Fergusonite-type monoclinic BiVO4 (fm-BiVO4) is an important semiconductor photocatalyst as an alternative to TiO2 for solar energy conversion and environmental protection. Based upon density functional theory (DFT) calculations, we report the results of a comprehensive study of the surface properties of fm-BiVO4, including surface geometric/electronic structures, surface energy, work function, Bader charge, and oxygen-vacancy formation energy on the (100), (010), (001), (101), (011), (110) and (111) surfaces. The low-index surfaces of fm-BiVO4 are characterized by surface geometric structures terminated with Bi atoms and VO4 groups. There are strongly localized band-gap states at the (110) and (111) surfaces. The calculated surface energies of fm-BiVO4 indicate a surface stability order of {001} > {011} ∼ {101} > {111} > {110} > {010} ∼ {100}. The equilibrium morphology of fm-BiVO4 is predicted as a corner-cut truncated bipyramid with {001}, {101}, {011} and {111} facets exposed, in good agreement with experiments. The dramatic difference in work function may act as the driving force for photogenerated charge separation between {101}/{011} and {001} as observed in experiments. Based on our results, we provide a clue to morphology design for further enhancing the efficiency of charge separation in fm-BiVO4. © The Royal Society of Chemistry.

In this paper, we propose a composite Laguerre spectral method for the nonlinear Fokker–Planck equations modelling the relaxation of fermion and boson gases. A composite Laguerre spectral scheme is constructed. Its convergence is proved. Numerical results show the efficiency of this approach and coincide well with theoretical analysis. Some results on the Laguerre approximation and techniques used in this paper are also applicable to other nonlinear problems on the whole line. Copyright © 2016 John Wiley & Sons, Ltd.

Background: To date, many publications have evaluated the correlation between the Ethylenetetrahydrofolate reductase gene (MTHFR) C677T and Ischemic Stroke susceptibility in adults. However, the results remain inconclusive. The meta-analysis was performed to resolve the problem. Methods: Based on 38 studies, dichotomous data were presented as the odds ratio (OR) with a 95% confidence interval (CI). Results: This study found, the carriers of the MTHFR 677C→T variation were more likely to increase the risk of Ischemic Stroke susceptibility in all over pooled population, including Asian and European, but not in African population (Europe: TT vs. CC+TC: OR = 1.364 95% CI = 1.010-1.841 p = 0.043; Asia subgroup: T vs. C: OR = 1.245, 95% CI = 1.141-1.358, p < 0.001; Africa: T vs. C: OR = 1.202, 95% CI = 0.990-1.459, p = 0.062). Among etiology stratified analysis, only large-artery atherosclerosis subgroups had a significant different, and the p value was less than 0.01 in all genetic models (T vs. C: OR = 1.29, 95% CI = 1.09-1.52, p = 0.002; TT+TC vs. CC: OR = 1.27, 95% CI = 1.06-1.51, p = 0.009; TT vs. CC+TC: OR = 1.62, 95% CI = 1.19-2.19, p = 0.002). Conclusions: This meta-analysis suggests that MTHFR C677T mutation increased the risk of Ischemic Stroke in adults, especially in large-artery atherosclerosis. Copyright © 2015 Taylor and Francis.

The operational efficiency of ultrasonic motor motion control systems is much lower than that of traditional electromagnetic motors, which badly restricts the application of ultrasonic motor in portable devices. Lower efficiency, robustness, and wear condition are the main problems of ultrasonic motor systems. This paper studies on the optimum efficiency control strategy of an ultrasonic motor system and selects the commercially used ultrasonic motor Shinsei USR60 as the experimental motor. To provide a basis for the optimum efficiency control, the control characteristic of system efficiency is studied first under speed closed-loop control condition. Then, a novel feedforward speed controller compounded with a pole-assignment controller is designed to compensate the disturbance caused by the efficiency optimization process. After that, the optimum efficiency control strategy with varying step length based on fuzzy reasoning is proposed. Experiments show that the proposed optimum control methods can greatly increase the operational efficiency of the ultrasonic motor system. © 2011 IEEE.

Community studies have shown that plant species are often pollinated by multiple pollinators; however, networks of heterospecific pollen transfer (HPT) in natural communities remain largely unexplored. We analyzed pollen deposition on stigmas of 57 flowering species to build a picture of plant-plant interactions via HPT in a biodiverse alpine meadow in southwest China. Plant species were categorized as pollen donors or recipients by their link numbers and link qualities. We identified 3609 heterospecific pollen grains, representing 410 links among 69 pollen species. Each plant species received on average 7.2 pollen species and donated its pollen to 5.5 species; only a few species donated or received large amounts of pollen or pollen from a large number of species. Compared to specialized plants, generalized plants tended to receive more heterospecific pollen but exported no more pollen to other species. Plant position in the network was related to both floral traits (stigma position) and pollinator generalization level. When different species share the same pollinator, bidirectional HPT may occur, but this was rarely observed in the species-rich community, indicating that interspecific pollen interference was largely unidirectional. Our study highlights the importance of understanding how sympatric flowering plants reduce deleterious effects of HPT, for example via stigma position. This study is the first to present a pollen transfer network for an entire community and to unravel its properties using directed network analysis. © 2013 by the Ecological Society of America.

