  • 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 ...
  • El-Moselhy, Tarek Ali; Elfadel, Ibrahim (Abe) M.; Daniel, Luca (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2011-01)
    In this paper, we propose a hierarchical algorithm to compute the 3-D capacitances of a large number of topologically different layout configurations that are all assembled from the same basic layout motifs. Our algorithm ...
  • Borodin, Alexei; Olshanski, Grigori (Institute of Mathematical Statistics, 2013-08)
    The Thoma cone is an infinite-dimensional locally compact space, which is closely related to the space of extremal characters of the infinite symmetric group S[subscript ∞]. In another context, the Thoma cone appears as ...
  • Borodin, Alexei; Gorin, Vadim (Springer-Verlag, 2012-03)
    Consider an N-dimensional Markov chain obtained from N one-dimensional random walks by Doob h-transform with the q-Vandermonde determinant. We prove that as N becomes large, these Markov chains converge to an infinite-dimensional ...
  • Berger, Bonnie; Menke, Matt; Cowen, Lenore J. (National Academy of Sciences, 2010-03)
    The recent explosion in newly sequenced bacterial genomes is outpacing the capacity of researchers to try to assign functional annotation to all the new proteins. Hence, computational methods that can help predict structural ...
  • Peyton, Shelly R.; Kalcioglu, Zeynep Ilke; Cohen, Joshua C.; Runkle, Anne P.; Van Vliet, Krystyn J.; Lauffenburger, Douglas A.; Griffith, Linda G. (Wiley Blackwell, 2010-12)
    Design of 3D scaffolds that can facilitate proper survival, proliferation, and differentiation of progenitor cells is a challenge for clinical applications involving large connective tissue defects. Cell migration within ...
  • Banerjee, Abhijit; Duflo, Esther; Ghatak, Maitreesh; Lafortune, Jeanne (American Economic Association, 2013-05)
    This paper analyzes how preferences for a noneconomic characteristic (e.g., caste) can affect equilibrium patterns of matching, and empirically evaluates this in the context of middle-class Indian arranged marriages. We ...
  • Hu, Renyu; Cahoy, Kerri; Zuber, Maria T. (American Geophysical Union (AGU), 2012-07)
    [1] We study the condensation of CO[subscript 2] in Mars' atmosphere using temperature profiles retrieved from radio occultation measurements from Mars Global Surveyor (MGS) as well as the climate sounding instrument onboard ...
  • Fagherazzi, Sergio; Mariotti, Giuilio; Wiberg, Patricia; McGlathery, Karen; Mariotti, Giuilio; Mariotti, Giulio (The Oceanography Society, 2013-09)
    Salt marshes are among the most productive ecosystems on Earth, providing nurseries for fish species and shelter and food for endangered birds. Salt marshes also mitigate the impacts of hurricanes and tsunamis, and sequester ...
  • Kim, Ig-Jae; Song, Injun; Hwang, Jane; Ahn, Sang Chul; Kim, Hyoung-Gon; Ko, Heedong (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2009-12)
    We are currently developing a new tour guide service on mobile phone using augmented reality. Among the components for the service, in-situ annotation is one of the most important components for capturing of lots of personal ...
  • Murphy, Michael T.; Bernstein, Rebecca A.; Burles, Scott M.; Prochaska, J. Xavier; Hennawi, Joseph F.; Williams, Christopher Leigh; West, Andrew A.; Simcoe, Robert A.; Bochanski, John J.; Burgasser, Adam J. (Astronomical Society of the Pacific, 2009-11)
    We introduce a data-reduction package written in Interactive Data Language (IDL) for the Magellan Echellete Spectrograph (MAGE). MAGE is a medium-resolution (R 4100), cross-dispersed, optical spectrograph, with coverage ...
