It has been well recognized that detecting drivable area is central to self-driving cars. Most of existing methods attempt to locate road surface by using lane line, thereby restricting to drivable area on which have a clear lane mark. This paper proposes an unsupervised approach for detecting drivable area utilizing both image data from a monocular camera and point cloud data from a 3D-LIDAR scanner. Read More

Tungstates $A$WO$_4$ with the wolframite structure characterized by the $A$O$_6$ octahedral zigzag chains along the $c$-axis, can be magnetic if $A$=Mn, Fe, Co, Cu, Ni. Among them, MnWO$_4$ is a unique member with a cycloid Mn$^{2+}$ spin order developed at low temperature, leading to an interesting type-II multiferroic behavior. However, so far no other multiferroic material in the tungstate family has been found. Read More

Hopf insulators are intriguing three-dimensional topological insulators characterized by an integer topological invariant. They originate from the mathematical theory of Hopf fibration and epitomize the deep connection between knot theory and topological phases of matter, which distinguishes them from other classes of topological insulators. Here, we implement a model Hamiltonian for Hopf insulators in a solid-state quantum simulator and report the first experimental observation of their topological properties, including fascinating topological links associated with the Hopf fibration and the integer-valued topological invariant obtained from a direct tomographic measurement.

The mid-infrared (MIR) spectral range, pertaining to important applications such as molecular 'fingerprint' imaging, remote sensing, free space telecommunication and optical radar, is of particular scientific interest and technological importance. However, state-of-the-art materials for MIR detection are limited by intrinsic noise and inconvenient fabrication processes, resulting in high cost photodetectors requiring cryogenic operation. We report black arsenic-phosphorus-based long wavelength infrared photodetectors with room temperature operation up to 8. Read More

Person re-identification task has been greatly boosted by deep convolutional neural networks (CNNs) in recent years. The core of which is to enlarge the inter-class distinction as well as reduce the intra-class variance. However, to achieve this, existing deep models prefer to adopt image pairs or triplets to form verification loss, which is inefficient and unstable since the number of training pairs or triplets grows rapidly as the number of training data grows.

The non-repeating fast radio bursts (FRBs) could arise from catastrophic stellar explosions or magnetar giant flares, so relativistic blast waves might be produced in these events. Motivated by this, we here search for GeV counterparts to all non-repeating FRBs with Fermi Large Area Telescope (LAT), including FRB 131104 that is claimed to be possibly associated with a gamma-ray transient candidate detected by Swift Burst Alert Telescope (BAT). FRB 131104 enters the field of view (FoV) of LAT ~5000s after the burst time, so we are only able to search for the GeV afterglow emission during this period, but no significant GeV emission is detected.

We perform three dimensional (3D) ideal magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) simulations to study the parametric decay instability of Alfven waves in turbulent plasmas and explore its possible applications in the solar wind. We find that, over a broad range of parameters in background turbulence amplitudes, the parametric decay instability of an Alfven wave with various amplitudes can still occur, though its growth rate in turbulent plasmas tends to be lower than both the theoretical linear theory prediction and that in the non-turbulent situations. Spatial - temporal FFT analyses of density fluctuations produced by the parametric decay instability match well with the dispersion relation of the slow MHD waves. Read More

Data quality of Phasor Measurement Unit (PMU) is receiving increasing attention as it has been identified as one of the limiting factors that affect many wide-area measurement system (WAMS) based applications. In general, existing PMU calibration methods include offline testing and model based approaches. However, in practice, the effectiveness of both is limited due to the very strong assumptions employed. Read More

Deep neural networks (DNNs) play a key role in many applications. Unsurprisingly, they also became a potential attack target of adversaries. Some studies have demonstrated DNN classifiers can be fooled by the adversarial example, which is crafted via introducing some perturbations into an original sample. Read More

Domain adaptation (DA) is transfer learning which aims to leverage labeled data in a related source domain to achieve informed knowledge transfer and help the classification of unlabeled data in a target domain. In this paper, we propose a novel DA method, namely Robust Data Geometric Structure Aligned, Close yet Discriminative Domain Adaptation (RSA-CDDA), which brings closer, in a latent joint subspace, both source and target data distributions, and aligns inherent hidden source and target data geometric structures while performing discriminative DA in repulsing both interclass source and target data. The proposed method performs domain adaptation between source and target in solving a unified model, which incorporates data distribution constraints, in particular via a nonparametric distance, i.

