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.

  • The Boson peak in supercooled water 

    Kumar, Pradeep; Wikfeldt, K. Thor; Schlesinger, Daniel; Pettersson, Lars G. M.; Stanley, Harry Eugene (NATURE PUBLISHING GROUP, 2013-06-17)
    We perform extensive molecular dynamics simulations of the TIP4P/2005 model of water to investigate the origin of the Boson peak reported in experiments on supercooled water in nanoconfined pores and in hydration water ...
  • Strong and weak CP violation in technicolor 

    Lane, Kenneth D. (RINTON PRESS, INC, 2001-01-01)
    I discuss vacuum alignment and CP violation in technicolor theories of electroweak and flavor symmetry breaking. I review the surprising appearance of rational phase solutions in the technifermion sector and propose a ...
  • Technicolor 

    Lane, Kenneth D. (PLENUM PRESS DIV PLENUM PUBLISHING CORP, 1996-01-01)
    Technicolor, with extended technicolor, is the theory of dynamical electroweak and flavor symmetry breaking at energies far below the Planck scale. To motivate it, I describe the most important difficulties of the standard ...
  • Top quark production and flavor physics 

    Lane, Kenneth D. (IOP PUBLISHING LTD, 1995-01-01)
    Because of the top quark’s very large mass, about 175 GeV, it now provides the best window into flavor physics. Thus, pair–production of top quarks at the Tevatron Collider is the best probe of this physics until the ...
  • Technicolor and the First Muon Collider 

    Lane, Kenneth D. (AMER INST PHYSICS, 1998-01-01)
    The motivations for studying dynamical scenarios of electroweak and flavor symmetry breaking are reviewed and the latest ideas, especially topcolor-assisted technicolor, are summarized. Technicolor’s observable low-energy ...
  • B-meson gateways to missing charmonium levels 

    Eichten, E. J.; Lane, Kenneth D.; Quigg, C. (AMER PHYSICAL SOC, 2002-10-14)
    We outline a coherent strategy for exploring the four remaining narrow charmonium states [η′c(21S0), hc(1^1P1), ηc2(1^1D2), and ψ2(1^3D2)] expected to lie below charm threshold. Produced in B-meson decays, these levels ...
  • Parietal low beta rhythm provides a dynamical substrate for a working memory buffer 

    Gelastopoulos, Alexandros; Whittington, Miles A.; Kopell, Nancy J. (2019-08-13)
    Working memory (WM) is a component of the brain's memory systems vital for interpretation of sequential sensory inputs and consequent decision making. Anatomically, WM is highly distributed over the prefrontal cortex (PFC) ...
  • When a text Is translated does the complexity of Its vocabulary change? Translations and target readerships 

    Aragao Rego, Henio Henrique; Braunstein, Lidia A.; D'Agostino, Gregorio; Stanley, Harry Eugene; Miyazima, Sasuke (PUBLIC LIBRARY SCIENCE, 2014-10-29)
    In linguistic studies, the academic level of the vocabulary in a text can be described in terms of statistical physics by using a “temperature” concept related to the text's word-frequency distribution. We propose a ...
  • The competitiveness versus the wealth of a country 

    Podobnik, Boris; Horvatic, Davor; Kenett, Dror Y.; Stanley, H. Eugene (Nature Publishing Group, 2012-09-20)
    Politicians world-wide frequently promise a better life for their citizens. We find that the probability that a country will increase its per capita GDP (gdp) rank within a decade follows an exponential distribution with ...
  • Comparative Analysis and Classification of Cassette Exons and Constitutive Exons 

    Cui, Ying; Cai, Meng; Stanley, H. Eugene (Hindawi Ltd, 2017-01-01)
    Alternative splicing (AS) is a major engine that drives proteome diversity in mammalian genomes and is a widespread cause of human hereditary diseases. More than 95% of genes in the human genome are alternatively spliced, ...
