The idea of statistical transmutation plays a crucial role in descriptions of the fractional quantum Hall effect. However, a recently conjectured duality between a critical boson and a massless 2-component Dirac fermion extends this notion to gapless systems. This duality may shed light on highly non-trivial problems such as the half-filled Landau level, the superconductor-insulator transition, and surface states of strongly coupled topological insulators.

Exploiting the energy of randomly moving active agents such as bacteria is a fascinating way to power a microdevice. Here we show, by simulations, that a chain-grafted disk-like colloid can rotate unidirectionally when immersed in a thin film of active particle suspension. The spontaneous symmetry breaking of chain configurations is the origin of the unidirectional rotation. Read More

Domain adaptation is transfer learning which aims to generalize a learning model across training and testing data with different distributions. Most previous research tackle this problem in seeking a shared feature representation between source and target domains while reducing the mismatch of their data distributions. In this paper, we propose a close yet discriminative domain adaptation method, namely CDDA, which generates a latent feature representation with two interesting properties. Read More

Autonomous driving clouds provide essential services to support autonomous vehicles. Today these services include but not limited to distributed simulation tests for new algorithm deployment, offline deep learning model training, and High-Definition (HD) map generation. These services require infrastructure support including distributed computing, distributed storage, as well as heterogeneous computing. Read More

In this paper, we describe the numerical reconstruction method for quantitative photoacoustic tomography (QPAT) based on the radiative transfer equation (RTE), which models light propagation more accurately than diffusion approximation (DA). We investigate the reconstruction of absorption coefficient and/or scattering coefficient of biological tissues. Given the scattering coefficient, an improved fixed-point iterative method is proposed to retrieve the absorption coefficient for its cheap computational cost. Read More

The minimal evolution time between two distinguishable states is of fundamental interest in quantum physics. Very recently Mirkin et al. argue that some most common quantum-speed-limit (QSL) bounds which depend on the actual evolution time do not cleave to the essence of the QSL theory as they grow indefinitely but the final state is reached at a finite time in a damped Jaynes-Cummings (JC) model.

The symmetries of surfaces which can be embedded into the symmetries of the 3-dimensional Euclidean space $\mathbb{R}^3$ are easier to feel by human's intuition. We give the maximum order of finite group actions on $(\mathbb{R}^3, \Sigma)$ among all possible embedded closed/bordered surfaces with given geometric/algebraic genus $>1$ in $\mathbb{R}^3$. We also identify the topological types of the bordered surfaces realizing the maximum order, and find simple representative embeddings for such surfaces. Read More

Naturalness of warping is gaining extensive attention in image stitching. Recent warps such as SPHP, AANAP and GSP, use a global similarity to effectively mitigate projective distortion (which enlarges regions), however, they necessarily bring in perspective distortion (which generates inconsistency). In this paper, we propose a quasi-homography warp, which balances perspective distortion against projective distortion in the non-overlapping region, to create natural-looking mosaics. Read More

We investigate the phase diagrams of the effective spin models derived from Fermi-Hubbard and Bose-Hubbard models with Rashba spin-orbit coupling, using string bond states, one of the quantum tensor network states methods. We focus on the role of quantum fluctuation effect in stabilizing the exotic spin phases in these models. For boson systems, and when the ratio between inter-particle and intra-particle interaction $\lambda > 1$, the out-of-plane ferromagnetic (FM) and antiferromagnetic (AFM) phases obtained from quantum simulations are the same to those obtained from classic model.

Image stitching is challenging in consumer-level photography, due to alignment difficulties in unconstrained shooting environment. Recent studies show that seam-cutting approaches can effectively relieve artifacts generated by local misalignment. Normally, seam-cutting is described in terms of energy minimization, however, few of existing methods consider human perception in their energy functions, which sometimes causes that a seam with minimum energy is not most invisible in the overlapping region.

Within the factorization-assisted topological-amplitude approach, we studied the 33 charmless $B_{(s)} \to VV$ decays, where $V$ stands for a light vector meson. According to the flavor flows, the amplitude of each process can be decomposed into 8 different topologies. In contrast to the conventional flavor diagrammatic approach, we further factorize each topological amplitude into decay constant, form factors and unknown universal parameters. Read More

The problem of detecting a few anomalous processes among a large number of $M$ processes is considered. At each time, aggregated observations can be taken from a chosen subset of processes, where the chosen subset conforms to a given binary tree structure. The random observations are i. Read More

A new model framework called Realized Conditional Autoregressive Expectile (Realized-CARE) is proposed, through incorporating a measurement equation into the conventional CARE model, in a manner analogous to the Realized-GARCH model. Competing realized measures (e.g. Read More

The heavy baryon $\Lambda_b $ is regarded as composed of a heavy quark and a scalar diquark which has good spin and isospin quantum numbers. In this picture, we calculate the electromagnetic (EM) form factors of $\Lambda_b$ in the Bethe-Salpeter equation approach. We find that the shapes of the EM form factors of $\Lambda_b$ are similar to those of $\Lambda$, which have a peak at about $\omega=1$, but the amplitudes are much smaller than those of $\Lambda$.

