  2. Chebfun and numerical quadrature

    KAUST Repository

    Hale, Nicholas

    2012-07-24

    Chebfun is a Matlab-based software system that overloads Matlab\\'s discrete operations for vectors and matrices to analogous continuous operations for functions and operators. We begin by describing Chebfun\\'s fast capabilities for Clenshaw-Curtis and also Gauss-Legendre, -Jacobi, -Hermite, and -Laguerre quadrature, based on algorithms of Waldvogel and Glaser, Liu and Rokhlin. Then we consider how such methods can be applied to quadrature problems including 2D integrals over rectangles, fractional derivatives and integrals, functions defined on unbounded intervals, and the fast computation of weights for barycentric interpolation. © 2012 Science China Press and Springer-Verlag Berlin Heidelberg.

    Modern Tools to Perform Numerical DifferentiationThe original direct differential quadrature (DQ) method has been known to fail for problems with strong nonlinearity and material discontinuity as well as for problems involving singularity, irregularity, and multiple scales. But now researchers in applied mathematics, computational mechanics, and engineering have developed a range of innovative DQ-based methods to overcome these shortcomings. Advanced Differential Quadrature Methods explores new DQ methods and uses these methods to solve problems beyond the capabilities of the direct DQ method.After a basic introduction to the direct DQ method, the book presents a number of DQ methods, including complex DQ, triangular DQ, multi-scale DQ, variable order DQ, multi-domain DQ, and localized DQ. It also provides a mathematical compendium that summarizes Gauss elimination, the Runge-Kutta method, complex analysis, and more. The final chapter contains three codes written in the FORTRAN language, enabling readers to q...

    In the field of Engineering and Applied Mathematical Sciences, minimizing approximation error is very important task and therefore quadrature rules are investigated regularly. In this paper, using some standard results of theoretical inequalities, e.g. Ostrowski type inequality, some new efficient quadrature rules are introduced for n-times differentiable mappings. These quadrature rules are expected to give better results comparing to the conventional quadrature rules.

But this conclusion is violated for a Birkhoff quadrature formula. In this paper an extremal problem with Birkhoff interpolation constraints is discussed, from which a large class of Birkhoff quadrature formulas may be derived.

    Full Text Available Two conceptual developments in the Bayesian automatic adaptive quadrature approach to the numerical solution of one-dimensional Riemann integrals [Gh. Adam, S. Adam, Springer LNCS 7125, 1–16 (2012] are reported. First, it is shown that the numerical quadrature which avoids the overcomputing and minimizes the hidden floating point loss of precision asks for the consideration of three classes of integration domain lengths endowed with specific quadrature sums: microscopic (trapezoidal rule, mesoscopic (Simpson rule, and macroscopic (quadrature sums of high algebraic degrees of precision. Second, sensitive diagnostic tools for the Bayesian inference on macroscopic ranges, coming from the use of Clenshaw-Curtis quadrature, are derived.

  15. Theory of the quadrature elliptic birdcage coil.

    Science.gov (United States)

    Leifer, M C

    1997-11-01

    This paper presents the theory of the quadrature birdcage coil wound on an elliptic cylindrical former. A conformal transformation of the ellipse to a circular geometry is used to derive the optimal sampling of the continuous surface current distribution to produce uniform magnetic fields within an elliptic cylinder. The analysis is rigorous for ellipses of any aspect ratio and shows how to produce quadrature operation of the elliptic birdcage with a conventional hybrid combiner. Insight gained from the transformation is also used to analyze field homogeneity, find the optimal RF shield shape, and specify component values to produce the correct current distribution in practice. Measurements and images from a 16-leg elliptic birdcage coil at both low and high frequencies show good quadrature performance, homogeneity, and sensitivity.

Second, the scrutiny of the decay rates of the involved even and odd rank Chebyshev expansion coefficients with the increase of their rank labels enables the definition of Bayesian decision paths for the advancement to the numerical output.

    Institute of Scientific and Technical Information of China (English)

The error estimates of the formulas are obtained. It is found from the numerical examples that the convergence rate and the accuracy of the approximation results are satisfactory. Moreover, the rate and the accuracy can be improved by choosing appropriate weight functions.

  7. Efficient Quadrature Operator Using Dual-Perspectives-Fusion Probabilistic Weights

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Ashok Sahai

    2009-08-01

    Full Text Available A new quadrature formula has been proposed which uses weight functions derived using a probabilistic approach, and a rather-ingenious 'Fusion' of two dual perspectives. Unlike the complicatedly structured quadrature formulae of Gauss,Hermite and others of similar type, the proposed quadrature formula only needs the values of integrand at user-defined equidistant points in the interval of integration. The weights are functions of the impugned variable in the integrand, and are not mere constants. The quadrature formula has been compared empirically with the simple classical method of numerical integration using the well-known "Bernstein Operator". The percentage absolute relative errors for the proposed quadrature formula and that with the "Bernstein Operator" have been computed for certain selected functions and with different number of node points in the interval of integration. It has been observed that the proposed quadrature formula produces significantly better results.

    2005-01-01

    Numerical quadrature is an important ingredient of Galerkin meshless methods. A new numerical quadrature technique, partition of unity quadrature (PUQ),for Galerkin meshless methods was presented. The technique is based on finite covering and partition of unity. There is no need to decompose the physical domain into small cell. It possesses remarkable integration accuracy. Using Element-free Galerkin methods as example, Galerkin meshless methods based on PUQ were studied in detail. Meshing is always not required in the procedure of constitution of approximate function or numerical quadrature, so Galerkin meshless methods based on PUQ are "truly"meshless methods.

  16. Power flow control using quadrature boosters

    Science.gov (United States)

    Sadanandan, Sandeep N.

    A power system that can be controlled within security constraints would be an advantage to power planners and real-time operators. Controlling flows can lessen reliability issues such as thermal limit violations, power stability problems, and/or voltage stability conditions. Control of flows can also mitigate market issues by reducing congestion on some lines and rerouting power to less loaded lines or onto preferable paths. In the traditional control of power flows, phase shifters are often used. More advanced methods include using Flexible AC Transmission System (FACTS) Controllers. Some examples include Thyristor Controlled Series Capacitors, Synchronous Series Static Compensators, and Unified Power Flow Controllers. Quadrature Boosters (QBs) have similar structures to phase-shifters, but allow for higher voltage magnitude during real power flow control. In comparison with other FACTS controllers QBs are not as complex and not as expensive. The present study proposes to use QBs to control power flows on a power system. With the inclusion of QBs, real power flows can be controlled to desired scheduled values. In this thesis, the linearized power flow equations used for power flow analysis were modified for the control problem. This included modifying the Jacobian matrix, the power error vector, and calculating the voltage injected by the quadrature booster for the scheduled real power flow. Two scenarios were examined using the proposed power flow control method. First, the power flow in a line in a 5-bus system was modified with a QB using the method developed in this thesis. Simulation was carried out using Matlab. Second, the method was applied to a 30-bus system and then to a 118-bus system using several QBs. In all the cases, the calculated values of the QB voltages led to desired power flows in the designated line.

  17. Multilevel quadrature of elliptic PDEs with log-normal diffusion

    KAUST Repository

    Harbrecht, Helmut

    2015-01-07

    We apply multilevel quadrature methods for the moment computation of the solution of elliptic PDEs with lognormally distributed diffusion coefficients. The computation of the moments is a difficult task since they appear as high dimensional Bochner integrals over an unbounded domain. Each function evaluation corresponds to a deterministic elliptic boundary value problem which can be solved by finite elements on an appropriate level of refinement. The complexity is thus given by the number of quadrature points times the complexity for a single elliptic PDE solve. The multilevel idea is to reduce this complexity by combining quadrature methods with different accuracies with several spatial discretization levels in a sparse grid like fashion.

    Some structures of digital quadrature AD conversion for software-defined radio (SDR) systems are studied. Their performances and affections on the SDR systems are also analyzed. Two generalized quadrature AD schemes are proposed. In one of them, the AD sampling speed can be reduced by 2 times; and in the other both the output data rate of every channel and AD sampling speed can be lowered by paralleling the digital quadrature filtering structure. These structures can be also easily implemented into modules, and the polyphase filters can be flexibly realized by VHDL language based one chip of FPGA. To assess the proposed schemes, their applications to a particular ultra wideband (UWB) demonstrative receiver system are introduced. Some experimental results are also given. It is shown that the generalized quadrature AD structures are reliable and feasible for its module design, and performances are improved obviously for its better performance to price ratio.

    2010-01-01

    We discuss the possibility of generating noncritical quadrature squeezing by spontaneous polarization symmetry breaking. We consider first type-II frequency-degenerate optical parametric oscillators, but discard them for a number of reasons. Then we propose a four-wave mixing cavity in which the polarization of the output mode is always linear but has an arbitrary orientation. We show that in such a cavity complete noise suppression in a quadrature of the output field occurs, irrespective of the parameter values.

  6. Quadrature mixture LO suppression via DSW DAC noise dither

    Science.gov (United States)

    Dubbert, Dale F.; Dudley, Peter A.

    2007-08-21

    A Quadrature Error Corrected Digital Waveform Synthesizer (QECDWS) employs frequency dependent phase error corrections to, in effect, pre-distort the phase characteristic of the chirp to compensate for the frequency dependent phase nonlinearity of the RF and microwave subsystem. In addition, the QECDWS can employ frequency dependent correction vectors to the quadrature amplitude and phase of the synthesized output. The quadrature corrections cancel the radars' quadrature upconverter (mixer) errors to null the unwanted spectral image. A result is the direct generation of an RF waveform, which has a theoretical chirp bandwidth equal to the QECDWS clock frequency (1 to 1.2 GHz) with the high Spurious Free Dynamic Range (SFDR) necessary for high dynamic range radar systems such as SAR. To correct for the problematic upconverter local oscillator (LO) leakage, precision DC offsets can be applied over the chirped pulse using a pseudo-random noise dither. The present dither technique can effectively produce a quadrature DC bias which has the precision required to adequately suppress the LO leakage. A calibration technique can be employed to calculate both the quadrature correction vectors and the LO-nulling DC offsets using the radar built-in test capability.

    The mismatch of in-phase and quadrature channels in quadrature receiver affects and constrains radar detection performance in coherent radar. It is necessary to keep the in-phase and quadrature branches symmetrical. In this letter, an adaptive method to detect imbalance parameters is derived by means of evaluating channel errors from the received signal sequences.No matter how the bias degree of the gain and phase errors in I/Q channels are, the proposed adaptive scheme can obtain good calibration results. And the required calculations are only a few multiplications and additions. No need of a special test signal, the introduced method is simple to implement and easy to operate.

    The use of integral equation methods for the efficient numerical solution of PDE boundary value problems requires two main tools: quadrature rules for the evaluation of layer potential integral operators with singular kernels, and fast algorithms for solving the resulting dense linear systems. Classically, these tools were developed separately. In this work, we present a unified numerical scheme based on coupling Quadrature by Expansion, a recent quadrature method, to a customized Fast Multipole Method (FMM) for the Helmholtz equation in two dimensions. The method allows the evaluation of layer potentials in linear-time complexity, anywhere in space, with a uniform, user-chosen level of accuracy as a black-box computational method. Providing this capability requires geometric and algorithmic considerations beyond the needs of standard FMMs as well as careful consideration of the accuracy of multipole translations. We illustrate the speed and accuracy of our method with various numerical examples.

    The method of moments (MOM) is a statistically based alternative to sectional and modal methods for aerosol simulation. The MOM is highly efficient as the aerosol distribution is represented by its lower-order moments and only these, not the full distribution itself, are tracked during simulation. Quadrature is introduced to close the moment equations under very general growth laws and to compute aerosol physical and optical properties directly from moments. In this paper the quadrature method of moments (QMOM) is used in a bivariate test tracking of aerosol mixing state. Two aerosol populations, one enriched in soot and the other in sulfate, are allowed to interact through coagulation to form a generally-mixed third particle population. Quadratures of varying complexity (including two candidate schemes for use in climate models) are described and compared with benchmark results obtained by using particle-resolved simulation. Low-order quadratures are found to be highly accurate, and Gauss and Gauss-Radau quadratures appear to give nested lower and upper bounds, respectively, to aerosol mixing rate. These results suggest that the QMOM makes it feasible to represent the generallymixed states of aerosols and track their evolution in climate models.

  10. Bell's inequality for systems with quadrature phase coherence

    1990-07-01

    We show that a violation of Bell's inequalities by quadrature phase measurements is not due to the interference of the two photons in a photon pair state. Rather the violation predicted by Grangier et al. for a parametric down-converter is due to the interference of the photon pair state with the vacuum. We propose new sources which violate the quadrature phase Bell's inequalities, including one which employs squeezed light and another which demonstrates the non-local properties of a single photon state.

  11. Analytical Formulae for Two of A. H. Stroud's Quadrature Rules

    2009-01-01

    Analytical formulae for the points and weights of two fifth-order quadrature rules for C_3, the 3-cube, are given. The rules, originally formulated by A. H. Stroud in 1967, are discussed in greater detail in terms of both the setup of the basic equations and the method of obtaining their solutions analytically. The primary purpose of this paper is to better document what we feel is a particularly practical quadrature rule (e.g. in finite element calculations) and one for which we felt comprehensive information was scarce.

The phase distribution is characterized by the relative entropy--a nonlinear functional of input quantum state. As an explicit example the multiple measurement of quadrature operator is interpreted as quantum phase detection achieving the ultimate resolution predicted by the Fisher information.

  19. Quadrature-based Lattice Boltzmann Model for Relativistic Flows

    CERN Document Server

    2016-01-01

    A quadrature-based finite-difference lattice Boltzmann model is developed that is suitable for simulating relativistic flows of massless particles. We briefly review the relativistc Boltzmann equation and present our model. The quadrature is constructed such that the stress-energy tensor is obtained as a second order moment of the distribution function. The results obtained with our model are presented for a particular instance of the Riemann problem (the Sod shock tube). We show that the model is able to accurately capture the behavior across the whole domain of relaxation times, from the hydrodynamic to the ballistic regime. The property of the model of being extendable to arbitrarily high orders is shown to be paramount for the recovery of the analytical result in the ballistic regime.

  1. Observation of Localized Multi-Spatial-Mode Quadrature Squeezing

    2015-07-01

    Full Text Available Quantum states of light can improve imaging whenever the image quality and resolution are limited by the quantum noise of the illumination. In the case of a bright illumination, quantum enhancement is obtained for a light field composed of many squeezed transverse modes. A possible realization of such a multi-spatial-mode squeezed state is a field which contains a transverse plane in which the local electric field displays reduced quantum fluctuations at all locations, on any one quadrature. Using a traveling-wave amplifier, we have generated a multi-spatial-mode squeezed state and showed that it exhibits localized quadrature squeezing at any point of its transverse profile, in regions much smaller than its size. We observe 75 independently squeezed regions. The amplification relies on nondegenerate four-wave mixing in a hot vapor and produces a bichromatic squeezed state. The result confirms the potential of this technique for producing illumination suitable for practical quantum imaging.

    Unconditionally stable higher-order accurate time step integration algorithms based on the differential quadrature method (DQM) for second-order initial value problems were applied and the quadrature rules of DQM, computing of the weighting coefficients and choices of sampling grid points were discussed. Some numerical examples dealing with the heat transfer problem, the second-order differential equation of imposed vibration of linear single-degree-of-freedom systems and double-degree-of-freedom systems, the nonlinear move differential equation and a beam forced by a changing load were computed,respectively. The results indicated that the algorithm can produce highly accurate solutions with minimal time consumption, and that the system total energy can remain conservative in the numerical computation.

    De Siena, S; Illuminati, F; Siena, Silvio De; Lisi, Antonio Di; Illuminati, Fabrizio

    2001-01-01

    We introduce a linear, canonical transformation of the fundamental single--mode field operators $a$ and $a^{\\dagger}$ that generalizes the linear Bogoliubov transformation familiar in the construction of the harmonic oscillator squeezed states. This generalization is obtained by adding to the linear transformation a nonlinear function of any of the fundamental quadrature operators $X_{1}$ and $X_{2}$, making the original Bogoliubov transformation quadrature--dependent. Remarkably, the conditions of canonicity do not impose any constraint on the form of the nonlinear function, and lead to a set of nontrivial algebraic relations between the $c$--number coefficients of the transformation. We examine in detail the structure and the properties of the new quantum states defined as eigenvectors of the transformed annihilation operator $b$. These eigenvectors define a class of multiphoton squeezed states. The structure of the uncertainty products and of the quasiprobability distributions in phase space shows that bes...

  9. Quadrature two-dimensional correlation spectroscopy (Q-2DCOS)

    Science.gov (United States)

    Noda, Isao

    2016-11-01

    Quadrature 2D correlation spectroscopy (Q-2DCOS) is introduced. The technique incorporates the effect of the perturbation into the traditional 2DCOS analysis by building a multivariate model, merging the information of the perturbation variable and spectral responses. By employing factors which are 90° out of phase with each other, pertinent coincidental and sequential spectral intensity variations are adequately captured for the subsequent 2D correlation analysis. Almost complete replication of the original 2DCOS results based on such a simple rank 2 model of experimental spectra suggests that only the dominant spectral intensity variation patterns in combination with its quadrature counterpart seems to be utilized in 2DCOS analysis. Using the linear perturbation variable itself as the basis for generating the primary score vector is equivalent to the least squares fitting of a quadratic polynomial with spectral intensity variations. Q-2DCOS analysis may be displayed in terms of a graphical plot on a phase plane in the vector space, so that coincidental and sequential matching of the patterns of spectral intensity variations is represented simply by the phase angle difference between two vectors. Q-2DCOS analysis is closely related to other established ideas and practices in the 2D correlation spectroscopy field, such as dynamic 2D IR dichroism, PCA 2D, quadrature orthogonal signal correction (Q-OSC), and perturbation correlation moving window (PCMW) analyses.

