  • Buonassisi, Tonio; Bertoni, Mariana I.; Chan, Maria K.; Ceder, Gerbrand; Lee, Yun Seog (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2009-06)
    We investigate earth abundant materials for thin-film solar cells that can meet tens of terawatts level deployment potential. Candidate materials are identified by combinatorial search, large-scale electronic structure ...
  • Seager, Sara; Robinson, Tyler D.; Meadows, Victoria S.; Crisp, David; Deming, Drake; A'Hearn, Michael F.; Charbonneau, David; Livengood, Timothy A.; Barry, Richard K.; Hearty, Thomas; Hewagama, Tilak; Lisse, Carey M.; McFadden, Lucy A.; Wellnitz, Dennis D. (Mary Ann Liebert, Inc., 2011-01)
    The EPOXI Discovery Mission of Opportunity reused the Deep Impact flyby spacecraft to obtain spatially and temporally resolved visible photometric and moderate resolution near-infrared (NIR) spectroscopic observations of ...
  • Rothman, Daniel H. (American Mathematical Society (AMS), 2014-09)
    The carbon cycle represents metabolism at a global scale. When viewed through a mathematical lens, observational data suggest that the cycle exhibits an underlying mathematical structure. This review focuses on two types ...
  • He, David Da; Winokur, Eric S.; Sodini, Charles G. (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2015-10)
    This paper presents a wearable vital signs monitor at the ear. The monitor measures the electrocardiogram (ECG), ballistocardiogram (BCG), and photoplethysmogram (PPG) to obtain pre-ejection period (PEP), stroke volume ...
  • Juul, Jesper; Norton, Marleigh (Association for Computing Machinery (ACM), 2009-04)
    In video game literature and video game reviews, video games are often divided into two distinct parts: interface and gameplay. Good video games, it is assumed, have easy to use interfaces, but they also provide difficult ...
  • Pirandola, Stefano; Lloyd, Seth; Mancini, Stefano; Braunstein, Samuel L. (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2009-02)
    We consider one of the quantum key distribution protocols recently introduced in Ref. [Pirandola et al., Nature Phys. 4, 726 (2008)]. This protocol consists of a two-way quantum communication between Alice and Bob, where ...
  • Hainmueller, Jens; Su, Yiqing; Xu, Yiqing (UCLA Statistics/American Statistical Association, 2012-08)
    The Stata package ebalance implements entropy balancing, a multivariate reweighting method described in Hainmueller (2012 ) that allows users to reweight a dataset such that the covariate distributions in the reweighted ...
  • Van Eylen, Vincent; Albrecht, Simon (IOP Publishing, 2015-07)
    Solar system planets move on almost circular orbits. In strong contrast, many massive gas giant exoplanets travel on highly elliptical orbits, whereas the shape of the orbits of smaller, more terrestrial, exoplanets remained ...
  • Ponte, R. M.; Wunsch, Carl; Forget, Gael; Campin, Jean-Michel; Heimbach, Patrick; Hill, Christopher N. (Copernicus GmbH, 2015-10)
    This paper presents the ECCO v4 non-linear inverse modeling framework and its baseline solution for the evolving ocean state over the period 1992–2011. Both components are publicly available and subjected to regular, ...
  • Hoge, Richard D.; Triantafyllou, Christina; Wald, Lawrence (Public Library of Science, 2011-09)
    While the BOLD (Blood Oxygenation Level Dependent) contrast mechanism has demonstrated excellent sensitivity to neuronal activation, its specificity with regards to differentiating vascular and parenchymal responses has ...
  • Xue, Hong; Cordero Sanchez, Otto Xavier; Camas, Francisco M.; Trimble, William; Meyer, Folker; Guglielmini, Julien; Rocha, Eduardo P. C.; Polz, Martin F. (American Society for Microbiology, 2015-05)
    Although plasmids and other episomes are recognized as key players in horizontal gene transfer among microbes, their diversity and dynamics among ecologically structured host populations in the wild remain poorly understood. ...
  • Hausman, Jerry A.; Ros, Agustin J. (Springer Science+Business Media, 2013-02)
    We analyze telecommunications prices in Mexico by using a panel data of countries similar to Mexico to estimate demand models for mobile and fixed-line telecommunications. We find that Mexico’s actual mobile and fixed-line ...
  • BALL, RAY; KOTHARI, S. P.; NIKOLAEV, VALERI V.; Kothari, S. P. (Wiley Blackwell, 2013-12)
    A substantial literature investigates conditional conservatism, defined as asymmetric accounting recognition of economic shocks (“news”), and how it depends on various market, political, and institutional variables. Studies ...
  • Kogan, Leonid; Papanikolaou, Dimitris (Annual Reviews, 2012-07)
    In this review we survey the recent research on the fundamental determinants of stock returns. These studies explore how firms' systematic risk and their investment and production decisions are jointly determined in ...
  • Taylor, Joshua Adam; Hover, Franz S. (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2009-08)
    Sampling from the importance density is often a costly aspect of particle filters. We present a method by which to replace the most computationally expensive component of the importance density with an efficient approximation, ...
  • McConnachie, Dominic; Wollersheim, Christoph; Waitz, Ian A.; Winchester, Niven Stewart (Elsevier, 2013-12)
    The US Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has a goal that one billion gallons of renewable jet fuel is consumed by the US aviation industry each year from 2018. We examine the economic and emissions impacts of this goal ...
  • House, Kurt Zenz; Baclig, Antonio C.; Ranjan, Manya; van Nierop, Ernst A.; Wilcox, Jennifer; Herzog, Howard J. (National Academy of Sciences of the United States of America, 2011-12)
    Capturing carbon dioxide from the atmosphere (“air capture”) in an industrial process has been proposed as an option for stabilizing global CO[subscript 2] concentrations. Published analyses suggest these air capture systems ...
  • Pindyck, Robert S.; Wang, Neng (American Economic Association, 2013-11)
    How likely is a catastrophic event that would substantially reduce the capital stock, GDP, and wealth? How much should society be willing to pay to reduce the probability or impact of a catastrophe? We answer these questions ...
  • Joskow, Paul L.; Parsons, John E. (American Academy of Arts and Sciences, 2009-09)
    In the last several years we have seen what appears to be revived global interest in continuing operation of existing nuclear power plants and constructing a new generation of plants.1 A recent International Atomic Energy ...
  • Deschenes, Oliver; Greenstone, Michael (American Economic Association, 2012-12)
    Fisher et al. (2012) (hearafter, FHRS) have uncovered coding and data errors in our paper, Deschênes and Greenstone (2007), henceforth, DG. We acknowledge and are embarrassed by these mistakes. We are grateful to FHRS for ...
