Bulge formation from SSCs in a responding cuspy dark matter haloFeb 19 2007We simulate the bulge formation in very late-type dwarf galaxies from circumnuclear super star clusters (SSCs) moving in a responding cuspy dark matter halo (DMH). The simulations show that (1) the response of DMH to sinking of SSCs is detectable only ... More

D-wave Charmonium Production in $e^+e^-$ Annihilation at $\sqrt{s}=10.6$ GeVJun 24 2002Sep 18 2002We calculate the D-wave charmonium production in $e^+e^-$ annihilation at BELLE and BABAR at $\sqrt{s}=10.6$ GeV using the nonrelativistic QCD factorization formalism, including color singlet and color octet contributions. We analyze the contributions ... More

Global Weak Solutions to a General Liquid Crystals SystemJan 07 2012May 29 2013We prove the global existence of finite energy weak solutions to the general liquid crystals system. The problem is studied in bounded domain of $R^3$ with Dirichlet boundary conditions and the whole space $R^3$.

Possible formation of high temperature superconductor at early stage of heavy-ion collisionsApr 22 2016We investigate the effect of the inverse magnetic catalysis (IMC) on the charged $\rho$ meson condensation at finite temperature in the framework of the Nambu--Jona-Lasinio model, where mesons are calculated to the leading order of $1/N_c$ expansion by ...

Spin Conductance of Diffusive Graphene Nanoribbons: a Probe of Zigzag Edge MagnetizationMay 29 2013Mar 28 2014We investigate spin transport in diffusive graphene nanoribbons with both clean and rough zigzag edges, and long-range potential fluctuations. The long-range fields along the ribbon edges cause the local doping to come close to the charge neutrality point ... More

Local spin density in two-dimensional electron gas with hexagonal boundaryDec 31 2006Aug 16 2007The intrinsic spin-Hall effect in hexagon-shaped samples is investigated. To take into account the spin-orbit couplings and to fit the hexagon edges, we derive the triangular version of the tight-binding model for the linear Rashba [Sov. Phys. Solid State ... More

Parameter-free $\ell_p$-Box Decoding of LDPC CodesNov 29 2017The Alternating Direction Method of Multipliers (ADMM) decoding of Low Density Parity Check (LDPC) codes has received many attentions due to its excellent performance at the error floor region. In this paper, we develop a parameter-free decoder based ... More

Refractive Index of Light in the Quark-Gluon Plasma with the Hard-Thermal-Loop Perturbation TheorySep 19 2011Dec 20 2011The electric permittivity and magnetic permeability for the quark-gluon plasma (QGP) is calculated within the hard-thermal-loop (HTL) perturbation theory. The refractive indices in the magnetizable and non-magnetizable plasmas are calculated. In a magnetizable ... More

Morphisms from Azumaya prestable curves with a fundamental module to a projective variety: Topological D-strings as a master object for curvesSep 12 2008This is a continuation of our study of the foundations of D-branes from the viewpoint of Grothendieck in the region of the related Wilson's theory-space where "branes" are still branes. In this work, we focus on D-strings and construct the moduli stack ... More

Gravitational resonances on $f(R)$-braneJun 22 2015Apr 14 2016In this paper, we investigate various $f(R)$-brane models and compare their gravitational resonance structures with the corresponding general relativity (GR)-branes. {Starting from some known GR-brane solutions}, we derive thick $f(R)$-brane solutions ...

End-to-End Comparative Attention Networks for Person Re-identificationJun 14 2016Person re-identification across disjoint camera views has been widely applied in video surveillance yet it is still a challenging problem. One of the major challenges lies in the lack of spatial and temporal cues, which makes it difficult to deal with ... More

Protective capping of topological surface states of intrinsically insulating Bi$_2$Te$_3$Jun 22 2015Sep 02 2015We have identified epitaxially grown elemental Te as a capping material that is suited to protect the topological surface states of intrinsically insulating Bi$_2$Te$_3$. By using angle-resolved photoemission, we were able to show that the Te overlayer ... More

Current-induced spin polarization in spin-orbit-coupled two-dimensional electron systemsFeb 04 2008Oct 19 2008Current-induced spin polarization (CISP) is rederived in ballistic spin-orbit-coupled electron systems, based on equilibrium statistical mechanics. A simple and useful picture is correspondingly proposed to help understand the CISP and predict the polarization ... More
