  • Braakman, Rogier; Smith, Eric (Public Library of Science, 2014-2)
  • Song, Gang; Tin, Chung; Poon, Chi-Sang (Springer-Verlag, 2014-12)
    Current cellular-based connectomics approaches aim to delineate the functional or structural organizations of mammalian brain circuits through neuronal activity mapping and/or axonal tracing. To discern possible connectivity ...
  • Moshkovitz, Dana (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2014-10)
    The Parallel Repetition Theorem upper-bounds the value of a repeated (tensored) two prover game in terms of the value of the base game and the number of repetitions. In this work we give a simple transformation on games – ...
  • Li, Rui; Platt Jr., Robert; Yuan, Wenzhen; Pas, Andreas ten; Roscup, Nathan; Srinivasan, Mandayam A.; Adelson, Edward H. (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2014-09)
    Robust manipulation and insertion of small parts can be challenging because of the small tolerances typically involved. The key to robust control of these kinds of manipulation interactions is accurate tracking and control ...
  • Agha-mohammadi, Ali-akbar; Ure, Nazim Kemal; How, Jonathan P.; Vian, John (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2014-09)
    In persistent missions, taking system’s health and capability degradation into account is an essential factor to predict and avoid failures. The state space in health-aware planning problems is often a mixture of continuous ...
  • Veksler, Hagar; Fishman, Shmuel; Ketterle, Wolfgang (American Physical Society, 2014-08)
    One of the assumptions leading to the Gross-Pitaevskii equation (GPE) is that the interaction between atom pairs can be written effectively as a δ function so that the interaction range of the particles is assumed to vanish. ...
  • Esterhazy, S.; Liertzer, M.; Cerjan, A.; Ge, L.; Makris, K. G.; Stone, A. D.; Melenk, J. M.; Rotter, S.; Liu, David; Johnson, Steven G. (American Physical Society, 2014-08)
    We present an efficient and flexible method for solving the non-linear lasing equations of the steady-state ab initio laser theory. Our strategy is to solve the underlying system of partial differential equations directly, ...
  • Zeng, Lingping; Chen, Gang (American Institute of Physics (AIP), 2014-08)
    We report disparate quasiballistic heat conduction trends for periodic nanoscale line heaters deposited on a substrate, depending upon whether measurements are based on the peak temperature of the heaters or the temperature ...
  • Inam, Wardah; Perreault, David J.; Afridi, Khurram (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2014-08)
    This paper presents a new topology for a high-efficiency dc/dc resonant power converter that utilizes a resistance compression network (RCN) to provide simultaneous zero-voltage switching and near-zero-current switching ...
  • Molaei, Mehdi; Barry, Michael; Stocker, Roman; Sheng, Jian (American Physical Society, 2014-08)
    Understanding how bacteria move close to surfaces is crucial for a broad range of microbial processes including biofilm formation, bacterial dispersion, and pathogenic infections. We used digital holographic microscopy to ...
  • Yang, Lusann; Ceder, Gerbrand; Dacek, Stephen Thomas (American Physical Society, 2014-08)
    There is a clear need for a practical and mathematically rigorous description of local structure in inorganic compounds so that structures and chemistries can be easily compared across large data sets. Here a method for ...
  • Penna, Robert (American Physical Society, 2014-08)
    Extremal black holes tend to expel magnetic and electric fields. Fields are unable to reach the horizon because the length of the black hole throat blows up in the extremal limit. The length of the throat is related to the ...
  • Caballero, J. A.; Gonzalez-Jimenez, R.; Donnelly, T. William (American Physical Society, 2014-08)
    We perform a statistical analysis of the full set of parity-violating asymmetry data for elastic electron scattering including the most recent high precision measurement from Q-weak. Given the basis of the present analysis, ...
  • Thaler, Jesse; Larkoski, Andrew James (American Physical Society, 2014-08)
    We present three case studies at a 100 TeV proton collider for how jet analyses can be improved using new jet (sub)structure techniques. First, we use the winner-take-all recombination scheme to define a recoil-free jet ...
  • Perry, Jonathan; Ousterhout, Amy Elizabeth; Balakrishnan, Hari; Shah, Devavrat; Fugal, Hans (Association for Computing Machinery, 2014-08)
    An ideal datacenter network should provide several properties, including low median and tail latency, high utilization (throughput), fair allocation of network resources between users or applications, deadline-aware ...
  • Shen, Wenqing; Tian, Tao; Liao, Bolin; Zebarjadi, Mona (American Physical Society, 2014-08)
    The possibility of designing core-shell nanoparticles that are “invisible” to the conduction electrons has been demonstrated recently. A total scattering cross section smaller than 0.01% of the physical cross section was ...
  • Safdi, Benjamin R.; Lisanti, Mariangela; Formaggio, Joseph A.; Spitz, Joshua B. (American Physical Society, 2014-08)
    The cosmic neutrino background (CνB), produced about one second after the big bang, permeates the Universe today. New technological advancements make neutrino capture on beta-decaying nuclei (NCB) a clear path forward ...
  • Ji, Wenjie; Mukherjee, Biswaroop; Cheuk, Lawrence W.; Yefsah, Tarik; Ku, Mark Jen-Hao; Guardado Sanchez, Elmer; Zwierlein, Martin Wolfram (American Physical Society, 2014-08)
    We observe a long-lived solitary wave in a superfluid Fermi gas of [superscript 6]Li atoms after phase imprinting. Tomographic imaging reveals the excitation to be a solitonic vortex, oriented transverse to the long axis ...
  • Sivaraman Kaushalram, Anirudh; Winstein, Keith; Thaker, Pratiksha R.; Balakrishnan, Hari (Association for Computing Machinery (ACM), 2014-08)
    When designing a distributed network protocol, typically it is infeasible to fully define the target network where the protocol is intended to be used. It is therefore natural to ask: How faithfully do protocol designers ...
  • Caminade, Cyril; Heath, Andrew E; Jones, Anne E; MacLeod, David A; Gouda, Krushna C; Murty, Upadhyayula S; Goswami, Prashant; Mutheneni, Srinivasa R; Morse, Andrew P; Murty, Upadhyayula; Lauderdale, Jonathan (BioMed Central Ltd, 2014-08)
    Background: Malaria presents public health challenge despite extensive intervention campaigns. A 30-year hindcast of the climatic suitability for malaria transmission in India is presented, using meteorological variables ...
