We say that a function F (τ) obeys WDVV equations, if for a given invertible symmetric matrix η αβ and all τ ∈ T ⊂ R n , the expressions c α β γ (τ) = η αλ c λβγ (τ) = η αλ ∂ λ ∂ β ∂ γ F can be considered as structure constants of commutative associative algebra; the matrix η αβ inverse to η αβ determines an invariant scalar product on this algebra.

Signalling networks that control the life or death of a cell are of central interest in modern biology. While the defined roles of the c-Jun N-terminal kinase (JNK) pathway in regulating cell death have been well-established, additional factors that modulate JNK-mediated cell death have yet to be fully elucidated. To identify novel regulators of(More)
We present a technique that simulates wet garments for virtual humans with realistic folds and wrinkles. Our approach combines three new models to allow realistic simulation of wet garments: (1) a simplified saturation model that modifies the masses, (2) a nonlinear friction model derived from previously reported, real-world measurements, and (3) a wrinkle(More)
Interleukin-1 receptor-associated kinases (IRAKs) are crucial mediators of the IL-1R/TLR signaling pathways that regulate the immune and inflammation response in mammals. Recent studies also suggest a critical role of IRAKs in tumor development, though the underlying mechanism remains elusive. Pelle is the sole Drosophila IRAK homolog implicated in the(More)
In the massive multiuser multiple-input multiple-output (MU-MIMO) downlink, traditional centralized beamforming (or precoding), such as zero-forcing (ZF), entails excessive complexity for the computing hardware, and generates raw base-band data rates that cannot be supported with current interconnect technology and chip I/O interfaces. In this paper, we(More)
The amyloid precursor like protein-1 (APLP1) belongs to the amyloid precursor protein family that also includes the amyloid precursor protein (APP) and the amyloid precursor like protein-2 (APLP2). Though the three proteins share similar structures and undergo the same cleavage processing by α-, β- and γ-secretases, APLP1 shows divergent subcellular(More)
—Conventional centralized data detection algorithms for massive multiuser multiple-input multiple-output (MU-MIMO) systems, such as minimum mean square error (MMSE) equalization, result in excessively high raw baseband data rates and computing complexity at the centralized processing unit. Hence, practical base-station (BS) designs for massive MU-MIMO that(More)
In this paper I give an explicit conformal field theory description of (2+1)-dimensional BTZ black hole entropy. In the boundary Liouville field theory I investigate the reducible Verma modules in the elliptic sector, which correspond to certain irreducible representations of the quantum algebra U q (sl 2) ⊙ U ˆ q (sl 2). I show that there are states that(More)
The Wnt/β-catenin signaling is an evolutionarily conserved pathway that regulates a wide range of physiological functions, including embryogenesis, organ maintenance, cell proliferation and cell fate decision. Dysregulation of Wnt/β-catenin signaling has been implicated in various cancers, but its role in cell death has not yet been fully elucidated. Here(More)
