  • MacMinn, Christopher W.; Szulczewski, Michael L.; Juanes, Ruben (Elsevier, 2011-04)
    A promising way to mitigate global warming is to sequester CO[subscript 2] in deep saline aquifers. In order to determine which aquifers are the best for sequestration, it is helpful to estimate how much CO[subscript 2] ...
  • Buehler, Markus J.; Yung, Yu Ching (American Institute of Physics, 2010-01)
    Proteins form the basis of a wide range of biological materials such as hair, skin, bone, spider silk, or cells, which play an important role in providing key functions to biological systems. The focus of this article is ...
  • Huskamp, Haiden A.; O'Malley, A. James; Horvitz-Lennon, Marcela; Taub, Anna Levine; Berndt, Ernst R.; Donohue, Julie M. (American Psychiatric Association, 2013-04)
    Objective The authors examined physician adoption of second-generation antipsychotic medications and identified physician-level factors associated with early adoption. Methods The authors estimated Cox proportional-hazards ...
  • Anderson, Eric T.; Fong, Nathan Minsheng; Simester, Duncan; Tucker, Catherine Elizabeth (American Marketing Association, 2010-04)
    When a multichannel retailer opens its first retail store in a state, the firm is obligated to collect sales taxes on all Internet and catalog orders shipped to that state. This article assesses how opening a store affects ...
  • Gruber, Jonathan; Chan, David Chimin (American Economic Association, 2010-05)
    As health care reform moves forward in the United States, one common feature of virtually all proposals is to expand coverage for low income populations not through a traditional public insurance model, but rather ...
  • Vitale, Salvatore; Del Pozzo, W. (American Physical Society, 2014-01)
    The upcoming direct detection of gravitational waves will open a window to probing the strong-field regime of general relativity. As a consequence, waveforms that include the presence of deviations from general relativity ...
  • Doshi, Peter (BMJ Publishing Group, Ltd., 2009-09)
    WHO has revised its definition of pandemic flu in response to current experience with A/H1N1. Peter Doshi argues that our plans for pandemics need to take into account more than the worst case scenarios The current flu ...
  • Gyorgy, Andras; Del Vecchio, Domitilla (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2013-12)
    One of the major challenges in systems and synthetic biology is the lack of modular composition. Modules change their behavior once connected, due to retroactivity. In this paper, we build upon our earlier results and ...
  • Longstaff, Francis A.; Pan, Jun; Pederson, Lasse H.; Singleton, Kenneth J. (American Economic Association, 2011-04)
    We study the nature of sovereign credit risk using an extensive set of sovereign CDS data. We find that the majority of sovereign credit risk can be linked to global factors. A single principal component accounts for 64 ...
  • Pham, Quang-Cuong; Tabareau, Nicolas; Slotine, Jean-Jacques E. (Public Library of Science, 2009-01)
    The functional role of synchronization has attracted much interest and debate: in particular, synchronization may allow distant sites in the brain to communicate and cooperate with each other, and therefore may play a ...
  • Stanley, Richard P. (Springer-Verlag, 2014-07)
    We give a short history of how the Upper Bound Conjecture for Spheres was proved.
  • Skow, Bradford (Taylor & Francis, 2011-06)
    It is better when people get what they deserve. So we need an axiology according to which the intrinsic value of a possible world is a function of both how well-off and how deserving the people in that world are. But how ...
  • Allais, Andrea; McGreevy, John (American Physical Society, 2013-09)
    Motivated by the holographic study of Fermi surfaces, we develop methods to solve Einstein gravity coupled to fermions and gauge fields, with anti–de Sitter boundary conditions and a chemical potential.
  • Benneke, Bjoern; Seager, Sara (IOP Publishing, 2013-12)
    One of the most profound questions about the newly discovered class of low-density super-Earths is whether these exoplanets are predominately H2-dominated mini-Neptunes or volatile-rich worlds with gas envelopes dominated ...
  • Demaine, Erik D.; Hajiaghayi, MohammadTaghi; Mahini, Hamid; Malec, David L.; Raghavan, S.; Sawant, Anshul; Zadimoghaddam, Morteza (Association for Computing Machinery (ACM), 2014-04)
    We study the power of fractional allocations of resources to maximize our influence in a network. This work extends in a natural way the well-studied model by Kleinberg, Kempe, and Tardos (2003), where a designer selects ...
  • Chen, Zhongzhou; Gladding, Gary (American Physical Society, 2014-04)
    Visual representations play a critical role in teaching physics. However, since we do not have a satisfactory understanding of how visual perception impacts the construction of abstract knowledge, most visual representations ...
  • Silvestri, Alessandra; Pogosian, Levon; Koyama, Kazuya; Zhao, Gong-Bo (American Physical Society, 2010-05)
    The next generation of weak lensing surveys will trace the growth of large scale perturbations through a sequence of epochs, offering an opportunity to test general relativity on cosmological scales. We review in detail ...
  • Figalli, Alessio; Jerison, David (Elsevier, 2013-06)
    We investigate the regularity of the marginals onto hyperplanes for sets of finite perimeter. We prove, in particular, that if a set of finite perimeter has log-concave marginals onto a.e. hyperplane then the set is convex. ...
  • Slavov, Nikolai; van Oudenaarden, Alexander; van Oudenaarden, Alexander (Elsevier, 2012-06)
    Gene-expression responses to an input can depend on growth conditions; in this issue, Sasson et al. (2012) show that this dependence is lower when the input results in a high degree of promoter occupancy.
  • Goldwasser, Shafi; Kalai, Yael Tauman; Popa, Raluca Ada; Vaikuntanathan, Vinod; Zeldovich, Nickolai (Springer-Verlag Berlin Heidelberg, 2013)
    Cryptographic schemes for computing on encrypted data promise to be a fundamental building block of cryptography. The way one models such algorithms has a crucial effect on the efficiency and usefulness of the resulting ...
