We consider a possible framework to investigate inhomogeneity of the dark energy. Since the Schwarzschild de Sitter spacetime is static, if we take the dark energy state parameter to be $w=-1+\delta w$ with $|\delta w| \ll1$, apparently we still could expect an effectively static geometry, in the attraction dominated region inside the maximum turn around radius of a cosmic structure. In this scenario, using the bending of light data, we investigate how large $\delta w$ can actually be. Read More

First principles pseudopotential calculations have been performed for the first time to investigate the phonon dispersion, thermodynamic and optical properties including charge density, Fermi surface, Mulliken population analysis, theoretical Vickers hardness of predicted MAX phase Sc2InC. We revisited the structural, elastic and electronic properties of the compound which assessed the reliability of our calculations. The analysis of the elastic constants and the phonon dispersion along with phonon density of states indicates the mechanical stability and dynamical stability of the MAX phase. Read More

For the first time, we have reported in this study an ab initio investigation on elastic properties, Debye temperature, Mulliken population, Vickers hardness, and charge density of superconducting ScRhP and ScIrP phosphides. The optimized cell parameters show fair agreement with experimental results. The elastic constants and moduli, Poisson's as well as Pugh's ratio and elastic anisotropy factors have also been calculated to understand the mechanical behavior of these ternary compounds.

Deep convolutional neural networks (CNNs) have outperformed existing object recognition and detection algorithms. On the other hand satellite imagery captures scenes that are diverse. This paper describes a deep learning approach that analyzes a geo referenced satellite image and efficiently detects built structures in it. Read More

In this article, a new approach based on linear algebra is adopted to study a hybrid Sheffer polynomial sequences. The recurrence relations and differential equation for these polynomials are derived by using the properties and relationships between the Pascal functional matrices and the Wronskian matrices. The corresponding results for some mixed type Sheffer polynomials are also obtained. Read More

This paper aims to bridge the affective gap between image content and the emotional response of the viewer it elicits by using High-Level Concepts (HLCs). In contrast to previous work that relied solely on low-level features or used convolutional neural network (CNN) as a black-box, we use HLCs generated by pretrained CNNs in an explicit way to investigate the relations/associations between these HLCs and a (small) set of Ekman's emotional classes. As a proof-of-concept, we first propose a linear admixture model for modeling these relations, and the resulting computational framework allows us to determine the associations between each emotion class and certain HLCs (objects and places).

This article briefly reviews the significance nano-lubricants and assesses their effectiveness to provide the most promising approaches to reduce the friction and anti-wear/scuffing over the boundary regime. The main purpose of this review is to summarize the present knowledge about major advantages of the nanomaterials as nanolubricant additives in boundary lubrication. It is very complex regime involving surface topography, metallurgy, physical adsorption and chemical reactions. Read More

We present a new class of service for location based social networks, called the Flexible Group Spatial Keyword Query, which enables a group of users to collectively find a point of interest (POI) that optimizes an aggregate cost function combining both spatial distances and keyword similarities. In addition, our query service allows users to consider the tradeoffs between obtaining a sub-optimal solution for the entire group and obtaining an optimimized solution but only for a subgroup. We propose algorithms to process three variants of the query: (i) the group nearest neighbor with keywords query, which finds a POI that optimizes the aggregate cost function for the whole group of size n, (ii) the subgroup nearest neighbor with keywords query, which finds the optimal subgroup and a POI that optimizes the aggregate cost function for a given subgroup size m (m <= n), and (iii) the multiple subgroup nearest neighbor with keywords query, which finds optimal subgroups and corresponding POIs for each of the subgroup sizes in the range [m, n].

We investigate the nonclassicality of an open quantum system using Leggett-Garg inequality (LGI) which test the correlations of a single system measured at different times. Violation of LGI implies nonclassical behavior of the open system. We investigate the violation of the Leggett-Garg inequality for a two level system (qubit) spontaneously decaying under a general non-Markovian dissipative environment. Read More

Let $\mathcal{S}$ denote the class of analytic and univalent functions in $\mathbb{D}:=\{z\in\mathbb{C}:\, |z|<1\}$ of the form $f(z)= z+\sum_{n=2}^{\infty}a_n z^n$. In this paper, we determine the sharp estimates for the Toeplitz determinants whose elements are the Taylor coefficients of functions in $\mathcal{S}$ and its certain subclasses. Moreover, we point out some flaw in the papers [6,7] in this direction and correct the relevant results. Read More

