  • Rappaport, Saul A.; Dai, Fei; Winn, Joshua Nathan; Yu, L. (IOP Publishing, 2015-10)
    We present the discovery of a transiting exoplanet candidate in the K2 Field-1 with an orbital period of 9.1457 hr: K2-22b. The highly variable transit depths, ranging from ~0% to 1.3%, are suggestive of a planet that is ...

    We validate a R[subscript p]=2.32 ± 0.24R[subscript ⊕] planet on a close-in orbit (P = 2.260455 ± 0.000041 days) around K2-28 (EPIC 206318379), a metal-rich M4-type dwarf in the Campaign 3 field of the K2 mission. Our ...

    We report on Doppler observations of three transiting planet candidates that were detected during Campaign 1 of the K2 mission. The Doppler observations were conducted with FIES, HARPS-N, and HARPS. We measure the mass of ...

    We report on the discovery and characterization of the transiting planet K2-39b (EPIC 206247743b). With an orbital period of 4.6 days, it is the shortest-period planet orbiting a subgiant star known to date. Such planets ...
  • Roland, Christof E.; Roland, Gunther M.; Veres, Gabor (American Physical Society, 2011-12)
    Production of the K∗(892)0 and K∗(892)0 resonances was studied via their K+π− and K−π+ decay modes in central Pb + Pb, Si + Si, C + C, and inelastic p + p collisions at 158A GeV(√sNN = 17.3 GeV) with the NA49 detector at ...
  • Asano, Tetsuo; Demaine, Erik D.; Demaine, Martin L.; Uehara, Ryuhei (Springer, 2010-01)
    Kaboozle is a puzzle consisting of several square cards, each annotated with colored paths and dots drawn on both sides and holes drilled. The goal is to join two colored dots with paths of the same color (and fill all ...
  • Saraf, Shubhangi; Kopparty, Swastik; Sudan, Madhu; Lev, Vsevolod F. (Springer-Verlag, 2011-01)
    For a finite vector space V and a nonnegative integer r≤dim V, we estimate the smallest possible size of a subset of V, containing a translate of every r-dimensional subspace. In particular, we show that if K⊆V is the ...
  • Odhner, Lael U.; Asada, Harry (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2010-07)
    A population of stochastic agents, as seen in swarm robots and some biological systems, can be modeled as a population Markov chain where the transition probability matrix is time-varying, or inhomogeneous. This paper ...
  • Winslow, Lindley (IOP Publishing, 2016-02)
    In the late stages of nuclear burning for massive stars (M > 8 M[subscript ⊙]), the production of neutrino–antineutrino pairs through various processes becomes the dominant stellar cooling mechanism. As the star evolves, ...
  • Sclavounos, Paul D. (Royal Society, 2012-05)
    A new stochastic representation of a seastate is developed based on the Karhunen–Loeve spectral decomposition of stochastic signals and the use of Slepian prolate spheroidal wave functions with a tunable bandwidth parameter. ...
  • Berns, Christoph; Kondratiev, Yuri; Kozitsky, Yuri; Kutovyi, Oleksandr (Springer-Verlag, 2013-11)
    The dynamics of an infinite system of point particles in ℝ[superscript d], which hop and interact with each other, is described at both micro- and mesoscopic levels. The states of the system are probability measures on the ...

    nhibitors that target the receptor tyrosine kinase (RTK)/Ras/mitogen-activated protein kinase (MAPK) pathway have led to clinical responses in lung and other cancers, but some patients fail to respond and in those that do ...
  • Juvekar, Chiraag Shashikant; Lee, Hyung-Min; Kwong, Joyce; Chandrakasan, Anantha P. (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2016-01)
    Counterfeiting is a major problem plaguing global supply chains. While small low-cost tagging solutions for supply-chain management exist, security in the face of fault-injection [1] and side-channel attacks [2] remains a ...
  • Drexler, Alejandro; Fischer, Greg; Schoar, Antoinette (American Economic Association, 2014-04)
    Micro-entrepreneurs often lack the financial literacy required to make important financial decisions. We conducted a randomized evaluation with a bank in the Dominican Republic to compare the impact of two distinct programs: ...
  • Laub, Michael T.; Laub, Michael T (Public Library of Science, 2016-07)
    As we become increasingly dependent on electronic information-processing systems at home and work, it’s easy to lose sight of the fact that our very survival depends on highly complex biological information-processing ...
  • Sive, Hazel L. (Springer Science + Business Media B.V., 2011)
    For two decades, my lab has been studying development using two vertebrate animals, the frog Xenopus and the zebrafish, Danio. This has been both productive and challenging. The initial rationale for the choice was to ...
