BACKGROUND A recent study indicates that the incidence of smoking cessation varies with age. Although nicotine dependence (ND) has been regarded as one of the most significant barriers of successful smoking cessation, few researches have focused on the relationship between nicotine dependence and age. METHODS A cross-sectional study (conducted in 2013)(More)
Feature-based methods for image registration frequently encounter the correspondence problem. In this paper, we formulate feature-based image registration as a manifold alignment problem, and present a novel matching method for finding the correspondences among different images containing the same object. Different from the semi-supervised manifold(More)
The association between psychological factors and smoking cessation is complicated and inconsistent in published researches, and the joint effect of psychological factors on smoking cessation is unclear. This study explored how psychological factors jointly affect the success of smoking cessation using a Bayesian network approach. A community-based case(More)
In this paper, we investigate the high frequency performance of Co90Zr10/SiO2/Co90Zr10 trilayers. It is demonstrated that the in-plane isotropic microwave performance is theoretically derived from the solution of the Landau-Lifshitz-Gilbert equation and experimentally achieved in that sandwich structured film. The valuable isotropic behavior comes from the(More)
Super-resolution from a single image plays an important role in many areas. However, it is still a challenging work, especially in the high-resolution image’s quality and the algorithm’s efficiency. To obtain high-resolution images, a new single image super-resolution technique that extends existing learning-based super-resolution frameworks is presented in(More)
Published articles reported controversial results about the association of 5-HTTLPR polymorphism with the risk of smoking behaviors. A meta-analysis was performed to assess the association between 5-HTTLPR polymorphism and smoking behaviors. A comprehensive search was conducted to identify studies (from January, 1990 to December, 2014) of the aforementioned(More)
