  • Acemoglu, Daron; Akcigit, Ufuk (Wiley Blackwell, 2011-12)
    To what extent and in what form should the intellectual property rights (IPR) of innovators be protected? Should a company with a large technology lead over its rivals receive the same IPR protection as a company with a ...
  • Redding, Josh; Geramifard, Alborz; Undurti, Aditya; Choi, Han-Lim; How, Jonathan P. (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2010-07)
    This paper presents an extension of existing cooperative control algorithms that have been developed for multi-UAV applications to utilize real-time observations and/or performance metric(s) in conjunction with learning ...
  • Geramifard, Alborz; Redding, Joshua; How, Jonathan P. (Springer-Verlag, 2013-03)
    Planning for multi-agent systems such as task assignment for teams of limited-fuel unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) is challenging due to uncertainties in the assumed models and the very large size of the planning space. ...
  • Klann, Jeffrey G.; Szolovits, Peter (BioMed Central Ltd, 2009-11)
    Background: Capturing accurate and machine-interpretable primary data from clinical encounters is a challenging task, yet critical to the integrity of the practice of medicine. We explore the intriguing possibility that ...
  • Graves, William S.; Kaertner, Franz X.; Moncton, David E.; Piot, Philippe (American Physical Society, 2012-06)
    A novel method of producing intense short wavelength radiation from relativistic electrons is described. The electrons are periodically bunched at the wavelength of interest enabling in-phase superradiant emission that is ...
  • Muller, Caroline; O'Gorman, Paul Ambrose; Back, Larissa E. (American Meteorological Society, 2011-06)
    A cloud-resolving model is used to investigate the effect of warming on high percentiles of precipitation (precipitation extremes) in the idealized setting of radiative-convective equilibrium. While this idealized setting ...
  • Howard, Newton; Cambria, Erik (Springer, 2013-06)
    As the gap between human and machine shrinks, it becomes increasingly important to develop computer systems that incorporate or enhance existing Situation Awareness. However, these tend to focus on raw quantitative parameters, ...
  • Bombin, Hector; Kargarian, M.; Martin-Delgado, M. A. (American Physical Society, 2009-08)
    We introduce a two-body quantum Hamiltonian model of spin 1/2 on a two-dimensional spatial lattice with exact topological degeneracy in all coupling regimes. There exists a gapped phase in which the low-energy sector ...
  • Wang, Chong; Todadri, Senthil (American Physical Society, 2014-05)
    Symmetry protected topological (SPT) phases are a minimal generalization of the concept of topological insulators to interacting systems. In this paper, we describe the classification and properties of such phases for ...
  • Tang, Evelyn May Yin; Wen, Xiao-Gang (American Physical Society, 2012-08)
    In free fermion systems with given symmetry and dimension, the possible topological phases are labeled by elements of only three types of Abelian groups, 0, Z[subscript 2], or Z. For example, noninteracting one-dimensional ...
  • Szolovits, Peter; Berners-Lee, Tim; Weitzner, Daniel J.; Schraefel, M. C.; André, Paul; White, Ryen; Tan, Desney; Consolvo, Sunny; Jacobs, Robert; Kohane, Isaac; La Dantec, Christopher A.; Mamykina, Lena; Marsden, Gary; Shneiderman, Ben (Association for Computing Machinery, 2009-04)
    While health records are increasingly stored electronically, we, as citizens, have little access to this data about ourselves. We are not used to thinking of these official records either as ours or as useful to us. We ...
  • Luhar, Mitul; Rominger, Jeffrey Tsaros; Nepf, Heidi (Springer-Verlag, 2008-07)
    This paper summarizes recent advances in vegetation hydrodynamics and uses the new concepts to explore not only how vegetation impacts flow and transport, but also how flow feedbacks can influence vegetation spatial ...
  • Coughlin, M.; Mitchison, T. J.; Chang, Paul (American Society for Cell Biology, 2009-09)
    Poly(ADP-ribose) (pADPr), made by PARP-5a/tankyrase-1, localizes to the poles of mitotic spindles and is required for bipolar spindle assembly, but its molecular function in the spindle is poorly understood. To investigate ...
  • Boechler, Nicholas; Eliason, Jeffrey Kristian; Kumar, Anshuman; Maznev, Alexei; Nelson, Keith Adam; Fang, Nicholas Xuanlai (American Physical Society, 2013-07)
    We study the interaction of surface acoustic waves (SAWs) with a contact-based vibrational resonance of 1  μm silica microspheres forming a two-dimensional granular crystal adhered to a substrate. The laser-induced transient ...
  • Gong, S. W.; Goh, B. H. T.; Ohl, S. W.; Khoo, Boo Cheong (American Physical Society, 2012-08)
    In this paper, the physical behaviors of the interaction between a spark-generated bubble and a rubber beam are studied. Both numerical and experimental approaches are employed to investigate the bubble collapse near the ...
  • Ram, Abhay K.; Kominis, Y.; Hizanidis, K. (American Physical Society, 2012-01)
    Charged particle interaction with localized wave packets in a magnetic field is formulated using the canonical perturbation theory and the Lie transform theory. An electrostatic wave packet characterized by a wide range ...
  • Bourouiba, Lydia; Gourley, Stephen A.; Liu, Rongsong; Wu, Jianhong (Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics, 2011-03)
    We investigate the role of migratory birds in the spread of H5N1 avian influenza, focusing on the interaction of a migratory bird species with nonmigratory poultry. The model is of patch type and is derived with the aid ...
  • Stone, Jennifer D.; Artyomov, Maxim N.; Chervin, Adam S.; Chakraborty, Arup K.; Eisen, Herman N.; Kranz, David (American Association of Immunologists, 2011-11)
    he binding of oligomeric peptide–MHC (pMHC) complexes to cell surface TCR can be considered to approximate TCR–pMHC interactions at cell-cell interfaces. In this study, we analyzed the equilibrium binding of streptavidin-based ...
  • Fedorenko, Evelina G.; Piantadosi, Steven Thomas; Gibson, Edward A. (Atlas Scienfitic Publishing, LP, 2012-01)
    This paper reports the results of a lexical decision experiment and a selfpaced reading experiment that investigate the interaction between syntactic and lexical information in on-line language processing, using the ...
  • Werley, Christopher Alan; Fan, Kebin; Strikwerda, Andrew C.; Wu, Qiang; Lin, Kung-Hsuan; Averitt, Richard D.; Nelson, Keith Adam (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2009-11)
    We apply newly developed, phase-sensitive imaging to enable sharply focused visualization of terahertz waves in electro-optic media. This approach allows quantitative characterization of THz waves as they interact with ...
