  • 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 ...
  • 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 ...
  • 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 ...
  • 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 ...
  • Tausanovitch, Chris; Warshaw, Christopher (Cambridge University Press, 2014-07-30)
    Municipal governments play a vital role in American democracy, as well as in governments around the world. Despite this, little is known about the degree to which cities are responsive to the views of their citizens. In ...
  • David, Lawrence A; Materna, Arne C; Friedman, Jonathan; Blackburn, Matthew C; Baptista, Maria Ines; Perrotta, Allison Rose; Erdman, Susan E.; Alm, Eric J. (Biomed Central Ltd., 2014-07)
    Background: Disturbance to human microbiota may underlie several pathologies. Yet, we lack a comprehensive understanding of how lifestyle affects the dynamics of human-associated microbial communities. Results: Here, ...
  • Vieira, Bruno G. M.; Barros, Eduardo B.; Vercosa, Daniel G.; Samsonidze, Georgy; Filho, Antonio G. Souza; Dresselhaus, Mildred (American Physical Society, 2014-07)
    In this work, we use an extended tight-binding approach for calculating the Fermi-energy dependence of the structural deformation of chiral single-wall carbon nanotubes (SWNTs). We show that, in general, nanotube strains ...
  • David, Lawrence A; Materna, Arne C; Friedman, Jonathan; Blackburn, Matthew C; Baptista, Maria Ines; Perrotta, Allison Rose; Erdman, Susan E.; Alm, Eric J. (BioMed Central Ltd, 2014-07)

  • Campbell, Trevor David; How, Jonathan P. (Association for Uncertainty in Artificial Intelligence Press, 2014-07)
    This paper presents an approximate method for performing Bayesian inference in models with conditional independence over a decentralized network of learning agents. The method first employs variational inference on each ...
  • Tan, Kai S; Choi, Hyungwon; Jiang, Xiaoou; Yin, Lu; Seet, Ju E; Patzel, Volker; Chow, Vincent T; Tan, Kai; Seet, Ju; Engelward, Bevin P. (BioMed Central Ltd, 2014-07)
    Background: Tissue regeneration in the lungs is gaining increasing interest as a potential influenza management strategy. In this study, we explored the role of microRNAs, short non-coding RNAs involved in post-transcriptional ...
  • Zhou, Jiawei; Chen, Gang; Liao, Bolin (American Physical Society, 2014-07)
    We generalize the two-temperature model [Sanders and Walton, Phys. Rev. B 15, 1489 (1977)] for coupled phonon-magnon diffusion to include the effect of the concurrent magnetization flow, with a particular emphasis on the ...
  • Marin, R.; Schuster, S. C.; Scholin, C. A.; Ottesen, Elizabeth A.; Young, Curtis R.; Gifford, Scott Michael; Eppley, John M.; DeLong, Edward (American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS), 2014-07)
    Oscillating diurnal rhythms of gene transcription, metabolic activity, and behavior are found in all three domains of life. However, diel cycles in naturally occurring heterotrophic bacteria and archaea have rarely been ...
  • Scott, Jeremy; Guo, Philip J.; Davis, Randall (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2014-07)
    Instructors typically explain algorithms in computer science by tracing their behavior, often on blackboards, sometimes with algorithm visualizations. Using blackboards can be tedious because they do not facilitate ...
  • Wu, Faye Y.; Asada, Harry (MIT Press, 2014-07)
    A new type of wrist-mounted robot, the Supernumerary Robotic (SR) Fingers, is proposed to work closely with the human hand and aid the human in performing a variety of prehensile tasks. For people with diminished functionality ...
  • Dixon, Patrick Gerard; Gibson, Lorna (Royal Society, 2014-07)
    Although bamboo has been used structurally for millennia, there is currently increasing interest in the development of renewable and sustainable structural bamboo products (SBPs). These SBPs are analogous to wood products ...
  • Barthes, Julien; Ndreu-Halili, Albana; Hasan, Anwarul; Vrana, Nihal Engin; Ozcelik, Hayriye; Hindie, Mathilde (Hindawi Publishing Corporation, 2014-07)
    In tissue engineering and regenerative medicine, the conditions in the immediate vicinity of the cells have a direct effect on cells’ behaviour and subsequently on clinical outcomes. Physical, chemical, and biological ...
  • de Montjoye, Yves-Alexandre; Shmueli, Erez; Wang, Samuel S.; Pentland, Alex Paul (Public Library of Science, 2014-07)
    The rise of smartphones and web services made possible the large-scale collection of personal metadata. Information about individuals' location, phone call logs, or web-searches, is collected and used intensively by ...
  • Daya, Bhavya Kishor; Chen, Chia-Hsin Owen; Subramanian, Suvinay; Kwon, Woo Cheol; Park, Sunghyun; Krishna, Tushar; Holt, Jim; Chandrakasan, Anantha P.; Peh, Li-Shiuan (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2014-06-30)
    In the many-core era, scalable coherence and on-chip interconnects are crucial for shared memory processors. While snoopy coherence is common in small multicore systems, directory-based coherence is the de facto choice for ...
