Understanding what visual features and representations contribute to human object recognition may provide scaffolding for more effective artificial vision systems. While recent advances in Deep Convolutional Networks (DCNs) have led to systems approaching human accuracy, it is unclear if they leverage the same visual features as humans for object recognition. We introduce Clicktionary, a competitive web-based game for discovering features that humans use for object recognition: One participant from a pair sequentially reveals parts of an object in an image until the other correctly identifies its category.

Clustering of image is one of the important steps of mining satellite images. In our experiment we have simultaneously run multiple K-means algorithms with different initial centroids and values of k in the same iteration of MapReduce jobs. For initialization of initial centroids we have implemented Scalable K-Means++ MapReduce (MR) job [1]. Read More

In the private values single object auction model, we construct a satisfactory mechanism - a symmetric, dominant strategy incentive compatible, and budget-balanced mechanism. Our mechanism allocates the object to the highest valued agent with more than 99% probability provided there are at least 14 agents. It is also ex-post individually rational. Read More

Among the various explanations of the possible 750 GeV diphoton resonance, the possibility of it being an sgoldstino is an attractive one, as it is related to the spontaneous breaking of global supersymmetry. We discuss this possibility in this paper and point out the various theoretical issues associated with it. In particular, we indicate the difficulties of this explanation in realistic models of gauge mediated supersymmetry breaking. Read More

We study the following private data transfer problem: Alice has a database of files. Bob and Cathy want to access a file each from this database (which may or may not be the same file), but each of them wants to ensure that their choices of file do not get revealed even if Alice colludes with the other user. Alice, on the other hand, wants to make sure that each of Bob and Cathy does not learn any more information from the database than the files they demand (the identities of which will be unknown to her).

We discuss monopole operators in $U(N_c)$ Chern-Simons-matter theories in three space-time dimensions. We mention an apparent problem in the matching of such operators in dualities between non-supersymmetric theories, and suggest a possible resolution. A similar apparent problem exists in the mapping of chiral monopole operators in theories with ${\cal N}=2$ supersymmetry. Read More

We at RRCAT have recently developed high power laser diodes in the wavelength range of 740 to 1000 nm. A typical semiconductor laser structure is consisted of about 10 epilayers with different composition, thickness and doping values. For example, a laser diode operating at 0. Read More

Data mining is also being useful to give solutions for invasion finding and auditing. While data mining has several applications in protection, there are also serious privacy fears. Because of email mining, even inexperienced users can connect data and make responsive associations. Read More

Present study reveals that the free energy landscape of the La5/8-yPryCa3/8MnO3 (LPCMO) system could be modified by elastic strain interaction in the epitaxial thin films. Epitaxial LPCMO thin films of various thicknesses are grown on LaAlO3 substrate by pulsed laser deposition. With increasing thickness, by virtue of island growth morphology, strain disorder is invoked in thin films during strain relaxation process. Read More

We study $3d$ SCFTs in the superspace formalism and discuss superfields and on-shell higher spin current multiplets in free $3d$ SCFTs with $\mathcal{N}= 1,2,3,4$ and $6$ superconformal symmetry. For $\mathcal{N}=1$ 3d SCFTs we determine the superconformal invariants in superspace needed for constructing 3-point functions of higher spin operators, find the non-linear relations between the invariants and consequently write down all the independent invariant structures, both parity even and odd, for various 3-point functions of higher spin operators.

The influence of La and Nd co-substitution on the structural and magnetic properties of BiFeO3 (BFO) thin films was examined. Epitaxial thin films of pure and, La and Nd co-doped BFO on the SrRuO3 buffered single crystal SrTiO3 (001) substrate were deposited using pulsed laser deposition. The structural change in co doped La and Nd BFO thin films which was caused by the changes of force constant in the crystal lattice induced by ionic radii mismatch was investigated. Read More

To meet the demands of wireless sensor networks (WSNs) where data are usually aggregated at a single source prior to transmitting to any distant user, there is a need to establish a tree structure inside to aggregate data. In this paper, an adaptive energy aware data aggregation tree (AEDT) is proposed. The proposed tree uses the maximum energy available node as the data aggregator node. Read More

