  • Schneider, Robert J.; Perrin, Douglas P.; Vasilye, Nikolay V.; Marx, Gerald R.; Nido, Pedro J. del; Howe, Robert D. (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2010-08)
    The shape of the mitral valve annulus is used in diagnostic and modeling applications, yet methods to accurately and reproducibly delineate the annulus are limited. This paper presents a mitral annulus segmentation algorithm ...
  • Bosecker, C. J.; Krebs, Hermano Igo (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2009-08)
    The ability to walk is important for independent living and when this capacity is affected by neurological injury, gait therapy is the traditional approach to re-train the nervous system. The importance of this problem is ...
  • Long, Phillip D.; Abelson, Harold (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2008-06)
    This paper discusses the institutional framework and the strategic decisions the led the launch of several major major educational technology initiatives at MIT between 1999 and 2003. It describes how MIT’s central ...
  • Clare, Andrew S; Cummings, M. L.; Macbeth, Jamie C.; Clare, Andrew S. (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2012-06)
    Advances in autonomy have made it possible to invert the typical operator-to-unmanned vehicle ratio so that a single operator can now control multiple heterogeneous Unmanned Vehicles (UVs). Real-time scheduling and task ...
  • Shuckburgh, Emily; Maze, Guillaume; Ferreira, David; Marshall, John C.; Jones, Helen; Hill, Christopher N. (American Meteorological Society, 2011-01)
    The modulation of air–sea heat fluxes by geostrophic eddies due to the stirring of temperature at the sea surface is discussed and quantified. It is argued that the damping of eddy temperature variance by such air–sea ...
  • Ajoy, Ashok; Cappellaro, Paola (American Physical Society, 2012-04)
    Quantum spin networks can be used to transport information between separated registers in a quantum-information processor. To find a practical implementation, the strict requirements of ideal models for perfect state ...
  • Nagy, Kevin David; Shen, Bo; Jamison, Timothy F.; Jensen, Klavs F. (American Chemical Society (ACS), 2012-01)
    Continuous flow chemistry is being used increasingly; however, without detailed knowledge of reaction engineering, it can be difficult to judge whether dispersion and mixing are important factors on reaction outcome. ...
  • Plotnik, Aaron M.; Shaw, William; Haslem, Brent; Ferguson, Dean; Marchant, David; Bird, Alan; Peterson, James; Greenman, Mark; Burk, Karl; Ip, Katharine; Brown, Steven; Dixon, Deon; Welsh, Dan; Kalscheur, Micah; Margulis, Michael; Albritton, Jon; Pancholi, Kajal; Sisko, Bryan; Williams, Jason; Scott, Hansen; Tansock, Joseph (The International Society for Optical Engineering, 2009-04)
    The Multiple Kill Vehicle (MKV) system, which is being developed by the US Missile Defense Agency (MDA), is a midcourse payload that includes a carrier vehicle and a number of small kill vehicles. During the mission, the ...
  • McKay, Ian (ASME International, 2012-11)
    By combining the aeroelastic and vortex-forced flutter modes of a thin plastic strip, its oscillation frequency can be confined to scale monotonically with fluid velocity. This principle has been used to produce a low-cost, ...
  • Wang, Chenbo; Haeffner, Fredrik; Hoveyda, Amir H.; Schrock, Richard Royce (Wiley Blackwell, 2013-01)
    Olefin metathesis catalysts for controlling the formation of trisubstituted macrocyclic Z alkenes have been developed. The most effective complexes are Mo alkylidenes with a pentafluorophenylimido group and two large ...
  • Tappan, Jacqueline; Mikkelsen, Christine; Driediger, Ken; Cummings, M. L. (Association for Computing Machinery (ACM), 2011-08)
    This research, a collaboration between MIT and ABB/Ventyx, is focused on the development of a mobile interface for field workers in power repair settings and field service delivery. A Human Systems Engineering (HSE) approach ...
  • Wu, Eugene; Balakrishnan, Hari; Cheung, Alvin K.; Sivalingam, Lenin Ravindranth; Madden, Samuel R. (Association for Computing Machinery (ACM), 2013-07)
    Smart-phone applications ("apps") run across a wide range of environmental conditions, locations, and hardware platforms. They are often subject to an array of interactions that are hard or impossible for developers to ...
  • Reben, Alexander James; Paradiso, Joseph A. (Association for Computing Machinery (ACM), 2011)
    Documentaries are typically captured in a very structured way, using teams to film and interview people. We developed an autonomous method for capturing structured cinéma vérité style documentaries through an interactive ...
  • Johansson, M.; Rivera, C.; de Foy, B.; Lei, Wenfang; Song, J.; Zhang, Y.; Galle, B.; Molina, Luisa Tan (European Geosciences Union / Copernicus, 2009-08)
    We here present the results from mobile measurements using two ground-based zenith viewing Differential Optical Absorption Spectroscopy (DOAS) instruments. The measurement was performed in a cross-section of the plume from ...
  • Quercia, Daniele; Di Lorenzo, Giusy; Calabrese, Francesco; Ratti, Carlo (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2011-04)
    Television and newspapers sit at the top of many agency marketing plans, while outdoor advertising stays at the bottom. The reason for this is that it’s difficult to account for who views a billboard, so there is no way ...
  • Xia, Ling; del Alamo, Jesus A. (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2010-05)
    As in Si CMOS, the incorporation of mechanical strain offers the possibility of improving the performance of III-V field effect transistors (FETs). Quantifying its potential and providing fundamental understanding of the ...
  • Karumanchi, Sisir; Iagnemma, Karl; Scheding, Steve; Karumanchi, Sisir, B (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2013-05)
    This paper addresses the problem of ensuring mobile robot motion safety when reacting to soft and hard hazards in a static environment. The work is aimed at off-road navigation for mobile ground robots where soft hazards ...
  • Hackl, Martin; Nissenbaum, Jon (Springer-Verlag, 2011-10)
    This squib presents two puzzles related to an ambiguity found in for-infinitival relative clauses (FIRs). FIRs invariably receive a modal interpretation even in the absence of any overt modal verb. The modal interpretation ...
  • Murphy, E.; Ghisalberti, M.; Nepf, Heidi (American Geophysical Union, 2007-05)
    Vegetation is ubiquitous in rivers, estuaries, and wetlands, strongly influencing water conveyance and mass transport. The plant canopy affects mean and turbulent flow structure, and thus both advection and dispersion. ...
  • Zhang, Yong; Liu, Tao; Meyer, Clifford A; Eeckhoute, Jerome; Johnson, David S; Nussbaum, Chad; Myers, Richard M; Brown, Myles; Li, Wei; Liu, Xiaole S; Bernstein, Bradley E. (BioMed Central Ltd, 2008-09)
    We present Model-based Analysis of ChIP-Seq data, MACS, which analyzes data generated by short read sequencers such as Solexa's Genome Analyzer. MACS empirically models the shift size of ChIP-Seq tags, and uses it to improve ...
