  • Fraser, Cameron S.; Bertuccelli, Luca F.; Choi, Han-Lim; How, Jonathan P. (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2010-07)
    This paper addresses the problem of information consensus in a team of networked agents with uncertain local estimates described by parameterized distributions in the exponential family. In particular, the method utilizes ...
  • Pacula, Maciej; Ansel, Jason Andrew; Amarasinghe, Saman P.; O'Reilly, Una-May (Springer Berlin / Heidelberg, 2012-03)
    We are using bandit-based adaptive operator selection while autotuning parallel computer programs. The autotuning, which uses evolutionary algorithm-based stochastic sampling, takes place over an extended duration and ...
  • Osterweil, Emily; Krueger, Dilja; Reinhold, Kimberly; Bear, Mark (Society for Neuroscience, 2010-11)
    Fragile X syndrome (FXS) is caused by loss of the FMR1 gene product FMRP (fragile X mental retardation protein), a repressor of mRNA translation. According to the metabotropic glutamate receptor (mGluR) theory of FXS, ...
  • Manolakis, Dimitris G.; Lockwood, Ronald B.; Cooley, T.; Jacobson, J. (Society of Photo-optical Instrumentation Engineers, 2009-08)
    There are two broad classes of hyperspectral detection algorithms.1, 2 Algorithms in the first class use the spectral covariance matrix of the background clutter; in contrast, algorithms in the second class characterize ...
  • Gdor, I.; Sachs, H.; Roitblat, A.; Ruhman, S.; Strasfeld, David; Bawendi, Moungi G. (EDP Sciences, 2013-03)
    Height time hyperspectral near IR probing providing broad-band coverage is employed on PbSe nanocrystals, uncovering spectral evolution following high energy photo-excitation due to hot exciton relaxation and recombination. ...
  • Yelin-Bekerman, Laura; Elbaz, Idan; Diber, Alex; Dahary, Dvir; Gibbs-Bar, Liron; Alon, Shahar; Lerer-Goldshtein, Tali; Appelbaum, Lior (eLife Sciences Publications, Ltd., 2015-10)
    Sleep has been conserved throughout evolution; however, the molecular and neuronal mechanisms of sleep are largely unknown. The hypothalamic hypocretin/orexin (Hcrt) neurons regulate sleep/wake states, feeding, stress, and ...
  • Lehman, Li-Wei H.; Saeed, Mohammed; Moody, George B.; Mark, Roger Greenwood (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2010-09)
    In the context of critical illness, hypotension may be associated with acute kidney injury (AKI). Using the MIMIC II database, we studied the risk of AKI in ICU patients as a function of both the severity and duration of ...
  • Lee, J.; Mark, Roger Greenwood (IEEE Computer Society, 2011-03)
    In the intensive care unit (ICU), prompt therapeutic intervention to hypotensive episodes (HEs) is a critical task. Advance alerts that can prospectively identify patients at risk of developing an HE in the next few hours ...
  • Polyanskiy, Yury (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2012-07)
    This paper investigates the best achievable performance by a hypothesis test satisfying a structural constraint: two functions are computed at two different terminals and the detector consists of a simple comparator verifying ...
  • Ng, Shengyong; March-Riera, Sandra; Galstian, Ani; Hanson, Kirsten; Carvalho, Tania; Mota, Maria M.; Bhatia, Sangeeta N. (Company of Biologists, 2013-11)
    Homeostasis of mammalian cell function strictly depends on balancing oxygen exposure to maintain energy metabolism without producing excessive reactive oxygen species. In vivo, cells in different tissues are exposed to a ...
  • Lu, Congyi (Impact Journals/National Center for Biotechnology Information (U.S.), 2013-11)
    Ewing sarcoma (ES) is an aggressive malignancy driven by an oncogenic fusion protein, EWS-FLI1. Neuropeptide Y (NPY), and two of its receptors, Y1R and Y5R are up-regulated by EWS-FLI1 and abundantly expressed in ES cells. ...
  • Pinson, Matthew B.; Masoero, Enrico; Bonnaud, Patrick A.; Manzano, Hegoi; Ji, Qing; Yip, Sidney; Thomas, Jeffrey J.; Bazant, Martin Z.; Van Vliet, Krystyn J.; Jennings, Hamlin Manson (American Physical Society, 2015-06)
    Cement paste has a complex distribution of pores and molecular-scale spaces. This distribution controls the hysteresis of water sorption isotherms and associated bulk dimensional changes (shrinkage). We focus on two locations ...
  • Zhou, Lei; Nejad, Mohammad Imani; Trumper, David L. (American Society for Precision Engineering, 2014-11)
    The Attitude and Orbit Control System (AOCS) plays an essential role in the flight control of a spacecraft. This system usually contains a minimum of three reaction wheels (often 4-5 wheels are used for optimization and ...
  • Natter, Marc D.; Quan, Justin; Ortiz, David M.; Bousvaros, Athos; Ilowite, Norman T.; Inman, Christi J.; Marsolo, Keith; McMurry, Andrew J.; Sandborg, Christy I.; Schanberg, Laura E.; Wallace, Carol A.; Warren, Robert W.; Weber, Griffin M.; Mandl, Kenneth D. (BMJ Publishing Group, 2012-06)
    Objective: Registries are a well-established mechanism for obtaining high quality, disease-specific data, but are often highly project-specific in their design, implementation, and policies for data use. In contrast to the ...
  • Crew, Geoffrey B.; Allegrini, F.; Demkee, D.; Funsten, H. O.; McComas, David J.; Randol, B.; Rodriguez, B.; Schwadron, N. A.; Valek, P.; Weidner, S. (Springer Netherlands, 2008-10)
    The IBEX Background Monitor (IBaM) provides a small and lightweight method for independently measuring IBEX’s high-energy proton background by integrating the flux of >~14 keV protons over a ~7° conical FOV. The IBaM is ...
  • Yu, Winston; Yang, Yi-Chen; Savitsky, Andre; Alford, Donald; Brown, Casey; Wescoat, James; Debowicz, Dario; Robinson, Sherman (The World Bank, 2013-04)
    The last version of Indus Basin Model Revised (IBMR) is based on data from 2000 (primarily the Agricultural Statistics of Pakistan and water-related data from the Water and Power Development Authority [WAPDA]) and earlier ...
  • Bissonnette, Sarah A.; Rivera Rivera, Izarys; Sauer, Robert T.; Baker, Tania (Blackwell Scientific Publications, 2010-02)
    Small heat-shock proteins (sHSPs) are a widely conserved family of molecular chaperones, all containing a conserved α-crystallin domain flanked by variable N- and C-terminal tails. We report that IbpA and IbpB, the sHSPs ...
