Modifications to holographic entanglement entropy in warped CFT

In [1] it was observed that asymptotic boundary conditions play an important role in the study of holographic entanglement beyond AdS/CFT. In particular, the Ryu-Takayanagi proposal must be modified for warped AdS3 (WAdS3) with Dirichlet boundary conditions. In this paper, we consider AdS3 and WAdS3 with Dirichlet-Neumann boundary conditions. The conjectured holographic duals are ...

Pre-computed Region Guardian Sets Based Reverse kNN Queries

Given a set of objects and a query q, a point p is q’s Reverse k Nearest Neighbour (RkNN) if q is one of p’s k-closest objects. RkNN queries have received significant research attention in the past few years. However, we realize that the state-of-the-art algorithm, SLICE, accesses many objects that do not contribute to its RkNN results when running the filtering phase, which ...

Clinical and prognostic analysis of 78 patients with human immuno-deficiency virus associated non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma in Chinese population

Background Human Immuno-deficiency Virus (HIV) associated non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma (NHL) was a special group of disease, which manifests distinct clinical features and prognosis as compared with NHLs in patients without HIV. We performed this study to describe the clinical features of the disease and investigated the potential prognostic factors. Methods HIV-infected patients who ...

A cloud-based monitoring system via face recognition using Gabor and CS-LBP features

Face detection and recognition is an important topic in security. Currently, ubiquitous monitoring has received a large amount of attention. This paper proposes a cloud-based ubiquitous monitoring system via face recognition. It consists of a monitoring client module for face detection and recognition and a cloud storage module for data visualization. In the monitoring client ...

Endogenous neurogenesis in adult mammals after spinal cord injury

During the whole life cycle of mammals, new neurons are constantly regenerated in the subgranular zone of the dentate gyrus and in the subventricular zone of the lateral ventricles. Thanks to emerging methodologies, great progress has been made in the characterization of spinal cord endogenous neural stem cells (ependymal cells) and identification of their role in adult spinal cord ...

Glymphatic distribution of CSF-derived apoE into brain is isoform specific and suppressed during sleep deprivation

Background Apolipoprotein E (apoE) is a major carrier of cholesterol and essential for synaptic plasticity. In brain, it’s expressed by many cells but highly expressed by the choroid plexus and the predominant apolipoprotein in cerebrospinal fluid (CSF). The role of apoE in the CSF is unclear. Recently, the glymphatic system was described as a clearance system whereby CSF and ISF ...

Stability for iterative roots of piecewise monotonic functions

Global C 0 and local C 1 stability of iterative roots for monotonic functions defined on a compact interval, as well as global C 1 instability under some assumptions, are well-known facts. In this paper, we investigate the stability of iterative roots for piecewise monotonic functions with nonmonotonicity height equal to 1. We prove the roots are C 1 locally stable and C 0 global ...

Clinical significance of mitofusin-2 and its signaling pathways in hepatocellular carcinoma

Background The mitochondrial GTPase mitofusin-2 (MFN2) gene encodes a mitochondrial membrane protein that can induce apoptosis of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) via the mitochondrial apoptotic pathway, as validated in our previous research. However, little is known of the clinical significance of MFN2 expression and its signaling pathways in HCC. Methods MFN2 mRNA expression in ...

The enhanced recovery after surgery (ERAS) program in liver surgery: a meta-analysis of randomized controlled trials

The enhanced recovery after surgery (ERAS) program aims to attenuate the surgical stress response and decrease postoperative complications. It has increasingly replaced conventional approaches in surgical care. To evaluate the benefits and harms of the ERAS program compared to conventional care in patients undergoing liver surgery. We searched the MEDLINE, PubMed, EMBASE and ...

Transcriptome Sequencing, De Novo Assembly and Differential Gene Expression Analysis of the Early Development of Acipenser baeri

The molecular mechanisms that drive the development of the endangered fossil fish species Acipenser baeri are difficult to study due to the lack of genomic data. Recent advances in sequencing technologies and the reducing cost of sequencing offer exclusive opportunities for exploring important molecular mechanisms underlying specific biological processes. This manuscript describes ...

An axial gauge ansatz for higher spin theories

We present an ansatz which makes the equations of motion more tractable for the simplest of Vasiliev’s four-dimensional higher spin theories. The ansatz is similar to axial gauge in electromagnetism. We present a broad class of solutions in the gauge where the spatial connection vanishes, and we discuss the lift of one of these solutions to a full spacetime solution via a gauge ...

An Investigation on Formaldehyde Emission Characteristics of Wood Building Materials in Chinese Standard Tests: Product Emission Levels, Measurement Uncertainties, and Data Correlations between Various Tests

As a large producer and consumer of wood building materials, China suffers product formaldehyde emissions (PFE) but lacks systematic investigations and basic data on Chinese standard emission tests (CST), so this paper presented a first effort on this issue. The PFE of fiberboards, particleboards, blockboards, floorings, and parquets manufactured in Beijing region were ...

Pancreatic cancer cell-derived IGFBP-3 contributes to muscle wasting

Background Progressive loss of skeletal muscle, termed muscle wasting, is a hallmark of cancer cachexia and contributes to weakness, reduced quality of life, as well as poor response to therapy. Previous studies have indicated that systemic host inflammatory response regarding tumor development results in muscle wasting. However, how tumor directly regulates muscle wasting via ...
