Pseudo-one dimensional (pseudo-1D) materials are a new-class of materials where atoms are arranged in chain like structures in two-dimensions (2D). Examples include recently discovered black phosphorus, ReS2 and ReSe2 from transition metal dichalcogenides, TiS3 and ZrS3 from transition metal trichalcogenides and most recently GaTe. The presence of structural anisotropy impacts their physical properties and leads to direction dependent light-matter interactions, dichroic optical responses, high mobility channels, and anisotropic thermal conduction.

Transition metal oxides have been extensively studied and utilized as efficient catalysts. However, the strongly correlated behavior which often results in intriguing emergent phenomena in these materials has been mostly overlooked in understanding the electrochemical activities. Here, we demonstrate a close correlation between the phase transitions and oxygen evolution reaction (OER) in a strongly correlated SrRuO3. Read More

Convolutional autoregressive models have recently demonstrated state-of-the-art performance on a number of generation tasks. While fast, parallel training methods have been crucial for their success, generation is typically implemented in a na\"{i}ve fashion where redundant computations are unnecessarily repeated. This results in slow generation, making such models infeasible for production environments. Read More

Let $G$ be a finite group, $\Omega(G)$ be its Burnside ring, and $\Delta(G)$ its augmentation ideal. Denote by $\Delta^n(G)$ and $Q_n(G)$ the $n$-th power of $\Delta(G)$ and the $n$-th consecutive quotient group $\Delta^n(G)/\Delta^{n+1}(G)$, respectively. This paper provides an explicit $\mathbb{Z}$-basis for $\Delta^n(\mathcal{H})$ and determine the isomorphism class of $Q_n(\mathcal{H})$ for each positive integer $n$, where $\mathcal{H}=\langle g,h |\, g^{p^m}=h^p=1, h^{-1}gh=g^{p^{m-1}+1}\rangle$, $p$ is an odd prime.

We derive the Moser-Trudinger-Onofri inequalities on the 2-sphere and the 4-sphere as the limiting cases of the fractional power Sobolev inequalities on the same spaces, and justify our approach as the dimensional continuation argument initiated by Thomas P. Branson. Read More

Consider a random sample of $n$ independently and identically distributed $p$-dimensional normal random vectors. A test statistic for complete independence of high-dimensional normal distributions, proposed by Schott (2005), is defined as the sum of squared Pearson's correlation coefficients. A modified test statistic has been proposed by Mao (2014). Read More

Let $X$ be an observable random variable with unknown distribution function $F(x) = \mathbb{P}(X \leq x), - \infty < x < \infty$, and let \[\ \theta = \sup\left \{ r \geq 0:~ \mathbb{E}|X|^{r} < \infty \right \}. \] We call $\theta$ the power of moments of the random variable $X$. Let $X_{1}, X_{2}, . Read More

Visual patterns represent the discernible regularity in the visual world. They capture the essential nature of visual objects or scenes. Understanding and modeling visual patterns is a fundamental problem in visual recognition that has wide ranging applications. Read More

Temporal action localization is an important yet challenging problem. Given a long, untrimmed video consisting of multiple action instances and complex background contents, we need not only to recognize their action categories, but also to localize the start time and end time of each instance. Many state-of-the-art systems use segment-level classifiers to select and rank proposal segments of pre-determined boundaries. Read More

Visual relations, such as "person ride bike" and "bike next to car", offer a comprehensive scene understanding of an image, and have already shown their great utility in connecting computer vision and natural language. However, due to the challenging combinatorial complexity of modeling subject-predicate-object relation triplets, very little work has been done to localize and predict visual relations. Inspired by the recent advances in relational representation learning of knowledge bases and convolutional object detection networks, we propose a Visual Translation Embedding network (VTransE) for visual relation detection.

We have studied ferroelectricity and photovoltaic effects in atomic layer deposited (ALD) 40-nm thick SnTiO$_{x}$ films deposited directly onto p-type (001)Si substrate. These films showed well-saturated, square and repeatable hysteresis loops with remnant polarization of 1.5 $\mu$C/cm$^{2}$ at room temperature, as detected by out-of-plane polarization versus electric field (P-E) and field cycling measurements.

The atomic-scale synthesis of artificial oxide heterostructures offers new opportunities to create novel states that do not occur in nature. The main challenge related to synthesizing these structures is obtaining atomically sharp interfaces with designed termination sequences. Here, we demonstrate that the oxygen pressure (PO2) during growth plays an important role in controlling the interfacial terminations of SrRuO3/BaTiO3/SrRuO3 (SRO/BTO/SRO) ferroelectric capacitors.

