Structural Scaffolds for Citation Intent Classification in Scientific Publications
TLDR
This work proposes structural scaffolds, a multitask model to incorporate structural information of scientific papers into citations for effective classification of citation intents, which achieves a new state-of-the-art on an existing ACL anthology dataset with a 13.3% absolute increase in F1 score.
Machine Learning Classification
The Data Science Handbook
TLDR
This book is aimed at both statisticians and applied researchers interested in causal inference and general effect estimation for observational and experimental data, and includes an accessible introduction to super learning and the targeted maximum likelihood estimator.
Open-system thermodynamic analysis of DNA polymerase fidelity.
TLDR
A rigorous thermodynamic analysis of the bare DNA polymerization reaction, i.e., in the absence of exonuclease activity and proofreading, is developed and generalizes the theory of kinetic checkpoints and provides it with a sound thermodynamic basis.
A Stochastic Analysis of Hard Disk Drives
TLDR
A stochastic analysis of hard disk performance, including a closed form solution for the average access time of a memory request, based on an analytical technique called “shuffling” which greatly simplifies the analysis relative to previous work and provides a simple, easy-to-use formula for theaverage access time.

An Elementary Derivation of Mean Wait Time in Polling Systems
TLDR
It is shown that, if you are willing to only have the average waiting of a system time rather than higher moments, it can be found through an elementary derivation based only on algebra and some well-known properties of Poisson processes.
