  • 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 ...
  • Wang, Shannon Xuanyue (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2012)
    Quantum information science promises a host of new and useful applications in communication, simulation, and computational algorithms. Trapped atomic ions are one of the leading physical systems with potential to implement ...
  • Lifschytz, Gilad (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1995)
  • Childs, Andrew MacGregor, 1977- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2004)
    Quantum mechanical computers can solve certain problems asymptotically faster than any classical computing device. Several fast quantum algorithms are known, but the nature of quantum speedup is not well understood, and ...
  • Lantz, Brian Thomas (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1999)
  • Nandkishore, Rahul (Rahul Mahajan ) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2012)
    Two dimensional electron systems (2DES) provide a uniquely promising avenue for investigation of many body physics. Graphene constitutes a new and unusual 2DES, which may give rise to unexpected collective phenomena. ...
  • Ganguli, Surya, 1977- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1998)
    We study the Wigner phase space formulation of quantum mechanics and compare it to the Hamiltonian picture of classical mechanics. In this comparison we focus on the differences in initial conditions available to each ...
  • Lutomirski, Andrew (Andrew Michael) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2011)
    This thesis covers two unrelated topics. The first part of my thesis is about quantum money, a cryptographic protocol in which a mint can generate a quantum state that no one can copy. In public-key quantum money, anyone ...
