Clustering, or transitivity, a behavior observed in real-world networks, affects network structure and function. This property has been studied extensively, but most of this research has been limited to clustering in single networks. The effect of clustering on the robustness of coupled networks, on the other hand, has received much less attention. Only the(More)
The delivery of therapeutic compounds to target tissues is a central challenge in treating disease. Externally controlled drug release systems hold potential to selectively enhance localized delivery. Here we describe liposomes doped with porphyrin-phospholipid that are permeabilized directly by near-infrared light. Molecular dynamics simulations identified(More)
In semi-coherent interface, a superposed network of interface dislocations accommodates the attendant coherency strains in the adjacent crystals and their intersections (referred to as nodes) can act as sinks and sources for point defects because of the low formation energy. Nodes in {111} semi-coherent interfaces are characterized with a spiral pattern(More)
The robustness of complex networks against node failure and malicious attack has been of interest for decades, while most of the research has focused on random attack or hub-targeted attack. In many real-world scenarios, however, attacks are neither random nor hub-targeted, but localized, where a group of neighboring nodes in a network are attacked and(More)
The small size of ultra-small nanoparticles makes them suitable for lymphatic delivery, and many recent studies have examined their role in anti-metastasis therapy. However, the anti-metastatic efficacy of small-sized nanocarriers loaded with taxanes such as docetaxel has not yet been investigated in malignant breast cancer. We encapsulated docetaxel using(More)
In 1998, Lin presented a conjecture on a class of ternary sequences with ideal 2-level autocor-relation in his Ph.D thesis. Those sequences have a very simple structure, i.e., their trace representation has two trace monomial terms. In this paper, we present a proof for the conjecture. The mathematical tools employed are the second-order multiplexing(More)
Gene expression programming (GEP) is a functional genotype/phenotype system. The separation scheme increases the efficiency and reliability of GEP. However, the computational cost increases considerably with the expansion of the scale of problems. In this paper, we introduce a GPU-accelerated hybrid variant of GEP named pGEP (parallel GEP). In order to find(More)
For any bent function, it is very interesting to determine its dual function because the dual function is also bent in certain cases. For k odd and gcd(n, k) = 1, it is known that the Coulter-Matthews bent function f (x) = T r(ax 3 k +1 2) is weakly regular bent over F3n , where a ∈ F * 3 n , and T r(·) : F3n → F3 is the trace function. In this paper, we(More)
