  • Eddy, Matthew T.; Ruben, David; Herzfeld, Judith; Griffin, Robert Guy (Elsevier, 2011-12)
    We show that a simple, general, and easily reproducible method for generating non-uniform sampling (NUS) schedules preserves the benefits of random sampling, including inherently reduced sampling artifacts, while removing ...
  • Deif, A.; El-Hussain, I.; Al-Jabri, K.; El-Hady, S.; Al-Hashmi, S.; Al-Toubi, K.; Al-Shijbi, Y.; Al-Saifi, M.; Toksoz, M. Nafi (Springer Berlin Heidelberg, 2012-12)
    The Sultanate of Oman forms the southeastern part of the Arabian plate, which is surrounded by relatively high active tectonic zones. Studies of seismic risk assessment in Oman have been an important on-going socioeconomic ...
  • Saha, Sourabh Kumar; Culpepper, Martin (Wiley Blackwell, 2016-04)
    Emergence of hierarchy during compression of quasi-planar bilayers is preceded by a mode-locked state during which the quasi-planar form persists. Transition to hierarchy is determined entirely by geometrically observable ...
  • Barry, Jennifer; Kaelbling, Leslie P.; Lozano-Perez, Tomas (AAAI Press/International Joint Conferences on Artificial Intelligence, 2011-07)
    This paper presents an algorithm for finding approximately optimal policies in very large Markov decision processes by constructing a hierarchical model and then solving it approximately. It exploits factored representations ...
  • Fu, Roger Rennan; Weiss, Benjamin P. (American Geophysical Union (AGU), 2012-02)
    We introduce the theoretical basis of a new form of remanent magnetization that likely formed on primitive bodies in the solar system. Accretional detrital remanent magnetization (ADRM) operates via “compass needle”-type ...
  • Zhang, Le; Jiang, Beini; Wu, Yukun; Strouthos, Costas; Su, Jing; Zhou, Xiaobo; Sun, Phillip Zhe (BioMed Central Ltd, 2011-12)
    Abstract Multiscale agent-based modeling (MABM) has been widely used to simulate Glioblastoma Multiforme (GBM) and its progression. At the intracellular level, the MABM approach employs a system of ordinary differential ...
  • Zhang, Fengge; Zhu, Liancheng; Jin, Shi; Wang, Dairui; Cao, Wenping; Kirtley Jr, James L (2015-07)
    In this paper, a new open-winding control strategy is proposed for a brushless doubly fed reluctance generator (BDFRG) used for stand-alone wind turbine or ship generators. The BDFRG is characterized with two windings on ...
  • Grubb, Michael D. (John Wiley & Sons, Inc., 2011-04)
    A sender who has disclosable information with probability less than one may partially conceal bad news by choosing to withhold information and pooling with uninformed types. The success of this strategy depends on receivers' ...
  • Greenstone, Michael; Kopits, Elizabeth; Wolverton, Ann (Oxford University Press, 2013-01)
    The US government recently developed a range of values representing the monetized global damages associated with an incremental increase in carbon dioxide (CO[subscript 2]) emissions, commonly referred to as the social ...
  • Henry, Shawn Lawton (Springer-Verlag, 2012-07)
    This paper addresses the text customisation needs of people with low vision, dyslexia, and related conditions that impact reading, including people with declining eyesight due to ageing. It reports on a literature review ...
  • Judge, Benjamin M; Holtta-Otto, Katja Mia Marjaana; Winter, Amos G. (ASME International, 2015-05)
    This paper examines the “reverse innovation” of the leveraged freedom chair (LFC), a high-performance, low-cost, off-road wheelchair originally designed for developing countries. A needs study of 71 developed world wheelchair ...