We convert a GeV laser-plasma electron accelerator into a compact femtosecond-pulsed $\gamma$-ray source by inserting a $100 \mu$m-thick glass plate $\sim3$ cm after the accelerator exit. With near-unity reliability, and requiring only crude alignment, this glass plasma mirror retro-reflected spent drive laser pulses (photon energy $\hbar\omega_L = 1.17$ eV) with $>50\%$ efficiency back onto trailing electrons (peak Lorentz factor $1000 < \gamma_e < 4400$), creating an optical undulator that generated $\sim10^8 \gamma$-ray photons with sub-mrad divergence, estimated peak brilliance $\sim10^{21}$ photons/s/mm$^2$/mrad$^2$/$0.

We study the problem of dictionary learning for signals that can be represented as polynomials or polynomial matrices, such as convolutive signals with time delays or acoustic impulse responses. Recently, we developed a method for polynomial dictionary learning based on the fact that a polynomial matrix can be expressed as a polynomial with matrix coefficients, where the coefficient of the polynomial at each time lag is a scalar matrix. However, a polynomial matrix can be also equally represented as a matrix with polynomial elements. Read More

In a world awash with data, the ability to think and compute with data has become an important skill for students in many fields. For that reason, inclusion of some level of statistical computing in many introductory-level courses has grown more common in recent years. Existing literature has documented multiple success stories of teaching statistics with R, bolstered by the capabilities of R Markdown. Read More

Brain Computer Interface (BCI) can help patients of neuromuscular diseases restore parts of the movement and communication abilities that they have lost. Most of BCIs rely on mapping brain activities to device instructions, but limited number of brain activities decides the limited abilities of BCIs. To deal with the problem of limited ablility of BCI, this paper verified the feasibility of constructing BCI based on decoding imagined speech electroencephalography (EEG). Read More

The phosphorous activation in Ge n$^{+}$/p junctions is compared in terms of junction depth, by using laser spike annealing at 860{\deg}C for 400$\mu$s. The reverse junction leakage is found to strongly depend on the abruptness of dopant profiles. A shallow and abrupt junction is shown to have lower phosphorous activation level, due to surface dose loss, and higher band-to-band tunneling (BTBT) leakage, when compared to the deep junction.

Side-channel risks of Intel's SGX have recently attracted great attention. Under the spotlight is the newly discovered page-fault attack, in which an OS-level adversary induces page faults to observe the page-level access patterns of a protected process running in an SGX enclave. With almost all proposed defense focusing on this attack, little is known about whether such efforts indeed raises the bar for the adversary, whether a simple variation of the attack renders all protection ineffective, not to mention an in-depth understanding of other attack surfaces in the SGX system.

In this paper, a novel spatial modulation aided non-orthogonal multiple access (SM-NOMA) system is proposed. We use mutual information (MI) to characterize the achievable spectral efficiency (SE) of the proposed SM-NOMA system. Due to the finite-alphabet space-domain inputs employed by SM, the expression of the corresponding MI lacks a closed-form formulation. Read More

Broadcasting quantum and classical information is a basic task in quantum information processing, and is also a useful model in the study of quantum correlations including quantum discord. We establish a full operational characterization of two-sided quantum discord in terms of bilocal broadcasting of quantum correlations. Moreover, we show that both the optimal fidelity of unilocal broadcasting of the correlations in an arbitrary bipartite quantum state and that of broadcasting an arbitrary set of quantum states can be formulized as semidefinite programs (SDPs), which are efficiently computable.

Photo-transmutation of long-lived nuclear waste induced by high-charge relativistic electron beam (e-beam) from laser plasma accelerator is demonstrated. Collimated relativistic e-beam with a high charge of approximately 100 nC is produced from high-intensity laser interaction with near-critical-density (NCD) plasma. Such e-beam impinges on a high-Z convertor and then radiates energetic bremsstrahlung photons with flux approaching 10^{11} per laser shot. Read More

We consider a sensor network focused on target localization, where sensors measure the signal strength emitted from the target. Each measurement is quantized to one bit and sent to the fusion center. A general attack is considered at some sensors that attempts to cause the fusion center to produce an inaccurate estimation of the target location with a large mean-square-error. Read More

Chiral anomaly of Weyl magnons (WMs), featured by nontrivial band crossings at paired Weyl nodes (WNs) of opposite chirality, is investigated. It is shown that WMs can be realized in stacked honeycomb ferromagnets. Using the Aharonov-Casher effect that is about the interaction between magnetic moments and electric fields, the magnon motion in honeycomb layers can be quantized into magnonic Landau levels (MLLs).

