  • Malloy, Timothy F.; Zaunbrecher, Virginia M.; Batteate, Christina; Blake, Ann; Carroll, William F.; Corbett, Charles J.; Hansen, Steffen Foss; Lempert, Robert; Linkov, Igor; McFadden, Roger; Ostrom, Nancy; Romero, Michelle; Schoenung, Julie; Seager, Thomas; Sinsheimer, Peter; Thayer, Kristina; Moran, Kelly H.; Olivetti, Elsa A. (Environmental Health Perspectives, 2016-10)
    Background: Decision analysis—a systematic approach to solving complex problems —offers tools and frameworks to support decision making that are increasingly being applied to environmental challenges. Alternatives analysis ...
  • Carayon, Pascale; Hancock, Peter; Leveson, Nancy; Noy, Ian; Sznelwar, Laerte; van Hootegem, Geert; Leveson, Nancy G (Taylor & Francis, 2015-04)
    Traditional efforts to deal with the enormous problem of workplace safety have proved insufficient, as they have tended to neglect the broader sociotechnical environment that surrounds workers. Here, we advocate a ...
  • Stibe, Agnis (Springer, Cham, 2015-06)
    Persuasive technologies are commonly engineered to change behavior and attitudes of users through persuasion and social influence without using coercion and deception. While earlier research has been extensively focused ...
  • Brezinski, Mark E. (Hindawi Publishing Corporation, 2012)
    The recent paper entitled by K. C. Lee et al. (2011) establishes nonlocal macroscopic quantum correlations, which they term “entanglement”, under ambient conditions. Photon(s)-phonon entanglements are established within ...
  • Stojanovic, Vladimir Marko; Batten, Christopher; Joshi, Ajay J.; Beamer, Scott; Asanovic, Krste (Association for Computing Machinery, 2009-06)
    Future single-board multi-socket systems may be unable to deliver the needed memory bandwidth electrically due to power limitations, which will hurt their ability to drive performance improvements. Energy efficient o ...
  • Harrow, Aram W.; Lee, James R.; Peres, Yuval; Brandao, Fernando G.S.L. (Association for Computing Machinery (ACM), 2014-01)
    Recall the classical hypothesis testing setting with two convex sets of probability distributions P and Q. One receives either n i.i.d. samples from a distribution p ∈ P or from a distribution q ∈ Q and wants to decide ...
  • Kochman, Yuval; Mazumdar, Arya; Polyanskiy, Yury (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2012-07)
    This paper introduces the problem of joint source-channel coding in the setup where channel errors are adversarial and the distortion is worst case. Unlike the situation in the case of stochastic source-channel model, the ...
  • Alemzadeh, Homa; Raman, Jaishankar; Kalbarczyk, Zbigniew; Iyer, Ravishankar K.; Leveson, Nancy G (Public Library of Science, 2016-04)
    Background Use of robotic systems for minimally invasive surgery has rapidly increased during the last decade. Understanding the causes of adverse events and their impact on patients in robot-assisted surgery will help ...
  • Goldfarb, Avi; Tucker, Catherine Elizabeth (American Marketing Association, 2011-04)
    The authors examine whether the growth of the Internet has reduced the effectiveness of government regulation of advertising. They combine nonexperimental variation in local regulation of offline alcohol advertising with ...
  • Anderson, Eric T.; Simester, Duncan (American Marketing Association, 2013-08)
    Standard models of competition predict that firms will sell less when competitors target their customers with advertising. This is particularly true in mature markets with many competitors that sell relatively undifferentiated ...
  • Aaronson, Scott; Drucker, Andrew Donald (Springer Berlin / Heidelberg, 2011-06)
    We study the power of classical and quantum algorithms equipped with nonuniform advice, in the form of a coin whose bias encodes useful information. This question takes on particular importance in the quantum case, due to ...
  • Friedel, R.; Whelan, P.; Madden, D.; Morley, S.; Su, Yi-Jiun; O’Brien, T. P.; Huston, S. L.; Johnston, W. R.; Guild, T. B.; Lindstrom, C. D.; Roth, C. J.; Quinn, R. A.; Ginet, Gregory P. (Springer Netherlands, 2013-03)
    The radiation belts and plasma in the Earth’s magnetosphere pose hazards to satellite systems which restrict design and orbit options with a resultant impact on mission performance and cost. For decades the standard space ...
  • Vander Heiden, Matthew G.; Lunt, Sophia Yunkyungkwon (Annual Reviews, 2011-11)
    Warburg's observation that cancer cells exhibit a high rate of glycolysis even in the presence of oxygen (aerobic glycolysis) sparked debate over the role of glycolysis in normal and cancer cells. Although it has been ...
  • Bush, John W. M. (Les Editions de l’Ecole Polytechnique, 2013)
    We consider the aerodynamics of football, specifically, the interaction between a ball in flight and the ambient air. Doing so allows one to account for the characteristic range and trajectories of balls in flight, as well ...
  • Liu, Harris; Kim, Yoojeong; Mello, Kerrianne; Lovaasen, John; Shah, Apoorva; Rice, Norman; Pappas, Daphne; Yim, Jacqueline H.; Klibanov, Alexander M (Springer US, 2013-10)
    The currently used multistep chemical synthesis for making surfaces antimicrobial by attaching to them hydrophobic polycations is replaced herein by an aerosol-assisted plasma deposition procedure. To this end, ...
  • Li, Guohui; Molina, Luisa Tan; Bei, Naifang; Tie, Xuexi (European Geosciences Union, 2011-06)
    In the present study, the impact of aerosols on the photochemistry in Mexico City is evaluated using the WRF-CHEM model for the period from 24 to 29 March during the MCMA-2006/MILAGRO campaign. An aerosol radiative module ...
  • Lacirignola, Joseph J.; Milstein, Adam B.; Aldridge, John; Richardson, Jonathan M. (The International Society for Optical Engineering, 2009-05)
    An essential milestone in the development of lidar for biological aerosol detection is accurate characterization of agent, simulant, and interferent scattering signatures. MIT Lincoln Laboratory has developed the Standoff ...
  • Chattopadhyay, Saptarshi; Hatton, T. Alan; Rutledge, Gregory C. (Springer US, 2015-07)
    Aerosol filtration using electrospun cellulose acetate filters with different mean fiber diameters is reported, and the results are compared with those for two conventional filter media, a glass fiber filter and a cellulose ...
  • Joung, Young soo; Buie, Cullen (Nature Publishing Group, 2015-01)
    Aerosols are investigated because of their significant impact on the environment and human health. To date, windblown dust and sea salt from sea spray through bursting bubbles have been considered the chief mechanisms of ...
  • Ford, B.; Heald, Colette L. (Copernicus GmbH, 2013-09)
    We investigate the seasonality in aerosols over the Southeastern United States using observations from several satellite instruments (MODIS, MISR, CALIOP) and surface network sites (IMPROVE, SEARCH, AERONET). We find that ...
