Shot noise of spin current and spin transfer torqueDec 21 2012We report the theoretical investigation of noise spectrum of spin current and spin transfer torque for non-colinear spin polarized transport in a spin-valve device which consists of normal scattering region connected by two ferromagnetic electrodes. Our ... More

Anomalous gauge couplings of the Higgs boson at the CERN LHC: Semileptonic mode in WW scatteringsNov 19 2008Mar 14 2009We make a full tree level study of the signatures of anomalous gauge couplings of the Higgs boson at the CERN LHC via the semileptonic decay mode in WW scatterings. Both signals and backgrounds are studied at the hadron level for the Higgs mass in the ... More

Error Rate Bounds and Iterative Weighted Majority Voting for CrowdsourcingNov 15 2014Crowdsourcing has become an effective and popular tool for human-powered computation to label large datasets. Since the workers can be unreliable, it is common in crowdsourcing to assign multiple workers to one task, and to aggregate the labels in order ... More

Complexity Analysis of the Lasso Regularization PathMay 01 2012May 19 2012The regularization path of the Lasso can be shown to be piecewise linear, making it possible to "follow" and explicitly compute the entire path. We analyze in this paper this popular strategy, and prove that its worst case complexity is exponential in ... More

Creating and probing wide-bandgap nanoribbon-like structures in a continuous metallic graphene sheetDec 21 2015The light-like dispersion of graphene monolayer results in many novel electronic properties in it1, however, this gapless feature also limits the applications of graphene monolayer in digital electronics2. A rare working solution to generate a moderate ... More
