  • Shabani, A.; Kosut, R. L.; Rabitz, H.; Mohseni, Masoud; Lloyd, Seth (American Physical Society, 2011-07)
    We develop an efficient and robust approach for quantum measurement of nearly sparse many-body quantum Hamiltonians based on the method of compressive sensing. This work demonstrates that with only O(sln(d)) experimental ...
  • Ramanujam, Varun; Balakrishnan, Hamsa (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2011-07)
    The runway configuration is the subset of the runways at an airport that are used for arrivals and departures at any time. Many factors, including weather (wind and visibility), expected arrival and departure demand, ...
  • Metaxoglou, Konstantinos; Knittel, Christopher Roland (MIT Press, 2014-03)
    We document the numerical challenges we experienced estimating random-coefficient demand models as in Berry, Levinsohn, and Pakes (1995) using two well-known data sets and a thorough optimization design. The optimization ...

  • Fisher, John W., III; Siracusa, Michael; Tieu, Kinh (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2009-02)
    Information measures have long been studied in the context of hypothesis testing leading to variety of bounds on performance based on the information content of a signal or the divergence between distributions. Here we ...
  • Farahat, Waleed A.; Asada, Harry (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2010-07)
    We address the problem of estimating the probability transition matrix of an asynchronous vector Markov process from aggregate (longitudinal) population observations. This problem is motivated by estimating phenotypic state ...
  • Wu, Leon; Teravainen, Timothy; Kaiser, Gail; Anderson, Roger; Boulanger, Albert; Rudin, Cynthia (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2011-07)
    An important problem in reliability engineering is to predict the failure rate, that is, the frequency with which an engineered system or component fails. This paper presents a new method of estimating failure rate using ...
  • Bachrach, Abraham Galton; Prentice, Samuel James; He, Ruijie; Huang, Albert S.; Roy, Nicholas; Henry, Peter; Krainin, Michael; Maturana, Daniel; Fox, Dieter (Sage Publications, 2012-09)
    RGB-D cameras provide both color images and per-pixel depth estimates. The richness of this data and the recent development of low-cost sensors have combined to present an attractive opportunity for mobile robotics research. ...
  • Gorodnichenko, Yuriy; Mikusheva, Anna; Ng, Serena (Cambridge University Press, 2012-08)
    This paper considers a moments-based nonlinear estimator that is √T-consistent and uniformly asymptotically normal irrespective of the degree of persistence of the forcing process. These properties hold for linear ...
  • Lewis, Michael C.; Fan, Lu; Zhao, Zaorui; Orr, Patrick T.; Chambers, Cassie H.; Frick, Karyn M. (Society for Neuroscience, 2010-01)
    We previously demonstrated that dorsal hippocampal extracellular signal-regulated kinase (ERK) activation is necessary for 17β[beta]-estradiol (E2[E subscript 2]) to enhance novel object recognition in young ovariectomized ...
  • Gupta, Piyush; Lander, Eric S.; Fillmore, Christine M.; Rudnick, Jenny A.; Caballero, Silvia; Keller, Patricia J.; Kuperwasser, Charlotte (National Academy of Sciences (U.S.), 2010-11)
    Many tumors contain heterogeneous populations of cells, only some of which exhibit increased tumorigenicity and resistance to anticancer therapies. Evidence suggests that these aggressive cancer cells, often termed “cancer ...
  • Baugher, Britton William Herb; Jarillo-Herrero, Pablo; Lemme, Max C.; Bell, David C.; Williams, James R.; Stern, Lewis A.; Marcus, Charles M. (American Chemical Society (ACS), 2009-09)
    We report on the etching of graphene devices with a helium ion beam, including in situ electrical measurement during lithography. The etching process can be used to nanostructure and electrically isolate different regions ...
  • Bousso, Raphael; Freivogel, Benjamin W.; Leichenauer, Stefan; Rosenhaus, Vladimir (American Physical Society, 2011-01)
    Present treatments of eternal inflation regulate infinities by imposing a geometric cutoff. We point out that some matter systems reach the cutoff in finite time. This implies a nonzero probability for a novel type of ...
  • Har-Peled, Sariel; Indyk, Piotr; Sidiropoulos, Anastasios (Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics, 2013)
    A classical result in metric geometry asserts that any n-point metric admits a linear-size spanner of dilation O(log n) [PS89]. More generally, for any c > 1, any metric space admits a spanner of size O(n[superscript ...
  • Bhattacharya, Arpita; McIntosh, Kerri B.; Willis, Ian M.; Warner, Jonathan R. (Public Library of Science, 2011-08)
    It has recently become clear that the misassembly of ribosomes in eukaryotic cells can have deleterious effects that go far beyond a simple shortage of ribosomes. In this work we find that cells deficient in ribosomal ...
  • Heller, Ryan C.; Kang, Sukhyun; Lam, Wendy M.; Chen, Shuyan; Chan, Clara S.; Bell, Stephen P.; Bell, Stephen P. (Elsevier B.V., 2011-07)
    Proper eukaryotic DNA replication requires temporal separation of helicase loading from helicase activation and replisome assembly. Using an in vitro assay for eukaryotic origin-dependent replication initiation, we ...
  • Wu, Hao-Yu; Rubinstein, Michael; Shih, Eugene; Guttag, John V.; Durand, Fredo; Freeman, William T. (Association for Computing Machinery, 2012-07)
    Our goal is to reveal temporal variations in videos that are difficult or impossible to see with the naked eye and display them in an indicative manner. Our method, which we call Eulerian Video Magnification, takes a ...
  • Siemens, Mark; Li, Qing; Murnane, Margaret; Kapteyn, Henry; Yang, Ronggui; Anderson, Erik; Nelson, Keith Adam (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2009-08)
    We use coherent extreme ultraviolet radiation to probe surface acoustic wave propagation in nickel-on-sapphire nanostructures. We observe no acoustic dispersion over SAW wavelengths down to 200 nm, meaning the SAW propagation ...
  • Barnhart, Cynthia; Fearing, Douglas (Transportation Research Board, 2011-07)
    The collaborative decision-making (CDM) framework introduced into ground delay programs in the late 1990s is an integral component of FAA's traffic flow management (TFM) procedures. CDM allows FAA to act as a mediator when ...
  • Schmalensee, Richard (Oxford University Press, 2012-01)
    Building on a review of experience in the United States and the European Union, this article advances four main propositions concerning policies aimed at increasing electricity generation from renewable energy. First, who ...
