Chronic neuroinflammation is thought to play an etiological role in Alzheimer's disease (AD), which is characterized pathologically by amyloid and tau formation, as well as neuritic dystrophy and synaptic degeneration. The causal relationship between these pathological events is a topic of ongoing research and discussion. Recent data from transgenic AD(More)
Full-scale, 3D, time-dependent aerodynamics and fluid–structure interaction (FSI) simulations of a Darrieus-type vertical-axis wind turbine (VAWT) are presented. A structural model of the Windspire VAWT (Windspire energy, http://www.windspireenergy.com/) is developed, which makes use of the recently proposed rotation-free Kirchhoff–Love shell and beam/cable(More)
OBJECTIVE The purpose of this study was to investigate whether the expression of AQP-1 on the pleura is altered in a rat model with a tuberculous pleural effusion (TPE) and to study its function. METHODS A TPE model was established by intrapleural inoculation with 0.03 mg (2 ml) standard tuberculosis bacillus (H(37)Rv). The rats with TPE were sacrificed(More)
Because of the contradiction between the spatial and temporal resolution of remote sensing images (RSI) and quality loss in the process of acquisition, it is of great significance to reconstruct RSI in remote sensing applications. Recent studies have demonstrated that reference image-based reconstruction methods have great potential for higher(More)
Kinetic effects resulting from the two-fluid physics play a crucial role in the fast collisionless reconnection, which is a process to explosively release massive energy stored in magnetic fields in space and astrophysical plasmas. In-situ observations in the Earth's magnetosphere provide solid consistence with theoretical models on the point that kinetic(More)
Because the dispersion properties of surface magnetoplasmons (SMPs) in a magnetized plasmonic material closely depend on its cladding dielectric, it is possible to completely trap SMPs in a system consisting of a plasmonic material with cladding of a dielectric heterostructure. By using a semiconductor, our finite element simulation (performed using the(More)
In this paper, we present a basic model of robust one-way electromagnetic modes at microwave frequencies, which is formed by a semi-infinite gyromagnetic yttrium-iron-garnet with dielectric cladding terminated by a metal plate. It is shown that this system supports not only one-way surface magnetoplasmons (SMPs) but also a one-way regular mode, which is(More)
Surface magnetoplasmons (SMPs) in a basic physical model for the terahertz regime, which consists of a semi-infinite magnetized semiconductor with dielectric cladding terminated by a metal slab, are theoretically investigated. The dispersion properties of such SMPs are analyzed and examined in detail. It is shown that SMPs may follow three different kinds(More)
Conventional inpainting methods generally apply textures that are most similar to the areas around the missing region or use large image database. Recently, low rank property of data shows that the non-convex optimization decreases measurements. In this paper, we propose a new image prior, which implies the low rank prior knowledge of image gradients. The(More)
