  • Modiano, Eytan H.; Le, Long Bao; Lee, Hyang-Won (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2009-10)
    We consider throughput-optimal power allocation in multi-hop wireless networks. The study of this problem has been limited due to the non-convexity of the underlying optimization problems, that prohibits an efficient ...
  • Wongpiromsarn, Tichakorn; Uthaicharoenpong, Tawit; Wang, Yu; Frazzoli, Emilio; Wang, Danwei (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2012-09)
    We propose a distributed algorithm for controlling traffic signals. Our algorithm is adapted from backpressure routing, which has been mainly applied to communication and power networks. We formally prove that our algorithm ...
  • Lapinski, Michael Tomasz; Berkson, Eric; Gill, Thomas; Reinold, Mike; Paradiso, Joseph A. (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2009-09)
    This paper introduces a compact, wireless, wearable system that measures signals indicative of forces, torques and other descriptive and evaluative features that the human body undergoes during bursts of extreme physical ...
  • Paltsev, Sergey; Rausch, Sebastian; Reilly, John M; Metcalf, Gilbert E (Berkeley Electronic Press, 2010-07)
    We analyze the distributional and efficiency impacts of different allowance allocation schemes motivated by recently proposed U.S. climate legislation for a national cap and trade system using a new dynamic computable ...
  • De Simone, Andrea; Salem, Michael P. (American Physical Society, 2010-04)
    Our Universe may be contained in one among a diverging number of bubbles that nucleate within an eternally inflating multiverse. A promising measure to regulate the diverging spacetime volume of such a multiverse is the ...
  • Schuh, Christopher A.; Rodney, David (American Physical Society, 2009-06)
    The potential energy landscape of a flowing metallic glass is revealed using the activation-relaxation technique. For a two-dimensional Lennard-Jones system initially deformed into a steady-state condition through quasistatic ...
  • Song, Yale; Morency, Louis-Philippe; Davis, Randall (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2013-04)
    Many real-world face and gesture datasets are by nature imbalanced across classes. Conventional statistical learning models (e.g., SVM, HMM, CRY), however, are sensitive to imbalanced datasets. In this paper we show how ...
  • Church, Matthew J.; Wai, Brenner; Karl, David M.; DeLong, Edward (John Wiley & Sons, Inc., 2010-03)
    Planktonic Crenarchaea are thought to play a key role in chemolithotrophic ammonia oxidation, a critical step of the marine nitrogen (N) cycle. In this study, we examined the spatial distributions of ammonia-oxidizing ...
  • Gentine, Pierre; Entekhabi, Dara; Polcher, Jan (American Meteorological Society, 2011-12)
    The components of the land surface energy balance respond to periodic incoming radiation forcing with different amplitude and phase characteristics. Evaporative fraction (EF), the ratio of latent heat to available energy ...
  • Panday, Arnico K.; Prinn, Ronald G.; Schär, Christoph (American Geophysical Union, 2009-11)
    After completing a 9-month field experiment studying air pollution and meteorology in the Kathmandu Valley, Nepal, we set up the mesoscale meteorological model MM5 to simulate the Kathmandu Valley's meteorology with a ...
  • Panday, Arnico K.; Prinn, Ronald G. (American Geophysical Union, 2009-05)
    During the dry season of 2004–2005 we carried out field measurements of air pollution and meteorology in the Kathmandu Valley, Nepal, a bowl-shaped urban basin in the Himalayan foothills of Nepal. We measured the trace ...
  • Liu, Chuntao; Williams, Earle R.; Zipser, Edward J.; Burns, Gary (American Meteorological Society, 2010-02)
    The long-standing mainstay of support for C. T. R. Wilson’s global circuit hypothesis is the similarity between the diurnal variation of thunderstorm days in universal time and the Carnegie curve of electrical potential ...
  • Ryan, Katherine S.; Drennan, Catherine L. (Elsevier, 2009-04)
    Two molecules of the amino acid L-tryptophan are the biosynthetic precursors to a class of natural products named the “bisindoles.” Hundreds of these bisindole molecules have been isolated from natural sources, and many ...
  • Almada, Albert Ernesto; Lin, Charles; Sharp, Phillip A.; Young, Richard A.; Sigova, Alla A.; Mullen, Alan C.; Molinie, Benoit; Gupta, Sumeet; Orlando, David A.; Guenther, Matthew G.; Giallourakis, Cosmas C. (National Academy of Sciences (U.S.), 2013-02)
    Many long noncoding RNA (lncRNA) species have been identified in mammalian cells, but the genomic origin and regulation of these molecules in individual cell types is poorly understood. We have generated catalogs of lncRNA ...
  • Swager, Timothy Manning; Wang, Fei (American Chemical Society (ACS), 2011-03)
    A diverse array of multiwalled carbon nanotube (MWCNT) sensory materials have been synthesized and used to create sensors capable of identifying volatile organic compounds (VOCs) on the basis of their functional groups. ...
  • Abbar, Sofiane; Amer-Yahia, Sihem; Indyk, Piotr; Mahabadi, Sepideh; Varadarajan, Kasturi R. (Association for Computing Machinery (ACM), 2013-06)
    Motivated by the recent research on diversity-aware search, we investigate the k-diverse near neighbor reporting problem. The problem is defined as follows: given a query point q, report the maximum diversity set S of k ...
  • Modiano, Eytan H.; Lee, Hyang-Won (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2009-06)
    We develop diverse routing schemes for dealing with multiple, possibly correlated, failures. While disjoint path protection can effectively deal with isolated single link failures, recovering from multiple failures is not ...
  • Kong, Liangliang; Jing, Hongmei; Kataoka, Takafumi; Buchwald, Carolyn; Liu, Hongbin (Public Library of Science, 2013-10)
    Anaerobic ammonia oxidation (anammox) as an important nitrogen loss pathway has been reported in marine oxygen minimum zones (OMZs), but the community composition and spatial distribution of anammox bacteria in the eastern ...
  • Derda, Ratmir; Tang, Sindy; Li, S. Cory; Ng, Simon; Matochko, Wadim; Jafari, Mohammad (MDPI AG, 2011-02)
    The amplification of phage-displayed libraries is an essential step in the selection of ligands from these libraries. The amplification of libraries, however, decreases their diversity and limits the number of binding ...
  • Yang, Wei; Durisi, Giuseppe; Koch, Tobias; Polyanskiy, Yury (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2012-09)
    We study the maximal achievable rate R*(n, ∈) for a given block-length n and block error probability o over Rayleigh block-fading channels in the noncoherent setting and in the finite block-length regime. Our results show ...