Recent experimental realizations of superfluid mixtures of Bose and Fermi quantum gases provide a unique platform for exploring diverse superfluid phenomena. We study dipole oscillations of a double superfluid in a cigar-shaped optical dipole trap, consisting of $^{41}$K and $^{6}$Li atoms with a large mass imbalance, where the oscillations of the bosonic and fermionic components are coupled via the Bose-Fermi interaction. In our high-precision measurements, the frequencies of both components are observed to be shifted from the single-species ones, and exhibit unusual features. Read More

Several finite difference methods are proposed for the infinitesimal generator of 1D asymmetric $\alpha$-stable L\'{e}vy motions, based on the fact that the operator becomes a multiplier in the spectral space. These methods take the general form of a discrete convolution, and the coefficients (or the weights) in the convolution are chosen to approximate the exact multiplier after appropriate transform. The accuracy and the associated advantages/disadvantages are also discussed, providing some guidance on the choice of the right scheme for practical problems, like in the calculation of mean exit time for random processes governed by general asymmetric $\alpha$-stable motions.

This paper addresses image classification through learning a compact and discriminative dictionary efficiently. Given a structured dictionary with each atom (columns in the dictionary matrix) related to some label, we propose cross-label suppression constraint to enlarge the difference among representations for different classes. Meanwhile, we introduce group regularization to enforce representations to preserve label properties of original samples, meaning the representations for the same class are encouraged to be similar.

The big data era is swamping areas including data analysis, machine/deep learning, signal processing, statistics, scientific computing, and cloud computing. The multidimensional feature and huge volume of big data put urgent requirements to the development of multilinear modeling tools and efficient algorithms. In this paper, we build a novel multilinear tensor space that supports useful algorithms such as SVD and QR, while generalizing the matrix space to fourth-order tensors was believed to be challenging.

The chest X-ray is one of the most commonly accessible radiological examinations for screening and diagnosis of many lung diseases. A tremendous number of X-ray imaging studies accompanied by radiological reports are accumulated and stored in many modern hospitals' Picture Archiving and Communication Systems (PACS). On the other side, it is still an open question how this type of hospital-size knowledge database containing invaluable imaging informatics (i. Read More

Patch-level image representation is very important for object classification and detection, since it is robust to spatial transformation, scale variation, and cluttered background. Many existing methods usually require fine-grained supervisions (e.g. Read More

We propose the Recurrent Soft Attention Model, which integrates the visual attention from the original image to a LSTM memory cell through a down-sample network. The model recurrently transmits visual attention to the memory cells for glimpse mask generation, which is a more natural way for attention integration and exploitation in general object detection and recognition problem. We test our model under the metric of the top-1 accuracy on the CIFAR-10 dataset. Read More

For highly interested organolead perovskite based solar cells, the photoproducts are regarded as the co-existed exciton and free carriers. In this study, we carefully re-examined this conclusion with our recently developed density-resolved spectroscopic method. Heat-annealing related two photoproduct systems are observed. Read More

It is generally accepted that, when moving in groups, animals process information to coordinate their motion. Recent studies have begun to apply rigorous methods based on Information Theory to quantify such distributed computation. Following this perspective, we use transfer entropy to quantify dynamic information flows locally in space and time across a school of fish during directional changes around a circular tank, i.

We investigate the single qubit transformations under some typical incoherent operations, such as, incoherent operation (IO), strictly incoherent operation (SIO), physically incoherent operation (PIO), and coherence-preserving operation (CPO). Our research reveals that SIO=IO in the sense that the transformable region given by SIO is equal to the transformable region given by IO in the Bloch sphere representation. Moreover, these incoherent operations have a clear hierarchical relationship in the view of transformable region: CPO $\subset$ PIO $\subset$ SIO=IO. Read More

The total correlations in a bipartite quantum system are measured by the quantum mutual information $\mathcal{I}$, which consists of quantum discord and classical correlation. However, recent results in quantum information shows that coherence, which is a part of total correlation, is more general and more fundamental than discord. The role of coherence in quantum resource theories is worthwhile to investigate. Read More

Based on first-principle calculations and $k\cdot p$ model analysis, we show that the quantum anomalous Hall (QAH) insulating phase can be realized in the functionalized hematite (or $\alpha$-Fe$_2$O$_3$) nanosheet and the obtained topological gap can be as large as $\sim$300 meV. The driving force of the topological phase is the strong interactions of localized Fe 3$d$ electrons operating on the quadratic band crossing point of the non-interacting band structures. Such interaction driven QAH insulator is different from the single particle band topology mechanism in experimentally realized QAH insulator, the magnetic ion doped topological insulator film.

The modification of hard jets in an extended static medium held at a fixed temperature is studied using three different Monte-Carlo event generators (LBT, MATTER, MARTINI). Each event generator contains a different set of assumptions regarding the energy and virtuality of the partons within a jet versus the energy scale of the medium, and hence, applies to a different epoch in the space-time history of the jet evolution. For the first time, modeling is developed where a jet may sequentially transition from one generator to the next, on a parton-by-parton level, providing a detailed simulation of the space-time evolution of medium modified jets over a much broader dynamic range than has been attempted previously in a single calculation.

