Given large amount of real photos for training, Convolutional neural network shows excellent performance on object recognition tasks. However, the process of collecting data is so tedious and the background are also limited which makes it hard to establish a perfect database. In this paper, our generative model trained with synthetic images rendered from 3D models reduces the workload of data collection and limitation of conditions. Read More

We employ a 3+1D anomalous hydrodynamics with initial condition generated by HIJING to simulate the chiral vortical effect and the chiral magnetic effect in heavy-ion collisions. This allows us to calculate the charge-dependent two-particle correlations with respect to the reaction plane at different collision energies and centralities. We then compare the computed results with the experimental data and give discussions on the possible background effects. Read More

We give a numerical simulation of the generation of the magnetic field and the charge-separation signal due to the chiral magnetic effect (CME) --- the induction of an electric current by the magnetic field in a parity-odd matter --- in the collisions of isobaric nuclei, $^{96}_{44}$Ru + $^{96}_{44}$Ru and $^{96}_{40}$Zr + $^{96}_{40}$Zr, at $\sqrt{s_{\rm NN}}=200$ GeV. We show that such collisions provide an ideal tool to disentangle the CME signal from the possible elliptic-flow driven background effects. We also discuss some other effects that can be tested by using the isobaric collisions. Read More

The early optical afterglow emission of several gamma-ray bursts (GRBs) shows a high linear polarization degree (PD) of tens of percent, suggesting an ordered magnetic field in the emission region. The lightcurves are consistent with being of a reverse shock (RS) origin. However, the magnetization parameter, $\sigma$, of the outflow is unknown. Read More

This paper further discusses the tempered fractional Brownian motion, its ergodicity, and the derivation of the corresponding Fokker-Planck equation. Then we introduce the generalized Langevin equation with the tempered fractional Gaussian noise for a free particle, called tempered fractional Langevin equation (tfLe). While the tempered fractional Brownian motion displays localization diffusion for the long time limit and for the short time its mean squared displacement has the asymptotic form $t^{2H}$, we show that the asymptotic form of the mean squared displacement of the tfLe transits from $t^2$ (ballistic diffusion for short time) to $t^{2-2H}$, and then to $t^2$ (again ballistic diffusion for long time).

Hybrid organic-inorganic perovskites have been established as good candidate materials for emerging photovoltaics, with device efficiencies of over 22 % being reported. There are currently only two organic cations, methylammonium and formamidinium, which produce 3D perovskites with band gaps suitable for photovoltaic devices. Numerous computational studies have identified azetidinium as a potential third cation for synthesizing organic-inorganic perovskites, but to date no experimental reports of azetidinium containing perovskites have been published.

This paper proposes the SVDNet for retrieval problems, with focus on the application of person re-identification (re-ID). We view each weight vector within a fully connected (FC) layer in a convolutional neuron network (CNN) as a projection basis. It is observed that the weight vectors are usually highly correlated.

For the particles undergoing the anomalous diffusion with different waiting time distributions for different internal states, we derive the Fokker-Planck and Feymann-Kac equations, respectively, describing positions of the particles and functional distributions of the trajectories of particles; in particular, the equations governing the functional distribution of internal states are also obtained. The dynamics of the stochastic processes are analyzed and the applications, calculating the distribution of the first passage time and the distribution of the fraction of the occupation time, of the equations are given.

In \cite{ChCa}, Califano and Chiuderi conjectured that the energy of incompressible Magnetic hydrodynamical system is dissipated at a rate that is independent of the ohmic resistivity. The goal of this paper is to mathematically justify this conjecture in three space dimension provided that the initial magnetic field and velocity is a small perturbation of the equilibrium state $(e_3,0).$ In particular, we prove that for such data, 3-D incompressible MHD system without magnetic diffusion has a unique global solution.

