  • 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; 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 ...
  • Woods, Nicholas W.; Flierl, Glenn Richard (Springer US, 2014-12)
    Dense copepod aggregations form in Massachusetts Bay and provide an important resource for right whales. We re-examine the processes which might account for the high concentrations, investigating both horizontally convergent ...
  • Woolgar, Alexandra; Golland, Polina; Bode, Stefan (els, 2014-05)
    Multivoxel pattern analysis (MVPA) is a sensitive and increasingly popular method for examining differences between neural activation patterns that cannot be detected using classical mass-univariate analysis. Recently, ...
  • 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 ...
  • Shi, Shi-Liang; Buchwald, Stephen Leffler (Nature Publishing Group, 2014-12)
    The development of selective reactions that utilize easily available and abundant precursors for the efficient synthesis of amines is a long-standing goal of chemical research. Despite the centrality of amines in a number ...
  • Zhu, Rong; Buchwald, Stephen Leffler (American Chemical Society (ACS), 2012-07)
    A mild, versatile, and convenient method for the efficient oxytrifluoromethylation of unactivated alkenes based on a copper-catalyzed oxidative difunctionalization strategy has been developed. This methodology provides ...
  • Yang, Yang; Buchwald, Stephen Leffler (Wiley Blackwell, 2014-05)
    A copper-based catalytic technique for the regioselective ortho C-H cyanation of vinylarenes has been developed. This method provides an effective means for the selective functionalization of vinylarene derivatives. A ...
  • 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 ...
  • Wagner, Mary-Elizabeth; Valenzuela, Rodrigo; Colet-Lagrille, Melanie; Allanore, Antoine; Vargas, Tomas; Wagner, Mary Elizabeth (Electrochemical Society, 2015-11)
    Impurities and additives play a key role in copper electrodeposition, in particular in upstream processes such as electrowinning or electrorefining. One common impurity is iron, mostly present as iron species Fe(II) in ...
  • 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 ...
  • Whitney, Osceola; Pfenning, Andreas R.; Howard, Jason T.; Blatti, Charles A.; Liu, Fang; Ward, James M.; Wang, Rui; Audet, Jean-Nicolas; Kellis, Manolis; Mukherjee, Sayan; Sinha, Saurabh; Hartemink, Alexander J.; West, Anne E.; Jarvis, Erich D. (American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS), 2014-12)
    Songbirds represent an important model organism for elucidating molecular mechanisms that link genes with complex behaviors, in part because they have discrete vocal learning circuits that have parallels with those that ...
  • 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 ...
  • Stepanek, Ondrej; Prabhakar, Arvind S.; Osswald, Celine; King, Carolyn G.; Bulek, Anna; Naeher, Dieter; Beaufils-Hugot, Marina; Abanto, Michael L.; Galati, Virginie; Hausmann, Barbara; Lang, Rosemarie; Cole, David K.; Huseby, Eric S.; Sewell, Andrew K.; Chakraborty, Arup K.; Palmer, Ed; Prabhakar, Arvind S.; Chakraborty, Arup K. (Elsevier, 2014-10)
    In the thymus, high-affinity, self-reactive thymocytes are eliminated from the pool of developing T cells, generating central tolerance. Here, we investigate how developing T cells measure self-antigen affinity. We show ...

(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 ...
  • Buck, Lorenna D.; Inman, S. Walker; Rusyn, Ivan; Griffith, Linda G. (Wiley Blackwell, 2014-01)
    Although oxygen and extracellular matrix cues both influence differentiation state and metabolic function of primary rat and human hepatocytes, relatively little is known about how these factors together regulate behaviors ...
