  • Spokoini, Rachel; Moldavski, Ofer; Nahmias, Yaakov; England, Jeremy L.; Schuldiner, Maya; Kaganovich, Daniel (Elsevier, 2012-09)
    The division of the S. cerevisiae budding yeast, which produces one mother cell and one daughter cell, is asymmetric with respect to aging. Remarkably, the asymmetry of yeast aging coincides with asymmetric inheritance of ...
  • Bellm, Eric C.; Pottschmidt, Katja; Tomsick, John A.; Boggs, Steven E.; Chakrabarty, Deepto; Christensen, Finn E.; Craig, William W.; Hailey, Charles J.; Harrison, Fiona A.; Stern, Daniel; Walton, Dominic J.; Zhang, William W.; Chakrabarty, Deepto; Furst, Felix; Wilms, Jorn (IOP Publishing, 2014-08)
    GRO J1008–57 is a high-mass X-ray binary for which several claims of a cyclotron resonance scattering feature near 80 keV have been reported. We use NuSTAR, Suzaku, and Swift data from its giant outburst of 2012 November ...
  • Bayliss, Daniel D. R.; Winn, Joshua Nathan; Mardling, Rosemary A.; Sackett, Penny D. (Institute of Physics, 2010-10)
    We present high-precision radial velocity observations of WASP-17 throughout the transit of its close-in giant planet, using the MIKE spectrograph on the 6.5 m Magellan Telescope at Las Campanas Observatory. By modeling ...
  • Quintana, Elisa V.; Rowe, Jason F.; Barclay, Thomas; Howell, Steve B.; Ciardi, David R.; Demory, Brice-Olivier; Caldwell, Douglas A.; Borucki, William J.; Christiansen, Jessie L.; Jenkins, Jon M.; Klaus, Todd C.; Fulton, Benjamin J.; Morris, Robert L.; Sanderfer, Dwight T.; Shporer, Avi; Smith, Jeffrey C.; Still, Martin; Thompson, Susan E. (IOP Publishing, 2013-04)
    We present high precision photometry of Kepler-41, a giant planet in a 1.86 day orbit around a G6V star that was recently confirmed through radial velocity measurements. We have developed a new method to confirm giant ...
  • Maisano-Brown, Jeannette D. (Nature Publishing Group, 2017-02)
    Fusion energy research has in the past 40 years focused primarily on the tokamak concept, but recent advances in plasma theory and computational power have led to renewed interest in stellarators. The largest and most ...
  • Cappallo, Roger J.; de Oliveira-Costa, Angelica; Dillon, Joshua Shane; Ewall-Wice, Aaron Michael; Feng, Lu; Hewitt, Jacqueline N.; Lonsdale, Colin John; McWhirter, Stephen R.; Morgan, Edward H.; Neben, Abraham Richard; Tegmark, Max Erik; Williams, Christopher Leigh (IOP Publishing, 2015-07)
    We confirm our recent prediction of the "pitchfork" foreground signature in power spectra of high-redshift 21 cm measurements where the interferometer is sensitive to large-scale structure on all baselines. This is due to ...
  • Fang, Taotao; Buote, David A.; Humphrey, Philip J.; Canizares, Claude R.; Zappacosta, Luca; Maiolino, Roberto; Tagliferri, Gianpiero; Gastaldello, Fabio (IOP Publishing, 2010-04)
    In a previous paper, we reported a 3σ detection of an absorption line from the warm-hot intergalactic medium (WHIM) using the Chandra and XMM X-ray grating spectra of the blazar H2356-309, the sight line of which intercepts ...
  • Gou, Lijun; McClintock, Jeffrey E.; Remillard, Ronald Alan; Steiner, James F.; Reid, Mark J.; Orosz, Jerome A.; Narayan, Ramesh; Hanke, Manfred; Garcia, Javier A. (Institute of Physics/American Astronomical Society, 2014-07)
    In Gou et al., we reported that the black hole primary in the X-ray binary Cygnus X-1 is a near-extreme Kerr black hole with a spin parameter a * > 0.95 (3σ). We confirm this result while setting a new and more stringent ...
  • Fang, Taotao; Canizares, Claude R.; Yao, Yangsen (IOP Publishing, 2007-08)
    We present new observations of PKS 2155-304 with the Chandra Low Energy Transmission Grating (LETG), using the Advanced CCD Imaging Spectrometer (ACIS). We confirm the detection of an absorption line plausibly identified ...
  • Fitzpatrick, Colin; Miller, T. Reed; Roth, Richard; Kirchain, Randolph; Olivetti, Elsa A. (American Chemical Society (ACS), 2014-12)
    Recent legislation has focused attention on the supply chains of tin, tungsten, tantalum, and gold (3TG), specifically those originating from the eastern part of the Democratic Republic of Congo. The unique properties of ...
  • Jackiw, Roman; Pi, So-Young (American Physical Society, 2012-08)
    Extending previous work on two- and three-point functions, we study the four-point function and its conformal block structure in conformal quantum mechanics CFT[subscript 1], which realizes the SO(2,1) symmetry group. ...
  • Chesler, Paul Michael; Lucas, Andrew; Sachdev, Subir (American Physical Society, 2014-01)
    We study (2+1)-dimensional conformal field theories (CFTs) with a globally conserved U(1) charge, placed in a chemical potential which is periodically modulated along the spatial direction x with zero average: μ(x)=V cos(kx). ...
  • Swingle, Brian Gordon (American Physical Society, 2012-07)
    The Fermi surface may be usefully viewed as a collection of (1+1)-dimensional chiral conformal field theories. This approach permits straightforward calculation of many anomalous ground-state properties of the Fermi gas, ...
  • Bimonte, Giuseppe; Emig, Thorsten; Kardar, Mehran (Institute of Physics Publishing, 2013-10)
    Thermal fluctuations of a critical system induce long-ranged Casimir forces between objects that couple to the underlying field. For two-dimensional (2D) conformal field theories (CFT) we derive an exact result for the ...
  • Larkoski, Andrew (American Physical Society, 2014-10)
    In this note, I show that the recently proposed subleading soft factor in massless gauge theory uniquely follows from conformal symmetry of tree-level gauge theory amplitudes in four dimensions.
  • Wilson, David B.; Miller, Jason P.; Watson, Samuel Stewart (Springer-Verlag, 2015-03)
    The conformal loop ensemble CLE[subscript κ]with parameter 8/3<κ<8 is the canonical conformally invariant measure on countably infinite collections of non-crossing loops in a simply connected domain. We show that the number ...
  • Werner, Wendelin; Sheffield, Scott Roger (Princeton University Press, 2012-11)
    For random collections of self-avoiding loops in two-dimensional domains, we define a simple and natural conformal restriction property that is conjecturally satisfied by the scaling limits of interfaces in models from ...
  • Chamon, Claudio; Pi, So-Young; Santos, Luiz; Jackiw, Roman W (Elsevier, 2011-06)
    A (0+1)-dimensional candidate theory for the CFT[subscript 1] dual to AdS2 is discussed. The quantum mechanical system does not have a ground state that is invariant under the three generators of the conformal group. ...

    Quiver quantum mechanics describes the low energy dynamics of a system of wrapped D-branes. It captures several aspects of single and multicentered BPS black hole geometries in four-dimensional N = 2 supergravity such as ...
  • Chen, Nan; Wang, Xiaoxue; Gleason, Karen K (Elsevier, 2014-06)
    In this work, we demonstrate a single-layer encapsulation method for poly(3,4-ethylenedioxythiophene) (PEDOT). This method is achieved by initiated chemical vapor deposition (iCVD) process, which is scalable and employs ...
