    • A Comparison of Self Reported Physical Activity and ActiGraph Recorded Physical Activity Amongst Young Adults 

      Love, Avery N.; Dolan, Chad T. (2017)
      Introduction. A quick, inexpensive, and noninvasive method to assess the physical activity (PA) level of an individual is to use a questionnaire in which a subject recalls their usual weekly activity. The information from ...

      Leading causes of death among Latinos in the U.S include cancer (of which, lung cancer is the most frequent cause of cancer death), heart disease, unintentional injuries, and stroke. Three of these four causes have a ...
    • A Field Study of the Antecedents and Performance Consequences of Perceived Accountability 

      Mero, Neal P.; Guidice, Rebecca M.; Werner, Steve (Journal of Management, 9/1/2014)
      Building on theoretical and empirical work considering the implications of accountability on individual behavior, the authors explored the antecedents and consequences of individual perceptions of accountability for job ...
    • A fully resolved numerical simulation of turbulent flow past one or several spherical particles 

      Botto, L.; Prosperetti, Andrea (The Physics of Fluids, 1/31/2012)
      The flow past one or nine spheres arranged in a plane lattice held fixed in a stream of decaying homogeneous isotropic turbulence is studied by means of fully resolved Navier-Stokes simulations. The particle radius is 3–5 ...
    • A Game-Theoretic Approach to Energy Trading in the Smart Grid 

      Wang, Yunpeng; Saad, Walid; Han, Zhu; Poor, H. Vincent; Ba?ar, Tamer (IEEE Transactions on Smart Grid, 4/15/2014)
      Electric storage units constitute a key element in the emerging smart grid system. In this paper, the interactions and energy trading decisions of a number of geographically distributed storage units are studied using a ...
    • A general derivation of the subharmonic threshold for non-linear bubble oscillations 

      Prosperetti, Andrea (The Journal of the Acoustical Society of America, 6/5/2013)
      The paper describes an approximate but rather general derivation of the acoustic threshold for a subharmonic component to be possible in the sound scattered by an insonified gas bubble. The general result is illustrated ...
    • A Generalization of the Rayleigh-Plesset Equation of Bubble Dynamics 

      Prosperetti, Andrea (The Physics of Fluids, 1982-03)
      The classical Rayleigh?Plesset equation of spherical bubble dynamics in an incompressible liquid is generalized to include the non?Newtonian behavior of the liquid and mass exchange processes at the bubble interface.
    • A Heterogeneous Robotics Team for Large-Scale Seismic Sensing 

      Sudarshan, Srikanth K. V.; Montano, Victor; Nguyen, An; McClimans, Michael; Chang, Li; Stewart, Robert R.; Becker, Aaron T. (IEEE Robotics and Automation Letters, 2/8/2017)
      Seismic surveying requires placing a large number of sensors (geophones) in a grid pattern, triggering a seismic event, and recording vibration readings. The goal of the surveying is often to locate subsurface resources. ...
    • A Hierarchical Game With Strategy Evolution for Mobile Sponsored Content and Service Markets 

      Wang, Wenbo; Xiong, Zehui; Niyato, Dusit; Wang, Ping; Han, Zhu (IEEE Transactions on Communications, 9/24/2018)
