This paper highlights the significance of including memory structures in neural networks when the latter are used to learn perception-action loops for autonomous robot navigation. Traditional navigation approaches rely on global maps of the environment to overcome cul-de-sacs and plan feasible motions. Yet, maintaining an accurate global map may be challenging in real-world settings. Read More

In order to make hyperspectral image classification compu- tationally tractable, it is often necessary to select the most informative bands instead to process the whole data without losing the geometrical representation of original data. To cope with said issue, an improved un- supervised non-linear deep auto encoder (UDAE) based band selection method is proposed. The proposed UDAE is able to select the most infor- mative bands in such a way that preserve the key information but in the lower dimensions, where the hidden representation is a non-linear trans- formation that maps the original space to a space of lower dimensions.

We demonstrate an electrically induced, non-volatile, metal-insulator phase transition in a MoS$_2$ transistor. A single crystalline, epitaxially grown, PbZr$_{0.2}$Ti$_{0. Read More

This series of papers is dedicated to the study of motivic homotopy theory in the context of brave new or spectral algebraic geometry. In Part II we prove a comparison result with the classical motivic homotopy theory of Morel-Voevodsky. This comparison says roughly that any $\mathbf{A}^1$-homotopy invariant cohomology theory in spectral algebraic geometry is determined by its restriction to classical algebraic geometry. Read More

The Daya Bay experiment has observed correlations between reactor core fuel evolution and changes in the reactor antineutrino flux and energy spectrum. Four antineutrino detectors in two experimental halls were used to identify 2.2 million inverse beta decays (IBDs) over 1230 days spanning multiple fuel cycles for each of six 2. Read More

The chaos control problem of continuous time Rabinovich chaotic system is addressed. An instantaneous control input has been designed using predictive control principle to guarantee the convergence of the chaotic trajectory towards an unstable equilibrium point. Numerical simulations are presented to verify all the theoretical analyses. Read More

In this paper, a novel scheme for synchronizing four drive and four response systems is proposed by the authors. The idea of multi switching and dual combination synchronization is extended to dual combination-combination multi switching synchronization involving eight chaotic systems and is a first of its kind. Due to the multiple combination of chaotic systems and multi switching the resultant dynamic behaviour is so complex that, in communication theory, transmission and security of the resultant signal is more effective.

Crowdsourcing is becoming increasingly important in entity resolution tasks due to their inherent complexity such as clustering of images and natural language processing. Humans can provide more insightful information for these difficult problems compared to machine-based automatic techniques. Nevertheless, human workers can make mistakes due to lack of domain expertise or seriousness, ambiguity, or even due to malicious intents. Read More

Color transfer between images uses the statistics information of image effectively. We present a novel approach of local color transfer between images based on the simple statistics and locally linear embedding. A sketching interface is proposed for quickly and easily specifying the color correspondences between target and source image. Read More

We study distributed graph algorithms that adopt an iterative vertex-centric framework for graph processing, popularized by the Google's Pregel system. Since then, there are several attempts to implement many graph algorithms in a vertex-centric framework, as well as efforts to design optimization techniques for improving the efficiency. However, to the best of our knowledge, there has not been any systematic study to compare these vertex-centric implementations with their sequential counterparts. Read More

In this paper, we extend the Banach contraction principle to metric-like as well as partial metric spaces (not essentially complete) equipped with an arbitrary binary relation. Thereafter, we derive some fixed point results which are sharper versions of the corresponding known results of the existing literature. Finally, we use an example to demonstrate our main result.

In this study we present our preliminary report on the scintillation properties of new Ce-doped Tl2LaBr5 single crystal. Two zones vertical Bridgman technique is used for the growth of this compound. Pure and Ce-doped samples showed maximum emission peaks at 435 nm and 415 nm, respectively. Read More

The hitherto unexplored nonlocality of quantum correlations in the information transfer protocol of remote state preparation (RSP) is investigated in terms of a unified nonlocality argument formulated for teleportation as well as for two distinct RSP schemes. The argument differs only in the respective types of local measurements used in each scenario. One of the RSP schemes uses single particle projective measurements, while the other uses joint Bell-basis measurements. Read More

In this article we study the two-dimensional (2D) ultracold Fermi gas with weak impurity in the framework of mean-field theory where the impurity is introduced through Gaussian fluctuations. We have investigated the role of the impurity by studying the experimentally accessible quantities such as condensate fraction and equation of state of the ultracold systems. Our analysis reveals that, at the crossover the disorder enhances superfluidity, which we attribute to the unique nature of the unitary region and to the dimensional effect. Read More

