When a two-dimensional electron gas is exposed to a perpendicular magnetic field and an in-plane electric field, its conductance becomes quantized in the transverse in-plane direction: this is known as the quantum Hall (QH) effect. This effect is a result of the nontrivial topology of the system's electronic band structure, where an integer topological invariant known as the first Chern number leads to the quantization of the Hall conductance. Interestingly, it was shown that the QH effect can be generalized mathematically to four spatial dimensions (4D), but this effect has never been realized for the obvious reason that experimental systems are bound to three spatial dimensions.

An adaptive time-frequency representation (TFR) with higher energy concentration usually requires higher complexity. Recently, a low-complexity adaptive short-time Fourier transform (ASTFT) based on the chirp rate has been proposed. To enhance the performance, this method is substantially modified in this paper: i) because the wavelet transform used for instantaneous frequency (IF) estimation is not signal-dependent, a low-complexity ASTFT based on a novel concentration measure is addressed; ii) in order to increase robustness to IF estimation error, the principal component analysis (PCA) replaces the difference operator for calculating the chirp rate; and iii) a more robust Gaussian kernel with time-frequency-varying window width is proposed.

A closed four dimensional manifold cannot possess a non-flat Ricci soliton metric with arbitrarily small $L^2$-norm of the curvature. In this paper, we localize this fact in the case of shrinking Ricci solitons by proving an $\varepsilon$-regularity theorem, thus confirming a conjecture of Cheeger-Tian. As applications, we will also derive structural results concerning the degeneration of the metrics on a family of complete non-compact four dimensional shrinking Ricci solitons \emph{without} a uniform entropy lower bound.

It is oftentimes impossible to understand how machine learning models reach a decision. While recent research has proposed various technical approaches to provide some clues as to how a learning model makes individual decisions, they cannot provide users with ability to inspect a learning model as a complete entity. In this work, we propose a new technical approach that augments a Bayesian regression mixture model with multiple elastic nets. Read More

High-entropy alloy (HEA) is a family of metallic materials with nearly equal partitions of five or more metals, which might possess mechanical and transport properties that are different from conventional binary or tertiary alloys. In this work, we demonstrate current-induced spin-orbit torque (SOT) magnetization switching in a Ta-Nb-Hf-Zr-Ti HEA-based magnetic heterostructure with perpendicular magnetic anisotropy (PMA). The maximum damping-like SOT efficiency from this particular HEA-based magnetic heterostructure is further determined to be $|\zeta^{\operatorname{HEA}}_{DL}|\approx0. Read More

In this paper, we describe the optical imaging data processing pipeline developed for the Subaru Telescope's Hyper Suprime-Cam (HSC) instrument. The HSC Pipeline builds on the prototype pipeline being developed by the Large Synoptic Survey Telescope's Data Management system, adding customizations for HSC, large-scale processing capabilities, and novel algorithms that have since been reincorporated into the LSST codebase. While designed primarily to reduce HSC Subaru Strategic Program (SSP) data, it is also the recommended pipeline for reducing general-observer HSC data. Read More

We report on the observation of magnon thermal conductivity $\kappa_m\sim$ 70
W/mK near 5 K in the helimagnetic insulator Cu$_2$OSeO$_3$, exceeding that
measured in any other ferromagnet by almost two orders of magnitude. Ballistic,
boundary-limited transport for both magnons and phonons is established below 1
K, and Poiseuille flow of magnons is proposed to explain a magnon mean-free
path substantially exceeding the specimen width for the least defective
specimens in the range 2 K $

Distant supervision significantly reduces human efforts in building training data for many classification tasks. While promising, this technique often introduces noise to the generated training data, which can severely affect the model performance. In this paper, we take a deep look at the application of distant supervision in relation extraction. Read More

In typical neural machine translation~(NMT), the decoder generates a sentence word by word, packing all linguistic granularities in the same time-scale of RNN. In this paper, we propose a new type of decoder for NMT, which splits the decode state into two parts and updates them in two different time-scales. Specifically, we first predict a chunk time-scale state for phrasal modeling, on top of which multiple word time-scale states are generated. Read More