We study the thermal partition function of level $k$ U(N) Chern-Simons theories on $S^2$ interacting with matter in the fundamental representation. We work in the 't Hooft limit, $N,k\to\infty$, with $\lambda = N/k$ and $\frac{T^2 V_{2}}{N}$ held fixed where $T$ is the temperature and $V_{2}$ the volume of the sphere. An effective action proposed in arXiv:1211. Read More

Artificial bee colony (ABC), an optimization algorithm is a recent addition to the family of population based search algorithm. ABC has taken its inspiration from the collective intelligent foraging behavior of honey bees. In this study we have incorporated golden section search mechanism in the structure of basic ABC to improve the global convergence and prevent to stick on a local solution. Read More

A wide range of engineering design problems have been solved by the algorithms that simulates collective intelligence in swarms of birds or insects. The Artificial Bee Colony or ABC is one of the recent additions to the class of swarm intelligence based algorithms that mimics the foraging behavior of honey bees. ABC consists of three groups of bees namely employed, onlooker and scout bees. Read More

Periodic modulations that appear in the low-temperature transient reflectivity signal of a GaAsP/AlGaAs single quantum well is studied. Similar anomalous oscillations are also observed in layered manganite [K. Kouyama et. Read More

We demonstrate that a supersymmetric and parity violating version of Vasiliev's higher spin gauge theory in AdS$_4$ admits boundary conditions that preserve ${\cal N}=0,1,2,3,4$ or 6 supersymmetries. In particular, we argue that the Vasiliev theory with U(M) Chan-Paton and ${\cal N}=6$ boundary condition is holographically dual to the 2+1 dimensional $U(N)_k\times U(M)_{-k}$ ABJ theory in the limit of large $N,k$ and finite $M$. In this system all bulk higher spin fields transform in the adjoint of the U(M) gauge group, whose bulk t'Hooft coupling is $\frac{M}{N}$. Read More

Using the techniques developed in arxiv: 1203.3544 we compute the universal part of the equilibrium partition function characteristic of a theory with multiple abelian U(1) anomalies in arbitrary even spacetime dimensions. This contribution is closely linked to the universal anomaly induced transport coefficients in hydrodynamics which have been studied before using entropy techniques. Read More

Following up on recent work in the context of ordinary fluids, we study the equilibrium partition function of a 3+1 dimensional superfluid on an arbitrary stationary background spacetime, and with arbitrary stationary background gauge fields, in the long wavelength expansion. We argue that this partition function is generated by a 3 dimensional Euclidean effective action for the massless Goldstone field. We parameterize the general form of this action at first order in the derivative expansion. Read More

In this note we explore the constraints imposed by the existence of equilibrium partition on parity violating charged fluids in 1+1 dimensions at zero derivative order. We write the equilibrium partition function consistent with 1+1 dimensional CPT invariance and which reproduces the correct anomaly in the charge current. The constraints on constitutive relations obtained in this way matches precisely with those obtained using the second law of thermodynamics. Read More

We study the thermal partition function of quantum field theories on arbitrary stationary background spacetime, and with arbitrary stationary background gauge fields, in the long wavelength expansion. We demonstrate that the equations of relativistic hydrodynamics are significantly constrained by the requirement of consistency with any partition function. In examples at low orders in the derivative expansion we demonstrate that these constraints coincide precisely with the equalities between hydrodynamical transport coefficients that follow from the local form of the second law of thermodynamics.

In this paper we study the spectrum of BPS operators/states in N=2 superconformal U(N) Chern-Simons-matter theories with adjoint chiral matter fields, with and without superpotential. The superconformal indices and conjectures on the full supersymmetric spectrum of the theories in the large N limit with up to two adjoint matter fields are presented. Our results suggest that some of these theories may have supergravity duals at strong coupling, while some others may be dual to higher spin theories of gravity at strong coupling. Read More

Residual strain plays a critical role in determining the crystalline quality of nitride epitaxial layers and in modifying their band structure; this often leads to several interesting physical phenomena. It is found, for example, that compressive strain in AlxGa1-xN layers grown on AlyGa1-yN (xRead More

It is known in the literature that InGaP alloy synthesized within a certain range of growth temperature (520 - 720 degree Centrigrade) shows Cu-Pt crystal ordering. This ordering reduces the band gap energy . It was predicted that the ordering induced modification of energy levels of InGaP lowers its conduction band edge, which could change a type I band alignment at a GaAs/InGaP heterojunction to type II .
