Abstract:
The structural, electronic and optical properties of rocksalt CdO have been studied using the plane-wave-based pseudo-potential density functional theory within generalized gradient approximation. The calculated lattice parameters are in agreement with previous experimental work. The band structure, density of states, and Mulliken charge population are obtained, which indicates that rocksalt CdO having the properties of a halfmetal due to an indirect band gap of -0.51eV. The mechanical properties show that rocksalt CdO is mechanically stable, isotropic and malleable. Significantly, we propose a correct value for ε_{1}(0) of about 4.75, which offers theoretical data for the design and application for rocksalt CdO in optoelectronic materials.

“The Kite Management Philosophy” tells us: Before making change, an organization should fully understand the
surrounding environment, prepare related factors and develop a suitable system.
After the conditions are ripe, it must boldly implement the organizational
goals and be good at controlling. The current biggest problem of obsessing and obstacle
of the Chinese universities logistics reform is not properly handling the
relationship between logistics public welfare and marketability. The
dependence relationship of the two aspects is like a flying kite—more public
welfare means taking back and more marketability means flying off. Managers
should follow “The Kite Management Philosophy”, timely release and recycle the
cord according to the actual situation. They should dare to reform, be good
at controlling and have the courage to innovate.

Abstract:
The influence factors and reaction mechanism during the catalytic wet air oxidation of acetic acid with Ti-Ce series catalyst was investigated in this paper. The results show that the reaction was influenced by the catalyst load, the reaction temperature, the pH of the reaction system and the partial pressure of oxygen. More than 90% removal efficiency of acetic acid (as COD) can be obtained at the reaction conditions as follow: temperature 230 degrees C, oxygen partial pressure 2-2.5 MPa, catalyst amount 5 g/L, initial pH of the system 3.0 and reaction time 1 h. With Ion Chromatography, the formic acid formed during the reaction process was detected. The formic was found during the wet air oxidation of acetic acid in the absence of catalyst, but can not be detected during the catalytic wet air oxidation process with Ti-Ce catalyst. It means that the presence of catalyst in the system not only improve the removal efficiency, but also change the oxidation pathway.

Abstract:
Spectral analysis is performed on the Born equation, a strongly singular integral equation modeling the interactions between electromagnetic waves and arbitrarily shaped dielectric scatterers. Compact and Hilbert--Schmidt operator polynomials are constructed from the Green operator of electromagnetic scattering on scatterers with smooth boundaries. As a consequence, it is shown that the strongly singular Born equation has a discrete spectrum, and that the spectral series $ \sum_\lambda|\lambda|^2|1+2\lambda|^4$ is convergent, counting multiplicities of the eigenvalues $ \lambda$. This reveals a shape-independent optical resonance mode corresponding to a critical dielectric permittivity $ \epsilon_r=-1$, which could be of practical interest in synthetic chemistry and materials science.

Abstract:
We study the distribution of eigenvalues for the Green operator occurring in the scattering of electromagnetic waves by an arbitrarily shaped dielectric medium. It is revealed that the totality of eigenvalues (counting multiplicities) can be enumerated as a sequence $ \{\lambda_s\}_{s=1}^N,N\leq\aleph_0$, with only two possible accumulation points $ \{0,-1/2\}$, and the following spectral series converges: $ \sum_{s=1}^N|\lambda_s|^2|1+2\lambda_s|^4<+\infty$.

Abstract:
The purpose of this note is to show that in a widely cited paper by Yakir [Ann. Statist. 25 (1997) 2117--2126, doi:10.1214/aos/1069362390], the proof that the so-called modified Shiryayev--Roberts procedure is exactly optimal is incorrect. We also clarify the issues involved by both mathematical arguments and a simulation study. The correctness of the theorem remains in doubt.

Abstract:
In the sequential change-point detection literature, most research specifies a required frequency of false alarms at a given pre-change distribution $f_{\theta}$ and tries to minimize the detection delay for every possible post-change distribution $g_{\lambda}$. In this paper, motivated by a number of practical examples, we first consider the reverse question by specifying a required detection delay at a given post-change distribution and trying to minimize the frequency of false alarms for every possible pre-change distribution $f_{\theta}$. We present asymptotically optimal procedures for one-parameter exponential families. Next, we develop a general theory for change-point problems when both the pre-change distribution $f_{\theta}$ and the post-change distribution $g_{\lambda}$ involve unknown parameters. We also apply our approach to the special case of detecting shifts in the mean of independent normal observations.

Various integrals over elliptic integrals are evaluated as couplings on spheres, resulting in some integral and series representations for the mathematical constants $\pi$, $G$ and $\zeta(3)$.