    2010-01-01

    Following the seminal work of F. Bouchut on zero pressure gas dynamics which has been extensively used for gas particle-flows, the present contribution investigates quadrature-based velocity moments models for kinetic equations in the framework of the infinite Knudsen number limit, that is, for dilute clouds of small particles where the collision or coalescence probability asymptotically approaches zero. Such models define a hierarchy based on the number of moments and associated quadrature nodes, the first level of which leads to pressureless gas dynamics. We focus in particular on the four moment model where the flux closure is provided by a two-node quadrature in the velocity phase space and provide the right framework for studying both smooth and singular solutions. The link with both the kinetic underlying equation as well as with zero pressure gas dynamics is provided and we define the notion of measure solutions as well as the mathematical structure of the resulting system of four PDEs. We exhibit a fa...

    The empirical shock arrival (ESA) model was developed based on quadrature data from Helios (in-situ) and P-78 (remote-sensing) to predict the Sun-Earth travel time of coronal mass ejections (CMEs) [Gopalswamy et al. 2005a]. The ESA model requires earthward CME speed as input, which is not directly measurable from coronagraphs along the Sun-Earth line. The Solar Terrestrial Relations Observatory (STEREO) and the Solar and Heliospheric Observatory (SOHO) were in quadrature during 2010 - 2012, so the speeds of Earth-directed CMEs were observed with minimal projection effects. We identified a set of 20 full halo CMEs in the field of view of SOHO that were also observed in quadrature by STEREO. We used the earthward speed from STEREO measurements as input to the ESA model and compared the resulting travel times with the observed ones from L1 monitors. We find that the model predicts the CME travel time within about 7.3 hours, which is similar to the predictions by the ENLIL model. We also find that CME-CME and CME...

    2012-01-01

    An accurate and efficient differential quadrature time element method (DQTEM) is proposed for solving ordinary differential equations (ODEs),the numerical dissipation and dispersion of DQTEM is much smaller than that of the direct integration method of single/multi steps.Two methods of imposing initial conditions are given,which avoids the tediousness when derivative initial conditions are imposed,and the numerical comparisons indicate that the first method,in which the analog equations of initial displacements and velocities are used to directly replace the differential quadrature (DQ) analog equations of ODEs at the first and the last sampling points,respectively,is much more accurate than the second method,in which the DQ analog equations of initial conditions are used to directly replace the DQ analog equations of ODEs at the first two sampling points.On the contrary to the conventional step-by-step direct integration schemes,the solutions at all sampling points can be obtained simultaneously by DQTEM,and generally,one differential quadrature time element may be enough for the whole time domain.Extensive numerical comparisons validate the efficiency and accuracy of the proposed method.

  13. Statistical Quadrature Evolution for Continuous-Variable Quantum Key Distribution

    Gyongyosi, Laszlo; Imre, Sandor

    2016-05-01

    We propose a statistical quadrature evolution (SQE) method for multicarrier continuous-variable quantum key distribution (CVQKD). A multicarrier CVQKD protocol utilizes Gaussian subcarrier quantum continuous variables (CV) for information transmission. The SQE framework provides a minimal error estimate of the quadratures of the CV quantum states from the discrete, measured noisy subcarrier variables. We define a method for the statistical modeling and processing of noisy Gaussian subcarrier quadratures. We introduce the terms statistical secret key rate and statistical private classical information, which quantities are derived purely by the statistical functions of our method. We prove the secret key rate formulas for a multiple access multicarrier CVQKD. The framework can be established in an arbitrary CVQKD protocol and measurement setting, and are implementable by standard low-complexity statistical functions, which is particularly convenient for an experimental CVQKD scenario. This work was partially supported by the GOP-1.1.1-11-2012-0092 project sponsored by the EU and European Structural Fund, by the Hungarian Scientific Research Fund - OTKA K-112125, and by the COST Action MP1006.

Numerical experiments validating the theoretical results and the error estimates of the quadrature rules are also presented.

    Full Text Available How can one compute the sum of an infinite series \\(s := a_1 + a_2 + \\ldots\\? If the series converges fast, i.e., if the term \\(a_n\\ tends to \\(0\\ fast, then we can use the known bounds on this convergence to estimate the desired sum by a finite sum \\(a_1 + a_2 + \\ldots + a_n\\. However, the series often converges slowly. This is the case, e.g., for the series \\(a_n = n^{-t}\\ that defines the Riemann zeta-function. In such cases, to compute \\(s\\ with a reasonable accuracy, we need unrealistically large values \\(n\\, and thus, a large amount of computation. Usually, the \\(n\\-th term of the series can be obtained by applying a smooth function \\(f(x\\ to the value \\(n\\: \\(a_n = f(n\\. In such situations, we can get more accurate estimates if instead of using the upper bounds on the remainder infinite sum \\(R = f(n + 1 + f(n + 2 + \\ldots\\, we approximate this remainder by the corresponding integral \\(I\\ of \\(f(x\\ (from \\(x = n + 1\\ to infinity, and find good bounds on the difference \\(I - R\\. First, we derive sixth order quadrature formulas for functions whose 6th derivative is either always positive or always negative and then we use these quadrature formulas to get good bounds on \\(I - R\\, and thus good approximations for the sum \\(s\\ of the infinite series. Several examples (including the Riemann zeta-function show the efficiency of this new method. This paper continues the results from [W. Solak, Z.

    2003-01-01

    The recently proposed concept of the triangular differential quadrature method (TDQM) is applied to the bending analysis of Reissner plates with various curvilinear geometries subjected to various combinations of boundary conditions. A unit isosceles right triangle is used as the standard triangle for all the derivatives expressed using the triangular differential quadrature rule. Geometric transformations are introduced using basis functions to determine the weighting coefficients for the triangular differential quadrature to map an arbitrary curvilinear triangle into the standard triangle. The triangular differential quadrature method provides good accuracy and rapid convergence relative to other available exact and numerical results.

    Null quadrature domains are unbounded domains in $\\R^n$ ($n \\geq 2$) with external gravitational force zero in some generalized sense. In this paper we prove a quadratic growth estimate of the Schwarz potential of a null quadrature domain and conclude by a theorem of Caffarelli, Karp and Shahgolian that any null quadrature domain is the complement of a convex set with analytic boundary. Using this result we prove that a null quadrature domain with a non-zero upper Lebesgue density at infinity is half-space.

    2017-03-21

    We provide explicit quadrature rules for spaces of C1C1 quintic splines with uniform knot sequences over finite domains. The quadrature nodes and weights are derived via an explicit recursion that avoids numerical solvers. Each rule is optimal, that is, requires the minimal number of nodes, for a given function space. For each of nn subintervals, generically, only two nodes are required which reduces the evaluation cost by 2/32/3 when compared to the classical Gaussian quadrature for polynomials over each knot span. Numerical experiments show fast convergence, as nn grows, to the “two-third” quadrature rule of Hughes et al. (2010) for infinite domains.

    In digital microwave transmission, the nonlinear characteristics in a high power amplifier, such as a TWT (traveling-wave tube), inhibit efficient output use. This note introduces a new predistorter control technique, and assesses the nonlinear compensation capability of a third-order predistorter incorporating this technique. Concerning 16-QAM (quadrature amplitude modulation), a 10 dB reduction in out-of-band emission and larger than 8 dB C/N improvement with respect to symbol error rate can be achieved at 3 dB TWT average output power backoff.

    2013-01-01

    We present a pressure sensor based on a Michelson interferometer, for use in photoacoustic tomography. Quadrature phase detection is employed allowing measurement at any point on the mirror surface without having to retune the interferometer, as is typically required by Fabry-Perot type detectors. This opens the door to rapid full surface detection, which is necessary for clinical applications. Theory relating acoustic pressure to detected acoustic particle displacements is used to calculate the detector sensitivity, which is validated with measurement. Proof-of-concept tomographic images of blood vessel phantoms have been taken with sub-millimeter resolution at depths of several millimeters.

    We present a comprehensive proof of the theorem that relates the weights and nodes of a Gaussian quadrature rule to its degree of precision. This level of detail is often absent in modern texts on numerical analysis. We show that the degree of precision is maximal, and that the approximation error in Gaussian quadrature is minimal, in a…

    Quadrature formulas are considered for classes of smooth functions Wpr, Bpr,(?) with bounded mixed derivative or difference. For the classes of functions indicated above, the result that quadrature formulas constructed with the help of number-theoretic methods are optimal (in the sense of order) is proved, and the optimal order of the error estimates is obtained.

  10. Multipole-preserving quadratures for discretization of functions

    CERN Document Server

    Genovese, Luigi

    2015-01-01

    Discretizing an analytic function on a uniform real-space grid is often done via a straightforward collocation method. This is ubiquitous in all areas of computational physics and quantum chemistry. An example in Density Functional Theory is given by the local external potential describing the interaction between ions and electrons. Also notable examples are given by the analytic functions defining compensation charges for range-separated electrostatic treatments. The accuracy of the collocation method used is therefore very important for the reliability of subsequent treatments like self-consistent field solutions of the electronic structure problems. When the real-space grid is too coarse, the collocation method introduces numerical artifacts typical of real-space treatments, like the so-called egg-box error, that may spoil the numerical stability of the description. We present in this paper a new quadrature scheme that is able to exactly preserve the multipoles of a given analytic function for a wide range...

  11. Design of an MRI quadrature-data acquisition card

    Institute of Scientific and Technical Information of China (English)

    2006-01-01

    A design of a quadrature-data acquisition card based on peripheral component interconnect (PCI) bus for mini-type magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) system is reported. It uses two high speed analog-to-digital converters (ADCs) to sample the MRI signals and two static random access memories (SRAMs) to store the data which will be read to the computer by PCI bus after sampling. All the logic control signals on the card are generated by the field programmable gate array (FPGA). The software Foundation3.1 is used to design the FPGA and achieve useful result after simulating and implementing. The card has some merits that normal commercial cards do not have. For example, the sampling parameters can be varied according to different pulse sequences.

  12. Increasing the Reliability of Adaptive Quadrature Using Explicit Interpolants

    CERN Document Server

    Gonnet, Pedro

    2010-01-01

    We present two new adaptive quadrature routines. Both routines differ from previously published algorithms in many aspects, most significantly in how they represent the integrand, how they treat non-numerical values of the integrand, how they deal with improper divergent integrals and how they estimate the integration error. The main focus of these improvements is to increase the reliability of the algorithms without significantly impacting their efficiency. Both algorithms are implemented in Matlab and tested using both the ``families'' suggested by Lyness and Kaganove and the battery test used by Gander and Gautschi and Kahaner. They are shown to be more reliable, albeit in some cases less efficient, than other commonly-used adaptive integrators.

  13. Two-step greedy algorithm for reduced order quadratures

    CERN Document Server

    Antil, Harbir; Herrmann, Frank; Nochetto, Ricardo H; Tiglio, Manuel

    2012-01-01

    We present an algorithm to generate application-specific, global reduced order quadratures (ROQ) for multiple fast evaluations of weighted inner products between parameterized functions. If a reduced basis (RB) or any other projection-based model reduction technique is applied, the dimensionality of integrands is reduced dramatically; however, the cost of evaluating the reduced integrals still scales as the size of the original problem. In contrast, using discrete empirical interpolation (DEIM) points as ROQ nodes leads to a computational cost which depends linearly on the dimension of the reduced space. Generation of a reduced basis via a greedy procedure requires a training set, which for products of functions can be very large. Since this direct approach can be impractical in many applications, we propose instead a two-step greedy targeted towards approximation of such products. We present numerical experiments demonstrating the accuracy and the efficiency of the two-step approach. The presented ROQ are ex...

  14. Single mode quadrature entangled light from room temperature atomic vapour

    CERN Document Server

    Wasilewski, W; Jensen, K; Madsen, L S; Krauter, H; Polzik, E S

    2009-01-01

    We analyse a novel squeezing and entangling mechanism which is due to correlated Stokes and anti-Stokes photon forward scattering in a multi-level atom vapour. Following the proposal we present an experimental demonstration of 3.5 dB pulsed frequency nondegenerate squeezed (quadrature entangled) state of light using room temperature caesium vapour. The source is very robust and requires only a few milliwatts of laser power. The squeezed state is generated in the same spatial mode as the local oscillator and in a single temporal mode. The two entangled modes are separated by twice the Zeeman frequency of the vapour which can be widely tuned. The narrow-band squeezed light generated near an atomic resonance can be directly used for atom-based quantum information protocols. Its single temporal mode characteristics make it a promising resource for quantum information processing.

  15. Quadrature Uncertainty and Information Entropy of Quantum Elliptical Vortex States

    CERN Document Server

    Banerji, Anindya; Singh, Ravindra Pratap; Chowdhury, Saurav; Bandyopadhyay, Abir

    2013-01-01

    We study the quadrature uncertainty of the quantum elliptical vortex state using the associated Wigner function. Deviations from the minimum uncertainty states were observed due to the absence of the Gaussian nature. In our study of the entropy, we noticed that with increasing vorticity, entropy increases for both the modes. We further observed that, there exists an optimum value of ellipticity which gives rise to maximum entanglement of the two modes of the quantum elliptical vortex states. A further increase in ellipticity reduces the entropy thereby resulting in a loss of information carrying capacity. We check the validity of the entropic inequality relations, namely the subaddivity and the Araki-Lieb inequality. The later was satisfied only for a very small range of the ellipticity of the vortex while the former seemed to be valid at all values.

    2011-09-01

    Full Text Available A log-domain current-mode quadrature sinusoidal oscillator based on lossless integrators is presented. The circuit is a direct realization of a first-order differential equation for obtaining the lossy and lossless integrators. Each of the log-domain lossless integrators is realized by using only NPN transistors and a grounded capacitor for achieving low-power and fast response. The proposed oscillator uses two-lossless integrator loop which can be electronically tuned through bias currents. A validated BJT model which is used in SPICE simulation operated from a single power supply as low as 2.5V. The oscillation frequency is controlled over four decades of frequency. The total harmonic distortions for two-phases QSO (12MHz is obtained around 0.93% which enables fully integrated in telecommunication systems. The proposed circuit is also suitable for high-frequency applications. Nonideality studies are included and PSpice simulation results confirm the theoretical results.

  17. Quadrature phase interferometer for high resolution force spectroscopy

    CERN Document Server

    Paolino, Pierdomenico; Bellon, Ludovic

    2013-01-01

    In this article, we present a deflection measurement setup for Atomic Force Microscopy (AFM). It is based on a quadrature phase differential interferometer: we measure the optical path difference between a laser beam reflecting above the cantilever tip and a reference beam reflecting on the static base of the sensor. A design with very low environmental susceptibility and another allowing calibrated measurements on a wide spectral range are described. Both enable a very high resolution (down to $2.5E-15 m/sqrt{Hz}$), illustrated by a thermal noise measurement on an AFM cantilever. A quick review shows that our precision is equaling or outperforming the best results reported in the literature, but for a much larger deflection range, up to a few microns.

    There is considerable interest in two-dimensional turbulent mixing layer, to name a few e.g. nature, combustion chamber, premixers of gas turbine combustor and many other technological applications. There features are the presence of large vortical structure, free turbulent characteristics, asymptotic behavior, faster growth rate. Some of the parameters that are known to affect the mixing layer behavior are investigated through the numerical models and experimental analysis during these past decades. A suitable solution for turbulent plane mixing layer requires the use of variable mesh size and an appropriate discretization scheme. The Generalized Differential Quadrature (GDQ) method is utilized to solve the problem. It can be a tool for evaluating the equations obtained for plane mixing layer. The present approach works well by refining mesh size, simplifying the calculation algorithms and less time for calculation anticipated. The numerical simulation is compared with the reported numerical and experimental results of others. (author)

  19. An integrated source of broadband quadrature squeezed light

    Hoff, Ulrich B; Andersen, Ulrik L

    2015-01-01

    An integrated silicon nitride resonator is proposed as an ultra-compact source of bright single-mode quadrature squeezed light at 850 nm. Optical properties of the device are investigated and tailored through numerical simulations, with particular attention paid to loss associated with interfacing the device. An asymmetric double layer stack waveguide geometry with inverse vertical tapers is proposed for efficient and robust fibre-chip coupling, yielding a simulated total loss of -0.75 dB/facet. We assess the feasibility of the device through a full quantum noise analysis and derive the output squeezing spectrum for intra-cavity pump self-phase modulation. Subject to standard material loss and detection efficiencies, we find that the device holds promises for generating substantial quantum noise squeezing over a bandwidth exceeding 1 GHz. In the low-propagation loss regime, approximately -7 dB squeezing is predicted for a pump power of only 50 mW.

    2016-11-01

    We performed complex conductivity measurements on 28 core samples from the hole drilled for the Humu´ula Groundwater Research Project (Hawai´i Island, HI, USA). The complex conductivity measurements were performed at 4 different pore water conductivities (0.07, 0.5, 1.0 or 2.0, and 10 S m-1 prepared with NaCl) over the frequency range 1 mHz to 45 kHz at 22 ± 1°C. The in-phase conductivity data are plotted against the pore water conductivity to determine, sample by sample, the intrinsic formation factor and the surface conductivity. The intrinsic formation factor is related to porosity by Archie's law with an average value of the cementation exponent m of 2.45, indicating that only a small fraction of the connected pore space controls the transport properties. Both the surface and quadrature conductivities are found to be linearly related to the cation exchange capacity of the material, which was measured with the cobalt hexamine chloride method. Surface and quadrature conductivities are found to be proportional to each other like for sedimentary siliclastic rocks. A Stern layer polarization model is used to explain these experimental results. Despite the fact that the samples contain some magnetite (up to 5% wt.), we were not able to identify the effect of this mineral on the complex conductivity spectra. These results are very encouraging in showing that galvanometric induced polarization measurements can be used in volcanic areas to separate the bulk from the surface conductivity and therefore to define some alteration attributes. Such a goal cannot be achieved with resistivity alone.

  2. Gaussian quadrature for splines via homotopy continuation: Rules for C2 cubic splines

    KAUST Repository

    Barton, Michael

    2015-10-24

    We introduce a new concept for generating optimal quadrature rules for splines. To generate an optimal quadrature rule in a given (target) spline space, we build an associated source space with known optimal quadrature and transfer the rule from the source space to the target one, while preserving the number of quadrature points and therefore optimality. The quadrature nodes and weights are, considered as a higher-dimensional point, a zero of a particular system of polynomial equations. As the space is continuously deformed by changing the source knot vector, the quadrature rule gets updated using polynomial homotopy continuation. For example, starting with C1C1 cubic splines with uniform knot sequences, we demonstrate the methodology by deriving the optimal rules for uniform C2C2 cubic spline spaces where the rule was only conjectured to date. We validate our algorithm by showing that the resulting quadrature rule is independent of the path chosen between the target and the source knot vectors as well as the source rule chosen.

