    We report on an all-sky search for periodic gravitational waves in the frequency band 50–800 Hz and with the frequency time derivative in the range of 0 through -6×10[superscript -9]  Hz/s. Such a signal could be produced ...
  • Ritvo, Harriet (Elsevier, 2009-05)
    Book review of: D. Graham Burnett, Trying Leviathan: The Nineteenth-Century Court Case That Put the Whale on Trial and Challenged the Order of Nature, Princeton University Press (2007) ISBN 978-0691129501 xvi + 266 pp., $32.95.
  • Indyk, Piotr; Szarek, Stanislaw (Springer-Verlag, 2010-08)
    It has been known since 1970’s that the N-dimensional ℓ[subscript 1]-space contains almost Euclidean subspaces whose dimension is Ω(N). However, proofs of existence of such subspaces were probabilistic, hence non-constructive, ...
  • Lee, Yin Tat; Orecchia, Lorenzo; Kelner, Jonathan Adam; Sidford, Aaron D. (Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics, 2014)
    In this paper, we introduce a new framework for approximately solving flow problems in capacitated, undirected graphs and apply it to provide asymptotically faster algorithms for the maximum s-t flow and maximum concurrent ...
  • Nahmod, Andrea R.; Pavlović, Nataša; Staffilani, Gigliola (Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics, 2013-01)
    In this paper we show that after suitable data randomization there exists a large set of supercritical periodic initial data, in $H^{-\alpha}(\boldsymbol{T}^d)$ for some $\alpha(d) > 0$, for both two- and three-dimensional ...

  • Lewis, Joel Brewster (Electronic Journal of Combinatorics, 2009-02)
    We study the problem of counting alternating permutations avoiding collections of permutation patterns including 132. We construct a bijection between the set S[subscript n](132) of 132-avoiding permutations and the set ...

  • Frank, Christopher Lee; Tsai, Li-Huei (Elsevier, 2009-05)
