The Boston University Open Access Articles collection contains scholarly publications written by Boston University faculty. This collection primarily consists of scholarly journal articles and published conference proceedings but open access book chapters, reviews, white papers, conference abstracts, and technical reports are also included. These publications are made available in OpenBU, Boston University’s Open Access Institutional Repository under the provisions of the Boston University Open Access Policy or by other arrangement. Note: Some works in this collection are not currently in open access, and are embargoed at the author's request.

Publications in Boston University’s Open Access collection are primarily one of three versions:

  • First Author Draft. This is the author's manuscript prior to formal peer review.
  • Accepted Manuscript. This is the version that exists after peer review, but before final copy editing and publisher formatting. Note: This is NOT publisher proofs.
  • Published Version. This is the final version that appeared in a formal publication such as a peer-reviewed journal, book, or published conference proceeding.

Citations are always given to the final published version, which may differ from the version made available in the repository. Wherever possible, a link or DOI to the final version is provided.

  • Transverse spin diffusion in a dilute spin-polarized degenerate Fermi gas 

    Golosov, D. I.; Ruckenstein, A. E. (SPRINGER/PLENUM PUBLISHERS, 1998-08-01)
    We re-examine the calculation of the transverse spin-diffusion coefficient in a dilute degenerate spin-polarized Fermi gas, for the case of s-wave scattering. The special feature of this limit is that the dependence of the ...
  • Carbon fiber on polyimide ultra-microelectrodes 

    Otchy, Timothy; Gillis, Winthrop F.; Lissandrello, Charles A.; Shen, Jun; Pearre, Ben W.; Mertiri, Alket; Deku, Felix; Cogan, Stuart; Holinski, Bradley J.; Chew, Daniel J.; White, Alice E.; Gardner, Timothy (IOP Publishing, 2018-01-08)
    OBJECTIVE: Most preparations for making neural recordings degrade over time and eventually fail due to insertion trauma and reactive tissue response. The magnitudes of these responses are thought to be related to the ...
  • Differentially private model selection with penalized and constrained likelihood 

    Lei, Jing; Charest, Anne-Sophie; Slavkovic, Aleksandra; Smith, Adam; Fienberg, Stephen (Wiley, 2018-06)
    Summary: In statistical disclosure control, the goal of data analysis is twofold: the information released must provide accurate and useful statistics about the underlying population of interest, while minimizing the ...
  • Fast micron-scale 3D printing with a resonant-scanning two-photon microscope 

    Pearre, Ben; Michas, Christis; Tsang, Jean-Marc; Gardner, Tim; Otchy, Timothy (2018-02-26)
    3D printing allows rapid fabrication of complex objects from digital designs. One 3D-printing process, direct laser writing, polymerises a light-sensitive material by steering a focused laser beam through the shape of the ...
  • Measuring the signal-to-noise ratio of a neuron 

    Czanner, Gabriela; Sarma, Sridevi V.; Ba, Demba; Eden, Uri T.; Wu, Wei; Eskandar, Emad; Lim, Hubert H.; Temereanca, Simona; Suzuki, Wendy A.; Brown, Emery N. (NATL ACAD SCIENCES, 2015-06-09)
    The signal-to-noise ratio (SNR), a commonly used measure of fidelity in physical systems, is defined as the ratio of the squared amplitude or variance of a signal relative to the variance of the noise. This definition is ...
  • Squeezing in the weakly interacting uniform Bose-Einstein condensate 

    Haque, Masudul; Ruckenstein, Andrei E. (AMERICAN PHYSICAL SOC, 2006-10-01)
    We investigate the presence of squeezing in the weakly repulsive uniform Bose gas, in both the condensate mode and in the nonzero opposite-momenta mode pairs, using two different variational formulations. We explore the ...
  • Optimal path to epigenetic switching 

    Roma, D. M.; O'Flanagan, R. A.; Ruckenstein, A. E.; Sengupta, A. M.; Mukhopadhyay, R. (AMERICAN PHYSICAL SOC, 2005-01-01)
    We use large deviation methods to calculate rates of noise-induced transitions between states in multistable genetic networks. We analyze a synthetic biochemical circuit, the toggle switch, and compare the results to those ...
  • Transition temperature of dilute, weakly repulsive Bose gas 

    Haque, Masudul; Ruckenstein, Andrei E. (2002-12-25)
    Within a quasiparticle framework, we reconsider the issue of computing the Bose-Einstein condensation temperature (T_c) in a weakly non-ideal Bose gas. The main result of this and previous investigations is that T_c increases ...
  • Charge-gap and spin-gap formation in exactly solvable Hubbard chains with long-range hopping 

    We discuss the transition from a metal to charge- or spin-insulating phases characterized by the opening of a gap in the charge- or spin-excitation spectra, respectively. These transitions are addressed within the context ...
  • Quantum vertex model for reversible classical computing 

    Chamon, C.; Mucciolo, E. R.; Ruckenstein, A. E.; Yang, Z-C (NATURE PUBLISHING GROUP, 2017-05-12)
    Mappings of classical computation onto statistical mechanics models have led to remarkable successes in addressing some complex computational problems. However, such mappings display thermodynamic phase transitions that ...
