  • Laflamme, Simon; Connor, Jerome J. (Society of Photo-Optical Instrumentation Engineers, 2009-04)
    This paper proposes an adaptive neural network composed of Gaussian radial functions for mapping the behavior of civil structures controlled with magnetorheological dampers. The online adaptation takes into account the ...
  • Polat, Baris E.; Seto, Jennifer E.; Blankschtein, Daniel; Langer, Robert (Wiley Blackwell, 2011-02)
    This study investigated the effect of sodium lauryl sulfate (SLS) on skin structural perturbation when utilized simultaneously with low-frequency sonophoresis (LFS). Pig full-thickness skin (FTS) and pig split-thickness ...
  • Palacios, Tomas; Hsu, Allen Long; Wang, Han (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2010-06)
    Graphene, a one-atom-thick layer of carbon atoms arranged in a honeycomb lattice, has recently attracted great interest among physicists and engineers. The combination of the unique properties of graphene with new device ...
  • Couturier, Matthieu; Thomas, John; Dierks, Meghan; Wierz, David; Psaty, Bruce M.; Leveson, Nancy G.; Finkelstein, Stan Neil (Multiscience, 2012-09)
    While engineering techniques are used in the development of medical devices and have been applied to individual healthcare processes, such as the use of checklists in surgery and ICUs, the application of system engineering ...
  • Grodzinsky, Alan J.; Ahn, Andrew C.; Baikie, Iain D.; Gow, Brian J.; Martinsen, Ørjan G.; Zhao, Min (American Physical Society, 2012-06)
    The Kelvin probe measures surface electrical potential without making physical contact with the specimen. It relies on capacitive coupling between an oscillating metal tip that is normal to a specimen's surface. Kelvin ...
  • Gerhard, Felipe; Haslinger, Robert Heinz; Pipa, Gordon (MIT Press, 2011-05)
    Statistical models of neural activity are integral to modern neuroscience. Recently interest has grown in modeling the spiking activity of populations of simultaneously recorded neurons to study the effects of correlations ...
  • Rumble, Stephen M.; Stutsman, Ryan; Levis, Philip; Mazières, David; Zeldovich, Nickolai (Association for Computing Machinery (ACM), 2009-08)
    Energy is the critical limiting resource to mobile computing devices. Correspondingly, an operating system must track, provision, and ration how applications consume energy. The emergence of third-party application stores ...
  • Mannor, Shie; Tsitsiklis, John N. (Elsevier, 2008-04)
    We consider a finite two-player zero-sum game with vector-valued rewards. We study the question of whether a given polyhedral set D is “approachable,” that is, whether Player 1 (the “decision maker”) can guarantee that the ...
  • Chen, Heidi Q.; Honda, Tomonori; Yang, Maria (ASME International, 2013-05)
    This paper investigates ways to obtain consumer preferences for technology products to help designers identify the key attributes that contribute to a product's market success. A case study of residential photovoltaic ...
  • Finkelstein, Amy; Luttmer, Erzo F. P.; Notowidigdo, Matthew J. (American Economic Association, 2009-05)
    In this paper, we outline what we believe are the main possible approaches to estimating health state dependence. We distinguish two broad classes of empirical approaches: approaches based on individuals’ revealed demand ...
  • Fang, Xinding; Fehler, Michael; Zhu, Zhenya; Chen, Tianrun; Brown, Stephen; Cheng, Arthur; Toksoz, M. Nafi (Society of Exploration Geophysicists, 2013-04)
    Formation elastic properties near a borehole may be altered from their original state due to the stress concentration around the borehole. This could result in a biased estimation of formation properties but could provide ...
  • Tian, Lin; Cheng, Yong-Qiang; Shan, Zhi-Wei; Li, Ju; Wang, Cheng-Cai; Han, Xiao-Dong; Sun, Jun; Ma, Evan (Nature Publishing Group, 2012-01)
    The ideal elastic limit is the upper bound to the stress and elastic strain a material can withstand. This intrinsic property has been widely studied for crystalline metals, both theoretically and experimentally. For ...
  • De Luca, A.; Franchini, Fabio (American Physical Society, 2013-01)
    We analytically compute the Renyi entropies for the RSOS models, representing a wide class of exactly solvable models with multicritical conformal points described by unitary minimal models and Z[subscript n] parafermions. ...
  • Tellex, Stefanie A.; Kollar, Thomas Fleming; Dickerson, Steven R.; Walter, Matthew R.; Banerjee, Ashis; Teller, Seth; Roy, Nicholas (Association for the Advancement of Artificial Intelligence, 2011)
    In order for robots to engage in dialog with human teammates, they must have the ability to map between words in the language and aspects of the external world. A solution to this symbol grounding problem (Harnad, 1990) ...
  • Park, Sunghyun; Krishna, Tushar; Chen, Chia-Hsin; Daya, Bhavya Kishor; Chandrakasan, Anantha P.; Peh, Li-Shiuan (Association for Computing Machinery (ACM), 2012-06)
    In this paper, we present a case study of our chip prototype of a 16-node 4x4 mesh NoC fabricated in 45nm SOI CMOS that aims to simultaneously optimize energy-latency-throughput for unicasts, multicasts and broadcasts. We ...
  • Madnick, Stuart E.; Li, Xitong; Zhu, Hongwei; Fan, Yushun (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2009-07)
    The potential benefits of Web services composition heavily rely on semantic interoperability, i.e., the ability to exchange data meaningfully amongst Web services. Context heterogeneity, which refers to different implicit ...
  • Levine, Lionel; Fey, Anne; Wilson, David B. (American Physical Society, 2010-09)
    A popular theory of self-organized criticality predicts that the stationary density of the Abelian sandpile model equals the threshold density of the corresponding fixed-energy sandpile. We recently announced that this ...
  • Ito, Takehiro; Demaine, Erik D. (Springer-Verlag, 2011-05)
    The subset sum problem is a well-known NP-complete problem in which we wish to find a packing (subset) of items (integers) into a knapsack with capacity so that the sum of the integers in the packing is at most the capacity ...
  • Indyk, Piotr; Venkatasubramanian, Suresh (Elsevier, 2003-02)
    The problem of geometric point set matching has been studied extensively in the domain of computational geometry, and has many applications in areas such as computer vision, computational chemistry, and pattern recognition. ...
  • Campbell, Trevor David; How, Jonathan P. (Association for Uncertainty in Artificial Intelligence Press, 2014-07)
    This paper presents an approximate method for performing Bayesian inference in models with conditional independence over a decentralized network of learning agents. The method first employs variational inference on each ...
