  • Yu, Winston; Yang, Yi-Chen; Savitsky, Andre; Alford, Donald; Brown, Casey; Wescoat, James; Debowicz, Dario; Robinson, Sherman (The World Bank, 2013-04)
    Surveys the current policy environment for addressing water and agricultural issues in a changing climate, which is shaped by economic development plans at the national and provincial levels, sector plans for water and ...
  • Montfort, Nick (Association for Computing Machinery, 2011-06)
    Curveship, a Python framework for developing interactive fiction (IF) with narrative style, is described. The system simulates a world with locations, characters, and objects, providing the typical facilities of an IF ...
  • Poonen, Bjorn (Springer-Verlag, 2010-05)
    There is an algorithm that takes as input a global field k and produces a curve over k violating the local-global principle. Also, given a global field k and a nonnegative integer n, one can effectively construct a curve ...
  • Qiu, Yihui; Perreault, David J.; Kassakian, John G.; Keim, Thomas A. (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2010-07)
    Research has shown that variable valve timing (VVT) can improve significantly the performance of internal combustion (IC) engines, including higher fuel efficiencies, lower emissions, and larger torque outputs at each point ...

  • Zuckerman, Ethan (MIT Press, 2014-04)
    Participatory media technologies like weblogs and Facebook provide a new space for political discourse, which leads some governments to seek controls over online speech. Activists who use the Internet for dissenting speech ...
  • Higham, Eileen M.; Shen, Ching-Hung; Wittrup, Karl Dane; Chen, Jianzhu (The American Association of Immunologists, 2010-04)
    The tumor environment exerts a powerful suppressive influence on infiltrating tumor-reactive T cells. It induces tolerance of adoptively transferred effector T cells as they enter tumors and maintains the tolerance of ...
  • Qureshi, Asfandyar; Weber, Rick; Balakrishnan, Hari; Guttag, John V.; Maggs, Bruce (Association for Computing Machinery / ACM Special Interest Group on Data Communications, 2009-08)
    Energy expenses are becoming an increasingly important fraction of data center operating costs. At the same time, the energy expense per unit of computation can vary significantly between two different locations. In this ...

  • Roberts, Edward B.; Eesley, Charles E. (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2009-08)
    We explore learning-by-doing in an important setting not previously explored - the context of one or more complex experiences encountered in novel circumstances. We explore characteristics that lead to learning at the ...

  • Heldt, Thomas; Mukkamala, Ramakrishna; Moody, George B.; Mark, Roger Greenwood (Bentham Open, 2010)
    CVSim is a lumped-parameter model of the human cardiovascular system that has been developed and used for research and for teaching quantitative physiology courses at MIT and Harvard Medical School since 1984. We present ...
  • Sakai, Takeo; Danheiser, Rick Lane (American Chemical Society, 2010-09)
    Two metal-free, formal [2 + 2 + 2] cycloaddition strategies for the construction of polycyclic pyridine derivatives are described that proceed via pericyclic cascade mechanisms featuring the participation of unactivated ...
  • Liang, Biqing; Wu, Ting-Di; Sun, Hao-Jhe; Vali, Hojatollah; Guerquin-Kern, Jean-Luc; Wang, Chung-Ho; Bosak, Tanja (Public Library of Science, 2014-02)
    Thin, filamentous, non-heterocystous, benthic cyanobacteria (Subsection III) from some marine, lacustrine and thermal environments aggregate into macroscopic cones and conical stromatolites. We investigate the uptake and ...
  • Kisby, Glen E.; Fry, Rebecca C.; Lasarev, Michael R.; Bammler, Theodor K.; Beyer, Richard P.; Churchwell, Mona; Doerge, Daniel R.; Meira, Lisiane B.; Palmer, Valerie S.; Ramos-Crawford, Ana-Luiza; Ren, Xuefeng; Sullivan, Robert C.; Kavanagh, Terrance J.; Samson, Leona D.; Zarbl, Helmut; Spencer, Peter S. (Public Library of Science, 2011-06)
    Methylazoxymethanol (MAM), the genotoxic metabolite of the cycad azoxyglucoside cycasin, induces genetic alterations in bacteria, yeast, plants, insects and mammalian cells, but adult nerve cells are thought to be unaffected. ...
  • Pierson, Kawika; Sterman, John (Wiley Blackwell, 2013-07)
    Aggregate airline industry earnings have exhibited large-amplitude cyclical behavior since deregulation in 1978. To explore the causes of these cycles we develop a behavioral dynamic model of the airline industry with ...
  • Assaf, Sami H. (Electronic Journal of Combinatorics, 2010-12)
    A classic problem in enumerative combinatorics is to count the number of derangements, that is, permutations with no fixed point. Inspired by a recent generalization to facet derangements of the hypercube by Gordon and ...
  • Packard, Corinne E.; Homerq, E. R.; Al-Aqeeli, N.; Schuh, Christopher A. (Taylor & Francis Group, 2010-03)
    A combined program of experiments and simulations is used to study the problem of cyclic indentation loading on metallic glasses. The experiments use a spherical nanoindenter tip to study shear band formation in three ...
  • Buehler, Markus J.; Mooney, David J.; Hunter, Craig P.; Chae, Jeiwook; Yung, Yu Ching (United States National Academy of Sciences, 2009-08)
    Mechanical signals regulate blood vessel development in vivo, and have been demonstrated to regulate signal transduction of endothelial cell (EC) and smooth muscle cell (SMC) phenotype in vitro. However, it is unclear how ...
