  • Lee, Eunice Y.; Yuan, Tina L.; Danielian, Paul S.; West, Julie C.; Lees, Jacqueline (Elsevier, 2009-05)
    The retinoblastoma gene, RB-1, was the first identified tumor suppressor. Rb[superscript −/−] mice die in mid-gestation with defects in proliferation, differentiation and apoptosis. The activating E2F transcription factors, ...
  • Fariborzi, Hossein; Moghavvemi, M. (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2009-05)
    IEEE 802.15.4 is the prevailing standard for low-rate wireless personal area networks. It specifies the physical layer and medium access control sub-layer. Some emerging standards such as ZigBee define the network layer ...
  • He, David Da; Winokur, Eric S.; Heldt, Thomas; Sodini, Charles G. (2010-08)
    Obtaining vital signs non-invasively and in a wearable manner is essential for personal health monitoring. We propose the site behind the ear as a location for an integrated wearable vital signs monitor. This location is ...
  • Lau, Condon; Mirkovic, Jelena; Yu, Chung-Chieh; O'Donoghue, Geoff P.; Galindo, Luis H.; Dasari, Ramachandra Rao; Feld, Michael; de las Morenas, Antonio; Stier, Elizabeth (SPIE, 2013-07)
    Quantitative spectroscopy has recently been extended from a contact-probe to wide-area spectroscopic imaging to enable mapping of optical properties across a wide area of tissue. We train quantitative spectroscopic imaging ...
  • Andrews-Hanna, Jeffrey C.; Zuber, Maria; Arvidson, Raymond E.; Wiseman, Sandra M. (American Geophysical Union, 2010-06)
    The Meridiani Planum region of Mars has been identified as a region of past aqueous activity by a combination of orbital and in situ observations that revealed evidence for sulfate-rich dirty evaporites formed in a playa ...
  • Quintana, Lluis; Fernandez Muinos, Teresa; Genove, Elsa; Del Mar Olmos, Maria; Borros, Salvador; Semino, Carlos E. (Mary Ann Liebert, Inc., 2009-07)
    Cellular self-organization studies have been mainly focused on models such as Volvox, the slime mold Dictyostelium discoideum, and animal (metazoan) embryos. Moreover, animal tissues undergoing regeneration also exhibit ...
  • Cossairt, Brandi M.; Piro, Nicholas A.; Cummins, Christopher C. (American Chemical Society, 2010-02)
    Phosphorus-containing molecules are ubiquitous in the world around us and the synthetic and industrial utilization of phosphorus has prospered for over a century. The industrial reduction of phosphate rock (apatite, ...
  • Yamana, Teresa K.; Eltahir, Elfatih A. B. (Springer (Biomed Central Ltd.), 2010-11)
    Background Early warnings of malaria transmission allow health officials to better prepare for future epidemics. Monitoring rainfall is recognized as an important part of malaria early warning systems. The Hydrology, ...
  • Buonassisi, Tonio; Bertoni, Mariana I.; Chan, Maria K.; Ceder, Gerbrand; Lee, Yun Seog (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2009-06)
    We investigate earth abundant materials for thin-film solar cells that can meet tens of terawatts level deployment potential. Candidate materials are identified by combinatorial search, large-scale electronic structure ...
  • Seager, Sara; Robinson, Tyler D.; Meadows, Victoria S.; Crisp, David; Deming, Drake; A'Hearn, Michael F.; Charbonneau, David; Livengood, Timothy A.; Barry, Richard K.; Hearty, Thomas; Hewagama, Tilak; Lisse, Carey M.; McFadden, Lucy A.; Wellnitz, Dennis D. (Mary Ann Liebert, Inc., 2011-01)
    The EPOXI Discovery Mission of Opportunity reused the Deep Impact flyby spacecraft to obtain spatially and temporally resolved visible photometric and moderate resolution near-infrared (NIR) spectroscopic observations of ...
  • Pirandola, Stefano; Lloyd, Seth; Mancini, Stefano; Braunstein, Samuel L. (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2009-02)
    We consider one of the quantum key distribution protocols recently introduced in Ref. [Pirandola et al., Nature Phys. 4, 726 (2008)]. This protocol consists of a two-way quantum communication between Alice and Bob, where ...
  • Hainmueller, Jens; Su, Yiqing; Xu, Yiqing (UCLA Statistics/American Statistical Association, 2012-08)
    The Stata package ebalance implements entropy balancing, a multivariate reweighting method described in Hainmueller (2012 ) that allows users to reweight a dataset such that the covariate distributions in the reweighted ...
  • Hoge, Richard D.; Triantafyllou, Christina; Wald, Lawrence (Public Library of Science, 2011-09)
    While the BOLD (Blood Oxygenation Level Dependent) contrast mechanism has demonstrated excellent sensitivity to neuronal activation, its specificity with regards to differentiating vascular and parenchymal responses has ...
  • BALL, RAY; KOTHARI, S. P.; NIKOLAEV, VALERI V.; Kothari, S. P. (Wiley Blackwell, 2013-12)
    A substantial literature investigates conditional conservatism, defined as asymmetric accounting recognition of economic shocks (“news”), and how it depends on various market, political, and institutional variables. Studies ...
  • Kogan, Leonid; Papanikolaou, Dimitris (Annual Reviews, 2012-07)
    In this review we survey the recent research on the fundamental determinants of stock returns. These studies explore how firms' systematic risk and their investment and production decisions are jointly determined in ...
  • Taylor, Joshua Adam; Hover, Franz S. (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2009-08)
    Sampling from the importance density is often a costly aspect of particle filters. We present a method by which to replace the most computationally expensive component of the importance density with an efficient approximation, ...
  • House, Kurt Zenz; Baclig, Antonio C.; Ranjan, Manya; van Nierop, Ernst A.; Wilcox, Jennifer; Herzog, Howard J. (National Academy of Sciences of the United States of America, 2011-12)
    Capturing carbon dioxide from the atmosphere (“air capture”) in an industrial process has been proposed as an option for stabilizing global CO[subscript 2] concentrations. Published analyses suggest these air capture systems ...
  • Pindyck, Robert S.; Wang, Neng (American Economic Association, 2013-11)
    How likely is a catastrophic event that would substantially reduce the capital stock, GDP, and wealth? How much should society be willing to pay to reduce the probability or impact of a catastrophe? We answer these questions ...
  • Joskow, Paul L.; Parsons, John E. (American Academy of Arts and Sciences, 2009-09)
    In the last several years we have seen what appears to be revived global interest in continuing operation of existing nuclear power plants and constructing a new generation of plants.1 A recent International Atomic Energy ...
