  • Kovacs, Geza; Miller, Robert C. (Association for Computing Machinery (ACM), 2013-10)
    Foreign-language comics are potentially an enjoyable way to learn foreign languages. However, the difficulty of reading authentic material makes them inaccessible to novice learners. We present the Foreign Manga Reader, a ...
  • Bonstre, Jean-Francois; Campbell, Joseph P., Jr.; Shen, Wade; Campbell, William M.; Schwartz, Reva; Matrouf, Driss (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2009-03)
    Looking at the different points highlighted in this article, we affirm that forensic applications of speaker recognition should still be taken under a necessary need for caution. Disseminating this message remains one of ...
  • Levihn, Martin; Stilman, Mike; Kaelbling, Leslie P.; Lozano-Perez, Tomas (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2013-11)
    We present a hierarchical planning and execution architecture that maintains the computational efficiency of hierarchical decomposition while improving optimality. It provides mechanisms for monitoring the belief state ...
  • Cobb, Alexander R.; Joosten, Hans; Glaser, Paul H.; Chua, Amy F. L.; Gandois, Laure; Kai, Fuu-Ming; Noren, Anders; Salim, Kamariah A.; Su'ut, N. Salihah H.; Harvey, Charles F.; Dommain, Rene (American Geophysical Union (AGU), 2015-04)
    Peatlands of Southeast Asia store large pools of carbon but the mechanisms of peat accumulation in tropical forests remain to be resolved. Patch dynamics and forest disturbance have seldom been considered as drivers that ...
  • Guarente, Leonard Pershing (Elsevier, 2010-01)
    Propagation of a species requires periodic cell renewal to avoid clonal senescence. Liu et al. (2010) now describe a new mechanism of cell renewal in budding yeast, in which damaged protein aggregates are transported out ...
  • Foreword 
    Russell, C. T.; Zuber, Maria (Springer Netherlands, 2013-08)
    In 1992 a small workshop in San Juan Capistrano marked the beginning of an innovation in planetary exploration, the Principal Investigator-led mission. NASA announced the establishment of a continuing “line item” in the ...
  • Huang, David; Fujimoto, James G (Association for Research in Vision and Ophthalmology, 2016-07)
    This special issue commemorates the 25th anniversary of the development of optical coherence tomography (OCT). OCT has had a transformative impact in the field of ophthalmology and vision research, contributing to fundamental ...
  • Leonardi, Christopher Ross (Springer International Publishing, 2016-03)
    It is with great pleasure that I introduce this Special Issue of Computational Particle Mechanics, titled Particle Methods for the Oil and Gas Industry. It brings together 11 original research articles from academics around ...
  • Reising, S. C.; Miller, Eric 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 M.; 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. ...