From the overlap lattice quark propagator calculated in the Landau gauge, we determine the quark chiral condensate by fitting operator product expansion formulas to the lattice data. The quark propagators are computed on domain wall fermion configurations generated by the RBC-UKQCD Collaborations with $N_f=2+1$ flavors. Three ensembles with different light sea quark masses are used at one lattice spacing $1/a=1. Read More

This paper studies the impact of artificial noise (AN) on the secrecy performance of a target cell in multi-cell cellular networks. Although AN turns out to be an efficient approach for securing a pointto-point/single cell confidential transmission, it would increase the inter-cell interference in a multi-cell cellular network, which may degrade the network reliability and secrecy performance. For analyzing the average secrecy performance of the target cell which is of significant interest, we employ a hybrid cellular deployment model, where the target cell is a circle of fixed size and the base stations (BSs) outside the target cell are modeled as a homogeneous Poisson point process (PPP). Read More

Calibration of the polarization basis between the transmitter and receiver is an important task in quantum key distribution (QKD). An effective polarization-basis tracking scheme will decrease the quantum bit error rate (QBER) and improve the efficiency of a polarization encoding QKD system. In this paper, we proposed a polarization-basis tracking scheme using only unveiled sifted key bits while performing error correction by legitimate users, rather than introducing additional reference light or interrupting the transmission of quantum signals.

Designing and implementing efficient, provably correct parallel neural network processing is challenging. Existing high-level parallel abstractions like MapReduce are insufficiently expressive while low-level tools like MPI and Pthreads leave ML experts repeatedly solving the same design challenges. However, the diversity and large-scale data size have posed a significant challenge to construct a flexible and high-performance implementation of deep learning neural networks. Read More

The single-photon avalanche photodiode(SPAD) has been widely used in research on quantum optics. The afterpulsing effect, which is an intrinsic character of SPAD, affects the system performance in most experiments and needs to be carefully handled. For a long time, afterpulsing has been presumed to be determined by the pre-ignition avalanche. Read More

Controlled syntheses in nanoscale structures should be expected and phosphorous nanotubes with predefined chiralities are important in electronic devices with tunable bandgap. Here, incorporating molecular dynamics simulations with theoretical analyses, we show that a zigzag phosphorene nanoribbon can self-assemble and form a corresponding chiral phosphorous nanotube surrounding a template armchair phosphorous nanotube. The van der Waals potential between the nanoribbon and the nanotube is transformed to the intrinsic deformed and chemical bonding energies of the synthesized tube together with partial kinetic energy.

As the emerging field of machine learning, deep learning shows excellent ability in solving complex learning problems. However, the size of the networks becomes increasingly large scale due to the demands of the practical applications, which poses significant challenge to construct a high performance implementations of deep learning neural networks. In order to improve the performance as well to maintain the low power cost, in this paper we design DLAU, which is a scalable accelerator architecture for large-scale deep learning networks using FPGA as the hardware prototype.

A quadrisecant of a knot is a straight line intersecting the knot at four points. If a knot has finitely many quadrisecants, one can replace each subarc between two adjacent secant points by the line segment between them to get the quadrisecant approximation of the original knot. It was conjectured that the quadrisecant approximation is always a knot with the same knot type as the original knot. Read More

Recent researches show that millimeter wave (mmWave) communications can offer orders of magnitude increases in the cellular capacity. However, the secrecy performance of a mmWave cellular network has not been investigated so far. Leveraging the new path-loss and blockage models for mmWave channels, which are significantly different from the conventional microwave channel, this paper comprehensively studies the network-wide physical layer security performance of the downlink transmission in a mmWave cellular network under a stochastic geometry framework.

Suppose an orientation preserving action of a finite group $G$ on the closed surface $\Sigma_g$ of genus $g>1$ extends over the 3-torus $T^3$ for some embedding $\Sigma_g\subset T^3$. Then $|G|\le 12(g-1)$, and this upper bound $12(g-1)$ can be achieved for $g=n^2+1, 3n^2+1, 2n^3+1, 4n^3+1, 8n^3+1, n\in \mathbb{Z}_+$. Those surfaces in $T^3$ realizing the maximum symmetries can be either unknotted or knotted. Read More

Afterpulsing effect, which is an intrinsic character of SPAD, affects the system performance in most of the experiments and needs to be carefully handled.

