The ability to protect refined metals from reactive environments is vital to many industrial and academic applications. Current solutions, however, typically introduce several negative effects, including increased thickness and changes in the metal physical properties. In this paper, we demonstrate for the first time the ability of graphene films grown by(More)
—Body sensor networks (BSNs) have provided the opportunity to monitor energy expenditure (EE) in daily life and with that information help reduce sedentary behavior and ultimately improve human health. Current approaches for EE estimation using BSNs require tedious annotation of activity types and multiple body sensor nodes during data collection and high(More)
Body sensor network (BSN) applications depend on accurate and precise data from body-worn devices, but issues related to sensor variations, body mounting variations, and node-to-node synchronization can dramatically impact the quality and reliability of collected data and, ultimately, application fidelity. Characterizing and addressing these sources of(More)
In this paper, we consider a delayed diffusive Leslie–Gower predator–prey system with homogeneous Neumann boundary conditions. The stability/instability of the coexistence equilibrium and associated Hopf bifurcation are investigated by analyzing the characteristic equations. Furthermore , using the upper and lower solutions method, we give a sufficient(More)
The distribution of the roots of a second order transcendental polynomial is analyzed, and it is used for solving the purely imaginary eigenvalue of a transcen-dental characteristic equation with two transcendental terms. The results are applied to the stability and associated Hopf bifurcation of a constant equilibrium of a general reaction–diffusion system(More)
The detection of communities in large social networks is receiving increasing attention in a variety of research areas. Most existing community detection approaches focus on the topology of social connections (e.g., coauthor, citation, and social conversation) without considering their topic and dynamic features. In this paper, we propose two models to(More)
In addition to its exotic electronic properties graphene exhibits unusually high intrinsic thermal conductivity. The physics of phonons--the main heat carriers in graphene--has been shown to be substantially different in two-dimensional (2D) crystals, such as graphene, from in three-dimensional (3D) graphite. Here, we report our experimental study of the(More)
In this work we investigate a diffusive Gierer–Meinhardt system with gene expression time delays in the production of activators and inhibitors, and also a saturation in the activator production, which was proposed by Seirin Lee et al. (2010) [10]. We rigorously consider the basic kinetic dynamics of the Gierer–Meinhardt system with saturation. By using an(More)
