  • 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.; Dubeykovskaya, 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 ...
  • Balewski, Jan T.; Betancourt, Michael Joseph; Corliss, Ross Cameron; Hays-Wehle, James Prewitt; Hoffman, A. M.; Jones, Christopher LaDon; Kocoloski, Adam Philip; Leight, William Axel; Milner, Richard G.; Redwine, Robert P.; Sakuma, Tai; Seele, Joseph Patrick; Surrow, Bernd; van Nieuwenhuizen, Gerrit Jan; Walker, Matthew H. (American Physical Society, 2011-09)
    We report on K[superscript *0] production at midrapidity in Au + Au and Cu + Cu collisions at √s[subscript NN]=62.4 and 200 GeV collected by the Solenoid Tracker at the Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider detector. The ...
  • Dahleh, Munther A.; Santarelli, Keith R. (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2009-07)
    Our previous work has been devoted to designing asymptotically stabilizing switching controllers for a class of second order LTI plants. Here, we extend the results of our previous work by proving that, when a plant can ...
  • Mrowka, Tomasz S.; Wehrheim, Katrin (Springer-Verlag, 2010-11)
    We examine the L²-topology of the gauge orbits over a closed Riemann surface. We prove a subtle local slice theorem based on the div-curl lemma of harmonic analysis, and deduce local pathwise connectedness of the gauge ...
  • Cheeseman, Iain McPherson; Tzur, Yonatan B.; Carvalho, Carlos Egydio de; Nadarajan, Saravanapriah; Van Bostelen, Ivo; Gu, Yanjie; Chu, Diana S.; Colaiacovo, Monica P. (Public Library of Science, 2012-08)
    Successful execution of the meiotic program depends on the timely establishment and removal of sister chromatid cohesion. LAB-1 has been proposed to act in the latter by preventing the premature removal of the meiosis-specific ...
  • Brault, Norman D.; Jiang, Shaoyi; Von Muhlen, Marcio Goldani; Knudsen, Scott Michael; Manalis, Scott R. (American Chemical Society, 2010-02)
    Improved methods are needed for routine, inexpensive monitoring of biomarkers that could facilitate earlier detection and characterization of cancer. Suspended microchannel resonators (SMRs) are highly sensitive, ...
  • Yamauchi, Toyohiko; Sugiyama, Norikazu; Sakurai, Takashi; Iwai, Hidenao; Yamashita, Yutaka (SPIE, 2010-02)
    Cell membrane motions of living cells are quantitatively measured in nanometer resolution by low-coherent full-field quantitative phase microscopy. Our setup is based on a full-field phase shifting interference microscope ...
  • Oh, Seungeun; Fang-Yen, Chris; Choi, Wonshik; Yaqoob, Zahid; Fu, Dan; Park, YongKeun; Dassari, Ramachandra R.; Feld, Michael S. (Elsevier, 2012-07)
    Electrical activity may cause observable changes in a cell's structure in the absence of exogenous reporter molecules. In this work, we report a low-coherence interferometric microscopy technique that can detect an optical ...
  • Joshi, Bipin; Barman, Ishan; Dingari, Narahara Chari; Cardenas, Nelson; Mohanty, Samarendra; Dos Santos Soares, Jaqueline; Dasari, Ramachandra Rao (Nature Publishing Group, 2013-10)
    We report a novel technique for label-free, rapid visualization of structure and dynamics of live cells with nanoscale sensitivity through traditionally opaque media. Specifically, by combining principles of near-infrared ...
