  • Santambrogio, Marco Domenico (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2009-10)
    Systems on a chip (SoC) can draw various benefits such as adaptability and efficient acceleration of compute-intensive tasks from the inclusion of reconfigurable hardware as a system component. Dynamic reconfiguration ...
  • Browne, Cameron J.; Smith, Robert J.; Bourouiba, Lydia (Springer-Verlag, 2014-07)
    Mass-vaccination campaigns are an important strategy in the global fight against poliomyelitis and measles. The large-scale logistics required for these mass immunisation campaigns magnifies the need for research into the ...
  • Helmreich, Stefan (Graduate Faculty of Political and Social Science, New School University, 2011-01)
    What sort of image does the planet Earth possess at the opening of the 21st century? If in the 1960s, the Whole Earth, the planet as seen from space, became a cold war, proto-environmentalist icon for a fragile ocean planet, ...
  • Perlaza, Samir M.; Fawaz, Nadia; Lasaulce, Samson; Debbah, Merouane (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2010-07)
    We describe a noncooperative interference alignment (IA) technique which allows an opportunistic multiple input multiple output (MIMO) link (secondary) to harmlessly coexist with another MIMO link (primary) in the same ...
  • Lodish, Harvey F.; Flygare, Johan; Chou, Song (John Wiley & Sons, Inc, 2010-03)
    This article reviews the regulation of production of red blood cells at several levels: (1) the ability of erythropoietin and adhesion to a fibronectin matrix to stimulate the rapid production of red cells by inducing ...
  • Alexandre, Sandy (University of Chicago Press, The, 2011)
    Toni Morrison’s novel Beloved capitalizes on the simultaneous gender neutrality and semantic multiplicity of tree images associated with rape and lynching in order to eschew any hierarchy of black oppression, which might ...
  • Khaykovich, Boris; Gubarev, M. V.; Bagdasarova, Yelena S.; Ramsey, B. D.; Moncton, David E. (Elsevier, 2010-12)
    We demonstrate neutron beam focusing by axisymmetric mirror systems based on a pair of mirrors consisting of a confocal ellipsoid and hyperboloid. Such a system, known as a Wolter mirror configuration, is commonly used ...
  • La Marr, Beverly J.; Grant, Catherine E.; Kissel, Steve E.; Prigozhin, Gregory; Bautz, Mark W.; Tsuru, Takeshi Go; Tsunemi, Hiroshi; Dotani, Tadayasu; Hayashida, Kiyoshi; Matsumoto, Hironori (Society of Photo-Optical Instrumentation Engineers, 2009-07)
    Since the launch of the Suzaku X-ray astronomy satellite into low- earth orbit in July, 2005, the performance of the CCD detectors in the X-ray Imaging Spectrometer (XIS) detectors have slowly degraded, as expected, due ...
  • Varanasi, Kripa K.; Deng, Tao; Hsu, Ming; Bhate, Nitin; Smith, Jonathan David (American Institute of Physics (AIP), 2010-12)
    We study frost formation and its impact on icephobic properties of superhydrophobic surfaces. Using an environmental scanning electron microscope, we show that frost nucleation occurs indiscriminately on superhydrophobic ...
  • Siedel, Paul (International Press of Boston, Inc., 2012)
    We consider the Fukaya-Floer A∞-structures arising from a basis of thimbles in a Lefschetz fibration. Particular attention is paid to the relation between these structures in the total space of the fibration, and their ...
  • Auroux, Denis (Scientific and Technical Research Council of Turkey, 2010-07)
    The main goal of this paper is to discuss a symplectic interpretation of Lipshitz, Ozsvath and Thurston's bordered Heegaard-Floer homology in terms of Fukaya categories of symmetric products and Lagrangian correspondences. ...
  • Aaronson, Scott; Drucker, Andrew Donald (Association for Computing Machinery, 2010-06)
    We prove the following surprising result: given any quantum state rho on n qubits, there exists a local Hamiltonian H on poly(n) qubits (e.g., a sum of two-qubit interactions), such that any ground state of H can be used ...
  • Jeon, Sohee; Jang, Jun Young; Youn, Jae Ryoun; Jeong, Jun-ho; Brenner, Howard; Song, Young Seok (Nature Publishing Group, 2013-11)
    Securing fragile nanostructures against external impact is indispensable for offering sufficiently long lifetime in service to nanoengineering products, especially when coming in contact with other substances. Indeed, this ...
  • Rodrigues, Rodrigo; Gupta, Anjali; Fonseca, Pedro; Liskov, Barbara H. (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2008-10)
    Most peer-to-peer lookup schemes keep a small amount of routing state per node, typically logarithmic in the number of overlay nodes. This design assumes that routing information at each member node must be kept small so ...
  • Hezari, Hamid; Guillemin, Victor W. (IOP Publishing, 2012-03)
    We prove that there exists a pair of non-isospectral 1D semiclassical Schrödinger operators whose spectra agree up to O(h∞). In particular, all their semiclassical trace invariants are the same. Our proof is based on an ...
  • Beltran, B.; Bichsel, H.; Cai, B.; Cox, G. A.; Deng, H.; Detwiler, J.; Formaggio, J. A.; Habib, S.; Hallin, A. L.; Hime, A.; Huang, M.; Kraus, C.; Leslie, H. R.; Loach, J. C.; Martin, R.; McGee, S.; Peeters, S. J. M.; Poon, A. W. P.; Prior, G.; Rielage, K.; Robertson, R. G. H.; Smith, M. W. E.; Stonehill, L. C.; Tolich, N.; Van Wechel, T.; Tseung, H. Wan Chan; Wendland, J.; Wilkerson, J. F.; Wright, A. (Institute of Physics Publishing, 2011-07)
    The third phase of the Sudbury Neutrino Observatory (SNO) experiment added an array of [superscript 3]He proportional counters to the detector. The purpose of this neutral-current detection (NCD) array was to observe ...
  • Song, Fuxian; Toksoz, M. Nafi (Society of Exploration Geophysicists, 2011-12)
    Downhole microseismic monitoring is a valuable tool in understanding the efficacy of hydraulic fracturing. Inverting for the moment tensor has gained increasing popularity in recent years as a way to understand the fracturing ...
  • Bileschi, Stanley M. (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2010-05)
    This work describes a fully automatic technique to calibrate a geometric mapping between lidar and video feeds on a mobile ground-based platform. This data association is a crucial first step for any multi-modal scene ...
  • Mosk-Aoyama, Damon; Roughgarden, Tim; Shah, Devavrat (Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics (SIAM), 2010-10)
    We design and analyze a fully distributed algorithm for convex constrained optimization in networks without any consistent naming infrastructure. The algorithm produces an approximately feasible and near-optimal solution ...
  • Chen, Jing; Wang, Jiaping; Yu, Hui; Gumaste, Ashwin; Zheng, S. Q. (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2009-12)
    Light-trail is proposed as a candidate to carry IP traffic over wavelength division multiplexing (WDM) optical networks given its capability of accommodating multi-granularity traffic by time-division multiplexing (TDM). ...
