  • Sather, Aaron C.; Lee, Hong Geun; Colombe, James Robert; Zhang, Anni; Buchwald, Stephen Leffler (Springer Nature, 2015-08)
    Contemporary organic chemists employ a broad range of catalytic and stoichiometric methods to construct molecules for applications in the material sciences, and as pharmaceuticals, agrochemicals, and sensors. The utility ...
  • Bidle, Kay D.; Van Mooy, Benjamin A. S.; Edwards, Bethanie Rachele (National Academy of Sciences (U.S.), 2015-05)
    Diatoms and other phytoplankton play a crucial role in the global carbon cycle, fixing CO[subscript 2] into organic carbon, which may then be exported to depth via sinking particles. The molecular diversity of this organic ...
  • Mukherjee, Sayan; Yurkovetsky, Zoya; Clyde, Merlise; Marks, Jeffrey R.; Lokshin, Anna E.; Lo, Joseph Y.; Jesneck, Jonathan Lee (Springer (Biomed Central Ltd.), 2009-05)
    Background Because screening mammography for breast cancer is less effective for premenopausal women, we investigated the feasibility of a diagnostic blood test using serum proteins. Methods This study used a set ...
  • Groß, Andrea; Kremling, Michael; Marr, Isabella; Kubinski, David; Visser, Jacobus; Moos, Ralf; Tuller, Harry L. (MDPI AG, 2013-04)
    An impedimetric NO[subscript x] dosimeter based on the NO[subscript x] sorption material KMnO[subscript 4] is proposed. In addition to its application as a low level NO[subscript x] dosimeter, KMnO[subscript 4] shows ...
  • Edrissi, Bahar; Taghizadeh, Koli; Moeller, Benjamin C.; Kracko, Dean; Doyle-Eisele, Melanie; Swenberg, James A.; Dedon, Peter C. (American Chemical Society (ACS), 2013-10)
    With formaldehyde as the major source of endogenous N[superscript 6]-formyllysine protein adducts, we quantified endogenous and exogenous N[superscript 6]-formyllysine in the nasal epithelium of rats exposed by inhalation ...
  • Gruber, Jonathan; Kleiner, Samuel A. (American Economic Association, 2012-02)
    Hospitals now represent one of the largest union sectors of the US economy, and there is particular concern about the impact of strikes on patient welfare. We analyze the effects of nurses' strikes in hospitals on patient ...
  • Olken, Benjamin A. (American Economic Association, 2009-10)
    This paper investigates the impact of television and radio on social capital in Indonesia. I use two sources of variation in signal reception -- one based on Indonesia's mountainous terrain, and a second based on the ...
  • Autor, David H.; Houseman, Susan N. (American Economic Association, 2010-07)
    Temporary-help jobs offer rapid entry into paid employment, but they are typically brief and it is unknown whether they foster longer term employment. We utilize the unique structure of Detroit's welfare-to- work program ...
  • Blundell, Katherine M.; Schechter, Paul L.; Morgan, Nicholas D.; Jarvis, Matt J.; Rawlings, Steve; Tonry, John L. (IOP Publishing, 2010-10)
    We present an analysis of observations of the doubly lensed double hot spot in the giant radio galaxy J0816+5003 from MERLIN, MDM, WIYN, WHT, UKIRT, and the VLA. The images of the two hot spot components span a factor of ...
  • Yang, Di; Meadows, Mark; Inderwiesen, Phil; Landa, Jorge; Fehler, Michael; Malcolm, Alison E. (Society of Exploration Geophysicists, 2015-09)
    Time-lapse seismic data are widely used to monitor reservoir changes. Qualitative comparisons between baseline and monitor data sets or image volumes provide information about fluid and pressure effects within the reservoir ...
  • Radko, T.; Bulters, A.; Flanagan, J. D.; Campin, Jean-Michel (American Meteorological Society, 2014-05)
    Three-dimensional dynamics of thermohaline staircases are investigated using a series of basin-scale staircase-resolving numerical simulations. The computational domain and forcing fields are chosen to reflect the size and ...
  • Hohm, Olaf; Siegel, Warren; Zwiebach, Barton (Springer-Verlag, 2014-02)
    We develop doubled-coordinate field theory to determine the α ′ corrections to the massless sector of oriented bosonic closed string theory. Our key tool is a string current algebra of free left-handed bosons that makes ...
  • Bonawitz, Elizabeth; Shafto, Patrick; Gweon, Hyowon; Schulz, Laura E.; Goodman, Noah D.; Spelke, Elizabeth (Elsevier B.V., 2011-01)
    Motivated by computational analyses, we look at how teaching affects exploration and discovery. In Experiment 1, we investigated children’s exploratory play after an adult pedagogically demonstrated a function of a toy, ...
  • Schulz, Laura E.; Bonawitz, Elizabeth; Shafto, Patrick; Gweon, Hyowon; Chang, Isabel Y.; Katz, Sydney (Cognitive Science Society, Inc., 2009-07)
    How does explicit instruction affect exploratory play and learning? We present a model that captures pedagogical assumptions (adapted from Shafto and Goodman, 2008) and test the model with a novel experiment looking at ...
  • Hull, Chris; Zwiebach, Barton (IOP Publishing, 2009-09)
    The zero modes of closed strings on a torus — the torus coordinates plus dual coordinates conjugate to winding number — parameterize a doubled torus. In closed string field theory, the string field depends on all zero-modes ...
  • Hohm, Olaf; Zwiebach, Barton (Springer-Verlag, 2014-11)
    We investigate α′ corrections of bosonic strings in the framework of double field theory. The previously introduced “doubled α′-geometry” gives α′-deformed gauge transformations arising in the Green-Schwarz anomaly ...
  • Hohm, Olaf; Kwak, Seung Ki; Zwiebach, Barton (Spring Berlin/Heidelberg, 2011-09)
    We use double field theory to give a unified description of the low energy limits of type IIA and type IIB superstrings. The Ramond-Ramond potentials fit into spinor representations of the duality group O(D, D) and ...
  • Bazant, Martin Z.; Storey, Brian D.; Kornyshe, Alexei A. (American Physical Society, 2011-01)
    We develop a simple Landau-Ginzburg-type continuum theory of solvent-free ionic liquids and use it to predict the structure of the electrical double layer. The model captures overscreening from short-range correlations, ...
  • Hohm, Olaf; Zwiebach, Barton (American Physical Society, 2016-03)
    We relate the unconstrained “double metric” of the “α′-geometry” formulation of double field theory to the constrained generalized metric encoding the spacetime metric and b-field. This is achieved by integrating out ...
  • Ran, F. Ann; Hsu, Patrick D.; Lin, Chie Yu; Gootenberg, Jonathan S.; Konermann, Silvana M.; Trevino, Alexandro E.; Scott, David A.; Inoue, Azusa; Matoba, Shogo; Zhang, Yi; Zhang, Feng; Ran, F. Ann; Scott, David Arthur; Hsu, Patrick D. (Cell Press/Elsevier, 2013-09)
    Targeted genome editing technologies have enabled a broad range of research and medical applications. The Cas9 nuclease from the microbial CRISPR-Cas system is targeted to specific genomic loci by a 20 nt guide sequence, ...
