  • Patacchini, Leonardo; Hutchinson, Ian H. (IOP Publishing, 2011-05)
    The forces acting on a spherical conducting particle in a transversely flowing magnetized plasma are calculated in the entire range of magnetization and Debye length, using the particle code SCEPTIC3D (Patacchini and ...
  • Yuen, Shelten G.; Perrin, Douglas P.; Vasilyev, Nikolay V.; del Nido, Pedro J.; Howe, Robert D. (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2010-09)
    The manipulation of fast-moving, delicate tissues in beating heart procedures presents a considerable challenge to the surgeon. A robotic force tracking system can assist the surgeon by applying precise contact forces to ...
  • Reynolds, David W.; Clark, David A.; Wilson, Charles F.; Cook, Lara (American Meteorological Society, 2012-10)
    During summer, marine stratus encroaches into the approach to San Francisco International Airport (SFO) bringing low ceilings. Low ceilings restrict landings and result in a high number of arrival delays, thus impacting ...
  • Chhaochhria, Pallav; Graves, Stephen C. (Taylor & Francis, 2013-11)
    We examine tactical planning for a serial manufacturing system that produces a product family with many process steps and low volumes. The system is subject to uncertainty in demand, in the supply of raw materials, and in ...
  • Cueto-Felgueroso, Luis; Juanes, Ruben (National Academy of Sciences (U.S.), 2013-12)
    Oil and natural gas from deep shale formations are transforming the United States economy and its energy outlook. Back in 2005, the US Energy Information Administration published projections of United States natural gas ...
  • Kovacs, Geza; Miller, Robert C. (Association for Computing Machinery (ACM), 2013-10)
    Foreign-language comics are potentially an enjoyable way to learn foreign languages. However, the difficulty of reading authentic material makes them inaccessible to novice learners. We present the Foreign Manga Reader, a ...
  • Bonstre, Jean-Francois; Campbell, Joseph P., Jr.; Shen, Wade; Campbell, William M.; Schwartz, Reva; Matrouf, Driss (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2009-03)
    Looking at the different points highlighted in this article, we affirm that forensic applications of speaker recognition should still be taken under a necessary need for caution. Disseminating this message remains one of ...
  • Levihn, Martin; Stilman, Mike; Kaelbling, Leslie P.; Lozano-Perez, Tomas (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2013-11)
    We present a hierarchical planning and execution architecture that maintains the computational efficiency of hierarchical decomposition while improving optimality. It provides mechanisms for monitoring the belief state ...
  • Guarente, Leonard Pershing (Elsevier, 2010-01)
    Propagation of a species requires periodic cell renewal to avoid clonal senescence. Liu et al. (2010) now describe a new mechanism of cell renewal in budding yeast, in which damaged protein aggregates are transported out ...
  • Reising, S. C.; Miller, E. L.; Kerekes, J. P.; Entekhabi, Dara (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2009-10)
    The 29 papers in this special issue were originally presented at the 2008 International Geoscience and Remote Sensing Symposium (IGARSS'08), held from July 6 to 11 in Boston, MA.
  • Scimone, M. Lucila; Lapan, Sylvain W.; Reddien, Peter (Public Library of Science, 2014-01)
    Planarian regeneration requires positional information to specify the identity of tissues to be replaced as well as pluripotent neoblasts capable of differentiating into new cell types. We found that wounding elicits rapid ...
  • Heim, Irene R. (Dept. of Linguistics, South College, University of Massachusetts, 2007-10)
    Introduction: Tanya Reinhart pioneered and developed a new and very influential approach to the syntax and semantics of anaphora. It originated in Reinhart (1983a, b) and underwent various later modifications, e.g., ...
  • Robinson, Julia M.; Sakai, Takeo; Okano, Katsuhiko; Kitawaki, Takafumi; Danheiser, Rick Lane (American Chemical Society, 2010-07)
    A formal, metal-free, [2 + 2 + 2] cycloaddition strategy is described based on a cascade of two pericyclic processes. The first step involves an intramolecular propargylic ene reaction of a 1,6-diyne to generate a vinylallene, ...
  • Duperret, Jeffrey M.; Hafner, Michael R.; Del Vecchio, Domitilla (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2010-10)
    In this paper, we show how to design a provably safe robotic roundabout system comprised of three vehicles. This is accomplished by combining two-vehicle collision avoidance primitives, which are each computationally light ...
  • Liang, Li; Stubbe, JoAnne; Tommos, Cecilia; Ravichandran, Kanchana (American Chemical Society (ACS), 2013-11)
    The reversible Y–O•/Y–OH redox properties of the α[subscript 3]Y model protein allow access to the electrochemical and thermodynamic properties of 3,5-difluorotyrosine. The unnatural amino acid has been incorporated at ...
  • Braibant, Thomas; Chlipala, Adam (Springer-Verlag, 2013-07)
    We report on the implementation of a certified compiler for a high-level hardware description language (HDL) called Fe-Si (FEatherweight SynthesIs). Fe-Si is a simplified version of Bluespec, an HDL based on a notion of ...
  • Sakar, Mahmut Selman; Neal, Devin Michael; Boudou, Thomas; Borochin, Michael A.; Li, Yinqing; Weiss, Ron; Kamm, Roger Dale; Chen, Christopher S.; Asada, Harry (Royal Society of Chemistry, 2012-12)
    Densely arrayed skeletal myotubes are activated individually and as a group using precise optical stimulation with high spatiotemporal resolution. Skeletal muscle myoblasts are genetically encoded to express a light-activated ...
  • Delgado- Aparicio L., Alvaro; Sugiyama, Linda E.; Granetz, Robert S.; Gates, D. A.; Rice, John E.; Reinke, Matthew Logan; Bitter, M.; Fredrickson, E.; Gao, C.; Greenwald, Martin J.; Hill, K.; Hubbard, Amanda E.; Hughes, Jerry W.; Pablant, N.; Scott, S.; Wilson, R.; Marmar, Earl S.; Podpaly, Y.; Wolfe, S.; Wukitch, Stephen James (American Physical Society, 2013-02)
    New observations of the formation and dynamics of long-lived impurity-induced helical “snake” modes in tokamak plasmas have recently been carried out on Alcator C-Mod. The snakes form as an asymmetry in the impurity ion ...
  • Haselwandter, Christoph A.; Calamai, Martino; Kardar, Mehran; Triller, Antoine; Azeredo da Silveira, Rava (American Physical Society, 2011-06)
    Neurotransmitter receptor molecules, concentrated in postsynaptic domains along with scaffold and a number of other molecules, are key regulators of signal transmission across synapses. Combining experiment and theory, we ...
  • Bodenheimer, Peter; Lissauer, Jack J.; Seager, Sara; Rogers, Leslie Anne (IOP Publishing, 2011-08)
    Kepler has found hundreds of Neptune-size (2-6 R [subscript ⊕]) planet candidates within 0.5 AU of their stars. The nature of the vast majority of these planets is not known because their masses have not been measured. ...