A spacetime denotes a pure radiation field if its energy momentum tensor represents a situation in which all the energy is transported in one direction with the speed of light. In 1989, Wils and later in 1997 Ludwig and Edgar studied the physical properties of pure radiation metrics, which are conformally related to a vacuum spacetime. In the present paper we investigate the curvature properties of special type of pure radiation metrics presented by Ludwig and Edgar. Read More

We study the dynamics of genuine multipartite entanglement for quantum systems upto four qubits interacting with general collective dephasing process. Using a computable entanglement monotone for multipartite systems, we observe the feature of freezing dynamics of genuine entanglement for three and four qubits entangled states. We compare the dynamics with that of random states and find that most states exibit this feature. Read More

-Recent advances in microelectronics have enabled the realization of Wireless Body Area Networks (WBANs). However , the massive growth in wireless devices and the push for interconnecting these devices to form an Internet of Things (IoT) can be challenging for WBANs; hence robust communication is necessary through careful medium access arbitration. In this paper, we propose a new protocol to enable WBAN operation within an IoT. Read More

We outline a general framework to use coordinated multi-point (CoMP) transmission technology in downlink multi-cell non-orthogonal multiple access (NOMA) systems considering distributed power allocation at each cell. In this framework, CoMP transmission is used for users experiencing strong receive-signals from multiple cells while each cell adopts NOMA for resource allocation to its active users. After a brief review of the working principles of different CoMP schemes, we identify their applicability and necessary conditions for their use in downlink multi-cell NOMA system. Read More

We report measurements on yttrium iron garnet (YIG) thin films grown on both gadolinium gallium garnet (GGG) and yttrium aluminium garnet (YAG) substrates, with and without thin Pt top layers. We provide three principal results: the observation of an interfacial region at the Pt/YIG interface, we place a limit on the induced magnetism of the Pt layer and confirm the existence of an interfacial layer at the GGG/YIG interface. Polarised neutron reflectometry (PNR) was used to give depth dependence of both the structure and magnetism of these structures. Read More

By combining bulk sensitive soft-X-ray angular-resolved photoemission spectroscopy and accurate first-principles calculations we explored the bulk electronic properties of WTe$_2$, a candidate type-II Weyl semimetal featuring a large non-saturating magnetoresistance. Despite the layered geometry suggesting a two-dimensional electronic structure, we find a three-dimensional electronic dispersion. We report an evident band dispersion in the reciprocal direction perpendicular to the layers, implying that electrons can also travel coherently when crossing from one layer to the other. Read More

Recent advances in microelectronics have enabled the realization of Wireless Body Area Networks (WBANs). Increasing the transmission power of WBAN's nodes improves the Signal to Interference plus Noise Ratio (SINR), and hence decreases the bit error probability. However, this increase may impose interference on nodes within the same WBAN or on other nodes of nearby coexisting WBANs, as these WBANs may use similar frequencies. Read More

The overlap of transmission ranges among multiple Wireless Body Area Networks (WBANs) is referred to as coexistence. The interference is most likely to affect the communication links and degrade the performance when sensors of different WBANs simultaneously transmit using the same channel. In this paper, we propose a distributed approach that adapts to the size of the network, i. Read More

Using first-principles calculations, the structural, elastic and electronic properties of MoAlB have been investigated for the first time.

The curvature properties of Robinson-Trautman metric have been investigated. It is shown that Robinson-Trautman metric admits several kinds of pseudosymmetric type structures such as Weyl pseudosymmetric, Ricci pseudosymmetric, pseudosymmetric Weyl conformal curvature tensor etc. Also it is shown that the difference $R\cdot R - Q(S,R)$ is linearly dependent with $Q(g,C)$ but the metric is not Ricci generalized pseudosymmetric.

We present a novel solution for Channel Assignment Problem (CAP) in Device-to-Device (D2D) wireless networks that takes into account the throughput estimation noise. CAP is known to be NP-hard in the literature and there is no practical optimal learning algorithm that takes into account the estimation noise. In this paper, we first formulate the CAP as a stochastic optimization problem to maximize the expected sum data rate. Read More

We use ferromagnetic resonance to study the current-induced torques in YIG/heavy metal bilayers. YIG samples with thickness varying from 14.8 nm to 80 nm, with Pt or Ta thin film on top, are measured by applying a microwave current into the heavy metals and measuring the longitudinal DC voltage generated by both spin rectification and spin pumping.

