  • Toikka, Juuso T. (Elsevier, 2011-11)
    I extend Myersonʼs [R. Myerson, Optimal auction design, Math. Oper. Res. 6 (1981) 58–73] ironing technique to more general objective functions. The approach is based on a generalized notion of virtual surplus which can be ...
  • Niu, Yunyun; Wang, Hong; Wiktor-Brown, Dominika; Rugo, Rebecca; Shen, Hongmei; Huq, Saiful; Engelward, Bevin P.; Epperley, Michael; Greenberger, Joel S. (Radiation Research Society, 2010-04)
    Radiation-induced DNA damage is a precursor to mutagenesis and cytotoxicity. During radiotherapy, exposure of healthy tissues can lead to severe side effects. We explored the potential of mitochondrial SOD (MnSOD) gene ...
  • Han, Weizhong; Fu, Engang; Demkowicz, Michael J.; Wang, Yongqiang; Misra, Amit (Cambridge University Press (Materials Research Society), 2013-10)
    The irradiation damage behaviors of single crystal (SC), coarse-grained (CG), and nanograined (NG) copper (Cu) films were investigated under Helium (He) ion implantation at 450 °C with different ion fluences. In irradiated ...
  • Davis, Diane E. (Springer Netherlands, 2010-05)
    Historically, the study of state formation has involved a focus on the urban and national conditions under which states monopolize the means of coercion, generate legitimacy, and marshal sufficient economic resources to ...
  • Matthews, H. D.; Solomon, Susan (American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS), 2013-03)
    Understanding how decreases in CO[subscript 2] emissions would affect global temperatures has been hampered in recent years by confusion regarding issues of committed warming and irreversibility. The notion that there will ...
  • Xue, Jin; Li, Zheng; Ram, Rajeev J (American Physical Society, 2017-07)
    A thermodynamic model for light-emitting diodes (LEDs) is developed by considering energy and entropy flows in the system. Thermodynamic constraints have previously been considered separately for the reversible process of ...
  • Nishida, Yusuke (American Physical Society, 2010-04)
    A fully gapped state of matter, whether insulator or superconductor, can be asked if it is topologically trivial or nontrivial. Here we investigate topological properties of superconducting Dirac fermions in 3D having a ...
  • Kaess, Michael; Johannsson, Hordur; Roberts, Richard; Ila, Viorela; Leonard, John Joseph; Dellaert, Frank (Sage Publications, 2011-12)
    We present a novel data structure, the Bayes tree, that provides an algorithmic foundation enabling a better understanding of existing graphical model inference algorithms and their connection to sparse matrix factorization ...
  • Kaess, Michael; Johannsson, Hordur; Roberts, Richard; Ila, Viorela; Leonard, John Joseph; Dellaert, Frank (IEEE Robotics & Automation Society, 2011-05)
    We present iSAM2, a fully incremental, graph-based version of incremental smoothing and mapping (iSAM). iSAM2 is based on a novel graphical model-based interpretation of incremental sparse matrix factorization methods, ...
  • Ghosal, Anubrata (International Network for Natural Sciences (INNSPUB), 2017-01)
    The emergence of multidrug resistant bacterial infections is a serious problem. Treatment options are limited to patients those are infected with multidrug resistant bacteria. We are in a desperate need of new antibiotics. ...
  • Follows, Michael J; Boyle, Edward A; Ito, Takamitsu (American Geophysical Union (AGU), 2004-09)
    Apparent Oxygen Utilization (AOU) is widely used to infer respiration in the oceans by assuming that surface oxygen concentration is close to saturation with the overlying atmosphere. However, significant disequilibrium ...
  • Karp, Peter D.; Berger, Bonnie; Kovats, Diane; Lengauer, Thomas; Linial, Michal; Sabeti, Pardis; Hide, Winston; Rost, Burkhard (Public Library of Science, 2015-01)
    Speed is of the essence in combating Ebola; thus, computational approaches should form a significant component of Ebola research. As for the development of any modern drug, computational biology is uniquely positioned to ...
  • Seneff, Stephanie; Davidson, Robert M.; Liu, Jingjing (MDPI AG, 2012-11)
    In a recent paper, we proposed that a contributing factor in autism is a deficiency in cholesterol sulfate supply. In this paper, we investigate a link between preeclampsia and subsequent autism in the child, and we ...
  • Tree, Douglas R.; Muralidhar, Abhiram; Doyle, Patrick S.; Dorfman, Kevin D. (American Chemical Society (ACS), 2013-10)
    The details surrounding the crossover from wormlike-specific to universal polymeric behavior has been the subject of debate and confusion even for the simple case of a dilute, unconfined wormlike chain. We have directly ...
  • Gregory, Jeremy; Fredholm, Susan A.; Kirchain, Randolph E., Jr. (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2009-07)
    This paper uses economic value metrics to evaluate the retention of value of secondary materials and provides a framework for characterizing value throughout a material and product life-cycle. These economic value metrics ...
  • Seneff, Stephanie; Lauritzen, Ann; Davidson, Robert M.; Lentz-Marino, Laurie (MDPI AG, 2013-01)
    This paper makes two claims: (1) autism can be characterized as a chronic low-grade encephalopathy, associated with excess exposure to nitric oxide, ammonia and glutamate in the central nervous system, which leads to ...
  • Seneff, Stephanie; Lauritzen, Ann; Davidson, Robert M.; Lentz-Marino, Laurie (MDPI AG, 2012-12)
    Theoretical inferences, based on biophysical, biochemical, and biosemiotic considerations, are related here to the pathogenesis of cardiovascular disease, diabetes, and other degenerative conditions. We suggest that the ...
  • Marenco, Alain; Cho, John Y. N.; Thouret, Valérie; Newell, Reginald E. (American Geophysical Union (AGU), 2001-05)
    We examine ozone concentrations recorded by 7630 commercial flights from August 1994 to December 1997 for spatial scaling properties. The large amount of data allows an approximately isentropic analysis of ozone variability ...
  • Swanson, Nancy L.; Koenig, Gerald; Seneff, Stephanie; Li, Chen (Hindawi Publishing Corporation, 2016-09)
    Osteonecrosis of the jaw (ONJ), a rare side effect of bisphosphonate therapy, is a debilitating disorder with a poorly understood etiology. FDA’s Adverse Event Reporting System (FAERS) provides the opportunity to investigate ...
  • Schattner, Yoni; Kivelson, Steven A.; Berg, Erez; Lederer, Samuel (American Physical Society, 2016-08)
    The Ising nematic quantum critical point associated with the zero-temperature transition from a symmetric to a nematic metal is an exemplar of metallic quantum criticality. We carry out a minus-sign-free quantum Monte Carlo ...
