Millimeter-wave (mmWave) communications have been considered as a key technology for future 5G wireless networks because of the orders-of-magnitude wider bandwidth than current cellular bands. In this paper, we consider the problem of codebook-based joint analog-digital hybrid precoder and combiner design for spatial multiplexing transmission in a mmWave multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) system. We propose to jointly select analog precoder and combiner pair for each data stream successively aiming at maximizing the channel gain while suppressing the interference between different data streams. Read More

Analog/digital hybrid precoder and combiner have been widely used in millimeter wave (mmWave) multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) systems due to its energy-efficient and economic superiorities. Infinite resolution of phase shifters (PSs) for the analog beamformer can achieve very close performance compared to the full-digital scheme but will result in high complexity and intensive power consumption. Thus, more cost effective and energy efficient low resolution PSs are typically used in practical mmWave MIMO systems. Read More

This paper investigates the problem of hybrid precoder and combiner design for multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM) systems operating in millimeter-wave (mmWave) bands. We propose a novel iterative scheme to design the codebook-based analog precoder and combiner in forward and reverse channels. During each iteration, we apply compressive sensing (CS) technology to efficiently estimate the equivalent MIMO-OFDM mmWave channel. Read More

Physical layer security has been considered as an important security approach in wireless communications to protect legitimate transmission from passive eavesdroppers. This paper investigates the physical layer security of a wireless multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM) communication system in the presence of a multiple-antenna eavesdropper. We first propose a transmit-filter-assisted secure MIMO-OFDM system which can destroy the orthogonality of eavesdropper's signals. Read More

Deep convolutional networks have achieved great success for image recognition. However, for action recognition in videos, their advantage over traditional methods is not so evident. We present a general and flexible video-level framework for learning action models in videos. 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 present a lattice Monte Carlo algorithm based on the one originally proposed by Maggs and Rossetto for simulating electrostatic interactions in inhomogeneous dielectric media. The original algorithm is known to produce attractive interactions between particles of the same dielectric constant in the medium of different dielectric constant. We demonstrate that such interactions are spurious, caused by incorrectly biased statistical weight arising from particle motion during the Monte Carlo moves. Read More

Photodetectors with broadband optical response have promising applications in many advanced optoelectronic and photonic devices. Especially, those with the detection range up to mid-infrared at room temperature are very challenging and highly desired. Recently, Weyl semimetal has been discovered and proposed to be favorable for photodetection since in general it breaks Lorentz invariance to have tilted chiral Weyl cones around Fermi level, which leads to chirality dependent photocurrents at arbitrarily long wavelength.

Gaussian process regression (GPR) model has been widely used to fit data when the regression function is unknown and its nice properties have been well established. In this article, we introduce an extended t-process regression (eTPR) model, a nonlinear model which allows a robust best linear unbiased predictor (BLUP). Owing to its succinct construction, it inherits many attractive properties from the GPR model, such as having closed forms of marginal and predictive distributions to give an explicit form for robust procedures, and easy to cope with large dimensional covariates with an efficient implementation.

The Quantum spin liquid (QSL) is an exotic quantum state of matter that does not exhibit classical magnetic order at zero temperature. The realization of such a state in actual materials is of significant importance, as it would provide a path to protected states for quantum information and also to Majorana fermions - both very active areas of interest in condensed matter physics. No solid evidence for the existence of such materials has been established in the laboratory, however, despite a decades-long search. Read More

In topological quantum computing, information is encoded in "knotted" quantum states of topological phases of matter, thus being locked into topology to prevent decay. Topological precision has been confirmed in quantum Hall liquids by experiments to an accuracy of $10^{-10}$, and harnessed to stabilize quantum memory. In this survey, we discuss the conceptual development of this interdisciplinary field at the juncture of mathematics, physics and computer science. Read More

We report the first dark matter search results from XENON1T, a $\sim$2000-kg-target-mass dual-phase (liquid-gas) xenon time projection chamber in operation at the Laboratori Nazionali del Gran Sasso in Italy and the first ton-scale detector of this kind. The blinded search used 34.2 live days of data acquired between November 2016 and January 2017. Read More