    Chen, Sai; Xie, Chongjin; Zhang, Jie

    2015-03-23

    We propose an adaptive detection technique in super-Nyquist wavelength-division-multiplexed (WDM) polarization-division-multiplexed quadrature-phase-shift-keying (PDM-QPSK) systems, where a QPSK signal is digitally converted to a quadrature n-level polybinary signal followed by a MLSE detector at the receiver, and study the performance of quadrature-duobinary and quadrature four-level polybinary signals using this detection technique. We change the level of the quadrature-polybinary modulation at the coherent receiver according to the channel spacing of a super-Nyquist system. Numerical studies show that the best performance can be achieved by choosing different modulation levels at the receiver in adaption to the channel spacing. In the experiment, we demonstrate the transmission of 3-channel 112-Gbit/s PDM-QPSK signals at a 20-GHz channel spacing, which is detected as a quadrature four-level polybinary signal, with performance comparable to PDM 16-ary quadrature-amplitude modulation (16QAM) at the same bit rate.

    2009-08-31

    The influence of quadrature phase shift on the measured displacement error was experimentally investigated using a two-detector polarizing homodyne laser interferometer with a quadrature detection system. Common nonlinearities, including the phase-shift error, were determined and effectively corrected by a robust data-processing algorithm. The measured phase-shift error perfectly agrees with the theoretically determined phase-shift error region. This error is systematic, periodic and severely asymmetrical around the nominal displacement value. The main results presented in this paper can also be used to assess and correct the detector errors of other interferometric and non-interferometric displacement-measuring devices based on phase-quadrature detection.

    An implementation is presented of an uncontracted Rys quadrature algorithm for electron repulsion integrals, including up to g functions on graphical processing units (GPUs). The general GPU programming model, the challenges associated with implementing the Rys quadrature on these highly parallel emerging architectures, and a new approach to implementing the quadrature are outlined. The performance of the implementation is evaluated for single and double precision on two different types of GPU devices. The performance obtained is on par with the matrix-vector routine from the CUDA basic linear algebra subroutines (CUBLAS) library.

  6. Optimal displacement in apparent motion and quadrature models of motion sensing

    Science.gov (United States)

    Watson, Andrew B.

    1990-01-01

    A grating appears to move if it is displaced by some amount between two brief presentations, or between multiple successive presentations. A number of recent experiments have examined the influence of displacement size upon either the sensitivity to motion, or upon the induced motion aftereffect. Several recent motion models are based upon quadrature filters that respond in opposite quadrants in the spatiotemporal frequency plane. Predictions of the quadrature model are derived for both two-frame and multiframe displays. Quadrature models generally predict an optimal displacement of 1/4 cycle for two-frame displays, but in the multiframe case the prediction depends entirely on the frame rate.

    Simon, M. K.; Li, L.

    2003-08-01

    We show that MIL-STD shaped offset quadrature phase-shift keying (SOQPSK), a highly bandwidth-efficient constant-envelope modulation, can be represented in the form of a cross-correlated trellis-coded quadrature modulation, a generic structure containing both memory and cross-correlation between the in-phase and quadrature-phase channels. Such a representation allows identification of the optimum form of receiver for MIL-STD SOQPSK and at the same time, through modification of the equivalent I and Q encoders to recursive types, allows for it to be embedded as the inner code of a serial or parallel (turbo-like) concatenated coding structure together with iterative decoding.

  8. Effect of Correlated Non-Gaussian Quadratures on the Performance of Binary Modulations

    2011-01-01

    Full Text Available The received signal in many wireless communication systems comprises of the sum of waves with random amplitudes and random phases. In general, the composite signal consists of correlated nonidentical Gaussian quadrature components due to the central limit theorem (CLT. However, in the presence of a small number of random waves, the CLT may not always hold and the quadrature components may not be Gaussian distributed. In this paper, we assume that the fading environment is such that the quadrature components follow a correlated bivariate Student-t joint distribution. Then, we derive the envelope distribution of the received signal and obtain new expressions for the exact and high signal-to-noise (SNR approximate average BER for binary modulations. It also turns out that the derived envelope pdf approaches the Rayleigh and Hoyt distributions as limiting cases. Using the derived envelope pdf, we investigate the effect of correlated nonidentical quadratures on the error rate performance of digital communication systems.

    Cui, Junning; He, Zhangqiang; Jiu, Yuanwei; Tan, Jiubin; Sun, Tao

    2016-09-01

    The demand for minimal cyclic nonlinearity error in laser interferometry is increasing as a result of advanced scientific research projects. Research shows that the quadrature phase error is the main effect that introduces cyclic nonlinearity error, and polarization-mixing cross talk during beam splitting is the main error source that causes the quadrature phase error. In this paper, a new homodyne quadrature laser interferometer configuration based on nonpolarization beam splitting and balanced interference between two circularly polarized laser beams is proposed. Theoretical modeling indicates that the polarization-mixing cross talk is elaborately avoided through nonpolarizing and Wollaston beam splitting, with a minimum number of quadrature phase error sources involved. Experimental results show that the cyclic nonlinearity error of the interferometer is up to 0.6 nm (peak-to-valley value) without any correction and can be further suppressed to 0.2 nm with a simple gain and offset correction method.

    The recently proposed weak form quadrature element method (QEM) is applied to flexural and vibrational analysis of thin plates.The integrals involved in the variational description of a thin plate are evaluated by an efficient numerical scheme and the partial derivatives at the integration sampling points are then approximated using differential quadrature analogs.Neither the grid pattern nor the number of nodes is fixed,being adjustable according to convergence need.The C1 continuity conditions characterizing the thin plate theory are discussed and the robustness of the weak form quadrature element for thin plates against shape distortion is examined.Examples are presented and comparisons with analytical solutions and the results of the finite element method are made to demonstrate the convergence and computational efficiency of the weak form quadrature element method.It is shown that the present formulation is applicable to thin plates with varying thickness as well as uniform plates.

    Squeezed states of light are an important tool for optical measurements below the shot noise limit and for optical realizations of quantum information systems. Recently, squeezed vacuum states were deployed to enhance the shot noise limited performance of gravitational wave detectors. In most practical implementations of squeezing enhancement, relative fluctuations between the squeezed quadrature angle and the measured quadrature (sometimes called squeezing angle jitter or phase noise) are one limit to the noise reduction that can be achieved. We present calculations of several effects that lead to quadrature fluctuations, and use these estimates to account for the observed quadrature fluctuations in a LIGO gravitational wave detector. We discuss the implications of this work for quantum enhanced advanced detectors and even more sensitive third generation detectors.

    Kerr, Richard F.; Anderson, Martin E.

    2003-05-01

    We present the results of two studies investigating the optimal aperture configuration for maximized lateral blood flow velocity estimation using Heterodyned Spatial Quadrature. Our objective was to determine the maximum velocities that can be estimated at Doppler angles of 90 degrees and 60 degrees with a bias of less than 5% for both uniform scatterer motion in a tissue-mimicking phantom and blood-mimicking fluid circulated through a wall-less vessel flow phantom. Constant flow rates ranging from 3.0 to 18.0 ml/sec were applied in the flow phantom, producing expected peak velocities of 15.0 to 89.8 cm/sec under laminar flow conditions. Velocity estimates were obtained at each flow rate using 256 trials, with each trial consisting of an ensemble of 32 vectors. For an f/1 receive geometry with bi-lobed Hamming apodization, all peak flow velocities tested were estimated to within 5% of their expected values for both 90 degree and 60 degree Doppler angles. An f/2 receive geometry featuring bi-lobed Blackman apodization generally provided accurate lateral velocity estimates up to 71.9 cm/sec for a Doppler angle of 90 degrees, and accurate lateral component estimates up to 50.1 cm/sec for a 60 degree Doppler angle. The implications of these findings will be discussed.

  15. Sparse aerosol models beyond the quadrature method of moments

    Science.gov (United States)

    McGraw, Robert

    2013-05-01

    This study examines a class of sparse aerosol models derived from linear programming (LP). The widely used quadrature method of moments (QMOM) is shown to fall into this class. Here it is shown how other sparse aerosol models can be constructed, which are not based on moments of the particle size distribution. The new methods enable one to bound atmospheric aerosol physical and optical properties using arbitrary combinations of model parameters and measurements. Rigorous upper and lower bounds, e.g. on the number of aerosol particles that can activate to form cloud droplets, can be obtained this way from measurement constraints that may include total particle number concentration and size distribution moments. The new LP-based methods allow a much wider range of aerosol properties, such as light backscatter or extinction coefficient, which are not easily connected to particle size moments, to also be assimilated into a list of constraints. Finally, it is shown that many of these more general aerosol properties can be tracked directly in an aerosol dynamics simulation, using SAMs, in much the same way that moments are tracked directly in the QMOM.

    Two new classes of analytical solutions for hollow vortex equilibria are presented. One class involves a central hollow vortex, comprising a constant pressure region having non-zero circulation, surrounded by an n-polygonal array of point vortices with n⩾2. The solutions generalize the non-rotating polygonal point vortex configurations of Morikawa and Swenson (1971 Phys. Fluids 14 1058–73) to the case where the point vortex at the centre of the polygon is replaced by a hollow vortex. The results of Morikawa and Swenson would suggest that all equilibria for n≠3 will be linearly unstable to point vortex mode instabilities. However even the n = 3 case turns out to be unstable to a recently discovered displacement instability deriving from a resonance between the natural modes of an isolated circular hollow vortex. A second class of analytical solutions for periodic water waves co-travelling with a submerged point vortex row is also described. The analysis gives rise to new theoretical connections with free surface Euler flows with surface tension and, in particular, with Crapper's classical solutions for capillary water waves. It is pointed out that the equilibrium fluid regions found here have a mathematical interpretation as an abstract class of planar domains known as double quadrature domains. (ss 1)

  17. Axisymmetric Consolidation of Unsaturated Soils by Differential Quadrature Method

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Wan-Huan Zhou

    2013-01-01

    Full Text Available Axisymmetric consolidation in a sand drain foundation is a common problem in foundation engineering. In unsaturated soils, the excess pore-water and pore-air pressures simultaneously change during the consolidation procedure; and the solutions are not easy to obtain. The present paper uses the differential quadrature method (DQM for axisymmetric consolidation of unsaturated soils in a sand drain foundation. The radial seepage of sand drain foundation is considered based on the framework of Fredlund’s one-dimensional consolidation theory in unsaturated soils. With the use of Darcy’s law and Fick’s law, the polar governing equations of excess pore-air and pore-water pressures of axisymmetric consolidation are derived. By using DQM, the two governing equations are transformed into two sets of ordinary differential equations. Then the solutions of excess pore-water and pore-air pressures can be obtained by Rong-Kutta method. The DQM solution can be used to deal with the case of nonuniform initial pore-air and pore-water distributions. Finally, case studies are presented to investigate the behavior of axisymmetric consolidation of unsaturated soils. The convergence analysis and average degree of consolidation, the settlements in radial and vertical direction, and the effects of different initial excess pore pressure distributions are presented, and discussed in this paper.

  18. Numerical Evaluation of CPV Boundary Integrals with Symmetrical Quadrature Schemes

    Institute of Scientific and Technical Information of China (English)

    马杭; 徐凯宇

    2003-01-01

    Stemming from the definition of the Cauchy principal values (CPV) integrals, a newly developed symmetrical quadrature scheme was proposed in the paper for the accurate numerical evaluation of the singular boundary integrals in the sense of CPV encountered in the boundary element method. In the case of inner-element singularities, the CPV integrals could be evaluated in a straightforward way by dividing the element into the symmetrical part and the remainder(s). And in the case of end-singularities, the CPV integrals could be evaluated simply by taking a tangential distance transformation of the integrand after cutting out a symmetrical tiny zone around the singular point. In both cases, the operations are no longer necessary before the numerical implementation, which involves the dull routine work to separate out singularities from the integral kernels. Numerical examples were presented for both the two-and the three-dimensional boundary integrals in elasticity. Comparing the numerical results with those by other approaches demonstrates the feasibility and the effectiveness of the proposed scheme.

    2003-01-01

    In a recent paper (Buyarov V S, Lopez-Artes P, Martinez-Finkelshtein A and Van Assche W 2000 J. Phys. A: Math. Gen. 33 6549-60), an efficient method was provided for evaluating in closed form the information entropy of the Gegenbauer polynomials C sup ( suplambda sup ) sub n (x) in the case when lambda = l element of N. For given values of n and l, this method requires the computation by means of recurrence relations of two auxiliary polynomials, P(x) and H(x), of degrees 2l - 2 and 2l - 4, respectively. Here it is shown that P(x) is related to the coefficients of the Gaussian quadrature formula for the Gegenbauer weights w sub l (x) = (1 - x sup 2) sup l sup - sup 1 sup / sup 2 , and this fact is used to obtain the explicit expression of P(x). From this result, an explicit formula is also given for the polynomial S(x) = lim sub n sub-> subinfinity P(1 - x/(2n sup 2)), which is relevant to the study of the asymptotic (n -> infinity with l fixed) behaviour of the entropy.

    Full Text Available This paper focuses on the detailed design issues of a peculiar quadrature reduction method named system stiffness matrix diagonalization, whose key technology is the design and application of quadrature compensation patterns. For bulk silicon micro-gyroscopes, a complete design and application case was presented. The compensation principle was described first. In the mechanical design, four types of basic structure units were presented to obtain the basic compensation function. A novel layout design was proposed to eliminate the additional disturbing static forces and torques. Parameter optimization was carried out to maximize the available compensation capability in a limited layout area. Two types of voltage loading methods were presented. Their influences on the sense mode dynamics were analyzed. The proposed design was applied on a dual-mass silicon micro-gyroscope developed in our laboratory. The theoretical compensation capability of a quadrature equivalent angular rate no more than 412 °/s was designed. In experiments, an actual quadrature equivalent angular rate of 357 °/s was compensated successfully. The actual compensation voltages were a little larger than the theoretical ones. The correctness of the design and the theoretical analyses was verified. They can be commonly used in planar linear vibratory silicon micro-gyroscopes for quadrature compensation purpose.

  6. Nonuniform sampling of hypercomplex multidimensional NMR experiments: Dimensionality, quadrature phase and randomization

    2015-01-01

    Nonuniform sampling (NUS) in multidimensional NMR permits the exploration of higher dimensional experiments and longer evolution times than the Nyquist Theorem practically allows for uniformly sampled experiments. However, the spectra of NUS data include sampling-induced artifacts and may be subject to distortions imposed by sparse data reconstruction techniques, issues not encountered with the discrete Fourier transform (DFT) applied to uniformly sampled data. The characterization of these NUS-induced artifacts allows for more informed sample schedule design and improved spectral quality. The DFT–Convolution Theorem, via the point-spread function (PSF) for a given sampling scheme, provides a useful framework for exploring the nature of NUS sampling artifacts. In this work, we analyze the PSFs for a set of specially constructed NUS schemes to quantify the interplay between randomization and dimensionality for reducing artifacts relative to uniformly undersampled controls. In particular, we find a synergistic relationship between the indirect time dimensions and the “quadrature phase dimension” (i.e. the hypercomplex components collected for quadrature detection). The quadrature phase dimension provides additional degrees of freedom that enable partial-component NUS (collecting a subset of quadrature components) to further reduce sampling-induced aliases relative to traditional full-component NUS (collecting all quadrature components). The efficacy of artifact reduction is exponentially related to the dimensionality of the sample space. Our results quantify the utility of partial-component NUS as an additional means for introducing decoherence into sampling schemes and reducing sampling artifacts in high dimensional experiments.

  8. Discrete variable representation in electronic structure theory: quadrature grids for least-squares tensor hypercontraction.

    Science.gov (United States)

    Parrish, Robert M; Hohenstein, Edward G; Martínez, Todd J; Sherrill, C David

    2013-05-21

    We investigate the application of molecular quadratures obtained from either standard Becke-type grids or discrete variable representation (DVR) techniques to the recently developed least-squares tensor hypercontraction (LS-THC) representation of the electron repulsion integral (ERI) tensor. LS-THC uses least-squares fitting to renormalize a two-sided pseudospectral decomposition of the ERI, over a physical-space quadrature grid. While this procedure is technically applicable with any choice of grid, the best efficiency is obtained when the quadrature is tuned to accurately reproduce the overlap metric for quadratic products of the primary orbital basis. Properly selected Becke DFT grids can roughly attain this property. Additionally, we provide algorithms for adopting the DVR techniques of the dynamics community to produce two different classes of grids which approximately attain this property. The simplest algorithm is radial discrete variable representation (R-DVR), which diagonalizes the finite auxiliary-basis representation of the radial coordinate for each atom, and then combines Lebedev-Laikov spherical quadratures and Becke atomic partitioning to produce the full molecular quadrature grid. The other algorithm is full discrete variable representation (F-DVR), which uses approximate simultaneous diagonalization of the finite auxiliary-basis representation of the full position operator to produce non-direct-product quadrature grids. The qualitative features of all three grid classes are discussed, and then the relative efficiencies of these grids are compared in the context of LS-THC-DF-MP2. Coarse Becke grids are found to give essentially the same accuracy and efficiency as R-DVR grids; however, the latter are built from explicit knowledge of the basis set and may guide future development of atom-centered grids. F-DVR is found to provide reasonable accuracy with markedly fewer points than either Becke or R-DVR schemes.

    The effects of in-phase/quadrature-phase (IQ) imbalances are evaluated with a direct IQ down-converter in the W-band (75-110 GHz). The IQ imbalance of the converter is measured within a range of +/-10 degrees in an intermediate frequency of DC-26.5 GHz. 1-8-G-baud quadrature phase-shift keying (QPSK) signals are transmitted successfully with observed bit error rates within a forward error correction limit of 2×10-3 using radio over fiber (RoF) techniques. The direct down-conversion technique is applicable to next-generation high-speed wireless access communication systems in the millimeter-wave band.

