A binary level set model and some applications to Mumford-Shah image segmentation
In this paper, we propose a PDE-based level set method. Traditionally, interfaces are represented by the zero level set of continuous level set functions. Instead, we let the interfaces be represented by discontinuities ...
The PBD-closure of constant-composition codes
We show an interesting pairwise balanced design (PBD)-closure result for the set of lengths of constant-composition codes whose distance and size meet certain conditions. A consequence of this PBD-closure result is that ...
Constructions for q-ary constant-weight codes
This paper introduces a new combinatorial construction for q-ary constant-weight codes which yields several families of optimal codes and asymptotically optimal codes. The construction reveals intimate connection between ...
Investigation of phase-separated electronic states in 1.5 µm GaInNAs/GaAs heterostructures by optical spectroscopy
We report on the comparative electronic state characteristics of particular GalnNAs/GaAs quantum well structures that emit near 1.3 and 1.5 μm wavelength at room temperature. While the electronic structure of the 1.3 μm ...
An improvement for the large sieve for square moduli
We establish a result on the large sieve with square moduli. These bounds improve recent results by S. Baier [S. Baier, On the large sieve with sparse sets of moduli, J. Ramanujan Math. Soc. 21 (2006) 279–295] and L. Zhao ...
On primes in quadratic progressions
We verify the Hardy-Littlewood conjecture on primes in quadratic progressions on average. The results in the present paper significantly improve those of a previous paper of the authors.
The construction of a supramolecular polymeric rotaxane from bipyridine-ruthenium and cyclodextrin
A luminescent supramolecular link is constructed by a very simple method using bipyridine-ruthenium and cyclodextrin, which displays not only a quasi-linear structure, but also a satisfactory fluorescence emission in both ...
Variational study of polaron dynamics with the Davydov Ansätze
We derive explicit expressions for the amplitudes of the deviation vectors for the time-dependent Davydov D1, D2 and D ̃ Ansätze from the exact solution of the Schro ̈dinger equation for the Holstein polaron. ...
Robustness of the single dressing fraction characterization of polaron structure in multi-mode partial dressing theory
In approaches to polaron theory which attempt to unify small and large polaron behavior, the notion of “partial dressing” plays a central role in determining the allocation of interaction energy between correlations of the ...
Functionally rigid and degenerate molecular shuttles
The preparation and dynamic behavior of two functionally rigid and degenerate rotaxanes (1⋅4 PF6 and 2⋅4 PF6) in which a π-electron deficient tetracationic cyclophane, cyclobis(paraquat-p-phenylene) (CBPQT4+) ring, ...