The problem of determining whether a given quantum state is entangled lies at the heart in quantum information processing. Despite the many methods -- such as the positive partial transpose (PPT) criterion and the $k$-symmetric extendibility criterion -- to tackle this problem, none of them enables a general, practical solution due to the problem's NP-hard complexity. Explicitly, states that are separable form a high-dimensional convex set of vastly complicated structure. Read More

Quantum state tomography is an indispensable but costly part of many quantum experiments. Typically, it requires measurements to be carried in a number of different settings on a fixed experimental setup. The collected data is often informationally overcomplete, with the amount of information redundancy depending on the particular set of measurement settings chosen. Read More

In this paper we apply the discrete gravity and Regge calculus to tensor networks and Anti-de Sitter/conformal field theory (AdS/CFT) correspondence. We construct the boundary many-body quantum state $|\Psi\rangle$ using random tensor networks as the holographic mapping, applied to the Wheeler-deWitt wave function of bulk Euclidean discrete gravity in 3 dimensions. The entanglement R\'enyi entropy of $|\Psi\rangle$ is shown to holographically relate to the on-shell action of Einstein gravity on a branch cover bulk manifold. Read More

The Subaru Strategic Program (SSP) is an ambitious multi-band survey using the Hyper Suprime-Cam (HSC) on the Subaru telescope. The Wide layer of the SSP is both wide and deep, reaching a detection limit of i~26.0 mag. Read More

A $(\beta,\epsilon)$-$\textit{hopset}$ is, informally, a weighted edge set that, when added to a graph, allows one to get from point $a$ to point $b$ using a path with at most $\beta$ edges ("hops") and length $(1+\epsilon)\mathrm{dist}(a,b)$. In this paper we observe that Thorup and Zwick's $\textit{sublinear additive}$ emulators are also actually $(O(k/\epsilon)^k,\epsilon)$-hopsets for every $\epsilon>0$, and that with a small change to the Thorup-Zwick construction, the size of the hopset can be made $O(n^{1+\frac{1}{2^{k+1}-1}})$. As corollaries, we also shave "$k$" factors off the size of Thorup and Zwick's sublinear additive emulators and the sparsest known $(1+\epsilon,O(k/\epsilon)^{k-1})$-spanners, due to Abboud, Bodwin, and Pettie.

Millimeter wave (mmWave) communication technologies have recently emerged as an attractive solution to meet the exponentially increasing demand on mobile data traffic. Moreover, ultra dense networks (UDNs) combined with mmWave technology are expected to increase both energy efficiency and spectral efficiency. In this paper, user association and power allocation in mmWave based UDNs is considered with attention to load balance constraints, energy harvesting by base stations, user quality of service requirements, energy efficiency, and cross-tier interference limits.

Let $K$ be a field, $G$ a finite group. Let $G$ act on the function field $L = K(x_{\sigma} : \sigma \in G)$ by $\tau \cdot x_{\sigma} = x_{\tau\sigma}$ for any $\sigma, \tau \in G$. Denote the fixed field of the action by $K(G) = L^{G} = \left\{ \frac{f}{g} \in L : \sigma(\frac{f}{g}) = \frac{f}{g}, \forall \sigma \in G \right\}$. Read More

We report the discovery of a diffuse stellar cloud with an angular extent $\gtrsim30^{\prime\prime}$, which we term "Sumo Puff", in data from the Hyper Suprime-Cam Subaru Strategic Program (HSC-SSP). While we do not have a redshift for this object, it is in close angular proximity to a post-merger galaxy at redshift $z=0.0431$ and is projected within a few virial radii (assuming similar redshifts) of two other ${\sim}L_\star$ galaxies, which we use to bracket a potential redshift range of $0.