Pectoral muscle identification is often required for breast cancer risk analysis, such as estimating breast density. Traditional methods are overwhelmingly based on manual visual assessment or straight line fitting for the pectoral muscle boundary, which are inefficient and inaccurate since pectoral muscle in mammograms can have curved boundaries. This paper proposes a novel and automatic pectoral muscle identification algorithm for MLO view mammograms. Read More

This correspondence studies the secrecy communication of the single-input single-output multi-eavesdropper (SISOME) channel with multiple single-antenna jammers, where the jammers and eavesdroppers are distributed according to the independent two-dimensional homogeneous Poisson point process (PPP). For enhancing the physical layer security, we propose an opportunistic multiple jammer selection scheme, where the jammers whose channel gains to the legitimate receiver less than a threshold, are selected to transmit independent and identically distributed (\emph{i.i.

Deriving from the gradient vector of a generative model of local features, Fisher vector coding (FVC) has been identified as an effective coding method for image classification. Most, if not all, FVC implementations employ the Gaussian mixture model (GMM) to depict the generation process of local features. However, the representative power of the GMM could be limited because it essentially assumes that local features can be characterized by a fixed number of feature prototypes and the number of prototypes is usually small in FVC.

We consider the elliptic estimates for Dirichlet-Neumann operator related to the water-wave problem on a two-dimensional corner domain in this paper. Due to the singularity of the boundary, there will be singular parts in the solution of the elliptic problem for D-N operator. To begin with, we study elliptic problems with mixed boundary condition to derive singularity decompositions and estimates. Read More

This paper is a continuation of a previous work by two of the Authors on long time existence for Boussinesq systems modeling the propagation of long, weakly nonlinear water waves. We provide proofs on examples not considered previously in particular we prove a long time well-posedness result for a delicate "strongly dispersive" Boussinesq system. Read More

We introduce the concept of continuous transportation task to the context of multi-agent systems. A continuous transportation task is one in which a multi-agent team visits a number of fixed locations, picks up objects, and delivers them to a final destination. The goal is to maximize the rate of transportation while the objects are replenished over time. Read More

In video coding, it is expected that the encoder could adaptively select the encoding parameters (e.g., quantization parameter) to optimize the bit allocation to different sources under the given constraint. Read More

We consider the orientation preserving actions of finite groups $G$ on pairs $(S^3, \Gamma)$, where $\Gamma$ is a connected graph of genus $g>1$, embedded in $S^3$. For each $g$ we give the maximum order $m_g$ of such $G$ acting on $(S^3, \Gamma)$ for all such $\Gamma\subset S^3$. Indeed we will classify all graphs $\Gamma\subset S^3$ which realize these $m_g$ in different levels: as abstract graphs and as spatial graphs, as well as their group actions. Read More

Protein structure prediction remains to be an open problem in bioinformatics. There are two main categories of methods for protein structure prediction: Free Modeling (FM) and Template Based Modeling (TBM). Protein threading, belonging to the category of template based modeling, identifies the most likely fold with the target by making a sequence-structure alignment between target protein and template protein.

As a flammable and explosive industrial gas, C2H2 gas detection is necessary and significant. Herein, highly sensitive C2H2 gas sensor was initially fabricated by carbon-decorated SnO2 nanoparticles, which was prepared using CVD method with C2H2 Gas as raw material. The effects of preparation conditions on sensor response were studied and the response to 1000 ppm C2H2 at working temperature of 370 C reached a value of 106. Read More

SnO2 porous nanosolid (PNS) was prepared by a solvothermal hot-press method, and a new strategy was developed to improve its interfacial crystallinity and carrier mobility. It was found that the carrier mobility of SnO2 PNS was improved after being calcined at 500 {\deg}C in high-pressure oxygen. Furthermore, the mobility was greatly increased by calcining SnO2 PNS at 350 {\deg}C for 12 h in high-pressure oxygen, and the highest mobility reached 35 cm2/Vs. Read More

We propose a new mechanism which can introduce large $CP$ asymmetries in the phase spaces of three-body decays of heavy baryons. In this mechanism, a large $CP$ asymmetry is induced by the interference of two intermediate resonances, which subsequently decay into two different combinations of final particles. We apply this mechanism to the decay channel $\Lambda_b^0 \to p \pi^0\pi^-$, and find that the differential $CP$ asymmetry can reach as large as $50\%$, while the regional $CP$ asymmetry can reach as large as $16\%$ in the interference region of the phase space.

Protein structure prediction remains a challenge in the field of computational biology. Traditional protein structure prediction approaches include template-based modelling (say, homology modelling, and threading), and ab initio. A threading algorithm takes a query protein sequence as input, recognizes the most likely fold, and finally reports the alignments of the query sequence to structure-known templates as output.