    In the framework of differential Galois theory we treat classical spectral problem $\\Psi''-u(x)\\Psi=\\lambda\\Psi$ and its finite-gap potentials as exactly solvable in quadratures by Picard-Vessiot without involving special functions (the ideology goes back to works by J. Drach 1919). From this standpoint we inspect known facts and obtain new ones: an important formula for Psi-function, differential properties of Jacobian theta-functions, and Theta-function extension of Picard-Vessiot fields. We show that duality between spectral and quadrature approaches is realized through the Weierstrass permutation theorem for a logarithmic Abelian integral.

The atmospheric models considered are those recently presented by Lenoble, with the exception that the authors have used Henyey-Greenstein phase functions in place of Mie.

    2013-11-01

    We study the numerical accuracy and computational efficiency of alternative formulations of the finite element solution procedure for the monodomain equations of cardiac electrophysiology, focusing on the interaction of spatial quadrature implementations with operator splitting and examining both nodal and Gauss quadrature methods and implementations that mix nodal storage of state variables with Gauss quadrature. We evaluate the performance of all possible combinations of 'lumped' approximations of consistent capacitance and mass matrices. Most generally, we find that quadrature schemes and lumped approximations that produce decoupled nodal ionic equations allow for the greatest computational efficiency, this being afforded through the use of asynchronous adaptive time-stepping of the ionic state variable ODEs. We identify two lumped approximation schemes that exhibit superior accuracy, rivaling that of the most expensive variationally consistent implementations. Finally, we illustrate some of the physiological consequences of discretization error in electrophysiological simulation relevant to cardiac arrhythmia and fibrillation. These results suggest caution with the use of semi-automated free-form tetrahedral and hexahedral meshing algorithms available in most commercially available meshing software, which produce nonuniform meshes having a large distribution of element sizes.

    Serbes, Gorkem; Aydin, Nizamettin

    Quadrature signals are dual-channel signals obtained from the systems employing quadrature demodulation. Embolic Doppler ultrasound signals obtained from stroke-prone patients by using Doppler ultrasound systems are quadrature signals caused by emboli, which are particles bigger than red blood cells within circulatory system. Detection of emboli is an important step in diagnosing stroke. Most widely used parameter in detection of emboli is embolic signal-to-background signal ratio. Therefore, in order to increase this ratio, denoising techniques are employed in detection systems. Discrete wavelet transform has been used for denoising of embolic signals, but it lacks shift invariance property. Instead, dual-tree complex wavelet transform having near-shift invariance property can be used. However, it is computationally expensive as two wavelet trees are required. Recently proposed modified dual-tree complex wavelet transform, which reduces the computational complexity, can also be used. In this study, the denoising performance of this method is extensively evaluated and compared with the others by using simulated and real quadrature signals. The quantitative results demonstrated that the modified dual-tree-complex-wavelet-transform-based denoising outperforms the conventional discrete wavelet transform with the same level of computational complexity and exhibits almost equal performance to the dual-tree complex wavelet transform with almost half computational cost.

  9. Entropy stable high order discontinuous Galerkin methods with suitable quadrature rules for hyperbolic conservation laws

    Science.gov (United States)

    Chen, Tianheng; Shu, Chi-Wang

    2017-09-01

    It is well known that semi-discrete high order discontinuous Galerkin (DG) methods satisfy cell entropy inequalities for the square entropy for both scalar conservation laws (Jiang and Shu (1994) [39]) and symmetric hyperbolic systems (Hou and Liu (2007) [36]), in any space dimension and for any triangulations. However, this property holds only for the square entropy and the integrations in the DG methods must be exact. It is significantly more difficult to design DG methods to satisfy entropy inequalities for a non-square convex entropy, and/or when the integration is approximated by a numerical quadrature. In this paper, we develop a unified framework for designing high order DG methods which will satisfy entropy inequalities for any given single convex entropy, through suitable numerical quadrature which is specific to this given entropy. Our framework applies from one-dimensional scalar cases all the way to multi-dimensional systems of conservation laws. For the one-dimensional case, our numerical quadrature is based on the methodology established in Carpenter et al. (2014) [5] and Gassner (2013) [19]. The main ingredients are summation-by-parts (SBP) operators derived from Legendre Gauss-Lobatto quadrature, the entropy conservative flux within elements, and the entropy stable flux at element interfaces. We then generalize the scheme to two-dimensional triangular meshes by constructing SBP operators on triangles based on a special quadrature rule. A local discontinuous Galerkin (LDG) type treatment is also incorporated to achieve the generalization to convection-diffusion equations. Extensive numerical experiments are performed to validate the accuracy and shock capturing efficacy of these entropy stable DG methods.

    High accuracy numerical quadrature methods for integrals of singular periodic functions are proposed. These methods are based on the appropriate Euler-Maclaurin expansions of trapezoidal rule approximations and their extrapolations. They are used to obtain accurate quadrature methods for the solution of singular and weakly singular Fredholm integral equations. Such periodic equations are used in the solution of planar elliptic boundary value problems, elasticity, potential theory, conformal mapping, boundary element methods, free surface flows, etc. The use of the quadrature methods is demonstrated with numerical examples.

  13. A fast integral equation method for solid particles in viscous flow using quadrature by expansion

    CERN Document Server

    Klinteberg, Ludvig af

    2016-01-01

    Boundary integral methods are advantageous when simulating viscous flow around rigid particles, due to the reduction in number of unknowns and straightforward handling of the geometry. In this work we present a fast and accurate framework for simulating spheroids in periodic Stokes flow, which is based on the completed double layer boundary integral formulation. The framework implements a new method known as quadrature by expansion (QBX), which uses surrogate local expansions of the layer potential to evaluate it to very high accuracy both on and off the particle surfaces. This quadrature method is accelerated through a newly developed precomputation scheme. The long range interactions are computed using the spectral Ewald (SE) fast summation method, which after integration with QBX allows the resulting system to be solved in M log M time, where M is the number of particles. This framework is suitable for simulations of large particle systems, and can be used for studying e.g. porous media models.

    Imperfections in quadrature modulators (QMs), such as inphase and quadrature (IQ) imbalance, can severely impact the performance of power amplifier (PA) linearization systems, in particular in adaptive digital predistorters (PDs). In this paper, we first analyze the effect of IQ imbalance on the performance of a memory orthogonal polynomials predistorter (MOP PD), and then we propose a new adaptive algorithm to estimate and compensate the unknown IQ imbalance in QM. Unlike previous compensation techniques, the proposed method was capable of online IQ imbalance compensation with faster convergence, and no special calibration or training signals were needed. The effectiveness of the proposed IQ imbalance compensator was validated by simulations. The results clearly show the performance of the MOP PD to be enhanced significantly by adding the proposed IQ imbalance compensator.

    2013-07-01

    We construct a lattice kinetic scheme to study electronic flow in graphene. For this purpose, we first derive a basis of orthogonal polynomials, using as the weight function the ultrarelativistic Fermi-Dirac distribution at rest. Later, we use these polynomials to expand the respective distribution in a moving frame, for both cases, undoped and doped graphene. In order to discretize the Boltzmann equation and make feasible the numerical implementation, we reduce the number of discrete points in momentum space to 18 by applying a Gaussian quadrature, finding that the family of representative wave (2+1)-vectors, which satisfies the quadrature, reconstructs a honeycomb lattice. The procedure and discrete model are validated by solving the Riemann problem, finding excellent agreement with other numerical models. In addition, we have extended the Riemann problem to the case of different dopings, finding that by increasing the chemical potential the electronic fluid behaves as if it increases its effective viscosity.

    This paper presents a low phase noise and low reference spur quadrature phase-locked loop (QPLL) circuit that is implemented as a part of a frequency synthesizer for China UWB standard systems.A glitch-suppressed charge pump (CP) is employed for reference spur reduction.By forcing the phase frequency detector and CP to operate in a linear region of its transfer function,the linearity of the QPLL is further improved.With the proposed series-quadrature voltage-controlled oscillator,the phase accuracy of the QPLL is guaranteed.The circuit is fabricated in the TSMC 0.13 μtm CMOS process and operated at 1.2-V supply voltage.The QPLL measures a phase noise of-95 dBc/Hz at 100-kHz offset and a reference spur of-71 dBc.The fully-integrated QPLL dissipates a current of 13 mA.

    We describe a simple and efficient setup to generate and characterize femtosecond quadrature-entangled pulses. Quantum correlations equivalent to about 2.5 dB squeezing are efficiently and easily reached using the non-degenerate parametric amplification of femtosecond pulses through a single-pass in a thin (0.1 mm) potassium niobate crystal. The entangled pulses are then individually sampled to characterize the non-separability and the entropy of formation of the states. The complete experiment is analysed in the time-domain, from the pulsed source of quadrature entanglement to the time-resolved homodyne detection. This particularity allows for applications in quantum communication protocols using continuous-variable entanglement.

In the proposed circuit, two oscillators with current-reused structure are coupled to each other by two P&N-MOS pairs. In this way, low phase noise quadrature signals are generated with low-voltage and low-power. The simulation is made by Cadence in chartered 0.18 μm CMOS process.

    Full Text Available This paper presents a method for the design of two-channel quadrature mirror filter (QMF banks with linear phase in frequency domain. Low-pass prototype filter of the QMF bank is implemented using polyphase decomposition. Prototype filter coefficients are optimized to minimize an objective function using eigenvalue-eigenvector approach without matrix inversion. The objective function is formulated as a weighted sum of four terms, pass-band error and stop-band residual energy of low-pass analysis filter, the square error of the overall transfer function at the quadrature frequency and amplitude distortion of the filter bank. The simulation results clearly show that the proposed method requires less computational efforts in comparison to the other state-of-art existing design methods.

    A method is developed to predict the buckling characteristics of an orthotropic shell of revolution of arbitrary meridian subjected to a normal pressure. The solution is given within the context of the linearized Sanders-Budiansky shell buckling theory and makes use of the differential quadrature method. Numerical results for buckling pressures and mode shapes are given for complete toroidal shells. Both completely free shells and shells with circumferential line restraints are covered. The loadings considered consist either of uniform pressure or circumferential bands of constant pressure. It is demonstrated that the differential quadrature method is numerically stable and converges. For isotropic toroidal shells, good agreement is observed with previously published analytical and finite element results. New results for buckling pressures and mode numbers are given for orthotropic shells and for band loaded shells.

    2011-08-01

    A parallel-coupled dual racetrack silicon micro-resonator structure is proposed and analyzed for M-ary quadrature amplitude modulation. The over-coupled, critically coupled, and under-coupled scenarios are systematically studied. Simulations indicate that only the over-coupled structures can generate arbitrary M-ary quadrature signals. Analytic study shows that the large dynamic range of amplitude and phase of a modulated over-coupled structure stems from the strong cross-coupling between two resonators, which can be understood through a delicate balance between the direct sum and the "interaction" terms. Potential asymmetries in the coupling constants and quality factors of the resonators are systematically studied. Compensations for these asymmetries by phase adjustment are shown feasible.

  3. Numerical quadrature for the approximation of singular oscillating integrals appearing in boundary integral equations

    2006-01-01

    Full Text Available Boundary Integral Equation formulations can be used to describe electromagnetic shielding problems. Yet, this approach frequently leads to integrals which contain a singularity and an oscillating part. Those integrals are difficult to handle when integrated naivly using standard integration techniques, and in some cases even a very high number of integration nodes will not lead to precise results. We present a method for the numerical quadrature of an integral with a logarithmic singularity and a cosine oscillator: a modified Filon-Lobatto quadrature for the oscillating parts and an integral transformation based on the error function for the singularity. Since this integral can be solved analytically, we are in a position to verify the results of our investigations, with a focus on precision and computation time.

  5. A General Quadrature Solution for Relativistic, Non-relativistic, and Weakly-Relativistic Rocket Equations

    CERN Document Server

    Bruce, Adam L

    2015-01-01

    We show the traditional rocket problem, where the ejecta velocity is assumed constant, can be reduced to an integral quadrature of which the completely non-relativistic equation of Tsiolkovsky, as well as the fully relativistic equation derived by Ackeret, are limiting cases. By expanding this quadrature in series, it is shown explicitly how relativistic corrections to the mass ratio equation as the rocket transitions from the Newtonian to the relativistic regime can be represented as products of exponential functions of the rocket velocity, ejecta velocity, and the speed of light. We find that even low order correction products approximate the traditional relativistic equation to a high accuracy in flight regimes up to $0.5c$ while retaining a clear distinction between the non-relativistic base-case and relativistic corrections. We furthermore use the results developed to consider the case where the rocket is not moving relativistically but the ejecta stream is, and where the ejecta stream is massless.

    We present a comprehensive nonlinear analysis of coupled oscillators and examine the trade-off between phase-noise of the oscillator and the quadrature precision. We show that asymmetry gives rise to amplitude and phase imbalance which are proportional to the inverse and inverse square......, respectively, of the relative coupling strength. It is shown that the level of AM-PM is determined by the nonlinearity of the coupling transconductance. The 3dB noise reduction in close-to-carrier phase-noise in quadrature oscillators due to mutual coupling is lost to the extra AM-PM noise for large coupling...... strengths. The additional contribution of the internal noise sources in the coupling circuit together with the AM-PM noise contribution explains why the 3dB noise reduction is rarely seen in measurements of this particular circuit....

The results show that spectral method is more accurate than DQM.

We employ here the one-loop order in QED and three-loop order in QCD evolution equations of the fermion mass renormalisation. Our present calculation is found to be new and also reliable when compared to the earlier values employed by various authors.

    Theoretical results are presented which show that noiseless phase quadrature amplification is possible, and limited experimentally only by the efficiency of the phase detection system. Experimental results obtained using a Nd:YAG laser show a signal gain of 10dB and a signal transfer ratio of T_s=0.9. This result easily exceeds the standard quantum limit for signal transfer. The results also explicitly demonstrate the phase sensitive nature of the amplification process.

    As usual, denote by KWr[a,b] the Sobolev class consisting of every function whose (r-1)th derivative is absolutely continuous on the interval [a,b] and rth derivative is bounded by K a.e. In [a,b]. For a function f ∈ KWr[a,b], its values and derivatives up to r-1 order at a set of nodes x are known. These values are said to be the given Hermite information.This work reports the results on the best quadrature based on the given Hermite information for the class KWr[a,b]. Existence and concrete construction issue of the best quadrature are settled down by a perfect spline interpolation. It turns out that the best quadrature depends on a system of algebraic equations satisfied by a set of free nodes of the interpolation perfect spline. From our another new result, it is shown that the system can be converted in a closed form to two single-variable polynomial equations, each being of degree approximately r/2. As a by-product,the best interpolation formula for the class KWr[a,b] is also obtained.

  14. A unified quadrature-based superconvergent finite element formulation for eigenvalue computation of wave equations

    Wang, Dongdong; Li, Xiwei; Pan, Feixu

    2016-11-01

    A simple and unified finite element formulation is presented for superconvergent eigenvalue computation of wave equations ranging from 1D to 3D. In this framework, a general method based upon the so called α mass matrix formulation is first proposed to effectively construct 1D higher order mass matrices for arbitrary order elements. The finite elements discussed herein refer to the Lagrangian type of Lobatto elements that take the Lobatto points as nodes. Subsequently a set of quadrature rules that exactly integrate the 1D higher order mass matrices are rationally derived, which are termed as the superconvergent quadrature rules. More importantly, in 2D and 3D cases, it is found that the employment of these quadrature rules via tensor product simultaneously for the mass and stiffness matrix integrations of Lobatto elements produces a unified superconvergent formulation for the eigenvalue or frequency computation without wave propagation direction dependence, which usually is a critical issue for the multidimensional higher order mass matrix formulation. Consequently the proposed approach is capable of computing arbitrary frequencies in a superconvergent fashion. Meanwhile, numerical implementation of the proposed method for multidimensional problems is trivial. The effectiveness of the proposed methodology is systematically demonstrated by a series of numerical examples. Numerical results revealed that a superconvergence with 2(p+1)th order of frequency accuracy is achieved by the present unified formulation for the pth order Lobatto element.

  15. Output field-quadrature measurements and squeezing in ultrastrong cavity-QED

    2016-12-01

    We study the squeezing of output quadratures of an electro-magnetic field escaping from a resonator coupled to a general quantum system with arbitrary interaction strengths. The generalized theoretical analysis of output squeezing proposed here is valid for all the interaction regimes of cavity-quantum electrodynamics: from the weak to the strong, ultrastrong, and deep coupling regimes. For coupling rates comparable or larger then the cavity resonance frequency, the standard input-output theory for optical cavities fails to calculate the variance of output field-quadratures and predicts a non-negligible amount of output squeezing, even if the system is in its ground state. Here we show that, for arbitrary interaction strength and for general cavity-embedded quantum systems, no squeezing can be found in the output-field quadratures if the system is in its ground state. We also apply the proposed theoretical approach to study the output squeezing produced by: (i) an artificial two-level atom embedded in a coherently-excited cavity; and (ii) a cascade-type three-level system interacting with a cavity field mode. In the latter case the output squeezing arises from the virtual photons of the atom-cavity dressed states. This work extends the possibility of predicting and analyzing the results of continuous-variable optical quantum-state tomography when optical resonators interact very strongly with other quantum systems.

