  • Boning, Peggy; Dubowsky, Steven (SAGE Publications, 2010-08)
    Autonomous space robots will be required for such future missions as the construction of large space structures and repairing disabled satellites. These robots will need to be precisely controlled. However, factors such ...
  • Armesto, Nestor; Gulhan, Doga Can; Milhano, Jose Guilherme (Elsevier, 2015-06)
    Centrality selection has been observed to have a large effect on jet observables in pPb collisions at the Large Hadron Collider, stronger than that predicted by the nuclear modification of parton densities. We study to ...
  • Slocum, Alexander H. (Elsevier B.V., 2010-04)
    From the humble three-legged milking stool to a SEMI standard wafer pod location to numerous sub-micron fixturing applications in instruments and machines, exactly constrained mechanisms provide precision, robustness, and ...

    Kinematic distances to 750 molecular clouds identified in the [superscript 13]CO J = 1 → 0 Boston University-Five College Radio Astronomy Observatory Galactic Ring Survey (GRS) are derived assuming the Clemens rotation ...
  • Hutchinson, Ian Horner (American Physical Society, 2018-05)
    It is shown through multidimensional particle-in-cell simulations that at least in Maxwellian background plasmas the long-wavelength transverse instability of plasma electron holes is caused not by the previously proposed ...
  • Nguyen, Thach T.; Koh, Ming Joo; Shen, Xiao; Romiti, Filippo; Hoveyda, Amir H.; Schrock, Richard Royce (American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS), 2016-04)
    A major shortcoming in olefin metathesis, a chemical process that is central to research in several branches of chemistry, is the lack of efficient methods that kinetically favor E isomers in the product distribution. Here ...
  • Thomas, Carla S.; Xu, Liza; Olsen, Bradley D. (American Chemical Society (ACS), 2012-08)
    Aqueous processing of globular protein–polymer diblock copolymers into solid-state materials and subsequent solvent annealing enables kinetic and thermodynamic control of nanostructure formation to produce block copolymer ...
  • Shen, Xiao; Nguyen, Thach T.; Koh, Ming Joo; Xu, Dongmin; Speed, Alexander W. H.; Hoveyda, Amir H.; Schrock, Richard Royce (Nature Publishing Group, 2017-01)
    Macrocyclic compounds are central to the development of new drugs, but preparing them can be challenging because of the energy barrier that must be surmounted in order to bring together and fuse the two ends of an acyclic ...
  • Wagner, F. F.; Zhang, Y.-L.; Fass, D. M.; Gale, J. P.; Weïwer, M.; McCarren, P.; Fisher, S. L.; Kaya, T.; Zhao, W.-N.; Reis, S. A.; Hennig, K. M.; Thomas, M.; Lemercier, B. C.; Lewis, M. C.; Moyer, M. P.; Scolnick, E.; Haggarty, S. J.; Holson, E. B.; Joseph, Nadine; Guan, Jisong; Tsai, Li-Huei (Royal Society of Chemistry (RSC), 2014-10)
    Aiming towards the development of novel nootropic therapeutics to address the cognitive impairment common to a range of brain disorders, we set out to develop highly selective small molecule inhibitors of HDAC2, a chromatin ...
  • Class, Caleb A.; Aguilera-Iparraguirre, Jorge; Green, William H. (Royal Society of Chemistry, 2015-04)
    Potential energy surfaces and reaction kinetics were calculated for 40 reactions involving sulfur and oxygen. This includes 11 H[subscript 2]O addition, 8 H[subscript 2]S addition, 11 hydrogen abstraction, 7 beta scission, ...
  • Schoessler, Philipp; Windham, Daniel E.; Leithinger, Daniel; Follmer, Sean Weston; Ishii, Hiroshi (Association for Computing Machinery (ACM), 2015-11)
    Pin-based shape displays not only give physical form to digital information, they have the inherent ability to accurately move and manipulate objects placed on top of them. In this paper we focus on such object manipulation: ...
  • Haakonsen, Christian Bernt; Hutchinson, Ian Horner; Zhou, Chuteng (American Institute of Physics (AIP), 2015-03)
    The solar wind wake behind the moon is studied with 1D electrostatic particle-in-cell (PIC) simulations using a physical ion to electron mass ratio (unlike prior investigations); the simulations also apply more generally ...
  • Joelsson, L. M. T.; Schmidt, J. A.; Nilsson, E. J. K.; Blunier, T.; Griffith, D. W. T.; Johnson, M. S.; Ono, Shuhei (Copernicus GmbH, 2016-04)
    Methane is the second most important long-lived greenhouse gas and plays a central role in the chemistry of the Earth's atmosphere. Nonetheless there are significant uncertainties in its source budget. Analysis of the ...

  • Stephanopoulos, Gregory; Wasylenko, Thomas Michael (Wiley Blackwell, 2013-08)
    Rigorous mathematical modeling of carbon-labeling experiments allows estimation of fluxes through the pathways of central carbon metabolism, yielding powerful information for basic scientific studies as well as for a wide ...
  • Bourque, Alexander Jules; Rutledge, Gregory C (American Chemical Society (ACS), 2016-05)
    A kinetic model is proposed to describe the structure and rate of advancement of the growth front during crystallization. Solidification occurs through the mechanisms of surface nucleation and lateral spreading of the solid ...
  • Vandewiele, Nick M.; Magoon, Gregory R.; Van Geem, Kevin M.; Green, William H.; Marin, Guy B.; Reyniers, Marie-Francoise (American Chemical Society (ACS), 2014-12)
    A detailed kinetic model for the thermal decomposition of the advanced fuel Jet-Propellant 10 (JP-10) was constructed using a combination of automated mechanism generation techniques and ab initio calculations. Rate ...
