  • Gulhan, Doga C. (Doga Can) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2016)
    Two dijet measurements, one using 35 pb-¹ pPb data at [square root]sNN- 5.02 TeV, and another with 166 [mu]b-¹ PbPb and 5.3 pb-¹ pp data at [square root]sNN = 2.76 TeV collected with CMS detector at the LHC, are presented. ...
  • Faulkner, Thomas, Ph. D. Massachusetts Institute of Technology (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2009)
    This thesis is concerned with the properties of mesons and quarks which live in the strongly coupled plasma of certain gauge theories which are similar to QCD. To study these plasmas we exploit gauge gravity duality which ...
  • Lekaveckas, Mindaugas (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2014)
    In this thesis properties of probe particle traveling through quark gluon plasma as created in heavy ion collisions are investigated. In the first part, probability distribution P(k1 ) is calculated for an energetic parton ...
  • 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 ...
  • Murdock, David P., 1954- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1987)
  • Fetz, Eberhard Erich (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1966)
  • 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)
  • 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, ...
  • Cheuk, Lawrence W (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2017)
    This thesis describes experiments on ultracold fermionic atoms, and can be divided into two areas. The first concerns spin-orbit coupling; the second concerns quantum gas microscopy. With the use of Raman transitions, ID ...
  • 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. ...
