• #### Digital Publishing: A Home for Faculty in the Library -- Exercises in Innovation from Harvard Law School ﻿

(2018-02-22)
As libraries continue transforming through the digital age, we are faced with a familiar opportunity for renewal: the deepening of the faculty-library relationship -- this time in a digital framework. Instead of simply ...
• #### Digital Quantum Simulation of the Statistical Mechanics of a Frustrated Magnet ﻿

(Nature Publishing Group, 2012)
Many problems of interest in physics, chemistry and computer science are equivalent to problems defined on systems of interacting spins. However, most such problems require computational resources that are out of reach ...
• #### Digital RNA allelotyping reveals tissue-specific and allele-specific gene expression in human ﻿

(Nature Publishing Group, 2009)
We developed a digital RNA allelotyping method for quantitatively interrogating allele-specific gene expression. This method involves ultra-deep sequencing of padlock captured SNPs from the transcriptome. We characterized ...
• #### Digital RNA Sequencing Minimizes Sequence-Dependent Bias and Amplification Noise with Optimized Single-Molecule Barcodes ﻿

(Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, 2012)
RNA sequencing (RNA-Seq) is a powerful tool for transcriptome profiling, but is hampered by sequence-dependent bias and inaccuracy at low copy numbers intrinsic to exponential PCR amplification. We developed a simple ...
• #### Dignifying the Guerrillero, Not the Assassin: Rewriting a History of Criminal Subversion in Postwar Guatemala ﻿

(Duke University Press, 2012)
This article examines an understudied aspect of Guatemala's Cold War counter-insurgency campaign: the concerted effort to destroy the seeds of oppositional thinking by criminalizing any and all forms of dissent, both during ...
• #### Dijet production in s√=7 TeV pp collisions with large rapidity gaps at the ATLAS experiment ﻿

(Elsevier BV, 2016)
A 6.8 nb−1 sample of pp collision data collected under low-luminosity conditions at s√=7 TeV by the ATLAS detector at the Large Hadron Collider is used to study diffractive dijet production. Events containing at least two ...
• #### Dijet Searches for Supersymmetry at the Large Hadron Collider ﻿

(American Physical Society, 2008)
We present several strategies for searching for supersymmetry in dijet channels that do not explicitly invoke missing energy. Preliminary investigations suggest that signal-to-background ratios of at least 4--5 should be ...
• #### Dilatant Strengthening as a Mechanism for Slow Slip Events ﻿

(American Geophysical Union, 2010)
The mechanics of slow slip events (SSE) in subduction zones remain unresolved. We suggest that SSE nucleate in areas of unstable friction under drained conditions, but as slip accelerates dilatancy reduces pore pressure ...
• #### Dimensions of Liberal Self-Satisfaction: Civil Liberties, Liberal Theory, and Elite-Mass Differences ﻿

(University of Chicago Press, 1986)
• #### Dimethyl Sulfoxide (DMSO) Exacerbates Cisplatin-induced Sensory Hair Cell Death in Zebrafish (Danio rerio) ﻿

(Public Library of Science, 2013)
Inner ear sensory hair cells die following exposure to aminoglycoside antibiotics or chemotherapeutics like cisplatin, leading to permanent auditory and/or balance deficits in humans. Zebrafish (Danio rerio) are used to ...
• #### Dimetrodon: Processor-level Preventive Thermal Management via Idle Cycle Injection ﻿

(ACM, 2011)
Processor-level dynamic thermal management techniques have long targeted worst-case thermal margins. We examine the thermal-performance trade-offs in average-case, preventive thermal management by actively degrading ...
• #### Diminished Schwann Cell Repair Responses Underlie Age-Associated Impaired Axonal Regeneration ﻿

(Elsevier BV, 2014)
The regenerative capacity of the peripheral nervous system declines with age. Why this occurs, however, is unknown. We demonstrate that 24-month-old mice exhibit an impairment of functional recovery after nerve injury ...
• #### Diminishing Returns Epistasis Among Beneficial Mutations Decelerates Adaptation ﻿

(American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS), 2011)
Epistasis has substantial impacts on evolution, in particular, the rate of adaptation. We generated combinations of beneficial mutations that arose in a lineage during rapid adaptation of a bacterium whose growth depended ...
• #### Dimpled elastic sheets: a new class of non-porous negative Poisson’s ratio materials ﻿

(Nature Publishing Group, 2015)
In this study, we report a novel periodic material with negative Poisson’s ratio (also called auxetic materials) fabricated by denting spherical dimples in an elastic flat sheet. While previously reported auxetic materials ...
• #### A Dinuclear Palladium Catalyst for $\alpha$-Hydroxylation of Carbonyls with $O_2$ ﻿

(American Chemical Society, 2011)
A chemo- and regioselective $\alpha$-hydroxylation reaction of carbonyl compounds with molecular oxygen as oxidant is reported. The hydroxylation reaction is catalyzed by a dinuclear Pd(II) complex, which functions as ...
• #### Diophantine and Ergodic Foliations on Surfaces ﻿

(Oxford University Press, 2012-11-16)
• #### A diphoton resonance from bulk RS ﻿

(Springer Nature, 2016)
Recent LHC data hinted at a 750 GeV mass resonance that decays into two photons. A significant feature of this resonance is that its decays to any other Standard Model particles would be too low to be detected so far. Such ...
• #### The Direct and Ecological Costs of an Ant-Plant Symbiosis ﻿

(University of Chicago Press, 2012)
How strong is selection for cheating in mutualisms? The answer depends on the type and magnitude of the costs of the mutualism. Here we investigated the direct and ecological costs of plant defense by ants in the association ...
• #### Direct and indirect forms of non-suicidal self-injury: Evidence for a distinction ﻿

(Elsevier BV, 2012)
Non-suicidal self-injury (NSSI) involves deliberate acts (such as cutting) that directly damage the body but occur without suicidal intent. However, other non-suicidal behaviors that involve people mistreating or abusing ...
• #### A Direct Comparison of Scan and Focal Sampling Methods for Measuring Wild Chimpanzee Feeding Behaviour ﻿

(Karger, 2010)
Focal sampling is the most accurate method for measuring primate activity budgets, but is sometimes impractical. An alternative is scan sampling, in which the behaviour of the group is recorded at regular intervals. The ...
