  • Production of Flexible Transparent Conducting Films of Self-Fused Nanowires via One-Step Supersonic Spraying 

    Lee, J.G.; Kim, D.Y.; Lee, J.H.; Sinha-Ray, S.; Yarin, A.L.; Swihart, M.T.; Kim, D.; Yoon, S.S. (Wiley, 2016-11-11)
    Scalable and economical manufacturing of flexible transparent conducting films (TCF) is a key barrier to widespread adoption of low-cost flexible electronics. Here, a simple, robust, and scalable method of flexible TCF ...
  • A decomposition theorem and two algorithms for reticulation-visible networks 

    Gunawan, Andreas D.M.; DasGupta, Bhaskar; Zhang, Louxin (Elsevier Inc., 2017-02)
    In studies of molecular evolution, phylogenetic trees are rooted binary trees, whereas phy- logenetic networks are rooted acyclic digraphs. Edges are directed away from the root and leaves are uniquely labeled with ...
  • Deception detection in Twitter 

    Mokbel, M.; Ghani, S.; Yu, P.S.; Buy, U.A; Alowibdi, J.S. (Springer Verlag, 2015-01)
    Online Social Networks (OSNs) play a significant role in the daily life of hundreds of millions of people. However, many user profiles in OSNs contain deceptive information. Existing studies have shown that lying in OSNs ...
  • Digital breast tomosynthesis image reconstruction using 2D and 3D total variation minimization 

    Ertas, Metin; Yildirim, Isa; Kamasak, Mustafa; Akan, Aydin (BioMed Central, 2013-10)
    Background Digital breast tomosynthesis (DBT) is an emerging imaging modality which produces three-dimensional radiographic images of breast. DBT reconstructs tomographic images from a limited view angle, thus data acquired ...
  • MOSBIE: a tool for comparison and analysis of rule-based biochemical models 

    Wenskovitch, John E. Jr; Harris, Leonard A.; Tapia, Jose-Juan; Faeder, James R.; Marai, G. Elisabeta (2014)
    Background: Mechanistic models that describe the dynamical behaviors of biochemical systems are common in computational systems biology, especially in the realm of cellular signaling. The development of families of ...
  • The use of a virtual reality surgical simulator for cataract surgical skill assessment with 6 months of intervening operating room experience 

    Sikder, S.; Luo, J.; Banerjee, P.; Luciano, C.; Kania, P.; Song, J.C.; Kahtani, E.S.; Edward, D.P.; Al Towerk, A-E. (Dove Medical Press, 2015-01)
    Purpose: To evaluate a haptic-based simulator, MicroVisTouch™, as an assessment tool for capsulorhexis performance in cataract surgery. The study is a prospective, unmasked, nonrandomized dual academic institution study ...
  • A review of non-renewable energy options in Illinois 

    Agyarko, L. Barnie; Mansoori, G. Ali (Inderscience, 2013-06)
    The State of Illinois has the largest non-renewable (fossil) energy reserves among all the states in the United States. We report our studies on coal, oil and gas energy resources, conversions, consumptions and carbon ...
  • The TranQuyl Language for Data Management in Intelligent Transportation 

    Wolfson, Ouri; Sistla, Prasad; Xu, Bo (Elsevier, 2012-08)
    Intelligent Transportation Systems envision a networked environment consisting of vehicles, the infrastructure, and hand-held devices (e.g., smart-phones). The environment will enable numerous safety, mobility, and ...
  • How Likely Is Speciation in Neutral Ecology? 

    Desjardins-Proulx, Philippe; Gravel, Dominique (University of Chicago Press, 2012-01)
    Patterns of biodiversity predicted by the neutral theory rely on a simple phenomenological model of speciation. To further investigate the effect of speciation on neutral biodiversity, we analyze a spatially explicit ...
  • gMLC: a multi-label feature selection framework for graph classification 

    Kong, Xiangnan; Yu, Philip S. (Springer Verlag, 2012-05)
    Graph classification has been showing critical importance in a wide variety of applications, e.g. drug activity predictions and toxicology analysis. Current research on graph classification focuses on single-label settings. ...
