  • Hanf, Karl J. M. (Karl John Mortley), 1969- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2002)
    A detailed treatment of the electrostatic energy of biomolecules in solution is used for two applications that require consideration of large numbers of states: multiple-site titration and protein design. The continuum ...
  • Slutsky, Michael (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2005)
    In Part I of the thesis, a general physical framework describing the kinetics of protein- DNA interaction is developed. Recognition and binding of specific sites on DNA by proteins is central for many cellular functions ...
  • Luitel, Prashant (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2008)
    Circadian clocks are ubiquitous throughout the living world. Of these circadian clocks, the simplest one is found in cyanobacteria - unicellular, photosynthetic marine organisms. Studies of the circadian clock of Synechococcus ...
  • Murdock, David P., 1954- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1987)
  • Williams, Mobolaji (Mobolaji O.) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2013)
    This thesis studies the decay of a pseudo-goldstino to a gravitino plus a photon in the Minimal Supersymmetric Standard Model. The foundational premise of this decay process is that there are two independent sectors of ...
  • Fetz, Eberhard Erich (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1966)
  • Fernandes, Louis Edward (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2007)
    We investigate the use of an Amptek Cool-X X-ray Generator for an instructional tool in the physics of x-rays, as well as a source for x-rays for crystal diffraction experiments. The x-ray source is a solid-state two-phase ...
  • Richter, Burton, 1931- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1952)
  • Czerwinski, David (David E.) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2008)
    In this thesis, we describe the use of medical insurance claims data in three important areas of medicine. First, we develop expert- trained statistical models of quality of care based on variables derived from insurance ...
  • Zheng, Yannan Ph. D. Massachusetts Institute of Technology (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2015)
    MicroRNAs (miRNAs) are a class of small non-coding RNAs which play important roles in post transcriptional gene regulation. miRNAs regulate more than half of mammalian protein-coding genes. They have been found to participate ...
  • Xiao, Sa, Ph. D. Massachusetts Institute of Technology (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2009)
    A search for a WIMP dark matter annihilation signal is carried out in the AMS01 negatively charged (Z=-I) particle spectrum, following a set of supersymmetric benchmark scenarios in the mSUGRA framework. The result is ...
  • Oh, Seung-eun (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2010)
    The electric activity of living cells is accompanied with changes in their optical and mechanical properties, which arise from the intrinsic biophysics of the cell membrane. These intrinsic changes can be used as an indicator ...
  • Abrams, Daniel S. (Daniel Stephen), 1972- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1999)
  • Shah, Nisha N (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1986)
  • Kononov, Alina (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2014)
    Through this thesis, heterostructures composed of a thin layer of hexagonal boron nitride atop a monolayer of molybdenum disulfide were fabricated with the goal of measuring quantum capacitance and probing the transition ...
  • Kim, Isaac H. (Isaac Hyun) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2007)
    Ever since the birth of the first quantum error correcting code, many error correcting techniques and formalism has been constructed so far. Among those, generating a quantum code on a locally planar geometry have lead to ...
  • Jo, Gyu-Boong (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2010)
    In this thesis, two sets of experimental studies in bosonic and fermionic gases are described. In the first part of the thesis, itinerant ferromagnetism was studied in a strongly interacting Fermi gas of ultracold atoms. ...
  • Jordan, Stephen Paul (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2008)
    The quantum circuit model is the most widely used model of quantum computation. It provides both a framework for formulating quantum algorithms and an architecture for the physical construction of quantum computers. However, ...
  • Sachdev, Subir (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1982)
  • Tassev, Svetlin Valentinov (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2005)
    Using canonical quantization we show that the spectrum of the scalar cosmological fluctuations as calculated until now is not correct. We derive the correct expression for the spectrum, and show that our correct treatment ...