    We report on multi-pass quadrature frequency conversion of high-energy and high-average-power lasers with high conversion efficiency for pumping high peak power, ultrashort pulse Ti:sapphire laser amplifiers. Using a four-pass quadrature second harmonic scheme with KTiOPO{sub 4} (KTP) crystals, we obtained an efficiency from a fundamental laser energy into a total second-harmonic laser energy in excess of 80% of a commercial Q-Switched 1064-nm Nd:YAG laser at a low input fundamental laser intensity of 76 MW/cm{sup 2}. For higher power operation, we employed a two-pass quadrature scheme with CsLiB{sub 6}O{sub 10} (CLBO) crystals. We obtained a total second-harmonic output pulse energy of 2.73 J from an input 1064-nm fundamental pulse energy of 3.27 J of a custom-built Q-switched 1064-nm Nd:YAG laser system at a fundamental laser intensity of 330 MW/cm{sup 2} at 10 Hz, corresponding to energy conversion efficiency of 83%. We discuss the details of the design and performance of this frequency conversion scheme in terms of output energy, conversion efficiency and scalability. (author)

    Full Text Available Since Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS signals span a wide range of frequency, wireless signals coming from other communication systems may be aliased and appear as image interference. In quadrature intermediate frequency (IF receivers, image aliasing due to in-phase and quadrature (I/Q channel mismatches is always a big problem. I/Q mismatches occur because of gain and phase imbalances between quadrature mixers and capacitor mismatches in analog-to-digital converters (ADC. As a result, the dynamic range and performance of a receiver are severely degraded. In this paper, several popular receiver architectures are summarized and the image aliasing problem is investigated in detail. Based on this analysis, a low-IF architecture is proposed for a single-chip solution and a novel and feasible anti-image algorithm is investigated. With this anti-image digital processing, the image reject ratio (IRR can reach approximately above 50 dB, which relaxes image rejection specific in front-end circuit designs and allows cheap and highly flexible analog front-end solutions. Simulation and experimental data show that the anti-image algorithm can work effectively, robustly, and steadily.

    2009-01-01

    We present a new numerical scheme for 2.5-D/3-D direct current resistivity modelling in heterogeneous, anisotropic media. This method, named the `Gaussian quadrature grid' (GQG) method, cooperatively combines the solution of the Variational Principle of the partial differential equation, Gaussian quadrature abscissae and local cardinal functions so that it has the main advantages of the spectral element method. The formulation shows that the GQG method is a modification of the spectral element method but does not employ the constant elements or require the mesh generator to match the Earth's surface. This makes it much easier to deal with geological models having a 2-D/3-D complex topography than using traditional numerical methods. The GQG technique can achieve a similar convergence rate to the spectral element method. We show it transforms the 2.5-D/3-D resistivity modelling problem into a sparse and symmetric linear equation system that can be solved by an iterative or matrix inversion method. Comparison with analytic solutions for homogeneous isotropic and anisotropic models shows that the error depends on the Gaussian quadrature order (abscissa number) and the subdomain size. The higher the order or the smaller the subdomain size that is employed, the more accurate are the results obtained. Several other synthetic examples, both homogeneous and inhomogeneous, incorporating sloping, undulating and severe topography, are presented and found to yield results comparable to finite element solutions involving a dense mesh.

  20. One point quadrature shell elements: a study on convergence and patch tests

    Cardoso, Rui P. R.; Yoon, Jeong-Whan

    2007-10-01

    One point quadrature shell elements are being widely used in the numerical simulation of shell structures, including sheet forming, because essentially of their computational efficiency. Nowadays, the purpose of using one point quadrature shell elements is not only related to computational efficiency but also because these elements have shown to be simultaneously robust and accurate in the simulation of complex sheet metal forming processes. The main objective of this work is to study the convergence behavior of different one-point quadrature shell elements and their ability to pass the membrane and bending patch tests. For comparison purposes, two new elements include a new formulation for the membrane strain field in order to further improve the membrane behavior of the element developed in previous work of (in Cardoso et al. Comput Meth Appl Mech Eng 191:5177, 2002). The original convective membrane strains of Cardoso et al. (Comput Meth Appl Mech Eng 191:5177, 2002) (in the stabilization matrices only) are thus replaced by new membrane strains, constructed directly at the co-rotational coordinate system (located at the element’s center). It is thus proved that with this new membrane formulation the elements pass now all the patch tests but, for warped (or curved) element geometries, their accuracy is not as good as the original element of (Cardoso et al. in Comput Meth Appl Mech Eng 191:5177, 2002) based on the convective coordinate system. In the numerical results presented in this paper, comprehensive comparison and discussion of these formulations are made for well known linear benchmark examples.

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    F. P. Santos

    2013-09-01

    Full Text Available Direct-quadrature generalized moment based methods were analysed in terms of accuracy, computational cost and robustness for the solution of the population balance problems in the [0,∞ and [0,1] domains. The minimum condition number of the coefficient matrix of their linear system of equations was obtained by global optimization. An heuristic scaling rule from the literature was also evaluated. The results indicate that the methods based on Legendre generalized moments are the most robust for the finite domain problems, while the DQMoM formulation that solves for the abscissas and weights using the heuristic scaling rule is the best for the infinite domain problems.

    The triangular differential quadrature method was used to analyze the free vibrations of moderately thick sectorial plates. A triangular serendipity transformation was introduced to map the sectorial domain onto a unit isosceles right triangle. The first six non-dimensional frequencies of the sectorial plates were obtained for various combinations of clamped and simply supported boundary conditions. For sectorial plates with simply supported radial edges, the present results agree well with the available exact solutions and finite element solutions, demonstrating the effectiveness of the method.

  5. Optimization of quadrature signal processing for laser interferometers for demanding applications

    2016-06-01

    Presented paper performs an analysis of quadrature signal processing algorithms for high demanding laser interferometry applications. Careful signal processing is required to minimize nonlinearities which come from optical path and components' imperfections, and reduce overall instrumental error. Paper focuses on algebraic fits, because implementation for real time systems was a main requirement. The most demanding applications are stationary measurements where the position slightly fluctuates in the range below one fringe period. Therefore, analysis was performed for samples that were spread along a few milliradians of a full circle.

    2010-01-01

    A semi-blind adaptive beamforming scheme is proposed for wireless systems that employ high-throughput quadrature amplitude modulation signalling. A minimum number of training symbols, equal to the number of receiver antenna array's elements, are first utilised to provide a rough initial least squares estimate of the beamformer's weight vector. A concurrent constant modulus algorithm and soft decision-directed scheme is then applied to adapt the beamformer. This semi-blind adaptive beamforming scheme is capable of converging fast to the minimum mean-square-error beamforming solution, as demonstrated in our simulation study.

    A method is developed to demodulate (velocity correct) Fourier transform spectrometer (FTS) data that is taken with an analog to digital converter that digitizes equally spaced in time. This method makes it possible to use simple low cost, high resolution audio digitizers to record high quality data without the need for an event timer or quadrature laser hardware, and makes it possible to use a metrology laser of any wavelength. The reduced parts count and simplicity implementation makes it an attractive alternative in space based applications when compared to previous methods such as the Brault algorithm.

    2009-12-01

    Full Text Available A new quadrature formula has been proposed which uses modified weight functions derived from those of ‘Bernstein Polynomial’ using a ‘Two-Phase Modification’ therein. The quadrature formula has been compared empirically with the simple method of numerical integration using the well-known “Bernstein Operator”. The percentage absolute relative errors for the proposed quadrature formula and that with the “Bernstein Operator” have been computed for certain selected functions, with different number of usual equidistant node-points in the interval of integration~ [0, 1]. It has been observed that both of the proposed modified quadrature formulae, respectively after the ‘Phase-I’ and after the ‘Phases-I & II’ of these modifications, produce significantly better results than that using, simply, the “Bernstein Operator”. Inasmuch as the proposed “Two-Phase Improvement” is available iteratively again-and-again at the end of the current iteration, the proposed improvement algorithm, which is ‘Computerizable’, is an “Iterative-Algorithm”, leading to more-and-more efficient “Quadrature-Operator”, till we are pleased!

    The deviation of wave plates' optical axes from their intended angles, which may result from either instability or assembly error, is the main cause of quadrature phase error in homodyne quadrature laser interferometers (HQLIs). The quadrature phase error sensitivity to wave plate angle deviations, which is an effective measure of HQLI robustness, is further amplified by beam splitter imperfections. In this paper, a new HQLI design involving non-polarization beam splitting is presented, and a method of making this HQLI robust by yawing the wave plates in the measurement and reference arms is proposed. The theoretical analysis results indicate that ultra-low quadrature phase error sensitivities to wave plate angle deviations can be realized and that non-polarizing beam splitter imperfections can be adequately compensated for. The experimental results demonstrate that the proposed method can reduce the quadrature phase error sensitivity by more than 1 order of magnitude, from a theoretical value of 1.4°/1° to 0.05°/1°.

    2006-01-01

    This paper describes a coherent optical receiver for demodulating optical quadrature phase-shift keying (QPSK) signals. At the receiver, a phase-diversity homodyne detection scheme is employed without locking the phase of the local oscillator (LO). To handle the carrier phase drift, the carrier phase is estimated with digital signal processing (DSP) on the homodyne-detected signal. Such a scheme presents the following major advantages over the conventional optical differential detection. First, its bit error rate (BER) performance is better than that of differential detection. This higher sensitivity can extend the reach of unrepeated transmission systems and reduce crosstalk between multiwavelength channels. Second, the optoelectronic conversion process is linear, so that the whole optical signal information can be postprocessed in the electrical domain. Third, this scheme is applicable to multilevel modulation formats such as M-array PSK and quadrature amplitude modulation (QAM). The performance of the receiver is evaluated through various simulations and experiments. As a result, an unrepeated transmission over 210 km with a 20-Gb/s optical QPSK signal is achieved. Moreover, in wavelength-division multiplexing (WDM) environment, coherent detection allows the filtering of a desired wavelength channel to reside entirely in the electrical domain, taking advantage of the sharp cutoff characteristics of electrical filters. The experiments show the feasibility to transmit polarization-multiplexed 40-Gb/s QPSK signals over 200 km with channel spacing of 16 GHz, leading to a spectral efficiency as high as 2.5 b/s/Hz.

  12. Electronically Tunable Quadrature Sinusoidal Oscillator with Equal Output Amplitudes during Frequency Tuning Process

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    2017-01-01

    Full Text Available A new configuration of voltage-mode quadrature sinusoidal oscillator is proposed. The proposed oscillator employs two voltage differencing current conveyors (VDCCs, two resistors, and two grounded capacitors. In this design, the use of multiple/dual output terminal active building block is not required. The tuning of frequency of oscillation (FO can be done electronically by adjusting the bias current of active device without affecting condition of oscillation (CO. The electronic tuning can be done by controlling the bias current using a digital circuit. The amplitude of two sinusoidal outputs is equal when the frequency of oscillation is tuned. This makes the sinusoidal output voltages meet good total harmonic distortions (THD. Moreover, the proposed circuit can provide the sinusoidal output current with high impedance which is connected to external load or to another circuit without the use of buffer device. To confirm that the oscillator can generate the quadrature sinusoidal output signal, the experimental results using VDCC constructed from commercially available ICs are also included. The experimental results agree well with theoretical anticipation.

  13. Finite Element Quadrature of Regularized Discontinuous and Singular Level Set Functions in 3D Problems

    2012-11-01

    Full Text Available Regularized Heaviside and Dirac delta function are used in several fields of computational physics and mechanics. Hence the issue of the quadrature of integrals of discontinuous and singular functions arises. In order to avoid ad-hoc quadrature procedures, regularization of the discontinuous and the singular fields is often carried out. In particular, weight functions of the signed distance with respect to the discontinuity interface are exploited. Tornberg and Engquist (Journal of Scientific Computing, 2003, 19: 527–552 proved that the use of compact support weight function is not suitable because it leads to errors that do not vanish for decreasing mesh size. They proposed the adoption of non-compact support weight functions. In the present contribution, the relationship between the Fourier transform of the weight functions and the accuracy of the regularization procedure is exploited. The proposed regularized approach was implemented in the eXtended Finite Element Method. As a three-dimensional example, we study a slender solid characterized by an inclined interface across which the displacement is discontinuous. The accuracy is evaluated for varying position of the discontinuity interfaces with respect to the underlying mesh. A procedure for the choice of the regularization parameters is proposed.

    2013-08-01

    This paper presents a novel dual-band quadrature voltage controlled oscillator (VCO) with the gain proportional to the oscillation frequency. Frequency synthesizers with this VCO can reduce the bandwidth fluctuation over all the frequency ranges without compensation or calibration. Besides the original switched capacitor array, an extra switched varactor array is adopted for the implementation of the proposed VCO. The tuning technique of changing the values of the capacitor and varactor at the same ratio is also derived. For verification purposes, a 2.5 G/3.5 G dual-band quadrature VCO is fabricated in a 0.13 μm CMOS process for WiMAX applications. Measurement results show that the VCO gain is closely proportional to the oscillation frequency with ±16% variation over the entire frequency range. The phase noise is -138.15 dBc/Hz at 10 MHz from the 2.5 GHz carrier and -137.44 dBc/Hz at 10 MHz from the 3.5 GHz carrier.

    2015-06-01

    Full Text Available Fractional calculus has recently been identified as a very important mathematical tool in the field of signal processing. Digital filters designed by fractional derivatives give more accurate frequency response in the prescribed frequency region. Digital filters are most important part of multi-rate filter bank systems. In this paper, an improved method based on fractional derivative constraints is presented for the design of two-channel quadrature mirror filter (QMF bank. The design problem is formulated as minimization of L2 error of filter bank transfer function in passband, stopband interval and at quadrature frequency, and then Lagrange multiplier method with fractional derivative constraints is applied to solve it. The proposed method is then successfully applied for the design of two-channel QMF bank with higher order filter taps. Performance of the QMF bank design is then examined through study of various parameters such as passband error, stopband error, transition band error, peak reconstruction error (PRE, stopband attenuation (As. It is found that, the good design can be obtained with the change of number and value of fractional derivative constraint coefficients.

  16. Quadrature demodulation based circuit implementation of pulse stream for ultrasonic signal FRI sparse sampling

    Shoupeng, Song; Zhou, Jiang

    2017-03-01

    Converting ultrasonic signal to ultrasonic pulse stream is the key step of finite rate of innovation (FRI) sparse sampling. At present, ultrasonic pulse-stream-forming techniques are mainly based on digital algorithms. No hardware circuit that can achieve it has been reported. This paper proposes a new quadrature demodulation (QD) based circuit implementation method for forming an ultrasonic pulse stream. Elaborating on FRI sparse sampling theory, the process of ultrasonic signal is explained, followed by a discussion and analysis of ultrasonic pulse-stream-forming methods. In contrast to ultrasonic signal envelope extracting techniques, a quadrature demodulation method (QDM) is proposed. Simulation experiments were performed to determine its performance at various signal-to-noise ratios (SNRs). The circuit was then designed, with mixing module, oscillator, low pass filter (LPF), and root of square sum module. Finally, application experiments were carried out on pipeline sample ultrasonic flaw testing. The experimental results indicate that the QDM can accurately convert ultrasonic signal to ultrasonic pulse stream, and reverse the original signal information, such as pulse width, amplitude, and time of arrival. This technique lays the foundation for ultrasonic signal FRI sparse sampling directly with hardware circuitry.

    2011-09-01

    Fokker-Planck equations which are nonlinear with respect to their probability densities and occur in many nonequilibrium systems relevant to mean field interaction models, plasmas, fermions and bosons can be challenging to solve numerically. To address some underlying challenges, we propose the application of the direct quadrature based method of moments (DQMOM) for efficient and accurate determination of transient (and stationary) solutions of nonlinear Fokker-Planck equations (NLFPEs). In DQMOM, probability density (or other distribution) functions are represented using a finite collection of Dirac delta functions, characterized by quadrature weights and locations (or abscissas) that are determined based on constraints due to evolution of generalized moments. Three particular examples of nonlinear Fokker-Planck equations considered in this paper include descriptions of: (i) the Shimizu-Yamada model, (ii) the Desai-Zwanzig model (both of which have been developed as models of muscular contraction) and (iii) fermions and bosons. Results based on DQMOM, for the transient and stationary solutions of the nonlinear Fokker-Planck equations, have been found to be in good agreement with other available analytical and numerical approaches. It is also shown that approximate reconstruction of the underlying probability density function from moments obtained from DQMOM can be satisfactorily achieved using a maximum entropy method.

    This paper presents a study of 1/f2 phase noise in quadrature oscillators built by connecting two differential LC-tank oscillators in a parallel fashion. The analysis clearly demonstrates the necessity of adopting a time-variant theory of phase noise, where a more simplistic, time......-invariant approach fails to explain numerical simulation results even at the qualitative level. Two topologies of 5-GHz parallel quadrature oscillators are considered, and compact but nevertheless highly general, closed-form formulas are derived for the phase noise caused by the losses in the LC...

  3. An efficient nonclassical quadrature for the calculation of nonresonant nuclear fusion reaction rate coefficients from cross section data

    Shizgal, Bernie D.

    2016-08-01

    Nonclassical quadratures based on a new set of half-range polynomials, Tn(x) , orthogonal with respect to w(x) =e - x - b /√{ x } for x ∈ [ 0 , ∞) are employed in the efficient calculation of the nuclear fusion reaction rate coefficients from cross section data. The parameter b = B /√{kB T } in the weight function is temperature dependent and B is the Gamow factor. The polynomials Tn(x) satisfy a three term recurrence relation defined by two sets of recurrence coefficients, αn and βn. These recurrence coefficients define in turn the tridiagonal Jacobi matrix whose eigenvalues are the quadrature points and the weights are calculated from the first components of the eigenfunctions. For nonresonant nuclear reactions for which the astrophysical function can be expressed as a lower order polynomial in the relative energy, the convergence of the thermal average of the reactive cross section with this nonclassical quadrature is extremely rapid requiring in many cases 2-4 quadrature points. The results are compared with other libraries of nuclear reaction rate coefficient data reported in the literature.

  5. Optimal quadrature rules for odd-degree spline spaces and their application to tensor-product-based isogeometric analysis

    KAUST Repository

    Barton, Michael

    2016-03-14

    We introduce optimal quadrature rules for spline spaces that are frequently used in Galerkin discretizations to build mass and stiffness matrices. Using the homotopy continuation concept (Bartoň and Calo, 2016) that transforms optimal quadrature rules from source spaces to target spaces, we derive optimal rules for splines defined on finite domains. Starting with the classical Gaussian quadrature for polynomials, which is an optimal rule for a discontinuous odd-degree space, we derive rules for target spaces of higher continuity. We further show how the homotopy methodology handles cases where the source and target rules require different numbers of optimal quadrature points. We demonstrate it by deriving optimal rules for various odd-degree spline spaces, particularly with non-uniform knot sequences and non-uniform multiplicities. We also discuss convergence of our rules to their asymptotic counterparts, that is, the analogues of the midpoint rule of Hughes et al. (2010), that are exact and optimal for infinite domains. For spaces of low continuities, we numerically show that the derived rules quickly converge to their asymptotic counterparts as the weights and nodes of a few boundary elements differ from the asymptotic values.

