We discuss the construction of robust preconditioners for finite element approximations of Biot's consolidation model in poroelasticity. More precisely, we study finite element methods based on generalizations of the Hellinger-Reissner principle of linear elasticity, where the stress tensor is one of the unknowns. The Biot model has a number of applications in science, medicine, and engineering. Read More

A highly elongated plasma is desirable in order to increase plasma pressure and energy confinement to maximize fusion power output. However, there is a limit to the maximum achievable elongation which is set by vertical instabilities driven by the $n=0$ MHD mode. This limit can be increased by optimizing several parameters characterizing the plasma and the wall. Read More

New CCD photometry of seven successive years from 2010 is presented for the HW Vir-type eclipsing binary 2M 1533+3759. Using the $VI$ light curves together with the radial-velocity data given by For et al. (2010), we determined the absolute parameters of each component to be $M_1$ = 0. Read More

Two hybrid van der Waals density functionals (vdW-DFs) are constructed using 25%, Fock exchange with i) the consistent-exchange vdW-DF-cx functional and ii) with the vdW-DF2 functional. The ability to describe covalent and non-covalent binding properties of molecules are assessed. For properties related to covalent binding, atomization energies (G2-1 set), molecular reaction energies (G2RC set), as well as ionization energies (G21IP set) are benchmarked against experimental reference values.

This study aims to search for the existence of intraday variability (IDV) of BL Lac object S5 0716+714 at high radio frequencies for which the interstellar scintillation effect is not significant. Using the 21-meter radio telescope of the Korean VLBI Network (KVN), we present results of multi-epoch simultaneous dual-frequency radio observations. Single-dish observations of S5 0716+714 were simultaneously conducted at 21. Read More

We propose a general framework of the quantum/quasi-classical transformations by introducing the concept of quasi-joint-spectral distribution (QJSD). Specifically, we show that the QJSDs uniquely yield various pairs of quantum/quasi-classical transformations, including the Wigner-Weyl transform. We also discuss the statistical behaviour of combinations of generally non-commutin quantum observables by introducing the concept of quantum correlations and conditional expectations defined analogously to the classical counterpart.

While humans easily recognize relations between data from different domains without any supervision, learning to automatically discover them is in general very challenging and needs many ground-truth pairs that illustrate the relations. To avoid costly pairing, we address the task of discovering cross-domain relations given unpaired data. We propose a method based on generative adversarial networks that learns to discover relations between different domains (DiscoGAN). Read More

Device-to-Device (D2D) communication is mainly launched by the transmission requirements between devices for specific applications such as Proximity Services in Long-Term Evolution Advanced (LTE-A) networks, and each application will form a group of devices for the network-covered and network-absent D2D communications. Although there are many privacy concerns in D2D communication, they have not been well-addressed in current communication standards. This work introduces network-covered and network-absent authenticated key exchange protocols for D2D communications to guarantee accountable group anonymity, end-to-end security to network operators, as well as traceability and revocability for accounting and management requirements.

This paper studies a class of mean field games (MFGs) with singular controls of bounded velocity. By relaxing the absolute continuity of the control process, it generalizes the MFG framework of Lasry and Lions [36] and Huang, Malham\'e, and Caines [29]. It provides a unique solution to the MFG with explicit optimal control policies and establishes the $\epsilon$-Nash equilibrium of the corresponding $N$-player game. Read More

In this paper, we investigate conditions to represent derivative price under XVA explicitly. As long as we consider different borrowing/lending rates, XVA problem becomes a non-linear equa- tion and this makes finding explicit solution of XVA difficult. It is shown that the associated valuation problem is actually linear under some proper conditions so that we can have the same complexity in pricing as classical pricing theory. Read More

We searched for the bound state of the neutron-rich $\Lambda$-hypernucleus ${}^{6}_{\Lambda}$H, using the ${}^{6}$Li($\pi^{-}, K^{+}$)X double charge-exchange reaction at a $\pi^{-}$ beam momentum of 1.2 GeV/c at J-PARC. A total of $1. Read More

Recently, the end-to-end approach that learns hierarchical representations from raw data using deep convolutional neural networks has been successfully explored in the image, text and speech domains. This approach was applied to musical signals as well but has been not fully explored yet. To this end, we propose sample-level deep convolutional neural networks which learn representations from very small grains of waveforms (e. Read More

