Klebsiella pneumoniae-caused liver abscess (KLA) is an emerging infectious disease. However, factors other than K1-specific loci that contribute to the pathogenesis of this disease have not been identified. pLVPK is a 219,385-bp plasmid of K. pneumoniae CG43, an invasive K2 strain associated with KLA. We aimed in this study to evaluate the involvement of(More)
When a piece of information spreads on a complex network, error or distortion can occur. For a high error probability, the phenomenon of information explosion can occur where the number of distinct pieces of information on the network increases continuously with time. We construct a physical model to address this phenomenon. The transition to information(More)
– Traditional quantities used to characterize stochastic resonance possess the common feature of low sensitivity to noise variation in the sense that they vary slowly about the optimal noise level. In potential applications of stochastic resonance such as device development, a high sensitivity to noise may be required. Here we show that, when the resonance(More)
Exploring temporal coherence among light transport paths is very important to remove temporally perception-sensitive artifacts in animation rendering. Using the contribution of a light transport path to all frames in an animation as the sampling distribution function allows us to adapt Markov Chain Monte Carlo (MCMC) algorithms to exploit the temporal and(More)
We reveal the existence of polariton soliton solutions in the array of weakly coupled optical cavities, each containing an ensemble of interacting qubits. An effective, complex Ginzburg-Landau equation is derived in the continuum limit, taking into account the effects of cavity field dissipation and qubit dephasing. We have shown that an enhancement of the(More)
We investigate a class of nonlinear wave equations subject to periodic forcing and noise, and address the issue of energy optimization. Numerically, we use a pseudo-spectral method to solve the nonlinear stochastic partial differential equation and compute the energy of the system as a function of the driving amplitude in the presence of noise. In the(More)
We investigate the transport fluctuations in both non-relativistic quantum dots and graphene quantum dots with both hyperbolic and nonhyperbolic chaotic scattering dynamics in the classical limit. We find that nonhyperbolic dots generate sharper resonances than those in the hyperbolic case. Strikingly, for the graphene dots, the resonances tend to be much(More)
