In this short paper, we show that the peeling property still holds for Bondi-Sachs metrics with nonzero cosmological constant under the new boundary condition with nontrivial B, X, Y obtained in [6]. This should indicate the new boundary condition is natural. Moreover, we construct some nontrivial vacuum Bondi-Sachs metrics without the Bondi news. Read More

Since the matrix formed by nonlocal similar patches in a natural image is of low rank, the nuclear norm minimization (NNM) has been widely used for image restoration. However, NNM tends to over-shrink the rank components and treats the different rank components equally, thus limits its capability and flexibility. This paper proposes a new approach for image restoration based ADMM framework via non-convex weighted Schatten $p$-norm minimization (WSNM). Read More

Discontinuity of gauge theory in the gauge condition $n\cdot\partial n\cdot A=0$, which emerges at $n\cdot k=0$, is studied here. Such discontinuity is different from that one confronts in axial gauge and can not be regularized by conventional analytical continuation method. The Faddeev-Popov determinate of the gauge $n\cdot\partial n\cdot A=0$, which is solved explicitly in the manuscript, behaves like a $\delta$-functional of gauge potentials once singularities in the functional integral is neglected and the length along $n^{\mu}$ direction of the space tends to infinity.

The two-Higgs-doublet model (2HDM), as one of the simplest extensions of the Standard Model (SM), is obtained by adding another scalar doublet to the SM, and is featured by a pair of charged scalars, which could affect many low-energy processes. In the "Higgs basis" for a generic 2HDM, only one scalar doublet gets a nonzero vacuum expectation value and, under the criterion of minimal flavor violation, the other one is fixed to be either color-singlet or color-octet, which are named as the type-III and the type-C 2HDM, respectively. In this paper, we study the charged-scalar effects of these two models on the $K^0-\bar{K}^0$ mixing, an ideal process to probe New Physics (NP) beyond the SM. Read More

This article is devoted to studying the null controllability of evolution equations with memory terms. The problem is challenging not only because the state equation contains memory terms but also because the classical controllability requirement at the final time has to be reinforced, involving the contribution of the memory term, to ensure that the solution reaches the equilibrium. Using duality arguments, the problem is reduced to the obtention of suitable observability estimates for the adjoint system. Read More

We propose a convenient orthogonal basis of the Hilbert space for the quantum spin chain associated with the $A^{(2)}_{2}$ algebra (or the Izergin-Korepin model). It is shown that the monodromy-matrix elements acting on this basis take simple forms, which is quite similar as that for the quantum spin chain associated with $A_n$ algebra in the so-called F-basis. As an application of our general results, we present the explicit expressions of the Bethe states in this basis for the Izergin-Korepin model. Read More

We present ten $R$-band photometric observations of eight different transits of the hot Jupiter HAT-P-33b, which has been targeted by our Transiting Exoplanet Monitoring Project (TEMP). The data were obtained by two telescopes at the Xinglong Station of National Astronomical Observatories of China (NAOC) from 2013 December through 2016 January, and exhibit photometric scatter of $1.6-3.

In this paper, we prove a $\mathcal C^{2,\alpha}$-estimate for the solution to the complex Monge-Amp\`ere equation $\det(u_{i\bar{j}})=f$ with $0< f\in \mathcal C^{\alpha}$, under the assumption that $u\in \mathcal C^{1,\beta }$ for some $\beta <1$ which depends on $n$ and $\alpha $. Read More

We study the unidirectional amplification of optical probe fields in a three-mode optomechanical system, where the mechanical resonator interacts with two linearly-coupled optical cavities and the cavities are driven by strong optical pump fields. An optical probe field is injected into one of the cavity modes, and at the same time, it is applied to the mechanical mode after being down-converted by the optical pump frequency. We show that the transmission of the probe field can be amplified in one direction and de-amplified in the opposite direction. Read More

Recent technical advances lead to the coupling of PET and MRI scanners, enabling to acquire functional and anatomical data simultaneously. In this paper, we propose a tight frame based PET-MRI joint reconstruction model via the joint sparsity of tight frame coefficients. In addition, a non-convex balanced approach is adopted to take the different sparsity patterns of PET and MRI images into account. Read More

Interface widely exists in carbon nanotube (CNT) assembly materials, taking place at different length scales. It determines severely the mechanical properties of these assembly materials. Here I assess the mechanical properties of individual CNTs and CNT bundles, the inter-layer or inter-shell mechanics in multi-walled CNTs, the shear properties between adjacent CNTs, and the assembly-dependent mechanical and multifunctional properties of macroscopic CNT fibers and films.

