  • Taylor, Joshua A.; Gilberston, Eric; Chalfant, Julie; Hover, Franz S. (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2011-04)
    We apply relaxation procedures for polynomial optimization problems to shipboard distribution system design, and obtain new convex formulations for the AC case.
  • Aaronson, Scott (Royal Society, The, 2011-12)
    One of the crown jewels of complexity theory is Valiant's theorem that computing the permanent of an n×n matrix is #P-hard. Here we show that, by using the model of linear-optical quantum computing—and in particular, a ...
  • Baran, Thomas A.; Wei, Dennis; Oppenheim, Alan V. (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2010-03)
    In designing discrete-time filters, the length of the impulse response is often used as an indication of computational cost. In systems where the complexity is dominated by arithmetic operations, the number of nonzero ...
  • Demaine, Erik D.; Aloupis, Greg; Collette, Sébastien; Damian, Mirela; Langerman, Stefan; O’Rourke, Joseph; Ramaswami, Suneeta; Wuhrer, Stefanie (Elsevier, 2009-08)
    In this paper we propose a novel algorithm that, given a source robot S and a target robot T , reconfigures S into T. Both S and T are robots composed of n atoms arranged in 2 × 2 × 2 meta-modules. The reconfiguration ...
  • Taylor, Joshua A.; Hover, Franz S. (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2011-05)
    We apply a linear relaxation procedure for polynomial optimization problems to transmission system planning. The approach recovers and improves upon existing linear models based on the DC approximation. We then consider ...
  • Golyk, Vladyslav A.; Kardar, Mehran; Kruger, Matthias (American Physical Society, 2013-10)
    Near field radiative heat transfer and vacuum friction are just two instances of topics of technological and fundamental interest studied via the formalism of fluctuational electrodynamics. From the perspective of experiment ...
  • Liang, Xiangdong; Deng, D. S.; Nave, J. C.; Johnson, Steven G. (Cambridge University Press, 2011-08)
    Motivated by complex multi-fluid geometries currently being explored in fibre-device manufacturing, we study capillary instabilities in concentric cylindrical flows of $N$ fluids with arbitrary viscosities, thicknesses, ...
  • Abbe, Emmanuel A.; Zheng, Lizhong (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers / IEEE Information Theory Society, 2010-11)
    Over discrete memoryless channels (DMC), linear decoders (maximizing additive metrics) afford several nice properties. In particular, if suitable encoders are employed, the use of decoding algorithms with manageable ...
  • Levin, Anat; Durand, Fredo (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2010-08)
    Acquiring and representing the 4D space of rays in the world (the light field) is important for many computer vision and graphics applications. Yet, light field acquisition is costly due to their high dimensionality. ...
  • Dong, Andy; Sarkar, Somwrita; Honda, Tomonori; Yang, Maria (Springer-Verlag, 2013-11)
    This paper addresses the problem of describing the decision-making process of a committee of engineers based upon their verbalized linguistic appraisals of alternatives. First, we show a way to model an individual’s ...
  • Byrne, Michael Patrick; O'Gorman, Paul Ambrose (American Geophysical Union (AGU), 2013-10)
    Simulations of warming climates with coupled climate models exhibit strong land-ocean contrasts in changes in surface temperature and relative humidity, but little land-ocean contrast in changes in equivalent potential ...
  • Fender, Rob; Lee, Julia C.; Ponti, Gabriele; Tzioumis, Anastasios K.; Edwards, Philip G.; Broderick, Jess W.; Neilsen, Joey; Coriat, Mickael (IOP Publishing, 2014-03)
    Recently, Diaz Trigo et al. reported an XMM-Newton detection of relativistically Doppler-shifted emission lines associated with steep-spectrum radio emission in the stellar-mass black hole candidate 4U 1630-47 during its ...
  • Sojoudi, Hossein; McKinley, Gareth H.; Gleason, Karen K. (Royal Society of Chemistry, 2014-10)
    Thin films of bilayer poly(divinyl benzene) p(DVB)/poly(perfluorodecylacrylate) (p-PFDA) are synthesized via iCVD on steel and silicon substrates. Nanomechanical measurements reveal that the elastic modulus and hardness ...
  • Gifford, Scott Michael; Sharma, Shalabh; Moran, Mary Ann (Frontiers Research Foundation, 2014-04)
    For bacterial communities containing hundreds to thousands of distinct populations, connecting functional processes and environmental dynamics at high taxonomic resolution has remained challenging. Here we use the expression ...
  • Kim, Dohoon; Tsai, Li-Huei (New York Academy of Sciences, 2009-08)
    Aberrant cell cycle activity and DNA damage have been observed in neurons in association with various neurodegenerative conditions. While there is strong evidence for a causative role for these events in neurotoxicity, it ...
  • Jin, Bilian; Ernst, Jason; Tiedemann, Rochelle L.; Xu, Hongyan; Sureshchandra, Suhas; Kellis, Manolis; Dalton, Stephen; Liu, Chen; Choi, Jeong-Hyeon; Robertson, Keith D. (Elsevier, 2012-11)
    DNA methylation, mediated by the combined action of three DNA methyltransferases (DNMT1, DNMT3A, and DNMT3B), is essential for mammalian development and is a major contributor to cellular transformation. To elucidate how ...
  • Bomblies, Arne; Laminou, Ibrahim M; Duchemin, Jean-Bernard; Yamana, Teresa K.; Eltahir, Elfatih A. B. (BioMed Central Ltd, 2013-08)
    Background: Individuals continuously exposed to malaria gradually acquire immunity that protects from severe disease and high levels of parasitization. Acquired immunity has been incorporated into numerous models of malaria ...
  • Moxley, Joel F.; Jewett, Michael C.; Antoniewicz, Maciek R.; Villas-Boas, Silas G.; Alper, Hal; Wheeler, Robert T.; Tong, Lily V.; Hinnebusch, Alan G.; Ideker, Trey; Nielsen, Jens; Stephanopoulos, Gregory (National Academy of Sciences, 2009-04)
    Genome sequencing dramatically increased our ability to understand cellular response to perturbation. Integrating system-wide measurements such as gene expression with networks of protein–protein interactions and transcription ...
  • Huang, Shao-shan Carol; Clarke, David C.; Gosline, Sara Jane Calafell; Labadorf, Adam; Chouinard, Candace R.; Gordon, William; Lauffenburger, Douglas A.; Fraenkel, Ernest (Public Library of Science, 2013-02)
    Cellular signal transduction generally involves cascades of post-translational protein modifications that rapidly catalyze changes in protein-DNA interactions and gene expression. High-throughput measurements are improving ...
  • Lambrecht, Bart M.; Myers, Stewart C. (John Wiley & Sons, Inc, 2012-10)
    We develop a dynamic agency model in which payout, investment, and financing decisions are made by managers who attempt to maximize the rents they take from the firm, subject to a capital market constraint. Managers smooth ...
