    • Soil nailing is a technique for stabilizing soil slopes and excavations by installing a large number of closely spaced passive inclusions into the in-situ soil mass. The soil nailing technique has been increasingly used worldwide since its origination in the early 1970's because of its technical and economical advantages. In Hong Kong, soil nailing has been commonly used to stabilize new cut and sub-standard existing slopes since the late 1980's. The interface shear strength between a soil nail and the surrounding soil is a key parameter for design and stability assessment of the soil nailing system. However, in current practice in Hong Kong, this parameter is generally assumed to be ...

    • Field Programmable Gate Arrays (FPGAs) have begun to appear as accelerators for general computation. Their potential for massive parallelism, high on-chip memory bandwidth, and customizable interconnection networks all contribute to demonstrated 100-1000x increases in application performance relative to current PCs. FPGA coprocessors have been available in niche markets for years, and are now appearing in mainstream supercomputers from vendors including Cray and Silicon Graphics. Available development tools do not address developers of computing applications, however. Traditional FPGA design tools meet the gate-level needs of logic designers, but present a computing model that vanish...

    • We will show that G(IFq[t]) is a lattice of minimum covolume among the lattices in G(Tq((t-1))), if G is a simply connected classical Chevalley group and p > 7. This is analogous to the Lubotzky's result [Lu90] for the case of SIL2. Moreover, we will show that up to an automorphism of G(IFq((t-1))), lattice of minimum covolume is unique. Along the way, we would prove a quantitative version of a theorem by Kazhdan and Margulis. Namely we prove that any lattice in G = G(IFq((t-1))) can be pushed out of the 1" congruence subgroup by applying an adjoint automorphism of G, where l is the maximum coefficient appearing in the highest root of G.

    • Bài viết này khảo sát vai trò của xã hội học trong việc tìm hiểu hiện tượng hẹn hò trên mạng. Dựa trên cơ sở nghiên cứu định tính của chúng tôi về 23 người hẹn hò trên mạng, kết hợp với những kết quả từ số lượng ít ỏi các nghiên cứu thực nghiệm hiện có khác, chúng tôi cho rằng cần có tiếp tục xem xét hiện tượng này về mặt xã hội học thêm nữa để làm sáng tỏ những điều kiện xã hội ảnh hưởng đến các hoạt động này; gia tăng tri thức về nó, và công nghệ trên mạng làm phương tiện trung gian cho những quan hệ thân tình như thế nào, và đưa ra một quan niệm rõ ràng hơn về bản chất của quan hệ thân tình trong thời đại toàn cầu.

    • Việc sử dụng máy tính cho đào tạo đã dẫn đến một sự thay đổi đáng kể trong giảng dạy. Sự phát triển này đã dẫn đến sự gia tăng nguồn tài nguyên học tập kỹ thuật số. Để tìm kiếm nguồn tài nguyên này một cách đầy đủ và chính xác cần có thêm sự hỗ trợ của các chuyên gia thông tin – thư viện bởi họ sẽ là người giúp cho nguồn tài nguyên này được sắp xếp, lưu trữ và phổ biến dễ dàng nhất đến người sử dụng. Trong quá trình tìm kiếm, sử dụng nguồn tài nguyên OER, để kiểm soát nội dung, để tránh nội dung trùng lặp hay để tìm một khía cạnh trong nội dung trong OER, cần thiết phải tạo cho chúng một bảng chỉ mục. Bảng chỉ mục giúp người dùng lựa chọn lĩnh vực, nội dung cần tìm.

    • Selected forms of inservice education are costly or moderately expensive. The writer observed an inservice social studies education program which was definitely inexpensive and yet participants seemingly gained much from its offering. Once participants were initially engaged, motivation was high! The social studies teachers involved in the inservice program had access to a professionals library consisting of educational journals, social studies teaching periodicals, video tapes on classroom practices, as well as recent university level teacher education textbooks. Informally,teachers had discussed changes which needed to be made in the instructional arena,but this had never gone beyo...

    • A type of problem domain known as a pseudo-independent (PI) model poses difficulty for the common algorithms for learning probabilistic networks based on a single-link lookahead search. To learn PI models, a special search method called a multi-link lookahead is required, and the method has been implemented in an algorithm called the RML by Xiang et. at in 2000. The algorithm is equipped with the scoring metric of cross entropy measuring the goodness-of-fit of a model and a user-provided acceptance threshold of a goodness-of-fit score, defining a stopping condition of the search. Recently an overfitting problem has been identified in using a multi-link search with a single threshold. ...

    • Authors: Sargut; Sarout, Gokce; Mc Grath, Rita Bunther (2011-09)

    • The article discusses managing complexity. As environments become more complex, the potential for unintended consequences arising from even small decisions increases. Complexity also makes it more difficult for managers to find a vantage point from which all relevant parts of an organization or business can be seen. Several strategies for addressing these challenges are presented including the use of better forecasting tools, improved risk mitigation, and implementation of effective tradeoffs in the decision- making process.

    • Learning-based techniques have seen more and more successful application in computer vision. "Learning for vision" is viewed as the next challenging frontier for computer vision. Technical challenges in applying learning-based methods in vision include picking the appropriate representation, model generalization and complexity. This dissertation investigated different vision problems together with the proposed learning algorithms for them. In particular, three vision problems are studied from low-level to high level: stereo, super-resolution and human detection. In the first part, we present a learning-based approach [73, 74]to address the visual correspondence problems when the ster...

    • We sought major gradients in epiphytic macrolichen community composition at a landscape scale in the western Oregon Cascades. These gradients form a context for understanding likely effects of forest management, air pollution, and climate change on an important part of the biota. We also compared lichen community composition in different forest age classes to describe lichen colonization, succession, and the association of species with stands of different ages. Variation in lichen community composition was well described by nonmetric multidimensional scaling (NMS) with 83.4% of the variation accounted for. The strongest gradient (rotated to axis 1; r2 = 0.46) was related to climate as...

    • Collecting microlymphatics play a vital role in promoting lymph flow from the initial lymphatics in the interstitial spaces to the large transport lymph ducts. In most tissues, the primary mechanism for producing this flow is the spontaneous contractions of the lymphatic wall. Individual units, known as lymphangion, are separated by valves that help prevent backflow when the vessel contracts, thus promoting flow through the lymphatic network. Lymphatic contractile activity is inhibited by flow in isolated lymphatics, however there are virtually no in situ measurements of lymph flow in these vessels. Initially, a high speed imaging system was set up to image in situ preparations at 500...

    • In this thesis we construct liftings of automorphic forms from the metaplectic group fSL2 to GSpin(1, 4) using the MaaB Converse Theorem. In order to prove the non-vanishing of the lift we derive Waldspurger’s formula for Fourier coefficients of half integer weight MaaB forms. We analyze the automorphic representation of the adelic spin group obtained from the lift and show that it is CAP to the Saito Kurokawa lift from SL2 to GSp4(A).