For costly and dangerous experiments, growing attention has been paid to the problem of the reliability analysis of zero-failure data, with many new findings in world countries, especially in China. The existing reliability theory relies on the known lifetime distribution, such as the Weibull distribution and the gamma distribution. Thus, it is ineffective if the lifetime probability distribution is unknown. For this end, this article proposes the grey bootstrap method in the information poor theory for the reliability analysis of zero-failure data under the condition of a known or unknown probability distribution of lifetime. The grey bootstrap method is able to generate many simulated zero-failure data with the help of few zero-failure data and to estimate the lifetime probability distribution by means of an empirical failure probability function defined in this article. The experimental investigation presents that the grey bootstrap method is effective in the reliability analysis only with the few zero-failure data and without any prior information of the lifetime probability distribution.

Compared with the traditional transaction, the characteristic of a typical e-commerce is that there is greater uncertainty. This article summarizes the factors from websites, online operator characteristics, consumer personal factors. And it established trust model for providing consumers purchase basis when in the "information inaccuracy" and "information incomplete" condition. This trust model is established by using DS evidence theory.

In ultrasonic testing of concrete structure quality, in order to obtain an accurate evaluation to concrete quality, the high imaging accuracy is needed. Because of the non-uniformity of concrete structure, classic algorithm is difficult to meet the requirement of high accuracy tomography computation, and even disabled result will be obtained. An improved simulated annealing (SA) algorithm based on chaos search and natural weight function is presented. Firstly, curve ray tracing method is applied to determine the final propagation path, and then chaos search and natural weight function are introduced to modify the path and improve the accuracy of simulated annealing-backfire algorithm, and the CT image of structure is calculated and obtained by the algorithm. It is shown from numerical simulation that the improved algorithm is more effective and accurate, and imaging resolution is improved obviously. © 2014 IFSA Publishing, S. L.

Simple sequence repeat (SSR) molecular markers based on 18 primers were employed to study the genetic relationship of Japanese persimmon (Diospyros kaki) specimens. Two hundred and sixty-two bands were detected in 30 Japanese persimmon samples, including 14 Japanese and 10 Chinese genotypes of Japanese persimmon (Diospyros kaki) and six related species, D. lotus, D. glaucifolia, D. oleifera, D. rhombifolia, D. virginiana, and Jinzaoshi (unclassified - previously indicated to be D. kaki). All SSR primers developed from D. kaki were successfully employed to reveal the polymorphism in other species of Diospyros. Most of the primers were highly polymorphic, with a degree of polymorphism equal to or higher than 0.66. The results from the neighbor-joining dendrogram and the principal coordinate analysis diagram were the same; i.e., the Chinese and Japanese genotypes and related species were separated and the relationships revealed were consistent with the known pedigrees. We also concluded that 'Xiangxitianshi' from Xiangxi municipality, Hunan Province, China, is actually a sport or somaclonal variant of 'Maekawa-Jirou', and that 'Jinzaoshi' should be classified as a distinct species of Diospyros. We found that SSR markers are a valuable tool for the estimation of genetic diversity and divergence in Diospyros.

Although the relationships between endothelial nitric oxide synthase (eNOS) gene polymorphisms (including G894T, VNTR and T786C) and risk of ischemic stroke (IS) have been extensively studied, controversial results have been reported. The aim of this study was to assess the relationships between them by using a meta-analysis. Literatures were retrieved through the following databases: Medline, Embase and Wangfang (updated to January 1st, 2013). Fixed- or random-effects model was used to calculate pooled odds ratio and 95 % confidence interval (OR and 95 % CI). A total of 31 case-control studies including 8,547 patients and 9,117 controls were included in this meta-analysis eventually. For eNOS G894T polymorphism, the results indicated that TT genotype was significantly associated with increased risk of IS incidence compared to G allele (OR and 95 % CI 1.25 (1.09-1.42) for TT vs. GT+GG, P < 0.001). When subgroup analysis was conducted according to ethnicities, T allele was significantly associated with risk of IS for Asians rather than for Caucasians. For eNOS VNTR polymorphism, 4aa genotype was significantly associated with risk of IS incidence compared to 4bb genotype (OR (95 % CI) 2.22 (1.66-2.97) for aa vs. bb, P < 0.001). Similarly, when subgroup analyses were conducted, 4aa was closely associated with increased risk of IS for Asians rather than for Caucasians. For eNOS T786C polymorphism, it was not associated with risk of IS incidence. In conclusion, this study indicated that eNOS 894T and VNTR 4a allele was significantly associated with risk of IS incidence for Asians. However, eNOS T786C polymorphism was not a likely risk factor for IS incidence. © 2014 Springer Science+Business Media Dordrecht.
