A common but often less tested explanation for the successful invasion of alien species is that invasive alien species outcompete their co-occurring natives, which may not always be the case. In this study, we established artificial environmental gradients in a series of pot experiments with controlled environments to investigate the effects of salinity,(More)
We have created a new benchmarking dataset for testing non-rigid 3D shape retrieval algorithms, one that is much more challenging than existing datasets. Our dataset features exclusively human models, in a variety of body shapes and poses. 3D models of humans are commonly used within computer graphics and vision, and so the ability to distinguish between(More)

1Bx14 is a member of the high molecular weight (HMW) glutenin subunits specified by wheat Glu-B1-1 alleles. In this work, we found that the full-length amino acid sequence of 1Bx14 derived from cloned coding region was similar, but not identical, to that of 1Bx20. In the N-terminal domains of 1Bx14 and 1Bx20, the last two of the three cysteine residues,(More)
This paper is a selective review of the regularization methods scattered in statistics literature. We introduce a general conceptual approach to regularization and fit most existing methods into it. We have tried to focus on the importance of regularization when dealing with today’s high-dimensional objects: data and models. A wide range of examples are(More)
In the present work various free amino acids, including tryptophan and tyrosine, were effectively N-phthaloylated under reduced pressure and at lower temperature. Moreover, under these conditions, the presence of phthalic acid in phthalic anhydride did not hinder the N-phthaloylation of amino acids. This simple process is economic, environmentally friendly,(More)

Selfish overlay networks consist of autonomous nodes that develop their own strategies by optimizing towards their local objectives and self-interests, rather than following prescribed protocols. It is thus important to regulate the behavior of selfish nodes, so that system-wide properties are optimized. In this paper, we investigate the problem of(More)
Rate-control plays an important role in video coding. However, in the conventional rate-control algorithms, the number and position of Macroblocks (MBs) inside one basic unit for rate-control is inflexible and predetermined. The different characteristics of the MBs are not fully considered. Also, there is no overall optimization of the coding of basic(More)
The objective of this track is to evaluate the performance of 3D shape retrieval approaches on a large-sale comprehensive 3D shape database that contains different types of models, such as generic, articulated, CAD and architecture models. The track is based on a new comprehensive 3D shape benchmark, which contains 8,987 triangle meshes that are classified(More)
