  • Paparcone, Raffaella; Buehler, Markus J. (Elsevier, 2011-02)
    Amyloid fibrils and plaques are detected in the brain tissue of patients affected by Alzheimer’s disease, but have also been found as part of normal physiological processes such as bacterial adhesion. Due to their highly ...
  • Thompson, Todd Wesley; Waskom, Michael L.; Garel, Keri-Lee Alyson; Cardenas-Iniguez, Carlos; Reynolds, Gretchen O.; Winter, Rebecca; Chang, Patricia; Pollard, Kiersten; Lala, Nupur; Alvarez, George A.; Gabrieli, John D. E. (Public Library of Science, 2013-05)
    Fluid intelligence is important for successful functioning in the modern world, but much evidence suggests that fluid intelligence is largely immutable after childhood. Recently, however, researchers have reported gains ...
  • Evans, David S.; Schmalensee, Richard (Walter de Gruyter, 2010-12)
    Platform businesses add value by facilitating interactions between customers who are attracted in part by network externalities. Two-sided platform businesses with low costs of reversing participation status have become ...
  • Altamirano, D.; Belloni, Tomaso M.; Linares, Manuel Alegret; van der Klis, M.; Wijnands, R.; Curran, P. A.; Kalamkar, M.; Stiele, H.; Motta, S.; Munoz-Darias, T.; Casella, P.; Krimm, H. A. (Institute of Physics/American Astronomical Society, 2011-12)
    We report on the first 180 days of Rossi X-Ray Timing Explorer observations of the outburst of the black hole candidate IGR J17091-3624. This source exhibits a broad variety of complex light curve patterns including periods ...
  • Alesina, Alberto; Angeletos, George-Marios; Cozzi, Guido (American Economic Association, 2013-02)
    This paper responds to the comment of Di Tella and Dubra (2013). We first clarify that the model of Alesina and Angeletos (2005) admits two distinct types of multiplicity: one that is at the core of their contribution, and ...
  • Bertsimas, Dimitris J.; Farias, Vivek F.; Trichakis, Nikolaos (2013-02)
    We propose a scalable, data-driven method for designing national policies for the allocation of deceased donor kidneys to patients on a waiting list in a fair and efficient way. We focus on policies that have the same form ...
  • Zhang, Chongjie; Shah, Julie A (Neural Information Processing Systems Foundation Inc., 2014-12)
    We define a fairness solution criterion for multi-agent decision-making problems, where agents have local interests. This new criterion aims to maximize the worst performance of agents with consideration on the overall ...
  • Jagabathula, Srikanth; Shah, Devavrat (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2011-03)
    We consider the problem of designing a fair scheduling algorithm for discrete-time constrained queuing networks. Each queue has dedicated exogenous packet arrivals. There are constraints on which queues can be served ...
  • Pi, So-Young; Jackiw, Roman (American Physical Society, 2015-03)
    We examine the local conformal invariance (Weyl invariance) in tensor-scalar theories used in recently proposed conformal cosmological models. We show that the Noether currents associated with Weyl invariance in these ...
  • Burko, Lior M.; Hughes, Scott A. (American Physical Society, 2010-11)
    The goal of much research in relativity is to understand gravitational waves generated by a strong-field dynamical spacetime. Quantities of particular interest for many calculations are the Weyl scalar psi4, which is simply ...
  • Lusztig, George (Mathematical Sciences Publishers, 2014-05)
    We establish a relationship between the known parametrization of a family of irreducible representations of a Weyl group and Springer’s correspondence.
  • Haslanger, Sally (Alliance for the Study of Adoption and Culture, 2009-01)
    In a series of recent papers David Velleman has argued that it is morally wrong to bring a child into existence with the intention that the child will not have contact with one or both biological parents. (Velleman, 2005, ...
  • Perry, Ruth (Wiley-Blackwell Publishers, 2009)
    Families shape the individuals born into them in large and small ways, consciously and unconsciously; but the kinship dynamics that structure power in families are perhaps the most invisible of these forces. I doubt that ...
  • Vyas, Sejal; Matic, Ivan; Uchima, Lilen; Rood, Jenny; Zaja, Roko; Hay, Ronald T.; Ahel, Ivan; Chang, Paul (Nature Publishing Group, 2014-07)
    The poly(adenosine diphosphate (ADP)-ribose) polymerase (PARP) protein family generates ​ADP-ribose (​ADPr) modifications onto target proteins using ​NAD[superscript +] as substrate. Based on the composition of three ...
  • Vander Heiden, Matthew G.; Mayers, Jared R. (Elsevier, 2015-01)
    To fuel unregulated proliferation, cancer cells alter metabolism to support macromolecule biosynthesis. Cell culture studies have revealed how different oncogenic mutations and nutrients impact metabolism. Glucose and ...
  • Perry, Ruth (Berg Publishers, 2012-07)
    When one thinks of the Scottish enlightenment, one imagines men striding up the craggy peak adjoining Holyrood Park in Edinburgh, arguing and gesticulating, or reading one another‟s works by candle light, or sitting over ...
  • Fan, Yue; Kushima, Akihiro; Yip, Sidney; Yildiz, Bilge (American Physical Society (APS), 2012-05)
    A Reply to the Comment by P. Brommer and N. Mousseau.
  • Schujman, Gustavo E; Paoletti, Luciana; de Mendoza, Diego; Grossman, Alan D. (2003-05)
    Bacterial cells exert exquisite control over the biosynthesis of their membrane lipids, but the mechanisms are obscure. We describe the identification and purification from Bacillus subtilis of a transcription factor, FapR, ...
  • Milewski, Paul A.; Galeano-Rios, Carlos A.; Nachbin, André; Bush, John W. M. (Cambridge University Press, 2015-07)
    A millimetric droplet bouncing on the surface of a vibrating fluid bath can self-propel by virtue of a resonant interaction with its own wave field. This system represents the first known example of a pilot-wave system of ...
  • Marsland, Robert Alvin; England, Jeremy L. (American Physical Society, 2015-11)
    A long-standing goal of nonequilibrium statistical mechanics has been to extend the conceptual power of the Boltzmann distribution to driven systems. We report some new progress towards this goal. Instead of writing the ...