Consider the product of $m$ independent $n\times n$ random matrices from the spherical ensemble for $m\ge 1$. The empirical distribution based on the $n$ eigenvalues of the product is called the empirical spectral distribution. Two recent papers by G\"otze, K\"osters and Tikhomirov (2015) and Zeng (2016) obtain the limit of the empirical spectral distribution for the product when $m$ is a fixed integer. Read More

Most of the previous approaches to lyrics-to-audio alignment used a pre-developed automatic speech recognition (ASR) system that innately suffered from several difficulties to adapt the speech model to individual singers. A significant aspect missing in previous works is the self-learnability of repetitive vowel patterns in the singing voice, where the vowel part used is more consistent than the consonant part. Based on this, our system first learns a discriminative subspace of vowel sequences, based on weighted symmetric non-negative matrix factorization (WS-NMF), by taking the self-similarity of a standard acoustic feature as an input.

Physical-layer group secret-key (GSK) generation is an effective way of generating secret keys in wireless networks, wherein the nodes exploit inherent randomness in the wireless channels to generate group keys, which are subsequently applied to secure messages while broadcasting, relaying, and other network-level communications. While existing GSK protocols focus on securing the common source of randomness from external eavesdroppers, they assume that the legitimate nodes of the group are trusted. In this paper, we address insider attacks from the legitimate participants of the wireless network during the key generation process. Read More

The unification scheme of active galactic nuclei (AGNs) invokes an optically thick molecular torus component hiding the broad emission line region. Assuming the presence of a thick neutral component in the molecular torus characterized by a \ion{H}{I} column density > $10^{22}{\rm\ cm^{-2}}$, we propose that far UV radiation around Ly$\alpha$ can be significantly polarized through Rayleigh scattering. Adopting a Monte Carlo technique we compute polarization of Rayleigh scattered radiation near Ly$\alpha$ in a thick neutral region in the shape of a slab and a cylindrical shell. Read More

Electronic structures of Ge$_{1-x}$Sn$_{x}$ alloys (0 $\leq$ $x$ $\leq$ 1) are theoretically studied by nonlocal empirical pseudopotential method. For relaxed Ge$_{1-x}$Sn$_{x}$, a topological semimetal is found for $\textit x$ $>$ 41$\%$ with gapless and band inversion at ${\Gamma}$ point, while there is an indirect-direct bandgap transition at $x$ = 8.5$\%$.

Collider signals of dark photons are an exciting probe for new gauge forces and are characterized by events with boosted lepton jets. Existing techniques are efficient in searching for muonic lepton jets but due to substantial backgrounds have difficulty constraining lepton jets containing only electrons. This is unfortunate since upcoming intensity frontier experiments are sensitive to dark photon masses which only allow electron decays. Read More

This paper presents an efficient implementation of the Wavenet generation process called Fast Wavenet. Compared to a naive implementation that has complexity O(2^L) (L denotes the number of layers in the network), our proposed approach removes redundant convolution operations by caching previous calculations, thereby reducing the complexity to O(L) time. Timing experiments show significant advantages of our fast implementation over a naive one. Read More

The problem of testing mutually exclusive hypotheses with dependent test statistics is considered. Bayesian and frequentist approaches to multiplicity control are studied and compared to help gain understanding as to the effect of test statistic dependence on each approach. The Bayesian approach is shown to have excellent frequentist properties and is argued to be the most effective way of obtaining frequentist multiplicity control, without sacrificing power, when there is considerable test statistic dependence.

The Multilingual Visual Sentiment Ontology (MVSO) consists of 15,600 concepts in 12 different languages that are strongly related to emotions and sentiments expressed in images. These concepts are defined in the form of Adjective-Noun Pair (ANP), which are crawled and discovered from online image forum Flickr. In this work, we used Amazon Mechanical Turk as a crowd-sourcing platform to collect human judgments on sentiments expressed in images that are uniformly sampled over 3,911 English ANPs extracted from a tag-restricted subset of MVSO.

One-dimensional (1D) quantum systems, which are predicted to exhibit novel states of matter in theory, have been elusive in experiment. Here we report a superlattice method of creating artificial 1D quantum stripes, which offers dimensional tunability from two- to one-dimensions. As a model system, we have fabricated 1D iridium (Ir) stripes using a-axis oriented superlattices of a relativistic Mott insulator Sr2IrO4 and a wide bandgap insulator LaSrGaO4, both of which are crystals with layered structure.