In this work the effects of coherent radiation (Laser) and incoherent radiation (Halogen lamp) during the electrochemical etching process on the structural characteristics of n-type PSi samples were investigated. The porosity values were measured by depending on the microstructure analyses and Gravimetric measurements. Surface morphology, layer thickness, pore diameter, pore shape, wall thickness and etching rate were studied by depending on Scanning electron-microscopic (SEM) images Read More

The propagation characteristics and interactions between the dust acoustic (DA) one and multi solitons in an unmagnetized dusty plasmas composing negatively charged mobile dust, Boltzmann distributed electrons, nonextensive distributed cold and nonthermal distributed hot ions are studied. The well known extended Poincar Lighthill Kuo (PLK) method is employed to derive the two sided Korteweg de Vries (KdV) equations. The solutions of KdV equations are constructed using the Hirota method both for one and multi solitons. Read More

We investigate the application of non-orthogonal multiple access (NOMA) with successive interference cancellation (SIC) in downlink multiuser multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) cellular systems, where the total number of receive antennas at user equipment (UE) ends in a cell is more than the number of transmit antennas at the base station (BS). We first dynamically group the UE receive antennas into a number of clusters equal to or more than the number of BS transmit antennas. A single beamforming vector is then shared by all the receive antennas in a cluster. Read More

The phenomenon whereby atoms take a positive or negative charge by losing or gaining one or more electrons forms the basis of the known chemical or physical processes. However, atoms that have outer state or outer states unfilled excite electron on absorbing heat energy depending on the nature of electronic gauge whereas, deform or stretch on impinging electron streams or striking electrons under the process of synergy. In the case of inert gas atoms, an alternative process takes place. Read More

By using Modified simple equation method, we study the Cahn Allen equation which arises in many scientific applications such as mathematical biology, quantum mechanics and plasma physics. As a result, the existence of solitary wave solutions of the Cahn Allen equation is obtained. Exact explicit solutions interms of hyperbolic solutions of the associated Cahn Allen equation are characterized with some free parameters. Read More

A Jimbo-Miwa like nonlinear differential equation in (3+1)-dimensions is developed through a generalized bilinear equation with the generalized bilinear derivatives. Based on the generalized bilinear forms, two classes of lump solutions, rationally localized in all directions in the space, and a class of complex lump type solution are generated from a Maple search of quadratic polynomial function solution to the proposed Jimbo-Miwa like equation. The apposite conditions to assurance analyticity and rational localization of the solutions are offered. Read More

When sensors of different coexisting wireless body area networks (WBANs) transmit at the same time using the same channel, a co-channel interference is experienced and hence the performance of the involved WBANs may be degraded. In this paper, we exploit the 16 channels available in the 2.4 GHz international band of ZIGBEE, and propose a distributed scheme that avoids interference through predictable channel hopping based on Latin rectangles, namely, CHIM.

The performance of wireless body area networks (WBANs) may be degraded due to co-channel interference, i.e., when sensors of different coexisting WBANs transmit at the same time-slots using the same channel. Read More

In the synthesis of various colloids, thin thick films, particles and other materials where bottom-to-top approach is involved, it is ambiguous to understand structure evolution. Atoms of electronic transitions are entitled to evolve structures along with modified ones. When an electron de-excites where prior to that excited on getting free from the inherent force of nucleus, it configures the force energy shape like Normal distribution called unit photon, that photon on compressing arms converts into merged photon which can be absorbed by the suitably located atom resulting into excite its electron.

We term a community as the most influential if the community has the highest influence among all other communities in the entire network. Influence of a community depends on the impact of the contents (e. Read More

In this paper, we coin the term Policy Enforcement as a Service (PEPS), which enables the provision of innovative inter-layer and inter-domain Access Control. We leverage the architecture of Software-Defined-Network (SDN) to introduce a common network-level enforcement point, which is made available to a range of access control systems. With our PEPS model, it is possible to have a `defense in depth' protection model and drop unsuccessful access requests before engaging the data provider (e. Read More

In many materials, formation of building blocks and their controlled-angle packing results into various geometric anisotropic shaped particles. These trends are more pronounced in atoms of more electrons executing transitions, which support our view that binding of atoms in elements of solid state behavior takes place by means of electron-dynamics. Monolayer tiny particles geometry isosceles triangle shape is vital, as they are the building blocks of all geometric anisotropic shaped particles. Read More