We study online graph queries that retrieve nearby nodes of a query node from a large network. To answer such queries with high throughput and low latency, we partition the graph and process the data in parallel across a cluster of servers. State-of-the-art distributed graph querying systems place each graph partition on a separate server, where query answering over that partition takes place. Read More

Searching for the Neutrinoless Double Beta Decay (NLDBD) is now regarded as the topmost promising technique to explore the nature of neutrinos after the discovery of neutrino masses in oscillation experiments. PandaX-III (Particle And Astrophysical Xenon Experiment III) will search for the NLDBD of $^{136}$Xe at the China Jin Ping underground Laboratory (CJPL). In the first phase of the experiment, a high pressure gas Time Projection Chamber (TPC) will contain 200 kg, 90% $^{136}$Xe enriched gas operated at 10 bar. Read More

We report the colloidal synthesis of strongly fluorescent CsPbBr3 perovskite nanowires (NWs) with rectangular section and with tuneable width, from 20 nm (exhibiting no quantum confinement, hence emitting in the green) down to around 3 nm (in the strong quan-tum-confinement regime, emitting in the blue), by introducing in the synthesis a short acid (octanoic acid or hexanoic acid) together with alkyl amines (octylamine and oleylamine). Temperatures below 70 {\deg}C promoted the formation of monodisperse, few unit cell thick NWs that were free from byproducts. The photoluminescence quantum yield of the NW samples went from 12% for non-confined NWs emitting at 524 nm to a maximum of 77% for the 5 nm diameter NWs emitting at 497 nm, down to 30% for the thinnest NWs (diameter ~ 3nm), in the latter sample most likely due to aggregation occurring in solution.

This series of papers is dedicated to the study of motivic homotopy theory in the context of brave new or spectral algebraic geometry. In Part I we set up the theory and prove an analogue of the localization theorem of Morel-Voevodsky in classical motivic homotopy theory. Read More

We present a novel approach of color transfer between images by exploring their high-level semantic information. First, we set up a database which consists of the collection of downloaded images from the internet, which are segmented automatically by using matting techniques. We then, extract image foregrounds from both source and multiple target images. Read More

The rejection of the contamination, or background, from low-energy strong interactions at hadron collider experiments is a topic that has received significant attention in the field of particle physics. This article builds on a particle-level view of collision events, in line with recently-proposed subtraction methods. While conventional techniques in the field usually concentrate on probability distributions, our study is, to our knowledge, the first attempt at estimating the frequency distribution of background particles across the kinematic space inside individual collision events.

White matter tract integrity (WMTI) can characterize brain microstructure in areas with highly aligned fiber bundles. Several WMTI biomarkers have now been validated against microscopy and provided promising results in studies of brain development and aging, and in a number of brain disorders. Currently, WMTI is mostly used in dedicated animal studies and clinical studies of slowly progressing diseases but has not yet emerged as a routine clinical tool. Read More

Egocentric, or first-person vision which became popular in recent years with an emerge in wearable technology, is different than exocentric (third-person) vision in some distinguishable ways, one of which being that the camera wearer is generally not visible in the video frames. Recent work has been done on action and object recognition in egocentric videos, as well as work on biometric extraction from first-person videos. Height estimation can be a useful feature for both soft-biometrics and object tracking. Read More

We present the effects of lead doping on the thermoelectric properties of Tellurium Telluride, prepared by solid state reactions in an evacuated sealed silica tubes. Structurally, all these compounds were found to be phase pure as confirmed by the x-rays and energy dispersive spectroscopy analysis. The Seebeck co-efficient S was measured for all these compounds which show that S increases with increasing temperature from 295 to 550 K. Read More

We aim to present a generalized Bayesian inference method for constraining interiors of super Earths and sub-Neptunes. Our methodology succeeds in quantifying the degeneracy and correlation of structural parameters for high dimensional parameter spaces. Specifically, we identify what constraints can be placed on composition and thickness of core, mantle, ice, ocean, and atmospheric layers given observations of mass, radius, and bulk refractory abundance constraints (Fe, Mg, Si) from observations of the host star's photospheric composition.