    Li, Hongsheng; Cao, Huiliang; Ni, Yunfang

    2014-07-01

    This paper proposes an electrostatic stiffness correction method for the quadrature error (QUER) in a decoupled dual-mass gyroscope structure. The QUER is caused by the imperfections during the structure manufacturing process, and the two masses usually have different QUERs. The harm contribution to the Coriolis signal is analyzed and quantified. The generating forms of QUER motion in both masses are analyzed, the correction electrodes' working principle is introduced, and a single mass individual correction method is proposed. The QUER stiffness correction system is designed based on a PI controller, and the experiments are arranged to verify the theoretical analysis. The bias stability decreases from 2.06 to 0.64 deg/h after the QUER correction, and the parameters of scale factor such as nonlinearly, asymmetry, and repeatability, reduce from 143, 557, and 210 ppm to 84, 242, and 175 ppm, respectively.

  7. Nonlinear free vibrations of curved double walled carbon nanotubes using differential quadrature method

    Cigeroglu, Ender; Samandari, Hamed

    2014-11-01

    Nonlinear free vibration analysis of curved double-walled carbon nanotubes (DWNTs) embedded in an elastic medium is studied in this study. Nonlinearities considered are due to large deflection of carbon nanotubes (geometric nonlinearity) and nonlinear interlayer van der Waals forces between inner and outer tubes. The differential quadrature method (DQM) is utilized to discretize the partial differential equations of motion in spatial domain, which resulted in a nonlinear set of algebraic equations of motion. The effect of nonlinearities, different end conditions, initial curvature, and stiffness of the surrounding elastic medium, and vibrational modes on the nonlinear free vibration of DWCNTs is studied. Results show that it is possible to detect different vibration modes occurring at a single vibration frequency when CNTs vibrate in the out-of-phase vibration mode. Moreover, it is observed that boundary conditions have significant effect on the nonlinear natural frequencies of the DWCNT including multiple solutions.

    Science.gov (United States)

    Das, Bhargab; Yelleswarapu, Chandra S; Rao, Dvgln

    2012-11-01

    We present a digital holography microscopy technique based on parallel-quadrature phase-shifting method. Two π/2 phase-shifted holograms are recorded simultaneously using polarization phase-shifting principle, slightly off-axis recording geometry, and two identical CCD sensors. The parallel phase-shifting is realized by combining circularly polarized object beam with a 45° degree polarized reference beam through a polarizing beam splitter. DC term is eliminated by subtracting the two holograms from each other and the object information is reconstructed after selecting the frequency spectrum of the real image. Both amplitude and phase object reconstruction results are presented. Simultaneous recording eliminates phase errors caused by mechanical vibrations and air turbulences. The slightly off-axis recording geometry with phase-shifting allows a much larger dimension of the spatial filter for reconstruction of the object information. This leads to better reconstruction capability than traditional off-axis holography.

    Based on the Reddy' s theory of plates with the effect of higher-order shear deformations, the governing equations for bending of orthotropic plates with finite deformations were established. The differential quadrature ( DQ ) method of nonlinear analysis to the problem was presented. New DQ approach, presented by Wang and Bert (DQWB), is extended to handle the multiple boundary conditions of plates. The techniques were also further extended to simplify nonlinear computations. The numerical convergence and comparison of solutions were studied. The results show that the DQ method presented is very reliable and valid. Moreover, the influences of geometric and material parameters as well as the transverse shear deformations on nonlinear bending were investigated.Numerical results show the influence of the shear deformation on the static bending of orthotropic moderately thick plate is significant.

Numerical simulations of the magnetic field of this coil array were performed at 170 MHz using the finite element method to study its behaviour. This coil array was developed for brain magnetic resonance imaging to be operated at the resonant frequency of 170 MHz in the transceiver mode and quadrature driven. Numerical simulations demonstrated that electromagnetic interaction between the coil elements is negligible, and that the magnetic field showed a good uniformity. Phantom images were acquired with our coil array and standard pulse sequences on a research-dedicated 4 Tesla scanner. In vitro images showed the feasibility of this coil array for standard pulses and high field magnetic resonance imaging.

    2003-01-01

    This paper proposes a new method for investigating the Hopf bifurcation of a curved pipe conveying fluid with nonlinear spring support. The nonlinear equation of motion is derived by forces equilibrium on microelement of the system under consideration. The spatial coordinate of the system is discretized by the differential quadrature method and then the dynamic equation is solved by the Newton-Raphson method. The numerical solutions show that the inner fluid velocity of the Hopf bifurcation point of the curved pipe varies with different values of the parameter,nonlinear spring stiffness. Based on this, the cycle and divergent motions are both found to exist at specific fluid flow velocities with a given value of the nonlinear spring stiffness. The results are useful for further study of the nonlinear dynamic mechanism of the curved fluid conveying pipe.

    We theoretically and experimentally study the principle of phase-sensitive frequency conversion in a highly-nonlinear fiber using three pump waves. This mechanism, originally demonstrated with four continuous-wave pumps and a signal wave, is based on four-wave mixing and enables to convert the two quadrature components of the signal to different frequencies. In this work, we derive a set of two simple equations to describe this mechanism and find analytic solutions. We show that only three pumps are required, instead of four as originally proposed. We give simple relations to determine the initial conditions for the power levels and the phases of the pumps. To validate this approach, we perform an experimental demonstration of the three-pump scheme and find excellent agreement with the theory.

    2014-04-01

    An alternative method for phase retrieval based on spatial and binary non-quadrature amplitude modulation (NQAM) is presented. This proposal is based on the superposition of a probe beam with a reference beam modulated in phase and amplitude (PAM) by NQAM, which is implemented by two neutral density filters (NDF) in a three-beam Mach-Zehnder interferometer (MZI). The principal advantage of this proposal lies in an analytical relationship between the variations of phase and visibility in an interferogram with the variations in the amplitudes of the reference beams used to implement NQAM; thus, the interferograms can be normalized and their introduced phase variations can be known from the measured intensities. Consequently it is possible to successfully retrieve the object phase. It is worthy to note that this method is capable of accepting that the phase and visibility variations in the interferograms could be spatial functions.

    A boundary element formulation is developed to determine the complex stress intensity factors associated with cracks on the interface between dissimilar materials. This represents an extension of the methodology developed previously by the authors for determination of free-edge generalized stress intensity factors on bi-material interfaces, which employs displacements and weighted tractions as primary variables. However, in the present work, the characteristic oscillating stress singularity is addressed through the introduction of complex weighting functions for both displacements and tractions, along with corresponding non-standard numerical quadrature formulas. As a result, this boundary-only approach provides extremely accurate mesh-independent solutions for a range of two-dimensional interface crack problems. A number of computational examples are considered to assess the performance of the method in comparison with analytical solutions and previous work on the subject. As a final application, the method ...

    This paper considers the performance evaluation of Staggered Quadrature Overlapped Raised Cosine (SQORC) signal transmission through wideband nonlinear satellite channels in the presence of uplink and downlink additive Gaussian noise. Expressions for the bit error rate are derived for a general transponder model with AM-AM and AM-PM conversion. It is shown that the bit error rate of SQORC is one-half of the sum of the bit error rate of MSK at 2/3 of the uplink signal-to-noise ratio and the bit error rate of Quadriphase Phase-Shift Keying QPSK at 4/3 of the uplink signal-to-noise ratio, whereas the spectrum of SQROC is the product of MSK and QPSK spectra. Numerical results are presented for a transponder which is modelled as a hard limiter.

    The concept of quantum-secure readout of Physical Unclonable Functions (PUFs) has recently been realized experimentally in an optical PUF system. We analyze the security of this system under the strongest type of classical attack: the challenge estimation attack. The adversary performs a measurement on the challenge quantum state in order to learn as much about it as he can. Using this knowledge, he then tries to reconstruct the challenge and to emulate the PUF. We consider quadrature measurements, which are the most informative practical measurements known to us. We prove that even under this attack the expected number of photons detected in the verification mechanism is approximately a factor S + 1 too low; here S is the Quantum Security Parameter, defined as the number of modes in the optical system divided by the number of photons in the challenge. The photon count allows for a reliable distinction between an authentic PUF and a challenge estimation attack.

    The solution of the so-called Canonical problems of neutron transport theory has been given by Case, who developed a method akin to the classical eigenfunction expansion procedure, extended to admit singular eigenfunctions. The solution is given as a set consisting of a Fredholm integral equation coupled with a transcendental equation, which has to be solved for the expansion coefficients by iteration. CASE's method make extensive use of the results of the theory of functions of a complex variable and many successful approaches to solve in an approximate form the above mentioned set have been reported in the literature. We present here an entirely different approach which deals with the canonical problems in a more direct and elementary manner. As far as we know, the original idea for the latter method is due to Carlvik who devised the escape probability approximation to the solution of the neutron transport equation in its integral form. In essence, the procedure consists in assuming a sectionally constant form of the neutron density that in turn yields a set of linear algebraic equations obeyed by the assumed constant values of the density. Very well established techniques of numerical analysis for the solution of integral equations consist in independent approaches that generalize the sectionally constant approach by assuming a sectionally low degree polynomial for the unknown function. This procedure also known as the arbitrary quadratures method is especially suited to deal with cases where the kernel of the integral equation is singular. The author wishes to present the results obtained with the arbitrary quadratures method for the numerical calculation of the monoenergetic neutron density in a critical, homogeneous sphere of finite radius with isotropic scattering. The singular integral equation obeyed by the neutron density in the critical sphere is introduced, an outline of the method's main features is given, and tables and graphs of the density

    The Gauss-Laguerre quadrature method is used on the Cartesian semiaxes in the momentum space to construct a family of lattice Boltzmann models. When all quadrature orders Qx, Qy, Qz equal N+1, the Laguerre lattice Boltzmann model LLB(Qx,Qy,Qz) exactly recovers all moments up to order N of the Maxwell-Boltzmann equilibrium distribution function f(eq), calculated over any Cartesian octant of the three-dimensional momentum space. Results of Couette flow simulations at Kn=0.1, 0.5, 1.0 and in the ballistic regime are reported. Specific microfluidic effects (velocity slip, temperature jump, longitudinal heat flux) are well captured up to Kn=0.5, as demonstrated by comparison to direct simulation Monte Carlo results. Excellent agreement with analytic results is obtained in the ballistic regime.

    2017-01-01

    The quadrature signal generation based phase-locked loops (QSG-PLLs) are highly popular for synchronization purposes in single-phase systems. The main difference among these PLLs often lies in the technique they use for creating the fictitious quadrature component. One of the easiest QSG approaches...... is delaying the original single-phase signal by a quarter of a cycle. The PLL with such QSG technique is often called the transfer delay based PLL (TD-PLL). The TD-PLL benefits from a simple structure, rather fast dynamic response, and a good detection accuracy when the grid frequency is at its nominal value......, but it suffers from a phase offset error and double frequency oscillatory error in the estimated phase and frequency in the presence of frequency drifts. In this paper, a simple yet effective approach to remove the aforementioned errors of the TD-PLL is proposed. The resultant PLL structure is called...

  3. A New Method to Derive Low-Lying N-dimensional Quantum Wave Functions by Quadratures Along a Single Trajectory

    Friedberg, R; Zhao Wei Qin

    2000-01-01

    We present a new method to derive low-lying N-dimensional quantum wave functions by quadrature along a single trajectory. The N-dimensional Schroedinger equation is cast into a series of readily integrable first order ordinary differential equations. Our approach resembles the familiar W.K.B. approximation in one dimension, but is designed to explore the classically forbidden region and has a much wider applicability than W.K.B.. The method also provides a perturbation series expansion and the Green's functions of the wave equation in N-dimension, all by quadratures along a single trajectory. A number of examples are given for illustration, including a simple algorithm to evaluate the Stark effect in closed form to any finite order of the electric field.

    Full Text Available In this paper, a modified cubic B-spline differential quadrature method (MCB-DQM is employed for the numerical simulation of two-space dimensional nonlinear sine-Gordon equation with appropriate initial and boundary conditions. The modified cubic B-spline works as a basis function in the differential quadrature method to compute the weighting coefficients. Accordingly, two dimensional sine-Gordon equation is transformed into a system of second order ordinary differential equations (ODEs. The resultant system of ODEs is solved by employing an optimal five stage and fourth-order strong stability preserving Runge–Kutta scheme (SSP-RK54. Numerical simulation is discussed for both damped and undamped cases. Computational results are found to be in good agreement with the exact solution and other numerical results available in the literature.

    2014-11-01

    Full Text Available In this paper, a numerical solution of two dimensional nonlinear coupled viscous Burger equation is discussed with appropriate initial and boundary conditions using the modified cubic B-spline differential quadrature method. In this method, the weighting coefficients are computed using the modified cubic B-spline as a basis function in the differential quadrature method. Thus, the coupled Burger equation is reduced into a system of ordinary differential equations. An optimal five stage and fourth-order strong stability preserving Runge–Kutta scheme is applied for solving the resulting system of ordinary differential equations. The accuracy of the scheme is illustrated by taking two numerical examples. Computed results are compared with the exact solutions and other results available in literature. Obtained numerical result shows that the described method is efficient and reliable scheme for solving two dimensional coupled viscous Burger equation.

    A microfabricated vibratory rate gyroscope to measure rotation includes two proof-masses mounted in a suspension system anchored to a substrate. The suspension has two principal modes of compliance, one of which is driven into oscillation. The driven oscillation combined with rotation of the substrate about an axis perpendicular to the substrate results in Coriolis acceleration along the other mode of compliance, the sense-mode. The sense-mode is designed to respond to Coriolis accelerationwhile suppressing the response to translational acceleration. This is accomplished using one or more rigid levers connecting the two proof-masses. The lever allows the proof-masses to move in opposite directions in response to Coriolis acceleration. The invention includes a means for canceling errors, termed quadrature error, due to imperfections in implementation of the sensor. Quadrature-error cancellation utilizes electrostatic forces to cancel out undesired sense-axis motion in phase with drive-mode position.

    Caves, C. M.; Schumaker, B. L.

    1985-01-01

    A new formalism for analyzing two-photon devices, such as parametric amplifiers and phase-conjugate mirrors, is proposed in part I, focusing on the properties and the significance of the quadrature-phase amplitudes and two-mode squeezed states. Time-stationary quasi-probability noise is also detailed for the case of Gaussian noise, and uncertainty principles for the quadrature-phase amplitudes are outlined, as well as some important properties of the two-mode states. Part II establishes a mathematical foundation for the formalism, with introduction of a vector notation for compact representation of two-mode properties. Fundamental unitary operators and special quantum states are also examined with an emphasis on the two-mode squeezed states. The results are applied to a previously studied degenerate limit (epsilon = 0).

    2004-01-01

    We present a quantum theory of nondegenerate phase-sensitive parametric amplification in a $\\chi^{(3)}$ nonlinear medium. The non-zero response time of the Kerr $(\\chi^{(3)})$ nonlinearity determines the quantum-limited noise figure of $\\chi^{(3)}$ parametric amplification, as well as the limit on quadrature squeezing. This non-zero response time of the nonlinearity requires coupling of the parametric process to a molecular-vibration phonon bath, causing the addition of excess noise through spontaneous Raman scattering. We present analytical expressions for the quantum-limited noise figure of frequency non-degenerate and frequency degenerate $\\chi^{(3)}$ parametric amplifiers operated as phase-sensitive amplifiers. We also present results for frequency non-degenerate quadrature squeezing. We show that our non-degenerate squeezing theory agrees with the degenerate squeezing theory of Boivin and Shapiro as degeneracy is approached. We have also included the effect of linear loss on the phase-sensitive process.

  11. Spectral Gauss quadrature method with subspace interpolation for Kohn-Sham Density functional theory

    Science.gov (United States)

    Wang, Xin

    Algorithms with linear-scaling ( (N)) computational complexity for Kohn-Sham density functional theory (K-S DFT) is crucial for studying molecular systems beyond thousands of atoms. Of the  (N) methods that use a polynomial-based approximation of the density matrix, the linear-scaling spectral Gauss quadrature (LSSGQ) method (Suryanarayana et al., JMPS, 2013) has been shown to exhibit the fastest convergence. The LSSGQ method requires a Lanczos procedure at every node in a real-space mesh, leading to a large computational pre-factor. We propose a new interpolation scheme specific to the LSSGQ method that lift the need to perform a Lanczos procedure at every node in the real-mesh. This interpolation will be referred to as subspace interpolation. The key idea behind subspace interpolation is that there is a large overlap in the Krylov-subspaces produced by the Lanczos procedures of nodes that are close in real-space. The subspace interpolation scheme takes advantage of the block-Lanczos procedure to group the Krylov-subspaces from a few representative nodes to approximate the density matrix over a large collection of nodes. Subspace interpolation outperforms cubic-spline interpolation by several orders of magnitude.

  12. Low Voltage Low Power Quadrature LC Oscillator Based on Back-gate Superharmonic Capacitive Coupling

    Ma, Minglin; Li, Zhijun

    2013-09-01

    This work introduces a new low voltage low power superharmonic capacitive coupling quadrature LC oscillator (QLCO) made by coupling two identical cross-connected LC oscillators without tail transistor. In each of the core oscillators, the back-gate nodes of the cross-coupled NMOS pair and PMOS pair, acting as common mode nodes, have been connected directly. Then the core oscillators are coupled together via capacitive coupling of the PMOS common mode node in one of the core oscillators to the NMOS common mode node in the other core oscillator, and vice versa. Only capacitors are used for coupling of the two core oscillators and therefore no extra noise sources are imposed on the circuit. Operation of the proposed QLCO was investigated with simulation using a commercial 0.18 µm RF CMOS technology: it shows a power dissipation of 5.2 mW from a 0.6 V supply voltage. Since the proposed core oscillator has Complementary NMOS and PMOS cross coupled pairs, and capacitive coupling method will not introduce extra phase noise, so this circuit can operate with a low phase noise as low as -126.8 dBc/Hz at 1 MHz offset from center oscillation frequency of 2.4 GHz, as confirmed with simulation.

