  • Pinto, Pedro C.; Barros, Joao; Win, Moe Z. (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2011-02)
    The ability to exchange secret information is critical to many commercial, governmental, and military networks. The intrinsically secure communications graph (iS-graph) is a random graph which describes the connections ...
  • Moghaddam, Mahta; Entekhabi, Dara; Goykhman, Yuriy; Li, Ke; Liu, Mingyan; Mahajan, Aditya; Nayyar, Ashutosh; Shuman, David; Teneketzis, Demosthenis (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2010-12)
    This paper introduces a new concept for a smart wireless sensor web technology for optimal measurements of surface-to-depth profiles of soil moisture using in-situ sensors. The objective of the technology, supported by the ...
  • Hinterwirth, Armin J.; Medina, Billie; Lockey, Jacob; Otten, David M.; Voldman, Joel; Lang, Jeffrey H.; Hildebrand, John G.; Daniel, Tom L. (Public Library of Science, 2012-12)
    Insect antennae are sensory organs involved in a variety of behaviors, sensing many different stimulus modalities. As mechanosensors, they are crucial for flight control in the hawkmoth Manduca sexta. One of their roles ...
  • Schnorr, Jan Markus; Swager, Timothy Manning (Royal Society of Chemistry, 2011-02)
    Highly water soluble sulfonate MWCNTs were synthesized and could be used to facilitate the electron transfer between Pd and Cu in a Wacker-type oxidation in solution.
  • Marbach, Daniel; Holmes, Benjamin Ray; Kellis, Manolis; DREAM5 Consortium (Nature Publishing Group, 2012-07)
    Reconstructing gene regulatory networks from high-throughput data is a long-standing challenge. Through the Dialogue on Reverse Engineering Assessment and Methods (DREAM) project, we performed a comprehensive blind assessment ...
  • Azar, Pablo Daniel; Lo, Andrew W (Institutional Investor Journals, 2016-05)
    With the rise of social media, investors have a new tool for measuring sentiment in real time. However, the nature of these data sources raises serious questions about its quality. Because anyone on social media can ...
  • Barnes, Stuart I.; Buchhave, Lars A.; Phillips, David; Shectman, Stephen; Walsworth, Ronald; Furesz, Gabor; Simcoe, Robert A; Egan, Mark; Foster, Richard F; Hellickson, Timothy H; Malonis, Andrew C.; Winn, Joshua N.; Woods, Deborah F. (Society of Photo-Optical Instrumentation Engineers (SPIE), 2016-06)
    The Kepler mission highlighted that precision radial velocity (PRV) follow-up is a real bottleneck in supporting transiting exoplanet surveys. The limited availability of PRV instruments, and the desire to break the “1 ...
  • Newton, Ryan; Toledo, Sivan; Girod, Lewis D.; Balakrishnan, Hari; Madden, Samuel R. (USENIX Association, 2009-01)
    The ability to partition sensor network application code across sensor nodes and backend servers is important for running complex, data-intensive applications on sensor platforms that have CPU, energy, and bandwidth ...
  • Fader, Sarah; Yanagawa, Yuchio; Lee, Charles; Imaizumi, Kazuo (MDPI AG, 2016-04)
    Perineuronal nets (PNNs) are specialized extracellular matrix molecules that are associated with the closing of the critical period, among other functions. In the adult brain, PNNs surround specific types of neurons, however ...
  • James, Erica C. (Wiley Blackwell, 2012-02)
    In this article I discuss the unintended consequences of humanitarian and development assistance provided to “victims of human rights abuses” in Haiti in the years following the restoration of democracy in 1994. Such ...
  • Battaglia, Peter W.; Kersten, Daniel; Machulla, Tonja; Schrater, Paul R.; Ernst, Marc O.; Di Luca, Massimiliano (Public Library of Science, 2010-01)
    Perception is fundamentally underconstrained because different combinations of object properties can generate the same sensory information. To disambiguate sensory information into estimates of scene properties, our brains ...
  • Bucciarelli, Louis; Earl, Chris; Eckert, Claudia; Blackwell, Alan (MIT Press Journals, 2009-02)
    This research is concerned with describing the experience of being a designer and doing design. Many case studies have described individual experiences, both of designers reflecting on their own work, and academic studies ...
  • Trigo Neri Tabuada, Goncalo Jorge (Springer Berlin Heidelberg, 2013-06)
    We prove that the functor ring-of-rational-Witt-vectors W[subscript 0](−) becomes co-representable in the category of noncommutative motives. As an application, we obtain an immediate extension of W[subscript 0](−) from ...
  • Sternberg, Paul W.; Horvitz, H. Robert; Ferguson, Edwin L.; Herman, Michael A.; Seah, Adeline; Yu, Hui (Elsevier, 2008-12)
    Comparative studies of vulva development between Caenorhabditis elegans and other nematode species have provided some insight into the evolution of patterning networks. However, molecular genetic details are available ...
  • Petersen, Christian P.; Reddien, Peter (Elsevier, 2009-12)
    How animals establish and pattern the primary body axis is one of the most fundamental problems in biology. Data from diverse deuterostomes (frog, fish, mouse, and amphioxus) and from planarians (protostomes) suggest that ...
  • Maguschak, Kimberly A.; Ressler, Kerry J. (Society for Neuroscience, 2011-09)
    In addition to its role in cellular development and proliferation, there are emerging in vitro data implicating the Wnt/β-catenin pathway in synaptic plasticity. Yet in vivo studies have not examined whether Wnt activity ...
  • McKinley, Gareth H.; Renardy, Michael (American Institute of Physics (AIP), 2011-12)
    This manuscript got started when one of us (G.H.M.) presented a lecture at the Institute of Mathematics and its Applications at the University of Minnesota. The presentation included a photograph of Rayleigh and made ...
  • Casas-Arce, Pablo; Saiz, Albert (University of Chicago Press, 2015-06)
    We use Spain’s Equality Law to test for the existence of agency problems between party leaders and their constituents. The law mandates a 40 percent female quota on electoral lists in towns with populations above 5,000. ...
  • Duflo, Esther (American Economic Association, 2012-12)
    Women empowerment and economic development are closely related: in one direction, development alone can play a major role in driving down inequality between men and women; in the other direction, empowering women may benefit ...
  • Gibson, Lorna (Wiley Blackwell (Blackwell Publishing), 2006-06)
    Woodpeckers are capable of repeated pecking on a tree at remarkably high decelerations (on the order of 10 000 m s−2 or 1000 g). In this paper, I re-examine previous studies of pecking and scaling effects in brain injury. ...
