In this work, the sign distribution for all inverse elements of general tridiagonal H-matrices is presented. In addition, some computable upper and lower bounds for the entries of the inverses of diagonally dominant tridiagonal matrices are obtained. Based on the sign distribution , these bounds greatly improve some well-known results [25] and so forth. It(More)
The influence of female age on male mating preference and reproductive success has been studied using a promiscuous cabbage beetle, Colaphellus bowringi Baly (Coleoptera: Chrysomelidae). In a simultaneous choice test, middle-aged females had significantly greater mating success than young and old females. In single pair trials, when paired with middle-aged(More)
Thyrassia penangae enters winter diapause as a prepupa in a cocoon. Photoperiodism of diapause induction was systematically investigated in this moth. The photoperiodic response curves under 24-h light-dark cycles showed that this insect is a typical long-day species. The critical daylength was 13h 30min at 25 degrees C, 13h at 30 degrees C and 12h 20min at(More)
Eliminating synchronizations is one of the important techniques related to minimizing communications for modern high performance computing. This paper discusses principles of reducing communications due to global synchroniza-tions in sparse iterative solvers on distributed supercomputers. We demonstrates how to minimizing global synchro-nizations by(More)
