  • Reising, S. C.; Miller, E. L.; Kerekes, J. P.; Entekhabi, Dara (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2009-10)
    The 29 papers in this special issue were originally presented at the 2008 International Geoscience and Remote Sensing Symposium (IGARSS'08), held from July 6 to 11 in Boston, MA.
  • Scimone, M. Lucila; Lapan, Sylvain William; Reddien, Peter (Public Library of Science, 2014-01)
    Planarian regeneration requires positional information to specify the identity of tissues to be replaced as well as pluripotent neoblasts capable of differentiating into new cell types. We found that wounding elicits rapid ...
  • Heim, Irene R. (Dept. of Linguistics, South College, University of Massachusetts, 2007-10)
    Introduction: Tanya Reinhart pioneered and developed a new and very influential approach to the syntax and semantics of anaphora. It originated in Reinhart (1983a, b) and underwent various later modifications, e.g., ...
  • Robinson, Julia M.; Sakai, Takeo; Okano, Katsuhiko; Kitawaki, Takafumi; Danheiser, Rick Lane (American Chemical Society, 2010-07)
    A formal, metal-free, [2 + 2 + 2] cycloaddition strategy is described based on a cascade of two pericyclic processes. The first step involves an intramolecular propargylic ene reaction of a 1,6-diyne to generate a vinylallene, ...
  • Duperret, Jeffrey M.; Hafner, Michael R.; Del Vecchio, Domitilla (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2010-10)
    In this paper, we show how to design a provably safe robotic roundabout system comprised of three vehicles. This is accomplished by combining two-vehicle collision avoidance primitives, which are each computationally light ...
  • Gibbons, Robert S.; Kaplan, Robert S. (American Economic Association, 2015-05)
    We extend traditional agency theory by exploring the roles for formal measures when managerial behavior is not governed by rules, formulas, or contracts. Part I describes relational incentive contracts with informal weights ...
  • Liang, Li; Stubbe, JoAnne; Tommos, Cecilia; Ravichandran, Kanchana (American Chemical Society (ACS), 2013-11)
    The reversible Y–O•/Y–OH redox properties of the α[subscript 3]Y model protein allow access to the electrochemical and thermodynamic properties of 3,5-difluorotyrosine. The unnatural amino acid has been incorporated at ...
  • Braibant, Thomas; Chlipala, Adam (Springer-Verlag, 2013-07)
    We report on the implementation of a certified compiler for a high-level hardware description language (HDL) called Fe-Si (FEatherweight SynthesIs). Fe-Si is a simplified version of Bluespec, an HDL based on a notion of ...
  • Sakar, Mahmut Selman; Neal, Devin Michael; Boudou, Thomas; Borochin, Michael A.; Li, Yinqing; Weiss, Ron; Kamm, Roger Dale; Chen, Christopher S.; Asada, Harry (Royal Society of Chemistry, 2012-12)
    Densely arrayed skeletal myotubes are activated individually and as a group using precise optical stimulation with high spatiotemporal resolution. Skeletal muscle myoblasts are genetically encoded to express a light-activated ...
  • Delgado-Aparicio, Luis; Sugiyama, Linda E.; Granetz, Robert S.; Gates, D. A.; Rice, John E.; Reinke, Matthew Logan; Bitter, M.; Fredrickson, E.; Gao, Chi; Greenwald, Martin J.; Hill, K.; Hubbard, Amanda E.; Hughes, Jerry W.; Pablant, N.; Scott, S.; Wilson, R.; Marmar, Earl S.; Podpaly, Y.; Wolfe, S.; Wukitch, Stephen James (American Physical Society, 2013-02)
    New observations of the formation and dynamics of long-lived impurity-induced helical “snake” modes in tokamak plasmas have recently been carried out on Alcator C-Mod. The snakes form as an asymmetry in the impurity ion ...
  • Haselwandter, Christoph A.; Calamai, Martino; Kardar, Mehran; Triller, Antoine; Azeredo da Silveira, Rava (American Physical Society, 2011-06)
    Neurotransmitter receptor molecules, concentrated in postsynaptic domains along with scaffold and a number of other molecules, are key regulators of signal transmission across synapses. Combining experiment and theory, we ...
  • Bodenheimer, Peter; Lissauer, Jack J.; Seager, Sara; Rogers, Leslie Anne (IOP Publishing, 2011-08)
    Kepler has found hundreds of Neptune-size (2-6 R [subscript ⊕]) planet candidates within 0.5 AU of their stars. The nature of the vast majority of these planets is not known because their masses have not been measured. ...
  • Jain, Anubhav; Hautier, Geoffroy; Ong, Shyue Ping; Moore, Charles Jacob; Fischer, Christopher C.; Persson, Kristin A.; Ceder, Gerbrand (American Physical Society, 2011-07)
    Standard approximations to the density functional theory exchange-correlation functional have been extraordinary successful, but calculating formation enthalpies of reactions involving compounds with both localized and ...
  • Kolluri, Kedarnath; Demkowicz, Michael J. (American Physical Society, 2012-05)
    Atomistic simulations are used to study the formation, migration, and clustering of delocalized vacancies and interstitials at a model fcc-bcc semicoherent interface formed by adjacent layers of Cu and Nb. These defects ...
  • Egedal-Pedersen, Jan; Daughton, W.; Drake, James; Katz, Noam Karasov; Le, A. (American Institute of Physics (AIP), 2009-05)
    Magnetic reconnection near the surface of the sun and in the Earth’s magnetotail is associated with the production of highly energetic electrons. Direct acceleration in the reconnection electric field has been proposed as ...
  • Han, Yong; Unal, Baris; Evans, J. W. (American Physical Society, 2012-05)
    The formation of a new type of ordered 2D Ni3Al overlayer by low-temperature codeposition on NiAl(110) is demonstrated by kinetic Monte Carlo simulation of a multisite atomistic lattice-gas model with a precise treatment ...
  • Watson, Donald A.; Su, Mingjuan; Teverovskiy, Georgiy; Zhang, Yong; Garcia-Fortanet, Jorge; Kinzel, Tom; Buchwald, Stephen Leffler (American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS), 2009-08)
    Despite increasing pharmaceutical importance, fluorinated aromatic organic molecules remain difficult to synthesize. Present methods require either harsh reaction conditions or highly specialized reagents, making the ...
  • Bhat, Pardeep P.; Appathurai, Santosh; Harris, Michael T.; Pasquali, Matteo; McKinley, Gareth H.; Basaran, Osman A. (Nature Publishing Group, 2010-06)
    Break-up of viscoelastic filaments is pervasive in both nature and technology. If a filament is formed by placing a drop of saliva between a thumb and forefinger and is stretched, the filament’s morphology close to break-up ...
  • Schlichting, Hilke (IOP Publishing, 2014-10)
    Recent observations by the Kepler space telescope have led to the discovery of more than 4000 exoplanet candidates consisting of many systems with Earth- to Neptune-sized objects that reside well inside the orbit of Mercury ...
