  • Picard, Rosalind W.; McDuff, Daniel Jonathan; Hoque, Mohammed Ehasanul (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2012-04)
    We create two experimental situations to elicit two affective states: frustration, and delight. In the first experiment, participants were asked to recall situations while expressing either delight or frustration, while ...
  • Machado, Daniel; Costa, Rafael S.; Rocha, Isabel; Tidor, Bruce; Ferreira, Eugenio C. (Elsevier, 2012-01)
    Systems biology provides new approaches for metabolic engineering through the development of models and methods for simulation and optimization of microbial metabolism. Here we explore the relationship between two modeling ...
  • Lee, Hyomin; Rubner, Michael F.; McKinley, Gareth H.; Cohen, Robert E.; Kleingartner, Justin Alan (Royal Society of Chemistry, 2013-05)
    Switchable polymer multilayer coatings consisting of poly(vinyl alcohol) (PVA) and poly(acrylic acid) (PAA) were prepared via Layer-by-Layer (LbL) assembly and post-functionalized with poly(ethylene glycol methyl ether) ...
  • Abin-Fuentes, Andres; Mohamed, Magdy El-Said; Wang, Daniel I.; Prather, Kristala L. Jones (American Society for Microbiology, 2013-10)
    Microbial desulfurization, or biodesulfurization (BDS), of fuels is a promising technology because it can desulfurize compounds that are recalcitrant to the current standard technology in the oil industry. One of the ...
  • Hansen, T.; Hansen, C. J.; Christlieb, N.; Yong, D.; Bessell, M. S.; Beers, Timothy C.; Placco, V. M.; Norris, J. E.; Asplund, M.; Frebel, Anna L.; Garcia Perez, A. E. (IOP Publishing, 2014-05)
    We present an elemental abundance analysis for four newly discovered ultra metal-poor stars from the Hamburg/ESO survey, with [Fe/H] ≤ –4. Based on high-resolution, high signal-to-noise spectra, we derive abundances for ...
  • Dekker, Job; Marti-Renom, Marc A.; Mirny, Leonid A. (Nature Publishing Group, 2013-05)
    How DNA is organized in three dimensions inside the cell nucleus and how this affects the ways in which cells access, read and interpret genetic information are among the longest standing questions in cell biology. Using ...
  • Allegrini, F.; Bzowski, M.; Dayeh, M. A.; DeMajistre, R.; Desai, M. I.; Funsten, H. O.; Fuselier, S. A.; Janzen, Paul H.; Kubiak, M. A.; McComas, D. J.; Reisenfeld, D. B.; Schwadron, N.; Vanderspek, Roland K. (IOP Publishing, 2012-04)
    The Interstellar Boundary Explorer (IBEX) has observed energetic neutral atom (ENA) hydrogen emissions from the edge of the solar system for more than three years. The observations span energies from 0.01 to 6 keV FWHM. ...
  • Dwyer, Morgan; Selva, Daniel; Szajnfarber, Zoe; Del Portillo Barrios, Inigo; Sanchez Net, Marc; Cameron, Bruce Gregory; Crawley, Edward F. (American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics, 2014-08)
    Traditionally, government space agencies have developed aggregated systems that co-host multiple capabilities on shared spacecraft buses. However, in response to cost growth and schedule delays on past programs, leaders ...
  • Bergmann, Jeroen H. M.; Langdon, Patrick M.; Mayagoitia, Ruth E.; Howard, Newton (Public Library of Science, 2014-02)
    Humans appear to be sensitive to relative small changes in their surroundings. These changes are often initially perceived as irrelevant, but they can cause significant changes in behavior. However, how exactly people’s ...
  • Sesar, Branimir; Ivezic, Zeljko; Stuart, J. Scott; Morgan, Dylan M.; Becker, Andrew C.; Sharma, Sanjib; Palaversa, Lovro; Jurić, Mario; Wozniak, Przemyslaw; Oluseyi, Hakeem (IOP Publishing, 2013-06)
    We present a sample of ~5000 RR Lyrae stars selected from the recalibrated LINEAR data set and detected at heliocentric distances between 5 kpc and 30 kpc over ~8000 deg[superscript 2] of sky. The coordinates and light ...
