  • Altshuler, Yaniv; Fire, Michael; Aharony, Nadav; Elovici, Yuval; Pentland, Alex Paul (Springer Berlin Heidelberg, 2012-04)
    As truly ubiquitous wearable computers, mobile phones are quickly becoming the primary source for social, behavioral and environmental sensing and data collection. Today’s smartphones are equipped with increasingly more ...
  • Nickel, Marcel Dominik Johannes (American Physical Society, 2009-04)
    We explore the phase diagram of Nambu—Jona-Lasinio-type models near the chiral critical point allowing for phases with spatially inhomogeneous chiral condensates. In the chiral limit it turns out that the region in the ...
  • Leeb, Steven B.; Kirtley, James L., Jr.; Wichakool, Warit; Remscrim, Zachary N.; Tidd, Chad N.; Goshorn, J. Andrew; Thomas, Kevin; Cox, Robert W.; Chaney, Rachel (American Society of Naval Engineers (ASNE), 2010-06)
    Many proposals for future power systems for warships are extant. Anticipated improvements in capability, operating economy, and signature reduction may not be uniquely associated with these power systems. Alternatives are ...
  • Chen, Hanrong; Chakraborty, Arup K; Kardar, Mehran (American Physical Society, 2018-03)
    T cell receptors (TCRs) bind foreign or self-peptides attached to major histocompatibility complex (MHC) molecules, and the strength of this interaction determines T cell activation. Optimizing the ability of T cells to ...
  • Gnanadesikan, Anand; Emanuel, Kerry Andrew; Vecchi, Gabriel A.; Anderson, Whit G.; Hallberg, Robert (American Geophysical Union, 2010-09)
    Because ocean color alters the absorption of sunlight, it can produce changes in sea surface temperatures with further impacts on atmospheric circulation. These changes can project onto fields previously recognized to alter ...
  • MacMinn, Christopher W.; Szulczewski, Michael L.; Juanes, Ruben (Elsevier, 2011-04)
    A promising way to mitigate global warming is to sequester CO[subscript 2] in deep saline aquifers. In order to determine which aquifers are the best for sequestration, it is helpful to estimate how much CO[subscript 2] ...
  • Buehler, Markus J.; Yung, Yu Ching (American Institute of Physics, 2010-01)
    Proteins form the basis of a wide range of biological materials such as hair, skin, bone, spider silk, or cells, which play an important role in providing key functions to biological systems. The focus of this article is ...
  • Huskamp, Haiden A.; O'Malley, A. James; Horvitz-Lennon, Marcela; Taub, Anna Levine; Berndt, Ernst R.; Donohue, Julie M. (American Psychiatric Association, 2013-04)
    Objective The authors examined physician adoption of second-generation antipsychotic medications and identified physician-level factors associated with early adoption. Methods The authors estimated Cox proportional-hazards ...
  • Mou, Shaoshuai; Del Vecchio, Domitilla (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2016-02)
    This paper studies how retroactivity impacts the robustness of gene transcription networks against parameter perturbations. By employing the linearization technique and the real stability radius, we provide comparisons of ...
  • Moitra, Ankur; Perry, Amelia E.; Wein, Alexander Spence (Association for Computing Machinery (ACM), 2016-06)
    The stochastic block model is one of the oldest and most ubiquitous models for studying clustering and community detection. In an exciting sequence of developments, motivated by deep but non-rigorous ideas from statistical ...
  • Anderson, Eric T.; Fong, Nathan Minsheng; Simester, Duncan; Tucker, Catherine Elizabeth (American Marketing Association, 2010-04)
    When a multichannel retailer opens its first retail store in a state, the firm is obligated to collect sales taxes on all Internet and catalog orders shipped to that state. This article assesses how opening a store affects ...
  • Gruber, Jonathan; Chan, David Chimin (American Economic Association, 2010-05)
    As health care reform moves forward in the United States, one common feature of virtually all proposals is to expand coverage for low income populations not through a traditional public insurance model, but rather ...
  • Vitale, Salvatore; Del Pozzo, W. (American Physical Society, 2014-01)
    The upcoming direct detection of gravitational waves will open a window to probing the strong-field regime of general relativity. As a consequence, waveforms that include the presence of deviations from general relativity ...
  • Doshi, Peter (BMJ Publishing Group, Ltd., 2009-09)
    WHO has revised its definition of pandemic flu in response to current experience with A/H1N1. Peter Doshi argues that our plans for pandemics need to take into account more than the worst case scenarios The current flu ...
  • Gyorgy, Andras; Del Vecchio, Domitilla (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2013-12)
    One of the major challenges in systems and synthetic biology is the lack of modular composition. Modules change their behavior once connected, due to retroactivity. In this paper, we build upon our earlier results and ...
  • Longstaff, Francis A.; Pan, Jun; Pederson, Lasse H.; Singleton, Kenneth J. (American Economic Association, 2011-04)
    We study the nature of sovereign credit risk using an extensive set of sovereign CDS data. We find that the majority of sovereign credit risk can be linked to global factors. A single principal component accounts for 64 ...
  • Pham, Quang-Cuong; Tabareau, Nicolas; Slotine, Jean-Jacques E. (Public Library of Science, 2009-01)
    The functional role of synchronization has attracted much interest and debate: in particular, synchronization may allow distant sites in the brain to communicate and cooperate with each other, and therefore may play a ...
  • Cobb, Alexander R.; Gandois, Laure; Eri, Jangarun; Dommain, René; Abu Salim, Kamariah; Kai, Fuu Ming; Haji Su’ut, Nur Salihah; Hoyt, Alison May; Harvey, Charles F (National Academy of Sciences (U.S.), 2017-06)
    Tropical peatlands now emit hundreds of megatons of carbon dioxide per year because of human disruption of the feedbacks that link peat accumulation and groundwater hydrology. However, no quantitative theory has existed ...
  • King, Gary; Schneer, Benjamin; White, Ariel R. (American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS), 2017-11)
    We demonstrate that exposure to the news media causes Americans to take public stands on specific issues, join national policy conversations, and express themselves publicly—all key components of democratic politics—more ...
  • Stanley, Richard P. (Springer-Verlag, 2014-07)
    We give a short history of how the Upper Bound Conjecture for Spheres was proved.
