  • Leedekerken, Jacques C.; Fallon, Maurice Francis; Leonard, John Joseph (Springer-Verlag, 2010-12)
    This paper presents a novel marine mapping system using an Autonomous Surface Craft (ASC). The platform includes an extensive sensor suite for mapping environments both above and below the water surface. A relatively ...
  • Militino, A. F.; Ugarte, M. D.; Iribas, J.; Lizarraga-Garcia, Enrique (Springer-Verlag, 2013-05)
    Nowadays, GPS receivers are very reliable because of their good accuracy and precision; however, uncertainty is also inherent in geospatial data. Quality of GPS measurements can be influenced by atmospheric disturbances, ...
  • Forget, Gael (American Meteorological Society, 2010-06)
    This paper exploits a new observational atlas for the near-global ocean for the best-observed 3-yr period from December 2003 through November 2006. The atlas consists of mapped observations and derived quantities. Together ...
  • Pipa, Gordon; Chen, Zhe; Neuenschwander, Sergio; Lima, Bruss; Brown, Emery N. (MIT Press, 2012-06)
    The moving bar experiment is a classic paradigm for characterizing the receptive field (RF) properties of neurons in primary visual cortex (V1). Current approaches for analyzing neural spiking activity recorded from these ...
  • Zheng, Haoxuan; Tegmark, Max Erik; Buza, Victor; Dillon, Joshua Shane; Gharibyan, Hrant; Kunz, Eben; Liu, Adrian Chi-Yan; Losh, Jon; Lutomirksi, Andy; Morrison, Scott; Narayanan, Sruthi A.; Perko, Ashley; Rosner, Devon; Sanchez, Nevada; Schutz, Katelin; Tribiano, Shana; Valdez, Michael; Zelko, Ioana; Zheng, Kevin; Ewall-Wice, Aaron; Matejek, Michael; Morgan, Edward; Neben, Abraham; Pan, Qinxuan; Penna, Robert; Su, Meng; Villasenor, Joel; Williams, Christopher Leigh; Yang, Hung-I; Zhu, Yan (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2013-10)
    Mapping our universe in 3D by imaging the redshifted 21 cm line from neutral hydrogen has the potential to overtake the cosmic microwave background as our most powerful cosmological probe, because it can map a much larger ...
  • Menze, Bjoern H.; Ur, Jason A. (National Academy of Sciences, 2012-03)
    The landscapes of the Near East show both the first settlements and the longest trajectories of settlement systems. Mounding is a characteristic property of these settlement sites, resulting from millennia of continuing ...
  • Fan, Yue; Osetskiy, Yuri N.; Yip, Sidney; Yildiz, Bilge (National Academy of Sciences (U.S.), 2013-10)
    Probing the mechanisms of defect–defect interactions at strain rates lower than 10[superscript 6] s[superscript −1] is an unresolved challenge to date to molecular dynamics (MD) techniques. Here we propose an original ...
  • Maznev, Alexei; Wright, O. B.; Matsuda, O. (Institute of Physics Publishing, 2011-01)
    We map the band structure of surface acoustic modes of a periodic array of copper lines embedded in a SiO2 film on a silicon substrate by means of the laser-induced transient grating technique. A detailed map of the lowest ...
  • Chang, Hsun-Hsien; McGeachie, Michael John; Alterovitz, Gil; Ramoni, Marco F. (Springer (Biomed Central Ltd.), 2010-10)
    Background Identification of expression quantitative trait loci (eQTLs) is an emerging area in genomic study. The task requires an integrated analysis of genome-wide single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) data and gene ...
  • Tam, Daniel; Graf von Arnim, Joachim; McKinley, Gareth H.; Anette E. Hosoi (Cambridge University Press, 2009-03)
    We consider a small droplet of water sitting on top of a heated superhydrophobic surface. A toroidal convection pattern develops in which fluid is observed to rise along the surface of the spherical droplet and to accelerate ...
  • Kohane, Isaac; Szolovits, Peter (BMJ Publishing Group on behalf of the American Medical Informatics Association, 2011-04)
    We review the scholarly career of our colleague, Marco Ramoni, who died unexpectedly in the summer of 2010. His work mainly explored the development and application of Bayesian techniques to model clinical, public health, ...
  • Kida, Shinichiro; Yang, Jiayan; Price, James F. (American Meteorological Society, 2009-02)
    Marginal sea overflows and the overlying upper ocean are coupled in the vertical by two distinct mechanisms— by an interfacial mass flux from the upper ocean to the overflow layer that accompanies entrainment and by a ...
  • Rudin, Cynthia; Schapire, Robert E. (MIT Press, 2009-10)
    We study boosting algorithms for learning to rank. We give a general margin-based bound for ranking based on covering numbers for the hypothesis space. Our bound suggests that algorithms that maximize the ranking margin ...
  • Senarathne, P. G. C. Namal; Wijesoma, Wijerupage Sardha; Wee Lee, Kwang; Kalyan, Bharath; M. D. P, Moratuwage; Patrikalakis, Nicholas M.; Hover, Franz S. (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2010-05)
    Development of robust navigation algorithms for marine robotics is a challenge faced by many marine robotists. This paper presents MarineSIM, a marine robot simulation platform which provides an infrastructure to easily ...
  • Zeng, Qinglu; Chisholm, Sallie (Penny) (Elsevier, 2012-01)
    Phosphorus (P) availability, which often limits productivity in marine ecosystems, shapes the P-acquisition gene content of the marine cyanobacteria Prochlorococcus [ [1], [2], [3] and [4]] and its viruses (cyanophages) [ ...
  • Hrvatin, Siniša; Deng, Francis; O'Donnell, Charles William; Gifford, David K.; Melton, Douglas A. (Public Library of Science, 2014-03)
    Transcriptional profiling is a key technique in the study of cell biology that is limited by the availability of reagents to uniquely identify specific cell types and isolate high quality RNA from them. We report a Method ...
  • Ono, Masahiro; Williams, Brian Charles (Association for Computing Machinery, 2010-05)
    This paper proposes Market-based Iterative Risk Allocation (MIRA), a new market-based distributed planning algorithm for multi-agent systems under uncertainty. In large coordination problems, from power grid management ...
  • Asquith, Paul; Au, Andreas S.; Covert, Thomas; Pathak, Parag (Elsevier B.V., 2012-08)
    This paper describes the market for borrowing corporate bonds using a comprehensive data set from a major lender. The cost of borrowing corporate bonds is comparable to the cost of borrowing stock, between 10 and 20 basis ...
  • Hauser, John (Society for Judgment and Decision Making, 2011-07)
    Marketing science seeks to prescribe better marketing strategies (advertising, product development, pricing, etc.). To do so we rely on models of consumer decisions grounded in empirical observations. Field experience ...
  • Bolton, Patrick; Chen, Hui; Wang, Neng (Elsevier B.V., 2013-07)
    The 2008 financial crisis exemplifies significant uncertainties in corporate financing conditions. We develop a unified dynamic q-theoretic framework where firms have both a precautionary-savings motive and a market-timing ...