Symbiotic stars are regarded as wide binary systems consisting of a hot white dwarf and a mass losing giant. They exhibit unique spectral features at 6825 \AA\ and 7082 \AA, which are formed via Raman scattering of \ion{O}{6}$\lambda\lambda$ 1032 and 1038 with atomic hydrogen. We adopt a Monte Carlo technique to generate the same number of \ion{O}{6}$\lambda$1032 and $\lambda$1038 line photons and compute the flux ratio $F(6825)/F(7082)$ of these Raman scattered \ion{O}{6} features formed in neutral regions with a simple geometric shape as a function of \ion{H}{1} column density $N_{HI}$.

Mobile applications and on-body devices are becoming increasingly ubiquitous tools for physical activity tracking. We propose utilizing a self-tracker's habits to support continuous prediction of whether they will reach their daily step goal, thus enabling a variety of potential persuasive interventions. Our aim is to improve the prediction by leveraging historical data and other qualitative (motivation for using the systems, location, gender) and, quantitative (age) features. Read More

The optimization of joint source and channel coding for a sequence of numerous progressive packets is a challenging problem. Further, the problem becomes more complicated if the space-time coding is also involved with the optimization in a multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) system. This is because the number of ways of jointly assigning channels codes and space-time codes to progressive packets is much larger than that of solely assigning channel codes to the packets.

Lecture notes are important for students to review and understand the key points in the class. Unfortunately, the students often miss or lose part of the lecture notes. In this paper, we design and implement an infrared sensor based system, InfraNotes, to automatically record the notes on the board by sensing and analyzing hand gestures of the lecturer. Read More

Because of the spread of the Internet, social platforms become big data pools. From there we can learn about the trends, culture and hot topics. This project focuses on analyzing the data from Instagram. Read More

A novel scheme for non-volatile digital computation is proposed using spin-transfer torque (STT) and automotion of magnetic domain walls (DWs). The basic computing element is composed of a lateral spin valve (SV) with two ferromagnetic (FM) wires served as interconnects, where DW automotion is used to propagate the information from one device to another. The non-reciprocity of both device and interconnect is realized by sizing different contact areas at the input and the output as well as enhancing the local damping mechanism. Read More

In this paper, a theoretical approach, comprising the non-equilibrium Green's function method for electronic transport and Landau-Khalatnikov equation for electric polarization dynamics, is presented to describe polarization-dependent tunneling electroresistance (TER) in ferroelectric tunnel junctions. Using appropriate contact, interface, and ferroelectric parameters, measured current-voltage characteristic curves in both inorganic (Co/BaTiO$_{3}$/La$_{0.67}$Sr$_{0. Read More

With the agreement of my coauthors, I Zhangyang Wang would like to withdraw the manuscript "Stacked Approximated Regression Machine: A Simple Deep Learning Approach". Some experimental procedures were not included in the manuscript, which makes a part of important claims not meaningful. In the relevant research, I was solely responsible for carrying out the experiments; the other coauthors joined in the discussions leading to the main algorithm. Read More

The increasing popularity of real-world recommender systems produces data continuously and rapidly, and it becomes more realistic to study recommender systems under streaming scenarios. Data streams present distinct properties such as temporally ordered, continuous and high-velocity, which poses tremendous challenges to traditional recommender systems. In this paper, we investigate the problem of recommendation with stream inputs. Read More

Robotic manipulation of deformable objects is a difficult problem especially because of the complexity of the many different ways an object can deform. Searching such a high dimensional state space makes it difficult to recognize, track, and manipulate deformable objects. In this paper, we introduce a predictive, model-driven approach to address this challenge, using a pre-computed, simulated database of deformable object models. Read More

In this work, we consider a manufactory process which can be described by a multiple-instance logistic regression model. In order to compute the maximum likelihood estimation of the unknown coefficient, an expectation-maximization algorithm is proposed, and the proposed modeling approach can be extended to identify the important covariates by adding the coefficient penalty term into the likelihood function. In addition to essential technical details, we demonstrate the usefulness of the proposed method by simulations and real examples. Read More

The physical properties of carbon nanoscoll (CNS) were studied by using the first principles methods within the generalized gradient approximation. Two different kinds of chiral (armchair and zigzag) CNS s are considered and their properties were compared. Bond lengths, ground state energies, band structures, and band gaps are discussed. Read More

In applications involving matching of image sets, the information from multiple images must be effectively exploited to represent each set. State-of-the-art methods use probabilistic distribution or subspace to model a set and use specific distance measure to compare two sets. These methods are slow to compute and not compact to use in a large scale scenario. Read More

