Body size and shape seem to have been sexually selected in a variety of species, including humans, but little is known about what attractive bodies signal about underlying genotypic or phenotypic quality. A widely used indicator of phenotypic quality in evolutionary analyses is degree of symmetry (i.e., fluctuating asymmetry, FA) because it is a marker of(More)
The recalibrational theory of human anger predicts positive correlations between aggressive formidability and anger levels in males, and between physical attractiveness and anger levels in females. We tested these predictions by using a three-dimensional body scanner to collect anthropometric data about male aggressive formidability (measures of upper body(More)
There is accumulating evidence of condition-dependent mate choice in many species, that is, individual preferences varying in strength according to the condition of the chooser. In humans, for example, people with more attractive faces/bodies, and who are higher in sociosexuality, exhibit stronger preferences for attractive traits in opposite-sex(More)
and other quality control mechanisms may not be reflected in this document. Changes may have been made to this work since it was submitted for publication. Abstract: 3D conceptual design is a creative process. While the designers are in the inspirational mode, they want to quickly express the design ideas in 3D and visualize it in real time without(More)
Peking Opera as a branch of Chinese traditional cultures and arts has a very distinct colourful facial make-up for all actors in the stage performance. Such make-up is stylised in nonverbal symbolic semantics which all combined together to form the painted faces to describe and symbolise the background, the characteristic and the emotional status of(More)
The interaction method of current CAD systems has become one of the impediments of rapid 3D conceptual design. Because (1) the keyboard/mouse based interface limits the user to create 3D objects on a 2D plane; (2) current CAD systems are too complex for conceptual design and require users to be professionally trained. In this paper, we present an innovative(More)
Virtual human crowd models have been used in the simulation of building and urban evacuation, but have not yet applied to underground coal mine operations and escape situations with emphasis on smoke, fires and physiological behaviors. We explore this through a real-time simulation model, MIMOSA (Mine Interior Model Of Smoke and Action), which integrates an(More)
This article describes a novel modeling method for a rigid-flexible coupled planetary gear transmission system, which consists of rigid and elastic ring gear subsystems. The rigid gear subsystem model was established using the lumped parameter method while the elastic ring gear subsystem was established using the finite element method. According to the(More)
Ancestrally, relatively attractive individuals and relatively formidable males may have had reduced incentives to be egalitarian (i.e., to act in accordance with norms promoting social equality). If selection calibrated one's egalitarianism to one's attractiveness/formidability, then such people may exhibit reduced egalitarianism ("observed egalitarianism")(More)
