  • Grinberg, Victoria; Steiner, James F.; McClintock, Jeffrey E.; Pottschmidt, Katja; Rothschild, Richard E.; Garcia, Javier A. (IOP Publishing, 2016-02)
    We have developed a correction tool to improve the quality of Rossi X-ray Timing Explorer (RXTE) High Energy X-ray Timing Experiment (HEXTE) spectra by employing the same method we used earlier to improve the quality of ...
  • McClintock, Jeffrey E.; Steiner, James F.; Grinberg, Victoria; Garcia, Javier A.; Remillard, Ronald Alan (IOP Publishing, 2014-09)
    We fitted all of the several hundred RXTE PCA spectra of the Crab individually to a simple power-law model; the total number of counts in the composite spectrum is >10[superscript 9]. We then used the spectrum of residuals ...
  • Gayeski, Nicholas; Zakula, Tea; Armstrong, Peter R.; Norford, Leslie Keith (American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE), 2010-10)
    Inverter-driven variable-capacity air conditioners, heat pumps, and chillers can provide energy-efficient cooling, particularly at part-load capacity. Varying the capacity of vapor compression systems enables operation at ...
  • Rambeloarison, Muriel L.; Feizi-Khankandi, Soheil; Angelopoulos, Georgios; Medard, Muriel (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2012-11)
    In this paper, we present an empirical rate-distortion study of a communication scheme that uses compressive sensing (CS) as joint source-channel coding. We investigate the rate-distortion behavior of both point-to-point ...
  • Mandelbaum, Tal; Lee, Joon; Scott, Daniel J.; Mark, Roger Greenwood; Malhotra, Atul; Howell, Michael D.; Talmor, Daniel (Springer-Verlag, 2012-12)
    Purpose: The observation periods and thresholds of serum creatinine and urine output defined in the Acute Kidney Injury Network (AKIN) criteria were not empirically derived. By continuously varying creatinine/urine output ...
  • Wang, Pu; Liu, Like; Li, Xiamiao; Li, Guanliang; Gonzalez, Marta C. (Institute of Physics Publishing, 2014-01)
    Navigation problem in lattices with long-range connections has been widely studied to understand the design principles for optimal transport networks; however, the travel cost of long-range connections was not considered ...
  • Hager, Bradford H; Tal, Yuval (American Geophysical Union (AGU), 2015-09)
    Whether fault slip occurs seismically or aseismically depends on the frictional properties of the fault, which might be expected to depend on rock type and depth, as well as other factors. To examine the effect of rock ...
  • Tackmann, Frank J.; Waalewijn, Wouter J.; Moult, Ian James; Stewart, Iain (American Physical Society, 2016-05)
    Many state-of-the-art QCD calculations for multileg processes use helicity amplitudes as their fundamental ingredients. We construct a simple and easy-to-use helicity operator basis in soft-collinear effective theory (SCET), ...
  • Christia, Fotini; Beath, Andrew; Enikolopov, Ruben (Cambridge University Press, 2013-07)
    In societies with widespread gender discrimination, development programs with gender quotas are considered a way to improve women's economic, political, and social status. Using a randomized field experiment across 500 ...
  • Shapiro, Irina M.; Cheng, Albert W.; Flytzanis, Nicholas C.; Balsamo, Michele; Condeelis, John S.; Oktay, Maja H.; Burge, Christopher B.; Gertler, Frank (Public Library of Science, 2011-08)
    Epithelial-mesenchymal transition (EMT), a mechanism important for embryonic development, plays a critical role during malignant transformation. While much is known about transcriptional regulation of EMT, alternative ...
  • Shapira, Ofer; Abouraddy, Ayman F.; Hu, Qichao; Shemuly, Dana; Joannopoulos, John D.; Fink, Yoel (Optical Society of America, 2010-06)
    The ability to precisely and selectively excite superpositions of specific fiber eigenmodes allows one in principle to control the three dimensional field distribution along the length of a fiber. Here we demonstrate the ...
  • Helmer, Karl G.; Ambite, Jose Luis; Ames, Joseph; Ananthakrishnan, Rachana; Burns, Gully; Chervenak, Ann L.; Foster, Ian; Liming, Lee; Keator, David; Macciardi, Fabio; Madduri, Ravi; Navarro, John-Paul; Potkin, Steven; Rosen, Bruce R.; Ruffins, Seth; Schuler, Robert; Turner, Jessica A.; Toga, Arthur; Williams, Christina; Kesselman, Carl; Biomedical Informatics Research Network (BMJ Publishing Group on behalf of the American Medical Informatics Association, 2011-04)
    Objective As biomedical technology becomes increasingly sophisticated, researchers can probe ever more subtle effects with the added requirement that the investigation of small effects often requires the acquisition of ...
  • Chuah, Meng Yee; Kim, Sangbae (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2014-03)
    This paper presents a new force sensor design approach that maps the local sampling of pressure inside a composite polymeric footpad to forces in three axes, designed for running robots. Conventional multiaxis force sensors ...
  • Oseledets, Ivan V.; Karniadakis, George E.; Daniel, Luca; Zhang, Zheng; Yang, Xiu (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2014-11)
    Hierarchical uncertainty quantification can reduce the computational cost of stochastic circuit simulation by employing spectral methods at different levels. This paper presents an efficient framework to simulate hierarchically ...
  • Yeng, YiXiang; Ghebrebrhan, Michael; Bermel, Peter A.; Chan, Walker R.; Joannopoulos, John D.; Soljacic, Marin; Celanovic, Ivan (National Academy of Sciences, 2012-02)
    The nascent field of high-temperature nanophotonics could potentially enable many important solid-state energy conversion applications, such as thermophotovoltaic energy generation, selective solar absorption, and selective ...
  • de Montjoye, Yves-Alexandre; Kendall, Jake; Kerry, Cameron (Brookings Center for Technology Innovation, 2014-11)
