As Boston University's largest academic division, the College and Graduate School of Arts & Sciences is the heart of the BU experience. Undergraduates choose from more than 2,500 courses in the humanities, natural and social sciences, and mathematics and computer science and pursue BA programs in more than 70 concentrations. Graduate students can earn an MA or PhD in nearly 50 fields of the humanities; the natural, social, and mathematical sciences; theology; and music. A robust and productive learning environment awaits everyone who enrolls here.

  • Effect of trends on detrended fluctuation analysis 

    Hu, Kun; Ivanov, Plamen C.; Chen, Zhi; Carpena, Pedro; Stanley, H. E. (American Physical Society, 2001-07-01)
    The origin and the properties of crossovers in the scaling behavior of noisy signals were studied by applying the detrended fluctuation analysis (DFA) method first on correlated noise and then on noise with trends, and ...
  • Predicting substance use disorder using long-term ADHD medication records in Truven 

    Fouladvand, Sajjad; Hankosky, Emily R.; Henderson, Darren W.; Bush, Heather M.; Chen, Jin; Dwoskin, Linda P.; Freeman, Patricia R.; Kantak, Kathleen M.; Talbert, Jeffery, C.; Tao, Shiqiang; Zhang, Guo- Qiang (SAGE Publications, 2019-05-19)
    About 20% of individuals with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder are first diagnosed during adolescence. While preclinical experiments suggest that adolescent-onset exposure to attention deficit hyperactivity disorder ...
  • Behavioral-independence features of complex heartbeat dynamics 

    Nunes Amaral, Luis A.; Ivanov, Plamen Ch.; Aoyagi, Naoko; Hidaka, Ichiro; Tomono, Shinji; Goldberger, Ary L.; Stanley, H. E.; Yamamoto, Yoshiharu (American Physical Society, 2001-06-25)
    We test whether the complexity of cardiac interbeat interval time series is simply a consequence of the wide range of scales characterizing human behavior, especially physical activity, by analyzing data taken from healthy ...
  • Punishment diminishes the benefits of network reciprocity in social dilemma experiments 

    Li, Xuelong; Jusup, Marko; Wang, Zhen; Li, Huijia; Shi, Lei; Podobnik, Boris; Stanley, H. Eugene; Havlin, Shlomo; Boccaletti, Stefano (National Academy of Sciences, 2018-01-02)
    Network reciprocity has been widely advertised in theoretical studies as one of the basic cooperation-promoting mechanisms, but experimental evidence favoring this type of reciprocity was published only recently. When ...
  • Discrete molecular dynamics studies of the folding of a protein-like model 

    Dokholyan, Nikolay V.; Buldyrev, Sergey V.; Stanley, H. Eugene; Shakhnovich, Eugene I. (ScienceDirect, 1998-01-01)
    Background: Many attempts have been made to resolve in time the folding of model proteins in computer simulations. Different computational approaches have emerged. Some of these approaches suffer from insensitivity to the ...
  • Effect of strong opinions on the dynamics of the majority-vote model 

    Vilela, Andre L.M.; Stanley, H. Eugene (Nature Publishing Group, 2018-06-07)
    We study how the presence of individuals with strong opinions affects a square lattice majority-vote model with noise. In a square lattice network we perform Monte-Carlo simulations and replace regular actors σ with strong ...
  • Generic mechanism for generating a liquid-liquid phase transition 

    Franzese, Giancarlo; Malescio, Gianpietro; Skibinsky, Anna; Buldyrev, Sergey V.; Stanley, H. Eugene (Macmillian Publishers LTD, 2001-02-08)
    Recent experimental results1 indicate that phosphorus—a single-component system—can have a high-density liquid (HDL) and a low-density liquid (LDL) phase. A first-order transition between two liquids of different densities2 ...
  • Percolation on interacting networks with feedback-dependency links 

    Dong, Gaogao; Tian, Lixin; Du, Ruijin; Fu, Min; Stanley, H Eugene (2013-10-04)
    When real networks are considered, coupled networks with connectivity and feedback-dependency links are not rare but more general. Here we develop a mathematical framework and study numerically and analytically percolation ...
  • Dynamics of surface roughening with quenched disorder 

    Havlin, S.; Amaral, L.A.N.; Buldyrev, S.V.; Harrington, S.T.; Stanley, H.E. (American Physical Society, 1995-05-22)
    We study the dynamical exponent z for the directed percolation depinning (DPD) class of models for surface roughening in the presence of quenched disorder. We argue that z for d + 1 dimensions is equal to the exponent d ...
  • Three red suns in the sky: A transiting, terrestrial planet in a triple M-dwarf system at 6.9 pc 

    Winters, Jennifer G.; Medina, Amber A.; Irwin, Jonathan M.; Charbonneau, David; Astudillo-Defru, Nicola; Horch, Elliott P.; Eastman, Jason D.; Vrijmoet, Eliot Halley; Henry, Todd J.; Diamond-Lowe, Hannah; Winston, Elaine; Barclay, Thomas; Bonfils, Xavier; Ricker, George R.; Vanderspek, Roland; Latham, David W.; Seager, Sara; Winn, Joshua N.; Jenkins, Jon M.; Udry, Stéphane; Twicken, Joseph D.; Teske, Johanna K.; Tenenbaum, Peter; Pepe, Francesco; Murgas, Felipe; Muirhead, Philip S.; Mink, Jessica; Lovis, Christophe; Levine, Alan M.; Lépine, Sébastien; Jao, Wei-Chun; Henze, Christopher E.; Furész, Gábor; Forveille, Thierry; Figueira, Pedro; Esquerdo, Gilbert A.; Dressing, Courtney D.; Díaz, Rodrigo F.; Delfosse, Xavier; Burke, Christopher J.; Bouchy, François; Berlind, Perry; Almenara, Jose-Manuel (American Astronomical Society, 2019-10)
    We present the discovery from Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite (TESS) data of LTT 1445Ab. At a distance of 6.9 pc, it is the second nearest transiting exoplanet system found to date, and the closest one known for which ...
