  • Manbachi, Amir; Kreamer-Tonin, Katlin; Gamo, Nao J; Montague, Charles; Acharya, Soumyadipta; Logsdon, Elizabeth A; Allen, Robert H; Durr, Nicholas J; Luciano, Mark G; Theodore, Nicholas; Brem, Henry; Yazdi, Youseph; Gamo, Nao J.; Logsdon, Elizabeth A.; Allen, Robert H.; Durr, Nicholas J.; Luciano, Mark G.; Walch, Philipp; Khoshakhlagh, Parastoo; Zhang, Yu Shrike (Springer US, 2017-10)
    Following the footprints of Bill Gates, Steve Jobs and Mark Zuckerberg, there has been a misconception that students are better off quitting their studies to bring to life their ideas, create jobs and monetize their ...
  • van der Velde, Oscar; Williams, Earle R.; Montanya, Joan (Nature Publishing Group, 2015-10)
    Lightning flashes are known to initiate in regions of strong electric fields inside thunderstorms, between layers of positively and negatively charged precipitation particles. For that reason, lightning inception is typically ...
  • Cheng, Chia-Wei; Yilmaz, Omer (Nature Publishing Group, 2017-01)
    A new study shows that fasting induces the differentiation and elimination of some types of leukemia in mice, which implicates fasting or its mimetics as a novel strategy for the treatment of this disease.
  • Nagakura, Ikue; Van Wart, Audra; Petravicz, Jeremy C.; Tropea, Daniela; Sur, Mriganka; Van Wart, Audra (Society for Neuroscience, 2014-07)
    Accumulating evidence points to a role for Janus kinase/signal transducers and activators of transcription (STAT) immune signaling in neuronal function; however, its role in experience-dependent plasticity is unknown. Here ...
  • Jagannathan, Krishna Prasanna; Mannor, Shie; Menache, Ishai; Modiano, Eytan H. (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2011-06)
    We consider scheduling over a wireless system, where the channel state information is not available a priori to the scheduler, but can be inferred from the past. Specifically, the wireless system is modeled as a network ...
  • Acemoglu, K. Daron; Moscona, Jacob; Robinson, James (American Economic Association, 2016-05)
    Robert Gordon's The Rise and Fall of American Economic Growth compellingly shows how technical innovation, stimulated by the country's institutions, has radically improved the living standards of the citizens of the US. ...
  • Acemoglu, Daron; Robinson, James A.; Garcia-Jimeno, Camilo (American Economic Association, 2015-08)
    We study the direct and spillover effects of local state capacity in Colombia. We model the determination of state capacity as a network game between municipalities and the national government. We estimate this model ...
  • Halassa, Michael M.; Chen, Zhe; Wimmer, Ralf D.; Brunetti, Philip M.; Zhao, Shengli; Zikopoulos, Basilis; Wang, Fan; Brown, Emery N.; Wilson, Matthew A.; Halassa, Michael M.; Wimmer, Ralf D.; Brunetti, Philip M.; Brown, Emery N.; Wilson, Matthew A. (Elsevier, 2014-08)
    Behavioral state is known to influence interactions between thalamus and cortex, which are important for sensation, action, and cognition. The thalamic reticular nucleus (TRN) is hypothesized to regulate thalamo-cortical ...
  • Bry, Adam P.; Bachrach, Abraham Galton; Roy, Nicholas (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2012-05)
    In this paper we present a state estimation method based on an inertial measurement unit (IMU) and a planar laser range finder suitable for use in real-time on a fixed-wing micro air vehicle (MAV). The algorithm is capable ...
  • Jang, Hong; Lee, Jay H.; Braatz, Richard D. (Public Library of Science, 2015-11)
    This paper addresses a problem of estimating time-varying, local concentrations of signal molecules with a carbon-nanotube (CNT)-based sensor array system, which sends signals triggered by monomolecular adsorption/desorption ...
  • Schneider, Toby; Schmidt, Henrik (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2013-10)
    In this paper, a novel technique is presented for using state observers in conjunction with an entropy source encoder to enable highly compressed telemetry of autonomous underwater vehicle (AUV) position vectors. In this ...
  • Hoang, André H.; Kolodrubetz, Daniel W.; Mateu, Vicent; Stewart, Iain W (Elsevier, 2016-05)
    The C-parameter event-shape distribution for e[superscript +]e[superscript −] annihilation into hadrons is computed in the framework of SCET including input from fixed-order perturbation theory. We calculate all missing ...
  • Ghassemi, Marzyeh; Celi, Leo Anthony G.; Stone, David J. (BioMed Central, 2015-03)
    This article is one of ten reviews selected from the Annual Update in Intensive Care and Emergency Medicine 2015 and co-published as a series in Critical Care. Other articles in the series can be found online at ...
  • Ganesan, Anita Lakshmi; Blunden, Jessica; Arndt, Derek; Baringer, M. O. (American Meteorological Society, 2011-06)
    Several large-scale climate patterns influenced climate conditions and weather patterns across the globe during 2010. The transition from a warm El Niño phase at the beginning of the year to a cool La Niña phase by July ...
  • Blunden, Jessica; Arndt, Derek; Heimbach, Patrick (American Meteorological Society, 2013-08)
    For the first time in several years, the El Niño-Southern Oscillation did not dominate regional climate conditions around the globe. A weak La Niña dissipated to ENSO-neutral conditions by spring, and while El Niño appeared ...
  • McDonald, Michael A.; Swinbank, Mark; Edge, Alastair C.; Wilner, David J.; Veilleux, Sylvain; Benson, Bradford A.; Hogan, Michael T.; Marrone, Daniel P.; McNamara, Brian R.; Wei, Lisa H.; Bayliss, Matthew B.; Bautz, Marshall W. (Institute of Physics/American Astronomical Society, 2014-03)
    We present new optical integral field spectroscopy (Gemini South) and submillimeter spectroscopy (Submillimeter Array) of the central galaxy in the Phoenix cluster (SPT-CLJ2344-4243). This cluster was previously reported ...
  • Wang, Jing, 1950- (Taylor & Francis, 2001-12)
    The metonymical association between 'China’ and 'revolution' is a rhetorical game savoured by contemporary China observers. Ironical references in Western press to Chinese 'consumer revolution7 and 'pop cultural revolution, ...
  • Schleier-Smith, Monika Helene; Leroux, Ian Daniel; Vuletic, Vladan (American Physical Society, 2010-02)
    We generate entangled states of an ensemble of 5×10[superscript 4] [superscript 87]Rb atoms by optical quantum nondemolition measurement. The resonator-enhanced measurement leaves the atomic ensemble, prepared in a ...
  • Smith, Anne C.; Scalon, Joao D.; Wirth, Sylvia; Yanike, Marianna; Suzuki, Wendy A.; Brown, Emery N. (Hindawi Publishing, 2010-01)
    The accurate characterization of spike firing rates including the determination of when changes in activity occur is a fundamental issue in the analysis of neurophysiological data. Here we describe a state-space model for ...
  • Shimazaki, Hideaki; Amari, Shun-ichi; Brown, Emery N.; Grun, Sonja (Public Library of Science, 2012-03)
    Precise spike coordination between the spiking activities of multiple neurons is suggested as an indication of coordinated network activity in active cell assemblies. Spike correlation analysis aims to identify such ...
