  • Cowan, Ray Franklin; Dujmic, Denis; Fisher, Peter H.; Sciolla, Gabriella; Yamamoto, Richard K.; Zhao, Min Liang (American Physical Society, 2010-06)
    A search for the neutrinoless, lepton-flavor violating decay of the τ [tau] lepton into three charged leptons has been performed using an integrated luminosity of 468  fb-1 [fb superscript -1] collected with the BABAR ...
  • Guttman, Mitchell; Donaghey, Julie; Carey, Bryce W.; Garber, Manuel; Grenier, Jennifer K.; Munson, Glen; Young, Geneva; Lucas, Anne Bergstom; Ach, Robert; Bruhn, Laurakay; Yang, Xiaoping; Amit, Ido; Meissner, Alexander; Regev, Aviv; Rinn, John L.; Root, David E.; Lander, Eric S. (Nature Publishing Group, 2011-08)
    Although thousands of large intergenic non-coding RNAs (lincRNAs) have been identified in mammals, few have been functionally characterized, leading to debate about their biological role. To address this, we performed ...
  • Hashimoto, Tatsunori Benjamin; Jaakkola, Tommi S.; Sherwood, Richard; Mazzoni, Esteban O.; Wichterle, Hynek; Gifford, David K. (Oxford University Press, 2012-01)
    We present a method, LineageProgram, that uses the developmental lineage relationship of observed gene expression measurements to improve the learning of developmentally relevant cellular states and expression programs. ...
  • Pierce, Eric T.; Harrell, Grace; Walsh, John; Salazar, Andres F.; Tavares, Casie L.; Chen, Zhe; Purdon, Patrick Lee; Brown, Emery N.; Barbieri, Riccardo (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2009-11)
    Quantitative evaluation of respiratory sinus arrhythmia (RSA) may provide important information in clinical practice of anesthesia and postoperative care. In this paper, we apply a point process method to assess dynamic ...
  • da Silva, Marco; Durand, Fredo; Popovic, Jovan (Association for Computing Machinery (ACM), 2009-08)
    Controllers are necessary for physically-based synthesis of character animation. However, creating controllers requires either manual tuning or expensive computer optimization. We introduce linear Bellman combination as a ...
  • Varshney, Kush R.; Willsky, Alan S.; Willsky, Alan (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2011-06)
    Low-dimensional statistics of measurements play an important role in detection problems, including those encountered in sensor networks. In this work, we focus on learning low-dimensional linear statistics of high-dimensional ...
  • Tsitsiklis, John N.; Rusmevichientong, Paat (INFORMS, 2010-01)
    We consider bandit problems involving a large (possibly infinite) collection of arms, in which the expected reward of each arm is a linear function of an r-dimensional random vector Z ∈ ℝ(superscript r), where r ≥ 2. The ...
  • Kowalski, Elizabeth Joan; Tax, David Samuel; Shapiro, Michael; Sirigiri, Jagadishwar R.; Temkin, Richard J.; Bigelow, Timothy S.; Rasmussen, David A. (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2010-11)
    A linearly polarized (LP[subscript mn]) mode basis set for oversized, corrugated, metallic waveguides is derived for the special case of quarter-wavelength-depth circumferential corrugations. The relationship between the ...
  • Thornton, Richard D.; Fang, Jiarong; Perreault, Brian M.; Thompson, Marc T. (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2009-10)
    This special issue on linear-motor powered transportation covers both supporting technologies and innovative transport systems in various parts of the World, as this technology moves from the lab to commercial operations. ...
  • Taylor, Joshua A.; Gilberston, Eric; Chalfant, Julie; Hover, Franz S. (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2011-04)
    We apply relaxation procedures for polynomial optimization problems to shipboard distribution system design, and obtain new convex formulations for the AC case.
  • Aaronson, Scott (Royal Society, The, 2011-12)
    One of the crown jewels of complexity theory is Valiant's theorem that computing the permanent of an n×n matrix is #P-hard. Here we show that, by using the model of linear-optical quantum computing—and in particular, a ...
  • Baran, Thomas A.; Wei, Dennis; Oppenheim, Alan V. (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2010-03)
    In designing discrete-time filters, the length of the impulse response is often used as an indication of computational cost. In systems where the complexity is dominated by arithmetic operations, the number of nonzero ...
  • Demaine, Erik D.; Aloupis, Greg; Collette, Sébastien; Damian, Mirela; Langerman, Stefan; O’Rourke, Joseph; Ramaswami, Suneeta; Wuhrer, Stefanie (Elsevier, 2009-08)
    In this paper we propose a novel algorithm that, given a source robot S and a target robot T , reconfigures S into T. Both S and T are robots composed of n atoms arranged in 2 × 2 × 2 meta-modules. The reconfiguration ...
  • Taylor, Joshua A.; Hover, Franz S. (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2011-05)
    We apply a linear relaxation procedure for polynomial optimization problems to transmission system planning. The approach recovers and improves upon existing linear models based on the DC approximation. We then consider ...
  • Liang, Xiangdong; Deng, D. S.; Nave, J. C.; Johnson, Steven G. (Cambridge University Press, 2011-08)
    Motivated by complex multi-fluid geometries currently being explored in fibre-device manufacturing, we study capillary instabilities in concentric cylindrical flows of $N$ fluids with arbitrary viscosities, thicknesses, ...
  • Abbe, Emmanuel A.; Zheng, Lizhong (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers / IEEE Information Theory Society, 2010-11)
    Over discrete memoryless channels (DMC), linear decoders (maximizing additive metrics) afford several nice properties. In particular, if suitable encoders are employed, the use of decoding algorithms with manageable ...
  • Levin, Anat; Durand, Fredo (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2010-08)
    Acquiring and representing the 4D space of rays in the world (the light field) is important for many computer vision and graphics applications. Yet, light field acquisition is costly due to their high dimensionality. ...
  • Dong, Andy; Sarkar, Somwrita; Honda, Tomonori; Yang, Maria (Springer-Verlag, 2013-11)
    This paper addresses the problem of describing the decision-making process of a committee of engineers based upon their verbalized linguistic appraisals of alternatives. First, we show a way to model an individual’s ...
  • Byrne, Michael Patrick; O'Gorman, Paul Ambrose (American Geophysical Union (AGU), 2013-10)
    Simulations of warming climates with coupled climate models exhibit strong land-ocean contrasts in changes in surface temperature and relative humidity, but little land-ocean contrast in changes in equivalent potential ...
  • Gifford, Scott Michael; Sharma, Shalabh; Moran, Mary Ann (Frontiers Research Foundation, 2014-04)
    For bacterial communities containing hundreds to thousands of distinct populations, connecting functional processes and environmental dynamics at high taxonomic resolution has remained challenging. Here we use the expression ...