For characterizing the Brownian motion in a bounded domain: $\Omega$, it is well-known that the boundary conditions of the classical diffusion equation just rely on the given information of the solution along the boundary of a domain; on the contrary, for the L\'evy flights or tempered L\'evy flights in a bounded domain, it involves the information of a solution in the complementary set of $\Omega$, i.e., $\mathbb{R}^n\backslash \Omega$, with the potential reason that paths of the corresponding stochastic process are discontinuous.

The surface states of three-dimensional topological insulators posses the unique property of spin-momentum interlocking. This property gives rise to the interesting inverse Edelstein effect (IEE), in which an applied spin bias $\mu$ is converted to a measurable charge voltage difference $V$. We develop a semiclassical theory for the IEE of the surface states of $\text{Bi}_2\text{Se}_3$ thin films, which is applicable from the ballistic regime to diffusive regime. Read More

Aiming at improving the efficiency and accuracy of community detection in complex networks, we proposed a new algorithm, which is based on the idea that communities could be detected from subnetworks by comparing the internal and external cohesion of each subnetwork. In our method, similar nodes are firstly gathered into meta-communities, which are then decided to be retained or merged through a multilevel label propagation process, until all of them meet our community criterion. Our algorithm requires neither any priori information of communities nor optimization of any objective function. Read More

We study the entropy of Chinese and English texts, based on characters in case of Chinese texts and based on words for both languages. Significant differences are found between the languages and between different personal styles of debating partners. The entropy analysis points in the direction of lower entropy, that is of higher complexity. Read More

The label propagation algorithm (LPA) has been proved to be a fast and effective method for detecting communities in large complex networks. However, its performance is subject to the non-stable and trivial solutions of the problem. In this paper, we propose a modified label propagation algorithm LPAf to efficiently detect community structures in networks. Read More

We develop an analytical theory of the low-frequency $ac$ quantum spin Hall (QSH) effect based upon the scattering matrix formalism. It is shown that the $ac$ QSH effect can be interpreted as a bulk quantum pumping effect. When the electron spin is conserved, the integer-quantized $ac$ spin Hall conductivity can be linked to the winding numbers of the reflection matrices in the electrodes, which also equal to the bulk spin Chern numbers of the QSH material.

This paper focuses on providing the high order algorithms for the space-time tempered fractional diffusion-wave equation. The designed schemes are unconditionally stable and have the global truncation error $\mathcal{O}(\tau^2+h^2)$, being theoretically proved and numerically verified. Read More

The supervisory control theory of fuzzy discrete event systems (FDESs) for fuzzy language equivalence has been developed. However, in a way, language equivalence has limited expressiveness. So if the given specification can not be expressed by language equivalence, then the control for language equivalence does not work. Read More

It is well known that type-1 fuzzy sets (T1 FSs) have limited capabilities to handle some data uncertainties directly, and type-2 fuzzy sets (T2 FSs) can cover the shortcoming of T1 FSs to a certain extent. Fuzzy discrete event systems (FDESs) were proposed based on T1 FSs theory. Hence, FDES may not be a satisfactory model to characterize some high-uncertainty systems. Read More

The mean first exit (passage) time characterizes the average time of a stochastic process never leaving a fixed region in the state space, while the escape probability describes the likelihood of a transition from one region to another for a stochastic system driven by discontinuous (with jumps) L\'evy motion. This paper discusses the two deterministic quantities, mean first exit time and escape probability, for the anomalous processes having the tempered L\'{e}vy stable waiting times with the tempering index $\lambda>0$ and the stability index $0<\alpha \le 1$; as for the distribution of jump lengths or the type of the noises driving the system, two cases are considered, i.e. Read More

In a noncentral heavy-ion collision, the two colliding nuclei have finite angular momentum in the direction perpendicular to the reaction plane. After the collision, a fraction of the total angular momentum is retained in the produced hot quark-gluon matter and is manifested in the form of fluid shear. Such fluid shear creates finite flow vorticity. Read More