Hyper Suprime-Cam (HSC) is a wide-field imaging camera on the prime focus of the 8.2m Subaru telescope on the summit of Maunakea. A team of scientists from Japan, Taiwan and Princeton University is using HSC to carry out a 300-night multi-band imaging survey of the high-latitude sky. Read More

We consider a committee voting setting in which each voter approves of a subset of candidates and based on the approvals, a target number of candidates are to be selected. In particular we focus on the axiomatic property called extended justified representation (EJR). Although a committee satisfying EJR is guaranteed to exist, the computational complexity of finding such a committee has been an open problem and explicitly mentioned in multiple recent papers.

During 2015 the Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider (RHIC) provided collisions of transversely polarized protons with Au and Al nuclei for the first time, enabling the exploration of transverse-single-spin asymmetries with heavy nuclei. Large single-spin asymmetries in very forward neutron production have been previously observed in transversely polarized $p$$+$$p$ collisions at RHIC, and the existing theoretical framework that was successful in describing the single-spin asymmetry in $p$$+$$p$ collisions predicts only a moderate atomic-mass-number ($A$) dependence. In contrast, the asymmetries observed at RHIC in $p$$+$$A$ collisions showed a surprisingly strong $A$ dependence in inclusive forward neutron production. Read More

We propose the configurable rendering of massive quantities of photorealistic images with ground truth for the purposes of training, benchmarking, and diagnosing computer vision models. In contrast to the conventional (crowd-sourced) manual labeling of ground truth for a relatively modest number of RGB-D images captured by Kinect-like sensors, we devise a non-trivial configurable pipeline of algorithms capable of generating a potentially infinite variety of indoor scenes using a stochastic grammar, specifically, one represented by an attributed spatial And-Or graph. We employ physics-based rendering to synthesize photorealistic RGB images while automatically synthesizing detailed, per-pixel ground truth data, including visible surface depth and normal, object identity and material information, as well as illumination.

Compressive sensing relies on the sparse prior imposed on the signal to solve the ill-posed recovery problem in an under-determined linear system. The objective function that enforces the sparse prior information should be both effective and easily optimizable. Motivated by the entropy concept from information theory, in this paper we propose the generalized Shannon entropy function and R\'{e}nyi entropy function of the signal as the sparsity promoting objectives.

The cross section and transverse single-spin asymmetries of $\mu^{-}$ and $\mu^{+}$ from open heavy-flavor decays in polarized $p$+$p$ collisions at $\sqrt{s}=200$ GeV were measured by the PHENIX experiment during 2012 at the Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider. Because heavy-flavor production is dominated by gluon-gluon interactions at $\sqrt{s}=200$ GeV, these measurements offer a unique opportunity to obtain information on the trigluon correlation functions. The measurements are performed at forward and backward rapidity ($1. Read More

Sufficient dimension reduction (SDR) is continuing an active research field nowadays for high dimensional data. It aims to estimate the central subspace (CS) without making distributional assumption. To overcome the large-$p$-small-$n$ problem we propose a new approach for SDR. Read More

As autonomous vehicles become an every-day reality, high-accuracy pedestrian detection is of paramount practical importance. Pedestrian detection is a highly researched topic with mature methods, but most datasets focus on common scenes of people engaged in typical walking poses on sidewalks. But performance is most crucial for dangerous scenarios, such as children playing in the street or people using bicycles/skateboards in unexpected ways. Read More

In this paper, an energy harvesting scheme for a multi-user multiple-input-multiple-output (MIMO) secrecy channel with artificial noise (AN) transmission is investigated. Joint optimization of the transmit beamforming matrix, the AN covariance matrix, and the power splitting ratio is conducted to minimize the transmit power under the target secrecy rate, the total transmit power, and the harvested energy constraints. The original problem is shown to be non-convex, which is tackled by a two-layer decomposition approach. Read More

Data science teams often collaboratively analyze datasets, generating dataset versions at each stage of iterative exploration and analysis. There is a pressing need for a system that can support dataset versioning, enabling such teams to efficiently store, track, and query across dataset versions. We introduce OrpheusDB, a dataset version control system that "bolts on" versioning capabilities to a traditional relational database system, thereby gaining the analytics capabilities of the database "for free".

