Similarity model for corner roll in turbulent Rayleigh-Benard convectionAug 26 2018Sep 02 2018The corner roll (CR) in the Rayleigh-B\'{e}nard (RB) convection accounts for the behaviors of heat transport and convection flow at the corner. Streamlines of the three-dimensional direct numerical simulations for $10^8<Ra<5\times10^9$ show that CR presents ... More

Decapitation via Digital Epidemics: A Bio-Inspired Transmissive AttackMar 02 2016The evolution of communication technology and the proliferation of electronic devices have rendered adversaries powerful means for targeted attacks via all sorts of accessible resources. In particular, owing to the intrinsic interdependency and ubiquitous ... More

Fe Doped Magnetic Nanodiamonds Made by Ion Implantation as Contrast Agent for MRINov 10 2017We report in this paper a new MRI contrast agent based on magnetic nanodiamonds fabricated by Fe ion implantation. The Fe atoms that are implanted into the nanodiamonds are not in direct contact with the outside world, enabling this new contrast agent ... More

Weighted Network Models Based on Local and Global RulesMay 17 2005We will introduce two evolving models that characterize weighted complex networks. Though the microscopic dynamics are different, these models are found to bear a similar mathematical framework, and hence exhibit some common behaviors, for example, the ... More

Generalized BBV Models for Weighted Complex NetworksMay 17 2005We will introduce two evolving models that characterize weighted complex networks. Though the microscopic dynamics are different, these models are found to bear a similar mathematical framework, and hence exhibit some common behaviors, for example, the ... More

Giant Magnons and Spiky Strings on S^3 with B-fieldSep 18 2008Sep 26 2008We study solutions for a rotating string on S^3 with a background NS-NS B-field and show the existence of spiky string and giant magnon as two limiting solutions. We make a connection to the sine-Gordon model via the Polyakov worldsheet action and study ... More

Charged Kaon multiplicities of Semi-inclusive DIS off the deuteron targetJul 17 2018We investigate the results of the charged kaon multiplicities off the deuteron target from HERMES and COMPASS experiments. The discrepancy of the two data sets cannot be explained by different $Q^2$ values. Furthermore we examine the empirical parametrization ... More

Mixed electroweak-QCD corrections to $e^+e^-\to μ^+μ^- H$ at CEPC with finite-width effectNov 13 2018Nov 22 2018The associated production of Higgs boson with a muon pair, $e^+e^-\to \mu^+\mu^- H$, is one of the golden channels to pin down the properties of the Higgs boson in the prospective Higgs factories exemplified by \textsf{CEPC}. The projected accuracy of ... More

$T$-odd quark pair production and decay at $γγ$ collider in the littlest Higgs model with $T$ parity in next-to-leading order QCDDec 07 2015We calculate the complete next-to-leading order (NLO) QCD corrections to the $T$-odd mirror quark pair ($q_-\bar q_-=u_-\bar u_-$, $c_-\bar c_-$, $d_-\bar d_-$, $s_-\bar s_-$) production in the littlest Higgs model with $T$-parity (LHT) at a high energy ...

Self-Supervised Monocular Image Depth Learning and Confidence EstimationMar 14 2018Convolutional Neural Networks (CNNs) need large amounts of data with ground truth annotation, which is a challenging problem that has limited the development and fast deployment of CNNs for many computer vision tasks. We propose a novel framework for ... More

Semantic Augmented Reality Environment with Material-Aware Physical InteractionsAug 03 2017Mar 16 2018In Augmented Reality (AR) environment, realistic interactions between the virtual and real objects play a crucial role in user experience. Much of recent advances in AR has been largely focused on developing geometry-aware environment, but little has ... More

On the $k$-abelian complexity of the Cantor sequenceMar 12 2017In this paper, we prove that for every integer $k \geq 1$, the $k$-abelian complexity function of the Cantor sequence $\mathbf{c} = 101000101\cdots$ is a $3$-regular sequence.

Nuclear matter fourth-order symmetry energy in non-relativistic mean-field modelsAug 07 2017Nov 07 2017Based on systematic analyses of several popular non-relativistic energy density functionals with mean-field approximation, we estimate the value of the fourth-order symmetry energy $E_{\text{sym,4}}(\rho)$ at nuclear normal density $\rho_0$ and its density ...