The Nagel-Schreckenberg model with overtaking strategy (NSOS) is proposed, and numerical simulations are performed for both closed and open boundary conditions. The fundamental diagram, space-time diagram, and spatial-temporal distribution of speed are investigated. In order to identify the synchronized flow state, both the correlation functions (autocorrelation and cross-correlation) and the one-minute average flow rate vs. Read More

The asymmetric electron dispersion in type-II Weyl semimetal theoretically hosts anisotropic transport properties. Here we observe the significant anisotropic Adler-Bell-Jackiw (ABJ) anomaly in the Fermi-level delicately adjusted WTe$_{1.98}$ crystals. Read More

We have systematically investigated the magnetic moments and magnetic form factors of the decuplet baryons to the next-to-next-leading order in the framework of the heavy baryon chiral perturbation theory. Our calculation includes the contributions from both the intermediate decuplet and octet baryon states in the loops. We also calculate the charge and magnetic dipole form factors of the decuplet baryons. Read More

The charmonium spectrum is calculated with two nonrelativistic quark models, the linear potential model and the screened potential model. Using the obtained wavefunctions, we evaluate the electromagnetic transitions of charmonium states up to $4S$ multiplet. The higher multipole contributions are included by a multipole expansion of the electromagnetic interactions. Read More

We provide and analyze the high order algorithms for the model describing the functional distributions of particles performing anomalous motion with power-law jump length and tempered power-law waiting time. The model is derived in [Wu, Deng, and Barkai, Phys. Rev. Read More

Stimulated by the exciting progress in the observation of new bottomonium states, we study the bottomonium spectrum. To calculate the mass spectrum, we adopt a nonrelativistic screened potential model. The radial Schr\"{o}dinger equation is solved with the three-point difference central method, where the spin-dependent potentials are dealt with non-perturbatively. Read More

The quark-gluon matter produced in relativistic heavy-ion collisions may contain local domains in which P and CP symmetries are not preserved. When coupled with an external magnetic field, such P- and CP-odd domains will generate electric currents along the magnetic field --- a phenomenon called the chiral magnetic effect (CME). Recently, the STAR Collaboration at RHIC and the ALICE Collaboration at the LHC released data of charge-dependent azimuthal-angle correlators with features consistent with the CME expectation.

Substantial experimental and theoretical efforts worldwide are devoted to explore the phase diagram of strongly interacting matter. At LHC and top RHIC energies, QCD matter is studied at very high temperatures and nearly vanishing net-baryon densities. There is evidence that a Quark-Gluon-Plasma (QGP) was created at experiments at RHIC and LHC. Read More

The quantum spin Hall (QSH) effect in the DC regime, which has been intensively researched, relies on the existence of symmetry-protected edge states. Here, we demonstrate that a QSH system behaves quite differently in response to an applied AC electric field, and put forward the idea of AC QSH effect. The AC QSH effect can occur in the bulk without involving the fragile edge states, hence being robust against time-reversal symmetry breaking and disorder. Read More

The problem of probabilistic forecasting and online simulation of real-time electricity market with stochastic generation and demand is considered. By exploiting the parametric structure of the direct current optimal power flow, a new technique based on online dictionary learning (ODL) is proposed. The ODL approach incorporates real-time measurements and historical traces to produce forecasts of joint and marginal probability distributions of future locational marginal prices, power flows, and dispatch levels, conditional on the system state at the time of forecasting.

We numerically study the effect of the edge states on the conductance and thermopower in zigzag phosphorene nanoribbons (ZPNRs) based on the tight-binding model and the scattering-matrix method. It is interesting to find that the band dispersion, conductance, and thermopower can be modulated by applying a bias voltage and boundary potentials to the two layers of the ZPNRs. Under the certain bias voltage, the two-fold degenerate quasi-flat edge bands split perfectly. Read More

Predictions made in Albacete {\it et al} prior to the LHC $p+$Pb run at $\sqrt{s_{NN}} = 5$ TeV are compared to currently available data. Some predictions shown here have been updated by including the same experimental cuts as the data. Some additional predictions are also presented, especially for quarkonia, that were provided to the experiments before the data were made public but were too late for the original publication are also shown here.

