$4\times4$ unextendible product basis and genuinely entangled spaceJan 18 2019We show that there are six inequivalent $4\times4$ unextendible product bases (UPBs) of size eight, when we consider only 4-qubit product vectors. We apply our results to construct Positive-Partial-Transpose entangled states of rank nine. They are at ... More

Wireless Powered Dense Cellular Networks: How Many Small Cells Do We Need?Apr 02 2017Apr 04 2017This paper focuses on wireless powered 5G dense cellular networks, where base station (BS) delivers energy to user equipment (UE) via the microwave radiation in sub-6 GHz or millimeter wave (mmWave) frequency, and UE uses the harvested energy for uplink ...

Efficient Private ERM for Smooth ObjectivesMar 29 2017May 24 2017In this paper, we consider efficient differentially private empirical risk minimization from the viewpoint of optimization algorithms. For strongly convex and smooth objectives, we prove that gradient descent with output perturbation not only achieves ... More

Comprehensive Constraints on a Spin-3/2 Singlet Particle as a Dark Matter CandidateFeb 17 2013We consider the proposal that dark matter (DM) is composed of a spin-3/2 particle that is a singlet of the standard model (SM). Its leading effective interactions with ordinary matter involve a pair of their fields and a pair of SM fermions, in the form ... More