  • Hamlin, Kiley; Wynn, Karen; Bloom, Paul; Lucas, Chris G.; Griffiths, Thomas L.; Xu, Fei; Fawcett, Christine; Tamar, Kushnir; Wellman, Henry; Gelman, Susan; Goodman, Noah Daniel; Baker, Christopher Lawrence; Ullman, Tomer David; Tenenbaum, Joshua B (Cognitive Science Society, 2010)
    Adults effortlessly and automatically infer complex pat- terns of goals, beliefs, and other mental states as the causes of others’ actions. Yet before the last decade little was known about the developmental ...
  • Stadanlick, Jason E.; Zhang, Zhiqiang; Lee, Sang-Yun; Hemann, Michael; Biery, Matthew; Carleton, Michael O.; Zambetti, Gerard P.; Anderson, Stephen J.; Oravecz, Tamas; Wiest, David L. (American Association of Immunologists, 2011-06)
    alpha beta and gamma delta lineage T cells are thought to arise from a common CD4–CD8– progenitor in the thymus. However, the molecular pathways controlling fate selection and maturation of these two lineages remain poorly ...
  • Sher, Noa; Bell, George W.; Li, Sharon; Nordman, Jared T.; Eng, Thomas; Eaton, Matthew Lucas; MacAlpine, David M.; Orr-Weaver, Terry L. (Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory Press, 2011-11)
    Precise DNA replication is crucial for genome maintenance, yet this process has been inherently difficult to study on a genome-wide level in untransformed differentiated metazoan cells. To determine how metazoan DNA ...
  • Nordman, Jared T.; Li, Sharon; Eng, Thomas; MacAlpine, David M. (Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory Press, 2010-12)
    Polyploid or polytene cells, which have more than 2C DNA content, are widespread throughout nature and present in most differentiated Drosophila tissues. These cells also can display differential replication, that is, ...
  • Banerjee, Abhishek; Sur, Mriganka; Feldman, Danielle Angela (Hindawi Publishing Corporation, 2016)
    Rett Syndrome was long considered to be simply a disorder of postnatal development, with phenotypes that manifest only late in development and into adulthood. A variety of recent evidence demonstrates that the phenotypes ...
  • Berchowitz, Luke Edwin; Gajadhar, Aaron; van Werven, Folkert J.; De Rosa, Alexandra A.; Samoylova, Mariya L.; Brar, Gloria A.; Xu, Yifeng; Xiao, Che; Futcher, Bruce; Weissman, Jonathan S.; White, Forest M.; Amon, Angelika B. (Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory Press, 2013-10)
    Production of haploid gametes from diploid progenitor cells is mediated by a specialized cell division, meiosis, where two divisions, meiosis I and II, follow a single S phase. Errors in progression from meiosis I to meiosis ...
  • Buganim, Yosef; Markoulaki, Styliani; van Wietmarschen, Niek; Wu, Tao; Ganz, Kibibi; Akhtar-Zaidi, Batool; He, Yupeng; Abraham, Brian J.; Porubsky, David; Kulenkampff, Elisabeth; Shi, Linyu; Gao, Qing; Sarkar, Sovan; Cohen, Malkiel; Goldmann, Johanna; Nery, Joseph R.; Schultz, Matthew D.; Ecker, Joseph R.; Xiao, Andrew; Lansdorp, Peter M.; Hoke, Heather Ashley; Faddah, Dina Adel; Young, Richard A; Jaenisch, Rudolf (Elsevier, 2014-09)
    Induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs) are commonly generated by transduction of Oct4, Sox2, Klf4, and Myc (OSKM) into cells. Although iPSCs are pluripotent, they frequently exhibit high variation in terms of quality, as ...
  • Schneider, Ben Ross (SciELO, 2015-03)
    The record of successful developmental states in East Asia and the partial successes of developmental states in Latin America suggest several common preconditions for effective state intervention including a Weberian ...
  • Prinn, Ronald G. (National Academy of Sciences (U.S.), 2012-06)
    The global environment is a complex and dynamic system. Earth system modeling is needed to help understand changes in interacting subsystems, elucidate the influence of human activities, and explore possible future changes. ...
