  • Seager, Sara (IOP Publishing, 2011-02)
    NASA's Kepler Mission uses transit photometry to determine the frequency of Earth-size planets in or near the habitable zone of Sun-like stars. The mission reached a milestone toward meeting that goal: the discovery of its ...
  • Keten, Sinan; Buehler, Markus J. (American Physical Society, 2009-03)
    A Reply to the Comment by Dmitrii E. Makarov.
  • Noguchi, Yasushi; Nishikata, Natsumi; Shikata, Nahoko; Kimura, Yoshiko; Aleman, Jose O.; Young, Jamey D.; Koyama, Naoto; Kelleher, Joanne Keene; Takahashi, Michio; Stephanopoulos, Gregory (Public Library of Science, 2010-08)
    Background Although dietary ketogenic essential amino acid (KAA) content modifies accumulation of hepatic lipids, the molecular interactions between KAAs and lipid metabolism are yet to be fully elucidated. Methodolo ...
  • Little, Danny Greg; Miller, Robert C. (Springer Netherlands, 2008-10)
    Keyword programming is a novel technique for reducing the need to remember details of programming language syntax and APIs, by translating a small number of unordered keywords provided by the user into a valid expression. ...
  • Kronheimer, P. B.; Mrowka, Tomasz S. (Springer-Verlag, 2011-11)
    We prove that a knot is the unknot if and only if its reduced Khovanov cohomology has rank 1. The proof has two steps. We show first that there is a spectral sequence beginning with the reduced Khovanov cohomology and ...
  • Samuels, Richard J. (Lynne Rienner Publishers, 2010-10)
    Introduction: History is filled with political abductions, incidents in which individuals are kidnapped and held hostage by hostile groups or states to gain leverage or legitimacy for their cause.1 Such episodes have been ...
  • Boning, Peggy; Dubowsky, Steven (SAGE Publications, 2010-08)
    Autonomous space robots will be required for such future missions as the construction of large space structures and repairing disabled satellites. These robots will need to be precisely controlled. However, factors such ...
  • Slocum, Alexander H. (Elsevier B.V., 2010-04)
    From the humble three-legged milking stool to a SEMI standard wafer pod location to numerous sub-micron fixturing applications in instruments and machines, exactly constrained mechanisms provide precision, robustness, and ...
  • Poon, Chi-Sang; Anton, Mihai; McRae, Gregory J.; Lee, Chuang-Chung J. (Springer Netherlands, 2009-06)
    Short-term facilitation and depression refer to the increase and decrease of synaptic strength under repetitive stimuli within a timescale of milliseconds to seconds. This phenomenon has been attributed to primarily ...
  • Ruan, Shiyun; Schuh, Christopher A. (American Institute of Physics (AIP), 2010-04)
    A full diffusion kinetic Monte Carlo algorithm is used to model nanocrystalline film deposition, and study the mechanisms of grain nucleation and microstructure formation in such films. The major finding of this work is ...
  • Homer, Eric R.; Rodney, David; Schuh, Christopher A. (American Physical Society, 2010-02)
    Shear transformation zone (STZ) dynamics simulations, which are based on the kinetic Monte Carlo algorithm, are used to model the mechanical response of amorphous metals and provide insight into the collective aspects of ...
  • Minnihan, Ellen Catherine; Seyedsayamdost, Mohammad R.; Uhlin, Ulla; Stubbe, JoAnne (American Chemical Society (ACS), 2011-05)
    Escherichia coli ribonucleotide reductase is an α2β2 complex and catalyzes the conversion of nucleoside 5′-diphosphates (NDPs) to 2′-deoxynucleotides (dNDPs). The reaction is initiated by the transient oxidation of an ...
  • Patacchini, Leonardo; Hutchinson, Ian H. (American Physical Society, 2009-09)
    The kinetic equation governing a strongly magnetized transverse plasma flow past a convex ion-collecting object is solved numerically for arbitrary ion to electron temperature ratio τ. The approximation of isothermal ions ...
  • Ng, Jonathan; Le, Ari; Daughton, W.; Chen, L.-J. (American Physical Society, 2011-02)
    Strong electron pressure anisotropy has been observed upstream of electron diffusion regions during reconnection in Earth’s magnetotail and kinetic simulations. For collisionless antiparallel reconnection, we find that the ...
  • Kominis, Y.; Hizanidis, K.; Ram, Abhay K. (American Physical Society, 2010-06)
    The evolution of a charged particle distribution function under the influence of coherent electromagnetic waves in a plasma is determined from kinetic theory. For coherent waves, the dynamical phase space of particles is ...
  • Drakonakis, Vassilis M.; Seferis, James C.; Wardle, Brian L.; Nam, Jae-Do; Papanicolaou, George C.; Doumanidis, Charalambos C. (Elsevier B.V., 2010-01)
    Kinetic viscoelasticity modeling has been successfully utilized to describe phenomena during cure of thermoset based carbon fiber reinforced matrices. The basic difference from classic viscoelasticity is that the fundamental ...
  • Thorpe, Peter H.; Bruno, Joanne H.; Rothstein, Rodney (National Academy of Sciences, 2009-04)
    Asymmetric cell division is of fundamental importance in biology as it allows for the establishment of separate cell lineages during the development of multicellular organisms. Although microbial systems, including the ...
  • Arthanari, Haribabu; Boeszoermenyi, Andras; Dashkevich, Natalia M.; Wilson-Kubalek, Elizabeth M.; Monnier, Nilah; Markus, Michelle; Oberer, Monika; Milligan, Ron A.; Bathe, Mark; Wagner, Gerhard; Grishchuk, Ekaterina L.; Schmidt, Jens Christopher; Cheeseman, Iain McPherson (Elsevier, 2012-10)
    To ensure equal chromosome segregation during mitosis, the macromolecular kinetochore must remain attached to depolymerizing microtubules, which drive chromosome movements. How kinetochores associate with depolymerizing ...
  • Cheeseman, Iain M.; Kern, David Matthew; Cheeseman, Iain McPherson (Elsevier B.V., 2012-10)
    Despite the identification of multiple kinetochore proteins, their structure and organization has remained unclear. New work uses electron microscopy to visualize isolated budding yeast kinetochore particles and reveal the ...
  • Kinnan, Cynthia; Townsend, Robert (American Economic Association, 2012-05)
    Kinship networks are beneficial for smoothing consumption and investment, but the channels are not well understood. We study the financing devices used for consumption and investment by Thai households. Households that are ...
