  • Jung, Sunghwan; Winter, Amos; Hosoi, Anette E. (Elsevier B.V., 2011-05)
    Numerous animals live in, and locomote through, subsea soils. To move in a medium dominated by frictional interactions, many of these animals have adopted unique burrowing strategies. This paper presents a burrowing model ...
  • Sander, Michelle Yen-Ling; Birge, Jonathan R.; Benedick, Andrew J.; Crespo, Helder M.; Kaertner, Franz X. (Optical Society of America, 2009-03)
    An extensive one-dimensional laser model based on dispersion managed mode locking is presented that accurately describes the pulse dynamics of octave-spanning titanium:sapphire lasers generating sub-two-cycle pulses. By ...
  • Kerr, Catherine E.; Hamalainen, Matti S.; Jones, Stephanie R.; Wan, Qian; Pritchett, Dominique Leon; Moore, Christopher I. (Public Library of Science, 2011-09)
    Background Behavioral paradigms applied during human recordings in electro- and magneto- encephalography (EEG and MEG) typically require 1–2 hours of data collection. Over this time scale, the natural fluctuations in ...
  • Duzdevich, Daniel; Ticau, Simina; Greene, Eric C.; Warner, Megan Dobbins; Ivica, Nikola; Bell, Stephen P (Elsevier, 2015-05)
    Eukaryotic replication initiation is highly regulated and dynamic. It begins with the origin recognition complex (ORC) binding DNA sites called origins of replication. ORC, together with Cdc6 and Cdt1, mediate pre-replicative ...
  • Acemoglu, Daron; Bimpikis, Kostas; Ozdaglar, Asuman E. (The Econometric Society, 2014-01)
    We develop a model of information exchange through communication and investigate its implications for information aggregation in large societies. An underlying state determines payoffs from different actions. Agents decide ...
  • Isik, Leyla; Meyers, Ethan M.; Leibo, Joel Z.; Poggio, Tomaso A. (American Physiological Society, 2013-10)
    The human visual system can rapidly recognize objects despite transformations that alter their appearance. The precise timing of when the brain computes neural representations that are invariant to particular transformations, ...
  • Bühler, Oliver; Callies, Joern; Ferrari, Raffaele (American Meteorological Society, 2016-11)
    Spectral analysis is applied to infer the dynamics of mesoscale winds from aircraft observations in the upper troposphere and lower stratosphere. Two datasets are analyzed: one collected aboard commercial aircraft and one ...
  • Bustos, Sebastian; Gomez, Charles; Hausmann, Ricardo; Hidalgo, Cesar A. (Public Library of Science, 2012-11)
    In economic systems, the mix of products that countries make or export has been shown to be a strong leading indicator of economic growth. Hence, methods to characterize and predict the structure of the network connecting ...
  • Skow, Bradford (Scholarly Publishing Office, University of Michigan Library, 2010-01)
    Maybe there is something rather than nothing because the nothingness force acted on itself, and when the nothing nothings itself it produces something. Robert Nozick suggested this as a candidate explanation of the fact ...
  • Athey, Susan; Ellison, Glenn (Wiley Blackwell, 2014-04)
    This paper considers a dynamic model of the evolution of open-source software projects, focusing on the evolution of quality, contributing programmers, and users who contribute customer support to other users. Programmers ...
  • Li, Gaojin; McKinley, Gareth H; Ardekani, Arezoo (Cambridge University Press, 2015-11)
    The migration of a sphere in the pressure-driven channel flow of a viscoelastic fluid is studied numerically. The effects of inertia, elasticity, shear-thinning viscosity, secondary flows and the blockage ratio are considered ...
  • Chen, Hsieh; Alexander-Katz, Alfredo (American Physical Society (APS), 2011-09)
    Using hydrodynamic simulations we examine the behavior of single polymers in a confined colloidal suspension under flow. We study the conformations of both, collapsed and noncollapsed polymers. Our results show that the ...
  • Ishizawa, Y.; Ahmed, O. J.; Patel, S. R.; Gale, J. T.; Sierra-Mercado, D.; Eskandar, E. N.; Brown, Emery Neal (Society for Neuroscience, 2016-07)
    The precise neural mechanisms underlying transitions between consciousness and anesthetic-induced unconsciousness remain unclear. Here, we studied intracortical neuronal dynamics leading to propofol-induced unconsciousness ...
  • Ghoshal, Gourab; Blumm, Nicholas; Forro, Zalan; Schich, Maximilian; Bianconi, Ginestra; Bouchaud, Jean-Philippe; Barabasi, Albert-Laszlo (American Physical Society, 2012-09)
    The world is addicted to ranking: everything, from the reputation of scientists, journals, and universities to purchasing decisions is driven by measured or perceived differences between them. Here, we analyze empirical ...
  • Caughey, Devin; Warshaw, Christopher S (Wiley Blackwell, 2016-10)
    Applying a dynamic latent-variable model to data on 148 policies collected over eight decades (1936–2014), we produce the first yearly measure of the policy liberalism of U.S. states. Our dynamic measure of state policy ...
  • Rapoport, Elizabeth Ashera; Beach, Geoffrey Stephen (American Institute of Physics (AIP), 2012-02)
    The dynamics of fluid-borne superparamagnetic bead transport by field-driven domain walls in submicrometer ferromagnetic tracks is studied experimentally together with numerical and analytical modeling. Experiments show ...
  • Veysset, David Georges; Hsieh, Alex J.; Kooi, Steven E.; Maznev, Alexei; Masser, Kevin A.; Nelson, Keith Adam (Springer Nature, 2016-05)
    Understanding high–velocity microparticle impact is essential for many fields, from space exploration to medicine and biology. Investigations of microscale impact have hitherto been limited to post–mortem analysis of ...
  • Wu, Weisheng; Cheng, Yong; Keller, Cheryl A.; Ernst, Jason; Kumar, Swathi Ashok; Mishra, Tejaswini; Morrissey, Christapher; Dorman, Christine M.; Chen, Kuan-Bei; Drautz, Daniela; Giardine, Belinda; Shibata, Yoichiro; Song, Lingyun; Pimkin, Max; Crawford, Gregory E.; Furey, Terrence S.; Kellis, Manolis; Miller, Webb; Taylor, James; Schuster, Stephan C.; Zhang, Yu; Chiaromonte, Francesca; Blobel, Gerd A.; Weiss, Mitchell J.; Hardison, Ross C. (Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory Press, 2011-07)
    Interplays among lineage-specific nuclear proteins, chromatin modifying enzymes, and the basal transcription machinery govern cellular differentiation, but their dynamics of action and coordination with transcriptional ...
  • Kingsbery, James; Levin, Alexander; Preygel, Anatoly; Silva, Cesar E. (American Institute of Mathematical Sciences, 2011-02)
    There is a natural continuous realization of the one-sided Bernoulli shift on the [p] -adic integers as the map that shifts the coefficients of the [p] -adic expansion to the left. We study this map's Mahler power series ...
  • Laub, Michael T.; Chen, Y. Erin; Tsokos, Christos G.; Biondi, Emanuele G.; Perchuk, Barrett (American Society for Microbiology, 2009-09)
    In Caulobacter crescentus, progression through the cell cycle is governed by the periodic activation and inactivation of the master regulator CtrA. Two phosphorelays, each initiating with the histidine kinase CckA, ...
