Multiple Ionization Cross Sections of Ne and CO Induced by Very High-q Fast Projectiles (q/v > 1)  [PDF]
Man Zhou, Zhenye Wang, Sufen Li, Peng Xu, Haoxin Zhou
Journal of Applied Mathematics and Physics (JAMP) , 2018, DOI: 10.4236/jamp.2018.611196
In this paper, we extend our previous work of classical over barrier ionization (COBI) model to study the multiple ionization cross section of Ne and CO molecule collided by very high-q fast projectiles(q/v > 1). The model gives similar results to the independent-electron-approximation calculation and is in good agreement with experimental data. The very small computational time required makes it a good candidate for studying the multiple ionization of complex molecules under high linear energy transfers.
Forced response of atmospheric oscillations during the last millennium simulated by a climate system model
WenMin Man,TianJun Zhou
Chinese Science Bulletin , 2011, DOI: 10.1007/s11434-011-4637-2
Abstract: Variations in global atmospheric oscillations during the last millennium are simulated using the climate system model FGOALS_gl. The model was driven by reconstructions of both natural forcing (solar variability and volcanic aerosol) and anthropogenic forcing (greenhouse gases and sulfate aerosol). The model results are compared against proxy reconstruction data. The reconstructed North Atlantic Oscillation (NAO) was out of phase with the Pacific Decadal Oscillation (PDO) in the last millennium. During the Medieval Warm Period (MWP), the NAO was strong while the PDO was weak. During the Little Ice Age (LIA), the NAO was weak while the PDO was strong. A La Ni a-like state prevailed in the MWP, while an El Ni o-like state dominated in the LIA. This phenomenon is particularly obvious in the 15th, 17th and 19th centuries. Analysis of the model output indicates that the NAO was generally positive during 1000–1400 AD and negative during 1650–1900 AD. There is a discrepancy between the simulation and reconstruction during 1400–1650 AD. The simulated PDO generally varies in parallel with the reconstruction, which has a negative phase during the MWP and a positive phase during the LIA. The correlation coefficient between the reconstruction and simulation is 0.61, and the correlation is statistically significant at the 1% level. Neither the La Ni a-like state of the MWP nor the El Ni o-like state of the LIA is reproduced in the model. Both the reconstructed and the simulated Antarctic Oscillations had a negative phase in the early period of the last millennium and a positive phase in the late period of the last millennium. The Asian-Pacific Oscillation was generally strong during the WMP and weak during the LIA, and the correlation coefficient between the simulation and reconstruction is 0.50 for the period 1000–1985 AD. The analysis suggests that the specified external forcings significantly affected the evolution of atmospheric oscillation during the last millennium.

Guanxia Yu, Lijuan Xia, Baibing Xu, Man Zhou
Journal of Electromagnetic Analysis and Applications (JEMAA) , 2011, DOI: 10.4236/jemaa.2011.311070
Abstract: Basing on the transformation optics, we propose a kind of transformation method of compressing or stretching. With the method, we propose a design of transparent radome for different structures. The electromagnetic (EM) waves inside or outside the radome can transmit through the structure without any reflection. Numerical simulations confirm the function of the radome structures.

Chandara Man, Genguang Zhang, Vouchleang Hong, Shuang Zhou, Yulin Feng
World Journal of Engineering and Technology (WJET) , 2019, DOI: 10.4236/wjet.2019.72016
Abstract: The main purpose of this paper is to analyze the influence of different turbulence flow models on scouring pit of bridge-pier. Flow-3D software is applied in line with the purpose. The key motivation for this study is to contribute to the Flow-3D software by means of some modification and adjustment in the sediment scour model and shallow water model. An assessment of turbulence model adopted with the parameters of the Melville experiment to estimate the maximum scour-depth was performed. In the simulation results, the alternate eddy formation and shedding were repeated while the Karman vortex street formed behind the pier for the large eddy simulation LES turbulence model is more realistic in the flow phenomenon. The results of the scour development of large eddy simulation (LES) turbulence model were found to be more satisfied than the Renormalized group (RNG) turbulence model and close to the prior experiment results. The simulated scour results were significantly different with the observed data collected from previous literature in the reason of some unsuitability of meshing method in Flow-3D software.

ZhangHua Wu,Man Man,ErCang Luo,Wei Dai,Yuan Zhou
Chinese Science Bulletin , 2011, DOI: 10.1007/s11434-011-4504-1
Abstract: In this paper, an experimental investigation of a traveling-wave thermoacoustic electricity generator, which consists of a traveling-wave thermoacoustic heat engine and a linear alternator driven by that engine, is presented. Using the results of previous theoretical and experimental research, we designed and fabricated a traveling-wave thermoacoustic heat engine and a linear alternator. In the experiments, 450.9 W of electrical power was obtained with a maximum thermal-to-electrical efficiency of 15.03%, and a maximum electrical power of 481.0 W was achieved with 12.65% thermal-to-electrical efficiency.

