  • Thiru, Prathapan; Kern, David Matthew; McKinley, Kara Lavidge; Monda, Julie Kathryn; Rago, Florencia; Su, Kuan-Chung; Tsinman, Tonia; Yarar, Defne; Bell, George W.; Cheeseman, Iain McPherson (American Society for Cell Biology, 2014-05)
    The key player in directing proper chromosome segregation is the macromolecular kinetochore complex, which mediates DNA–microtubule interactions. Previous studies testing individual kinetochore genes documented examples ...
  • Cheeseman, Iain McPherson; Kern, David Matthew (Elsevier B.V., 2012-10)
    Despite the identification of multiple kinetochore proteins, their structure and organization has remained unclear. New work uses electron microscopy to visualize isolated budding yeast kinetochore particles and reveal the ...
  • Kinnan, Cynthia; Townsend, Robert (American Economic Association, 2012-05)
    Kinship networks are beneficial for smoothing consumption and investment, but the channels are not well understood. We study the financing devices used for consumption and investment by Thai households. Households that are ...
  • Merino, Aimee M.; Dugast, Anne-Sophie; Wilson, Craig M.; Goepfert, Paul A.; Alter, Galit; Kaslow, Richard A.; Tang, Jianming (Public Library of Science, 2014-06)
    Background: KIR2DS4 gene variants encode full-length and truncated protein products, with only the former serving as membrane-bound receptors to activate natural killer (NK) cells. We have previously shown that full-length ...
  • Indyk, Piotr; Price, Eric C. (Association for Computing Machinery (ACM), 2011-06)
    We initiate the study of sparse recovery problems under the Earth-Mover Distance (EMD). Specifically, we design a distribution over m x n matrices A such that for any x, given Ax, we can recover a k-sparse approximation ...
  • Kronheimer, P. B.; Mrowka, Tomasz S. (Oxford University Press - London Mathematical Society, 2011-12)
    For each partial flag manifold of SU(N), we define a Floer homology theory for knots in 3-manifolds, using instantons with codimension-2 singularities. In the case of SU(2), the resulting Floer homology group for classical ...
  • Byrne, Alex (Oxford University Press, 2011-04)
    Introduction We often know that we are thinking, and what we are thinking about. Here ‘thinking’ is not supposed to be an umbrella term for cognition in general, but should be taken in roughly the sense of ‘a penny for ...
  • Byrne, Alex (Cambridge University Press, 2011-11)
    As it is silly to ask somebody,‘How do you know you are in pain?’ it is equally foolish to ask, ‘How do you know that you want to go to the movies?’ Vendler, Res Cogitans Knowing that one wants to go to the movies is ...
  • Byrne, Alex (Oxford University Press, 2012-06)
    If I descry a hawk, I find the hawk but I do not find my seeing of the hawk. My seeing of the hawk seems to be a queerly transparent sort of process, transparent in that while a hawk is detected, nothing else is detected ...
  • Agarwal, Sameer; Milner, Henry; Kleiner, Ariel; Talwalkar, Ameet; Jordan, Michael; Mozafari, Barzan; Stoica, Ion; Madden, Samuel R. (Association for Computing Machinery (ACM), 2014-06)
    Modern data analytics applications typically process massive amounts of data on clusters of tens, hundreds, or thousands of machines to support near-real-time decisions.The quantity of data and limitations of disk and ...
  • Dresselhaus, Mildred; Wakabayashi, Katsunori; Enoki, Toshiaki; Mori, Takanori; Takai, Kazuyuki; Saito, Riichiro; Murakami, Shuichi; Yamamoto, Masayuki; Sasaki, Ken-ichi (American Physical Society, 2009-10)
    The quantum corrections to the energies of the Γ point optical phonon modes (Kohn anomalies) in graphene nanoribbons (NRs) are investigated. We show theoretically that the longitudinal optical (LO) modes undergo a Kohn ...
  • Breton, Rene P.; van Kerkwijk, M. H.; Carter, Joshua Adam; Rappaport, Saul A. (IOP Publishing, 2012-03)
    We present an analysis and interpretation of the Kepler binary system KOI 1224. This is the fourth binary found with Kepler that consists of a thermally bloated, hot white dwarf in a close orbit with a more or less normal ...
  • Barclay, Thomas; DeVore, John; Rowe, Jason; Still, Martin; Rappaport, Saul A.; Sanchis Ojeda, Roberto (IOP Publishing, 2014-03)
    Kepler planet candidate KOI-2700b (KIC 8639908b), with an orbital period of 21.84 hr, exhibits a distinctly asymmetric transit profile, likely indicative of the emission of dusty effluents, and reminiscent of KIC 1255b. ...
  • Dabo, Ismaila; Ferretti, Andrea; Poilvert, Nicolas; Li, Yanli; Marzari, Nicola (American Physical Society, 2010-09)
    In approximate Kohn-Sham density-functional theory, self-interaction manifests itself as the dependence of the energy of an orbital on its fractional occupation. This unphysical behavior translates into qualitative and ...
  • Walker, M.; Sakuma, Tai; Redwine, Robert P.; Milner, Richard G.; Leight, William Axel; Kocoloski, Adam Philip; Jones, Christopher LaDon; Hoffman, A. M.; Corliss, Ross Cameron; Betancourt, Michael Joseph; Balewski, Jan T.; Surrow, Bernd (American Physical Society, 2009-08)
    We report K/π fluctuations from Au+Au collisions at √[s[subscript NN]]=19.6, 62.4, 130, and 200 GeV using the STAR detector at the Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider. K/π fluctuations in central collisions show little dependence ...
  • Okumura, Tomoyuki; Ericksen, Russell E.; Takaishi, Shigeo; Wang, Sophie S. W.; Dubeykovskiy, Zinaida; Shibata, Wataru; Betz, Kelly S.; Muthupalani, Sureshkumar; Rogers, Arlin B.; Fox, James G.; Rustgi, Anil K.; Wang, Timothy C. (American Association for Cancer Research, 2010-11)
    Chronic infectious diseases, such as Helicobacter pylori infection, can promote cancer in a large part through induction of chronic inflammation. Oncogenic K-ras mutation in epithelial cells activates inflammatory pathways, ...
  • Hiura, Shinsaku; Mohan, Ankit; Raskar, Ramesh (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2010-05)
    We propose a novel wide angle imaging system inspired by compound eyes of animals. Instead of using a single lens, well compensated for aberration, we used a number of simple lenses to form a compound eye which produces ...
  • Feldman, Dan; Gil, Stephanie; Knepper, Ross A.; Julian, Brian; Rus, Daniela L. (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2013-05)
    We present an approach to position k servers (e.g. mobile robots) to provide a service to n independently moving clients; for example, in mobile ad-hoc networking applications where inter-agent distances need to be minimized, ...
  • Kaashoek, M. Frans; Arnold, Jeffrey B. (Association for Computing Machinery, 2009)
    Ksplice allows system administrators to apply patches to their operating system kernels without rebooting. Unlike previous hot update systems, Ksplice operates at the object code layer, which allows Ksplice to transform ...
  • Taylor, Frank E. (American Physical Society, 2012-01)
    The production of K[subscript S] [superscript 0] and Λ hadrons is studied in pp collision data at √s=0.9 and 7 TeV collected with the ATLAS detector at the LHC using a minimum-bias trigger. The observed distributions of ...
