  • Buscarnera, Giuseppe; Whittle, Andrew (American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE), 2013-02)
    This paper examines the influence of the initial state of sands on the potential for undrained instability. The main goal is to illustrate how advanced constitutive modeling of sand behavior can be used to evaluate the ...
  • Ghattas, O.; Bui-Thanh, Tan; Willcox, Karen E. (Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics, 2008-10)
    A model-constrained adaptive sampling methodology is proposed for the reduction of large-scale systems with high-dimensional parametric input spaces. Our model reduction method uses a reduced basis approach, which requires ...
  • Treleaven, Kyle; Pavone, Marco; Frazzoli, Emilio (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2012-12)
    One of the most common combinatorial problems in logistics and transportation-after the Traveling Salesman Problem-is the Stacker Crane Problem (SCP), where commodities or customers are associated each with a pickup location ...
  • Benner, Steven A.; Bains, William; Seager, Sara (Mary Ann Liebert, 2013-05)
    Of all the conflicts possible within cross-disciplinary studies, none are more confounding than those that arise from different standards that different disciplines require for "proof." Here, "proof" is not used as ...
  • Bertsimas, Dimitris J.; Doan, Xuan Vinh; Natarajan, Karthik; Teo, Chung-Piaw (Institute for Operations Research and the Management Sciences, 2010-08)
    We propose a semidefinite optimization (SDP) model for the class of minimax two-stage stochastic linear optimization problems with risk aversion. The distribution of second-stage random variables belongs to a set of ...
  • Hagelstein, Peter L.; Chaudhary, Irfan (American Chemical Society (ACS), 2008-08)
    Observations of excess heat in the absence of commensurate energetic charged particles challenges local energy and momentum conservation, a foundation of nuclear physics. We have explored models based on excitation transfer, ...
  • Yildiz, Muhamet; Pokladnikova, Vlasta (Elsevier, 2008-03)
    It is a common fear in many countries that ideological parties will come to power through elections but will implement extreme policies. Many countries cope with this problem by overriding the election results when such ...
  • Idei, H.; Sharpiro, M. A.; Temkin, Richard J.; Shimozuma, T.; Kubo, S. (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2009-11)
    The fields radiated from the waveguide were used to analyze propagating mode content in an oversized circular corrugated waveguide. The radiated fields were calculated by the Kirchhoff integral in the paraxial approximation. ...
  • Bergshoeff, Eric A.; Hohm, Olaf; Rossell, Jan; Townsend, Paul K. (American Physical Society, 2011-05)
    The physical modes of a recently proposed D-dimensional ‘‘critical gravity’’, linearized about its anti-de Sitter vacuum, are investigated. All ‘‘log mode’’ solutions, which we categorize as ‘‘spin-2’’ or ‘‘Proca’’, arise ...
  • McCants, Anne E. C. (2010-01)
    As the diversity of essay themes in this volume demonstrates so vividly, the contribution of Jan de Vries’ scholarship to the study of economic history has been distinguished not only by its exceptional creativity and ...
  • Parker, R.; Bonoli, Paul T.; Meneghini, Orso-Maria Corneli; Porkolab, Miklos; Schmidt, Andrea Elizabeth; Shiraiwa, Shunichi; Wallace, Gregory Marriner; Wilson, J. R.; Hubbard, Amanda E.; Hughes, Jerry W.; Ko, J. S.; McDermott, R. M.; Reinke, Matthew Logan; Rice, John E.; Scott, S. (American Institute of Physics, 2009-11)
    Recent results from the lower hybrid current drive experiments on Alcator C-Mod are presented. These include i) MSE measurements of broadened LHCD current profiles; ii) development of counter rotation comparable to the ...
  • Julian, Brian John (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2009-05)
    A kernel-based recursive least-squares algorithm that implements a fixed size ldquosliding-windowrdquo technique has been recently proposed for fast adaptive nonlinear filtering applications. We propose a methodology of ...
  • Wang, Harris H.; Vonner, Ashley J.; Church, George M.; Xu, George Jing; Church, George M. (Oxford University Press (OUP), 2011-05)
    Genome engineering using single-stranded oligonucleotides is an efficient method for generating small chromosomal and episomal modifications in a variety of host organisms. The efficiency of this allelic replacement strategy ...
  • Donmez, Birsen; Cummings, M. L.; Graham, Hudson D.; Brzezinski, Amy S. (Association for Computing Machinery (ACM), 2010-09)
    Unmanned vehicle (UV) displays are often the only information link between operators and vehicles, so their design is critical to mission success. However, there is currently no standardized methodology for operators to ...
  • Mitha, Alim P.; Ahmad, Mohamed S.; Cohen, Sarah J.; Lieberman, Janet S.; Udengaard, Martin R.; Slocum, Alexander H.; Coumans, Jean-Valery C. E. (American Society of Mechanical Engineers, 2010-03)
    Use of the Kerrison rongeur for bone removal in spinal surgery is associated with dural tears and cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) leaks. We report a modification of the Kerrison rongeur footplate designed to reduce the risk of ...
  • Khosla, Aditya; Bainbridge, Wilma A.; Torralba, Antonio; Oliva, Aude (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2013-12)
    Contemporary life bombards us with many new images of faces every day, which poses non-trivial constraints on human memory. The vast majority of face photographs are intended to be remembered, either because of personal ...
  • Hipp, Katharina; Galani, Kyriakitsa; Batisse, Claire; Prinz, Simone; Bottcher, Bettina (Oxford University Press (OUP), 2011-12)
    Ribonuclease P (RNase P) and RNase MRP are closely related ribonucleoprotein enzymes, which process RNA substrates including tRNA precursors for RNase P and 5.8 S rRNA precursors, as well as some mRNAs, for RNase MRP. The ...
  • Gyorgy, Andras; Del Vecchio, Domitilla (Public Library of Science, 2014-03)
    Predicting the dynamic behavior of a large network from that of the composing modules is a central problem in systems and synthetic biology. Yet, this predictive ability is still largely missing because modules display ...
  • Temme, Karsten; Hill, Rena; Segall-Shapiro, Thomas Hale; Moser, Felix; Voigt, Christopher A. (Oxford University Press (OUP), 2012-05)
    Synthetic genetic sensors and circuits enable programmable control over the timing and conditions of gene expression. They are being increasingly incorporated into the control of complex, multigene pathways and cellular ...
  • Miller, Miles Aaron; Hafner, Marc; Sontag, Eduardo; Davidsohn, Noah Justin; Subramanian, Sairam; Purnick, Priscilla E. M.; Lauffenburger, Douglas A.; Weiss, Ron (Public Library of Science, 2012-07)
    Synthetic biology efforts have largely focused on small engineered gene networks, yet understanding how to integrate multiple synthetic modules and interface them with endogenous pathways remains a challenge. Here we present ...
