—Achieving balance between convergence and diversity is a key issue in evolutionary multiobjective optimization. Most existing methodologies, which have demonstrated their niche on various practical problems involving two and three objectives, face significant challenges in many-objective optimization. This paper suggests a unified paradigm, which combines(More)
In the asymptotic theory of quantum hypothesis testing, the error probability of the first kind jumps sharply from zero to one when the error exponent of the second kind passes by the point of the relative entropy of the two states, in an increasing way. This is well known as the direct part and strong converse of quantum Stein's lemma. Here we look into(More)
—Multiobjective evolutionary algorithm based on decomposition (MOEA/D) decomposes a multiobjective optimization problem into a set of scalar optimization subproblems and optimizes them in a collaborative manner. Subproblems and solutions are two sets of agents that naturally exist in MOEA/D. The selection of promising solutions for subproblems can be(More)
Existing methods for pixel-wise labelling tasks generally disregard the underlying structure of labellings, often leading to predictions that are visually implausible. While incorporating structure into the model should improve prediction quality, doing so is challenging - manually specifying the form of structural constraints may be impractical and(More)
PURPOSE To reduce radiation dose in CT imaging, the statistical model based iterative reconstruction (MBIR) method has been introduced for clinical use. Based on the principle of MBIR and its nonlinear nature, the noise performance of MBIR is expected to be different from that of the well-understood filtered backprojection (FBP) reconstruction method. The(More)
Recombinant DNA technologies enable the direct isolation and expression of novel genes from biotopes containing complex consortia of uncultured microorganisms. In this study, genomic libraries were constructed from microbial DNA isolated from insect intestinal tracts from the orders Isoptera (termites) and Lepidoptera (moths). Using a targeted functional(More)
Chemical exchange saturation transfer (CEST) provides a new imaging contrast mechanism sensitive to labile proton exchange. Pulsed-CEST imaging is better suited to the hardware constraints on clinical imaging systems when compared with traditional continuous wave-CEST imaging methods. However, designing optimum pulsed-CEST imaging sequences entails(More)
To characterize the dynamics of Cd²⁺ flux in the rhizosphere and to study cadmium (Cd) plant-internal partitioning in roots, wood, bark and leaves in relation to energy metabolism, reactive oxygen species (ROS) formation and antioxidants, Populus × canescens plantlets were exposed to either 0 or 50 µM CdSO₄ for up to 20 days in the nutrient solution. A(More)
Using the technology of wireless energy transfer, the paper proposes Qi-ferry which physically carries energy, roves a wireless sensor network, and wirelessly charges sensor nodes to extend their lifetime. To optimize the usage of the entire energy reserve on a Qi-ferry, both the movement of the Qi-ferry itself and its wireless charging of sensor nodes(More)
