  • Simcoe, Robert A; Egan, Mark; Furesz, Gabor (SPIE, 2016-07)
    The WIYN Spectrograph for Doppler Monitoring (WISDOM) was a concept responding to NASA's solicitation for an extreme precision radial velocity instrument for the 3.5 meter WIYN telescope on Kitt Peak in Arizona. In order ...
  • Bergshoeff, Eric A.; Freedman, Daniel Z.; Kallosh, Renata; Van Proeyen, Antoine (American Physical Society, 2015-10)
    Using superconformal methods we derive an explicit de Sitter supergravity action invariant under spontaneously broken local N = 1 supersymmetry. The supergravity multiplet interacts with a nilpotent Goldstino multiplet. ...
  • Stokes, Erik; Zanello, Fabrizio; Ha, Huy Tai (Springer-Verlag, 2013-05)
    We study Stanley’s long-standing conjecture that the h-vectors of matroid simplicial complexes are pure O-sequences. Our method consists of a new and more abstract approach, which shifts the focus from working on constructing ...
  • Yang, Heehong; Ahn, Sae Ryun; Park, Tai Hyun; Song, Hyun Seok (The Korean Society for Biotechnology and Bioengineering, 2015-07)
    Olfactory receptors (ORs), belonging to the Gprotein coupled receptor (GPCR) family, are very difficult to be overexpressed, purified and reconstituted because of their hydrophobicity and complicated structure. These ...
  • Sixta, Herbert; Borrega Sabate, Marc (Springer Netherlands, 2013-10)
    Hot water extraction (HWE) of pulp in a flow-through reactor was evaluated as a method to purify paper-grade pulps. About 50–80 % of the xylan and up to 50 % of the lignin in unbleached birch Kraft pulp was extracted by ...
  • Kwak, Rhokyun; Kwon, Hyukjin J.; Al-Anzi, Bader; Lim, Geunbae; Kim, Bumjoo; Pham, Van-Sang; Kim, Minseok; Han, Jongyoon (Nature Publishing Group, 2016-08)
    There is an increasing need for the desalination of high concentration brine (>TDS 35,000 ppm) efficiently and economically, either for the treatment of produced water from shale gas/oil development, or minimizing the ...
  • Cho, Mimi; Brigham, Christopher J.; Sinskey, Anthony J.; Stubbe, JoAnne (American Chemical Society (ACS), 2012-02)
    Class I polyhydroxybutyrate (PHB) synthase (PhaC) from Ralstonia eutropha catalyzes the formation of PHB from (R)-3-hydroxybutyryl-CoA, ultimately resulting in the formation of insoluble granules. Previous mechanistic ...
  • Byrne, Alex (Cornell University, 2002-10)
    Joseph Levine, Purple Haze: The Puzzle of Consciousness. New York: Oxford University Press, 2001. Pp. 204. This much-anticipated book is a detailed elaboration and defense of Levine’s influential claim that there is an ...
  • Bargh, John A.; Ackerman, Joshua (Blackwell Publishing Ltd., 2010-05)
    The resurgence of motivation in social psychology has been a welcome addition to the cognitive revolution, though a theory-based approach to motivational content has remained conspicuously absent. Kenrick, Griskevicius, ...
  • Mitgutsch, Konstantin; Alvarado, Narda (Association for Computing Machinery (ACM), 2012-05)
    The lack of assessment tools to analyze serious games and insufficient knowledge on their impact on players is a recurring critique in the field of game and media studies, education science and psychology. Although initial ...
  • Perez De Rosso, Santiago Nicolas; Jackson, Daniel (Association for Computing Machinery (ACM), 2016-11)
    Git is a widely used version control system that is powerful but complicated. Its complexity may not be an inevitable consequence of its power but rather evidence of flaws in its design. To explore this hypothesis, we ...
  • Barry, Andrew J.; Tedrake, Russell Louis (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2015-05)
    We present a novel stereo vision algorithm that is capable of obstacle detection on a mobile ARM processor at 120 frames per second. Our system performs a subset of standard block-matching stereo processing, searching only ...
  • Ooi, K. J. A.; Ng, D. K. T.; Wang, T.; Chee, A. K. L.; Ng, S. K.; Wang, Q.; Ang, L. K.; Tan, D. T. H.; Agarwal, Anuradha; Kimerling, Lionel C (Nature Publishing Group, 2017-01)
    CMOS platforms operating at the telecommunications wavelength either reside within the highly dissipative two-photon regime in silicon-based optical devices, or possess small nonlinearities. Bandgap engineering of ...
  • Offenhuber, Dietmar; Lee, David; Wolf, Malima I.; Phithakkitnukoon, Santi; Biderman, Assaf; Ratti, Carlo (Taylor & Francis, 2012-05)
    Problem, research strategy, and findings: Reliable information on trash disposal is crucial but becomes difficult as waste removal chains grow increasingly complex. Lack of firm data on the spatial behavior of waste hampers ...
  • Autor, David H.; Handel, Michael J. (University of Chicago Press, 2013-04)
    Using original, representative survey data, we document that analytical, routine, and manual job tasks can be measured with high validity, vary substantially within and between occupations, are significantly related to ...
  • Takara, Thomas J.; Bell, Stephen P.; Takara,Thomas J. (Elsevier B.V., 2009-11)
    The loading of replicative helicases onto DNA is tightly regulated in all organisms, yet the molecular mechanisms for this event remain poorly defined. Remus et al. (2009) provide important insights into helicase loading ...
  • Rayo, Agustin (Routledge/Taylor & Francis Group, 2010-05)
    I will argue for localism about credal assignments: the view that credal assignments are only well-defined relative to suitably constrained sets of possibilities. I will motivate the position by suggesting that it is the ...
  • Berger, Suzanne (Cambridge University Press, )
    In the first globalization, 1870-1914, as in our own times, debates raged over the impact on domestic life of free movement across borders of goods, people, and capital. Then as today in the hard times that have followed ...
  • Shariatinia, Zeinab; Haghighi, Manouchehr; Shafiei, Ali; Feiznia, Sadat; Zendehboudi, Sohrab (Springer Berlin Heidelberg, 2014-12)
    Incorporating PVT properties and compositional evolution of oil inclusions into reservoir engineering simulator protocols can enhance understanding of oil accumulation, reservoir charge history, and migration events. ...
  • Kurotani, Tohru; Miyashita, Toshio; Wintzer, Marie; Konishi, Tomokazu; Sakai, Kazuhisa; Ichinohe, Noritaka; Rockland, Kathleen (Springer-Verlag, 2012-03)
    The rodent granular retrosplenial cortex (GRS) is reciprocally connected with the hippocampus. It is part of several networks implicated in spatial learning and memory, and is known to contain head-direction cells. There ...
