      The kinesin-3 family member KIF1A has been shown to be important for experience dependent neuroplasticity. In Drosophila, amorphic mutations in the KIF1A homolog unc-104 disrupt the formation of mature boutons. Disease ...
    • Kill Line Model Cross Flow Inline Coupled Vortex-Induced Vibration 

      Wu, Baiheng; Le Garrec, Jorlyn M.; Fan, Dixia; Triantafyllou, Michael S (ASME International, 2017-06)
      Currents and waves cause flow-structure interaction problems in systems installed in the ocean. Particularly for bluff bodies, vortices form in the body wake, which can cause strong structural vibrations (Vortex-Induced ...
    • Kimura-finiteness of quadric fibrations over smooth curves 

      Trigo Neri Tabuada, Goncalo Jorge (Elsevier, 2018-06-01)
      Making use of the recent theory of noncommutative mixed motives, we prove that the Voevodsky's mixed motive of a quadric fibration over a smooth curve is Kimura-finite.
    • “Kind and Grateful”: A Context-Sensitive Smartphone App Utilizing Inspirational Content to Promote Gratitude

      Boning, Peggy; Dubowsky, Steven (SAGE Publications, 2010-08)
      Autonomous space robots will be required for such future missions as the construction of large space structures and repairing disabled satellites. These robots will need to be precisely controlled. However, factors such ...
    • Kinematic bias on centrality selection of jet events in pPb collisions at the LHC 

      Armesto, Nestor; Gulhan, Doga Can; Milhano, Jose Guilherme (Elsevier, 2015-06)
      Centrality selection has been observed to have a large effect on jet observables in pPb collisions at the Large Hadron Collider, stronger than that predicted by the nuclear modification of parton densities. We study to ...