(BCGs) and their host galaxy clusters. Using galaxy clusters at $0.1

Music auto-tagging is often handled in a similar manner to image classification by regarding the 2D audio spectrogram as image data. However, music auto-tagging is distinguished from image classification in that the tags are highly diverse and have different levels of abstractions. Considering this issue, we propose a convolutional neural networks (CNN)-based architecture that embraces multi-level and multi-scaled features. Read More

Nonlinear wave interactions affect the evolution of steep wave groups, their breaking and the associated kinematic field. Laboratory experiments are performed to investigate the effect of the underlying focussing mechanism on the shape of the breaking wave and its velocity field. In this regard, it is found that the shape of the wave spectrum plays a substantial role. Read More

Motivated by understanding the quality of tractable convex relaxations of intractable polytopes, Ko et al. gave a closed-form expression for the volume of a standard relaxation $\mathscr{Q}(G)$ of the boolean quadric polytope $\mathscr{P}(G)$ of the complete graph $G=K_n$. We extend this work to structured sparse graphs, giving: (i) an efficient algorithm for $vol(\mathscr{Q}(G))$ when $G$ has bounded tree width, (ii) closed-form expressions (and asymptotic behaviors) for $vol(\mathscr{Q}(G))$ for all stars, paths, and cycles, and (iii) a closed-form expression for $vol(\mathscr{P}(G))$ for all cycles.

The local electronic and atomic structures of the high-quality single crystal of SrFeO3-{delta} ({delta}~0.19) were studied using temperature-dependent x-ray absorption and valence-band photoemission spectroscopy (VB-PES) to investigate the origin of anisotropic resistivity in the ab-plane and along the c-axis close to the region of thermal hysteresis (near temperature for susceptibility maximum, Tm~78 K). All experiments herein were conducted during warming and cooling processes. Read More

A measurement of the inclusive production cross section of isolated prompt photons in proton-antiproton collisions at center-of-mass energy $\sqrt{s}$=1.96TeV is presented. The results are obtained using the full Run II data sample collected with the Collider Detector at the Fermilab Tevatron, which corresponds to an integrated luminosity of 9. Read More

As the first step for approaching the uniqueness and blowup properties of the solutions of the stochastic wave equations with multiplicative noise, we analyze the conditions for the uniqueness and blowup properties of the solution $(X_t,Y_t)$ of the equations $dX_t= Y_tdt$, $dY_t = |X_t|^\alpha dB_t$, $(X_0,Y_0)=(x_0,y_0)$. In particular, we prove that solutions are nonunique if $0<\alpha<1$ and $(x_0,y_0)=(0,0)$ and unique if $1/2<\alpha<1$ and $(x_0,y_0)\neq(0,0)$. We also show that blowup in finite time holds if $\alpha>1$ and $(x_0,y_0)\neq(0,0)$. Read More

We study the mass spectrum of mesons at high temperature in $SU(2)$ gauge theory with two flavors of Dirac fundamental fermions. Numerical simulations are carried out on anisotropic lattices using Wilson fermions, with lattice parameters tuned so that Euclidean symmetry is restored at low energy. We determine the pseudo-critical temperature $T_c$ using renormalized Polyakov loops. Read More

The STAR Collaboration reports on the photoproduction of $\pi^+\pi^-$ pairs in gold-gold collisions at a center-of-mass energy of 200 GeV/nucleon-pair. These pion pairs are produced when a nearly-real photon emitted by one ion scatters from the other ion. We fit the $\pi^+\pi^-$ invariant mass spectrum with a combination of $\rho$ and $\omega$ resonances and a direct $\pi^+\pi^-$ continuum. Read More

We obtain the optimal Bayesian minimax rate for the unconstrained large covariance matrix of multivariate normal sample with mean zero, when both the sample size, n, and the dimension, p, of the covariance matrix tend to infinity. Traditionally the posterior convergence rate is used to compare the frequentist asymptotic performance of priors, but defining the optimality with it is elusive. We propose a new decision theoretic framework for prior selection and define Bayesian minimax rate. Read More

Deep learning has been proven to yield reliably generalizable answers to numerous classification and decision tasks. Here, we demonstrate for the first time, to our knowledge, that deep neural networks (DNNs) can be trained to solve inverse problems in computational imaging. We experimentally demonstrate a lens-less imaging system where a DNN was trained to recover a phase object given a raw intensity image recorded some distance away. Read More

We report 3D coherent diffractive imaging of Au/Pd core-shell nanoparticles with 6 nm resolution on 5-6 femtosecond timescales. We measured single-shot diffraction patterns of core-shell nanoparticles using very intense and short x-ray free electron laser pulses. By taking advantage of the curvature of the Ewald sphere and the symmetry of the nanoparticle, we reconstructed the 3D electron density of 34 core-shell structures from single-shot diffraction patterns.

