Agec is a semantic code-clone detection tool from Java bytecode, which (1) applies a kind of abstract interpretation to bytecode as a static analysis, in order to generate n-grams of possible execution traces, (2) detects the same n-grams from distinct places of the bytecode, and (3) then reports these n-grams as code clones. The strengths of the tool are: static analysis (no need for test cases), detection of clones of deeply nested invocations, and Map-Reduce ready detection algorithms for scalability. © 2013 IEEE.

The hippocampus is known to maintain memories of object-place associations that can produce a scene expectation at a novel viewpoint. To implement such capabilities, the memorized distances and directions of an object from the viewer at a fixed location should be integrated with the imaginary displacement to the new viewpoint. However, neural dynamics of such scene expectation at the novel viewpoint have not been discussed. In this study, we propose a method of coding novel places based on visual scene transformation as a component of the object-place memory in the hippocampus. In this coding, a novel place is represented by a transformed version of a viewer's scene with imaginary displacement. When the places of individual objects are stored with the coding in the hippocampus, the object's displacement at the imaginary viewpoint can be evaluated through the comparison of a transformed viewer's scene with the stored scene. Results of computer experiments demonstrated that the coding successfully produced scene expectation of a three object arrangement at a novel viewpoint. Such the scene expectation was retained even without similarities between the imaginary scene and the real scene at the location, where the imaginary scenes only functioned as indices to denote the topographical relationship between object locations. The results suggest that the hippocampus uses the place coding based on scene transformation and implements the spatial imagery of object-place associations from the novel viewpoint. © 2011 Elsevier B.V.

Davies' surface condition is an approximate free-surface condition on gravity waves progressing in permanent form on water of infinite depth. It is known that this condition preserves essential features of finite-amplitude waves including the highest one. This paper proposes a new surface condition that generalizes Davies' idea of approximation and covers a fully nonlinear condition. Analytic continuation of the proposed surface condition allows us to explore singularities of solutions that dominate the flow. The results of singularity analysis elucidate the connection between Davies' approximate solution and the fully nonlinear solution. In addition, it is shown that the nonmonotonic variation of wave speed with wave steepness can be predicted using a linear sum of a relatively small number of singularities. This suggests that a suitable choice of a parameter in the proposed surface condition can move singularities away from the flow field without changing their structure and may reduce numerical difficulties due to singularities for large-amplitude waves. © 2013 Springer Science+Business Media Dordrecht.

Semantic-differential data of color emotions for color pairs were collected and examined with factor analysis (FA) and independent component analysis (ICA). The axial orientations of factors cannot be identified by FA, whereas they can be determined by ICA with the intrinsic statistical properties of data such as kurtosis. Three factors or components were extracted by FA and ICA. The factors extracted by FA with the varimax method were consistent with the primary factors: evaluation, activity, and potency. When ICA extracted components with positive kurtosis, the components did not match any of the primary factors. However, the independent components extracted by ICA for negative kurtosis were consistent with the primary factors, and similar to the factors obtained by FA. The results of ICA suggest that the evaluation, activity, and potency factors are independent dimensions in psychological space of color emotions for color pairs. The distributions of the factor scores in FA and the scores of the independent components obtained by ICA for negative kurtosis were not Gaussian, but they had negative kurtosis. These support the use ofICA instead of FA. © 2012 Wiley Periodicals, Inc. Source

In this study, we consider the effects of chemotaxis and lateral inhibition on an activator in a three-component reaction-diffusion system. Simulation results show that spot, planar and travelling front solutions in two dimensions are destabilized to form multibranch patterns. In order to analyse the stability of stationary solutions, a singular perturbation method is employed. The bifurcation diagrams suggest that chemotaxis and lateral inhibition cooperatively result in the destabilization of the stationary solutions. Our three-component model is compared with the two-component chemotaxis-growth model. Furthermore, the conditions for observing the cooperative effects of chemotaxis and lateral inhibition on an activator in experiments are inferred from the model. © 2011 IOP Publishing Ltd & London Mathematical Society.
