Intrusion rheology in grains and other flowable materials
(Springer Nature, 201608)The interaction of intruding objects with deformable materials arises in many contexts, including locomotion in fluids and loose media, impact and penetration problems, and geospace applications. Despite the complex ... 
An intuitive daylighting performance analysis and optimization approach
(Taylor & Francis Group, 200810)The effective integration of daylighting considerations into the design process requires many issues to be considered simultaneously, such as daily and seasonal variations, illumination, and thermal comfort. To address the ... 
The Invariance Hypothesis Implies DomainSpecific Regions in Visual Cortex
(Public Library of Science, 201510)Is visual cortex made up of generalpurpose information processing machinery, or does it consist of a collection of specialized modules? If prior knowledge, acquired from learning a set of objects is only transferable to ... 
Invariance to representation of information
(Elsevier, 201510)Under weak assumptions on the solution concept, I construct an invariant selection across all finite type spaces, in which the types with identical information play the same action. Along the way, I establish an interesting ... 
Invariant Hopf 2Cocycles for Affine Algebraic Groups
(Oxford University Press (OUP), 201803)We generalize the theory of the second invariant cohomology group H[superscript 2][subscript inv](G) for finite groups G, developed in [3, 4, 14], to the case of affine algebraic groups G, using the methods of [9, 10, 12]. ... 
Invariant Mass Distribution of Jet Pairs Produced in Association with a W Boson in p[overbar p] Collisions at [sqrt]s=1.96 TeV
(American Physical Society, 201104)We report a study of the invariant mass distribution of jet pairs produced in association with a W boson using data collected with the CDF detector which correspond to an integrated luminosity of 4.3 fb[superscript 1]. ... 
An Invariant of Topologically Ordered States Under Local Unitary Transformations
(Springer Berlin Heidelberg, 201602)For an anyon model in two spatial dimensions described by a modular tensor category, the topological Smatrix encodes the mutual braiding statistics, the quantum dimensions, and the fusion rules of anyons. It is nontrivial ... 
Invariant recognition drives neural representations of action sequences
(Public Library of Science, 201710)Recognizing the actions of others from visual stimuli is a crucial aspect of human perception that allows individuals to respond to social cues. Humans are able to discriminate between similar actions despite transformations, ... 
Invariant Solutions to the Strominger System on Complex Lie Groups and Their Quotients
(Springer Berlin Heidelberg, 201505)Using canonical 1parameter family of Hermitian connections on the tangent bundle, we provide invariant solutions to the Strominger system on certain complex Lie groups and their quotients. Both flat and nonflat cases are ... 
Invariant weighted Wiener measures and almost sure global wellposedness for the periodic derivative NLS
(European Mathematical Society Publishing House, 2012)We construct an invariant weighted Wiener measure associated to the periodic derivative nonlinear Schrödinger equation in one dimension and establish global wellposedness for data living in its support. In particular ... 
InvariantMass Distribution of Jet Pairs Produced in Association with a W Boson in p[bar over p] Collisions at √s = 1.96 TeV Using the Full CDF Run II Data Set
(American Physical Society, 201405)We report on a study of the dijet invariantmass distribution in events with one identified lepton, a significant imbalance in the total event transverse momentum, and two jets. This distribution is sensitive to the possible ... 
Invariantist ‘might’ and modal meaning change
(201307)Invariantism proposed by Braun (Linguistics and Philosophy 35(6):461–489, 2012) aims to maintain full identity of semantic content between all uses of ‘might’. I invoke wellknown facts regarding diachronic change in ... 
Invariants of Hamiltonian flow on locally complete intersections
(SpringerVerlag, 201409)We consider the Hamiltonian flow on complex complete intersection surfaces with isolated singularities, equipped with the Jacobian Poisson structure. More generally we consider complete intersections of arbitrary dimension ... 
Invasion/Invasive
(Duke University Press, 201705)My garden is being invaded by Japanese knotweed, as are those of my neighbors and those of many people who live in other places far from its native East Asia. I keep it more or less under control by eliminating individual ... 
Invasive and Introduced Plants and Animals: Human Perceptions, Attitudes and Approaches to Management (Book review)
(Oxford University Press, 201207)The essays collected in this fascinating compendium are very diverse. They deal with most continents and several time periods. Their authors represent the fields of history, biology, economics, forestry, anthropology, ... 
Invasive breast carcinoma cells from patients exhibit Mena[superscript INV] and macrophagedependent transendothelial migration
(American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS), 201411)Metastasis is a complex, multistep process of cancer progression that has few treatment options. A critical event is the invasion of cancer cells into blood vessels (intravasation), through which cancer cells disseminate ... 
Inventory Management in a Consumer Electronics ClosedLoop Supply Chain
(Institute for Operations Research and the Management Sciences (INFORMS), 201704)The goal of this paper is to describe, model, and optimize inventory in a reverse logistics system that supports the warranty returns and replacements for a consumer electronic device. The context and motivation for this ... 
Inverse Covariance Estimation for HighDimensional Data in Linear Time and Space: Spectral Methods for Riccati and Sparse Models
(Association for Uncertainty in Artificial Intelligence (AUAI), 201307)We propose maximum likelihood estimation for learning Gaussian graphical models with a Gaussian (ℓ[2 over 2]) prior on the parameters. This is in contrast to the commonly used Laplace (ℓ[subscript 1) prior for encouraging ... 
Inverse design of largearea metasurfaces
(Optical Society of America, 201812)We present a computational framework for efficient optimizationbased “inverse design” of largearea “metasurfaces” (subwavelengthpatterned surfaces) for applications such as multiwavelength/multiangle optimizations, ... 
Inverse Designed Metalenses with Extended Depth of Focus
(American Chemical Society (ACS), 202003)Extended depth of focus (EDOF) lenses are important for various applications in computational imaging and microscopy. In addition to enabling novel functionalities, EDOF lenses can alleviate the need for stringent alignment ...
