Long-term persistent tracking in ever-changing environments is a challenging task, which often requires addressing difficult object appearance update problems. To solve them, most top-performing methods rely on online learning-based algorithms. Unfortunately, one inherent problem of online learning-based trackers is drift, a gradual adaptation of the… (More)
Brassica carinata is an important oilseed crop with unique favourable traits that are desirable for other Brassica crops. However, given the limited research into genetic resources in B. carinata, knowledge of the genetic structure of this species is relatively poor. Nine homozygous, genetically distinct accessions of B. carinata were obtained via… (More)
Quantitative precipitation estimation (QPE) products from the next-generation National Mosaic and QPE system (Q2) are cross-compared to the operational, radar-only product of the National Weather Service (Stage II) using the gauge-adjusted and manual quality-controlled product (Stage IV) as a reference. The evaluation takes place over the entire… (More)
In this article, reduced graphene oxide (RGO)/carboxymethyl chitosan (CMC) composites (RGO/CMC) were synthesized by a hydrothermal method through in-situ reduction and modification of graphene oxide (GO) in the presence of CMC. An electrochemical sensor for the determination of Cu(II) by differential pulse anodic stripping voltammetry (DPASV) was… (More)
Graphene oxide (GO)/polyvinyl butyral (PVB) nanofibers were prepared by a simple electrospinning technique with PVB as matrix and GO as a functional nanomaterial. GO/PVB nanofibers on glassy carbon electrode (GCE) were reduced through electrochemical method to form reduced graphene oxide (RGO)/PVB nanofibers. The morphology and structure of GO/PVB nanofiber… (More)
A highly efficient and cost-effective method for the preparation of α,β,β-trifluorostyrene (TFS) and its derivatives is described. The method required only 0.2 mol % of Pd(dba)(2) and 0.4 mol % of P(t)Bu(3) and occurred to full conversion within 2.0 h. With this method, a wide range of arylboronic acids were efficiently incorporated to generate… (More)
This paper presents improved bounds for the norms of exceptional finite places of the group K 2 O F , where F is an imaginary quadratic field of class number 2 or 3. As an application we show that K 2 Z[ √ −10] = 1.
The determination of brominated flame retardants is of great importance, but remains a challenge. Particularly, universal and facile approaches are limited. Here we report a new general approach, combining molecular imprinting and electrospinning, for the efficient and facile imprinting sensor of 2,4,6-tribromophenol (TBP), which was used as a " novel "… (More)
