Xiamen University , colloquially known as Xia Da ". The university is one of many comprehensive universities directly administered by the Chinese Ministry of Education. In 1995 it was included in the list of the 211 Project for the state key construction; in 2000 it became one of China's higher-level universities designated for the state key construction of the 985 Project.According to University Undergraduates Teaching Assessment and Chinese Universities Evaluation Standings, the university is ranked 11th in China and has maintained the top 20 ranking in China, among which 6 subjects reach A++ level, including economics and management,fine art, law, chemistry, journalism, communication and mathematics.In addition,the school of management is accredited by EQUIS and AMBA.

Based on the no-outflow assumption, we investigate steady-state, axisymmetric, optically thin accretion flows in spherical coordinates. By comparing the vertically integrated advective cooling rate with the viscous heating rate, we find that the former is generally less than 30% of the latter, which indicates that the advective cooling itself cannot balance the viscous heating. As a consequence, for radiatively inefficient flows with low accretion rates such as M ≲ 10-3 MEdd, where MEdd is the Eddington accretion rate, the viscous heating rate will be larger than the sum of the advective cooling rate and the radiative cooling one. Thus, no thermal equilibrium can be established under the no-outflow assumption. We therefore argue that in such cases outflows ought to occur and take away more than 70% of the thermal energy generated by viscous dissipation. Similarly, for optically thick flows with extremely large accretion rates such as M ≳ 10 MEdd, outflows should also occur owing to the limited advection and the low efficiency of radiative cooling. Our results may help to understand the mechanism of outflows found in observations and numerical simulations. © 2015. The American Astronomical Society. All rights reserved. Source

The present invention relates to a method for quantitative detection of anti-HBc and its use in monitoring disease progression of chronic hepatitis B patients and predicting therapeutic effects. By quantitative detection of antibodies against hepatitis B core protein (Anti-HBc), it is able to monitor disease progression of chronic hepatitis B patients, effectively predict therapeutic effects in chronic hepatitis B patients who accept a therapy against hepatitis B virus (especially, a therapy based on interferon and a therapy based on nucleoside/nucleotide analogue anti-HBV drug), and thus guide the patients to reasonably choose drugs.
