  • Stoop, Norbert; Lagrange, Romain; Lopez Jimenez, Francisco; Dunkel, Joern; Reis, Pedro Miguel (American Physical Society, 2016-03)
    We investigate the influence of curvature and topology on crystalline dimpled patterns on the surface of generic elastic bilayers. Our numerical analysis predicts that the total number of defects created by adiabatic ...
  • Montfort, Nick (Association for Computing Machinery, 2011-06)
    Curveship, a Python framework for developing interactive fiction (IF) with narrative style, is described. The system simulates a world with locations, characters, and objects, providing the typical facilities of an IF ...
  • Poonen, Bjorn (Springer-Verlag, 2010-05)
    There is an algorithm that takes as input a global field k and produces a curve over k violating the local-global principle. Also, given a global field k and a nonnegative integer n, one can effectively construct a curve ...
  • Qiu, Yihui; Perreault, David J.; Kassakian, John G.; Keim, Thomas A. (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2010-07)
    Research has shown that variable valve timing (VVT) can improve significantly the performance of internal combustion (IC) engines, including higher fuel efficiencies, lower emissions, and larger torque outputs at each point ...

  • Mulliken, Grant H.; Bichot, Narcisse Pascal; Ghadooshahy, Azriel Sion; Sharma, Jitendra; Kornblith, Simon John; Philcock, Michael; Desimone, Robert (Elsevier, 2014-12)
    Background: Recording and manipulating neural activity in awake behaving animal models requires long-term implantation of cranial implants that must address a variety of design considerations, which include preventing ...
  • Zuckerman, Ethan (MIT Press, 2013-04)
    Participatory media technologies like weblogs and Facebook provide a new space for political discourse, which leads some governments to seek controls over online speech. Activists who use the Internet for dissenting speech ...
  • Olberding, Simon; Gong, Nan-Wei; Tiab, John; Paradiso, Joseph A.; Steimle, Jürgen; Gong, Nan-wei (Association for Computing Machinery, 2013-10)
    We propose cutting as a novel paradigm for ad-hoc customization of printed electronic components. As a first instantiation, we contribute a printed capacitive multi-touch sensor, which can be cut by the end-user to modify ...
  • Higham, Eileen M.; Shen, Ching-Hung; Wittrup, Karl Dane; Chen, Jianzhu (The American Association of Immunologists, 2010-04)
    The tumor environment exerts a powerful suppressive influence on infiltrating tumor-reactive T cells. It induces tolerance of adoptively transferred effector T cells as they enter tumors and maintains the tolerance of ...
  • Qureshi, Asfandyar; Weber, Rick; Balakrishnan, Hari; Guttag, John V.; Maggs, Bruce (Association for Computing Machinery, 2009-08)
    Energy expenses are becoming an increasingly important fraction of data center operating costs. At the same time, the energy expense per unit of computation can vary significantly between two different locations. In this ...

  • Eesley, Charles E.; Roberts, Edward B. (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2009-08)
    We explore learning-by-doing in an important setting not previously explored - the context of one or more complex experiences encountered in novel circumstances. We explore characteristics that lead to learning at the ...

  • Gagnon, Yakir; Wheeler, Benjamin R.; Jaffe, Jules S.; Taniguchi, Darcy; Johnsen, Sonke (Public Library of Science, 2015-10)
    Cuttlefish are cephalopods capable of rapid camouflage responses to visual stimuli. However, it is not always clear to what these animals are responding. Previous studies have found cuttlefish to be more responsive to ...
  • Kudo, Akira; Steiner, Stephen A.; Bayer, Bernhard C.; Kidambi, Piran R.; Hofmann, Stephan; Strano, Michael S.; Wardle, Brian L. (American Chemical Society (ACS), 2014-12)
    By excluding metals from synthesis, growth of carbon nanostructures via unreduced oxide nanoparticle catalysts offers wide technological potential. We report new observations of the mechanisms underlying chemical vapor ...
  • Heldt, Thomas; Mukkamala, Ramakrishna; Moody, George B.; Mark, Roger Greenwood (Bentham Open, 2010)
    CVSim is a lumped-parameter model of the human cardiovascular system that has been developed and used for research and for teaching quantitative physiology courses at MIT and Harvard Medical School since 1984. We present ...
  • Havenar-Daughton, Colin; Heit, Antje; Wu, Jennifer E.; Reiss, Samantha M.; Kendric, Kayla; Bélanger, Simon; Kasturi, Sudhir Pai; Landais, Elise; Akondy, Rama S.; McGuire, Helen M.; Bothwell, Marcella; Vagefi, Parsia A.; Tomaras, Georgia D.; Davis, Mark M.; Poignard, Pascal; Ahmed, Rafi; Pulendran, Bali; McElrath, M. Juliana; Crotty, Shane; Lindqvist, Madelene; Scully, Eileen; Walker, Bruce D.; Kaufmann, Daniel E. (National Academy of Sciences (U.S.), 2016-02)
    Significantly higher levels of plasma CXCL13 [chemokine (C-X-C motif) ligand 13] were associated with the generation of broadly neutralizing antibodies (bnAbs) against HIV in a large longitudinal cohort of HIV-infected ...
  • Sakai, Takeo; Danheiser, Rick Lane (American Chemical Society, 2010-09)
    Two metal-free, formal [2 + 2 + 2] cycloaddition strategies for the construction of polycyclic pyridine derivatives are described that proceed via pericyclic cascade mechanisms featuring the participation of unactivated ...
  • Liang, Biqing; Wu, Ting-Di; Sun, Hao-Jhe; Vali, Hojatollah; Guerquin-Kern, Jean-Luc; Wang, Chung-Ho; Bosak, Tanja (Public Library of Science, 2014-02)
    Thin, filamentous, non-heterocystous, benthic cyanobacteria (Subsection III) from some marine, lacustrine and thermal environments aggregate into macroscopic cones and conical stromatolites. We investigate the uptake and ...
  • Vaishnav, Chintan H.; Choucri, Nazli; Clark, David D. (Springer US, 2013-11)
    The purpose of this paper is to conceptualize the hitherto separate domains of Cyberspace and International Relations into an integrated socio-technical system that we jointly call the cyber International Relations (Cyber-IR) ...