The molecular dynamics of solid benzene are extremely complex; especially below 77 K, its inner mechanics remain mostly unexplored. Benzene is also a prototypical molecular crystal that becomes energetically frustrated at low temperatures and usually unusual phenomena accompanies such scenarios. We performed dielectric constant measurements on solid benzene down to 5 K and observed a previously unidentified minimum in the imaginary part of the dielectric constant at Tm=17. Read More

We demonstrate a simple, compact, and cost-effective laser noise reduction method for stabilizing an extended cavity diode laser to a 3x105 finesse mirror Fabry-P\'erot (F-P) cavity corresponding to resonance linewidth of 10 kHz using a crystalline MgF2 whispering gallery mode microresonator (WGMR). The laser linewidth is reduced to sub-kHz such that a stable Pound-Drever-Hall (PDH) error signal is built up. The wavelength of the pre-stabilized laser is tunable within a large bandwidth covering the high reflection mirror coating of a F-P supercavity. Read More

According to electronic structure theory, bilayer graphene is expected to have anomalous electronic properties when it has long-period moir\'e patterns produced by small misalignments between its individual layer honeycomb lattices. We have realized bilayer graphene moir\'e crystals with accurately controlled twist angles smaller than 1 degree and studied their properties using scanning probe microscopy and electron transport. We observe conductivity minima at charge neutrality, satellite gaps that appear at anomalous carrier densities for twist angles smaller than 1 degree, and tunneling densities-of-states that are strongly dependent on carrier density.

The Hyper Suprime-Cam Subaru Strategic Program (HSC-SSP) is a three-layered imaging survey aimed at addressing some of the most outstanding questions in astronomy today, including the nature of dark matter and dark energy. The survey has been awarded 300 nights of observing time at the Subaru Telescope. The survey started in March 2014. Read More

The main contribution of this paper is an invariant extended Kalman filter (EKF) for visual inertial navigation systems (VINS). It is demonstrated that the conventional EKF based VINS is not invariant under the stochastic unobservable transformation, associated with translations and a rotation about the gravitational direction. This can lead to inconsistent state estimates as the estimator does not obey a fundamental property of the physical system. Read More

Weyl semimetals are conductors whose low-energy bulk excitations are Weyl fermions, whereas their surfaces possess metallic Fermi arc surface states. These Fermi arc surface states are protected by a topological invariant associated with the bulk electronic wavefunctions of the material. Recently, it has been shown that the TaAs and NbAs classes of materials harbor such a state of topological matter. Read More

In this paper, we investigate the convergence and consistency properties of an Invariant-Extended Kalman Filter (RI-EKF) based Simultaneous Localization and Mapping (SLAM) algorithm. Basic convergence properties of this algorithm are proven. These proofs do not require the restrictive assumption that the Jacobians of the motion and observation models need to be evaluated at the ground truth. Read More

Children can use the statistical regularities of their environment to learn word meanings, a mechanism known as cross-situational learning. We take a computational approach to investigate how the information present during each observation in a cross-situational framework can affect the overall acquisition of word meanings. We do so by formulating various in-the-moment learning mechanisms that are sensitive to different statistics of the environment, such as counts and conditional probabilities. Read More

Hyperbolic (or indefinite) materials have attracted significant attention due to their unique capabilities for engineering electromagnetic space and controlling light propagation. A current challenge is to find a hyperbolic material with wide working frequency window, low energy loss, and easy controllability. Here, we propose that naturally existing electride materials could serve as high-performance hyperbolic medium. Read More

Recently there has been interest in studying a new class of elastic materials, which is described by implicit constitutive relations. Under some basic assumption for elasticity constants, the system of governing equations of motion for this elastic material is strictly hyperbolic but without the convexity property. In this paper, all wave patterns for the nonclassic nonlinearly elastic materials under Riemann data are established completely by separating the phase plane into twelve disjoint regions and by using a nonnegative dissipation rate assumption and the maximally dissipative kinetics at any stress discontinuity.

