  • Guth, Alan; Hertzberg, Mark Peter; Prescod-Weinstein, Chanda (American Physical Society, 2015-11)
    Recently there has been significant interest in the claim that dark matter axions gravitationally thermalize and form a Bose-Einstein condensate with a cosmologically long-range correlation. This has potential consequences ...
  • Zhu, Haoxiang (Oxford University Press, 2013-12)
    Dark pools are equity trading systems that do not publicly display orders. Dark pools offer potential price improvements but do not guarantee execution. Informed traders tend to trade in the same direction, crowd on the ...
  • Kohane, Isaac; Lee, Kyungjoon; Brownstein, John S.; Mills, Richard G. (Public Library of Science, 2010-12)
    Background It has been shown that large interdisciplinary teams working across geography are more likely to be impactful. We asked whether the physical proximity of collaborators remained a strong predictor of the ...
  • Jiang, Yang; He, Dongquan; Mao, Qizhi; Zegras, P. Christopher (Springer-Verlag, 2014-11)
    Rapidly increasing transportation energy use in China poses challenges to national energy security and the mitigation of greenhouse gas emissions. Meanwhile, the development of automobile oriented neighborhood structures, ...
  • Huang, Yasheng; Jin, Li; Qian, Yi (MIT Press, 2013-07)
    Most of the economic analyses of the overseas Chinese network focus on trade and investment flows at the country level. In this paper, we analyze the effects of the ethnic Chinese network at the firm level. Contrary to the ...
  • Sterman, John (John Wiley & Sons, Inc., 2010-10)
    Research shows widespread misunderstanding of stocks and flows, even among highly educated adults. People fail to grasp that any stock rises (falls) when the inflow exceeds (is less than) the outflow. Rather, people often ...
  • Klima, Kelly; Morgan, M. Granger; Grossmann, Iris; Emanuel, Kerry Andrew (American Chemical Society, 2011-04)
    Recent dramatic increases in damages caused by tropical cyclones (TCs) and improved understanding of TC physics have led DHS to fund research on intentional hurricane modification. We present a decision analytic assessment ...
  • Rajimehr, Reza; Tootell, Roger B. H. (Society for Neuroscience, 2009-09)
    In humans and other Old World primates, much of visual cortex comprises a set of retinotopic maps, embedded in a cortical sheet with well known, identifiable folding patterns. However, the relationship between these two ...
  • Frydman, Carola; Molly, Raven S. (Springer Science + Business Media B.V., 2011-02)
    The trends in executive pay and labor income tax rates since the 1940s suggest a high elasticity of taxable income with respect to tax policy. By contrast, the level and structure of executive compensation have been largely ...
  • Skow, Bradford (Philosophy of Science Association, 2011-07)
    Is there anything more to temperature than the ordering of things from colder to hotter? Are there also facts, for example, about how much hotter (twice as hot, three times as hot...) one thing is than another? There ...
  • Budish, Eric; Roin, Ben; Williams, Heidi L. (American Economic Association, 2015-07)
    We investigate whether private research investments are distorted away from long-term projects. Our theoretical model highlights two potential sources of this distortion: short-termism and the fixed patent term. Our empirical ...
  • Banerjee, Abhijit; Duflo, Esther (Oxford University Press, 2014-02)
    This article uses variation in access to a targeted lending program to estimate whether firms are credit constrained. While both constrained and unconstrained firms may be willing to absorb all the directed credit that ...
  • Armstrong, Christopher S.; Core, John E.; Guay, Wayne R. (Elsevier B.V., 2014-05)
    Although recent research documents a positive relation between corporate transparency and the proportion of independent directors, the direction of causality is unclear. We examine a regulatory shock that substantially ...
  • Crepon, Bruno; Duflo, Esther; Gurgand, Marc; Rathelot, Roland; Zamora, Philippe (Oxford University Press, 2013-01)
    This article reports the results from a randomized experiment designed to evaluate the direct and indirect (displacement) impacts of job placement assistance on the labor market outcomes of young, educated job seekers in ...
  • Lo, Andrew W.; Brennan, Thomas J. (University of Texas School of Law, 2012-01)
    A common theme in the regulation of financial institutions and transactions is leverage constraints. Although such constraints are implemented in various ways—from minimum net capital rules to margin requirements to credit ...
  • Gershman, Samuel J. (Springer US, 2015-01)
    Studies of reinforcement learning have shown that humans learn differently in response to positive and negative reward prediction errors, a phenomenon that can be captured computationally by positing asymmetric learning ...
  • Ho, Pin; Tu, Kun-Hua; Zhang, Jinshuo; Sun, Congli; Chen, Jingsheng; Liontos, George; Ntetsikas, Konstantinos; Avgeropoulos, Apostolos; Voyles, Paul M.; Ross, Caroline A. (2016-02)
    Perpendicular magnetic anisotropy [Co/Pd][subscript 15] and L1[subscript 0]-FePt nanowire arrays of period 63 nm with linewidths 38 nm and 27 nm and film thickness 27 nm and 20 nm respectively were fabricated using a ...
  • Liao, Qifeng; Willcox, Karen E. (Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics, 2015-01)
    This paper proposes a decomposition approach for uncertainty analysis of systems governed by partial differential equations (PDEs). The system is split into local components using domain decomposition. Our domain-decomposed ...
  • Skirdkov, P. N.; Zvezdin, K. A.; Belanovsky, A. D.; Grollier, J.; Cros, V.; Ross, Caroline A.; Zvezdin, A. K. (American Institute of Physics, 2014-06)
    We demonstrate numerically the ability to displace a magnetic domain wall (DW) by remote spin current injection. We consider a long and narrow magnetic nanostripe with a single DW. The spin-polarized current is injected ...
  • Miao, Guoxing; Mascaro, Mark D.; Nam, C. H.; Ross, Caroline A.; Moodera, Jagadeesh (American Institute of Physics (AIP), 2011-07)
    In a nanowire consisting of a ferromagnet/insulator/superconductor multilayer structure, the superconductivity is shown to depend strongly on the configuration of the magnetic domain walls in the neighboring ferromagnetic ...