Artificial defects embedded in periodic structures are important foundation for creating localized states with vast range of applications in condensed matter physics, photonics and acoustics. In photonics, localized states are extensively used to confine and manipulate photons. Up to now, all the proposed localized states are reciprocal and restricted by time reversal symmetry. Read More

This paper presents a hierarchical control scheme for interconnected linear systems. At the higher layer of the control structure a robust centralized Model Predictive Control (MPC) algorithm based on a reduced order dynamic model of the overall system optimizes a long-term performance index penalizing the deviation of the state and the control input from their nominal values. At the lower layer local MPC regulators, possibly working at different rates, are designed for the full order models of the subsystems to refine the control action computed at the higher layer.

We present systematic studies of the transient dynamics of GaAs by ultrafast time-resolved optical reflectivity. In photo excited non-equilibrium states, we found a sign reverse in transient reflectivity spectra $\Delta R/R$ (t $>$ 0), from positive around room temperature to negative at cryogenic temperatures. The former corresponds to a transient free carrier metallic state, while the latter is attributed to an exciton insulating state, in which the transient electronic properties is mostly dominated by excitons, resulting in a transient metal-insulator transition (MIT).

Compressed sensing (CS) with prior information concerns the problem of reconstructing a sparse signal with the aid of a similar signal which is known beforehand. We consider a new approach to integrate the prior information into CS via maximizing the correlation between the prior knowledge and the desired signal. We then present a geometric analysis for the proposed method under sub-Gaussian measurements. Read More

We show the strong well-posedness of SDEs driven by general multiplicative L\'evy noises with Sobolev diffusion and jump coefficients and integrable drift. Moreover, we also study the strong Feller property, irreducibility as well as the exponential ergodicity of the corresponding semigroup when the coefficients are time-independent and singular dissipative. In particular, the large jump is allowed in the equation. Read More

The ability to manipulate the frequency of light is of great importance in both fundamental quantum sciences and practical applications. Traditional method for frequency conversion relies on nonlinear optical processes, which are faced with the obstacles of low efficiency and limited bandwidth. Recent developments of topological photonics introduce the concepts of gauge potentials and magnetic fields to the realm of photons. Read More

We present first evidence for the process $e^+e^-\to \gamma\eta_c(1S)$ at six center-of-mass energies between 4.01 and 4.60~GeV using data collected by the BESIII experiment operating at BEPCII. Read More

Rate-compatible error-correcting codes (ECCs), which consist of a set of extended codes, are of practical interest in both wireless communications and data storage. In this work, we first study the lower bounds for rate-compatible ECCs, thus proving the existence of good rate-compatible codes. Then, we propose a general framework for constructing rate-compatible ECCs based on cosets and syndromes of a set of nested linear codes. Read More

Apollonian gaskets are formed by repeatedly filling the interstices between four mutually tangent circles with further tangent circles. We experimentally study the pair correlation, electrostatic energy, and nearest neighbor spacing of centers of circles from Apollonian gaskets. Even though the centers of these circles are not uniformly distributed in any `ambient' space, after proper normalization, all these statistics seem to exhibit some interesting limiting behaviors.

In this paper, by limiting twisted conical K\"ahler-Ricci flows, we prove the long-time existence and uniqueness of cusp K\"ahler-Ricci flow on compact K\"ahler manifold $M$ which carries a smooth hypersurface $D$ such that the twisted canonical bundle $K_M+D$ is ample. Furthermore, we prove that this flow converge to a unique cusp K\"ahler-Einstein metric. Read More

In this paper we discuss the supersymmetric localization of the 4D $\mathcal{N}=2$ off-shell gauged supergravity on the background of the $\textrm{AdS}_4$ neutral topological black hole, which is the gravity dual of the ABJM theory defined on the boundary $\textrm{S}^1 \times \mathbb{H}^2$. We compute the large-$N$ expansion of the supergravity partition function. The result gives the black hole entropy with the logarithmic correction, which matches the previous result of the entanglement entropy of the ABJM theory up to some stringy effects. Read More

