  • Shporer, A.; Winn, Joshua Nathan; Dreizler, S.; Colon, K. D.; Wood-Vasey, W. M.; Choi, P. I.; Morley, C.; Moutou, C.; Welsh, W. F.; Pollaco, D.; Starkey, D.; Adams, E.; Barros, S. C. C.; Bouchy, F.; Cabrera-Lavers, A.; Cerutti, S.; Coban, L.; Costello, K.; Deeg, H.; Diaz, R. F.; Esquerdo, G. A.; Fernandez, J.; Fleming, S. W.; Ford, E. B.; Fulton, B. J.; Good, M.; Hebrard, G.; Holman, M. J.; Hunt, M.; Kadakia, S.; Lander, G.; Lockhart, Matthew; Mazeh, T.; Morehead, R. C.; Nelson, B. E.; Nortmann, L.; Reyes, F.; Roebuck, E.; Rudy, A. R.; Ruth, R.; Simpson, E.; Vincent, C.; Weaver, G.; Xie, J. W. (IOP Publishing, 2010-09)
    We present ground-based optical observations of the 2009 September and 2010 January transits of HD 80606b. Based on three partial light curves of the 2009 September event, we derive a midtransit time of Tc [HJD] = 2455099.196 ...
  • Tellex, Stefanie A.; Roy, Deb K. (Association for Computing Machinery, 2009-11)
    Spatial language video retrieval is an important real-world problem that forms a test bed for evaluating semantic structures for natural language descriptions of motion on naturalistic data. Video search by natural language ...
  • Pinto, Federico; Whittle, Andrew (American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE), 2014-04)
    This paper presents simplified closed-form analytical solutions that can be used to interpret and predict ground movements caused by shallow tunneling in soft ground conditions. These solutions offer a more comprehensive ...
  • McDaniel, Matt W.; Nishihata, Takayuki; Brooks, Christopher A.; Iagnemma, Karl (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2010-05)
    To operate autonomously in forested environments, unmanned ground vehicles (UGVs) must be able to identify the load-bearing surface of the terrain (i.e. the ground). This paper presents a novel two-stage approach for ...
  • Teller, Seth; Huang, Albert S.; Koch, Olivier A.; Walter, Matthew R. (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2010-07)
    Precise calibration of camera intrinsic and extrinsic parameters, while often useful, is difficult to obtain during field operation and presents scaling issues for multi-robot systems. We demonstrate a vision-based approach ...
  • Cohn, Henry; Kumar, Abhinav; Schurmann, Achill (American Physical Society, 2009-12)
    We study dimensional trends in ground states for soft-matter systems. Specifically, using a high-dimensional version of Parrinello-Rahman dynamics, we investigate the behavior of the Gaussian core model in up to eight ...
  • Hu, Qing; Reno, John L.; Chan, Chun Wang Ivan (American Institute of Physics (AIP), 2012-10)
    A terahertz quantum cascade laser (THz QCL) architecture is presented in which only the ground state subbands of each quantum well are involved in the transport and lasing transition. Compared to state-of-the art THz QCLs ...
  • Grosse, Roger Baker; Johnson, Micah K.; Adelson, Edward H.; Freeman, William T. (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2010-05)
    The intrinsic image decomposition aims to retrieve “intrinsic” properties of an image, such as shading and reflectance. To make it possible to quantitatively compare different approaches to this problem in realistic settings, ...
  • Como, Giacomo (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2010-08)
    Typical minimum distances and error exponents are analyzed on the 8-PSK Gaussian channel for two capacity-achieving code ensembles with different algebraic structure. It is proved that the typical group code over the cyclic ...
  • 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 ...
