To run Fisher's exact test for independence, we have to find all integer tables with prescribed row sums and column sums. More generally, to run Fisher's exact test for graphical models, we have to find all n-way tables with prescribed marginals. Often, it is impossible to list all such tables... read more

Studies of human genetics and pathophysiology have implicated the regulation of autophagy in inflammation, neurodegeneration, infection, and other disease states. These findings have motivated the development of small-molecule probes with diverse mechanisms of action to study how modulation of... read more

Ada Lovelace (born 200 years ago) wrote presciently about digital numerical calculations. She expressed its features poetically: "We may say most aptly that [Babbage's] Analytical Engine weaves algebraical patterns just as the Jacquard loom weaves flowers and leaves." Ada explained the generality... read more

We provide an algorithm, running in polynomial time in the number of vertices, computing the unique solution to the Biased Infinity Laplacian Boundary Problem on finite graphs. The algorithm is based on an adjusted (biased) notion of a slope of a function on a path in a graph. The infinity... read more

Recent extreme weather events have revealed a disaster landscape that suggests that the U.S. is increasingly vulnerable to weather hazards despite advances in science, technology, and mitigation. Specifically, catastrophic tornadoes and tornado outbreaks in the past few years have produced billions... read more

We live in an era in which the creation of new data is growing exponentially such that every two days we create as much new data as we did from the beginning of mankind until the year 2003. One of the greatest scientific challenges of the 21st century is to effectively understand and make use of... read more