We propose an intuitive method, called time-dependent population imaging (TDPI), to map the dynamical processes of high harmonic generation (HHG) in solids by solving the time-dependent Schr\"{o}dinger equation (TDSE). It is shown that the real-time dynamical characteristics of HHG in solids, such as the instantaneous photon energies of emitted harmonics, can be read directly from the energy-resolved population oscillations of electrons in the TDPIs. Meanwhile, the short and long trajectories of solid HHG are illustrated clearly from TDPI. 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

We describe a diagrammatic procedure which lifts strict monoidal actions from additive categories to categories of complexes avoiding any use of direct sums. As an application, we prove that every simple transitive $2$-representation of the $2$-category of projective bimodules over a finite dimensional algebra is equivalent to a cell $2$-representation.

In tunnel junctions between ferromagnets and heavy elements with strong spin orbit coupling the magnetoresistance is often dominated by tunneling anisotropic magnetoresistance (TAMR). This makes conventional DC spin injection techniques impractical for determining the spin relaxation time ($\tau_s$). Here, we show that this obstacle for measurements of $\tau_s$ can be overcome by 2nd harmonic spin-injection-magnetoresistance (SIMR). Read More

In recent years deep learning algorithms have shown extremely high performance on machine learning tasks such as image classification and speech recognition. In support of such applications, various FPGA accelerator architectures have been proposed for convolutional neural networks (CNNs) that enable high performance for classification tasks at lower power than CPU and GPU processors. However, to date, there has been little research on the use of FPGA implementations of deconvolutional neural networks (DCNNs). Read More

The finite-difference time-domain algorithm is a popular numerical method for solving electromagnetic problems. FDTD simulations can suffer from instability due to the explicit nature of the method. Enforcement of stability can be particularly challenging in scenarios where a setup is composed of multiple components, such as differently refined FDTD grids, macromodels, advanced boundary conditions, and others.

We present Deep Speaker, a neural speaker embedding system that maps utterances to a hypersphere where speaker similarity is measured by cosine similarity. The embeddings generated by Deep Speaker can be used for many tasks, including speaker identification, verification, and clustering. We experiment with ResCNN and GRU architectures to extract the acoustic features, then mean pool to produce utterance-level speaker embeddings, and train using triplet loss based on cosine similarity.

Nodal loop appears when two bands, typically one electron-like and one hole-like, are crossing each other linearly along a one-dimensional manifold in the reciprocal space. Here we propose a new type of nodal loop which emerges from crossing between two bands which are both electron-like (or hole-like) along certain direction. Close to any point on such loop (dubbed as a type-II nodal loop), the linear spectrum is strongly tilted and tipped over along one transverse direction, leading to marked differences in magnetic, optical, and transport responses compared with the conventional (type-I) nodal loops.

Semi-supervised learning plays an important role in large-scale machine learning. Properly using additional unlabeled data (largely available nowadays) often can improve the machine learning accuracy. However, if the machine learning model is misspecified for the underlying true data distribution, the model performance could be seriously jeopardized. Read More

Transition metal dichalcogenides (TMDCs), with their two-dimensional structures and sizable bandgaps, are good candidates for barrier materials in tunneling field-effect transistor (TFET) formed from atomic precision vertical stacks of graphene and insulating crystals of a few atomic layers in thickness. We report first-principles study of the electronic properties of the Graphene/WS$_2$/Graphene sandwich structure revealing strong interface effects on dielectric properties and predicting a high ON/OFF ratio with an appropriate WS$_2$ thickness and a suitable range of the gate voltage. Both the band spin-orbit coupling splitting and the dielectric constant of the WS$_2$ layer depend on its thickness when in contact with the graphene electrodes, indicating strong influence from graphene across the interfaces.