It has been recently demonstrated that a singlet-triplet spin qubit in semiconductor double quantum dots can be controlled by changing the height of the potential barrier between the two dots ("barrier control"), which has led to a considerable reduction of charge noises as compared to the traditional tilt control method. In this paper we show, through a molecular-orbital-theoretic calculation of double quantum dots influenced by a charged impurity, that the relative charge noise for a system under the barrier control not only is smaller than that for the tilt control, but actually decreases as a function of an increasing exchange interaction. This is understood as a combined consequence of the greatly suppressed detuning noise when the two dots are symmetrically operated, as well as an enhancement of the inter-dot hopping energy of an electron when the barrier is lowered which in turn reduces the relative charge noise at large exchange interaction values.

We observe for the first time the process $e^{+}e^{-} \rightarrow \eta h_c$ with data collected by the BESIII experiment. Significant signals are observed at the center-of-mass energy $\sqrt{s}=4.226$ GeV, and the Born cross section is measured to be $(9. Read More

We derive a simple analytical formula to describe the evolution of spectral index $\beta$ in the steep decay phase shaped by the curvature effect with assumption that the spectral parameters and Lorentz factor of jet shell is the same for different latitude. Here, the value of $\beta$ is estimated in 0.3$-$10keV energy band. Read More

We investigate the behavior of coherence in scattering quantum walk search on complete graph under the condition that the total number of vertices of the graph is greatly larger than the marked number of vertices we are searching, $N \gg v$. We find that the consumption of coherence represents the increase of the success probability for the searching,also the consumption of coherence is related to the efficiency of the algorithm represented by oracle queries.If no coherence is consumed, the efficiency of the algorithm will be the same as the classical blind search, implying that coherence is responsible for the speed up in this quantum algorithm over its classical counterpart.

In this work, we propose "Residual Attention Network", a convolutional neural network using attention mechanism which can incorporate with state-of-art feed forward network architecture in an end-to-end training fashion. Our Residual Attention Network is built by stacking Attention Modules which generate attention-aware features. The attention-aware features from different modules change adaptively as layers going deeper. Read More

We compute higher Frobenius-Schur indicators of Radford algebras in positive characteristic and find minimal polynomials of these linearly recursive sequences. As a result of Kashina, Montgomery and Ng, we obtain gauge invariants for the monoidal categories of representations of Radford algebras. Read More

The notion of $n$-th indicator for a finite-dimensional Hopf algebra was introduced by Kashina, Montgomery and Ng as gauge invariance of the monoidal category of its representations. The properties of these indicators were further investigated by Shimizu. In this short note, we show that the indicators appearing in positive characteristic all share the same sequence pattern if we assume the coradical of the Hopf algebra is a local Hopf subalgebra.

In a recent paper [Comm. Algebra, 44(2016) 4724-4731], Das introduced the graph $\mathcal{I}n(\mathbb{V})$, called subspace inclusion graph on a finite dimensional vector space $\mathbb{V}$, where the vertex set is the collection of nontrivial proper subspaces of $\mathbb{V}$ and two vertices are adjacent if one is properly contained in another. Das studied the diameter, girth, clique number, and chromatic number of $\mathcal{I}n(\mathbb{V})$ when the base field is arbitrary, and he also studied some other properties of $\mathcal{I}n(\mathbb{V})$ when the base field is finite.

An earlier study of a collaborative chat intervention in a Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) identified negative effects on attrition stemming from a requirement for students to be matched with exactly one partner prior to beginning the activity. That study raised questions about how to orchestrate a collaborative chat intervention in a MOOC context in order to provide the benefit of synchronous social engagement without the coordination difficulties. In this paper we present a careful analysis of an intervention designed to overcome coordination difficulties by welcoming students into the chat on a rolling basis as they arrive rather than requiring them to be matched with a partner before beginning.

We give the 3-dimensional Sklyanin algebras $S$ that are module-finite over their center $Z$ the structure of a Poisson $Z$-order (in the sense of Brown-Gordon). We show that the induced Poisson bracket on $Z$ is non-vanishing and is induced by an explicit potential. The ${\mathbb Z}_3 \times \Bbbk^\times$-orbits of symplectic cores of the Poisson structure are determined (where the group acts on $S$ by algebra automorphisms). Read More

In this article, we study a class of nonselfadjoint Schr{\"o}dinger operators which are perturbation of a model operator satisfying some weighted coercive assumption. For the model operator, we prove that the derivatives of the resolvent satisfy some Gevrey estimates at the threshold zero. As application, we establish large time expansions for the semigroups e --tH and e --itH for t > 0 with subexponential time-decay estimates on the remainder. Read More