Many natural and engineering systems are simultaneously subjected to a driving force and a stabilizing force. The interplay between the two forces, especially for highly nonlinear systems such as fluid flow, often results in surprising features. Here we reveal such features in three different types of Rayleigh-B\'enard (RB) convection, i. Read More

Our ultimate goal is to efficiently enable end-users to correctly anticipate a robot's behavior in novel situations. This behavior is often a direct result of the robot's underlying objective function. Our insight is that end-users need to have an accurate mental model of this objective function in order to understand and predict what the robot will do. Read More

We report the discovery of a mysterious giant $H_{\alpha}$ blob that is $\sim 8$ kpc away from the main MaNGA target 1-24145, one component of a dry galaxy merger, identified in the first-year SDSS-IV MaNGA data. The size of the $H_{\alpha}$ blob is $\sim$ 3-4 kpc in radius, and the $H_{\alpha}$ distribution is centrally concentrated. However, there is no optical continuum counterpart in deep broadband images reaching $\sim$26. Read More

Machine learning classifiers are known to be vulnerable to inputs maliciously constructed by adversaries to force misclassification. Such adversarial examples have been extensively studied in the context of computer vision applications. In this work, we show adversarial attacks are also effective when targeting neural network policies in reinforcement learning. Read More

To describe many-particle systems suspended in incompressible low-Reynolds-number fluids, effective hydrodynamic interactions can be introduced. Here, we consider particles embedded in elastic media. The effective elastic interactions between spherical particles are calculated analytically, inspired by the approach in the fluid case. Read More

We report a measurement of $e^+e^-$ pairs from semileptonic heavy-flavor decays in $p$+$p$ collisions at $\sqrt{s_{NN}}=200$~GeV. The $e^+e^-$ pair yield from $b\bar{b}$ and $c\bar{c}$ is separated by exploiting a double differential fit done simultaneously in dielectron invariant mass and $p_T$. We used three different event generators, {\sc pythia}, {\sc mc@nlo}, and {\sc powheg}, to simulate the $e^+e^-$ spectra from $c\bar{c}$ and $b\bar{b}$ production. Read More

The fraction of $J/\psi$ mesons which come from B-meson decay, $\textrm{F}_{B{\rightarrow}J/\psi}$, is measured for J/$\psi$ rapidity \mbox{$1.2<|y|<2.2$} and $p_T>0$ in $p$+$p$ and Cu+Au collisions at $\sqrt{s_{_{NN}}}$=200 GeV with the PHENIX detector. Read More

Optical solitons-stable waves balancing delicately between nonlinearities and dispersive effects-have advanced the field of ultrafast optics and dynamics, with contributions spanning supercontinuum generation and soliton fission, to optical event horizon, Hawking radiation, and optical rogue waves, amongst others. Here we investigate picojoule soliton dynamics in silicon slow-light photonic-bandgap waveguides under the influence of Drude-modeled free-carrier induced nonlinear effects. Using real-time and single shot amplified dispersive Fourier transform spectroscopy simultaneously with high-fidelity cross-correlation frequency-resolved optical gating at femtojoule sensitivity and femtosecond resolution, we examine the soliton stability limits, the soliton dynamics including free-carrier quartic slow-light scaling and acceleration, and the Drude electron-hole-plasma induced perturbations on Cherenkov radiation and modulation instability.

Magnetic holes (MHs), with a scale much greater than \r{ho}i (proton gyroradius), have been widely reported in various regions of space plasmas. On the other hand, kinetic-size magnetic holes (KSMHs), previously called small size magnetic holes (SSMHs), with a scale of the order of magnitude of or less than \r{ho}i have only been reported in the Earth's magnetospheric plasma sheet. In this study, we report such KSMHs in the magnetosheath whereby we use measurements from the Magnetospheric Multiscale (MMS) mission, which provides three-dimensional (3D) particle distribution measurements with a resolution much higher than previous missions.
