  • Capdevila, Bernat; Crivellin, Andreas; Descotes-Genon, Sébastien; Matias, Joaquim; Virto, Javier (Springer Berlin Heidelberg, 2018-01)
    In the Standard Model (SM), the rare transitions where a bottom quark decays into a strange quark and a pair of light leptons exhibit a potential sensitivity to physics beyond the SM. In addition, the SM embeds Lepton ...
  • Zielinski, Brian L.; Allen, Andrew E.; Carpenter, Edward J.; Coles, Victoria J.; Crump, Byron C.; Doherty, Mary; Foster, Rachel A.; Goes, Joaquim I.; Gomes, Helga R.; Hood, Raleigh R.; McCrow, John P.; Montoya, Joseph P.; Moustafa, Ahmed; Sharma, Shalabh; Smith, Christa B.; Yager, Patricia L.; Paul, John H.; Satinsky, Brandon Meyer (Public Library of Science, 2016-09)
    The Amazon River has the largest discharge of all rivers on Earth, and its complex plume system fuels a wide array of biogeochemical processes, across a large area of the western tropical North Atlantic. The plume thus ...
  • Lu, Deng; Chong, Chee Seng; Ng, Lee Ching; Seidahmed, Osama Mekki; Eltahir, Elfatih A. B. (Wiley, 2018-01)
    Dengue is the most important human arboviral disease in Singapore. We classified residential areas into low-rise and high-rise housing and investigated the influence of urban drainage on the distribution of dengue incidence ...
  • Angel, Omer; Gorin, Vadim; Holroyd, Alexander E (Institute of Mathematical Statistics, 2012-11)
    A sorting network is a shortest path from 12⋯n to n⋯21 in the Cayley graph of the symmetric group S[subscript n] generated by nearest-neighbor swaps. A pattern is a sequence of swaps that forms an initial segment of some ...
  • Lee, Ye-Ryoung; Wang, Tout T.; Choi, Jae-Hoon; Ketterle, Wolfgang; Heo, Myoung-Sun; Rvachov, Timur Michael (American Physical Society, 2013-04)
    We show how to use trapped ultracold atoms to measure the magnetic susceptibility of a two-component Fermi gas. The method is illustrated for a noninteracting gas of [superscript 6]Li, using the tunability of interactions ...
  • Thorn, Catherine A.; Graybiel, Ann M. (Elsevier, 2010-07)
    How the cholinergic and dopaminergic systems of the striatum interact and how these interface with the massive neocortical input to the striatum are classic questions of cardinal interest to neurology and psychiatry. In ...
  • Louhghalam, Arghavan; Akbarian, Mehdi; Ulm, Franz-Josef (CRC Press, 2014-03)
    A novel mechanistic model based on an infinite beam on elastic foundation is developed to quantify the impact of pavement structural and material properties on pavement deflection and consequently on vehicle fuel consumption. ...
  • Cummings, M. L.; Thornburg, Kristopher M. (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2011-01)
    In the push to develop smart energy systems, designers have increasingly focused on systems that measure and predict user behavior to effect optimal energy consumption. While such focus is an important component in these ...
  • Einav, Liran; Finkelstein, Amy; Williams, Heidi L (American Economic Association, 2016-02)
    We present a simple graphical framework to illustrate the potential welfare gains from a "top-up" health insurance policy requiring patients to pay the incremental price for more expensive treatment options. We apply this ...
  • Looney, Adam; Greenstone, Michael (MIT Press, 2012-04)
    Energy consumption is critical to economic growth and quality of life. America's energy system, however, is malfunctioning. The status quo is characterized by a tilted playing field, where energy choices are based on the ...
  • Lambrecht, Anja; Tucker, Catherine Elizabeth (American Marketing Association, 2012-02)
    For many services, customers subscribe to long-term contracts. Standard economic theory suggests that customers evaluate a contract on the basis of its overall net benefits. the authors suggest that rather than evaluating ...
  • Cahoy, Kerri; Belikov, Ruslan; Bendek, Eduardo; Marinan, Anne D.; Webber, Matthew William (SPIE, 2014-08)
    Coronagraphic space telescopes require wavefront control systems for high-contrast imaging applications such as exoplanet direct imaging. High-actuator-count MEMS deformable mirrors (DM) are a key element of these wavefront ...
  • Chiou, Lesley; Tucker, Catherine Elizabeth (Elsevier, 2013-04)
    Given the preponderance of free content on the Internet, news media organizations face new challenges over how to manage access to and the pricing of their content. It is unclear whether content should be free or whether ...
  • Lessard, Philip A; O'Brien, Xian M; Currie, Devin H; Sinskey, Anthony J (BioMed Central Ltd, 2004-04)
    Background: Gram-positive bacteria of the genus Rhodococcus have shown an extraordinary capacity for metabolizing recalcitrant organic compounds. One hindrance to the full exploitation of Rhodococcus is the dearth of genetic ...
  • LeBlanc, S.A.; Dudas, Francis O; Carter, Sidney W; Bowring, Samuel A (Elsevier, 2016-03)
    We present Pb and Sr isotopic compositions and elemental concentrations for dentin and enamel from 28 human teeth from 10 locations in the southwestern United States. These teeth represent Native American communities that ...
  • Sterman, Yoav; Demaine, Erik D.; Oxman, Neri (ASME International, 2013-10)
    Origami is traditionally implemented in paper, which is a passive material. This research explores the use of material with embedded electronics such as printed circuit boards (PCB) as the medium for origami folding to ...
  • Friedman, Carey L.; Selin, Noelle Eckley (Copernicus GmbH, 2016-03)
    We present a spatially and temporally resolved global atmospheric polychlorinated biphenyl (PCB) model, driven by meteorological data, that is skilled at simulating mean atmospheric PCB concentrations and seasonal cycles ...
  • Montemanni, Roberto; Bertoni, Francesco; Kwee, Ivo; Akhmedov, Murodzhon; Kedaigle, Amanda Joy; Escalante, Renan A.; Fraenkel, Ernest (Public Library of Science (PLoS), 2017-07)
    With the recent technological developments a vast amount of high-throughput data has been profiled to understand the mechanism of complex diseases. The current bioinformatics challenge is to interpret the data and underlying ...
  • Fors, Brett P.; Buchwald, Stephen Leffler (American Chemical Society (ACS), 2009-08)
    An efficient Pd catalyst for the transformation of aryl chlorides, triflates, and nonaflates to nitroaromatics has been developed. This reaction proceeds under weakly basic conditions and displays a broad scope and excellent ...
  • Dooleweerdt, Karin; Fors, Brett P.; Buchwald, Stephen Leffler (American Chemical Society (ACS), 2010-04)
    A catalyst, based on a biarylphosphine ligand, for the Pd-catalyzed cross-coupling reactions of amides and aryl mesylates is described. This system allows an array of aryl and heteroaryl mesylates to be transformed into ...
