  • Isik, Leyla; Meyers, Ethan M.; Leibo, Joel Z.; Poggio, Tomaso A. (American Physiological Society, 2013-10)
    The human visual system can rapidly recognize objects despite transformations that alter their appearance. The precise timing of when the brain computes neural representations that are invariant to particular transformations, ...
  • Bustos, Sebastian; Gomez, Charles; Hausmann, Ricardo; Hidalgo, Cesar A. (Public Library of Science, 2012-11)
    In economic systems, the mix of products that countries make or export has been shown to be a strong leading indicator of economic growth. Hence, methods to characterize and predict the structure of the network connecting ...
  • Skow, Bradford (Scholarly Publishing Office, University of Michigan Library, 2010-01)
    Maybe there is something rather than nothing because the nothingness force acted on itself, and when the nothing nothings itself it produces something. Robert Nozick suggested this as a candidate explanation of the fact ...
  • Athey, Susan; Ellison, Glenn (Wiley Blackwell, 2014-04)
    This paper considers a dynamic model of the evolution of open-source software projects, focusing on the evolution of quality, contributing programmers, and users who contribute customer support to other users. Programmers ...
  • Chen, Hsieh; Alexander-Katz, Alfredo (American Physical Society (APS), 2011-09)
    Using hydrodynamic simulations we examine the behavior of single polymers in a confined colloidal suspension under flow. We study the conformations of both, collapsed and noncollapsed polymers. Our results show that the ...
  • Ghoshal, Gourab; Blumm, Nicholas; Forro, Zalan; Schich, Maximilian; Bianconi, Ginestra; Bouchaud, Jean-Philippe; Barabasi, Albert-Laszlo (American Physical Society, 2012-09)
    The world is addicted to ranking: everything, from the reputation of scientists, journals, and universities to purchasing decisions is driven by measured or perceived differences between them. Here, we analyze empirical ...
  • Caughey, Devin; Warshaw, Christopher S (Wiley Blackwell, 2016-10)
    Applying a dynamic latent-variable model to data on 148 policies collected over eight decades (1936–2014), we produce the first yearly measure of the policy liberalism of U.S. states. Our dynamic measure of state policy ...
  • Rapoport, Elizabeth Ashera; Beach, Geoffrey Stephen (American Institute of Physics (AIP), 2012-02)
    The dynamics of fluid-borne superparamagnetic bead transport by field-driven domain walls in submicrometer ferromagnetic tracks is studied experimentally together with numerical and analytical modeling. Experiments show ...
  • Veysset, David Georges; Hsieh, Alex J.; Kooi, Steven E.; Maznev, Alexei; Masser, Kevin A.; Nelson, Keith Adam (Springer Nature, 2016-05)
    Understanding high–velocity microparticle impact is essential for many fields, from space exploration to medicine and biology. Investigations of microscale impact have hitherto been limited to post–mortem analysis of ...
  • Wu, Weisheng; Cheng, Yong; Keller, Cheryl A.; Ernst, Jason; Kumar, Swathi Ashok; Mishra, Tejaswini; Morrissey, Christapher; Dorman, Christine M.; Chen, Kuan-Bei; Drautz, Daniela; Giardine, Belinda; Shibata, Yoichiro; Song, Lingyun; Pimkin, Max; Crawford, Gregory E.; Furey, Terrence S.; Kellis, Manolis; Miller, Webb; Taylor, James; Schuster, Stephan C.; Zhang, Yu; Chiaromonte, Francesca; Blobel, Gerd A.; Weiss, Mitchell J.; Hardison, Ross C. (Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory Press, 2011-07)
    Interplays among lineage-specific nuclear proteins, chromatin modifying enzymes, and the basal transcription machinery govern cellular differentiation, but their dynamics of action and coordination with transcriptional ...
  • Kingsbery, James; Levin, Alexander; Preygel, Anatoly; Silva, Cesar E. (American Institute of Mathematical Sciences, 2011-02)
    There is a natural continuous realization of the one-sided Bernoulli shift on the [p] -adic integers as the map that shifts the coefficients of the [p] -adic expansion to the left. We study this map's Mahler power series ...
  • Laub, Michael T.; Chen, Y. Erin; Tsokos, Christos G.; Biondi, Emanuele G.; Perchuk, Barrett (American Society for Microbiology, 2009-09)
    In Caulobacter crescentus, progression through the cell cycle is governed by the periodic activation and inactivation of the master regulator CtrA. Two phosphorelays, each initiating with the histidine kinase CckA, ...
  • Graham, Michael D.; Xi, Li (American Physical Society, 2012-01)
    Dynamical trajectories on the boundary in state space between laminar and turbulent plane channel flow—edge states—are computed for Newtonian and viscoelastic fluids. Viscoelasticity has a negligible effect on the properties ...
  • Schepers, Winfried; Savidis, Stavros; Kausel, Eduardo A. (Elsevier, 2010-01)
    This paper deals with the problem of time-varying point loads applied onto the surface of an elastic half-space and the stresses that such loads elicit within that medium. The emphasis is on the evaluation of the isobaric ...
  • Zhang, Yang; Lagi, Marco; Fratini, Emiliano; Baglioni, Piero; Mamontov, Eugene; Chen, Sow-Hsin (American Physical Society, 2009-04)
    We study the dynamic susceptibility χT(Q,t) of deeply supercooled water by means of quasielastic neutron scattering and molecular dynamics simulations. Both techniques show an increase in the peak height of χT(Q,t) as the ...
  • Whitney, Daniel E. (American Physical Society, 2010-12)
    Cascade dynamics on networks are usually analyzed statically to determine existence criteria for cascades. Here, the Watts model of threshold dynamics on random Erdős-Rényi networks is analyzed to determine the dynamic ...
  • Acemoglu, Daron; Golosov, Mikhail; Tsyvinski, Aleh; Yared, Pierre (Oxford University Press (OUP), 2012-01)
    We develop a dynamic theory of resource wars and study the conditions under which such wars can be prevented. Our focus is on the interaction between the scarcity of resources and the incentives for war in the presence of ...
  • Ben-Akiva, Moshe E.; Gao, Song; Wei, Zheng; Wen, Yang (Elsevier, 2012-03)
    The management of severe congestion in complex urban networks calls for dynamic traffic assignment (DTA) models that can replicate real traffic situations with long queues and spillbacks. DynaMIT-P, a mesoscopic traffic ...
  • Celik, Guner Dincer; Modiano, Eytan H. (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2010-12)
    We consider a dynamic vehicle routing problem in wireless networks where messages arriving randomly in time and space are collected by a mobile receiver (vehicle or a collector). The collector is responsible for receiving ...
  • Bullo, Francesco; Pavone, M.; Smith, S. L.; Frazzoli, Emilio; Savla, Ketan D. (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2011-09)
    Recent years have witnessed great advancements in the science and technology of autonomy, robotics, and networking. This paper surveys recent concepts and algorithms for dynamic vehicle routing (DVR), that is, for the ...