    This article presents a new low-voltage bottom-series coupled quadrature voltage-controlled oscillator (QVCO), which consists of two n-core cross-coupled VCOs with the bottom-series coupling transistors. The low-voltage operation is obtained via an inductive gate voltage boosting technique.

The free-running frequency of the QVCO is tuneable from 3.77 to 4.12 GHz as the tuning voltage is varied from 0.0 to 0.7 V. The measured phase noise at 1 MHz frequency offset is -123.35 dBc/Hz at the oscillation frequency of 4.12 GHz and the figure of merit of the proposed QVCO is -193.5 dBc/Hz.

    Full Text Available A multi-band CMOS LC Quadrature Voltage Control Oscillator (QVCO with minimum power consumption is developed to meet the phase noise and frequency band requirements of RFID, Zigbee and Bluetooth standards. To accomplish the multi-band receiving architecture at low power consumption, current switching technique with optimized cross-coupled transistor sizes has been used. A comprehensive analysis of small signal model for complementary architecture including transistor noise sources and their effects on output phase noise amount has been discussed. Using extracted small signal model, coupled and coupling transistor sizes for minimum power consumption and the least achievable phase noise have been optimized. Designed QVCO has been implemented using TSMC 0.18um CMOS technology operating at 1.8V supply voltage. Proposed QVCO generates two separated frequency bands of 1.65-1.85GHz and 2.4-2.5GHz with phase noise of -125dBc/Hz at frequency offset of 3MHz. The total current drawn by QVCO is 7.5mA which makes the power consumption as low as 13.5mW.

    Dense Wavelength Division Multiplexing (DWDM) has recently gained great popularity as it provides a cost effective way to increase the transmission capacity of the existing fiber cable plant. For a long time, Dense WDM was exclusively used for baseband digital applications, predominantly in terrestrial long haul networks and in some cases in metropolitan and enterprise networks. Recently, the performance of DWDM components and frequency-stabilized lasers has substantially improved while the costs have down significantly. This makes a variety of new optical network architectures economically viable. The first commercial 8- wavelength DWDM system designed for Hybrid Fiber Coax networks was reported in 1998. This type of DWDM system utilizes Sub-Carrier Multiplexing (SCM) of Quadrature Amplitude Modulated (QAM) signals to transport IP data digital video broadcast and Video on Demand on ITU grid lightwave carriers. The ability of DWDM to provide scalable transmission capacity in the optical layer with SCM granularity is now considered by many to be the most promising technology for future transport and distribution of broadband multimedia services.

  16. Recursive, in-place algorithm for the hexagonal orthogonal oriented quadrature image pyramid

    1989-01-01

    Pyramid image transforms have proven useful in image coding and pattern recognition. The hexagonal orthogonal oriented quadrature image pyramid (HOP), transforms an image into a set of orthogonal, oriented, odd and even bandpass subimages. It operates on a hexagonal input lattice and employs seven kernels, each of which occupies a neighborhood consisting of a point and a hexagon of six nearest neighbors. The kernels consist of one lowpass and six bandpass kernels that are orthogonal, self-similar, and localized in space, spatial frequency, orientation, and phase. The kernels are first applied to the image samples to create the first level of the pyramid, then to the lowpass coefficients to create the next level. The resulting pyramid is a compact, efficient image code. Here, a recursive, in-place algorithm for computation of the HOP transform is described. The transform may be regarded as a depth-first traversal of a tree structure. It is shown that the algorithm requires a number of operations that is on the order of the number of pixels.

    A corner-cube retroreflector has the property that the optical path length for a reflected laser beam is insensitive to rotations about a mathematical point called its optical center (OC). This property is exploited in ballistic absolute gravity meters in which a proof mass containing a corner-cube retroreflector is dropped in a vacuum, and its position is accurately determined with a laser interferometer. In order to avoid vertical position errors when the proof mass rotates during free fall, it is important to collocate its center of mass (COM) with the OC of the retroreflector. This is commonly done using a mechanical scale-based balancing procedure, which has limited accuracy due to the difficulty in finding the exact position of the COM and the OC. This paper describes a novel way to achieve the collocation by incorporating the proof mass into a pendulum and using a quadrature interferometer to interrogate its apparent translation in its twist mode. The mismatch between the COM and OC generates a signal in a quiet part of the spectrum where no mechanical resonance exists. This allows us to tune the position of the COM relative to the OC to an accuracy of about 1 μm in all three axes. This provides a way to directly demonstrate that a rotation of the proof mass by several degrees causes an apparent translation in the direction of the laser beam of less than 1 nm. This technique allows an order of magnitude improvement over traditional methods of balancing.

  18. Harmonic Differential Quadrature Analysis of Soft-Core Sandwich Panels under Locally Distributed Loads

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    2016-11-01

    Full Text Available Sandwich structures are widely used in practice and thus various engineering theories adopting simplifying assumptions are available. However, most engineering theories of beams, plates and shells cannot recover all stresses accurately through their constitutive equations. Therefore, the soft-core is directly modeled by two-dimensional (2D elasticity theory without any pre-assumption on the displacement field. The top and bottom faces act like the elastic supports on the top and bottom edges of the core. The differential equations of the 2D core are then solved by the harmonic differential quadrature method (HDQM. To circumvent the difficulties in dealing with the locally distributed load by point discrete methods such as the HDQM, a general and rigorous way is proposed to treat the locally distributed load. Detailed formulations are provided. The static behavior of sandwich panels under different locally distributed loads is investigated. For verification, results are compared with data obtained by ABAQUS with very fine meshes. A high degree of accuracy on both displacement and stress has been observed.

    In photonic label routers, various optical signal processing functions are required; these include optical label extraction, recognition of the label, optical switching and buffering controlled by signals based on the label information and network routing tables, and label rewriting. Among these functions, we focus on photonic label recognition. We have proposed two kinds of optical waveguide circuits to recognize 16 quadrature amplitude modulation codes, i.e., recognition from the minimum output port and from the maximum output port. The recognition function was theoretically analyzed and numerically simulated by finite-difference beam-propagation method. We discuss noise tolerance in the circuit and show numerically simulated results to evaluate bit-error-rate (BER) characteristics against optical signal-to-noise ratio (OSNR). The OSNR required to obtain a BER less than 1.0×10-3 for the symbol rate of 2.5 GBaud was 14.5 and 27.0 dB for recognition from the minimum and maximum output, respectively.

    Recently, a round-robin differential phase-shift (RRDPS) protocol was proposed [Nature 509, 475 (2014)], in which the amount of leakage is bounded without monitoring the signal disturbance. Introducing states of the phase-encoded Bennett–Brassard 1984 protocol (PE-BB84) to the RRDPS, this paper presents another quantum key distribution protocol called round-robin differential quadrature phase-shift (RRDQPS) quantum key distribution. Regarding a train of many pulses as a single packet, the sender modulates the phase of each pulse by one of {0, π/2, π, 3π/2}, then the receiver measures each packet with a Mach–Zehnder interferometer having a phase basis of 0 or π/2. The RRDQPS protocol can be implemented with essential similar hardware to the PE-BB84, so it has great compatibility with the current quantum system. Here we analyze the security of the RRDQPS protocol against the intercept-resend attack and the beam-splitting attack. Results show that the proposed protocol inherits the advantages arising from the simplicity of the RRDPS protocol and is more robust against these attacks than the original protocol.

    A novel 16-channel fixed frequency Doppler backward scattering (DBS) reflectometer system has been developed on the HL-2A tokamak. This system is based on the filter-based feedback loop microwave source (FFLMS) technique, which has lower phase noise and lower power variation compared with present tunable frequency generation and comb frequency array generation techniques [J. C. Hillesheim et al. Rev. Sci. Instrum. 80, 083507 (2009) and W. A. Peebles et al. Rev. Sci. Instrum. 81, 10D902 (2010)]. The 16-channel DBS system is comprised of four × four-frequency microwave transmitters and direct quadrature demodulation receivers. The working frequencies are 17-24 GHz and 31-38 GHz with the frequency interval of 1 GHz. They are designed to measure the localized intermediate wave-number (k⊥ρ ˜ 1-2, k⊥ ˜ 2-9 cm-1) density fluctuations and the poloidal rotation velocity profile of turbulence. The details of the system design and laboratory tests are presented. Preliminary results of Doppler spectra measured by the multi-channel DBS reflectometer systems are obtained. The plasma rotation and turbulence distribution during supersonic molecular beam injection are analyzed.

    Li, L.; Simon, M. K.

    2004-02-01

    We show that, similar to the trellis-coded modulation representation of MIL-STD shaped offset quadrature phase-shift keying (SOQPSK), offset quadrature phase-shift keying (OQPSK) can be decomposed into a "degraded" trellis encoder and a memoryless mapper. Based on the representations of OQPSK and MIL-STD SOQPSK as trellis-coded modulations, we investigate the potential coding gains achievable from the application of simple outer codes to form a concatenated coding structure with iterative decoding. For MIL-STD SOQPSK, we describe the optimum receiver corresponding to its trellis-coded modulation form and then propose a simplified receiver. The bit-error-rate (BER) performances of both receivers for uncoded and coded MIL-STD SOQPSK are simulated and compared to those of OQPSK and Feher-patented quadrature phase-shift keying (FQPSK). The asymptotic BER performance of MIL-STD SOQPSK also is analyzed and compared to that of OQPSK and FQPSK. Simulation results show that, compared to their uncoded systems, both OQPSK and MIL-STD SOQPSK obtain significant coding gains by applying iterative decoding to either the parallel concatenated coding scheme or the serial one, even when very simple outer codes are used.

  3. A procedure to correct the effects of a relative delay between the quadrature components of radar signals at base band

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Grydeland

    2005-01-01

    Full Text Available The real and imaginary parts of baseband signals are obtained from a real narrow-band signal by quadrature mixing, i.e. by mixing with cosine and sine signals at the narrow band's selected center frequency. We address the consequences of a delay between the outputs of the quadrature mixer, which arise when digital samples of the quadrature baseband signals are not synchronised, i.e. when the real and imaginary components have been shifted by one or more samples with respect to each other. Through analytical considerations and simulations of such an error on different synthetic signals, we show how this error can be expected to afflict different measurements. In addition, we show the effect of the error on actual incoherent scatter radar data obtained by two different digital receiver systems used in parallel at the EISCAT Svalbard Radar (ESR. The analytical considerations indicate a procedure to correct the error, albeit with some limitations due to a small singular region. We demonstrate the correction procedure on actually afflicted data and compare the results to simultaneously acquired unafflicted data. We also discuss the possible data analysis strategies, including some that avoid dealing directly with the singular region mentioned above.

    This paper presents an improved merged architecture for a low-IF GNSS receiver frontend, where the bias current and functions are reused in a stacked quadrature LNA-mixer-VCO. Only a single spiral inductor is implemented for the LC resonator and an extra 1/2 frequency divider is added as the quadrature LO signal generator. The details of the design are presented. The gain plan and noise figure are discussed. The phase noise, quadrature accuracy and power consumption are improved. The test chip is fabricated though a 0.18 {mu}m RF CMOS process. The measured noise figure is 5.4 dB on average, with a gain of 43 dB and a IIP3 of -39 dBm. The measured phase noise is better than -105 dBc/Hz at 1 MHz offset. The total power consumption is 19.8 mW with a 1.8 V supply. The experimental results satisfy the requirements for GNSS applications. (semiconductor integrated circuits)

    We introduce Gaussian quadrature rules for spline spaces that are frequently used in Galerkin discretizations to build mass and stiffness matrices. By definition, these spaces are of even degrees. The optimal quadrature rules we recently derived (Bartoň and Calo, 2016) act on spaces of the smallest odd degrees and, therefore, are still slightly sub-optimal. In this work, we derive optimal rules directly for even-degree spaces and therefore further improve our recent result. We use optimal quadrature rules for spaces over two elements as elementary building blocks and use recursively the homotopy continuation concept described in Bartoň and Calo (2016) to derive optimal rules for arbitrary admissible numbers of elements.We demonstrate the proposed methodology on relevant examples, where we derive optimal rules for various even-degree spline spaces. We also discuss convergence of our rules to their asymptotic counterparts, these are the analogues of the midpoint rule of Hughes et al. (2010), that are exact and optimal for infinite domains.

    Prostate volume estimation from segmentation of transrectal ultrasound (TRUS) images aids in diagnosis and treatment of prostate hypertrophy and cancer. Computer-aided accurate and computationally efficient prostate segmentation in TRUS images is a challenging task, owing to low signal-to-noise ratio, speckle noise, calcifications, and heterogeneous intensity distribution in the prostate region. A multi-resolution framework using texture features in a parametric deformable statistical model of shape and appearance was developed to segment the prostate. Local phase information of log-Gabor quadrature filter extracted texture of the prostate region in TRUS images. Large bandwidth of log-Gabor filter ensures easy estimation of local orientations, and zero response for a constant signal provides invariance to gray level shift. This aids in enhanced representation of the underlying texture information of the prostate unaffected by speckle noise and imaging artifacts. The parametric model of the propagating contour is derived from principal component analysis of prior shape and texture information of the prostate from the training data. The parameters were modified using prior knowledge of the optimization space to achieve segmentation. The proposed method achieves a mean Dice similarity coefficient value of 0.95 ± 0.02 and mean absolute distance of 1.26 ± 0.51 millimeter when validated with 24 TRUS images of 6 data sets in a leave-one-patient-out validation framework. The proposed method for prostate TRUS image segmentation is computationally efficient and provides accurate prostate segmentations in the presence of intensity heterogeneities and imaging artifacts.

    Carbon-13 magnetic resonance spectroscopy ((13) C-MRS) is challenging because of the inherent low sensitivity of (13) C detection and the need for radiofrequency transmission at the (1) H frequency while receiving the (13) C signal, the latter requiring electrical decoupling of the (13) C and (1) H radiofrequency channels. In this study, we added traps to the (13) C coil to construct a quadrature-(13) C/quadrature-(1) H surface coil, with sufficient isolation between channels to allow simultaneous operation at both frequencies without compromise in coil performance. Isolation between channels was evaluated on the bench by measuring all coupling parameters. The quadrature mode of the quadrature-(13) C coil was assessed using in vitro (23) Na gradient echo images. The signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) was measured on the glycogen and glucose resonances by (13) C-MRS in vitro, compared with that obtained with a linear-(13) C/quadrature-(1) H coil, and validated by (13) C-MRS in vivo in the human calf at 7T. Isolation between channels was better than -30 dB. The (23) Na gradient echo images indicate a region where the field is strongly circularly polarized. The quadrature coil provided an SNR enhancement over a linear coil of 1.4, in vitro and in vivo. It is feasible to construct a double-quadrature (13) C-(1) H surface coil for proton decoupled sensitivity enhanced (13) C-NMR spectroscopy in humans at 7T. © 2014 Wiley Periodicals, Inc.

    A fully hardware-based real-time digital wideband quadrature demodulation processor based on the Hilbert transform is proposed to process ultrasound radio frequency signals. The presented architecture combines 2 finite impulse response (FIR) filters to process in-phase and quadrature signals and includes a piecewise linear approximation architecture that performs the required square root operations. The proposed implementation enables flexibility to support different transducers with its ability to load on-the-fly different FIR filter coefficient sets. The complexity and accuracy of the demodulator processor are analyzed with simulated RF data; a normalized residual sum-of-squares cost function is used for comparison with the Matlab Hilbert function. Three implementations are integrated into a hand-held ultrasound system for experimental accuracy and performance evaluation. Real-time images were acquired from a reference phantom, demonstrating the feasibility of using the presented architecture to perform real-time digital quadrature demodulation of ultrasonic signal echoes. Experimental results show that the implementation, using only 2942 slices and 3 dedicated digital multipliers of a low-cost and low-power field-programmable gate array (FPGA) is accurate relative to a comparable software- based system; axial and lateral resolution of 1 mm and 2 mm, respectively, were obtained with a 12-mm piezoelectric transducer without postprocessing. Because the processing and sampling rates are the same, high-frequency ultrasound signals can be processed as well. For a 15-frame-per-second display, the hand-held ultrasonic imaging-processing core (FPGA, memory) requires only 45 mW (dynamic) when using a 5-MHz single-element piezoelectric transducer.

    Instances of discrete quantum systems coupled to a continuum of oscillators are ubiquitous in physics. Often the continua are approximated by a discrete set of modes. We derive error bounds on expectation values of system observables that have been time evolved under such discretised Hamiltonians. These bounds take on the form of a function of time and the number of discrete modes, where the discrete modes are chosen according to Gauss quadrature rules. The derivation makes use of tools from the field of Lieb-Robinson bounds and the theory of orthonormal polynomials.

  11. Large eddy simulations of coal jet flame ignition using the direct quadrature method of moments

    Science.gov (United States)

    Pedel, Julien

    The Direct Quadrature Method of Moments (DQMOM) was implemented in the Large Eddy Simulation (LES) tool ARCHES to model coal particles. LES coupled with DQMOM was first applied to nonreacting particle-laden turbulent jets. Simulation results were compared to experimental data and accurately modeled a wide range of particle behaviors, such as particle jet waviness, spreading, break up, particle clustering and segregation, in different configurations. Simulations also accurately predicted the mean axial velocity along the centerline for both the gas phase and the solid phase, thus demonstrating the validity of the approach to model particles in turbulent flows. LES was then applied to the prediction of pulverized coal flame ignition. The stability of an oxy-coal flame as a function of changing primary gas composition (CO2 and O2) was first investigated. Flame stability was measured using optical measurements of the flame standoff distance in a 40 kW pilot facility. Large Eddy Simulations (LES) of the facility provided valuable insight into the experimentally observed data and the importance of factors such as heterogeneous reactions, radiation or wall temperature. The effects of three parameters on the flame stand-off distance were studied and simulation predictions were compared to experimental data using the data collaboration method. An additional validation study of the ARCHES LES tool was then performed on an air-fired pulverized coal jet flame ignited by a preheated gas flow. The simulation results were compared qualitatively and quantitatively to experimental observations for different inlet stoichiometric ratios. LES simulations were able to capture the various combustion regimes observed during flame ignition and to accurately model the flame stand-off distance sensitivity to the stoichiometric ratio. Gas temperature and coal burnout predictions were also examined and showed good agreement with experimental data. Overall, this research shows that high

    In this paper we investigate Faster-than-Nyquist Discrete-Fourier-Transform spread Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing (FTN-DFTs-OFDM) signaling which combines the features of both single carrier FTN and OFDM system. By introducing the quadrature duo-binary (QDB) filtering at the receiver side, the transmitted OFDM signal can be packed in a sub-Nyquist spacing, which improves the spectral efficiency (SE) compared to conventional detection schemes. Maximum a posteriori (MAP) and maximum likelihood sequence estimation (MLSE) criteria have been both used and compared to find an optimal equalization scheme for combating FTN multiplexing at transmitter side and QDB filtering at receiver side. The simulations result show that by applying QDB filtering at the receiver side, the back-to-back (BTB) required optical signal noise ratio (OSNR) at bit error rate (BER) of 1 × 10-2 is reduced by 1.5-dB for 20-GHz spaced 128-Gb/s polarization-division-multiplexed quadrature-phase-shift-keying (PDM-QPSK) signal, achieving a SE of 6.4-b/s/Hz.

