  • Hare, Caspar (Journal of Philosophy, Inc., 2012-05)
    In some cases the morality of action is an inter‐personal affair. I am obliged to do something and there is a person to whom I am obliged to do it. I do wrong and there is a person I wrong. Some routine examples: I do ...
  • Winn, Joshua Nathan; Johnson, John Asher; Howard, Andrew W.; Marcy, Geoffrey W.; Isaacson, Howard; Shopper, Avi; Bakos, Gaspar A.; Hartman, Joel D.; Albrecht, Simon H. (IOP Publishing, 2010-10)
    We find the orbit of the Neptune-sized exoplanet HAT-P-11b to be highly inclined relative to the equatorial plane of its host star. This conclusion is based on spectroscopic observations of two transits, which allowed the ...
  • Alam, Mohammad-Reza; Liu, Yuming; Yue, Dick K. P. (Cambridge University Press, 2010-01)
    We consider a class of higher order (quartet) Bragg resonance involving two incident wave components and a bottom ripple component (so called class III Bragg resonance). In this case, unlike class I/II Bragg resonance ...
  • Albrecht, Simon H.; Winn, Joshua Nathan; Johnson, John A.; Howard, Andrew W.; Marcy, Geoffrey W.; Butler, R. Paul; Arriagada, Pamela; Crane, Jeffrey D.; Shectman, Stephen A.; Thompson, Ian B.; Hirano, Teruyuki; Bakos, Gaspar; Hartman, Joel D. (IOP Publishing, 2012-08)
    We provide evidence that the obliquities of stars with close-in giant planets were initially nearly random, and that the low obliquities that are often observed are a consequence of star-planet tidal interactions. The ...
  • Sengupta, Sudipta; Lakshman, T. V.; Kodialam, Murali; Orlin, James B. (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2009-04)
    The emergence of new applications on the Internet like voice-over-IP, peer-to-peer, and video-on-demand has created highly dynamic and changing traffic patterns. In order to route such traffic with quality-of-service (QoS) ...
  • Kocsis, Bence; Loeb, Abraham; Yunes, Nicolas (American Physical Society, 2011-07)
    We examine the electromagnetic and gravitational wave (GW) signatures of stellar-mass compact objects (COs) spiraling into a supermassive black hole (extreme mass-ratio inspirals), embedded in a thin, radiation-pressure ...
  • Acemoglu, Daron; Dahleh, Munther A.; Ozdaglar, Asuman E.; Tahbaz Salehi, Alireza (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2011-02)
    We study a model of observational learning in social networks in the presence of uncertainty about agents' type distributions. Each individual receives a private noisy signal about a payoff-relevant state of the world, and ...
  • Lee, Jeongwon; Zhen, Bo; Chua, Song Liang; Qiu, Wenjun; Joannopoulos, John D.; Soljacic, Marin; Shapira, Ofer (American Physical Society, 2012-08)
    We demonstrate and distinguish experimentally the existence of a special type of Fano resonances at k≈0 in a macroscopic two-dimensional photonic crystal slab. We fabricate a square lattice array of holes in a silicon ...
  • Fisher, Peter H.; Cowan, Ray Franklin; Dujmic, Denis; Henderson, Shawn Wesley; Sciolla, Gabriella; Spitznagel, M.; Yamamoto, R. K.; Zhao, M. (American Physical Society, 2009-11)
    We present measurements of the branching fraction B and longitudinal polarization fraction fL for B0-->a1(1260)+a1(1260)- decays, with a1(1260)±-->pi-pi+pi±. The data sample, collected with the BABAR detector at the SLAC ...

F.; Sumorok, Konstanty C.; Sung, Kevin Kai Hong; Wenger, Edward Allen; Xie, Si; Yang, M.; Yilmaz, Yetkin; Yoon, Andrew; Zanetti, Marco; Wyslouch, Boleslaw (American Physical Society, 2011-08)
    Jet production in PbPb collisions at a nucleon-nucleon center-of-mass energy of 2.76 TeV was studied with the Compact Muon Solenoid (CMS) detector at the LHC, using a data sample corresponding to an integrated luminosity ...
  • Cerfon, Antoine J.; Choi, Eunmi; Marchewka, Chad D.; Mastovsky, Ivan; Shapiro, Michael; Sirigiri, Jagadishwar R.; Temkin, Richard J. (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2009-06)
    We report the observation of low-frequency oscillations (LFOs) in the range 165-180 MHz in a 1.5-MW 110-GHz gyrotron operating in 3-mus pulses. The oscillations have been measured by a capacitive probe located just before ...
  • Cowan, Ray Franklin; Dujmic, Denis; Sciolla, Gabriella; Zhao, M. (American Physical Society, 2012-05)
    We present results for B-meson decay modes involving a charm meson, protons, and pions using 455×10[superscript 6] BB̅ pairs recorded by the BaBar detector at the SLAC PEP-II asymmetric-energy e[superscript +]e[superscript ...
  • Taylor, Frank E. (American Physical Society, 2010-12)
    By using the ATLAS detector, observations have been made of a centrality-dependent dijet asymmetry in the collisions of lead ions at the Large Hadron Collider. In a sample of lead-lead events with a per-nucleon center of ...
  • White, Anne E.; Hillesheim, J. C.; DeBoo, J. C.; Peebles, W. A.; Carter, T. A.; Wang, G.; Rhodes, T. L.; Schmitz, L.; McKee, G. R.; Yan, Z.; Staebler, G. M.; Burrell, K. H.; Doyle, E. J.; Holland, C.; Petty, C. C.; Smith, S. P.; White, A. E.; Zeng, L. (American Physical Society, 2013-01)
    A critical gradient threshold has been observed for the first time in a systematic, controlled experiment for a locally measured turbulent quantity in the core of a confined high-temperature plasma. In an experiment in the ...
  • Bauer, Gerry P.; Bendavid, Joshua L.; Busza, Wit (American Physical Society, 2013-01)
    The cross section for dijet production in proton-proton collisions at √s=7  TeV is presented as a function of ξ˜, a variable that approximates the fractional momentum loss of the scattered proton in single-diffractive ...
  • Bayer, K.; Blackburn, Lindy L.; Bodiya, Timothy Paul; Brunet, G.; Cao, Junwei; Corbitt, Thomas R.; Donovan, Frederick J.; Duke, I.; Fritschel, Peter K.; Goda, K.; Grimaldi, F.; Harry, G.; Katsavounidis, Erotokritos; MacInnis, Myron E.; Markowitz, J.; Mason, Kenneth R.; Mavalvala, Nergis; Mittleman, R.; Ottaway, D.

D.; Stein, Leo Chaim; Weiss, Rainer; Wipf, Christopher C.; Zucker, Michael E.; LIGO Scientific Collaboration (Institute of Physics Publishing, 2009-07)
    We introduce a novel cooling technique capable of approaching the quantum ground state of a kilogram-scale system—an interferometric gravitational wave detector. The detectors of the Laser Interferometer Gravitational-wave ...