Recently, nonlocal models attract the wide interests of scientist. They mainly come from two applied scientific fields: peridyanmics and anomalous diffusion. Even though the matrices of the algebraic equation corresponding the nonlocal models are usually Toeplitz (denote a0 as the principal diagonal element, a1 as the trailing diagonal element, etc).

This paper focuses on providing the computation methods for the backward time tempered fractional Feynman-Kac equation, being one of the models recently proposed in [Wu, Deng, and Barkai, Phys. Rev. E, 84 (2016) 032151]. Read More

Because of the finiteness of the life span and boundedness of the physical space, the more reasonable or physical choice is the tempered power-law instead of pure power-law for the CTRW model in characterizing the waiting time and jump length of the motion of particles. This paper focuses on providing the variational formulation and efficient implementation for solving the corresponding deterministic/macroscopic models, including the space tempered fractional equation and time tempered fractional equation. The convergence, numerical stability, and a series of variational equalities are theoretically proved. Read More

In this paper, we first introduce fractional integral spaces, which possess some features: (i) when $0<\alpha<1$, functions in these spaces are not required to be zero on the boundary; (ii) the tempered fractional operators are equivalent to the Riemann-Liouville operator in the sense of the norm. Spectral Galerkin and Petrov-Galerkin methods for tempered fractional advection problems and tempered fractional diffusion problems can be developed as the classical spectral Galerkin and Petrov-Galerkin methods. Error analysis is provided and numerically confirmed for the tempered fractional advection and diffusion problems. Read More

We study the event-by-event generation of flow vorticity in RHIC Au + Au collisions and LHC Pb + Pb collisions by using the HIJING model. Different definitions of the vorticity field and velocity field are considered. A variety of properties of the vorticity are explored, including the impact parameter dependence, the collision energy dependence, the spatial distribution, the event-by-event fluctuation of the magnitude and azimuthal direction, and the time evolution.

The traditional wave equation models wave propagation in an ideal conducting medium. For characterizing the wave propagation in inhomogeneous media with frequency dependent power-law attenuation, the space-time fractional wave equation appears; further incorporating the additive white Gaussian noise coming from many natural sources leads to the stochastic space-time fractional wave equation. This paper discusses the Galerkin finite element approximations for the stochastic space-time fractional wave equation forced by an additive space-time white noise. Read More

When solving large linear systems stemming from the approximation of elliptic partial differential equations (PDEs), it is known that the V-cycle multigrid method (MGM) can significantly lower the computational cost. Many uniform convergence estimates already exist for the V-cycle MGM: for example, using the regularity or approximation assumptions of the elliptic PDEs, the results are obtained in [Bank \& Douglas, SIAM J. Numer. Read More

The jet composition and energy dissipation mechanism of Gamma-ray bursts (GRBs) and Blazars are fundamental questions which remain not fully understood. One plausible model is to interpret the $\gamma$-ray emission of GRBs and optical emission of blazars as synchrotron radiation of electrons accelerated from the collision-induced magnetic dissipation regions in Poynting-flux-dominated jets. The polarization observation is an important and independent information to test this model. Read More

Quantum spin Hall insulator is characterized by the helical edge states, with the spin polarization of electron being locked to its direction of motion. Although the edge-state conduction has been observed, unambiguous evidence of the helical spin texture is still lacking. Here, we investigate the coherent edge-state transport in an interference loop pinched by two point contacts. Read More

Functionals of Brownian/non-Brownian motions have diverse applications and attracted a lot of interest of scientists. This paper focuses on deriving the forward and backward fractional Feynman-Kac equations describing the distribution of the functionals of the space and time tempered anomalous diffusion, belonging to the continuous time random walk class. Several examples of the functionals are explicitly treated, including the occupation time in half-space, the first passage time, the maximal displacement, the fluctuations of the occupation fraction, and the fluctuations of the time-averaged position.

