Associated Production of Neutral Higgs Boson with Squark Pair in the Minimal Supersymmetric Standard Model with Explicit CP Violation at the CERN LHCJan 18 2006Apr 09 2006We investigate the associated production of neutral Higgs boson with squark pair in the minimal supersymmetric standard model with and without explicit CP violation, respectively. We show that the dominant productions in both cases are always ones of ... More

Dynamic Fair Division Problem with General ValuationsFeb 14 2018Apr 18 2018In this paper, we focus on how to dynamically allocate a divisible resource fairly among n players who arrive and depart over time. The players may have general heterogeneous valuations over the resource. It is known that the exact envy-free and proportional ... More

Connection Sensitive Attention U-NET for Accurate Retinal Vessel SegmentationMar 13 2019We develop a connection sensitive attention U-Net(CSAU) for accurate retinal vessel segmentation. This method improves the recent attention U-Net for semantic segmentation with four key improvements: (1) connection sensitive loss that models the structure ... More
