Chongqing Jiaotong University was founded in 1951 as a university with engineering being the primary focus. The university also teaches management, natural science, and humanities. Situated in the Nanan District of the Chongqing Municipality, China, the university has a campus occupying an area of over 1,600 mu with a floor space of 600,000 square meters. Wikipedia.

In the spirit of AdS/CFT correspondence, we study the thermalization of a dual conformal field theory to Gauss-Bonnet gravity by modeling a thin-shell of dust that interpolates between a pure AdS and a Gauss-Bonnet AdS black brane. The renormalized geodesic length and minimal area surface, which in the dual conformal field theory correspond to two-point correlation function and expectation value of Wilson loop, are investigated respectively as thermalization probes. The result shows that as the Gauss-Bonnet coefficient increases, the thermalization time decreases for both the thermalization probes, which can also be confirmed by studying the motion profile of the geodesic and minimal area surface. In addition, for both the renormalized geodesic length and minimal area surface, there is an overlapped region for a fixed boundary separation, which implies that the Gauss-Bonnet coupling constant has little effect on the thermalization probes there. © 2013 Elsevier B.V.

In this paper, the problems of global dissipativity and global exponential dissipativity are investigated for discrete-time stochastic neural networks with time-varying delays and general activation functions. By constructing appropriate Lyapunov-Krasovskii functionals and employing stochastic analysis technique, several new delay-dependent criteria for checking the global dissipativity and global exponential dissipativity of the addressed neural networks are established in linear matrix inequalities (LMIs). Furthermore, when the parameter uncertainties appear in the discrete-time stochastic neural networks with time-varying delays, the delay-dependent robust dissipativity criteria are also presented. Two examples are given to show the effectiveness and less conservatism of the proposed criteria. © 2010 Elsevier B.V.

The graphene/poly(vinyl alcohol) (PVA) nancomposites with homogeneous dispersion of the nanosheet and enhanced nanofiller-matrix interfacial interaction were fabricated via water blending partially reduced graphene oxide and PVA. The nanocomposites were characterized by X-ray diffraction, Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy, scanning electron microscopy, and thermogravimetry. The graphene nanosheets were fully exfoliated in the PVA matrix and a new covalent linkage was formed between graphene and PVA matrix. Uncommon to conventional method, the enhanced interfacial adhesion resulted from covalent interaction and hydrogen bondings between graphene and PVA backbone. The mechanical and thermal properties of the nanocomposites were significantly improved at low graphene loadings. An 116% increase in tensile strength and a 19 ©C improvement of onset thermal degradation temperature were achieved by the addition of only 0.8 wt% graphene. © Springer-Verlag 2011.

Background: Developed countries use generic competition to contain pharmaceutical expenditure. China, as a developing and transitional country, has not yet deemed an increase in the use of generic products as important; otherwise, much effort has been made to decrease the drug prices. This paper aims to explore dynamically the price and use comparison of generic and originator drugs in China, and estimate the potential savings of patients from switching originator drugs to generics. Methods. A typical hospital in Chongqing, China, was selected to examine the price and use comparisons of 12 cardiovascular drugs from 2006 to 2011. Results: The market share of the 12 generic medicines studied in this paper was 34.37% for volume and 31.33% for value in the second half of 2011. The price ratio of generic to originator drugs was between 0.34 and 0.98, and the volume price index of originators to generics was 1.63. The potential savings of patients from switching originator drugs to generics is 65%. Conclusion: The market share of the generics was lowering and the weighted mean price kept increasing in face of the strict price control. Under the background of hospitals both prescribing and dispensing medicines, China's comprehensive healthcare policy makers should take measures from supply and demand sides to promote the consumption of generic medicines. © 2013 Zeng; licensee BioMed Central Ltd.

Graphene has attracted much interest in recent years due to its unique and outstanding properties. Different routes to prepare graphene have been developed and achieved. Preparation methods of graphene used in recent years are intensively introduced, including micromechanical cleavage, chemical vapor deposition, liquid/gas-phase-based exfoliation of graphite, epitaxial growth on an insulator, chemical reduction of exfoliated graphene oxide, etc. And their advantages and shortcomings are further discussed in detail. The preparations of graphene are also prospected.