We present independent measurements of the masses of the galaxy clusters in the local universe by employing the Dynamical Mass Estimator (DME) originally developed by Falco et al in 2014. In the catalog of the galaxy groups/clusters constructed by Tempel et al. from the Sloan Digital Sky Survey Data Release 10, we search for those as the targets around which the neighbor galaxies constitute thin straight filamentary structures in the configuration space spanned by the redshifts and the projected distances.

We develop hybridizable/hybridized discontinuous Galerkin methods for stationary linearized incompressible magnetohydrodynamics equations on triangular/tetrahedral meshes. For discretizations we consider a system combining the dual mixed form of the Oseen equation and the mixed form of the Maxwell equation and use polynomial spaces of order $k \geq 1$ for all the unknowns. We carried out the a priori error analysis and showed that our methods provide numerical solutions for arbitrarily high order polynomials for sufficiently regular solutions. Read More

The dynamic response of dipole skyrmions in Fe/Gd multilayer films is investigated by ferromagnetic resonance measurements and compared to micromagnetic simulations. We detail thickness and temperature dependent studies on the observed modes as well as the effects of magnetic field history on the resonant properties. The complexity of the magnetic spin configurations of dipole skyrmions which consists of a domain wall that is Bloch-like at the center and more N\'eel-like toward each surface results in a multitude of localized spin-wave modes that can vary across the thickness of the film when these textures are perturbed with microwave fields.

Network topology evolves through time. A dynamic network model should account for both the temporal dependencies between graphs observed in time, as well as the structural dependencies inherent in each observed graph. We propose and investigate a family of dynamic network models, known as varying-coefficient exponential random graph models (VCERGMs), that characterize the evolution of network topology through smoothly varying parameters in an exponential family of distributions.

A practical rate-matching system for constructing rate-compatible polar codes is proposed. The proposed polar code circular buffer rate-matching is suitable for transmissions on communication channels that support hybrid automatic repeat request (HARQ) communications, as well as for flexible resource-element rate-matching on single transmission channels. Our proposed circular buffer rate matching scheme also incorporates a bit-mapping scheme for transmission on bit-interleaved coded modulation (BICM) channels using higher order modulations.

We present a clustering comparison of 12 galaxy formation models (including Semi-Analytic Models (SAMs) and Halo Occupation Distribution (HOD) models) all run on halo catalogues and merger trees extracted from a single {\Lambda}CDM N-body simulation. We compare the results of the measurements of the mean halo occupation numbers, the radial distribution of galaxies in haloes and the 2-Point Correlation Functions (2PCF). We also study the implications of the different treatments of orphan (galaxies not assigned to any dark matter subhalo) and non-orphan galaxies in these measurements. Read More

Localized spins and itinerant electrons rarely coexist in geometrically-frustrated spinel lattices. We show that the spinel CoV2O4 stands at the crossover from insulating to itinerant behavior and exhibits a complex interplay between localized spins and itinerant electrons. In contrast to the expected paramagnetism, localized spins supported by enhanced exchange couplings are frustrated by the effects of delocalized electrons. Read More

First-principles-based materials screening is systematically performed to discover new combinations of chemical elements possibly making shape-memory alloys (SMAs). The B2, D03, and L21 crystal structures are considered as the parent phases, and the 2H and 6M structures are considered as the martensitic phases. 3,384 binary and 3,243 ternary alloys (6,627 in total) with stoichiometric composition ratios are investigated by the materials screening in terms of energetic and dynamical stabilities of the martensitic phases as well as structural compatibility between the parent and the martensitic phases.

