  • Buckley, Martha W.; Ponte, Rui M.; Heimbach, Patrick; Forget, Gael (American Meteorological Society, 2015-05)
    A recent state estimate covering the period 1992–2010 from the Estimating the Circulation and Climate of the Ocean (ECCO) project is utilized to quantify the roles of air–sea heat fluxes and advective heat transport ...
  • McAndrew, Elizabeth G.; Dugast, Anne-Sophie; Licht, Anna F.; Eusebio, Justin R.; Alter, Galit; Ackerman, Margaret E. (MyJoVE Corporation, 2011-11)
    Antibody-driven phagocytosis is induced via the engagement of Fc receptors on professional phagocytes, and can contribute to both clearance as well as pathology of disease. While the properties of the variable domains of ...
  • Holton, Richard (Routledge, 2009-08)
    Some recent studies have suggested that belief in determinism tends to undermine moral motivation: subjects who are given determinist texts to read become more likely to cheat or engage in vindictive behaviour. One possible ...
  • Chandrasekaran, Karthekeyan; Goyal, Navin; Haeupler, Bernhard (Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics, 2013-11)
    The Lovász local lemma (LLL) [P. Erdös and L. Lovász, Problems and results on 3-chromatic hypergraphs and some related questions, in Infinite and Finite Sets, Vol. II, A. Hajnal, R. Rado, and V. T. Sós, eds., North--Holland, ...
  • Chudzicki, Christopher Alan; Shapiro, Jeffrey H.; Chuang, Isaac L. (American Physical Society, 2013-04)
    Previous analyses of conditional φ[subscript nl]-phase gates for photonic qubits that treat cross-phase modulation (XPM) in a causal, multimode, quantum field setting suggest that a large (∼π rad) nonlinear phase shift is ...
  • Sheffield, Scott Roger (American Mathematical Society (AMS), 2013-06)
    Within classical optics, one may add microscopic "roughness'' to a macroscopically flat mirror so that parallel rays of a given angle are reflected at different outgoing angles. Taking the limit (as the roughness becomes ...
  • Thompson, J. D.; Tiecke, T. G.; de Leon, N. P.; Feist, J.; Akimov, A. V.; Gullans, Michael; Zibrov, A. S.; Lukin, M. D.; Vuletic, Vladan (American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS), 2013-04)
    Hybrid quantum devices, in which dissimilar quantum systems are combined in order to attain qualities not available with either system alone, may enable far-reaching control in quantum measurement, sensing, and information ...
  • Goemans, Michel X.; Iwata, Satoru; Zenklusen, Rico (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2010-01)
    Motivated by the deterministic wireless information flow model introduced by Avestimehr, Diggavi and Tse, we introduce a deterministic flow model based on combining polylinking systems, a notion introduced by Schrijver and ...
  • Leiserson, Charles E.; Sukha, Jim; Schardl, Tao Benjamin (Association for Computing Machinery (ACM), 2012-02)
    Existing concurrency platforms for dynamic multithreading do not provide repeatable parallel random-number generators. This paper proposes that a mechanism called pedigrees be built into the runtime system to enable efficient ...
  • Eddy, Matthew T.; Ruben, David; Herzfeld, Judith; Griffin, Robert Guy (Elsevier, 2011-12)
    We show that a simple, general, and easily reproducible method for generating non-uniform sampling (NUS) schedules preserves the benefits of random sampling, including inherently reduced sampling artifacts, while removing ...
  • Barry, Jennifer; Kaelbling, Leslie P.; Lozano-Perez, Tomas (AAAI Press/International Joint Conferences on Artificial Intelligence, 2011-07)
    This paper presents an algorithm for finding approximately optimal policies in very large Markov decision processes by constructing a hierarchical model and then solving it approximately. It exploits factored representations ...
  • Fu, Roger Rennan; Weiss, Benjamin P. (American Geophysical Union (AGU), 2012-02)
    We introduce the theoretical basis of a new form of remanent magnetization that likely formed on primitive bodies in the solar system. Accretional detrital remanent magnetization (ADRM) operates via “compass needle”-type ...
  • Zhang, Le; Jiang, Beini; Wu, Yukun; Strouthos, Costas; Su, Jing; Zhou, Xiaobo; Sun, Phillip Zhe (BioMed Central Ltd, 2011-12)
    Abstract Multiscale agent-based modeling (MABM) has been widely used to simulate Glioblastoma Multiforme (GBM) and its progression. At the intracellular level, the MABM approach employs a system of ordinary differential ...
  • Grubb, Michael D. (John Wiley & Sons, Inc., 2011-04)
    A sender who has disclosable information with probability less than one may partially conceal bad news by choosing to withhold information and pooling with uninformed types. The success of this strategy depends on receivers' ...
  • Greenstone, Michael; Kopits, Elizabeth; Wolverton, Ann (Oxford University Press, 2013-01)
    The US government recently developed a range of values representing the monetized global damages associated with an incremental increase in carbon dioxide (CO[subscript 2]) emissions, commonly referred to as the social ...
  • Henry, Shawn Lawton (Springer-Verlag, 2012-07)
    This paper addresses the text customisation needs of people with low vision, dyslexia, and related conditions that impact reading, including people with declining eyesight due to ageing. It reports on a literature review ...
  • Stadanlick, Jason E.; Zhang, Zhiqiang; Lee, Sang-Yun; Hemann, Michael; Biery, Matthew; Carleton, Michael O.; Zambetti, Gerard P.; Anderson, Stephen J.; Oravecz, Tamas; Wiest, David L. (American Association of Immunologists, 2011-06)
    alpha beta and gamma delta lineage T cells are thought to arise from a common CD4–CD8– progenitor in the thymus. However, the molecular pathways controlling fate selection and maturation of these two lineages remain poorly ...
  • Sher, Noa; Bell, George W.; Li, Sharon; Nordman, Jared; Eng, Thomas; Eaton, Matthew Lucas; MacAlpine, David M.; Orr-Weaver, Terry L. (Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory Press, 2011-11)
    Precise DNA replication is crucial for genome maintenance, yet this process has been inherently difficult to study on a genome-wide level in untransformed differentiated metazoan cells. To determine how metazoan DNA ...
  • Nordman, Jared; Li, Sharon; Eng, Thomas; MacAlpine, David M. (Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory Press, 2010-12)
    Polyploid or polytene cells, which have more than 2C DNA content, are widespread throughout nature and present in most differentiated Drosophila tissues. These cells also can display differential replication, that is, ...
  • Berchowitz, Luke Edwin; Gajadhar, Aaron; van Werven, Folkert J.; De Rosa, Alexandra A.; Samoylova, Mariya L.; Brar, Gloria A.; Xu, Yifeng; Xiao, Che; Futcher, Bruce; Weissman, Jonathan S.; White, Forest M.; Amon, Angelika B. (Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory Press, 2013-10)
    Production of haploid gametes from diploid progenitor cells is mediated by a specialized cell division, meiosis, where two divisions, meiosis I and II, follow a single S phase. Errors in progression from meiosis I to meiosis ...
