  • Glatt, Vaida; Miller, Micah; Ivkovic, Alan; Liu, Fangjun; Parry, Nicola; Griffin, Damian; Vrahas, Mark; Evans, Christopher (Journal of Bone and Joint Surgery, Inc., 2012-11)
    Background: Large segmental defects in bone do not heal well and present clinical challenges. This study investigated modulation of the mechanical environment as a means of improving bone healing in the presence of bone ...
  • Cowan, Ray Franklin; Dujmic, Denis; Sciolla, Gabriella (American Physical Society, 2012-09)
    We establish improved upper limits on branching fractions for B[superscript 0] decays to final states where the decay products are purely invisible (i.e., no observable final state particles) and for final states where the ...
  • Fisher, Peter H.; Zhao, M.; Yamamoto, R. K.; Spitznagel, M.; Sciolla, Gabriella; Henderson, Shawn Wesley; Dujmic, Denis; Cowan, Ray Franklin (American Physical Society, 2009-07)
    We search for the neutrinoless, lepton-flavor-violating tau decays τ[over-bar]→ℓ[over-bar]V[superscript 0], where ℓ is an electron or muon and V[superscript 0] is a vector meson reconstructed as ϕ→K[superscript +]K[superscript ...
  • Zhang, Ting; Luo, Haifeng; Cai, Yang (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2009-09)
    Automata on infinite words (omega-automata) have wide applications in formal language theory as well as in modeling and verifying reactive systems. Complementation of omega-automata is a crucial instrument in many these ...
  • Wang, Ting; Gifford, David K.; Stormo, Gary D.; Fraenkel, Ernest; MacIsaac, Kenzie Daniel; Gordon, D. Benjamin (BioMed Central Ltd, 2006-03)
    Background: The regulatory map of a genome consists of the binding sites for proteins that determine the transcription of nearby genes. An initial regulatory map for S. cerevisiae was recently published using six motif ...
  • Cowan, Ray Franklin; Dujmic, Denis; Henderson, Shawn Wesley; Sciolla, Gabriella; Spitznagel, M.; Yamamoto, R. K.; Zhao, M.; Fisher, Peter H. (American Physical Society, 2009-04)
    We present improved measurements of the branching fraction B, the longitudinal polarization fraction fL, and the direct CP asymmetry ACP in the B meson decay channel B+-->ρ+ρ0. The data sample was collected with the BABAR ...
  • Winn, Joshua Nathan; Narita, Norio; Hirano, Teruyuki; Sato, Bunei; Suto, Yasushi; Turner, Edwin L.; Aoki, Wako; Tamura, Motohide; Yamada, Toru (Astronomical Society of Japan, 2009-10)
    We present an improved measurement of the Rossiter-McLaughlin effect for the exoplanetary system HD 17156, based on radial-velocity data gathered with the Subaru 8.2m telescope throughout the planetary transit of UT 2008 ...
  • Liu, Adrian; Tegmark, Max Erik; Bowman, Judd; Hewitt, Jacqueline N.; Zaldarriaga, Matias (Oxford University Press, 2009-09)
    21-cm tomography is expected to be difficult in part because of serious foreground contamination. Previous studies have found that line-of-sight approaches are capable of cleaning foregrounds to an acceptable level on large ...
  • Barth, Marita C.; Dederich, Debra A.; Dedon, Peter C. (Informa Healthcare, 2009-07)
    A rigorous understanding of the biological function of superhelical tension in cellular DNA requires the development of new tools and model systems for study. To this end, an ethidium bromide–free method has been developed ...
  • Hirano, Teruyuki; Suto, Yasushi; Winn, Joshua Nathan; Taruya, Atshushi; Narita, Norio; Albrecht, Simon H.; Sato, Bunei (IOP Publishing, 2011-11)
    We present an improved formula for the anomalous radial velocity of the star during planetary transits due to the Rossiter-McLaughlin (RM) effect. The improvement comes from a more realistic description of the stellar ...
  • Veneziano, Daniele; Furcolo, Pierluigi (European Geosciences Union, American Geophysical Union, 2009-11)
    A fundamental problem in the analysis of multifractal processes is to estimate the scaling exponent K(q) of moments of different order q from data. Conventional estimators use the empirical moments μ^[subscript r][superscript ...
  • Ng, Tim; Nguyen, Kham; Zbib, Rabih M.; Nguyen, Long (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2009-05)
    In this paper, we show the progress for Arabic speech recognition by incorporating contextual information into the process of morphological decomposition. The new approach achieves lower out-of-vocabulary and word error ...
  • Mariani, C.; Cheng, G.; Shaevitz, M. H.; Conrad, Janet (American Physical Society (APS), 2011-12)
    This paper describes an improved parametrization for proton-beryllium production of secondary K[superscript +] mesons for experiments with primary proton beams from 8.89 to 24  GeV/c. The parametrization is based on Feynman ...
  • Sandberg, Rickard; Larsson, Ola (BioMed Central Ltd, 2007-02)
    Background: Microarrays enable high throughput detection of transcript expression levels. Different investigators have recently introduced updated probe set definitions to more accurately map probes to our current knowledge ...

    We report on new transit photometry for the super-Earth 55 Cnc e obtained with Warm Spitzer/IRAC at 4.5 μm. An individual analysis of these new data leads to a planet radius of [superscript 2.21]+0.15 [over] -0.16 R[subscript ...
  • Bauer, Gerry P.; Gomez-Ceballos, Guillelmo; Goncharov, Maxim; Makhoul, Khaldoun; Paus, Christoph M. E. (American Physical Society, 2010-12)
    We search for the standard model Higgs boson produced with a Z boson in 4.1  fb-1 [fb superscript -1] of integrated luminosity collected with the CDF II detector at the Tevatron. In events consistent with the decay of the ...
