System Dynamics Modeling of Chinese Urban Housing Markets for Pedagogical and Policy Analysis Purposes

This paper reports on the current state of a project to develop a system dynamics (SD) model for urban housing markets in China, aimed at facilitating policy analysis and supporting practical educational tools that might reach large numbers of potential entrepreneurs in China. Although numerous academic papers have applied SD models to real estate markets over the past generation...

Thinning of antenna array via adaptive memetic particle swarm optimization

Massive multiple input multiple output antenna array is crucial for the fifth generation wireless communication. Proper antenna array design can reduce interference among different signals and generate desirable beamforming. Sparse antenna array is able to form narrower beam with lower sidelobe than equally spaced antenna array given the same number of array elements. However...

Constraints on inflation revisited: an analysis including the latest local measurement of the Hubble constant

We revisit the constraints on inflation models by using the current cosmological observations involving the latest local measurement of the Hubble constant (\(H_{0} = 73.00\pm 1.75\) km s \(^{-1}\) Mpc\(^{-1}\)). We constrain the primordial power spectra of both scalar and tensor perturbations with the observational data including the Planck 2015 CMB full data, the BICEP2 and...

Radio and Clutter Suppression Algorithm Based on Spatial Multiple Beams for Small-Aperture HFSWR

Radio and clutter that cover a certain number of range-Doppler-angle cells have a major impact on the detection performance of a high-frequency surface wave radar (HFSWR) system. Especially for a small-aperture array, the angle spectrums of radio and clutter suffer from severe broadening, so the targets that are more easily submerged in the broadened radio and clutter can be...

Zirconium-Mediated Synthesis of Multi-substituted Dibenzosilole and Benzonaphthosilole Derivatives

In this study, a new zirconium-mediated cycloaddition for preparing dibenzosilole derivatives was developed using silicon-bridged diynes and electron-withdrawing alkynes as starting materials. The preparation of silicon-bridged diynes from 1-bromide-2-iodobenzene, terminal alkynes, and dimethyldichlorosilane was also studied. Unlike in the previous synthesis methods, much higher...

Aerodynamic Design Based on Global Sensitivity Analysis Method

To deal with the problem of the difficult optimization search and expensive computational cost caused by large-scale design variables, the hierarchical optimization design system based on the global sensitivity analysis method is established in this paper. The M-OAT method is used to analyze the global sensitivity of the design variables, according to the sensitivity information...

Horn-like space-coiling metamaterials toward simultaneous phase and amplitude modulation

Acoustic metasurfaces represent a family of planar wavefront-shaping devices garnering increasing attention due to their capacity for novel acoustic wave manipulation. By precisely tailoring the geometry of these engineered surfaces, the effective refractive index may be modulated and, consequently, acoustic phase delays tuned. Despite the successful demonstration of phase...

Hollow-core conjoined-tube negative-curvature fibre with ultralow loss

Countering the optical network ‘capacity crunch’ calls for a radical development in optical fibres that could simultaneously minimize nonlinearity penalties, chromatic dispersion and maximize signal launch power. Hollow-core fibres (HCF) can break the nonlinear Shannon limit of solid-core fibre and fulfil all above requirements, but its optical performance need to be...

Mean platelet volume predicts survival in pancreatic cancer patients with synchronous liver metastases

Most pancreatic cancer (PC) patients manifest multiple liver metastases at the time of diagnosis. Activated platelets play a key role in tumor growth and tumor metastases. Mean platelet volume (MPV) is a platelet index and is altered in patients with malignancies. This study aimed to evaluate whether MPV can effectively predict death in PC patients with synchronous liver...

Fluorine-free water-in-ionomer electrolytes for sustainable lithium-ion batteries

The continuously increasing number and size of lithium-based batteries developed for large-scale applications raise serious environmental concerns. Herein, we address the issues related to electrolyte toxicity and safety by proposing a “water-in-ionomer” type of electrolyte which replaces organic solvents by water and expensive and toxic fluorinated lithium salts by a non...

Examining a renormalizable supersymmetric SO(10) model

We examine a renormalizable SUSY SO(10) model without fine-tuning. We show how to construct MSSM doublets and to predict proton decay. We find that in the minimal set of Yukawa couplings the model is consistent with the experiments, while including \(120_H\) to fit the data there are inconsistencies.
