The effects of the electric field and temperature on a RbCl asymmetry quantum dot (AQD) qubit are investigated by using a variational method of the Pekar type. We first study the eigenenergies and eigenfunctions of the ground and first excited states of an electron strongly coupled to bulk longitudinal optical (LO) phonons with a three-dimensional (3D) harmonic potential under the influence of an electric field. This AQD two-level system may serve as a single qubit. We then obtain the time evolution of the electron's probability density when the electron is in the superposition state of the ground and first excited states. Finally, we investigate the effects of the electric field and temperature on the oscillating period, the time evolution of the electron's probability density and the coherence time. The numerical results show that the electron's probability density and its oscillatory period will increase (decrease) with increasing temperature in the low (high) temperature regime. The electron's probability density oscillates with a certain period in the AQD. The oscillating period is an increasing function of the temperature and the electric field. The coherence time is an increasing function of the temperature and the electric field, but it is a decreasing one of the transverse and longitudinal confinement strengths.©2014 The Physical Society of Japan.

Based on the review of 26 high-standard Holocene climatic reconstructions (mainly pollen-based) from the Mongolian Plateau and its surrounding areas, temporal and spatial patterns of the Holocene moisture evolution are synthesized. The regionally-averaged moisture history from the summer monsoon-influenced semiarid belt in China (i.e., Region A) demonstrates that the moisture index curve is broadly in agreement with the synthesized East Asian Monsoon Strength curve, both following the general trend of the West Tropical Pacific SST that is in turn the delayed response to the northern hemispheric summer solar insolation. The regionally-averaged moisture indices from the winter monsoon-dominated southern Siberia including Lake Baikal area and the Altai Mountains (i.e., Region B) exhibit a general declining trends since 10.6-9.6. cal. kyr BP, being largely consistent with the trends of the annual precipitation and the warm-season temperature in the Russian Plain. The consistency might be attributable to the Holocene declining trend of the warm-season temperature in North Atlantic region. The predominant feature of the regionally-averaged moisture index from the westerlies-affected northern Xinjiang (i.e., Region C) is a persistent increasing trend since ~. 8. cal. kyr BP. The wetting trend of northern Xinjiang during the past 8000. years might be attributable to the increasing trend of winter insolation and to the associated increasing trend of cold-season temperature in northwestern Europe. The chronological correspondences between dry phases and warm intervals in the arid areas of the Mongolian Plateau (i.e., northern Mongolian Plateau within Mongolia and southern Mongolian Plateau within China, Region D) lend a support to the proposal that the mid-Holocene dry phase was most likely the result of mid-Holocene high warm-season temperature. © 2013 Elsevier B.V.

miR-375 is an important small non-coding RNA that is specifically expressed in islet cells of the pancreas. miR-375 is required for normal pancreatic genesis and influences not only β-cell mass but also α-cell mass. miR-375 is also important to glucose-regulated insulin secretion through the regulation of the expression of Mtpn and Pdk1 genes. When human embryonic stem cells (hESCs) differentiate into endodermal lineages, miR-375 is highly expressed in the definitive endoderm, which suggests that miR-375 may have a distinct role in early development. miR-375 plays an important role in the complex regulatory network of pancreatic development, which could be regulated by pancreatic genes, such as NeuroD1, Ngn3, Pdx1 and Hnf6; additionally, miR-375 regulates genes related to pancreas development, cell growth and proliferation and insulin secretion genes to exert its function. Because of the special role of miR-375, it may be a potential target to treat diabetes. Antagonising miR-375 may enhance the effects of exendin-4 in patients, and controlling the expression of miR-375 could assist mature hESCs-derived β-cells. © 2013 Elsevier B.V. Source

We develop a cellular automata model with finer discretization of space and higher walking velocities more than one cell. The model is used to simulate the evacuation process of pedestrians from a room with an exit. By simulation experiments, we find subtle effects of the discretization degree and walking velocities on the shape of the crowd near the exit, the evacuation time of each individual at different locations, and the evacuation efficiency of pedestrians formulated by two time indicators. We also investigate the relations between the exit flow and the exit width, formulated by the model, and compare the flow-width relations with those obtained by laboratory experiments in the existing literatures. This study is helpful for the validation and calibration of microscopic pedestrian models with discrete space representation and further narrowing the gap between these models' theory and their application to engineering. © 2013 Elsevier Ltd.

We propose a revised social force model to simulate the pedestrian counter flow through a bottleneck. Spatial and temporal separation rules are involved in this model so as to reproduce these self-organizing movement patterns of pedestrians, including oscillatory flow and three classes of lane formations. Moreover, by scenario simulations, we show that, by reasonably adjusting the parameters in these separation rules, the pedestrian efficiency of passing through the bottleneck can be improved. The study is helpful for designing and planning pedestrian facilities involving pedestrian counter flow through the bottleneck and for evaluating the pedestrian efficiency of passing through a bottleneck. © 2014 Elsevier B.V.