In this paper, we prove the local well-posedness of the free boundary problem for the incompressible Euler equations in low regularity Sobolev spaces, in which the velocity is a Lipschtiz function and the free surface belongs to $C^{\f32+\varepsilon}$. Moreover, we also present a Beale-Kato-Majda type break-down criterion of smooth solution in terms of the mean curvature of the free surface, the gradient of the velocity and Taylor sign condition.

We study the localized direct CP violation in the hadronic decays $B^\pm\rightarrow \rho^0 (\omega)\pi^\pm\rightarrow\pi^+ \pi^-\pi^\pm$, including the effect caused by an interesting mechanism involving the charge symmetry violating mixing between $\rho^0$ and $\omega$. We calculate the localized integrated direct CP violation when the low invariant mass of $\pi^+\pi^-$ [$m(\pi^+\pi^-)_{low}$] is near $\rho^0(770)$. For five models of form factors investigated, we find that the localized integrated direct CP violation varies from -0. Read More

The emergence of a topologically nontrivial vortex-like magnetic structure, the magnetic skyrmion, has launched new concepts for memory devices. There, extensive studies have theoretically demonstrated the ability to encode information bits by using a chain of skyrmions in one-dimensional nanostripes. Here, we report the first experimental observation of the skyrmion chain in FeGe nanostripes by using high resolution Lorentz transmission electron microscopy. Read More

We propose a scheme by using the feed-forward control (FFC) to realize a better effect of discrimination of two nonorthogonal states after passing a noise channel based on the minimum- error (ME) discrimination. We show that the application of our scheme can highly improve the effect of discrimination compared with the ME discrimination without the FFC for any pair of nonorthogonal states and any degree of amplitude damping (AD). Especially, the effect of our optimal discrimination can reach that of the two initial nonorthogonal pure states in the presence of the noise channel in a deterministic way for equal a prior probabilities or even be better than that in a probabilistically way for unequal a prior probabilities.

We experimentally demonstrated a spectral imaging scheme with dual compressed sensing. With the dimensions of spectral and spatial information both compressed, the spectral image of a colored object can be obtained with only a single point detector. The effect of spatial and spectral modulation numbers on the imaging quality is also analyzed. Read More

We find all Heegaard diagrams with the property "alternating" or "weakly alternating" on a genus two orientable closed surface. Using these diagrams we give infinitely many genus two 3--manifolds, each admits an automorphism whose non-wondering set consists of two Williams solenoids, one attractor and one repeller. These manifolds contain half of Prism manifolds, Poincar\'e's homology 3--sphere and many other Seifert manifolds, all integer Dehn surgeries on the figure eight knot, also many connected sums.

We propose and demonstrate a scheme to realize a high-efficiency truly quantum random number generator (RNG) at room temperature (RT). Using an effective extractor with simple time bin encoding method, the avalanche pulses of avalanche photodiode (APD) are converted into high-quality random numbers (RNs) that are robust to slow varying noise such as fluctuations of pulse intensity and temperature. A light source is compatible but not necessary in this scheme. Read More

Scalability issues may prevent users from verifying critical properties of a complex hardware design. In this situation, we propose to synthesize a "safety shield" that is attached to the design to enforce the properties at run time. Shield synthesis can succeed where model checking and reactive synthesis fail, because it only considers a small set of critical properties, as opposed to the complex design, or the complete specification in the case of reactive synthesis.

CT and MRI are the two most widely used imaging modalities in healthcare, each with its own merits and drawbacks. Combining these techniques in one machine could provide unprecedented resolution and sensitivity in a single scan, and serve as an ideal platform to explore physical coupling of x-ray excitation and magnetic resonance. Molecular probes such as functionalized nanophosphors present an opportunity to demonstrate a synergy between these modalities. Read More

Electrostatic doping in materials can lead to various exciting electronic properties, such as metal-insulator transition and superconductivity, by altering the Fermi level position or introducing exotic phases. Cd3As2, a three-dimensional (3D) analog of graphene with extraordinary carrier mobility, was predicted to be a 3D Dirac semimetal, a feature confirmed by recent experiments. However, most research so far has been focused on metallic bulk materials that are known to possess ultra-high mobility and giant magnetoresistance but limited carrier transport tunability.

Quantum state tomography (QST) is a universal tool for the design and optimization of entangled-photon sources. It typically requires single-photon detectors and coincidence measurements. Recently, it was suggested that the information provided by the QST of photon pairs generated by spontaneous parametric down-conversion could be obtained by exploiting the stimulated version of this process, namely difference frequency generation.

Most, if not all, % FVC implementations employ the Gaussian mixture model (GMM) to characterize the generation process of local features. This choice has shown to be sufficient for traditional low dimensional local features, e. Read More