Deconvolutional layers have been widely used in a variety of deep models for up-sampling, including encoder-decoder networks for semantic segmentation and deep generative models for unsupervised learning. One of the key limitations of deconvolutional operations is that they result in the so-called checkerboard problem. This is caused by the fact that no direct relationship exists among adjacent pixels on the output feature map. Read More

The key idea of variational auto-encoders (VAEs) resembles that of traditional auto-encoder models in which spatial information is supposed to be explicitly encoded in the latent space. However, the latent variables in VAEs are vectors, which are commonly interpreted as multiple feature maps of size 1x1. Such representations can only convey spatial information implicitly when coupled with powerful decoders. 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

In this article, we tentatively assign the $\Lambda_c(2860)$, $\Lambda_c(2880)$, $\Xi_c(3055)$ and $\Xi_c(3080)$ to be the D-wave baryon states with the spin-parity $J^P={\frac{3}{2}}^+$, ${\frac{5}{2}}^+$, ${\frac{3}{2}}^+$ and ${\frac{5}{2}}^+$, respectively, and study their masses and pole residues with the QCD sum rules in a systematic way by constructing three-types interpolating currents with the quantum numbers $(L_\rho,L_\lambda)=(0,2)$, $(2,0)$ and $(1,1)$, respectively. The present predictions favor assigning the $\Lambda_c(2860)$, $\Lambda_c(2880)$, $\Xi_c(3055)$ and $\Xi_c(3080)$ to be the D-wave baryon states with the quantum numbers $(L_\rho,L_\lambda)=(0,2)$ and $J^P={\frac{3}{2}}^+$, ${\frac{5}{2}}^+$, ${\frac{3}{2}}^+$ and ${\frac{5}{2}}^+$, respectively. While the predictions for the masses of the $(L_\rho,L_\lambda)=(2,0)$ and $(1,1)$ D-wave $\Lambda_c$ and $\Xi_c$ states can be confronted to the experimental data in the future. Read More

We report on THz time-domain spectroscopy on multiferroic GeV4S8, which undergoes orbital ordering at a Jahn-Teller transition at 30.5 K and exhibits antiferromagnetic order below 14.6 K. Read More

Universal style transfer aims to transfer any arbitrary visual styles to content images. Existing feed-forward based methods, while enjoying the inference efficiency, are mainly limited by inability of generalizing to unseen styles or compromised visual quality. In this paper, we present a simple yet effective method that tackles these limitations without training on any pre-defined styles. Read More

Light beams can be characterized by their complex spatial profiles in both intensity and phase. Analogous to time signals, which can be decomposed into multiple orthogonal frequency functions, a light beam can also be decomposed into a set of spatial modes that are taken from an orthogonal basis. Such a decomposition can provide a tool for spatial spectrum analysis, which may allow the stable, accurate and robust extraction of physical object information that may not be readily achievable using traditional approaches.

Warped cones are metric spaces introduced by John Roe from discrete group actions on compact metric spaces to produce interesting examples in coarse geometry. We show that a certain class of warped cones $\mathcal{O}_\Gamma (M)$ admit a fibred coarse embedding into a $L_p$-space ($1\leq p<\infty$) if and only if the discrete group $\Gamma$ admits a proper affine isometric action on a $L_p$-space. This actually holds for any class of Banach spaces stable under taking Lebesgue-Bochner $L_p$-spaces and ultraproducts, e. Read More

Social media platforms contain a great wealth of information which provides opportunities for us to explore hidden patterns or unknown correlations, and understand people's satisfaction with what they are discussing. As one showcase, in this paper, we present a system, TwiInsight which explores the insight of Twitter data. Different from other Twitter analysis systems, TwiInsight automatically extracts the popular topics under different categories (e. Read More

In 2+1 dimensions, the evolution of flow under the influence of an external electromagnetic field is simulated. The external electromagnetic field is exponentially decaying with time. Under the same initial conditions, flow evolution with and without the external electromagnetic field is compared. Read More

A new gas puff imaging (GPI) diagnostic has been developed on HL-2A tokamak to study two-dimensional plasma edge turbulence in poloidal vs radial plane. During a discharge, neutral helium or deuterium gas is puffed at the edge of the plasma through a rectangular multi-capillary nozzle to generate a gas cloud on the observing plane. Then a specially designed telescope and a high-speed camera are used to observe and photograph the emission from the neutral gas cloud. Read More

