      Laferriere, Alison Beth (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2011-02)
      Current underwater acoustic channel estimation techniques generally apply linear MMSE estimation. This approach is optimal in a mean square error sense under the assumption that the impulse response fluctuations are well ...

    • The karyomastigont as an evolutionary seme 

      Chapman, Michael; Alliegro, Mark C. (University of Chicago Press, 2012-12)
      The problem of eukaryogenesis—the evolutionary mechanism whereby eukaryotic cells evolved from prokaryotes—remains one of the great unsolved mysteries of cell biology, possibly due to the reductionist tendency of most ...

    • The killer fly hunger games : target size and speed predict decision to pursuit 

      Wardill, Trevor J.; Knowles, K.; Barlow, L.; Tapia, G.; Nordstrom, Karin; Olberg, R. M.; Gonzalez-Bellido, Paloma T. (S. Karger AG, Basel, 2015-09-24)
      Predatory animals have evolved to optimally detect their prey using exquisite sensory systems such as vision, olfaction and hearing. It may not be so surprising that vertebrates, with large central nervous systems, excel ...
    • Killer whales and marine mammal trends in the North Pacific : a re-examination of evidence for sequential megafauna collapse and the prey-switching hypothesis 

      Wade, Paul R.; Burkanov, Vladimir N.; Dahlheim, Marilyn E.; Friday, Nancy A.; Fritz, Lowell W.; Loughlin, Thomas R.; Mizroch, Sally A.; Muto, Marcia M.; Rice, Dale W.; Barrett-Lennard, Lance G.; Black, Nancy A.; Burdin, Alexander M.; Calambokidis, John; Cerchio, Sal; Ford, John K.

      Springer et al. (2003) contend that sequential declines occurred in North Pacific populations of harbor and fur seals, Steller sea lions, and sea otters. They hypothesize that these were due to increased predation by killer ...
    • Kin and population recognition in sympatric Lake Constance perch (Perca fluviatilis L.) : can assortative shoaling drive population divergence? 

      Behrmann-Godel, Jasminca; Gerlach, Gabriele; Eckmann, Reiner (2005-08-02)
      Prior studies have shown that perch (Perca fluviatilis L.) of Lake Constance belong to two genetically different but sympatric populations, and that local aggregations of juveniles and adults contain closely related kin. ...
    • Kinematic evaluation of end effector design 

      Edwards, Gary W. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1992-09)
      The complex, many degree-of-freedom end effectors at the leading edge of technology would be unusable in the sea bottom research environment. Simpler designs are required to provide adequate reliability for subsea ...
