Howie; Challis, Peter; Mandel, Kaisey S.; Bloom, Joshua S.; Modjaz, Maryam; Narayan, Gautham; Hicken, Malcolm; Foley, Ryan J.; Klein, Christopher R.; Starr, Dan L.; Morgan, Adam N.; Rest, Armin; Blake, Cullen H.; Miller, Adam A.; Falco, Emilio E.; Wyatt, William F.; Mink, Jessica; Skrutskie, Michael F.; Kirshner, Robert P.; Friedman, Andrew Samuel (2015-09)
    CfAIR2 is a large, homogeneously reduced set of near-infrared (NIR) light curves (LCs) for Type Ia supernovae (SNe Ia) obtained with the 1.3 m Peters Automated InfraRed Imaging TELescope. This data set includes 4637 ...
  • Johnson, Micah K.; Dale, Kevin; Avidan, Shai; Pfister, Hanspeter; Freeman, William T.; Matusik, Wojciech (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2011-09)
    Computer-generated (CG) images have achieved high levels of realism. This realism, however, comes at the cost of long and expensive manual modeling, and often humans can still distinguish between CG and real images. We ...
  • Smith, Beverly J.; Swartz, Douglas A.; Miller, Olivia; Burleson, Jacob A.; Nowak, Michael A.; Struck, Curtis (Institute of Physics/American Astronomical Society, 2012-06)
    We have conducted a statistical analysis of the ultra-luminous X-ray point sources (ULXs; LX ≥ 10[superscript 39] erg s–1) in a sample of galaxies selected from the Arp Atlas of Peculiar Galaxies. We find a possible ...
  • Bonillo Fernandez, Baltasar; Swager, Timothy Manning (American Chemical Society (ACS), 2012-11)
    Lewis acids promote the polymerization of several 2-chloroalkylenedioxythiophenes, providing high-molecular-weight conjugated polymers. The proposed mechanism is a cationic chain-growth polymerization, as confirmed by ...
  • Mistree, Behram F. T.; Paradiso, Joseph A. (Association for Computing Machinery, 2010-01)
    The ChainMail system is a scalable electronic sensate skin that is designed as a dense sensor network. ChainMail is built from small (1"x1") rigid circuit boards attached to their neighbors with flexible interconnects that ...
  • Hibi, Takayuki; Li, Nan (Springer Singapore, 2015-02)
    It will be shown that the toric ring of the chain polytope of a finite partially ordered set is an algebra with straightening laws on a finite distributive lattice. Thus, in particular, every chain polytope possesses a ...
  • Fujimoto, James G.; Jasanoff, Alan Pradip; So, Peter T. C. (Elsevier, 2013-10)
    The Brain Research through Advancing Innovative Neurotechnologies (BRAIN) Initiative has focused scientific attention on the necessary tools to understand the human brain and mind. Here, we outline our collective vision ...
  • Poterba, James M. (Economic and Social Studies Institute, 2010-01)
    Roy Geary spent his career using applied economic analysis to tackle important questions in public policy. I am deeply honoured to join the list of previous Geary lecturers who have celebrated the memory of such an important ...
  • Levy, Samuel Joseph; Faulkner, A. Awadagin; Sussman, Joseph M (Transportation Research Board of the National Academies, 2015-08)
    The California High-Speed Rail Authority adopted a blended system at the northern and southern terminuses of the planned first phase of its high-speed rail line. In this blended operation, the high-speed rail line share ...
  • Palacios, Tomas (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2009-07)
    This talk describes some successful Industry/University collaboration models currently being used at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
  • Lelyveld, Victor S.; Jasanoff, Alan Pradip; Atanasijevic, Tatjana (John Wiley & Sons, Inc., 2010-02)
    Magnetic resonance (MRI)-based molecular imaging methods are beginning to have impact in neuroscience. A growing number of molecular imaging agents have been synthesized and tested in vitro, but so far relatively few have ...
  • Chevrier, Vincent L.; Ceder, Gerbrand (Electrochemical Society, 2011-07)
    Na-ion batteries have been proposed as candidates for replacing Li-ion batteries. In this paper we examine the viability of Na-ion negative electrode materials based on Na alloys or hard carbons in terms of volumetric ...
  • Unhelkar, Vaibhav Vasant; Shah, Julie A (Association for Computing Machinery (ACM), 2015-03)
    Industrial robots are on the verge of emerging from their cages, and entering the final assembly to work along side humans. Towards this we are developing a collaborative robot capable of assisting humans in the final ...
  • Knittel, Christopher Roland; Metaxoglou, Konstantinos (American Economic Association, 2011-05)
    In this paper, we share our experience with merger simulations using a Random Coefficient Logit model on the demand side and assuming a static Bertrand game on the supply side. Drawing largely from our work in Knittel and ...
  • Widder, Stefanie; Allen, Rosalind J; Pfeiffer, Thomas; Curtis, Thomas P; Wiuf, Carsten; Sloan, William T; Cordero, Otto X; Brown, Sam P; Momeni, Babak; Shou, Wenying; Kettle, Helen; Flint, Harry J; Haas, Andreas F; Laroche, B?atrice; Kreft, Jan-Ulrich; Rainey, Paul B; Freilich, Shiri; Schuster, Stefan; Milferstedt, Kim; van der Meer, Jan R; Huisman, Jef; Free, Andrew; Picioreanu, Cristian; Quince, Christopher; Klapper, Isaac; Labarthe, Simon; Smets, Barth F; Wang, Harris; Soyer, Orkun S; Grosskopf, Tobias; Cordero Sanchez, Otto X. (Nature Publishing Group, 2016-03)
    The importance of microbial communities (MCs) cannot be overstated. MCs underpin the biogeochemical cycles of the earth’s soil, oceans and the atmosphere, and perform ecosystem functions that impact plants, animals and ...
  • McCammon, Jasmine M.; Sive, Hazel L. (Company of Biologists, 2015-06)
    The treatment of psychiatric disorders presents three major challenges to the research and clinical community: defining a genotype associated with a disorder, characterizing the molecular pathology of each disorder and ...
  • Tsukamoto, Kosuke; Kocher, Olivier; Krieger, Monty; Buck, Lorenna Dianne; Griffith, Linda G.; Inman, Samuel Walker (Public Library of Science, 2013-07)
    Background: PDZK1 is a four PDZ-domain containing cytoplasmic protein that binds to a variety of membrane proteins via their C-termini and can influence the abundance, localization and/or function of its target proteins. ...
  • Rubin, Julia; Rinard, Martin C (Association for Computing Machinery (ACM), 2016)
    We report on the results of an empirical study conducted with 35 experienced software developers from 22 high-tech companies, including Google, Facebook, Microsoft, Intel, and others. The goal of the study was to elicit ...
  • Bouma, Brett E.; Tearney, Guillermo J.; Tanaka, Atsushi (Society of Photo-optical Instrumentation Engineers, 2010-03)
    Cellularity of the fibrous caps of coronary atheromas, manifested by the infiltration of macrophages (average size, 20 to 30 [micrometer]), is thought to weaken the structural integrity of the cap and predispose plaques ...
