(There are three occurences.) 3. page 27 (added 10/4/06): In the 2nd and 3rd line, the superscript T − 1 ofâ should be T − 2 in the first terms of the right hand side. 4. page 29 (added 1/9/07): Add " (where h t = (a 0 ,. .. , a t−1) and h t−1 = (a 0 ,. .. , a t−2)) "(More)
In this paper, we present a statistical parametric speech synthesis system based on the polynomial segment model (PSM). As one of the segmental models for speech signals, PSM explicitly describes the trajectory of the features in a speech segment, and keeps the internal dynamics of the segment. In this work, spectral and excitation parameters are modeled by(More)
Efficient solution of the single source shortest path (SSSP) problem on road networks is an important requirement for numerous real-world applications. This paper introduces an algorithm for the SSSP problem using compression method. Owning to precomputing and storing all-pairs shortest path (APSP), the process of solving SSSP problem is a simple lookup of(More)
The central nervous system (CNS) is an immune-privileged organ with the capacity to prevent excessive inflammation. Aside from the blood-brain barrier, active immunosuppressive mechanisms remain largely unknown. We report that a neuron-specific molecule, synaptic adhesion-like molecule 5 (SALM5), is a crucial contributor to CNS immune privilege. We found(More)