We demonstrate non-volatile, n-type, back-gated, MoS$_{2}$ transistors, placed directly on an epitaxial grown, single crystalline, PbZr$_{0.2}$Ti$_{0.8}$O$_{3}$ (PZT) ferroelectric. Read More

In this paper, we consider the singular isothermal sphere lensing model that has a spherically symmetric power-law mass distribution $\rho_{tot}(r)\sim r^{-\gamma}$. We investigate whether the mass density power-law index $\gamma$ is cosmologically evolutionary by using the strong gravitational lensing (SGL) observation, in combination with other cosmological observations. We also check whether the constraint result of $\gamma$ is affected by the cosmological model, by considering several simple dynamical dark energy models. Read More

The structural, magnetic, and electronic properties of (STO)$_4$/(YTO)$_2$ superlattice consisting of Mott insulator YTiO$_3$ (YTO) and band insulator SrTiO$_3$ (STO) under strain are investigated by the density-functional-theory plus \emph{U} method. It is found that an insulator-metal transition occurs when a compressive strain of 0.2\% is applied. Read More

The emergence of two-dimensional (2D) materials has attracted a great deal of attention due to their fascinating physical properties and potential applications for future nanoelectronic devices. Since the first isolation of graphene, a Dirac material, a large family of new functional 2D materials have been discovered and characterized, including insulating 2D boron nitride, semiconducting 2D transition metal dichalcogenides and black phosphorus, and superconducting 2D bismuth strontium calcium copper oxide, molybdenum disulphide and niobium selenide, etc. Here, we report the identification of ferromagnetic thin flakes of Cr2Ge2Te6 (CGT) with thickness down to a few nanometers, which provides a very important piece to the van der Waals structures consisting of various 2D materials.

Dynamic adaptive streaming over HTTP (DASH) has recently been widely deployed in the Internet and adopted in the industry. It, however, does not impose any adaptation logic for selecting the quality of video fragments requested by clients and suffers from lackluster performance with respect to a number of desirable properties: efficiency, stability, and fairness when multiple players compete for a bottleneck link. In this paper, we propose a throughput-friendly DASH (TFDASH) rate control scheme for video streaming with multiple clients over DASH to well balance the trade-offs among efficiency, stability, and fairness.

We present a new catalog of narrow-line Seyfert 1 (NLSy1) galaxies from the Sloan Digital Sky Survey Data Release 12 (SDSS DR12). This was obtained by a systematic analysis through modeling of the continuum and emission lines of the spectra of all the 68,859 SDSS DR12 objects that are classified as "QSO" by the SDSS spectroscopic pipeline with z < 0.8 and a median signal-to-noise ratio (S/N) > 2 per pixel.

In this paper, we study the asymptotic behavior of the Hermitian-Yang-Mills flow on a reflexive sheaf. We prove that the limiting reflexive sheaf is isomorphic to the double dual of the graded sheaf associated to the Harder-Narasimhan-Seshadri filtration, this answers a question by Bando and Siu.

Compressive sensing (CS) has attracted considerable research from signal/image processing communities. Recent studies further show that structured or group sparsity often leads to more powerful signal reconstruction techniques in various CS taskes. Unlike the conventional sparsity-promoting convex regularization methods, this paper proposes a new approach for image compressive sensing recovery using group sparse coding via non-convex weighted $\ell_p$ minimization.

POLAR is space-borne detector designed for a precise measurement of gamma-ray polarization of the prompt emissions of Gamma-Ray Bursts in the energy range 50 keV - 500 keV. POLAR is a compact Compton polarimeter consisting of 40$\times$ 40 plastic scintillator bars read out by 25 multi-anode PMTs. In May 2015, we performed a series of tests of the POLAR flight model with 100\% polarized x-rays beams at the European Synchrotron Radiation Facility beam-line ID11 aming to study thresholds, crosstalk between channels and responses of POLAR flight model to polarized X-ray beams.

We consider the phase retrieval problem of recovering the unknown signal from the magnitude-only measurements, where the measurements can be contaminated by both sparse arbitrary corruption and bounded random noise. We propose a new nonconvex algorithm for robust phase retrieval, namely Robust Wirtinger Flow, to jointly estimate the unknown signal and the sparse corruption. We show that our proposed algorithm is guaranteed to converge linearly to the unknown true signal up to a minimax optimal statistical precision in such a challenging setting. Read More

Aggregation and visualization of geographical data are an important part of environmental data mining, environmental modelling, and agricultural management. However, it is difficult to aggregate geospatial data of the various formats, such as maps, census and survey data. This paper presents a framework named PlaniSphere, which can aggregate the various geospatial datasets, and synthesizes raw data. Read More

Topological metals with protected band-crossing points have been attracting great interest. Here we report novel topological band features in a family of metal diboride materials. Using first- principles calculations, we show that these materials are metallic, and close to Fermi level, there appears coexistence of one pair of nodal rings and one pair of triply-degenerate nodal points (TNPs).