The goal of this paper is to propose preconditioners for the system of linear equations that arises from a discretization of fourth order elliptic problems using spectral element methods. These preconditioners are constructed using separation of variables and can be diagonalized and hence easy to invert. For second order elliptic problems this technique has proven to be very successful and performs better than other preconditioners. Read More

Network reliability is a well-studied problem that requires to measure the probability that a target node is reachable from a source node in a probabilistic (or uncertain) graph, i.e., a graph where every edge is assigned a probability of existence. Read More

This paper considers a multi-source multi-relay network, in which relay nodes employ a coding scheme based on random linear network coding on source packets and generate coded packets. If a destination node collects enough coded packets, it can recover the packets of all source nodes. The links between source-to-relay nodes and relay-to-destination nodes are modeled as packet erasure channels. Read More

Rapid increase in internet users along with growing power of online review sites and social media has given birth to sentiment analysis or opinion mining, which aims at determining what other people think and comment. Sentiments or Opinions contain public generated content about products, services, policies and politics. People are usually interested to seek positive and negative opinions containing likes and dislikes, shared by users for features of particular product or service. Read More

We investigate the effects of charged-current nonstandard neutrino interactions (NSIs) at the source and at the detector in the simulated data for the planned Deep Underground Neutrino Experiment (DUNE), while neglecting the neutral-current NSIs at the propagation. We study the effects of NSIs on the simultaneous measurements of $\theta_{23}$ and $ \delta _{CP} $ in the DUNE. The analysis reveals that 3$\sigma $ C. Read More

We present a global analysis of the semileptonic and purely Leptonic nonuniversal and flavor-changing nonstandard neutrino interactions in all the known short-baseline neutrino- and antineutrino-electron scattering experiments. The nonstandard effects at the source and at the detector can be more transparent in these experiments because of the negligibly small ratio between the baselines and the neutrino energies, which is not enough for the neutrinos to oscillate, and thus can be sensitive to the new physics at the both ends. We use data from two electron-neutrino electron scattering experiments and six electron-antineutrino electron scattering experiments and combine them to find the best fits on the nonstandard parameters using the source-only, detector-only analyses, and then find the interplay between the two cases.

In decentralized systems, nodes often need to coordinate to access shared resources in a fair manner. One approach to perform such arbitration is to rely on auction mechanisms. Although there is an extensive literature that studies auctions, most of these works assume the existence of a central, trusted auctioneer. Read More

Recently, there have been numerous advances in the development of biologically inspired lightweight Micro Aerial Vehicles (MAVs). While autonomous navigation is fairly straight-forward for large UAVs as expensive sensors and monitoring devices can be employed, robust methods for obstacle avoidance remains a challenging task for MAVs which operate at low altitude in cluttered unstructured environments. Due to payload and power constraints, it is necessary for such systems to have autonomous navigation and flight capabilities using mostly passive sensors such as cameras. Read More

The CALICE Semi-Digital Hadron Calorimeter (SDHCAL) technological prototype is a sampling calorimeter using Glass Resistive Plate Chamber detectors with a three-threshold readout as the active medium. This technology is one of the two options proposed for the hadron calorimeter of the International Large Detector for the International Linear Collider. The prototype was exposed to beams of muons, electrons and pions of different energies at the CERN Super Proton Synchrotron. Read More

In the paper, we investigate statistical approximation properties of $(p,q)$-analogue of Bernstein-Stancu Operators. We study approximation properties based on statistical convergence. We also study error bound using modulus of continuity. Read More

In this paper, we introduce a generalization of the $q$-Meyer-Konig and Zeller operators by means of the $(p,q)$-integers as well as of the $(p,q)$-Gaussian binomial coefficients. For $ 0< q < p <= 1,$ the sequence of the $(p,q)$-Meyer-Konig and Zeller operators denoted by $M_n,p,q$ and some results based on statistical convergence and direct theorems is obtained. Furthermore, we show comparisons and some illustrative graphics for the convergence of operators to a function. Read More

Small-amplitude waves in the Fermi-Pasta-Ulam (FPU) lattice with weakly anharmonic interaction potentials are described by the generalized Korteweg-de Vries (KdV) equation. Justification of the small-amplitude approximation is usually performed on the time scale, for which dynamics of the KdV equation is defined. We show how to extend justification analysis on longer time intervals provided dynamics of the generalized KdV equation is globally well-posed in Sobolev spaces and either the Sobolev norms are globally bounded or they grow at most polynomially.

