Quasinormal modes of Dirac field perturbation in Reissner-Nordström black hole surrounded by quintessenceOct 27 2009Oct 30 2009The dirac quasinormal modes of the Reissner-Nordstr\"om black hole surrounded by quintessence are investigated using the third WKB approximation. We find that the magnitude of the imaginary part of the quasinormal mode frequencies increases firstly and ... More

Assessing the risk of advanced persistent threatsJul 08 2017Dec 28 2017As a new type of cyber attacks, advanced persistent threats (APTs) pose a severe threat to modern society. This paper focuses on the assessment of the risk of APTs. Based on a dynamic model characterizing the time evolution of the state of an organization, ... More

Testing Technicolor Models in Top Quark Pair Production at High Energy Photon CollidersJul 27 1997Nov 29 1997We study pseudo-Goldstone boson corrections to top quark pair production rates in technicolor models with and without topcolor at the E=0.5 teV and 1.5 TeV photon colliders. We find that, for reasonable ranges of the parameters, the corrections are large ... More

Analysis of the effectiveness of the truth-spreading strategy for inhibiting rumorsMay 17 2017Spreading truths is recognized as a feasible strategy for inhibiting rumors. This paper is devoted to assessing the effectiveness of the truth-spreading strategy. An individual-level rumor-truth spreading model (the generic URTU model) is derived. Under ... More

A discount strategy in word-of-mouth marketing and its assessmentApr 23 2017This paper addresses the discount pricing in word-of-mouth (WOM) marketing. A new discount strategy known as the Infection-Based Discount (IBD) strategy is proposed. The basic idea of the IBD strategy lies in that each customer enjoys a discount that ... More

Cosmological Time Crystals From Einstein-Cubic GravitiesJul 04 2018By including appropriate Riemman cubic invariants, we find that the dynamics of classical time crystals can be straightforwardly realized in Einstein gravity on the FLRW metric. The time reflection symmetry is spontaneously broken in the two vacua with ... More

The damage inflicted by a computer virus: A new estimation methodJun 07 2017This paper addressed the issue of estimating the damage caused by a computer virus. First, an individual-level delayed SIR model capturing the spreading process of a digital virus is derived. Second, the damage inflicted by the virus is modeled as the ... More
