The district of southern California is divided into small cubic cells. Each cell is regarded as a vertex of a random graph, when earthquakes with any values of magnitude occur therein. Successive earthquakes define an edge and a loop. Then, the seismic data are analyzed from the viewpoint of an evolving random network. It is found that the distribution of… (More)

To characterize the dynamical features of seismicity as a complex phenomenon, the seismic data are mapped to a growing random graph, which is a small-world scale-free network. Here, hierarchical and mixing properties of such a network are studied. The clustering coefficient is found to exhibit asymptotic power-law decay with respect to connectivity, showing… (More)

Discoveries of the scale-free and small-world features are reported on a network constructed from the seismic data. It is shown that the connectivity distribution decays as a power law, and the value of the degrees of separation, i.e., the characteristic path length or the diameter, between two earthquakes (as the vertices) chosen at random takes a small… (More)

OBJECTIVE
We found previously that the measurement of plasma levels of protein-conjugated acrolein (PC-Acro) together with IL-6 and CRP can be used to identify silent brain infarction (SBI) with high sensitivity and specificity. The aim of this study was to clarify how three biochemical markers are correlated to SBI, carotid atherosclerosis (CA) and white… (More)

— The Internet is a complex system, whose temporal behavior is highly nonstationary and exhibits sudden drastic changes regarded as main shocks or catastrophes. Here, analyzing a set of time series data of round-trip time measured in echo experiment with the Ping Command, the property of " aftershocks " (i.e., catastrophes of smaller scales) after a main… (More)

The cumulative probability distribution of sparseness time interval in the Internet is studied by the method of data analysis. Round-trip time between a local host and a destination host through ten odd routers is measured using the ping command, i.e., doing an echo experiment. The data are found to be well described by q-exponential distributions, which… (More)

We developed a new passive-type micromixer based on the baker's transformation and realized a fast mixing of a protein solution, which has lower diffusion constant. The baker's transformation is an ideal mixing method, but there is no report on the microfluidic baker's transformation (MBT), since it is required to fabricate the complicated three-dimensional… (More)

Discovery of a new law for the three-dimensional spatial distance between the foci of successive earthquakes is reported. Analyzing the seismic data taken between 1984 and 2001 in southern Californian, it is found that the cumulative distribution of the distances follows the modified Zipf-Mandelbrot law, showing complexity of geometry of the events.

We developed a confocal microscopic method for a quantitative evaluation of the mixing performance of a three-dimensional microfluidic mixer. We fabricated a microfluidic baker's transformation (MBT) mixer as a three-dimensional passive-type mixer for the efficient mixing of solutions. Although the MBT mixer is one type of ideal mixers, it is hard to… (More)
