Observation of huge thermal spin currents in magnetic multilayersMar 18 2015Thermal spin pumping constitutes a novel mechanism for generation of spin currents; however their weak intensity constitutes a major roadblock for its usefulness. We report a phenomenon that produces a huge spin current in the central region of a multilayer ... More

Common origin of the pseudogap in electron-doped and hole-doped cuprates governed by Mott physicsJan 12 2018The pseudogap phenomena have been a long-standing mystery of the cuprate high-temperature superconductors. Unlike the pseudogap in hole-doped cuprates, however, the pseudogap in the electron-doped counterpart has been attributed to band folding due to ... More

Neutron Electric Dipole Moment in the Gauge-Higgs UnificationMay 07 2009May 25 2009We study the neutron electric dipole moment (EDM) in a five dimensional SU(3) gauge-Higgs unification compactified on M^4 \times S^1/Z_2 space-time including a massive fermion. We point out that to realize the CP violation is a non-trivial task in the ... More

A Comparison of Approaches for Solving Hard Graph-Theoretic ProblemsApr 29 2015Dec 17 2015In order to formulate mathematical conjectures likely to be true, a number of base cases must be determined. However, many combinatorial problems are NP-hard and the computational complexity makes this research approach difficult using a standard brute ... More

Variable is Better Than Invariable: Stable Sparse VSS-NLMS Algorithms with Application to Estimating MIMO ChannelsNov 06 2013To estimate multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) channels, invariable step-size normalized least mean square (ISSNLMS) algorithm was applied to adaptive channel estimation (ACE). Since the MIMO channel is often described by sparse channel model due to ... More

Theoretical Description of Nearly Discontinuous Transition in Superconductors with Paramagnetic DepairingMar 26 2003Sep 30 2003Based on a theoretical argument and Monte Carlo simulations of a Ginzburg-Landau model derived microscopically, it is argued that, in type-II superconductors where {\it both} the paramagnetic {\it and} orbital depairings are important, a strong first-order ...

Adaptive Sparse Channel Estimation for Time-Variant MIMO-OFDM SystemsFeb 06 2013Accurate channel state information (CSI) is required for coherent detection in time-variant multiple-input multipleoutput (MIMO) communication systems using orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM) modulation. One of low-complexity and stable ... More

Classification of two-term tilting complexes over Brauer graph algebrasApr 19 2015Apr 18 2016Using only the combinatorics of its defining ribbon graph, we classify the two-term tilting complexes, as well as their indecomposable summands, of a Brauer graph algebra. As an application, we determine precisely the class of Brauer graph algebras which ... More

Divergence-free WKB methodNov 22 2000A new semiclassical approach to linear (L) and nonlinear (NL) one-dimensional Schr\"odinger equation (SE) is presented. Unlike the usual WKB solution, our solution does not diverge at the classical turning point. For LSE, our zeroth-order solution, when ... More