  • Palaversa, Lovro; Ivezic, Zeljko; Eyer, Laurent; Ruzdjak, Domagoj; Sudar, Davor; Galin, Mario; Kroflin, Andrea; Mesaric, Martina; Munk, Petra; Vrbanec, Dijana; Bozic, Hrvoje; Loebman, Sarah; Sesar, Branimir; Rimoldini, Lorenzo; Hunt-Walker, Nicholas; VanderPlas, Jacob; Westman, David; Stuart, J. Scott; Becker, Andrew C.; Srdoc, Gregor; Wozniak, Przemyslaw; Oluseyi, Hakeem (IOP Publishing, 2013-09)
    We describe the construction of a highly reliable sample of ~7000 optically faint periodic variable stars with light curves obtained by the asteroid survey LINEAR across 10,000 deg[superscript 2] of the northern sky. The ...
  • Sesar, Branimir; Stuart, J. Scott; Morgan, Dylan P.; Becker, Andrew C.; Ivezic, Zeljko; Wozniak, Przemyslaw (IOP Publishing, 2011-11)
    We describe photometric recalibration of data obtained by the asteroid survey LINEAR. Although LINEAR was designed for astrometric discovery of moving objects, the data set described here contains over 5 billion photometric ...
  • Kung, Kevin S.; Greco, Kael; Sobolevsky, Stanislav; Ratti, Carlo (Public Library of Science, 2014-06)
    Home-work commuting has always attracted significant research attention because of its impact on human mobility. One of the key assumptions in this domain of study is the universal uniformity of commute times. However, a ...
  • Roy, Brandon Cain; Frank, Michael C.; Roy, Deb K. (Cognitive Science Society, Inc., 2009-07)
    What is the role of the linguistic environment in children’s early word learning? Here we provide a preliminary analysis of one child’s linguistic development, using a portion of the high-density longitudinal data ...
  • Nixon, Sean D.; Yang, Jianke; Akylas, Triantaphyllos R. (Wiley Blackwell, 2013-03)
    As a first step toward a fully two-dimensional asymptotic theory for the bifurcation of solitons from infinitesimal continuous waves, an analytical theory is presented for line solitons, whose envelope varies only along ...
  • Ulrich, Alexander; Andersen, Kasper R.; Schwartz, Thomas (Public Library of Science, 2012-12)
    We present a fast, reliable and inexpensive restriction-free cloning method for seamless DNA insertion into any plasmid without sequence limitation. Exponential megapriming PCR (EMP) cloning requires two consecutive PCR ...
  • Amin, Saurabh; Hante, Falk M.; Bayen, Alexandre M. (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2011-05)
    We consider the initial-boundary value problem governed by systems of linear hyperbolic partial differential equations in the canonical diagonal form and study conditions for exponential stability when the system discontinuously ...
  • Lazazzera, Beth A.; Solomon, Jonathan M.; Grossman, Alan D. (Elsevier, 1997-06)
    Competence development and sporulation in B. subtilis are partly controlled by peptides that accumulate in culture medium as cells grow to high density. We constructed two genes that encode mature forms of two different ...
  • Chao, John C.; Hausman, Jerry A.; Newey, Whitney K.; Swanson, Norman R.; Woutersen, Tiemen (Emerald (MCB UP), 2012)
    In a recent paper, Hausman, Newey, Woutersen, Chao, and Swanson (2012) propose a new estimator, HFUL (Heteroscedasticity robust Fuller), for the linear model with endogeneity. This estimator is consistent and asymptotically ...
  • Iyer, Rajkamal; Schoar, Antoinette (American Economic Association, 2015-05)
    This paper examines frictions in contract renegotiation and its implications for allocative efficiency of contracts. Using a novel audit study methodology, we find that contracting parties in general are reluctant to engage ...