In this paper, we have given a corrigendum to our paper "Some Approximation Results by $(p,q)$-analogue of Bernstein-Stancu Operators" published in Applied Mathematics and Computation $264 (2015) 392-402.$ We introduce a new analogue of Bernstein-Stancu operators and we call it as $(p,q)$-Bernstein-Stancu operators. We study approximation properties based on Korovkin's type approximation theorem of $(p,q)$-Bernstein-Stancu operators. Read More

Single crystalline thin films of complex oxides show a rich variety of functional properties such as ferroelectricity, piezoelectricity, ferro and antiferromagnetism etc. that have the potential for completely new electronic applications (1-2). Direct synthesis of such oxides on Si remains challenging due to the fundamental crystal chemistry and mechanical incompatibility of dissimilar interfaces (3-16). Read More

Understanding emerging areas of a multidisciplinary research field is crucial for researchers,policymakers and other stakeholders. For them a knowledge structure based on longitudinal bibliographic data can be an effective instrument.

We present a study of showers initiated by electrons, pions, kaons, and protons with momenta from 15 GeV to 150 GeV in the highly granular CALICE scintillator-tungsten analogue hadronic calorimeter. The data were recorded at the CERN Super Proton Synchrotron in 2011. The analysis includes measurements of the calorimeter response to each particle type as well as measurements of the energy resolution and studies of the longitudinal and radial shower development for selected particles.

Monitoring the health of ancient artworks requires adequate prudence because of the sensitive nature of these materials. Classical techniques for identifying the development of faults rely on acoustic testing. These techniques, being invasive, may result in causing permanent damage to the material, especially if the material is inspected periodically. Read More

This letter considers a network comprising a transmitter, which employs random linear network coding to encode a message, a legitimate receiver, which can recover the message if it gathers a sufficient number of linearly independent coded packets, and an eavesdropper. Closed-form expressions for the probability of the eavesdropper intercepting enough coded packets to recover the message are derived. Transmission with and without feedback is studied. Read More

One of the challenges with quantum simulation in ion traps is that the effective spin-spin exchange couplings are not uniform across the lattice. This can be particularly important in Penning trap realizations where the presence of an ellipsoidal boundary at the edge of the trap leads to dislocations in the crystal. By adding an additional anharmonic potential to better control interion spacing, and a triangular shaped rotating wall potential to reduce the appearance of dislocations, one can achieve better uniformity of the ionic positions.

We study the dispersion mechanism of Lieb mode excitations of both single and multi component ultra-cold atomic Bose gas, subject to a harmonic confinement through chirp management. It is shown that in some parameter domain, the hole-like excitations lead to the soliton's negative mass regime, arising due to the coupling between chirp momentum and Kohn mode. In low momenta region the trap considerably affects the dispersion of the grey soliton, which opens a new window to observe Lieb-mode excitations. Read More

We study the partition function ${\cal N}=1$ 5D $U(N)$ gauge theory with $g$ adjoint hypermultiplets and show that for massless adjoint hypermultiplets it is equal to the partition function of a two dimensional topological field on a genus $g$ Riemann surface. We describe the topological field theory by its amplitudes associated with cap, propagator and pair of pants. These basic amplitudes are open topological string amplitudes associated with certain Calabi-Yau threefolds in the presence of Lagrangian branes. Read More

Recently, Popa and Rasa [18,19] have shown the (in)stability of some classical operators defined on [0,1] and found best constant when the positive linear operators are stable in the sense of Hyers-Ulam. In this paper we show Hyers-Ulam (in)stability of complex Bernstein-Schurer operators, complex Kantrovich-Schurer operators and Lorentz operators on compact disk. In the case when the operator is stable in the sense of Hyers and Ulam, we find the infimum of Hyers-Ulam stability constants for respective operators. Read More

In this paper, we introduce a Kantorovich type generalization of q-Bernstein-Stancu operators. We study the convergence of the introduced operators and also obtain the rate of convergence by these operators in terms of the modulus of continuity. Further, we study local approximation property and Voronovskaja type theorem for the said operators. Read More

We report a measurement of the time-dependent CP asymmetry of B0->D(*)CP h0 decays, where the light neutral hadron h0 is a pi0, eta or omega meson, and the neutral D meson is reconstructed in the CP eigenstates K+ K-, K0S pi0 or K0S omega. The measurement is performed combining the final data samples collected at the Y(4S) resonance by the BaBar and Belle experiments at the asymmetric-energy B factories PEP-II at SLAC and KEKB at KEK, respectively. The data samples contain ( 471 +/- 3 ) x 10^6 BB pairs recorded by the BaBar detector and ( 772 +/- 11 ) x 10^6, BB pairs recorded by the Belle detector. Read More
