    • KOI-3158: The oldest known system of terrestrial-size planets 

      Campante, Tiago L.; Barclay, Thomas S.; Swift, Jonathan J.; Huber, Daniel; Adibekyan, V. Zh.; Cochran, William D.; Burke, Christopher J.; Isaacson, Howard T.; Quintana, Elisa V.; Ragozzine, Darin A. (2015-09-23)
      The first discoveries of exoplanets around Sun-like stars have fueled efforts to find ever smaller worlds evocative of Earth and other terrestrial planets in the Solar System. While gas-giant planets appear to form ...

    • The Kolmogorov equation with time-measurable coefficients 

      Kovats, Jay (2003-07-13)
      Using both probabilistic and classical analytic techniques, we investigate the parabolic Kolmogorov equation $$ L_t v +\frac {\partial v}{\partial t}\equiv \frac 12 a^{ij}(t)v_{x^ix^j} +b^i(t) v_{x^i} -c(t) v+ f(t) ...
    • Lactose variability of Escherichia coli in thermally stressed reactor effluent waters 

      Kasweck, K. L.; Fliermans, Carl B. (1978)
      Lactose-utilizing and nalidixic acid-resistant populations of Escherichia coli, having an optimum growth temperature of 37°C, were placed in modified diffusion chambers. The chambers were submerged in the epilimnion and ...

      This paper, written in honor of the 70th birthday of Lajos Takács, addresses his life and work, and includes some personal observations and appreciation of his contributions. In particular, it includes a short biography, ...
    • Language Relations on Twitter: A Network Science Approach 

      Saha, Priya (2017-04)
      Online social networks (e.g., Twitter and Facebook) play a vital role in the spreading of information in today’s world. Interestingly, the spread of information is enabled by the existence of an underlying connectivity ...
    • Late Holocene Climate and Vegetation Change in Central Michigan 

      Sales, Rachel K (2017-05)
      Understanding the effects of drought and temperature change on eastern North America will be key in the context of future climate change. Perhaps the best method to understand how drought and temperature will impact this ...
    • Lateral and Torsional Seismic Vibration Control for Torsionally Irregular Buildings 

      Akyϋrek, Osman (2019-05)
      During strong earthquakes or wind gusts, it is likely that buildings with torsional irregularity in the plan have an can be seriously damaged, partially collapsed or fully collapsed. This is because Torsionally Irregular ...
    • Layered analytical radiative transfer model for simulating water color of coastal waters and algorithm development 

      Bostater, Charles R.; Huddleston, Lisa H. (2000-12-22)
      A remote sensing reflectance model, which describes the transfer of irradiant light within a homogeneous water column has previously been used to simulate the nadir viewing reflectance just above or below the water surface ...
    • Layered unequal loss protection for image transmission over packet loss channels with delay constraints 

      Cai, Jianfei; Li, Xiangjun; Chen, Chang Wen (2004-10-25)
      In the case of high bit rate image transmission or having lots of packets, the FEC (forward error correction) encoding and decoding processes in the ULP (unequal loss protection) based schemes should be applied to individual ...
    • Layered unequal loss protection for progressive image transmission over packet loss channels 

      Cai, Jianfei; Li, Xiangjun; Chen, Chang Wen (2004-01-18)
      In the past, many schemes have been proposed for progressive image transmission using unequal error protection (UEP) or unequal loss protection (ULP). However, most existing UEP/ULP schemes do not consider the minimum image ...
    • Leader Emotion Management Behavior and Perceived Leader Effectiveness: The Moderating Roles of Gender and Culture 

      Fischer, Julianna (2016-12)
      A key aspect of successful management includes a leader’s responsibility to manage employees’ emotions (Leavitt & Bahrami, 1988). This form of management can be reflected in a number of behaviors, such as demonstrating ...

    • Learning implicit user interest hierarchy for context in personalization 

      Kim, Hyoung-Rae; Chan, Philip K. (2002-10-05)
      To provide a more robust context for personalization, we desire to extract a continuum of general (long-term) to specific (short-term) interests of a user. Our proposed approach is to learn a user interest hierarchy (UIH) ...
    • Learning implicit user interest hierarchy for web personalization 

      Kim, Hyoung-Rae (2005-04-19)
      Most web search engines are designed to serve all users in a general way, without considering the interests of individual users. In contrast, personalized web search engines incorporate an individual user's interests when ...
    • Learning Meaningful Representations of Surgical Motion Without Annotations

    • Learning models of network traffic for detecting novel attacks 

      Mahoney, Matthew V.; Chan, Philip K. (2002-05-24)
      Network intrusion detection systems often rely on matching patterns that are gleaned from known attacks. While this method is reliable and rarely produces false alarms, it has the obvious disadvantage that it cannot detect ...