In \cite{colin}, Y. Colin de Verdi\`ere proved that the remainder term in the two-term Weyl formula for the eigenvalue counting function for the Dirichlet Laplacian associated with the planar disk is of order $O(\lambda^{2/3})$. In this paper, by combining with the method of exponential sum estimation, we will give a sharper remainder term estimate $O(\lambda^{2/3-1/495})$. Read More

Extensive cooperation among unrelated individuals is unique to humans, who often sacrifice personal benefits for the common good and work together to achieve what they are unable to execute alone. The evolutionary success of our species is indeed due, to a large degree, to our unparalleled other-regarding abilities. Yet, a comprehensive understanding of human cooperation remains a formidable challenge. Read More

Visual question answering is a recently proposed artificial intelligence task that requires a deep understanding of both images and texts. In deep learning, images are typically modeled through convolutional neural networks, and texts are typically modeled through recurrent neural networks. While the requirement for modeling images is similar to traditional computer vision tasks, such as object recognition and image classification, visual question answering raises a different need for textual representation as compared to other natural language processing tasks.

We report high-pressure $^{77}$Se NMR studies on FeSe single crystals that reveal a prominent inhomogeneous NMR linewidth broadening upon cooling, with the magnetic field applied along the tetragonal [110] direction. The data indicate the existence of short-range ordered, inhomogeneous electronic nematicity, which has surprisingly long time scales over milliseconds. The short-range order survives temperatures up to 8 times the structural transition temperature, and remains robust against pressure, in contrast to the strong pressure-dependence of the orbital ordering, structural transition, and the ground state magnetism.

The ability to shape and control light using silicon---the leading material in microchip manufacturing---has fueled rapid growth of the field of silicon photonics. By routing and manipulating optical signals using silicon waveguides, modulators, and detectors, this burgeoning field has brought about an array of new technologies, spanning from energy-efficient computing to protein sequencing on a chip. Despite this tremendous progress, there remains a pressing need for new laser technologies in silicon as the basis for metrology, sensing, and signal processing applications. Read More

We pursue a classification of low-rank super-modular categories parallel to that of modular categories. We classify all super-modular categories up to rank=$6$, and spin modular categories up to rank=$11$. In particular, we show that, up to fusion rules, there is exactly one non-split super-modular category of rank $2,4$ and $6$, namely $PSU(2)_{4k+2}$ for $k=0,1$ and $2$. Read More

Datasets are important for researchers to build models and test how well their machine learning algorithms perform. This paper presents the Rainforest Automation Energy (RAE) dataset to help smart grid researchers test their algorithms which make use of smart meter data. RAE contains 72 days of 1Hz data from a residential house's mains and 24 sub-meters resulting in 6. Read More

The application of high pressure can fundamentally modify the crystalline and electronic structures of elements as well as their chemical reactivity, which could lead to the formation of novel materials. Here, we explore the reactivity of lithium with sodium under high pressure, using a swarm structure searching techniques combined with first-principles calculations, which identify a thermodynamically stable LiNa compound adopting an orthorhombic oP8 phase at pressure above 355 GPa. The formation of LiNa may be a consequence of strong concentration of electrons transfer from the lithium and the sodium atoms into the interstitial sites, which also leads to opening a relatively wide band gap for LiNa-op8.

Using a data set of 2.93 fb$^{-1}$ taken at a center-of-mass energy $\sqrt{s}$ = 3.773 GeV with the BESIII detector at the BEPCII collider, we perform a search for an extra U(1) gauge boson, also denoted as a dark photon. Read More

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 this article, we analyze the strong vertexes $\Sigma_{c}^{*}ND$ and $\Sigma_{b}^{*}NB$ using the three-point QCD sum rules under the Dirac structure of $q\!\!\!/p\!\!\!/\gamma_{\mu}$. We perform our analysis by considering the contributions of the perturbative part and the condensate terms of $<\overline{q}q>$ and $<\frac{\alpha_{s}}{\pi}GG>$. After the form factors are calculated, they are then fitted into analytical functions which are used to get the strong coupling constants for these two vertexes. Read More

