As part of a long-term sloped land use experiment established in 1995 at Taoyuan Agro-ecosystem Research Station (111°26′ E, 28°55′ N) in China, soil samples were collected from three land use types, including cropland (CL), natural forest, and tea plantation. Quantitative polymerase chain reaction and terminal restriction fragment length polymorphism were… (More)
In this paper, we propose two algorithms for verifying the existence of real solutions of positive-dimensional polynomial systems. The first one is based on the critical point method and the homotopy continuation method. It targets for verifying the existence of real roots on each connected component of an algebraic variety <b>V</b> ∩… (More)
Fabric selection plays an important role in fashion garment design. Designers often use both physical and normalized linguistic criteria for fabric selection. Perception and preference of consumers in their specific socio-cultural context, expressed by fashion themes or emotional linguistic criteria, affect greatly new fashion product design. Modeling the… (More)
This paper studies a queueing model with the finite buffer of capacity K in wireless cellular networks, which has two types of arriving calls—handoff and originating calls, both of which follow the Markov arriving process with different rates. The channel holding times of the two types of calls follow different phase-type distributions. Firstly, the joint… (More)
Massively parallel sequencing (MPS) combined with bioinformatic analysis has been widely applied to detect fetal chromosomal aneuploidies such as trisomy 21, 18, 13 and sex chromosome aneuploidies (SCAs) by sequencing cell-free fetal DNA (cffDNA) from maternal plasma, so-called non-invasive prenatal testing (NIPT). However, many technical challenges, such… (More)
A novel and practical asymmetric synthesis of dapoxetine hydrochloride by using the chiral auxiliary (S)-tert-butanesulfinamide was explored. The synthesis was concise, mild, and easy to perform. The overall yield and stereoselectivity were excellent.
