  • Schrock, Richard Royce; Jiang, Annie J.; Marinescu, Smaranda C.; Simpson, Jeffrey H.; Muller, Peter (American Chemical Society, 2010-04)
    Addition of ethylene to Mo(NAr)(CHCMe2Ph)(OHIPT)(Pyr) (NAr = N-2,6-i-Pr2C6H3, OHIPT = O-2,6-(2,4,6-i-Pr3C6H2)2C6H3, Pyr = NC4H4) led to the trigonal-bipyramidal metallacyclobutane complex Mo(NAr)(C3H6)(OHIPT)(Pyr), in which ...
  • Gans, Joshua Samuel; Murray, Fiona E. (University of Chicago Press, 2012-03)
    This paper examines argues that while two distinct perspectives characterize the foundations of the public funding of research – filling a selection gap and solving a disclosure problem – in fact both the selection choices ...
  • Esteban, Alexandre; Popp, Maximilian W.; Vyas, Valmik K.; Strijbis, Karin; Ploegh, Hidde; Fink, Gerald R. (National Academy of Sciences (U.S.), 2011-08)
    Dectin-1, the major β-glucan receptor in leukocytes, triggers an effective immune response upon fungal recognition. Here we use sortase-mediated transpeptidation, a technique that allows placement of a variety of probes ...
  • Thompson, Dawn Anne; Regev, Aviv (Elsevier B.V., 2009-11)
    Regulatory divergence is likely a major driving force in evolution. Comparative genomics is being increasingly used to infer the evolution of gene regulation. Ascomycota fungi are uniquely suited among eukaryotes for ...
  • Lin, Jinrong; Nowak, Michael A.; Chakrabarty, Deepto (IOP Publishing, 2009-11)
    The low-mass X-ray binary 4U 2129+47 was discovered during a previous X-ray outburst phase and was classified as an accretion disk corona source. A 1% delay between two mid-eclipse epochs measured ~22 days apart was reported ...
  • Schwab, J.; Podsiadlowski, Ph.; Rappaport, Saul A. (IOP Publishing, 2010-07)
    We use a collection of 14 well-measured neutron-star masses to strengthen the case that a substantial fraction of these neutron stars were formed via electron-capture (e-capture) supernovae (SNe) as opposed to Fe core-collapse ...
  • Hirano, Teruyuki; Winn, Joshua Nathan; Sato, Bunei; Aoki, Wako; Tamura, Motohide; Taruya, Atsushi; Suto, Yasushi (Astronomical Society of Japan, 2011-12)
    Abstract: We report on observations of the Rossiter-McLaughlin (RM) effect for the XO-3 exoplanetary system. The RM effect for the system was previously measured by two different groups, but their results were statistically ...
  • Win, Moe Z.; Chiani, Marco; Shin, Hyundong (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2009-12)
    We review some recent results on the distribution of the eigenvalues of Gaussian quadratic forms and Wishart matrices with arbitrary correlation, in particular including the case where the covariance matrix has eigenvalues ...
  • Dimarogonas, Dimos V.; Johansson, Karl H. (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2009-07)
    An important class of multi-robot formations is specified by desired distances between adjacent robots. In previous work, we showed that distance-based formations can be globally stabilized by negative gradient, potential ...
  • Taylor, Frank E. (American Physical Society, 2012-11)
    This work presents a new inclusive search for supersymmetry (SUSY) by the ATLAS experiment at the LHC in proton-proton collisions at a center-of-mass energy √s=7   TeV in final states with jets, missing transverse momentum ...
  • Seah, Boon-Siew; Bhowmick, Sourav S.; Dewey, C. Forbes; Yu, Hanry (BioMed Central Ltd., 2012-03)
    Background: The availability of large-scale curated protein interaction datasets has given rise to the opportunity to investigate higher level organization and modularity within the protein interaction network (PPI) using ...
  • Etingof, Pavel I.; Nikshych, Dmitri; Ostrik, Viktor (European Mathematical Society, 2010-01)
    We apply the yoga of classical homotopy theory to classification problems of G-extensions of fusion and braided fusion categories, where G is a finite group. Namely, we reduce such problems to classification (up to homotopy) ...
  • Wirth, B. D.; Nordlund, K.; Whyte, Dennis G.; Xu, D. (Materials Research Society / Cambridge University Press, 2011-03)
    The plasma facing components, first wall, and blanket systems of future tokamak-based fusion power plants arguably represent the single greatest materials engineering challenge of all time. Indeed, the United States National ...
  • Seguin, Fredrick Hampton; Petrasso, Richard D.; Chang, P. Y.; Fiksel, G.; Hohenberger, M.; Knauer, J. P.; Betti, R.; Marshall, F. J.; Meyerhofer, D. D. (American Physical Society, 2011-07)
    Enhancement of the ion temperature and fusion yield has been observed in magnetized laser-driven inertial confinement fusion implosions on the OMEGA Laser Facility. A spherical CH target with a 10 atm D[subscript 2] gas ...
  • Picard, Rosalind W. (Royal Society of London, 2009-12)
    People on the autism spectrum often experience states of emotional or cognitive overload that pose challenges to their interests in learning and communicating. Measurements taken from home and school environments show ...
  • Yu, Winston; Yang, Yi-Chen; Savitsky, Andre; Alford, Donald; Brown, Casey; Wescoat, James; Debowicz, Dario; Robinson, Sherman (The World Bank, 2013-04)
    Examines the literature and available data on hydroclimatic variability and change on the Indus Basin plains, comparing historical fluctuations in climatic and hydrologic variables and reviewing scenarios of climate change ...
  • Blainey, Paul C. (Wiley Blackwell, 2013-02)
    Interest in the expanding catalog of uncultivated microorganisms, increasing recognition of heterogeneity among seemingly similar cells, and technological advances in whole-genome amplification and single-cell manipulation ...
  • Mirlacher, T.; Montpetit, Marie-Jose; Klym, Natalie (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2009-08)
    As more and more content migrates to the Internet, "personal" video choices are becoming the norm not the exception. The impact of Internet content and IP based business of video distribution is still difficult to evaluate. ...
  • Selin, Noelle Eckley; Sunderland, Elsie M. (BioMed Central Ltd., 2013-01)
    In their new paper, Bellanger and coauthors show substantial economic impacts to the EU from neurocognitive impairment associated with methylmercury (MeHg) exposures. The main source of MeHg exposure is seafood consumption, ...
  • Aldridge, Bree B.; Saez-Rodriguez, Julio; Muhlich, Jeremy L.; Sorger, Peter K.; Lauffenburger, Douglas A. (Public Library of Science, 2007-12)
    When modeling cell signaling networks, a balance must be struck between mechanistic detail and ease of interpretation. In this paper we apply a fuzzy logic framework to the analysis of a large, systematic dataset describing ...
