  • Pedraza, Juan Manuel (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2006)
    Interactions between genes in living organisms are intrinsically stochastic. This not only gives rise to phenotypic variation in clonal populations of cells, but also fundamentally limits signaling fidelity and cellular ...
  • Mettetal, Jerome Thomas, II (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2008)
    Cells are not simple passive observers oblivious to their environment, but sense and adapt to environmental changes in order to thrive. In addition to sensing the presence of signals in the environment, cells can extract ...
  • Wissner-Gross, Zachary Daniel (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2007)
    Rapid and accurate detection of airborne micro-particles is currently an important problem in national security. One approach to such detection, bioaerosol mass spectrometry (BAMS), is currently under development at Lawrence ...
  • O'Kelly, Michael J. T (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2008)
    A bioinformatic and laboratory investigation into S. cerevisiae's system for the maintenance and homogenization of rDNA. Eliminating mutations and heterogeneity in rDNA repeats is necessary evolutionarily, but harmful to ...
  • Harrington, Kathleen M (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2012)
    The GEANT4 physics simulation program is known to have errors in how hadronic interactions are implemented. This has the potential to cause errors in the Monte Carlos used to determine the expected neutron backgrounds in ...
  • Howe, Ethan (Ethan Gabriel Grief) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2005)
    Introduction: In this paper, I will be assessing the capabilities of the Neutral Meson Spectrometer (NMS) detector in a planned experiment at the High Intensity Gamma Source at Duke University. I will review the relevant ...
  • Venkatachalam, Vivek (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2006)
    One of the largest problems in scanning tunneling microscopy design is noise control. It is the burden of the designer to determine if money should be used to build a floating room for vibration isolation or for top-of-the-line ...
  • Solis Ortíz, Angel Roberto (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2006)
    In this thesis we asses the capabilities of the Crystal Box detector and evaluate its advantages over the Neutral Meson Spectrometer (NMS) detector in a planned experiment at the High Intensity Gamma Source (HI[gamma]S) ...
  • Franke, Arthur James (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2007)
    In this thesis, I carried out a simulation study to characterize the measurement of bottom quark flow in relativistic Pb+Pb collisions using the Compact Muon Solenoid experiment. The Hydjet event generator is used to produce ...
  • Gill, Jay S. (Jay Singh) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2006)
    This thesis presents a series of simulations of quantum computations using the adiabatic algorithm. The goal is to explore the effect of error, using a perturbative approach that models 1-local errors to the Hamiltonian ...
  • DeGrush, Adam (Adam Jon) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2010)
    Understanding the underlying mechanisms involved in the interactions between nucleons is one of the fundamental problems in nuclear physics. Over roughly the last 70 years, this question has been approached on many different ...
  • Foxman, Ethan Bradley, 1966- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1993)
  • Dial, Oliver Eugene, III (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2007)
    Accurate spectroscopy has driven advances in chemistry, materials science, and physics. However, despite their importance in the study of highly correlated systems, two-dimensional systems (2DES) have proven difficult to ...
  • Mortonson, Michael J. (Michael John), 1983- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2004)
    We examine the effect that the shape of the source brightness profile has on the magnitude fluctuations of images in lens systems due to microlensing. We do this by convolving a variety of accretion disk models (including ...
  • Vaezi, Seyyed Mir Abolhassan (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2011)
    Until three decades ago, our understanding of the condensed matter systems were based on two frameworks developed by Russian physicist Lev Landau: his theory of phase transition, and Fermi liquids. The Landau theory of ...
  • Marks, Lawrence James (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1950)
  • Chan, Tom (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1995)
  • Korbly, Stephen E (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2005)
    We present theoretical and experimental results from a Smith-Purcell radiation experiment using the electron beam from a 17 GHz high gradient accelerator. Smith- Purcell radiation occurs when a charged particle travels ...
  • Kasper, Justin Christophe, 1977- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2003)
    The kinetic properties of ions in the solar wind plasma are studied. Observations of solar wind +H and +2He by the Faraday Cup instrument component of the Solar Wind Experiment on the Wind spacecraft show that these ions ...
  • Cox, Jürgen, 1970- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2001)
    Two kinds of models are considered which have a Boltzmann weight which is either not real or real but not positive and so standard Monte Carlo methods are not applicable. These sign or complex action problems are solved ...
