We consider an extension of-entropy to a KL-divergence based complexity measure for randomized density estimation methods. Based on this extension, we develop a general information theoretical inequality that measures the statistical complexity of some deterministic and randomized density estimators. Consequences of the new inequality will be presented. In… (More)
We present a partial Max-SAT solver QMaxSAT which uses CNF encoding of Boolean cardinality constraints. The old version 0.1 was obtained by adapting a CDCL based SAT solver MiniSat to manage cardinality constraints. It was placed first in the industrial subcategory and second in the crafted subcategory of partial Max-SAT category of the 2010 Max-SAT… (More)
A process to immobilize para-methylbenzoyl cellulose (PMBC) on silica gel has been developed and applied to prepare chiral stationary phases (CSPs) for enantioselective chromatography. The immobilization was achieved by simple irradiation of the polysaccharide derivative with ultraviolet light after coating on a silica gel support. The influence of… (More)
A new natural product named trolliamide was isolated from Trollius chinensis Bunge. Its structure was determined as 2-hydroxy-tetracosanoic acid(2,3-dihydroxy-1-hydroxymethyl-heptadec-7-enyl)-amide by spectroscopic methods, including UV, IR, MS and NMR. This is the first report of a ceramide isolated from Trollius chinensis.
