  • Ritvo, Harriet (Dumbarton Oaks Research Library and Collection, 2013)
    In The Variation of Animals and Plants under Domestication, which appeared first in 1868 and in a revised edition in 1875, Charles Darwin developed a theme to which he had accorded great rhetorical and evidentiary significance. ...
  • Editorial 
    Magnenat Thalmann, Nadia; Peng, Qunsheng; Wolter, Franz Erich; Patrikalakis, Nicholas M. (Springer-Verlag, 2013-05)
    Computer Graphics International (CGI) is one of the most prestigious conferences in the world where researchers and professional practitioners are gathered annually to celebrate and share their novel achievements in computer ...
  • Yoshii, Akira; Constantine-Paton, Martha; Ip, Nancy Y. (Frontiers Research Foundation, 2015-06)
    Since the discovery of nerve growth factor (NGF) more than a half century ago (Levi-Montalcini and Cohen, 1960), the prototypic neurotrophin family has included brain derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF), neurotrophin-3 ...
  • Noy, Y. Ian; Hettinger, Lawrence J.; Dainoff, Marvin J.; Carayon, Pascale; Robertson, Michelle M.; Courtney, Theodore K.; Leveson, Nancy G (Taylor & Francis, 2015-03)
    The burden of on-the-job accidents and fatalities and the harm of associated human suffering continue to present an important challenge for safety researchers and practitioners. While significant improvements have been ...
  • Chen, Zhe; Barbieri, Riccardo (Frontiers Research Foundation, 2012-11)
    With cardiovascular diseases being among the main causes of death in the world, quantitative modeling, assessment and monitoring of cardiovascular dynamics, and functioning play a critical role in bringing important ...
  • Jain, Himanshu; Tuller, Harry L. (Springer US, 2015-02)
    Key physical and chemical properties of functional materials depend largely on the existence of structural and electronic defects within their crystalline lattices or amorphous structure. This special issue on Defects & ...
  • Marrocchelli, Dario; Amezawa, Koji; Bishop, Sean R.; Sheldon, Brian W. (Springer US, 2014-02)
    Electro-chemo-mechanics is the relationship between electrical, chemical and mechanical properties and the study of adjusting one property through the control of another. This relationship can result in beneficial properties, ...
  • Subramanian, Jaichandar; Dickman, Dion (Frontiers Research Foundation, 2015-09)
    Dynamic reorganization of neural circuits can occur through the selective strengthening of synapses between neurons that are coactive in response to the encoded information (Shatz, 1990). However, the positive feedback ...
  • Borst, Sem; Proutiere, Alexandre; Shah, Devavrat (Springer US, 2012-09)
    This is the second volume of the special issue “Recent Trends in the Mathematics of Wireless Communication Networks: Algorithms, Models, and Methods,” bringing together a collection of papers describing various recent ...
  • Seager, Sara; Demory, Brice-Olivier; Bonfils, Xavier; Deming, Drake; Triaud, Amaury H.M.J.; Gillon, M. (EDP Sciences, 2010-11)
    Because the planets of a system form in a flattened disk, they are expected to share similar orbital inclinations at the end of their formation. The high-precision photometric monitoring of stars known to host a transiting ...
  • Leiserson, Charles E.; McVinney, Chuck (Nature Publishing Group, 2015-07)
    Education does not stop. Professors must update and develop their technical skills throughout their careers. But as they progress, few take the time — or are offered the opportunity — to become educated in how to be an ...
  • Steinfeld, Jeffrey I.; Mino, Takashi (Springer Japan, 2009-03)
  • Duflo, Esther; Dupas, Pascaline; Kremer, Michael (American Economic Association (AEA), 2015-09)
    A seven-year randomized evaluation suggests education subsidies reduce adolescent girls' dropout, pregnancy, and marriage but not sexually transmitted infection (STI). The government's HIV curriculum, which stresses ...
  • Moulson, Margaret C.; Balas, Benjamin; Nelson III, Charles A.; Sinha, Pawan (Elsevier, 2011-10)
    Face perception is a critical social ability and identifying its neural correlates is important from both basic and applied perspectives. In EEG recordings, faces elicit a distinct electrophysiological signature, the N170, ...
  • Dauwels, Justin H. G.; Vialatte, Francois; Latchoumane, Charles; Jeong, Jaeseung; Cichocki, Andrzej (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2009-11)
    It has frequently been reported in the medical literature that the EEG of Alzheimer disease (AD) patients is less synchronous than in healthy subjects. In this paper, it is explored whether loss in EEG synchrony can be ...
  • He, Ruijie; Bachrach, Abraham Galton; Roy, Nicholas (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2010-07)
    A helicopter agent has to plan trajectories to track multiple ground targets from the air. The agent has partial information of each target's pose, and must reason about its uncertainty of the targets' poses when planning ...
  • Arnold, Douglas N.; David, Guy; Jerison, David; Mayboroda, Svitlana; Filoche, Marcel (American Physical Society, 2016-02)
    The amplitude of localized quantum states in random or disordered media may exhibit long-range exponential decay. We present here a theory that unveils the existence of an effective potential which finely governs the ...
  • Feldman, Dan; Sugaya, Andrew; Rus, Daniela L. (Association for Computing Machinery (ACM), 2012-04)
    The wide availability of networked sensors such as GPS and cameras is enabling the creation of sensor networks that generate huge amounts of data. For example, vehicular sensor networks where in-car GPS sensor probes are ...
  • Leibensperger, Eric M.; Plumb, R. Alan (American Meteorological Society, 2014-03)
    Large-scale chaotic stirring stretches tracer contours into filaments containing fine spatial scales until small-scale diffusive processes dissipate tracer variance. Quantification of tracer transport in such circumstances ...
  • Wen, Xiao-Gang; Barkeshli, Maissam (American Physical Society, 2010-04)
    The projective construction is a powerful approach to deriving the bulk and edge field theories of non-Abelian fractional quantum Hall (FQH) states and yields an understanding of non-Abelian FQH states in terms of the ...
