  • Bringmann, Kathrin; Mahlburg, Karl Eugene (American Mathematical Society, 2009-02)
    Higher moments of the partition rank and crank statistics have been studied for their connections to combinatorial objects such as Durfee symbols, as well as for their connections to harmonic Maass forms. This paper proves ...
  • Chełkowski, Tadeusz; Gloor, Peter A.; Jemielniak, Dariusz (Public Library of Science, 2016-04)
    While researchers are becoming increasingly interested in studying OSS phenomenon, there is still a small number of studies analyzing larger samples of projects investigating the structure of activities among OSS developers. ...
  • Post, E. Rehmi; Popescu, Gabriel; Gershenfeld, Neil (American Institute of Physics, 2010-04)
    We describe an inertial measurement device based on an electrodynamically trapped proof mass. Mechanical constraints are replaced by guiding fields, permitting the trap stiffness to be tuned dynamically. Optical readout ...
  • Sapsis, Themistoklis; Haller, George (American Meteorological Society, 2009-08)
    The motion of inertial (i.e., finite-size) particles is analyzed in a three-dimensional unsteady simulation of Hurricane Isabel. As established recently, the long-term dynamics of inertial particles in a fluid is governed ...
  • Lim, Eugene J.; Ober, Thomas Joseph; Edd, Jon F.; Desai, Salil P.; Neal, Douglas; Bong, Ki Wan; Doyle, Patrick S.; McKinley, Gareth H.; Toner, Mehmet (Nature Publishing Group, 2014-06)
    Controlled manipulation of particles from very large volumes of fluid at high throughput is critical for many biomedical, environmental and industrial applications. One promising approach is to use microfluidic technologies ...
  • Gweon, Hyowon; Tenenbaum, Joshua B.; Schulz, Laura E. (National Academy of Sciences (U.S.), 2010-05)
    The ability to make inductive inferences from sparse data is a critical aspect of human learning. However, the properties observed in a sample of evidence depend not only on the true extension of those properties but also ...
  • Leonard, Julia; Lee, Yu-Na; Schulz, Laura E (American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS), 2017-09)
    Persistence, above and beyond IQ, is associated with long-term academic outcomes. To look at the effect of adult models on infants’ persistence, we conducted an experiment in which 15-month-olds were assigned to one of ...
  • Ackerman, Joshua; Mortensen, Chad R.; Becker, D. Vaughn; Neuberg, Steven L.; Kenrick, Douglas T. (Cambridge University Press, 2010-02)
    Social living brings humans great rewards, but also associated dangers, such as increased risk of infection from others. Although the body’s immune system is integral to combating disease, it is physiologically costly. ...
  • Mangerich, Aswin; Knutson, Charles G. F.; Parry, Nicola Maria Anne; Muthupalani, Sureshkumar; Ye, Wenjie; Prestwich, Erin; Cui, Liang; McFaline, Jose Luis; Mobley, Melissa W.; Ge, Zhongming; Taghizadeh, Koli; Wishnok, John S.; Wogan, Gerald N.; Fox, James G.; Tannenbaum, Steven Robert; Dedon, Peter C. (National Academy of Sciences (U.S.), 2012-06)
    Helicobacter hepaticus-infected Rag2-/- mice emulate many aspects of human inflammatory bowel disease, including the development of colitis and colon cancer. To elucidate mechanisms of inflammation-induced carcinogenesis, ...
  • Wogan, Gerald N.; Dedon, Peter C.; Tannenbaum, Steven Robert; Fox, James G. (Impact Journals, 2012-08)
    The importance of chronic inflammation as a risk factor for major cancers is well documented [1], and the inflammatory state is known to involve contributions of both adaptive and innate immune components. In a recent ...
  • Hill, Alison Lynn; Rand, David G.; Nowak, Martin A.; Christakis, Nicholas A. (Public Library of Science, 2010-11)
    Many behavioral phenomena have been found to spread interpersonally through social networks, in a manner similar to infectious diseases. An important difference between social contagion and traditional infectious diseases, ...
  • García-Albéniz, Xabier; Hsu, John; Lipsitch, Marc; Hernández-Díaz, Sonia; Logan, Roger W.; Hernan, Miguel Angel (Springer Netherlands, 2015-12)
    Little is known about the magnitude of the association between infective endocarditis and cancer, and about the natural history of cancer patients with concomitant diagnosis of infective endocarditis. We used the SEER-Medicare ...
  • Fernandez-Val, Ivan; Chernozhukov, Victor V. (Oxford University Press, 2011-03)
    Quantile regression (QR) is an increasingly important empirical tool in economics and other sciences for analysing the impact a set of regressors has on the conditional distribution of an outcome. Extremal QR, or QR applied ...
  • Andrews, Donald W. K.; Barwick, Panle Jia (Econometric Society, 2012-11)
    This paper is concerned with tests and confi dence intervals for parameters that are not necessarily identifi ed and are de fined by moment inequalities. In the literature, different test statistics, critical value ...
  • Belloni, Alexandre; Hansen, Christian; Kozbur, Damian; Chernozhukov, Victor V (Informa UK Limited, 2015-11)
    We consider estimation and inference in panel data models with additive unobserved individual specific heterogeneity in a high-dimensional setting. The setting allows the number of time-varying regressors to be larger than ...
  • Demory, Brice-Olivier; de Wit, Julien; Lewis, Nikole; Fortney, Jonathan J.; Zsom, Andras; Seager, Sara; Knutson, Heather A.; Heng, Kevin; Madhusudhan, Nikku; Gillon, M.; Barclay, Thomas; Desert, Jean-Michel; Parmentier, Vivien; Cowan, Nicolas B. (IOP Publishing, 2013-10)
    We present new visible and infrared observations of the hot Jupiter Kepler-7b to determine its atmospheric properties. Our analysis allows us to (1) refine Kepler-7b's relatively large geometric albedo of Ag = 0.35 ± 0.02, ...
  • Nir, Oaz; Bakal, Chris; Perrimon, Norbert; Berger, Bonnie (Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory Press, 2010-02)
    Biological networks are highly complex systems, consisting largely of enzymes that act as molecular switches to activate/inhibit downstream targets via post-translational modification. Computational techniques have been ...
  • Almendro, Vanessa; Cheng, Yu-Kang; Randles, Amanda; Itzkovitz, Shalev; Marusyk, Andriy; Ametller, Elisabet; Gonzalez-Farre, Xavier; Russnes, Hege G.; Rye, Inga H.; Borresen-Dale, Anne-Lise; Maruyama, Reo; van Oudenaarden, Alexander; Dowsett, Mitchell; Jones, Robin L.; Reis-Filho, Jorge; Gascon, Pere; Michor, Franziska; Polyak, Kornelia; Munoz, Montse; Helland, Aslaug; Gonen, Mithat; van Oudenaarden, Alexander (Elsevier, 2014-01)
    Cancer therapy exerts a strong selection pressure that shapes tumor evolution, yet our knowledge of how tumors change during treatment is limited. Here, we report the analysis of cellular heterogeneity for genetic and ...
  • Chernozhukov, Victor V.; Melly, Blaise; Fernandez-Val, Ivan (The Econometric Society, 2013-11)
    Counterfactual distributions are important ingredients for policy analysis and decomposition analysis in empirical economics. In this article, we develop modeling and inference tools for counterfactual distributions based ...
  • Sousa Bandeira, Afonso Jose (National Academy of Sciences (U.S.), 2016-04)
    Inference problems on graphs arise naturally when trying to make sense of network data. Oftentimes, these problems are formulated as intractable optimization programs. This renders the need for fast heuristics to find ...
