In this paper, we discuss the problem of determining whether a quantum system is in a pure state, or in a mixed state. We apply two strategies to settle this problem: the unambiguous discrimination and the maximum confidence ...

A disjoint track matching algorithm is proposed based on major color spectrum histogram representation (MCSHR) matching and post-matching integration algorithms; this algorithm is useful for reconnecting broken tracks due ...
We study the distinguishability of multipartite quantum states by separable operations. We first present a necessary and sufficient condition for a finite set of orthogonal quantum states to be distinguishable by separable ...
When a shallow arch is subjected to an in-plane load that is applied suddenly, the arch will oscillate about an equilibrium position due to the kinetic energy imparted to the arch by the sudden load. If the suddenly applied ...
Torsional finite elements for direct, geared, branched and grounded connections are presented. For a simple three-degrees-of-freedom powertrain model the finite elements are defined and the global system assembly is detailed. ...
Grinding is one of the most versatile methods of removing material from machine parts to provide precise geometry. Dynamic analysis of the grinding process is necessary to reduce the surface waviness and roughness induced ...
Nano- and microparticles composed of saccharide and lipid systems are extensively investigated for applications as highly biocompatible drug carriers. A detailed understanding of particle-solvent interactions is of key ...
Development of nano- and submicron-structured materials has attracted significant research interest in the last ten years [1, 2]. Most recently, an innovative technology called the Equal Channel Angular Extrusion (ECAE) ...

This paper describes an educational analysis of a first year physics experiment on standing waves for engineering students. The educational analysis is based on the ACELL (Advancing Chemistry by Enhancing Learning in the ...
Objective The aim of this pilot study was to evaluate the feasibility of a brief educational intervention administered two weeks after Automatic Implantable Cardioverter Defibrillator (AICD) implantation on subsequent ...
When nanorods of Au, Ag and some other elements are aligned with a preferred orientation with respect to light, their optical extinction characteristics become dependent on the polarization and angle of incidence of the ...
Textured silicon surfaces are widely used in manufacturing of solar cells due to increasing the light absorption probability and also the antireflection properties. However, these Si surfaces have a high density of surface ...
ABSTRACT The uniaxial stress dependence of the band structure and the exciton-polariton transitions in wurtzite ZnO is thoroughly studied using modern first-principles calculations based on the HSE+G0W0 approach, k p ...
We prove that sufficiently many copies of a bipartite entangled pure state can always be transformed into some copies of another one with certainty by local quantum operations and classical communication. The efficiency ...
Electron beam induced deposition (EBID) and etching (EBIE) are promising methods for the fabrication of three-dimensional nanodevices, wiring of nanostructures, and repair of photolithographic masks. Here, we study ...
Atomic and Molecular Physics Laboratories, Research School of Physical Sciences and Engineering, The Australian National University, Canberra ACT 0200, Australia. The energy-momentum resolved valence band structure of ...
We employed electron momentum spectroscopy (EMS) to measure the bulk electronic structure of calcium oxide. We extracted the electron momentum density (EMD), density of occupied states (DOS), band dispersions, bandwidths ...