The LUX-ZEPLIN (LZ) experiment will search for dark matter particle interactions with a detector containing a total of 10 tonnes of liquid xenon within a double-vessel cryostat. The large mass and proximity of the cryostat to the active detector volume demand the use of material with extremely low intrinsic radioactivity. We report on the radioassay campaign conducted to identify suitable metals, the determination of factors limiting radiopure production, and the selection of titanium for construction of the LZ cryostat and other detector components.

The Pixel-Imaging Mass Spectrometry (PImMS) camera allows for 3D charged particle imaging measurements, in which the particle time-of-flight is recorded along with $(x,y)$ position. Coupling the PImMS camera to an ultrafast pump-probe velocity-map imaging spectroscopy apparatus therefore provides a route to time-resolved multi-mass ion imaging, with both high count rates and large dynamic range, thus allowing for rapid measurements of complex photofragmentation dynamics. Furthermore, the use of vacuum ultraviolet wavelengths for the probe pulse allows for an enhanced observation window for the study of excited state molecular dynamics in small polyatomic molecules having relatively high ionization potentials.

A standard method to obtain information on a quantum state is to measure marginal distributions along many different axes in phase space, which forms a basis of quantum state tomography. We theoretically propose and experimentally demonstrate a general framework to manifest nonclassicality by observing a single marginal distribution only, which provides a novel insight into nonclassicality and a practical applicability to various quantum systems. Our approach maps the 1-dim marginal distribution into a factorized 2-dim distribution by multiplying the measured distribution or the vacuum-state distribution along an orthogonal axis. Read More

We present the results of an optical spectroscopic monitoring program targeting NGC 5548 as part of a larger multi-wavelength reverberation mapping campaign. The campaign spanned six months and achieved an almost daily cadence with observations from five ground-based telescopes. The H$\beta$ and He II $\lambda$4686 broad emission-line light curves lag that of the 5100 $\AA$ optical continuum by $4. Read More

This paper is concerned with inference in regression models with either a kink or a jump at an unknown threshold, particularly when we do not know whether the kink or jump is the true specification. One of our main results shows that the statistical properties of the estimator of the threshold parameter are substantially different under the two settings, with a slower rate of convergence under the kink design, and more surprisingly slower than if the correct kink specification were employed in the estimation. We thus propose two testing procedures to distinguish between them. Read More

The 7th Symposium on Educational Advances in Artificial Intelligence (EAAI'17, co-chaired by Sven Koenig and Eric Eaton) launched the EAAI New and Future AI Educator Program to support the training of early-career university faculty, secondary school faculty, and future educators (PhD candidates or postdocs who intend a career in academia). As part of the program, awardees were asked to address one of the following "blue sky" questions: * How could/should Artificial Intelligence (AI) courses incorporate ethics into the curriculum? * How could we teach AI topics at an early undergraduate or a secondary school level? * AI has the potential for broad impact to numerous disciplines. How could we make AI education more interdisciplinary, specifically to benefit non-engineering fields? This paper is a collection of their responses, intended to help motivate discussion around these issues in AI education. Read More

CuAl2O4 is a normal spinel oxide having quantum spin, S=1/2 for Cu2+. It is a rather unique feature that the Cu2+ ions of CuAl2O4 sit at a tetrahedral position, not like the usual octahedral position for many oxides. At low temperatures, it exhibits all the thermodynamic evidence of a quantum spin glass. Read More

Suppose that $\{G_n\}$ is a sequence of finite graphs such that each $G_n$ is the tangency graph of a sphere packing in $\mathbb{R}^d$. Let $\rho_n$ be a uniformly random vertex of $G_n$ and suppose that $(G,\rho)$ is the distributional limit of $\{(G_n,\rho_n)\}$ in the sense of Benjamini and Schramm. Then the conformal growth exponent of $(G,\rho)$ is at most $d$. Read More

When a node in a distributed storage system fails, it needs to be promptly repaired to maintain system integrity. While typical erasure codes can provide a significant storage advantage over replication, they suffer from poor repair efficiency. Locally repairable codes (LRCs) tackle this issue by reducing the number of nodes participating in the repair process (locality), with the cost of reduced minimum distance. Read More

Galaxy mass assembly is an end product of structure formation in the $\Lambda$CDM cosmology. As an extension of Lee \& Yi (2013), we investigate the assembly history of stellar components in galaxies as a function of halo environments and stellar mass using semi-analytic approaches. In our fiducial model, halo mass intrinsically determines the formation and assembly of the stellar mass. Read More
