  • Schlapfer, Markus Stefan; Buzna, Lubos (American Physical Society, 2012-01)
    While degree correlations are known to play a crucial role for spreading phenomena in networks, their impact on the propagation speed has hardly been understood. Here we investigate a tunable spreading model on scale-free ...
  • Williams, Brian Charles; Ono, Masahiro (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2010-12)
    This paper considers finite-horizon optimal control for multi-agent systems subject to additive Gaussian-distributed stochastic disturbance and a chance constraint. The problem is particularly difficult when agents are ...
  • Dames, Philip; Schwager, Mac; Kumar, Vijay; Rus, Daniela L. (2012-12)
    This paper proposes an algorithm for driving a group of resource-constrained robots with noisy sensors to localize an unknown number of targets in an environment, while avoiding hazards at unknown positions that cause the ...
  • Jaillet, Patrick; Chen, Jie; Low, Kian Hsiang; Tan, Colin Keng-Yan; Dolan, John; Sukhatme, Gaurav; Oran, Ali (Association for Uncertainty in Artificial Intelligence (AUAI), 2012-08)
    The problem of modeling and predicting spatiotemporal traffic phenomena over an urban road network is important to many traffic applications such as detecting and forecasting congestion hotspots. This paper presents a ...
  • Tsitsiklis, John N.; Zoumpoulis, Spyridon Ilias; Kreidl, Olivier Patrick (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2011-02)
    We study a decentralized detection architecture in which each of a set of sensors transmits a highly compressed summary of its observations (a binary message) to a fusion center, which then decides on one of two alternative ...
  • Ahmed, Nisar; Luders, Brandon Douglas; Sample, Eric; Shah, Danelle; Campbell, Mark; How, Jonathan P.; Ponda, Sameera S. (American Institute of Aeromautics and Astronautics, 2011-08)
    This paper introduces a novel planning and estimation framework for maximizing infor- mation collection in missions involving cooperative teams of multiple autonomous vehicles and human agents, such as those used for ...
  • Ponda, Sameera S.; Redding, Josh; Choi, Han-Lim; How, Jonathan P.; Vavrina, Matt; Vian, John (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2010-07)
    This paper extends the consensus-based bundle algorithm (CBBA), a distributed task allocation framework previously developed by the authors, to address complex missions for a team of heterogeneous agents in a dynamic ...
  • Choi, Han-Lim; Whitten, Andrew Koo; How, Jonathan P. (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2010-07)
    This paper presents decentralized methods for allocating heterogeneous tasks to a network of agents with different capabilities, when the rules of engagement dictate various cooperation constraints. The new methods are ...
  • Whitten, Andrew K.; Johnson, Luke B.; How, Jonathan P.; Choi, Han-Lim (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2011-06)
    This paper presents a decentralized algorithm that creates feasible assignments for a network of autonomous agents in the presence of coupled constraints. The coupled constraints address complex mission characteristics ...
  • Gat-Viks, Irit; Chevrier, Nicolas; Wilentzik, Roni; Eisenhaure, Thomas; Raychowdhury, Raktima; Steuerman, Yael; Shalek, Alex K; Hacohen, Nir; Amit, Ido; Regev, Aviv (Nature Publishing Group, 2013-03)
    Individual genetic variation affects gene responsiveness to stimuli, often by influencing complex molecular circuits. Here we combine genomic and intermediate-scale transcriptional profiling with computational methods to ...
  • Stubbe, JoAnne; Nocera, Daniel G.; Holder, Patrick; Pizano, Arturo Alejandro; Anderson, Bryce Lane (American Chemical Society (ACS), 2011-11)
    Incorporation of 2,3,6-trifluorotyrosine (F[subscript 3]Y) and a rhenium bipyridine ([Re]) photooxidant into a peptide corresponding to the C-terminus of the β protein (βC19) of Escherichia coli ribonucleotide reductase ...
  • Prelec, Drazen (Cambridge University Press, 2013)
    By Calvinist point of view, I refer to analysis focused on assessing the diagnostic significance of policy decisions, rather than establishing the direct consequences of decisions. Diagnostic significance refers to information ...
  • Linkov, Igor; Trump, Benjamin; Jin, David S.; Mazurczak, Marcin; Schreurs, Miranda (Springer, 2014-08)
    Background: The development of horizontal drilling and hydraulic fracturing methods has dramatically increased the potential for the extraction of previously unrecoverable natural gas. Nonetheless, the potential risks and ...
  • Amon, Angelika B.; Tyers, Mike (Elsevier Ltd., 2009-12)
    Cells must perpetually decide on three big choices in life: to grow, to divide or to die. These system-level decisions are the output of a complex and still very poorly understood molecular algorithm, which is built from ...
  • Kharait, Sourabh; Hautaniemi, Sampsa; Wu, Shan; Iwabu, Akihiro; Lauffenburger, Douglas A.; Wells, Alan (BioMed Central Ltd, 2007-01)
    Background: Computational models of cell signaling networks typically are aimed at capturing dynamics of molecular components to derive quantitative insights from prior experimental data, and to make predictions concerning ...
  • Youngman, Matthew J.; Rogers, Zoe N.; Kim, Dennis H. (Public Library of Science, 2011-05)
    The decline in immune function with aging, known as immunosenescence, has been implicated in evolutionarily diverse species, but the underlying molecular mechanisms are not understood. During aging in Caenorhabditis elegans, ...
  • Koster-Hale, Jorie; Saxe, Rebecca R.; Dungan, James; Young, Liane L. (National Academy of Sciences (U.S.), 2013-03)
    Intentional harms are typically judged to be morally worse than accidental harms. Distinguishing between intentional harms and accidents depends on the capacity for mental state reasoning (i.e., reasoning about beliefs and ...
  • Pan, Wei; Altshuler, Yaniv; Pentland, Alex Paul (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2012-09)
    In this paper, we study roles of social mechanisms in a financial system. Our data come from a novel on-line foreign exchange trading brokerage for individual investors, which also allows investors to form social network ...
  • Day, Mitchell L.; Delgutte, Bertrand (Society for Neuroscience, 2013-10)
    The strategies by which the central nervous system decodes the properties of sensory stimuli, such as sound source location, from the responses of a population of neurons are a matter of debate. We show, using the average ...
  • Jayaraman, Akila; Chandrasekaran, Aarthi; Viswanathan, Karthik; Raman, Rahul; Fox, James G.; Sasisekharan, Ram (Public Library of Science, 2012-02)
    Ferrets are widely used as animal models for studying influenza A viral pathogenesis and transmissibility. Human-adapted influenza A viruses primarily target the upper respiratory tract in humans (infection of the lower ...
