abel, Steven M.; Casas, Javier; Rybakin, Vasily; Ampudia, Jeanette; Lotz, Carina; Connolly, Janet M.; Chakraborty, Arup K.; Gould, Keith G.; Gascoigne, Nicholas R. J. (Rockefeller University Press, 2013-08)
    Recent work has demonstrated that nonstimulatory endogenous peptides can enhance T cell recognition of antigen, but MHCI- and MHCII-restricted systems have generated very different results. MHCII-restricted TCRs need to ...

(National Academy of Sciences (U.S.), 2010-08)
    The epithelial-to-mesenchymal transition (EMT) produces cancer cells that are invasive, migratory, and exhibit stem cell characteristics, hallmarks of cells that have the potential to generate metastases. Inducers of the ...