Generation of atom-photon entangled states in atomic Bose-Einstein condensate via electromagnetically induced transparency
Le-Man Kuang,Lan Zhou
Physics , 2004, DOI: 10.1103/PhysRevA.68.043606
Abstract: In this paper, we present a method to generate continuous-variable-type entangled states between photons and atoms in atomic Bose-Einstein condensate (BEC). The proposed method involves an atomic BEC with three internal states, a weak quantized probe laser and a strong classical coupling laser, which form a three-level Lambda-shaped BEC system. We consider a situation where the BEC is in electromagnetically induced transparency (EIT) with the coupling laser being much stronger than the probe laser. In this case, the upper and intermediate levels are unpopulated, so that their adiabatic elimination enables an effective two-mode model involving only the atomic field at the lowest internal level and the quantized probe laser field. Atom-photon quantum entanglement is created through laser-atom and inter-atomic interactions, and two-photon detuning. We show how to generate atom-photon entangled coherent states and entangled states between photon (atom) coherent states and atom-(photon-) macroscopic quantum superposition (MQS) states, and between photon-MQS and atom-MQS states.
A Unified Approach to Error Bounds for Structured Convex Optimization Problems
Zirui Zhou,Anthony Man-Cho So
Mathematics , 2015,
Abstract: Error bounds, which refer to inequalities that bound the distance of vectors in a test set to a given set by a residual function, have proven to be extremely useful in analyzing the convergence rates of a host of iterative methods for solving optimization problems. In this paper, we present a new framework for establishing error bounds for a class of structured convex optimization problems, in which the objective function is the sum of a smooth convex function and a general closed proper convex function. Such a class encapsulates not only fairly general constrained minimization problems but also various regularized loss minimization formulations in machine learning, signal processing, and statistics. Using our framework, we show that a number of existing error bound results can be recovered in a unified and transparent manner. To further demonstrate the power of our framework, we apply it to a class of nuclear-norm regularized loss minimization problems and establish a new error bound for this class under a strict complementarity-type regularity condition. We then complement this result by constructing an example to show that the said error bound could fail to hold without the regularity condition. Consequently, we obtain a rather complete answer to a question raised by Tseng. We believe that our approach will find further applications in the study of error bounds for structured convex optimization problems.
Adsorption of Externally Stretched Two-Dimensional Flexible and Semi-flexible Polymers near an Attractive Wall
Pui-Man Lam,Yi Zhen,Haijun Zhou,Jie Zhou
Physics , 2009, DOI: 10.1103/PhysRevE.79.061127
Abstract: We study analytically a model of a two dimensional, partially directed, flexible or semiflexible polymer, attached to an attractive wall which is perpendicular to the preferred direction. In addition, the polymer is stretched by an externally applied force. We find that the wall has a dramatic effect on the polymer. For wall attraction smaller than the non-sequential nearest neighbor attraction, the fraction of monomers at the wall is zero and the model is the same as that of a polymer without a wall. However, for greater than, the fraction of monomers at the wall undergoes a first order transition from unity at low temperature and small force, to zero at higher temperatures and forces. We present phase diagram for this transition. Our results are confirmed by Monte-Carlo simulations.
A comparison of the Medieval Warm Period, Little Ice Age and 20th century warming simulated by the FGOALS climate system model
TianJun Zhou,Bo Li,WenMin Man,LiXia Zhang,Jie Zhang
Chinese Science Bulletin , 2011, DOI: 10.1007/s11434-011-4641-6
Abstract: To compare differences among the Medieval Warm Period (MWP), Little Ice Age (LIA), and 20th century global warming (20CW), six sets of transient and equilibrium simulations were generated using the climate system model FGOALS_gl. This model was developed by the State Key Laboratory of Numerical Modeling for Atmospheric Sciences and Geophysical Fluid Dynamics, Institute of Atmospheric Physics, Chinese Academy of Sciences. The results indicate that MWP warming is evident on a global scale, except for at mid-latitudes of the North Pacific. However, the magnitude of the warming is weaker than that in the 20th century. The warming in the high latitudes of the Northern Hemisphere is stronger than that in the Southern Hemisphere. The LIA cooling is also evident on a global scale, with a strong cooling over the high Eurasian continent, while the cooling center is over the Arctic domain. Both the MWP and the 20CW experiments exhibit the strongest warming anomalies in the middle troposphere around 200–300 hPa, but the cooling center of the LIA experiment is seen in the polar surface of the Northern Hemisphere. A comparison of model simulation against the reconstruction indicates that model’s performance in simulating the surface air temperature changes during the warm periods is better than that during the cold periods. The consistencies between model and reconstruction in lower latitudes are better than those in high latitudes. Comparison of the inter-annual variability mode of East Asian summer monsoon (EASM) rainfall during the MWP, LIA and 20CW reveals a similar rainfall anomalies pattern. However, the time spectra of the principal component during the three typical periods of the last millennium are different, and the quasi-biannual oscillation is more evident during the two warm periods. At a centennial time scale, the external mode of the EASM variability driven by the changes of effective solar radiation is determined by the changes of large scale land-sea thermal contrast. The rainfall anomalies over the east of 110°E exhibit a meridional homogeneous change pattern, which is different from the meridional out-of-phase change of rainfall anomalies associated with the internal mode.