This technical report details several improvements to the visual concept detector banks built on images from the Multilingual Visual Sentiment Ontology (MVSO). The detector banks are trained to detect a total of 9,918 sentiment-biased visual concepts from six major languages: English, Spanish, Italian, French, German and Chinese. In the original MVSO release, adjective-noun pair (ANP) detectors were trained for the six languages using an AlexNet-styled architecture by fine-tuning from DeepSentiBank. Read More

The Yuan-Tseh Lee Array for Microwave Background Anisotropy (AMiBA) is a co-planar interferometer array operating at a wavelength of 3mm to measure the Sunyaev-Zeldovich effect (SZE) of galaxy clusters. In the first phase of operation -- with a compact 7-element array with 0.6m antennas (AMiBA-7) -- we observed six clusters at angular scales from 5\arcmin to 23\arcmin. Read More

Considerable research effort has been devoted to the study of Policy in the domain of Information Security Management (ISM). However, our review of ISM literature identified four key deficiencies that reduce the utility of the guidance to organisations implementing policy management practices. This paper provides a comprehensive overview of the management practices of information security policy and develops a practice-based model that addresses the four aforementioned deficiencies.

EventNet is a large-scale video corpus and event ontology consisting of 500 events associated with event-specific concepts. In order to improve the quality of the current EventNet, we conduct the following steps and introduce EventNet version 1.1: (1) manually verify the correctness of event labels for all videos; (2) remove the YouTube user bias by limiting the maximum number of videos in each event from the same YouTube user as 3; (3) remove the videos which are currently not accessible online; (4) remove the video belonging to multiple event categories.

This paper aims for generic instance search from one example where the instance can be an arbitrary object like shoes, not just near-planar and one-sided instances like buildings and logos. First, we evaluate state-of-the-art instance search methods on this problem. We observe that what works for buildings loses its generality on shoes. 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

Residual learning has recently surfaced as an effective means of constructing very deep neural networks for object recognition. However, current incarnations of residual networks do not allow for the modeling and integration of complex relations between closely coupled recognition tasks or across domains. Such problems are often encountered in multimedia applications involving large-scale content recognition. Read More

We investigate the $\ell_\infty$-constrained representation which demonstrates robustness to quantization errors, utilizing the tool of deep learning. Based on the Alternating Direction Method of Multipliers (ADMM), we formulate the original convex minimization problem as a feed-forward neural network, named \textit{Deep $\ell_\infty$ Encoder}, by introducing the novel Bounded Linear Unit (BLU) neuron and modeling the Lagrange multipliers as network biases. Such a structural prior acts as an effective network regularization, and facilitates the model initialization. Read More

In this paper, we propose a novelmethod to search for precise locations of paired note onset and offset in a singing voice signal. In comparison with the existing onset detection algorithms,our approach differs in two key respects. First, we employ Correntropy, a generalized correlation function inspired from Reyni's entropy, as a detection function to capture the instantaneous flux while preserving insensitiveness to outliers. Read More

In this paper, we generalize the Cao-Yau's gradient estimate for the sum of squares of vector fields up to higher step under assumption of the generalized curvature-dimension inequality. With its applications, by deriving a curvature-dimension inequality, we are able to obtain the Li-Yau gradient estimate for the CR heat equation in a closed pseudohermitian manifold of nonvanishing torsion tensors. As consequences, we obtain the Harnack inequality and upper bound estimate for the CR heat kernel. Read More

In this paper, we consider the heat flow for p-pseudoharmonic maps from a closed Sasakian manifold M into a compact Riemannian manifold N. We prove global existence and asymptotic convergence of the solution for the p-pseudoharmonic map heat flow, provided that the sectional curvature of the target manifold N is nonpositive. Moreover, without the curvature assumption on the target manifold, we obtain global existence and asymptotic convergence of the p-pseudoharmonic map heat flow as well when its initial p-energy is sufficiently small.

Visual recognition research often assumes a sufficient resolution of the region of interest (ROI). That is usually violated in practice, inspiring us to explore the Very Low Resolution Recognition (VLRR) problem. Typically, the ROI in a VLRR problem can be smaller than $16 \times 16$ pixels, and is challenging to be recognized even by human experts. Read More

Image aesthetics assessment has been challenging due to its subjective nature. Inspired by the scientific advances in the human visual perception and neuroaesthetics, we design Brain-Inspired Deep Networks (BDN) for this task. BDN first learns attributes through the parallel supervised pathways, on a variety of selected feature dimensions. Read More
