Object tracking under complex circumstances is a challenging task because of background interference, obstacle occlusion, object deformation, etc. Given such conditions, robustly detecting, locating, and analyzing a target through single-feature representation are difficult tasks. Global features, such as color, are widely used in tracking, but may cause(More)
The ever-growing capacity and continuously-dropping price have enabled flash-based MLC SSDs to be widely deployed as large non-volatile cache for storage systems. As MLC SSDs become increasingly denser and larger-capacity, more complex and complicated Error Correction Code (ECC) schemes are required to fight against the decreasing raw reliability associated(More)
—In this article, a novel wideband planar monopole antenna for applications in 2.4 GHz Bluetooth and UWB bands is presented and investigated. The low-profile antenna comprises an approximate rectangle patch for covering the UWB band (3.1 ∼ 10.6 GHz). A lower pass band, 2.4 GHz Bluetooth band (2.4 ∼ 2.484 GHz), can be realized by adding a pair of U-shaped(More)
The luminescence, excited-state absorption, and singlet oxygen generation measurements were performed on three kinds of halogenated corroles: monohydroxyl halogenated corroles (Corrole-F, Corrole-Cl, Corrole-I), peripherally fluorine-substituted corroles (F0, F5, F10, F15), and gallium complexes (F10-Ga, F15-Ga). The fluorescence intensities progressively(More)
Research on Computer-Assisted Language Learning (CALL) has shown that the use of multimedia materials such as images and videos can facilitate interpretation and memorization of new words and phrases by providing richer cues than text alone. We present ViVo, a novel video-augmented dictionary that provides an inexpensive, convenient, and scalable way to(More)
—In order to enable multi-scale urban visualization, multiple model representations at different levels of detail (LoDs) need to be produced (like by generalization) in advance or on the fly. At local scale, building groups are involved and at least medium LoD is needed in terms of visual perception. Motivated by such demands, this article proposes a novel(More)
We propose an effective scheme of shortcuts to adiabaticity for generating a three-dimensional entanglement of two atoms trapped in a cavity using the transitionless quantum driving (TQD) approach. The key point of this approach is to construct an effective Hamiltonian that drives the dynamics of a system along instantaneous eigenstates of a reference(More)
Interatomic interactions and ordering in fcc Ni-rich Ni-Re alloys are studied by means of first-principles methods combined with statistical mechanics simulations based on the Ising Hamiltonian. First-principles calculations are employed to obtain effective chemical and strain-induced interactions, as well as ordering energies and enthalpies of formation of(More)
