Hall algebras of cyclic quivers and $q$-deformed Fock spacesJul 11 2015Based on the work of Ringel and Green, one can define the (Drinfeld) double Ringel--Hall algebra ${\mathscr D}(Q)$ of a quiver $Q$ as well as its highest weight modules. The main purpose of the present paper is to show that the basic representation $L(\Lambda_0)$ ... More

On bases of quantized enveloping algebrasJul 18 2003We give a systematic description of many monomial bases for a given quantized enveloping algebra and of many integral monomial bases for the associated Lusztig $\mathbb Z[v,v^{-1}]$-form. The relations between monomial bases, PBW bases and canonical bases ... More

Harmonic lasing of x-ray free electron laser: on the way to smaller and cheaperDec 17 2012May 06 2013By utilizing higher harmonics of undulator radiation, harmonic lasing is helpful in the development of compact x-ray free electron lasers (FELs), i.e. reducing its costs and sizes. Harmonic lasing of FELs have been experimentally demonstrated in the low-gain ... More

Q-Hermite polynomials chaos approximation of likelihood function based on q-Gaussian prior in Bayesian inversionAug 03 2018In real applications, the construction of prior and acceleration of sampling for posterior are usually two key points of Bayesian inversion algorithm for engineers. In this paper, q-analogy of Gaussian distribution, q-Gaussian distribution, is introduced ... More

Hardy Spaces over Half-strip DomainsSep 14 2017We define Hardy spaces $H^p(\Omega_\pm)$ on half-strip domain~$\Omega_+$ and $\Omega_-= \mathbb{C}\setminus\overline{\Omega_+}$, where $0<p<\infty$, and prove that functions in $H^p(\Omega_\pm)$ has non-tangential boundary limit a.e. on $\Gamma$, the ...
