    • 4-Manifolds With Inequivalent Symplectic Forms and 3-Manifolds With Inequivalent Fibrations 

      McMullen, Curtis T.; Taubes, Clifford H. (International Press, 1999)
      We exhibit a closed, simply connected 4-manifold \(X\) carrying two symplectic structures whose first Chern classes in \(H^2 (X, \mathbb{Z})\) lie in disjoint orbits of the diffeomorphism group of \(X\). Consequently, the ...
    • 4-Phenylbutyrate Attenuates the ER Stress Response and Cyclic AMP Accumulation in DYT1 Dystonia Cell Models 

      Cho, Jin A.; Zhang, Xuan; Miller, Gregory M.; Lencer, Wayne I.; Nery, Flavia C. (Public Library of Science, 2014)
      Dystonia is a neurological disorder in which sustained muscle contractions induce twisting and repetitive movements or abnormal posturing. DYT1 early-onset primary dystonia is the most common form of hereditary dystonia ...
    • The 4.5 µm full-orbit phase curve of the hot Jupiter HD 209458B 

      Zellem, Robert T.; Lewis, Nikole K.; Knutson, Heather A.; Griffith, Caitlin A.; Showman, Adam P.; Fortney, Jonathan J.; Cowan, Nicolas B.; Agol, Eric; Burrows, Adam; Charbonneau, David; Deming, Drake; Laughlin, Gregory; Langton, Jonathan (IOP Publishing, 2014)
      The hot Jupiter HD 209458b is particularly amenable to detailed study as it is among the brightest transiting exoplanet systems currently known (V-mag = 7.65; K-mag = 6.308) and has a large planet-to-star contrast ratio. ...
    • 4He Liquid-Vapor Interface Below 1 K Studied Using X-Ray Reflectivity 

      Penanen, Konstantin; Fukuto, Masafumi; Heilmann, Ralf K.; Silvera, Isaac F.; Pershan, Peter S. (American Physical Society, 2000)
      The free surface of thin films of liquid helium adsorbed on a solid substrate has been studied using x-ray reflectivity. The film thickness and interfacial profile are extracted from the angular dependence of measured ...
    • A 65 k.y. Time Series From Sediment-Hosted Glasses Reveals Rapid Transitions in Ocean Ridge Magmas 

      Ferguson, David; Li, Yinqi; Langmuir, Charles; Costa, Kassandra; McManus, Jerry; Huybers, Peter; Corbotte, Suzanne (Geological Society of America, 2017)
      Studies of ocean ridge magmatism have been hampered by the difficulty in constructing time-series data over more than a few thousand years. Sediment rapidly covers newly formed ocean crust, and older rocks, even when ...
    • 6d Conformal matter 

      Del Zotto, Michele; Heckman, Jonathan J.; Tomasiello, Alessandro; Vafa, Cumrun (Springer Verlag, 2015)
      A single M5-brane probing G, an ADE-type singularity, leads to a system which has G x G global symmetry and can be viewed as "bifundamental" (C, C) matter. For the AN series, this leads to the usual notion of bifundamental ...