We present a comprehensive investigation of the polarization properties of non-polar a-plane InGaN quantum dots (QDs) and their origin with statistically significant experimental data and rigorous k.p modelling. The unbiased selection and study of 180 individual QDs allow us to compute an average polarization degree of 0. Read More

A new work has been proposed in this paper in order to overcome one of the main drawbacks that found in the Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplex (OFDM) systems, namely Peak to Average Power Ratio (PAPR). Furthermore, this work will be compared with a previously published work that uses the neural network (NN) as a solution to remedy this deficiency. The proposed work could be considered as a special averaging technique (SAT), which consists of wavelet transformation in its first stage, a globally statistical adaptive detecting algorithm as a second stage; and in the third stage it replaces the affected peaks by making use of moving average filter process.

We investigate the dynamics of entanglement and nonlocality for multipartite quantum systems under collective dephasing. Using an exact and computable measure for genuine entanglement, we demonstrate the possibility of a non trivial phenomenon of time-invariant entanglement for multipartite quantum systems. We find that for four qubits, there exist quantum states, which are changing continously nevertheless their genuine entanglement remains constant. Read More

For an analytic and univalent function $f$ in the unit disk $\mathbb{D}:=\{z\in\mathbb{C}:|z|<1\}$ with the normalization $f(0)=0=f'(0)-1$, the logarithmic coefficients $\gamma_n$ are defined by $\log \frac{f(z)}{z}= 2\sum_{n=1}^{\infty} \gamma_n z^n$. In the present paper, we consider the class of close-to-convex functions (with argument $0$), and determine the sharp upper bound of $|\gamma_3|$ for such functions $f$, which proves a recent conjecture of the first and third authors [1].

By combining the concepts of superposition coding at the transmitter(s) and successive interference cancellation (SIC) at the receiver(s), non-orthogonal multiple access (NOMA) has recently emerged as a promising multiple access technique for 5G wireless technology. In this article, we first discuss the fundamentals of uplink and downlink NOMA transmissions and outline their key distinctions (in terms of implementation complexity, detection and decoding at the SIC receiver(s), incurred intra-cell and inter-cell interferences). Later, for both downlink and uplink NOMA, we theoretically derive the NOMA dominant condition for each individual user in a two-user NOMA cluster. Read More

Massive Machine-Type Communications (MTC) over cellular networks is expected to be an integral part of wireless "Smart City" applications. The Long Term Evolution (LTE)/LTE-Advanced (LTE-A) technology is a major candidate for provisioning of MTC applications. However, due to the diverse characteristics of payload size, transmission periodicity, power efficiency, and quality of service (QoS) requirement, MTC poses huge challenges to LTE/LTE-A technologies.

In this paper, first we briefly describe the differences in the working principles of uplink and downlink NOMA transmissions. Then, for both uplink and downlink NOMA, we formulate a sum-throughput maximization problem in a cell such that the user clustering (i.e. Read More

The logarithmic coefficients $\gamma_n$ of an analytic and univalent function $f$ in the unit disk $\mathbb{D}=\{z\in\mathbb{C}:|z|<1\}$ with the normalization $f(0)=0=f'(0)-1$ are defined by $\log \frac{f(z)}{z}= 2\sum_{n=1}^{\infty} \gamma_n z^n$. In the present paper, we consider close-to-convex functions (with argument $0$) with respect to odd starlike functions and determine the sharp upper bound of $|\gamma_n|$, $n=1,2,3$ for such functions $f$.

In this paper, we provide an operational criterion for controlled dense coding with a general class of three-qubit non-trivial pure entangled states. A general three-qubit pure entangled state can be classified into two inequivalent classes according to their genuine tripartite entanglement. We claim that if a three-qubit state shows entanglement characteristic similar to $GHZ$-class then such non-trivial tripartite states are useful in {\it controlled dense coding} whereas states belonging to $W$-class are not useful for that.

For $-1\le B1$. For $f\in\mathcal{S}^*(A,B)$ and $\lambda>0$, we shall estimate the absolute value of the Taylor coefficients $a_n(-\lambda,f)$ of the analytic function $(f(z)/z)^{-\lambda}$. Using this we shall determine the coefficient estimate for inverses of functions in the classes $\mathcal{S}^*(A,B)$ and $\Sigma^*(A,B)$. Read More
