  • Strang, W. Gilbert (American Mathematical Society, 2011-04)
    A product A=F[subscript 1]...F[subscript N] of invertible block-diagonal matrices will be banded with a banded inverse. We establish this factorization with the number N controlled by the bandwidths w and not by the ...
  • Park, Jun-geun; Charrow, Ben; Curtis, Dorothy; Battat, Jonathan Alexander; Minkov, Einat; Hicks, Jamey; Teller, Seth; Ledlie, Jonathan (Association for Computing Machinery, 2010-06)
    Most current methods for 802.11-based indoor localization depend on surveys conducted by experts or skilled technicians. Some recent systems have incorporated surveying by users. Structuring localization systems "organically," ...
  • Furman, Jeffrey L. (Association for Public Policy Analysis and Management/Wiley, 2012-05)
    This paper articulates a citation-based approach to science policy evaluation and employs that approach to investigate the impact of the United States’ 2001 policy regarding the federal funding of human embryonic stem cell ...
  • Tucker, Catherine Elizabeth; Zhang, Juanjuan (Institute for Operations Research and the Management Sciences, 2010-01)
    Two-sided exchange networks (such as eBay.com) often advertise their number of users, presumably to encourage further participation. However, these networks differ markedly on how they advertise their user base. Some ...
  • Pascual-Leonea, Alvaro; Bedny, Marina; Saxe, Rebecca R. (United States National Academy of Sciences, 2009-05)
    Humans reason about the mental states of others; this capacity is called Theory of Mind (ToM). In typically developing adults, ToM is supported by a consistent group of brain regions: the bilateral temporoparietal junction ...
  • Rodrigues, Melanie; Griffith, Linda G.; Wells, Alan (Biomed Central Ltd., 2010-10)
    Multipotential stromal cells (MSCs) have been touted to provide an alternative to conservative procedures of therapy, be it heart transplants, bone reconstruction, kidney grafts, or skin, neuronal and cartilage repair. A ...
  • Youk, Hyun; van Oudenaarden, Alexander (Nature Publishing Group, 2009-12)
    An important challenge in systems biology is to quantitatively describe microbial growth using a few measurable parameters that capture the essence of this complex phenomenon. Two key events at the cell membrane—extracellular ...
  • Dutkiewicz, Stephanie; Follows, Michael J.; Kempes, Chris Poling (National Academy of Sciences, 2011-12)
    Population growth rate is a fundamental ecological and evolutionary characteristic of living organisms, but individuals must balance the metabolism devoted to biosynthesis and reproduction against the maintenance of existing ...
  • Velders, G. J. M.; Solomon, Susan; Daniel, J. S. (Copernicus GmbH on behalf of the European Geosciences Union, 2014-05)
    Chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs) are the primary cause of ozone depletion, and they also contribute to global climate change. With the global phaseout of CFCs and the coming phaseout of hydrochlorofluorocarbons (HCFCs), the ...
  • Miao, Guo-Xing; Gupta, A.; Budak, S. (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2009-07)
    Single crystalline tin oxide (SnO[subscript 2]) nanowires have been synthesized by carbothermal reduction of SnO[subscript 2] nanopowder followed by thermal evaporation of the reduced precursor and growth via the ...
  • Reina, Alfonso; Thiele, Stefan; Jia, Xiaoting; Bhaviripudi, Sreekar; Dresselhaus, Mildred; Schaefer, Juergen A.; Kong, Jing (Springer-Verlag, 2009)
    We report graphene films composed mostly of one or two layers of graphene grown by controlled carbon precipitation on the surface of polycrystalline Ni thin films during atmospheric chemical vapor deposition (CVD). Controlling ...
  • Walker, Matthew H.; Surrow, Bernd; Sakuma, Tai; Redwine, Robert P.; Milner, Richard G.; Leight, William Axel; Kocoloski, Adam Philip; Jones, Christopher LaDon; Hoffman, A. M.; Corliss, Ross Cameron; Betancourt, Michael Joseph; Balewski, Jan T. (American Physical Society, 2009-10)
    Forward-backward multiplicity correlation strengths have been measured with the STAR detector for Au+Au and p+p collisions at √sNN=200  GeV. Strong short- and long-range correlations (LRC) are seen in central Au+Au collisions. ...
  • Autor, David H.; Dorn, David (American Economic Association, 2013-08)
    We offer a unified analysis of the growth of low-skill service occupations between 1980 and 2005 and the concurrent polarization of US employment and wages. We hypothesize that polarization stems from the interaction between ...
  • Lester, Richard K.; Rosner, Robert (American Academy of Arts and Sciences, 2009-09)
    Many countries around the world are taking a fresh look at nuclear power. An important cause of what has come to be called the global nuclear renaissance is the prospect of severe disruptions to the earth’s climate ...
  • Kogan, Leonid; Papanikolaou, Dimitris (American Economic Association, 2010-05)
    We propose a theoretically motivated procedure for measuring heterogeneity in firms’ growth opportunities and document its empirical properties. The term “growth opportunities” refers to the component of a firm’s ...
  • Sabatini, David M.; Wood, Kris C. (Elsevier Inc., 2009-09)
  • Zigelbaum, Jamie; Browning, Alan; Leithinger, Daniel; Bau, Olivier; Ishii, Hiroshi (Association for Computing Machinery (ACM), 2010-01)
    In this paper we present g-stalt, a gestural interface for interacting with video. g-stalt is built upon the g-speak spatial operating environment (SOE) from Oblong Industries. The version of g-stalt presented here is ...
  • Smith, Temple F.; Hartman, Hyman (Springer (Biomed Central Ltd.), 2010-05)
    Background This paper is an attempt to trace the evolution of the ribosome through the evolution of the universal P-loop GTPases that are involved with the ribosome in translation and with the attachment of the ribosome ...
  • Recht, Benjamin; Fazel, Maryam; Parrilo, Pablo A. (Society of Industrial and Applied Mathematics (SIAM), 2010-08)
    The affine rank minimization problem consists of finding a matrix of minimum rank that satisfies a given system of linear equality constraints. Such problems have appeared in the literature of a diverse set of fields ...
  • Stojanovic, Vladimir Marko; Yang, Chih-Kong Ken; Ho, Ron (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2010-05)
    The ten papers in this special issue focus on high-performance multichip interconnections. The papers span novel transmitter and receiver equalization and data-recovery architectures, channel architecture organizations, ...