Weyl points with monopole charge $\pm 1$ have been extensively studied, however, real materials of multi-Weyl points, whose monopole charges are higher than $1$, have yet to be found. In this Rapid Communication, we show that nodal-line semimetals with nontrivial line connectivity provide natural platforms for realizing Floquet multi-Weyl points. In particular, we show that driving crossing nodal lines by circularly polarized light generates double-Weyl points. Read More

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

Jordan operator algebras for us are norm-closed spaces of operators on a Hilbert space which are closed under the Jordan product. The discovery of the present paper is that there exists a huge and tractable theory of possibly nonselfadjoint Jordan operator algebras; they are far more similar to associative operator algebras than was suspected. We initiate the theory of such algebras. Read More

Coulomb interaction between electrons lies at the heart of magnetism in solids. In contrast to conventional two-dimensional (2D) systems, electrons in monolayer transition metal dichalcogenides (TMDs) possess coupled spin and valley degrees of freedom by the spin-orbit interaction. The electrons are also strongly interacting even in the high-density regime because of the weak dielectric screening in two dimensions and a large band mass. Read More

Recent developments in the relationship between bulk topology and surface crystalline symmetries have led to the discovery of materials whose gapless surface states are protected by crystal symmetries. In fact, there exists only a very limited set of possible surface crystal symmetries, captured by the 17 "wallpaper groups." We show that all possible crystalline insulators, symmorphic and nonsymmorphic, can be exhaustively characterized by considering these groups. Read More

In this project, we propose a novel approach for estimating depth from RGB images. Traditionally, most work uses a single RGB image to estimate depth, which is inherently difficult and generally results in poor performance, even with thousands of data examples. In this work, we alternatively use multiple RGB images that were captured while changing the focus of the camera's lens. Read More

We present the first constraints on the spin-dependent, inelastic scattering cross section of Weakly Interacting Massive Particles (WIMPs) on nucleons from XENON100 data with an exposure of 7.64$\times$10$^3$\,kg\,day. XENON100 is a dual-phase xenon time projection chamber with 62\,kg of active mass, operated at the Laboratori Nazionali del Gran Sasso (LNGS) in Italy and designed to search for nuclear recoils from WIMP-nucleus interactions.

Given a compact Riemannian manifold $M$, we consider a warped product $\bar M = I \times_h M$ where $I$ is an open interval in $\Bbb R$. For a positive function $\psi$ defined on $\bar M$, we generalized the arguments in \cite{GRW2015} and \cite{RW16}, to obtain the curvature estimates for Hessian equations $\sigma_k(\kappa)=\psi(V,\nu(V))$. We also obtain some existence results for the starshaped compact hypersurface $\Sigma$ satisfying the above equation with various assumptions. Read More

We simulate boron on Pb(110) surface by using ab initio evolutionary methodology. Interestingly, the two-dimensional (2D) Dirac Pmmn boron can be formed because of good lattice matching. Unexpectedly, by increasing the thickness of 2D boron, a three-bonded graphene-like structure (P2_1/c boron) was revealed to possess double anisotropic Dirac cones. Read More

Millimeter wave (mmWave) communications have been considered as a key technology for future 5G wireless networks. In order to overcome the severe propagation loss of mmWave channel, mmWave multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) systems with analog/digital hybrid precoding and combining transceiver architecture have been widely considered. However, physical layer security (PLS) in mmWave MIMO systems and the secure hybrid beamformer design have not been well investigated. Read More

We report on optical spectroscopy on the lacunar spinels GaV$_4$S$_8$ and GeV$_4$S$_8$ in the spectral range from 100 to 23000 cm$^{-1}$ and for temperatures from 5 to 300 K. These multiferroic spinel systems reveal Jahn-Teller driven ferroelectricity and complex magnetic order at low temperatures. We study the infrared-active phonon modes and the low-lying electronic excitations in the cubic high-temperature phase, as well as in the orbitally and in the magnetically ordered low-temperature phases.

**Category:**Physics - Superconductivity

In layered transition metal dichalcogenides (LTMDCs) that display both charge density waves (CDWs) and superconductivity, the superconducting state generally emerges directly on suppression of the CDW state. Here, however, we report a different observation for pressurized TaTe2, a non-superconducting CDW-bearing LTMDC at ambient pressure. We find that a superconducting state does not occur in TaTe2 after the full suppression of its CDW state, which we observe at about 3 GPa, but, rather, a non-superconducting semimetal state is observed.
