  • Emanuel, Kerry Andrew (American Meteorological Society, 2011-10)
    While many studies of the effects of global warming on hurricanes predict an increase in various metrics of Atlantic basin-wide activity, it is less clear that this signal will emerge from background noise in measures of ...
  • Wunsch, Carl; Heimbach, Patrick (American Meteorological Society, 2009-08)
    The zonally integrated meridional and vertical velocities as well as the enthalpy transports and fluxes in a least squares adjusted general circulation model are used to estimate the top-to-bottom oceanic meridional ...
  • Rosenbaum, Eric Ross (Association for Computing Machinery, 2009-10)
    Expressive inquiry is a process of exploration and discovery within an artistic medium that supports both intuitive play and iterative experimentation. Glowdoodle is a system that enables people to paint with light using ...
  • Adams, Allan; Dyer, Ethan Stanley; Lee, Jae Hoon (Springer-Verlag, 2013-01)
    We identify a simple mechanism by which H-flux satisfying the modified Bianchi identity arises in garden-variety (0, 2) gauged linear sigma models. Taking suitable limits leads to effective gauged linear sigma models with ...
  • Rapoport, Benjamin I.; Kedzierski, Jakub T.; Sarpeshkar, Rahul (Public Library of Science, 2011-06)
    We have developed an implantable fuel cell that generates power through glucose oxidation, producing 3:4 mW cm{2steady-state power and up to 180 mW cm{2 peak power. The fuel cell is manufactured using a novel approach, ...
  • Englert, Christoph; Spannowsky, Michael; McCullough, Matthew Philip (American Physical Society, 2014-01)
    Analyses of boosted Higgs bosons from associated production comprise some of the main search channels for the Higgs boson at the LHC. The gluon-initiated gg → hZ subprocess has largely been ignored in phenomenological ...
  • Viswanathan, Karthik; Chandrasekaran, Aarthi; Srinivasan, Aravind; Raman, Rahul; Sasisekharan, V.; Sasisekharan, Ram (2010-08)
    Influenza A viruses, members of the Orthomyxoviridae family, are responsible for annual seasonal influenza epidemics and occasional global pandemics. The binding of viral coat glycoprotein hemagglutinin (HA) to sialylated ...
  • Jayaraman, Akila; Koh, Xiaoying; Li, Jing; Raman, Rahul; Viswanathan, Karthik; Shriver, Zachary H.; Sasisekharan, Ram (Portland Press, 2012-05)
    The glycoprotein HA (haemagglutinin) on the surface of influenza A virus plays a central role in recognition and binding to specific host cell-surface glycan receptors and in fusion of viral membrane to the host nuclear ...
  • Samsel, Anthony; Seneff, Stephanie (MDPI AG, 2013-04)
    Glyphosate, the active ingredient in Roundup[superscript ®], is the most popular herbicide used worldwide. The industry asserts it is minimally toxic to humans, but here we argue otherwise. Residues are found in the main ...
  • Newey, Whitney K.; Windmeijer, Frank (Econometric Society, 2009-05)
    Using many moment conditions can improve efficiency but makes the usual generalized method of moments (GMM) inferences inaccurate. Two-step GMM is biased. Generalized empirical likelihood (GEL) has smaller bias, but the ...
  • Bliss, Daniel W., Jr.; Forsythe, Keith W.; Davis, Shakti K.; Fawcett, Glenn S.; Rabideau, Daniel J.; Horowitz, Larry L.; Kraut, Shawn (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2009-03)
    Multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) extensions to radar systems enable a number of advantages compared to traditional approaches. These advantages include improved angle estimation and target detection. In this paper, ...
  • Chen, Anthony J. -W.; Britton, Michael; Turner, Gary R.; Vytlacil, Jason; Thompson, Todd Wesley; D’Esposito, Mark (Frontiers Research Foundation, 2012-06)
    Humans survive in environments that contain a vast quantity and variety of visual information. All items of perceived visual information must be represented within a limited number of brain networks. The human brain requires ...
  • Lieberman, Chad E.; Willcox, Karen E. (Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics, 2012-07)
    Inference of model parameters is one step in an engineering process often ending in predictions that support decision in the form of design or control. Incorporation of end goals into the inference process leads to more ...
  • McKinley, Gareth H.; Clasen, C.; Bico, J.; Entov, V. M. (Cambridge University Press, 2009-09)
    This paper discusses the breakup of capillary jets of dilute polymer solutions and the dynamics associated with the transition from dripping to jetting. High-speed digital video imaging reveals a new scenario of transition ...
  • O'Leary, Michael Boyer; Mortensen, Mark (INFORMS, 2009-06)
    Research regarding geographically dispersed teams (GDTs) is increasingly common and has yielded many insights regarding the effects of spatio-temporal and socio-demographic factors on GDT functioning and performance. Largely ...
  • Ritvo, Harriet (Oxford University Press, 2012-04)
    The nineteenth century saw numerous transfers and attempted transfers of animal populations, mostly as the result of the spread of European agriculture. The exchange of animal populations facilitated by the acclimatization ...

    Cheung, Clifford; Nomura, Yasunori; Thaler, Jesse (Springer Berlin / Heidelberg, 2010-03)
    Supersymmetric phenomenology has been largely bound to the hypothesis that supersymmetry breaking originates from a single source. In this paper, we relax this underlying assumption and consider a multiplicity of sectors ...
  • Thaler, Jesse; Thomas, Zachary Talbott (Springer Berlin/Heidelberg, 2011-07)
    Supersymmetric collider phenomenology depends crucially on whether the lightest observable-sector supersymmetric particle (LOSP) decays, and if so, what the LOSP decay products are. For instance, in SUSY models where the ...
  • Dunkel, Juliane; Schulz, Andreas S. (Institute for Operations Research and the Management Sciences (INFORMS), 2012-11)
    The question as to whether the Gomory-Chvátal closure of a nonrational polytope is a polytope has been a longstanding open problem in integer programming. In this paper, we answer this question in the affirmative by combining ...
  • Brynjolfsson, Erik; Hu, Yu (Jeffrey); Simester, Duncan (Institute for Operations Research and the Management Sciences (INFORMS), 2011-06)
    Many markets have historically been dominated by a small number of best-selling products. The Pareto principle, also known as the 80/20 rule, describes this common pattern of sales concentration. However, information ...
