BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES Only few randomized trials or comparative studies with large number of patients have been reported on the outcomes of thoracoscopic and laparoscopic esophagectomy (TLE) with cervical anastomosis and open 3-field esophagectomy (OE) for patients with esophageal cancer. The objective of this study is to compare the safety,(More)
Computer Forensics is a field that all of the digital devices leave digital crime and these crime are valuable evidence in a wide range of inquiries. Timestamps stored on digital media play a crucial role in evidence analysis, but digital timestamps easily be modified. So this paper will collect some data about timestamp or other properties from different(More)
OBJECTIVES To explore the rule of subcarinal lymph node metastasis in thoracic oesophageal cancer and its clinical significance in the radical resection of oesophageal cancer. METHODS We retrospectively analysed 2223 patients with oesophageal cancer who were admitted to Henan Cancer Hospital during 2004-2011 and underwent surgery as the first treatment(More)
The renormalized excitonic method [Hajj et al., Phys Rev B 2005, 72, 224412], in which the excited state of the whole system may be described as a linear combination of local excitations, has been implemented at ab initio level. Its performance is tested on the ionization potential and the energy gap between singlet ground state and lowest triplet for(More)

We perform molecular dynamics simulations of supercritical water (SCW) with a wide range of densities along a near critical isotherm using the simple point charge extended (SPC/E) pair potential in order to study the entropy and the solvation shell structure around a central water molecule. It is shown that both the translational and orientational(More)
Polar and non-polar solutes (acetone and benzene) dissolved in ambient water and supercritical water are investigated theoretically using a sequential quantum mechanics (QM)/molecular mechanics (MM) method which combines classical molecular dynamics simulations and QM/MM calculations. From the detailed analysis of the dependence of the QM region size and(More)
We present a new fragment-based scheme to calculate the excited states of large systems without necessity of a Hartree-Fock (HF) solution of the whole system. This method is based on the implementation of the renormalized excitonic method [M. A. Hajj et al., Phys. Rev. B 72, 224412 (2005)] at ab initio level, which assumes that the excitation of the whole(More)
It is well-known that not only the orbital ordering but also the choice of the orbitals itself as the basis may significantly influence the computational efficiency of density-matrix renormalization group (DMRG) calculations. In this study, for assessing the efficiency of using various natural orbitals (NOs) as the DMRG basis, we performed benchmark DMRG(More)
Direct optical excitation of long-range charge-transfer (CT) states in organic photovoltaics is shown to be feasible, a fact that is ascribed to the very low but non-vanishing oscillator strength of each individual transition and the much higher density of states (DOS) as compared with their short-range counterparts. This finding provides a new framework to(More)
