We propose simple schemes that can perfectly identify projective measurement apparatuses secretly chosen from a finite set. Entanglement is used in these schemes both to make possible the perfect identification and to ...
Large discrepancies exist among current classical theories for the in-plane buckling of arches that are subjected to a constant-directed radial load uniformly distributed around the arch axis. Discrepancies also exist ...
This paper presents an input-dependent neural network (IDNN) with variable parameters. The parameters of the neurons in the hidden nodes adapt to changes of the input environment, so that different test input sets separately ...
This paper considers a class of Lur'e descriptor systems (LDS) subject to exogenous disturbances. The concept of input-to-state stability (ISS) is generalized to descriptor systems. Such a notion characterizes the robust ...
An integral tree is a tree whose adjacency matrix has only integer eigenvalues. While most previous work by other authors has been focused either on the very restricted case of balanced trees or on finding trees with ...
The mixture model likelihood function is invariant with respect to permutation of the components of the mixture. If functions of interest are permutation sensitive, as in classification applications, then interpretation ...
Abstract: The use of the likelihood ratio statistic in testing the goodness of fit of the exploratory factor model has no formal justification when, as is often the case in practice, the usual regularity conditions are not ...
In this paper I analyze investors' reactions to changes in the expense ratios of equity mutual funds. I show that investment flows' response to fees cannot be fully explained by looking at investors' performance sensitivity. ...

In this paper we discuss structured [image omitted] control methods for large-scale interconnected systems. Based on a relaxation of Riccati equations, we derive some linear matrix inequality (LMI) conditions for sub-optimal ...
It is shown that two copies are enough to distinguish a complete basis of maximally entangled states in canonical form by constructing an explicit protocol. In particular, in such a protocol, no auxiliary system is needed ...
We show that any two different unitary operations acting on an arbitrary multipartite quantum system can be perfectly distinguished by local operations and classical communication when a finite number of runs is allowed. ...
Background. Perinatal factors, including gestational age and birth weight, influence the development of atopy in early life. However, the role of these factors in the development of asthma in later life among children who ...
