On Isomorphisms of Vertex-transitive GraphsFeb 24 2016Mar 27 2016The isomorphism problem of Cayley graphs has been well studied in the literature, such as characterizations of CI (DCI)-graphs and CI (DCI)-groups. In this paper, we generalize these to vertex-transitive graphs and establish parallel results. Some interesting ... More

Standing Sausage Modes In Nonuniform Magnetic Tubes: An Inversion Scheme For Inferring Flare Loop ParametersSep 04 2015Standing sausage modes in flare loops are important for interpreting quasi-periodic pulsations (QPPs) in solar flare lightcurves. We propose an inversion scheme that consistently uses their periods $P$ and damping times $\tau$ to diagnose flare loop parameters. ... More

A Low-Latency List Successive-Cancellation Decoding Implementation for Polar CodesJun 29 2018Due to their provably capacity-achieving performance, polar codes have attracted a lot of research interest recently. For a good error-correcting performance, list successive-cancellation decoding (LSCD) with large list size is used to decode polar codes. ... More

Jet/accretion and Unification for FSRQs/FRII and BL Lac objects/FRI radio galaxiesApr 22 2015We compiled a sample of 24 flat-spectrum radio quasars (FSRQs), 21 BL Lacs, 13 FRI and 12 FRII radio galaxies to study the jet power and broad-line luminosity relation, and the jet power and black hole mass relation. Furthermore, we obtain the histograms ... More

Quantum state transfer in spin chains via shortcuts to adiabaticityJan 10 2018Based on shortcuts to adiabaticity and quantum Zeno dynamics, we present a protocol to implement quantum state transfer (QST) in a quantum spin-1/2 chain. In the protocol, the complex Hamiltonian of an $N$-site system is simplified, and a simple effective ... More

Dual Supervised LearningJul 03 2017Many supervised learning tasks are emerged in dual forms, e.g., English-to-French translation vs. French-to-English translation, speech recognition vs. text to speech, and image classification vs. image generation. Two dual tasks have intrinsic connections ... More

Spatial Brownian motion in renormalized Poisson potential: A critical caseMar 29 2011Let $B_s$ be a three dimensional Brownian motion and $\omega(dx)$ be an independent Poisson field on $\mathbb{R}^3$. It is proved that for any $t>0$, conditionally on $\omega(\cdot)$, \label{*} \mathbb{E}_0 \exp\{\theta \int_0^t \bar{V}(B_s) ds\} \ < ... More

Large Band Gap Quantum Anomalous Hall Phase in Hexagonal Organometallic FrameworksNov 23 2018The nontrivial band gap plays a critical role in quantum anomalous Hall (QAH) insulators. In this work, we propose that the intrinsic QAH phase with sizable band gaps up to 367 meV is achieved in two-dimensional hexagonal organometallic frameworks (HOMFs). ... More
