  • Kausel, Eduardo A. (Royal Society, 2012-10)
    This article revisits the classical problem of horizontal and vertical point loads suddenly applied onto the surface of a homogeneous, elastic half-space, and provides a complete set of exact, explicit formulae which are ...
  • Mejillano, Marisan R.; Kojima, Shin-ichiro; Applewhite, Derek Anthony; Svitkina, Tatyana M.; Borisy, Gary G.; Gertler, Frank (Elsevier, 2004-08)
    Understanding how a particular cell type expresses the lamellipodial or filopodial form of the actin machinery is essential to understanding a cell's functional interactions. To determine how a cell “chooses” among these ...
  • Buffalo, Elizabeth A.; Fries, Pascal; Landman, Rogier; Buschman, Tim; Desimone, Robert (Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (PNAS), 2011-06)
    Attention to a stimulus enhances both neuronal responses and gamma frequency synchrony in visual area V4, both of which should increase the impact of attended information on downstream neurons. To determine whether gamma ...
  • Apicella, Alfonso J.; Wickersham, Ian R.; Seung, H. Sebastian; Shepherd, Gordon M. G. (Society for Neuroscience, 2012-05)
    In motor cortex, long-range output to subcortical motor circuits depends on excitatory and inhibitory inputs converging on projection neurons in layers 5A/B. How interneurons interconnect with these projection neurons, and ...
  • Entekhabi, Dara; Campo, L.; Castelli, F.; Caparrini, F. (Copernicus Publications, 2009-09)
    A valid tool for the retrieving of the turbulent fluxes that characterize the surface energy budget is constituted by the remote sensing of land surface states. In this study sequences of satellite-derived observations ...
  • Byrne, Michael Patrick; O'Gorman, Paul Ambrose (American Meteorological Society, 2013-06)
    Surface temperatures increase at a greater rate over land than ocean in simulations and observations of global warming. It has previously been proposed that this land–ocean warming contrast is related to different changes ...
  • Lander, Eric S.; Hodis, Eran; Watson, Ian R.; Kryukov, Gregory V.; Arold, Stefan T.; Imielinski, Marcin; Theurillat, Jean-Philippe; Nickerson, Elizabeth; Auclair, Daniel; Li, Liren; Place, Chelsea; DiCara, Daniel; Ramos, Alex H.; Lawrence, Michael S.; Cibulskis, Kristian; Sivachenko, Andrey; Voet, Douglas; Saksena, Gordon; Stransky, Nicholas; Onofrio, Robert C. (Elsevier, 2012-07)
    Despite recent insights into melanoma genetics, systematic surveys for driver mutations are challenged by an abundance of passenger mutations caused by carcinogenic UV light exposure. We developed a permutation-based ...
  • Lander, Eric S. (Nature Publishing Group, 2010-02)
    A powerful way to discover key genes with causal roles in oncogenesis is to identify genomic regions that undergo frequent alteration in human cancers. Here we present high-resolution analyses of somatic copy-number ...
  • Kim, Annette M. (U.S. Dept. of Housing and Urban Development, Office of Policy Development and Research, 2009)
    Land-taking controversies around the globe have been making headline news recently. This article examines the similarities, differences, and ironies in what has been happening in China, Vietnam, and the United States. Even ...
  • Huang, Albert S.; Teller, Seth (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2009-12)
    This paper describes an algorithm for estimating lane boundaries and curbs from a moving vehicle using noisy observations and a probabilistic model of curvature. The primary contribution of this paper is a curve model we ...
  • Ansel, Jason Andrew; Wong, Yee Lok; Chan, Cy; Olszewski, Marek Krystyn; Edelman, Alan; Amarasinghe, Saman P. (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2011-05)
    Approximating ideal program outputs is a common technique for solving computationally difficult problems, for adhering to processing or timing constraints, and for performance optimization in situations where perfect ...
  • Ansel, Jason Andrew; Wong, Yee Lok; Chan, Cy; Olszewski, Marek Krystyn; Edelman, Alan; Amarasinghe, Saman P. (IEEE Computer Society, 2011-04)
    Approximating ideal program outputs is a common technique for solving computationally difficult problems, for adhering to processing or timing constraints, and for performance optimization in situations where perfect ...
  • Unknown author (Association for Computing Machinery (ACM), 2012-01)
    It is becoming increasingly important for applications to protect sensitive data. With current techniques, the programmer bears the burden of ensuring that the application's behavior adheres to policies about where sensitive ...
  • Hsu, Bo-June; Glass, James R. (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2009-05)
    In limited data domains, many effective language modeling techniques construct models with parameters to be estimated on an in-domain development set. However, in some domains, no such data exist beyond the unlabeled test ...
  • Bedny, Marina; Pascual-Leone, Alvaro; Dodell-Feder, David; Fedorenko, Evelina G.; Saxe, Rebecca R. (National Academy of Sciences (U.S.), 2011-03)
    Humans are thought to have evolved brain regions in the left frontal and temporal cortex that are uniquely capable of language processing. However, congenitally blind individuals also activate the visual cortex in some ...
  • Duncan, John; Kanwisher, Nancy; Fedorenko, Evelina G. (Elsevier, 2012-11)
    In 1861, Paul Broca stood up before the Anthropological Society of Paris and announced that the left frontal lobe was the seat of speech. Ever since, Broca’s eponymous brain region has served as a primary battleground for ...
  • Imperiali, Barbara (Elsevier, 2010-01)
    Lanthanide-tagged proteins are valuable for exploiting the unique properties of Ln ions for investigating protein structure, function, and dynamics. Introduction of the Ln into the target is accomplished via chemical ...
  • Kausel, Eduardo A.; Irfan Baig, Mirza M. (American Mathematical Society (AMS), 2011-09)
    This note deals with the Laplace transforms of integrands of the form $ {x^\lambda }{J_\alpha }\left( {ax} \right){J_\beta }\left( {bx} \right)$, which are found in numerous fields of application. Specifically, we provide ...
  • Taylor, Joshua A.; Hover, Franz S. (Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics, 2011-09)
    We define a class of Laplacians for multicommodity, undirected flow networks, and bound their smallest nonzero eigenvalues with a generalization of the sparsest cut.
  • Ohannessian, Mesrob I.; Dahleh, Munther A. (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2012-03)
    How can we effectively model situations with large alphabets? On a pragmatic level, any engineered system, be it for inference, communication, or encryption, requires working with a finite number of symbols. Therefore, the ...
