  • Rebentrost, Frank Patrick; Lloyd, Seth; Nelson, Keith Adam; Bawendi, Moungi G.; Eisele, Dorthe M.; Arias, Dylan H.; Fu, Xiaofeng; Bloemsma, Erik A.; Steiner, Colby P.; Jensen, Russell A.; Eisele, Holger; Tokmakoff, Andrei; Nicastro, Daniela; Knoester, Jasper (National Academy of Sciences (U.S.), 2014-08)
    Nature's highly efficient light-harvesting antennae, such as those found in green sulfur bacteria, consist of supramolecular building blocks that self-assemble into a hierarchy of close-packed structures. In an effort to ...
  • Kimmel, Shelby; da Silva, Marcus P.; Ryan, Colm A.; Johnson, Blake R.; Ohki, Thomas A. (American Physical Society, 2014-03)
    We describe how randomized benchmarking can be used to reconstruct the unital part of any trace-preserving quantum map, which in turn is sufficient for the full characterization of any unitary evolution or, more generally, ...
  • Venkataraman, Archana; Kubicki, Marek; Westin, Carl-Fredrik; Golland, Polina (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2010-06)
    We propose an alternative to univariate statistics for identifying population differences in functional connectivity. Our feature selection method is based on a procedure that searches across subsets of the data to isolate ...
  • Chiraphadhanakul, Virot; Barnhart, Cynthia (Springer Berlin Heidelberg, 2013-05)
    A myriad of uncontrollable factors in airline operations makes delays and disruptions unavoidable. To limit complexity, most conventional scheduling models, however, ignore the occurrence of unplanned events during operations. ...
  • Nasrabadi, Ebrahim; Paschalidis, Ioannis Ch.; Bertsimas, Dimitris J. (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2014-08)
    Fluid models provide a tractable and useful approach in approximating multiclass processing networks. However, they ignore the inherent stochasticity in arrival and service processes. To address this shortcoming, we develop ...
  • Hsiao, Kaijen; Kaelbling, Leslie P.; Lozano-Perez, Tomas (Springer-Verlag, 2011-07)
    This paper presents a decision-theoretic approach to problems that require accurate placement of a robot relative to an object of known shape, such as grasping for assembly or tool use. The decision process is applied to ...
  • Ackerman, Margaret E.; Moldt, Brian; Wyatt, Richard T.; Dugast, Anne-Sophie; McAndrew, Elizabeth G.; Tsoukas, Stephen; Jost, Stephanie; Berger, Christoph T.; Sciaranghella, Gaia; Liu, Qingquan; Irvine, Darrell J.; Burton, Dennis R.; Alter, Galit (Elsevier, 2010-12)
    Phagocytosis can be induced via the engagement of Fcγ receptors by antibody-opsonized material. Furthermore, the efficiency of antibody-induced effector functions has been shown to be dramatically modulated by changes in ...
  • Bauchspiess, Adolfo; Ishihara, João Y.; Borges, Geovany A.; Figueredo, Luis F. C. (Springer US, 2013-12)
    This paper addresses the H∞ output tracking problem for a class of nonlinear systems subjected to model uncertainties and with interval time-varying delay. The stability of the nonlinear time-delay system is analyzed with ...
  • How, Jonathan P; Graham, Matthew C.; Gustafson, Donald E. (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2015-10)
    Incorrect landmark and loop closure measurements can cause standard SLAM algorithms to fail catastrophically. Recently, several SLAM algorithms have been proposed that are robust to loop closure errors, but it is shown in ...
  • Stewart, Alistair; Diakonikolas, Ilias; Kamath, Gautam Chetan; Kane, Daniel M; Li, Jerry Zheng; Moitra, Ankur (Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics, 2018-01)
    We study the fundamental problem of learning the parameters of a high-dimensional Gaussian in the presence of noise | where an "-fraction of our samples were chosen by an adversary. We give robust estimators that achieve ...
  • Chen, Jing; Micali, Silvio; Valiant, Paul (Institute for Theoretical Computer Science, Tsinghua University, 2010-01)
    Because of its devastating effects in auctions and other mechanisms, collusion is prohibited and legally prosecuted. Yet, colluders have always existed, and may continue to exist. We thus raise the following question for ...
  • Stojanovic, Milica; Mitra, Urbashi; Hover, Franz S.; Reed, Brooks (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2012-12)
    Marine robots are an increasingly attractive means for observing and monitoring the ocean, but underwater acoustic communications remain a major challenge. The channel exhibits long delay spreads with frequency-dependent ...
  • Naghnaeian, Mohammad; Del Vecchio, Domitilla (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2017-08)
    The Chemical Master Equation (CME) is used to stochastically model biochemical reaction networks, under the Markovian assumption. The low-order statistical moments induced by the CME are often the key quantities that one ...
  • Bruni, Leonardo; Colombo, Alessandro; Del Vecchio, Domitilla (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2013-12)
    We propose a class of computationally efficient algorithms for conflict resolution in the presence of modeling and measurement uncertainties. Specifically, we address a scenario where a number of agents, whose dynamics are ...
  • Tran, Toan Trong; Elbadawi, Christopher; Totonjian, Daniel; Lobo, Charlene J.; Moon, Hyowon; Englund, Dirk R.; Ford, Michael J.; Aharonovich, Igor; Toth, Milos; Grosso, Gabriele (American Chemical Society (ACS), 2016-08)
    Hexagonal boron nitride (hBN) is an emerging two-dimensional material for quantum photonics owing to its large bandgap and hyperbolic properties. Here we report two approaches for engineering quantum emitters in hBN ...
  • Broderick, Kurt A.; Buehler, Markus J.; Buyukozturk, Oral; Lau, Denvid (National Academy of Sciences (U.S.), 2014-08)
    Accurate measurement of interfacial properties is critical any time two materials are bonded—in composites, tooth crowns, or when biomaterials are attached to the human body. Yet, in spite of this importance, reliable ...
  • diCenzo, George C.; Benedict, Alex B.; Fondi, Marco; Finan, Turlough M.; Mengoni, Alessio; Walker, Graham C; Griffitts, Joel S (Public Library of Science, 2018-04)
    Bacterial genome evolution is characterized by gains, losses, and rearrangements of functional genetic segments. The extent to which large-scale genomic alterations influence genotype-phenotype relationships has not been ...
  • Hill, Christopher N.; Marshall, John C.; Jones, Helen; Shuckburgh, Emily (American Meteorological Society, 2009-09)
    The robustness of Nakamura’s effective diffusivity diagnostic for quantifying eddy diffusivities of tracers within a streamwise-average framework is carefully examined in an oceanographic context, and the limits of its ...
  • Parandehgheibi, Marzieh; Modiano, Eytan H. (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2013-12)
    We study the robustness of interdependent networks, in which the state of one network depends on the state of the other network and vice versa. In particular, we focus on the interdependency between the power grid and ...
  • Yeh, Edmund; Zhang, Jianan; Modiano, Eytan H (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2017-02)
    We propose an interdependent random geometric graph (RGG) model for interdependent networks. Based on this model, we study the robustness of two interdependent spatially embedded networks where interdependence exists between ...
