  • Korolev, Kirill Sergeevich (Public Library of Science, 2013-03)
    Species expand their geographical ranges following an environmental change, long range dispersal, or a new adaptation. Range expansions not only bring an ecological change, but also affect the evolution of the expanding ...
  • Craig, Nathaniel; Stolarski, Daniel; Thaler, Jesse (Springer-Verlag, 2011-11)
    We introduce a novel composite Higgs theory based on con ning supersymmetric QCD. Supersymmetric duality plays a key role in this construction, with a "fat" Higgs boson emerging as a dual magnetic degree of freedom charged ...
  • Pindyck, Robert S. (Oxford University Press, 2012)
    Climate policy is complicated by the considerable uncertainties concerning the benefits and costs of abatement. We do not even know the probability distributions for future temperatures and impacts, making benefit–cost ...
  • Orji, Uzoma A.; Remscrim, Zachary N.; Laughman, Christopher Reed; Leeb, Steven B.; Wichakool, Warit; Schantz, Christopher James; Cox, Robert A.; Paris, James; Kirtley, James L., Jr.; Norford, Leslie Keith (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2010-03)
    Harmonic analysis of motor current has been used to track the speed of motors for sensorless control. Algorithms exist that track the speed of a motor given a dedicated stator current measurement, for example. Harmonic ...
  • Vitale, Steven A.; Wyatt, Peter W.; Checka, Nisha; Kedzierski, Jakub T.; Keast, Craig L. (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2010-02)
    Ultralow-power electronics will expand the technological capability of handheld and wireless devices by dramatically improving battery life and portability. In addition to innovative low-power design techniques, a complementary ...
  • Rock, Jeremy Michael; Amon, Angelika B. (Elsevier Ltd., 2009-12)
    Mitosis is governed by the oscillation of cyclin dependent kinase (CDK) activity and ubiquitin-dependent proteolysis. Entry into mitosis is initiated by mitotic cyclin-CDK activation. Anaphase onset occurs upon activation ...
  • Ruan, Liangzhong; Lau, Vincent K. N.; Win, Moe Z. (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2012-07)
    Attributed by its breakthrough performance in interference networks, interference alignment (IA) has attracted great attention in the last few years. However, despite the tremendous works dedicated to IA, the feasibility ...
  • Sun, Ruoshi; Ceder, Gerbrand (American Physical Society, 2011-12)
    We use first-principles computations to investigate whether the band gap of pyrite FeS₂ can be increased by alloying in order to make it a more effective photovoltaic material. In addition to the isostructural compounds ...
  • Ahn, Jooeun; Hogan, Neville (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2010-08)
    Dynamically entraining human gait with periodic torque from a robot may provide an approach to walking therapy that is uniquely supportive of normal biological function. To test the feasibility of this approach we perturbed ...
  • Kashiwagi, Manabu; Liu, Linbo; Chu, Kengyeh K.; Sun, Chen-Hsin; Tanaka, Atsushi; Gardecki, Joseph A.; Tearney, Guillermo J. (Public Library of Science, 2014-07)
    The presence of cholesterol crystals is a hallmark of atherosclerosis, but until recently, such crystals have been considered to be passive components of necrotic plaque cores. Recent studies have demonstrated that ...
  • Sieron, Scott B.; Zhang, Fuqing; Emanuel, Kerry Andrew (American Geophysical Union (AGU), 2013-10)
    This study evaluates the potential of a proposed technique in using satellite-borne radiometer measurements and weather analyses to estimate the intensity of tropical cyclones. This theory shows that intensity is essentially ...
  • Mikkelsen, D R; Candy, J; Waltz, R E; White, Anne E.; Howard, Nathaniel Thomas; Greenwald, Martin J. (IOP Publishing, 2011-09)
    This paper describes the use of nonlinear gyrokinetic simulations to assess the feasibility of a new correlation electron cyclotron emission (CECE) diagnostic that has been proposed for the Alcator C-Mod tokamak (Marmar ...
  • Rossi, Stefano; Colazza, Alessandra; Petrarca, Maurizio; Castelli, Enrico; Cappa, Paolo; Krebs, Hermano Igo (Public Library of Science, 2013-09)
    We are designing a pediatric exoskeletal ankle robot (pediatric Anklebot) to promote gait habilitation in children with Cerebral Palsy (CP). Few studies have evaluated how much or whether the unilateral loading of a wearable ...
  • Li, Shiguang; Xu, Zhiguang; Yoon, Soon Fatt; Fang, Zhong Ping (Society of Photo-optical Instrumentation Engineers, 2011-06)
    This paper reports the feasibility of optical coherence tomography (OCT) technology for inspection of bonding quality of microfluidic devices in manufacturing environments. A compact optical-fiber–based OCT is developed ...
  • Zhou, Huihui; Desimone, Robert (Elsevier B.V., 2011-06)
    When we search for a target in a crowded visual scene, we often use the distinguishing features of the target, such as color or shape, to guide our attention and eye movements. To investigate the neural mechanisms of ...
  • Glassman, Elena L.; Singh, Rishabh; Miller, Robert C. (Association for Computing Machinery (ACM), 2014-03)
    Open-ended homework problems such as coding assignments give students a broad range of freedom for the design of solutions. We aim to use the diversity in correct solutions to enhance student learning by automatically ...
  • Grogan, Paul Thomas; de Weck, Olivier L. (American Society of Civil Engineers, 2012-04)
    Future human space exploration will require large amounts of resources for shielding and building materials, propellants, and consumables. A space-based resource economy could produce, transport, and store resource at ...
  • Medard, Muriel; Sundararajan, Jay-Kumar; Sadeghi, Parastoo (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2009-06)
    We propose a new feedback-based adaptive coding scheme for a packet erasure broadcast channel. The main performance metric of interest is the delay. We consider two types of delay - decoding delay and delivery delay. ...
  • Sanchez, Alvaro; Gore, Jeff (Public Library of Science, 2013-04)
    The evolutionary spread of cheater strategies can destabilize populations engaging in social cooperative behaviors, thus demonstrating that evolutionary changes can have profound implications for population dynamics. At ...
  • Shrader, Brooke E.; Permuter, Haim (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2009-07)
    In this work, we find the capacity of a compound finite-state channel (FSC) with time-invariant deterministic feedback. We consider the use of fixed length block codes over the compound channel. Our achievability result ...
