(Institute of Physics Publishing, 2011-06)
    We report the discovery of HAT-P-30b, a transiting exoplanet orbiting the V = 10.419 dwarf star GSC 0208-00722. The planet has a period P = 2.810595 [plus-minus] 0.000005 days, transit epoch T[subscript c] = 2455456.46561 ...

(IOP Publishing, 2014-04)
    We report the discovery by the HATNet survey of three new transiting extrasolar planets orbiting moderately bright (V = 13.2, 12.8, and 11.9) stars. The planets have orbital periods of 4.3012, 3.1290, and 4.4631 days, ...
  • Winn, Joshua Nathan; Johnson, John Asher; Albrecht, Simon H.; Howard, Andrew W.; Marcy, Geoffrey W.; Crossfield, Ian J.; Holman, Matthew J. (American Astronomical Society, 2009-10)
    We show that the exoplanet HAT-P-7b has an extremely tilted orbit, with a true angle of at least 86° with respect to its parent star's equatorial plane, and a strong possibility of retrograde motion. We also report evidence ...
  • Zhang, Rong; Delworth, Thomas L.; Sutton, Rowan; Hodson, Daniel L. R.; Dixon, Keith W.; Held, Isaac M.; Kushnir, Yochanan; Ming, Yi; Msadek, Rym; Robson, Jon; Rosati, Anthony J.; Ting, MingFang; Vecchi, Gabriel A.; Marshall, John C. (American Meteorological Society, 2013-04)
    Identifying the prime drivers of the twentieth-century multidecadal variability in the Atlantic Ocean is crucial for predicting how the Atlantic will evolve in the coming decades and the resulting broad impacts on weather ...
  • Adams, Allan; Saremi, Omid; Roberts, Daniel Adam (American Physical Society, 2015-02)
    We study the Hawking-Page transition in a holographic model of field theories with momentum dissipation. We find that the deconfinement temperature strictly decreases as momentum dissipation is increased. For sufficiently ...
  • Porfyriadis, Achilleas P. (American Physical Society, 2009-04)
    The anomaly cancellation method proposed by Wilczek et al. is applied to the general charged rotating black holes in five-dimensional minimal gauged supergravity. Thus Hawking temperature and fluxes are found. The Hawking ...
  • Ishimatsu, Takuto; Leveson, Nancy G.; Thomas, John P.; Katahira, Masafumi; Miyamoto, Yuko; Ujiie, Ryo; Nakao, Haruka; Hoshino, Nobuyuki; Fleming, Cody Harrison (American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics, 2014-02)
    A new hazard analysis technique, called systems-theoretic process analysis, is capable of identifying potential hazardous design flaws, including software and system design errors and unsafe interactions among multiple ...
  • Cheng, Ing-Haw; Milbradt, Konstantin (Oxford University Press, 2011-12)
    We investigate the trade-off between incentive provision and inefficient rollover freezes for a firm financed with short-term debt. First, debt maturity that is too short-term is inefficient, even with incentive provision. ...
  • JnBaptiste, Courtney Kenneil; Michaud, Joelle; Praz, Viviane; James Faresse, Nicole; Tyagi, Shweta; Schutz, Frederic; Herr, Winship (Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory Press, 2013-03)
    In human transcriptional regulation, DNA-sequence-specific factors can associate with intermediaries that orchestrate interactions with a diverse set of chromatin-modifying enzymes. One such intermediary is HCFC1 (also ...
  • Park, Boyoun; Spooner, Eric; Houser, Brandy L.; Strominger, Jack L.; Ploegh, Hidde (Rockefeller University Press, The, 2010-08)
    Human cytomegalovirus (HCMV) encodes an endoplasmic reticulum (ER)-resident transmembrane glycoprotein, US10, expressed early in the replicative cycle of HCMV as part of the same cluster that encodes the known immunoevasins ...
  • Sanchez-Gaytan, Brenda L.; Fay, Francois; Lobatto, Mark E.; Tang, Jun; Ouimet, Mireille; Kim, YongTae; van der Staay, Susanne E. M.; van Rijs, Sarian M.; Priem, Bram; Zhang, Liangfang; Fisher, Edward A.; Moore, Kathryn J.; Langer, Robert; Fayad, Zahi A.; Mulder, Willem J. M. (American Chemical Society (ACS), 2015-02)
    High-density lipoprotein (HDL) is a natural nanoparticle that exhibits an intrinsic affinity for atherosclerotic plaque macrophages. Its natural targeting capability as well as the option to incorporate lipophilic payloads, ...
  • Wampler, Charles Wilson; Gao, Dalong (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2009-12)
    In the design of robotic systems that safely interact with people, it is useful to have validated criteria for measuring injury risks. To this end, some researchers have advocated the use of metrics developed for assessing ...
  • Xu, Guoqiang; Demkowicz, Michael J. (American Physical Society, 2013-10)
    We present a new mechanism—discovered using molecular dynamics simulations—that leads to complete healing of nanocracks. This mechanism relies on the generation of crystal defects known as disclinations by migrating grain ...
  • Agha-mohammadi, Ali-akbar; Ure, Nazim Kemal; How, Jonathan P.; Vian, John (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2014-09)
    In persistent missions, taking system’s health and capability degradation into account is an essential factor to predict and avoid failures. The state space in health-aware planning problems is often a mixture of continuous ...
  • Venti, Steven; Wise, David A.; Poterba, James M. (University of Chicago Press, The, 2013-12)
    We explore the relationship between education and the evolution of wealth after retirement. Asset growth following retirement depends in part on health capital and financial capital accumulated prior to retirement, which ...
  • Dryden, Emily B.; Guillemin, Victor W.; Sena-Dias, Rosa Isabel (American Mathematical Society, 2011-10)
    Let M[superscript 2n] be a symplectic toric manifold with a fixed T[superscript n]-action and with a toric Kähler metric g. Abreu (2003) asked whether the spectrum of the Laplace operator Δ[subscript g] on C∞ (M) determines ...
