  • Kuepfer, Lars; Sauer, Uwe; Parrilo, Pablo A. (BioMed Central Ltd, 2007-01)
    Background: Current approaches to parameter estimation are often inappropriate or inconvenient for the modelling of complex biological systems. For systems described by nonlinear equations, the conventional approach is to ...
  • White, Jacob K.; Rodriguez, Alejandro W.; Johnson, Steven G.; Reid, M. T. Homer (American Physical Society, 2009-07)
    We introduce an efficient technique for computing Casimir energies and forces between objects of arbitrarily complex 3D geometries. In contrast to other recently developed methods, our technique easily handles nonspheroidal, ...
  • Johnson, Steven G.; White, Jacob K.; Rodriguez, Alejandro W.; Reid, M. T. Homer (The American Physical Society, 2009-07)
    We introduce an effcient technique for computing Casimir energies and forces between objects of arbitrarily complex 3D geometries. In contrast to other recently developed methods, our technique easily handles non-spheroidal, ...
  • Reid, McMahon Thomas Homer; Johnson, Steven G (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2015-06)
    We present concise, computationally efficient formulas for several quantities of interest-including absorbed and scattered power, optical force (radiation pressure), and torque-in scattering calculations performed using ...
  • Silver, Nathaniel W.; King, Bracken Matheny; Nalam, Madhavi N. L.; Cao, Hong; Ali, Akbar; Kiran Kumar Reddy, G. S.; Rana, Tariq M.; Schiffer, Celia A.; Tidor, Bruce (American Chemical Society (ACS), 2013-11)
    Here we present a novel, end-point method using the dead-end-elimination and A* algorithms to efficiently and accurately calculate the change in free energy, enthalpy, and configurational entropy of binding for ligand–receptor ...
  • Amir, Amihood; Aumann, Yonatan; Indyk, Piotr; Levy, Avivit; Porat, Ely (Elsevier, 2009-07)
    Recently, a new pattern matching paradigm was proposed, pattern matching with address errors. In this paradigm approximate string matching problems are studied, where the content is unaltered and only the locations of the ...
  • Warger, William C., II; Guerrera, Stephen; Eastman, Zachary; DiMarzio, Charles A. (Society of Photo-optical Instrumentation Engineers, 2009-03)
    Confocal microscopes achieve high spatial resolution by focusing both a light source and a detector to a single point with an objective having a high numerical aperture. In order to produce an image, it is then necessary ...
  • Zeng, Yi; Albertus, Paul; Klein, Reinhardt; Chaturvedi, Nalin; Kojic, Aleksandar; Bazant, Martin Z.; Christensen, Jake (2013-07)
    Mathematical models of batteries which make use of the intercalation of a species into a solid phase need to solve the corresponding mass transfer problem. Because solving this equation can significantly add to the ...
  • Li, Hojun; Shi, Jiahai; Huang, Nai-Jia; Natarajan, Anirudh; Eng, Jennifer C.; Pishesha, Novalia; Lodish, Harvey F (European Hematology Association (EHA)/Ferrata Storti Foundation, 2016-06)
    The study of isolated primary progenitor cells offers great insight into developmental biology and human disease. In particular, ex vivo culture of isolated primary erythroid progenitor cells replicates the differentiation ...
  • Zhang, Feng; Wagner, Jeffrey C.; Platt, Randall Jeffrey; Goldfless, Stephen J.; Niles, Jacquin (Nature Publishing Group, 2014-08)
    Malaria is a major cause of global morbidity and mortality, and new strategies for treating and preventing this disease are needed. Here we show that the Streptococcus pyogenes Cas9 DNA endonuclease and single guide RNAs ...
  • Karger, David R.; Oh, Sewoong; Shah, Devavrat (Association for Computing Machinery (ACM), 2013-06)
    Crowdsourcing systems like Amazon's Mechanical Turk have emerged as an effective large-scale human-powered platform for performing tasks in domains such as image classification, data entry, recommendation, and proofreading. ...
  • Malik, Wasim Qamar; Truccolo, Wilson; Brown, Emery N.; Hochberg, Leigh R. (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2011-02)
    The Kalman filter is commonly used in neural interface systems to decode neural activity and estimate the desired movement kinematics.We analyze a low-complexity Kalman filter implementation in which the filter gain is ...
  • DeLacy, B. G.; Anquillare, E. L.; Miller, Owen D.; Hsu, Chia Wei; Joannopoulos, John; Johnson, Steven G; Soljacic, Marin (Optical Society of America, 2016-05)
    Subwavelength resonators, ranging from single atoms to metallic nanoparticles, typically exhibit a narrow-bandwidth response to optical excitations. We computationally design and experimentally synthesize tailored distributions ...
  • Sun, Lijun; Axhausen, Kay W.; Lee, Der-Horng; Cebrian, Manuel (Nature Publishing Group, 2014-06)
    Physical contact remains difficult to trace in large metropolitan networks, though it is a key vehicle for the transmission of contagious outbreaks. Co-presence encounters during daily transit use provide us with a city-scale ...
  • Beals, Robert; Brierley, Stephen; Gray, Oliver; Harrow, Aram W.; Kutin, Samuel; Linden, Noah; Shepherd, Dan; Stather, Mark (Royal Society, The, 2013-02)
    We provide algorithms for efficiently moving and addressing quantum memory in parallel. These imply that the standard circuit model can be simulated with a low overhead by a more realistic model of a distributed quantum ...
  • Mu, Beipeng; Chowdhary, Girish; How, Jonathan P (Elsevier, 2014-04)
    In many distributed sensing applications with limited resources, it is likely that only a few agents will have valuable information at any given time. Therefore it is important to ensure that the resources are spent on ...
  • Liao, Shu-Yu; Lee, Myungwoon; Wang, Tuo; Sergeyev, Ivan V.; Hong, Mei (Springer Netherlands, 2016-02)
    Although dynamic nuclear polarization (DNP) has dramatically enhanced solid-state NMR spectral sensitivities of many synthetic materials and some biological macromolecules, recent studies of membrane-protein DNP using ...
  • Fu, Roger Rennan; Hager, Bradford H; Ermakov, Anton; Zuber, Maria (Elsevier, 2014-02)
    The asteroid Vesta is a differentiated planetesimal from the accretion phase of Solar System formation. Although its present-day shape is dominated by a non-hydrostatic fossil equatorial bulge and two large, mostly unrelaxed ...
  • Moix, Jeremy; Wu, Jianlan; Huo, Pengfei; Coker, David; Cao, Jianshu (American Chemical Society (ACS), 2011-11)
    The most recent crystal structure of the Fenna–Matthews–Olson (FMO) protein complex indicates the presence of an additional eighth chromophore, which has been proposed to serve as a link between the chlorosome and the ...
  • Wu, Jianlan; Liu, Fan; Shen, Young; Cao, Jianshu; Silbey, Robert J. (Institute of Physics Publishing, 2010-10)
    Understanding the mechanisms of efficient and robust energy transfer in light-harvesting systems provides new insights for the optimal design of artificial systems. In this paper, we use the Fenna–Matthews–Olson (FMO) ...
