We introduce the problem of <i>shape replication</i> in the Wang tile self-assembly model. Given an input shape, we consider the problem of designing a self-assembly system which will replicate that shape into either a specific number of copies, or an unbounded number of copies. Motivated by practical DNA implementations of Wang tiles, we consider a model… (More)

Interleukin-7 (IL-7), a product of stromal cells, provides critical signals to lymphoid cells at early stages in their development. Two types of cellular responses to IL-7 have been identified in lymphoid progenitors: (1) a trophic effect and (2) an effect supporting V(D)J recombination. The IL-7 receptor is comprised of two chains, IL-7R alpha and… (More)

Modular robots consist of many small units that attach together and can perform local motions. By combining these motions, we can achieve a reconfiguration of the global shape. The term modular comes from the idea of grouping together a fixed number of units into a module, which behaves as a larger individual component. Recently, a fair amount of research… (More)

We present data structures for triangular emptiness and reporting queries for a planar point set, where the query triangle contains the origin. The data structures use near-linear space and achieve polylogarithmic query times.

Interleukin-7 (IL-7) receptor signaling begins with activation of the Janus tyrosine kinases Jak1 and Jak3, which are associated with the receptor complex. To identify potential targets of these kinases, we examined Pyk2 (a member of the focal adhesion kinase family) using an IL-7-dependent murine thymocyte line, D1. We demonstrate that stimulation of D1… (More)

We present a universal crease pattern—known in geometry as the tetrakis tiling and in origami as box pleating—that can fold into any object made up of unit cubes joined face-to-face (polycubes). More precisely, there is one universal finite crease pattern for each number n of unit cubes that need to be folded. This result contrasts previous universality… (More)

For a fixed integer k ≥ 0, a k-transmitter is an omnidirectional wireless transmitter with an infinite broadcast range that is able to penetrate up to k “walls”, represented as line segments in the plane. We develop lower and upper bounds for the number of k-transmitters that are necessary and sufficient to cover a given collection of line segments,… (More)

The empty space around n disjoint line segments in the plane can be partitioned into n+ 1 convex faces by extending the segments in some order. The dual graph of such a partition is the plane graph whose vertices correspond to the n+1 convex faces, and every segment endpoint corresponds to an edge between the two incident faces on opposite sides of the… (More)

We address the question: How many edge guards are needed to guard an orthogonal polyhedron of e edges, r of which are reflex? It was previously established [3] that e/12 are sometimes necessary and e/6 always suffice. In contrast to the closed edge guards used for these bounds, we introduce a new model, open edge guards (excluding the endpoints of the… (More)
