  • Sanchez, Alvaro; Dai, Lei; Gore, Jeff; Chen, Andrew I. (Nature Publishing Group, 2014-05)
    Ecosystems can undergo sudden shifts to undesirable states, but recent studies with simple single-species ecosystems have demonstrated that advance warning can be provided by the slowing down of population dynamics near a ...
  • Roberts, Sean Thomas; Petersen, Poul B.; Ramasesha, Krupa; Tokmakoff, Andrei (Springer-Verlag, 2009-01)
    We use peakshift, transient grating, and 2D IR measurements to probe the dynamics of NaOD solutions. Our experiments suggest that OD- possesses a stable solvation shell and signatures of fast intermolecular proton transfer ...
  • Shen, Yichen; Petrova, Olga; Mellado, Paula; Daunheimer, Stephen; Cumings, John; Tchernyshyov, Oleg (Institute of Physics Publishing, 2012-03)
    We model the dynamics of magnetization in an artificial analogue of spin ice specializing to the case of a honeycomb network of connected magnetic nanowires. The inherently dissipative dynamics is mediated by the emission ...
  • Hannan, Veronica; Zegras, P. Christopher (Transportation Research Board of the National Academies, 2012-12)
    Little research has focused on how the factors that influence travel behavior change in rapidly developing and increasingly motorized cities. This paper examines household motor vehicle ownership and focuses on potential ...
  • Ardekani, Arezoo; Sharma, Vandana; McKinley, Gareth H. (Cambridge University Press, 2010-12)
    The spatiotemporal evolution of a viscoelastic jet depends on the relative magnitude of capillary, viscous, inertial and elastic stresses. The interplay of capillary and elastic stresses leads to the formation of very thin ...
  • Sing, Charles E.; Alexander-Katz, Alfredo (American Institute of Physics, 2011-07)
    Collapsed polymers in solution represent an oft-overlooked area of polymer physics, however recent studies of biopolymers in the bloodstream have suggested that the physics of polymer globules are not only relevant but ...
  • Hidalgo, Juan J.; MacMinn, Christopher W.; Juanes, Ruben (Elsevier, 2013-07)
    During geologic storage of carbon dioxide (CO[subscript 2]), trapping of the buoyant CO[subscript 2] after injection is essential in order to minimize the risk of leakage into shallower formations through a fracture or ...
  • Jung, Sunghwan; Winter, Amos; Hosoi, Anette E. (Elsevier B.V., 2011-05)
    Numerous animals live in, and locomote through, subsea soils. To move in a medium dominated by frictional interactions, many of these animals have adopted unique burrowing strategies. This paper presents a burrowing model ...
  • Sander, Michelle Yen-Ling; Birge, Jonathan R.; Benedick, Andrew J.; Crespo, Helder M.; Kaertner, Franz X. (Optical Society of America, 2009-03)
    An extensive one-dimensional laser model based on dispersion managed mode locking is presented that accurately describes the pulse dynamics of octave-spanning titanium:sapphire lasers generating sub-two-cycle pulses. By ...
  • Kerr, Catherine E.; Hamalainen, Matti S.; Jones, Stephanie R.; Wan, Qian; Pritchett, Dominique Leon; Moore, Christopher I. (Public Library of Science, 2011-09)
    Background Behavioral paradigms applied during human recordings in electro- and magneto- encephalography (EEG and MEG) typically require 1–2 hours of data collection. Over this time scale, the natural fluctuations in ...
  • Acemoglu, Daron; Bimpikis, Kostas; Ozdaglar, Asuman E. (The Econometric Society, 2014-01)
    We develop a model of information exchange through communication and investigate its implications for information aggregation in large societies. An underlying state determines payoffs from different actions. Agents decide ...
  • Isik, Leyla; Meyers, Ethan M.; Leibo, Joel Z.; Poggio, Tomaso A. (American Physiological Society, 2013-10)
    The human visual system can rapidly recognize objects despite transformations that alter their appearance. The precise timing of when the brain computes neural representations that are invariant to particular transformations, ...
  • Bustos, Sebastian; Gomez, Charles; Hausmann, Ricardo; Hidalgo, Cesar A. (Public Library of Science, 2012-11)
    In economic systems, the mix of products that countries make or export has been shown to be a strong leading indicator of economic growth. Hence, methods to characterize and predict the structure of the network connecting ...
  • Skow, Bradford (Scholarly Publishing Office, University of Michigan Library, 2010-01)
    Maybe there is something rather than nothing because the nothingness force acted on itself, and when the nothing nothings itself it produces something. Robert Nozick suggested this as a candidate explanation of the fact ...
  • Athey, Susan; Ellison, Glenn (Wiley Blackwell, 2014-04)
    This paper considers a dynamic model of the evolution of open-source software projects, focusing on the evolution of quality, contributing programmers, and users who contribute customer support to other users. Programmers ...
  • Chen, Hsieh; Alexander-Katz, Alfredo (American Physical Society (APS), 2011-09)
    Using hydrodynamic simulations we examine the behavior of single polymers in a confined colloidal suspension under flow. We study the conformations of both, collapsed and noncollapsed polymers. Our results show that the ...
  • Ghoshal, Gourab; Blumm, Nicholas; Forro, Zalan; Schich, Maximilian; Bianconi, Ginestra; Bouchaud, Jean-Philippe; Barabasi, Albert-Laszlo (American Physical Society, 2012-09)
    The world is addicted to ranking: everything, from the reputation of scientists, journals, and universities to purchasing decisions is driven by measured or perceived differences between them. Here, we analyze empirical ...
  • Rapoport, Elizabeth Ashera; Beach, Geoffrey Stephen (American Institute of Physics (AIP), 2012-02)
    The dynamics of fluid-borne superparamagnetic bead transport by field-driven domain walls in submicrometer ferromagnetic tracks is studied experimentally together with numerical and analytical modeling. Experiments show ...
  • Wu, Weisheng; Cheng, Yong; Keller, Cheryl A.; Ernst, Jason; Kumar, Swathi Ashok; Mishra, Tejaswini; Morrissey, Christapher; Dorman, Christine M.; Chen, Kuan-Bei; Drautz, Daniela; Giardine, Belinda; Shibata, Yoichiro; Song, Lingyun; Pimkin, Max; Crawford, Gregory E.; Furey, Terrence S.; Kellis, Manolis; Miller, Webb; Taylor, James; Schuster, Stephan C.; Zhang, Yu; Chiaromonte, Francesca; Blobel, Gerd A.; Weiss, Mitchell J.; Hardison, Ross C. (Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory Press, 2011-07)
    Interplays among lineage-specific nuclear proteins, chromatin modifying enzymes, and the basal transcription machinery govern cellular differentiation, but their dynamics of action and coordination with transcriptional ...
  • Kingsbery, James; Levin, Alexander; Preygel, Anatoly; Silva, Cesar E. (American Institute of Mathematical Sciences, 2011-02)
    There is a natural continuous realization of the one-sided Bernoulli shift on the [p] -adic integers as the map that shifts the coefficients of the [p] -adic expansion to the left. We study this map's Mahler power series ...