Based on the Floquet scattering theory, we analytically investigate the topological spin pumping for an exactly solvable model. Floquet spin Chern numbers are introduced to characterize the periodically time-dependent system. The topological spin pumping remains robust both in the presence and in the absence of the time-reversal symmetry, as long as the pumping frequency is smaller than the band gap, where the electron transport involves only the Floquet evanescent modes in the pump. Read More

We show that by integrating out the electric field and incorporating proper boundary conditions, a semiclassical Boltzmann equation can describe electron transport properties, continuously from the diffusive to ballistic regimes. General analytical formulas of the conductance in $D=1,2,3$ dimensions are obtained, which recover the Boltzmann-Drude formula and Landauer-B\"uttiker formula in the diffusive and ballistic limits, respectively. This intuitive and efficient approach can be applied to investigate the interplay of system size and impurity scattering in various charge and spin transport phenomena. Read More

With the spin rearrangement, we have performed a comprehensive investigation of the decay patterns of the S-wave tetraquarks and P-wave tetraquarks where the P-wave excitation exists either between the diquark and anti-diquark pair or inside the diquark. Especially, we compare the decay patterns of $Y(4260)$ with different inner structures such as the conventional charmonium, the molecule, the P-wave tetraquark and the hybrid charmonium. We notice the $J/\psi \pi\pi$ mode is suppressed in the heavy quark symmetry limit if $Y(4260)$ is a molecular state. Read More

The optical radiation and polarization signatures in blazars are known to be highly variable during flaring activities. It is frequently argued that shocks are the main driver of the flaring events. However, the spectral variability modelings generally lack detailed considerations of the self-consistent magnetic field evolution modeling, thus so far the associated optical polarization signatures are poorly understood.

A hybridized discontinuous Galerkin method is proposed for solving 2D fractional convection-diffusion equations containing derivatives of fractional order in space on a finite domain. The Riemann-Liouville derivative is used for the spatial derivative. Combining the characteristic method and the hybridized discontinuous Galerkin method, the symmetric variational formulation is constructed. Read More

In the renewal processes, if the waiting time probability density function is a tempered power-law distribution, then the process displays a transition dynamics; and the transition time depends on the parameter $\lambda$ of the exponential cutoff. In this paper, we discuss the aging effects of the renewal process with the tempered power-law waiting time distribution. By using the aging renewal theory, the $p$-th moment of the number of renewal events $n_a(t_a, t)$ in the interval $(t_a, t_a+t)$ is obtained for both the weakly and strongly aged systems; and the corresponding surviving probabilities are also investigated.

Power-law probability density function (PDF) plays a key role in both subdiffusion and L\'{e}vy flights. However, sometimes because of the finite of the lifespan of the particles or the boundedness of the physical space, tempered power-law PDF seems to be a more physical choice and then the tempered fractional operators appear; in fact, the tempered fractional operators can also characterize the transitions among subdiffusion, normal diffusion, and L\'{e}vy flights. This paper focuses on the quasi-compact schemes for space tempered fractional diffusion equations, being much different from the ones for pure fractional derivatives. Read More

Magnetic reconnection is a leading mechanism for dissipating magnetic energy and accelerating nonthermal particles in Poynting-flux dominated flows. In this letter, we investigate nonthermal particle acceleration during magnetic reconnection in a magnetically-dominated ion-electron plasma using fully kinetic simulations. For an ion-electron plasma with the total magnetization $\sigma_0=B^2/(4\pi n(m_i+m_e)c^2)$, the magnetization for each species is $\sigma_i \sim \sigma_0$ and $\sigma_e \sim (m_i/m_e) \sigma_0$, respectively.
