In order to understand the effect of surface heat dissipation on thermocapillary convection of low Prandtl number in a shallow annular pool, a series of three-dimensional numerical simulations were carried out by using the finite volume method. Results indicate that with the increase of surface heat dissipation, the thermocapillary convection intensity increases at first, and then decreases slightly; furthermore, the center of the thermocapillary convective cell moves gradually to the hot outer wall. With the increase of Marangoni number, the stable axisymmetric flow bifurcates orderly to the three-dimensional steady flow and the three-dimensional oscillatory flow at a weak surface heat dissipation. However, it bifurcates directly to the three-dimensional oscillatory flow at a strong heat dissipation. After thermocapillary convection destabilizes, the hydrothermal waves appear at the weak surface heat dissipation, but the longitudinal rolls near the outer wall are dominant at the strong heat dissipation. The flow pattern transition is always accompanied by the variations of the temperature fluctuation amplitude, the oscillatory frequency and the wave number. © 2017 Elsevier Ltd

Symbolic expressions are essential resources for producing knowledge, yet they are a source of learning difficulties in chemistry education. This study aims to employ social semiotics to analyse the symbolic representation of chemistry from two complementary perspectives, referred to here as contextual (i.e., historical) and functional. First, the contextual account demonstrates that symbolism was introduced to represent compounds according to their elemental composition, to quantify chemistry, and to explain reactivity. Further to this, the functional analysis shows that symbolic expressions entail a range of unique grammatical resources to create specialised forms of knowledge, which cannot be made by natural language alone. It is found that historically the symbolic representation was not originally directly related to the submicroscopic domain, nor did it develop sufficient means to offer particulate explanations, although an indirect link could be set up between Berzelian formulae and the submicroscopic theoretical models. It is also found that understanding the quantitative aspects is a necessary but not sufficient condition for effective engagement with the symbolic representation of chemistry. Finally the present study discusses the pedagogic implications stemming from the social semiotic account of chemical symbolism. © 2016 The Royal Society of Chemistry.

Consider a supply chain involving one technology supplier and two manufacturers. The supplier provides a kind of production technology and its upgraded versions for manufacturers to produce products. The upgraded versions of production technology will reduce the unit production cost of manufacturers. Each manufacturer can adopt the existing version or wait for the upgraded versions. On this basis, this paper investigates the strategy of technology adoption for manufacturers, and establishes the Bertrand game model to analyze the price competition of manufacturers' products. The results show that the asymmetric Nash equilibrium can effective avoid the prisoner's dilemma of technology investment, and help to significantly improve the social welfare which consists of the technology supplier, manufacturers and consumers.

Basing on the general mechanism of reverse technology spillover of outward foreign direct investment (OFDI), this paper analyzes the mechanism of reverse technology spillover of Taiwan's direct investment in the service sector of the Chinese mainland and constructs an L-P correction model to examine the existence of the reverse technology spillover. The results show that: There is no obvious reverse technology spillover in Taiwan's current direct investment in the service sector of the Chinese mainland mainly because of the failure in achieving economies of scale or peeling off peripheral R&D technologies. In view of the problem, Taiwan should increase its direct investment in the service sector of the Chinese mainland, strengthen the cross-strait cooperation on the R&D of the service sector, and relocate more peripheral technology R&D departments to the Chinese mainland. © 2017 Techna Group Srl & ESMC Co., Ltd.

Although agritourism has been an important element in the growth of China's tourism and has developed dramatically in recent years, its spatial distribution pattern has not been known in detail. After tracking the historical development of agritourism in China, this paper presents the spatial distribution pattern of NADs (National Agritourism Demonstrations) in China and their spatial relationship to tourist origin based on the statistical analysis of 359 NADs in China designated by CNTA (China National Tourism Administration). It confirms that agritourism in China is mainly concentrated in eastern coastal provinces. The geographic association coefficient is applied to identify four agritourism clusters which exhibit tourist market orientation.

The impairment of financial assets occupies an important position in the subsequent measurement of financial assets, which plays an important role in reflecting the value of financial assets in the balance sheet. The expected loss model of financial assets impairment can be used to measure the value of financial assets, and the expected loss model is proposed by IASB and FASB. In this paper, by combing the developmental changes of the domestic and international financial asset impairment model, the advantages and disadvantages of the current financial asset impairment model were analyzed. By using normative research method, the expected loss model was improved and integrated in each stage. Evaluation of the expected loss model was made from the positive and negative aspects. The complexity of the model in the specific operational level was reduced, and the actual application of theoretical model was analyzed.

Huang L., Liu X. and Xu L. Regional innovation and spillover effects of foreign direct investment in China: a threshold approach, Regional Studies. Using a data set on twenty-nine Chinese provinces for the period 1985-2008, this paper establishes a threshold model to analyse the relationship between spillover effects of foreign direct investment (FDI) and regional innovation in China. There is clear evidence of double-threshold effects of regional innovation on productivity spillovers from FDI. Specifically, only when the level of regional innovation reaches the minimum innovation threshold will FDI in the region begin to produce positive productivity spillovers. Furthermore, positive productivity spillovers from FDI will be substantial only when the level of regional innovation attains a higher threshold. The double threshold divides Chinese provinces into three super-regions in terms of innovation, with most provinces positioned within the middle-level innovation super-region. Policy implications are discussed. © 2012 Copyright Regional Studies Association.

For the fusion problem of the multifocus images of the same scene, a novel scheme is proposed based on lifting stationary wavelet transform (LSWT) and a new m-channel pulse coupled neural network (PCNN). By using LSWT, we can calculate a flexible multiscale and shift-invariant representation of registered images. In order to overcome the shortcoming of PCNN which is not convenient and economical for a real system, a new m-channel PCNN is proposed and used to fuse the subband coefficients of LSWT. For choosing the low frequency subband coefficients, we take energy of Laplacian of image, which can effectively represent the salient features and sharp boundaries of image in LSWT domain, as input to motivate the m-channel PCNN. When choosing the bandpass subband coefficients, the local neighborhood sum of Laplacian (LNSL) measurement is introduced and taken as external stimulus to motivate the m-channel PCNN. The algorithm has been used to merge several sets of multi-focus images; both visual and quantitative analysis show that, comparing with conventional image fusion algorithms, the proposed approach can provide a more satisfactory fusion outcome. © 2011 by Binary Information Press.

The thesis examines the relationship between managerial ownership and firm performance for 66 samples of Chinese public State-owned enterprises (SOEs) privatized by doing Management Buyout (MBO) over the period from 1997 to 2009. The empirical results indicate that managerial ownership has a negative effect on firm performance. It also finds that firms with high managerial ownership exhibit a worse performance decline. The firms which are under High-low percentage managerial ownership provide a positive effect on OROA, NROA and Tobin's Q surprisingly. The relationship between managerial ownership and firm performance which occurs at High-low levels of managerial ownership experiences better performance compared to High and Low level. ©2011 IEEE.
