Forest thinning is expected to affect tree water use and carbon assimilation, but the related influence from climate variability is little known. Recent forest thinning in the Wungong catchment coincided with a record dry year following the thinning, which provides a rare opportunity to understand the climate influence on the thinning effect.

—In this paper, we consider a molecular diffusion based communications link that can reliably transport data over-the-air. We show that the system can also reliably transport data across confined structural environments, especially in cases where conventional electromagnetic (EM) wave based systems may fail. In particular, this paper compares the(More)
Molecular communications between mobile nano-robots will likely yield bit transposition errors. In such a scenario, it is important to design and test a new family of appropriate forward-error-correction codes. In this paper, we first construct a proof-of-concept robot to demonstrate how transposition errors arise. We then review state-of-the-art research(More)
A power control algorithm based on non-cooperative game for wireless sensor networks is presented to regulate the appropriate transmit power and satisfy the maximum requirement of network utility. In these networks, the appropriate transmission power is selected to improve the network topology, reduce the collisions, increase good put and confirm the(More)
—In this paper, we consider a molecular diffusion based communications link that conveys information on the macro-scale (several metres). The motivation is to apply molecular-based communications to challenging electromagnetic environments. We first derive a novel capture probability expression of a finite sized receiver. The paper then introduces the(More)
This paper presents an approach for visual tracking, consisting of two combination modules, which are global detector and local image patch matching. The former gives the classification response for each object candidate specified by the sliding window in the searching region. The classification can be performed by any global detector, which is based on the(More)

Multi Agent Systems has become the focus of artificial intelligence in recent years. This paper constructs an intelligent course scheduling system based on multi agents. This system give different preference to different factors base on the accounting of constraints such as individual requirements of teachers, the classroom, class, curriculum, times est.(More)
This paper describes the design and implementation of a synthesizable, flexible, alternative current-plasma display panel (AC-PDP) signal processor (APSP) as an intellectual property (IP) core for system-on-a-chip (SoC) application. The APSP adopts the Improved Address and Display Separation (ADS) method we proposed to overcome the dynamic false contour(More)
