  • Bergelson, E; Swingley, D (2012-02-28)
    It is widely accepted that infants begin learning their native language not by learning words, but by discovering features of the speech signal: consonants, vowels, and combinations of these sounds. Learning to understand ...
  • Bluck, S; Alea, N; Habermas, T; Rubin, DC (2005-02-01)
    Theories hold that autobiographical memory serves several broad functions (directive, self, and social). In the current study, items were derived from the theoretical literature to create the Thinking About Life Experiences ...
  • Lefkowitz, RJ (2011-10)
  • Jaffe, AB; Newell, RG; Stavins, RN (2005-08-01)
    Market failures associated with environmental pollution interact with market failures associated with the innovation and diffusion of new technologies. These combined market failures provide a strong rationale for a portfolio ...
  • Rao, Yanhua (2013)
    <p>Primary cilia are evolutionarily conserved, acetylated microtubule-based organelles that transduce mechanical and chemical signals. Primary cilium assembly is tightly controlled and its deregulation causes a spectrum ...
  • Kranton, RE; Minehart, DF (2001-06-01)
    This paper introduces a new model of exchange: networks, rather than markets, of buyers and sellers. It begins with the empirically motivated premise that a buyer and seller must have a relationship, a "link," to exchange ...
  • Hairer, M; Mattingly, JC (2011-05-09)
    We present a theory of hypoellipticity and unique ergodicity for semilinear parabolic stochastic PDEs with "polynomial" nonlinearities and additive noise, considered as abstract evolution equations in some Hilbert space. ...
  • Paskalev, Z; Yildirim, H (2014-12-06)
    Charities frequently rely on professional solicitors whose commissions exceed half of total donations. To understand this practice, we propose a principal-agent model in which the charity optimally offers a higher commission ...
  • Dillenberger, D; Lleras, J; Sadowski, Philipp; Takeoka, N (2012-08-31)
    We study an individual who faces a dynamic decision problem in which the process of information arrival is unobserved by the analyst. We derive two utility representations of preferences over menus of acts that capture the ...
  • Dillenberger, D; Lleras, JS; Sadowski, P; Takeoka, N (2014-01-01)
    We study an individual who faces a dynamic decision problem in which the process of information arrival is unobserved by the analyst. We elicit subjective information directly from choice behavior by deriving two utility ...
  • Bushey, RT; Moody, MA; Nicely, NL; Haynes, BF; Alam, SM; Keir, ST; Bentley, RC; Roy Choudhury, K; Gottlin, EB; Campa, MJ; Liao, HX; Patz, EF (2016-05-17)
    Some patients with cancer never develop metastasis, and their host response might provide cues for innovative treatment strategies. We previously reported an association between autoantibodies against complement factor H ...
  • Goldberg, JS (2011-12-01)
    This paper proposes that atherosclerosis is initiated by a signaling event that deposits calcium hydroxyapatite (Ca-HAP). This event is preceded by a loss of mechanical structure in the arterial wall. After Ca-HAP has been ...
  • Mendes, Lexi (2016-01-23)
    This thesis examines the academic and athletic priorities of collegiate student-athletes, using Duke University as a case study. Analyses of information collected through online surveys (N= 151) and in-person interviews ...
  • Boone, Leighanne (2013-04-18)
    Offshore wind is a resource with tremendous potential to power our nation’s energy demand while significantly reducing our country’s carbon emissions. However, wind energy can pose a threat to local habitats. This study ...
  • Crosskey, Miles Martin (2014)
    <p>When simulating multiscale stochastic differential equations (SDEs) in high-dimensions, separation of timescales and high-dimensionality can make simulations expensive. The computational cost is dictated by microscale ...

    We present a search for nonzero θ13 and deviations of sin2θ23 from 0.5 in the oscillations of atmospheric neutrino data from Super-Kamiokande I, II, and III. No distortions of the neutrino flux consistent with nonzero θ13 ...
  • Peng, Q; Lewis, JS; Hoertz, PG; Glass, JT; Parsons, GN (2012-01-01)
    Clean renewable energy sources (e.g., solar, wind, and hydro) offers the most promising solution to energy and environmental sustainability. On the other hand, owing to the spatial and temporal variations of renewable ...
