In this paper we discuss the information system requirements of an e-Science scenario, drawn from chemistry research, and describe our approach to a solution which employs notions of adaptive (and adaptable) hypermedia and utilises Semantic Web technologies. 1. Introduction: The Chemical Aether The typical chemist operates in a space that contains a rich… (More)
A necessary and sufficient condition for the maximal entanglement of bipartite nonorthogonal pure states is found. The condition is applied to the maximal en-tanglement of coherent states. Some new classes of maximally entangled coherent states are explicited constructed; their limits give rise to maximally entangled Bell-like states.
Using the eigenvalue definition of binomial states we construct new intermediate number-coherent states which reduce to number and coherent states in two different limits. We reveal the connection of these intermediate states with photon-added coherent states and investigate their non-classical properties and quasi-probability distributions in detail. It is… (More)
We report on one aspect of our research into text-free, speech recognition-free lip synchronization (lip-sync). By lip-sync we mean inputting freely spoken speech and outputting parameters for animating a mouth, which can then be synchronized with the input speech. We first describe a " pitch tracker " that we find helps to expedite the identification of… (More)
Intermediate states interpolating coherent states and Pegg-Barnett phase states are investigated using the ladder operator approach. These states reduce to coherent and Pegg-Barnett phase states in two different limits. Statistical and squeezing properties are studied in detail.
