Chamber structure for some equivariant relative Gromov-Witten invariants of $\mathbb{P}^1$ in genus $0$May 17 2017In this paper, we study genus $0$ equivariant relative Gromov-Witten invariants of $\mathbb{P}^1$ whose corresponding relative stable maps are totally ramified over one point. For fixed number of marked points, we show that such invariants are piecewise ... More

Rigid Point Registration with Expectation Conditional MaximizationMar 07 2018This paper addresses the issue of matching rigid 3D object points with 2D image points through point registration based on maximum likelihood principle in computer simulated images. Perspective projection is necessary when transforming 3D coordinate into ... More

Continuous Optimization of Adaptive Quadtree StructuresDec 12 2017May 22 2018We present a novel continuous optimization method to the discrete problem of quadtree optimization. The optimization aims at achieving a quadtree structure with the highest mechanical stiffness, where the edges in the quadtree are interpreted as structural ... More

Khovanov-Rozansky homology and Directed CyclesAug 28 2015Mar 29 2017We determine the cycle packing number of a directed graph using elementary projective algebraic geometry. Our idea is rooted in the Khovanov-Rozansky theory. In fact, using the Khovanov-Rozansky homology of a graph, we also obtain algebraic methods of ... More