    Full Text Available The use of quadrature RF magnetic fields has been demonstrated to be an efficient method to reduce transmit power and to increase the signal-to-noise (SNR in magnetic resonance (MR imaging. The goal of this project was to develop a new method using the common-mode and differential-mode (CMDM technique for compact, planar, distributed-element quadrature transmit/receive resonators for MR signal excitation and detection and to investigate its performance for MR imaging, particularly, at ultrahigh magnetic fields. A prototype resonator based on CMDM method implemented by using microstrip transmission line was designed and fabricated for 7T imaging. Both the common mode (CM and the differential mode (DM of the resonator were tuned and matched at 298MHz independently. Numerical electromagnetic simulation was performed to verify the orthogonal B1 field direction of the two modes of the CMDM resonator. Both workbench tests and MR imaging experiments were carried out to evaluate the performance. The intrinsic decoupling between the two modes of the CMDM resonator was demonstrated by the bench test, showing a better than -36 dB transmission coefficient between the two modes at resonance frequency. The MR images acquired by using each mode and the images combined in quadrature showed that the CM and DM of the proposed resonator provided similar B1 coverage and achieved SNR improvement in the entire region of interest. The simulation and experimental results demonstrate that the proposed CMDM method with distributed-element transmission line technique is a feasible and efficient technique for planar quadrature RF coil design at ultrahigh fields, providing intrinsic decoupling between two quadrature channels and high frequency capability. Due to its simple and compact geometry and easy implementation of decoupling methods, the CMDM quadrature resonator can possibly be a good candidate for design blocks in multichannel RF coil arrays.

    At the time of the spring 2003 Ulysses-SOHO-Sun quadrature, Ulysses was off the East limb of the Sun at 14.5 degrees north latitude and 4.91 AU. LASCO/C2 images show small transient events that originated from near the limb on May 25, 26 and 27 in the north-east quadrant, along with a large Coronal Mass Ejection (CME) that originated from an active region near disk center on May 26. Ulysses data bear clear signatures of the large CME, specifically including an enhanced abundance of highly ionized Fe. SOHO/UVCS spectra at 1.75 solar radii, near the radial direction to Ulysses, give no evidence of emission from high temperature lines, even for the large CME: instead, for the small events, occasional transient high emission in cool lines was observed, such as the CIII 977 Angstrom line usually absent at coronal levels. Each of these events lasted ca. 1 hour or less and never affected lines from ions forming above ca. 106K. Compact eruptions in Helium 304 Angstrom EIT images, related to the small UVCS transients, were observed at the limb of the Sun over the same period. At least one of these surge events produced a narrow CME observed in LASCO/C2. Most probably all these events are compact magnetic explosions (surges/jets, from around a small island of included polarity) which ejected cool material from lower levels. Ulysses data have been analyzed to find evidence of the cool, narrow CME events, but none or little was found. This puzzling scenario, where events seen by UVCS have no in situ counterparts and vice versa, can be partially explained once the region where the large CME originated is recognized as being at the center of the solar disk so that the CME material was actually much further from the Sun than the 1.7 Rsun height of the UVCS slit off the limb. Conversely, the narrow events may simply have missed Ulysses or been too brief for reliable signatures in composition and ionization state. A basic feature demonstrated by these observations is that large

    We applied complex linear minimum mean-squared-error equalization to spatially quadrature-amplitude-modulated signals in holographic data storage (HDS). The equalization technique can improve dispersion in constellation outputs due to intersymbol interference. We confirm the effectiveness of the equalization technique in numerical simulations and basic optical experiments. Our numerical results have shown that intersymbol interference of a retrieved signal in a HDS system can be improved by using the equalization technique. In our experiments, a mean squared error (MSE), which indicates the deviation from an ideal signal, has been used for quantitatively evaluating the dispersion of equalized signals. Our equalization technique has been able to improve the MSE. However, symbols in the equalized signal have remained inseparable. To further improve the MSE and make the symbols separable, reducing errors in repeated measurements is our future task.

  1. Ultrasonic study of adhesive bond quality at a steel-to-rubber interface by using quadrature phase detection techniques

    Smith, A. C.; Yang, H.

    1989-01-01

    The quadrature phase detection technique was used to simultaneously monitor the phase and amplitude of a toneburst signal normally reflected from an adhesively bonded steel-to-rubber interface. The measured phase was found to show a positive shift for all bonded samples with respect to the disbonded state - the phase shift being larger for samples with weaker bonds, as manifested by smaller values of applied tensile loads at failure. A model calculation, which incorporates the concept of interfacial strength into the usual problem of wave propagation in multilayered media, was used to deduce a bond-quality parameter from an experimentally measured phase shift. This bond-quality parameter was found to be correlated with the tensile strength of the adhesive bonds at failure loads.

    We discuss the application of Complex-Plane Gauss-Laguerre Quadrature (CGLQ) to efficiently evaluate two-dimensional Fourier integrals arising as the solution to electromagnetic fields radiated by elementary dipole antennas embedded within planar-layered media with arbitrary material parameters. More specifically, we apply CGLQ to the long-standing problem of rapidly and efficiently evaluating the semi-infinite length "tails" of the Fourier integral path while simultaneously and robustly guaranteeing absolute, exponential convergence of the field solution despite diversity in the doubly anisotropic layer parameters, source type (i.e., electric or equivalent magnetic dipole), source orientation, observed field type (magnetic or electric), (non-zero) frequency, and (non-zero) source-observer separation geometry. The proposed algorithm exhibits robustness despite unique challenges arising for the fast evaluation of such two-dimensional integrals. Herein, we (1) develop the mathematical treatment to rigorously ev...

    A thickness measurement system is proposed for in-line inspection of thickness variation of flat glass panels. Multi-reflection on the surfaces of glass panel generates an interference signal whose phase is proportional to the thickness of the glass panel. For accurate and stable calculation of the phase value, we obtain quadrature interference signals using a current modulation technique. The proposed system can measure a thickness profile with high speed and nanometric resolution, and obtain higher accuracy through real-time nonlinear error compensation. The thickness profile, measured by a transmissive-type experimental setup, coincided with a comparative result obtained using a contact-type thickness measurement system within the range of ±40  nm. The standard deviations of the measured thickness profiles and their waviness components were less than 3 nm with a scanning speed of 300  mm/s.

    2005-12-30

    Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) in very low fields isfundamentally limited by untruncated concomitant gradients which causesevere distortions in image acquisition and volume selection if thegradient fields are strong compared to the static field. In this paper,it is shown that gradient fields oscillating in quadrature can be usedfor spatial encoding in low fields and provide substantial improvementsover conventional encoding methods using static gradients. In particular,cases where the gradient field is comparable to or higher than theexternal field, Gmax/B0>1, are examined. It is shown thatundistorted slice selection and image encoding is possible because ofsmaller geometric phase errors introduced during cyclic motions of theHamiltonian. In the low field limit (Gmax/B_0 ->infinity) sliceselection is achieved with a combination of soft pulse segments and acoherent train of hard pulses to average out concomitant fields over thefast scale of the rf Hamiltonian.

    A scheme for optical parallel encryption/decryption of quadrature phase shift keying (QPSK) signals is proposed, in which three QPSK signals at 10 Gb/s are encrypted and decrypted simultaneously in the optical domain through nondegenerate four-wave mixing in a highly nonlinear fiber. The results of theoretical analysis and simulations show that the scheme can perform high-speed wiretapping against the encryption of parallel signals and receiver sensitivities of encrypted signal and the decrypted signal are -25.9 and -23.8 dBm, respectively, at the forward error correction threshold. The results are useful for designing high-speed encryption/decryption of advanced modulated signals and thus enhancing the physical layer security of optical networks.

  6. A robust two-node, 13 moment quadrature method of moments for dilute particle flows including wall bouncing

    Sun, Dan; Garmory, Andrew; Page, Gary J.

    2017-02-01

    For flows where the particle number density is low and the Stokes number is relatively high, as found when sand or ice is ingested into aircraft gas turbine engines, streams of particles can cross each other's path or bounce from a solid surface without being influenced by inter-particle collisions. The aim of this work is to develop an Eulerian method to simulate these types of flow. To this end, a two-node quadrature-based moment method using 13 moments is proposed. In the proposed algorithm thirteen moments of particle velocity, including cross-moments of second order, are used to determine the weights and abscissas of the two nodes and to set up the association between the velocity components in each node. Previous Quadrature Method of Moments (QMOM) algorithms either use more than two nodes, leading to increased computational expense, or are shown here to give incorrect results under some circumstances. This method gives the computational efficiency advantages of only needing two particle phase velocity fields whilst ensuring that a correct combination of weights and abscissas is returned for any arbitrary combination of particle trajectories without the need for any further assumptions. Particle crossing and wall bouncing with arbitrary combinations of angles are demonstrated using the method in a two-dimensional scheme. The ability of the scheme to include the presence of drag from a carrier phase is also demonstrated, as is bouncing off surfaces with inelastic collisions. The method is also applied to the Taylor-Green vortex flow test case and is found to give results superior to the existing two-node QMOM method and is in good agreement with results from Lagrangian modelling of this case.

  8. Relationship between the field local quadrature and the quantum discord of a photon-added correlated channel under the influence of scattering and phase fluctuation noise

    2017-10-01

    We study quantum correlations and discord in a bipartite continuous variable hybrid system formed by linear combinations of coherent states \\mathinner {|{α }\\rangle } and single photon-added coherent states of the form \\mathinner {|{ψ }\\rangle }_{ {dp(pa)}}= \\mathcal {N}/√{2} (\\hat{a}^\\dagger \\mathinner {|{α }\\rangle }_a\\mathinner {|{α }\\rangle }_b ± \\hat{b}^\\dagger \\mathinner {|{α }\\rangle }_a\\mathinner {|{α }\\rangle }_b). We stablish a relationship between the quantum discord with a local observable (the quadrature variance for one subsystem) under the influence of scattering and phase fluctuation noise. For the pure states the quantum correlations are characterized by means of measurement induced disturbance (MID) with simultaneous quadrature measurements. In a scenario where homodyne conditional measurements are available we show that the MID provides an easy way to select optimal phases to obtain information of the maximal correlations in the channels. The quantum correlations of these entangled states with channel losses are quantitatively characterized with the quantum discord (QD) with a displaced qubit projector. We observe that as scattering increases, QD decreases monotonically. At the same time for the state \\mathinner {|{ψ }\\rangle }_{ {dp}}, QD is more resistant to high phase fluctuations when the average photon number n_0 is bigger than zero, but if phase fluctuations are low, QD is more resistant if n_0=0. For the dp model with scattering, we obtain an analytical expression of the QD as a function of the observable quadrature variance in a local subsystem. This relation allows us to have a way to obtain the degree of QD in the channel by just measuring a local property observable such as the quadrature variance. For the other model this relation still exists but is explored numerically. This relation is an important result that allows to identify quantum processing capabilities in terms of just local observables.

    The problem of two-dimensional steady flow of an incompressible second-order viscoelastic fluid coupled with heat transfer between parallel plates was considered.A viscous dissipation function was included in the energy equation.When the elastic property of the fluid is weaker, the zeroth-order and first-order approximate governing equations were obtained by means of the perturbation method.To understand the behavior of flow near the tube wall, the half-domain was divided into two sub-domains, in which one is a thin layer near the wall called the inner domain and the remainder is called the outer domain.The governing equations in the inner domain and in the outer domain were discretized respectively by using the Differential Quadrature Method (DQM).The matching conditions at the interface between the inner and outer domains were presented.An iterative method for solving these discretized equations was given in this paper.The numerical results obtained agree with existing results.

    For the next generation wireless terminals used in the software defined radio (SDR), multi-band / multi-mode transceivers and their MMIC are required which cover the wide RF frequency range from several hundreds MHz up to several GHz. In this paper, 0.8-5.2GHz broad-band SiGe-MMIC quadrature mixer (Q-MIX) for multi-band / multi-mode direct conversion receiver has been developed. By using a static type frequency divider as a 90 degrees local (LO) power divider, measured error vector magnitude (EVM) of less than 3.1% can be achieved in the cases of 0.8/2.1GHz W-CDMA and 5.2GHz wireless Local Area Network (LAN) (IEEE 802.11a) reception. This Q-MIX also shows broad-band characteristic for base-band signal and is applicable for 4G cellular. By using fabricated Q-MIX, a multi-band / multi-mode (1.9GHz (3rd generation cellular (W-CDMA)) / 5.2GHz (4th generation cellular (Multi-Carrier (MC)-CDMA))) receiver has been developed and it has firstly demonstrated the successful reception of motion picture via W-CDMA and MC-CDMA.

    2008-08-01

    An accurate and efficient solution procedure based on the two-dimensional elasticity theory for free vibration of arbitrary laminated thick circular deep arches with some combinations of classical boundary conditions is introduced. In order to accurately represent the variation of strain across the thickness, the layerwise theory is used to approximate the displacement components in the radial direction. Employing Hamilton's principle, the discretized form of the equations of motion and the related boundary conditions in the radial direction are obtained. The resulting governing equations are then discretized using the differential quadrature method (DQM). After performing the convergence studies, new results for laminated arches with different set of boundary conditions are developed. Additionally, different values of the arch parameters such as opening angle, thickness-to-length and orthotropy ratios are considered. In all cases, comparisons with the results obtained using the finite element software 'ABAQUS' and also with those of the first- and higher-order shear deformation theories available in the literature are performed. Close agreements, especially with those of ABAQUS, are achieved.

    2005-01-01

    A rate adaptive multi-band ultra-wideband (UWB) system based on the quadrature fractal modulation (QFM)scheme was proposed. Exploring the use of homogeneous signals as modulating waveforms in UWB system, the signal within each 528MHz sub-band was divided into 8 different frequency bandwidths using wavelets transform and these data sequences to be transmitted were embedded into homogeneous waveforms. It is found that the use of homogeneous signals in such UWB system is quite feasible, leadings to a novel multi-rate diversity strategy. Within each 528MHz sub-band, the UWB-QFM system can provide much higher data rates than that of the UWB orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM) system. Simulation results also show that the bit error rate (BER) performance of the UWB-QFM system achieves a greatly improvement over existing UWB-OFDM system. Due to the fractal properties of the homogeneous signals, these data sequences to be transmitted can be recovered using arbitrarily short receiver signal.

    We discuss the application of complex-plane Gauss-Laguerre quadrature (CGLQ) to efficiently evaluate two-dimensional Fourier integrals arising as the solution to electromagnetic fields radiated by elementary dipole antennas embedded within planar-layered media exhibiting arbitrary material parameters. More specifically, we apply CGLQ to the long-standing problem of rapidly and efficiently evaluating the semi-infinite length "tails" of the Fourier integral path while simultaneously and robustly guaranteeing absolute, exponential convergence of the field solution despite diversity in the doubly anisotropic layer parameters, source type (i.e., electric or equivalent magnetic dipole), source orientation, observed field type (magnetic or electric), (nonzero) frequency, and (nonzero) source-observer separation geometry. The proposed algorithm exhibits robustness despite unique challenges arising for the fast evaluation of such two-dimensional integrals. Herein we develop the mathematical treatment to rigorously evaluate the tail integrals using CGLQ, as well as discuss and address the specific issues posed to the CGLQ method when anisotropic, layered media are present. To empirically demonstrate the CGLQ algorithm's computational efficiency, versatility, and accuracy, we perform a convergence analysis along with two case studies related to modeling of electromagnetic resistivity tools employed in geophysical prospection of layered, anisotropic Earth media and validating the ability of isoimpedance substrates to enhance the radiation performance of planar antennas placed in close proximity to metallic ground planes.

    A low phase noise CMOS LC quadrature VCO (QVCO) with a wide frequency range of 3.6-5.6 GHz, designed in a standard 0.18 μm process for multi-standard front-ends, is presented. A significant advantage of the topology is the larger oscillation amplitude when compared to other conventional QVCO...... structures. The QVCO is compared to a double cross-coupled LC-tank differential oscillator, both in theory and experiments, for evaluation of its phase noise, providing a good insight into its performance. The measured data displays up to 2 dBc/Hz lower phase noise in the 1/f2 region for the QVCO, when...... consuming twice the current of the differential VCO, based on an identical LC-tank. Experimental results on the QVCO show a phase noise level of -127.5 dBc/Hz at 3 MHz offset from a 5.6 GHz carrier while dissipating 8 mA of current, resulting in a figure of merit of 181.3 dBc/Hz....

    Electrical resistivity measurements can potentially be used to remotely monitor fate and transport of ionic oxidants such as permanganate (MnO4-) during in situ chemical oxidation (ISCO) of contaminants like trichloroethene (TCE). Time-lapse two-dimensional bulk conductivity and induced polarization surveys conducted during a sand tank ISCO simulation demonstrated that MnO4- plume movement could be monitored in a qualitative manner using bulk conductivity tomograms, although chargeability was below sensitivity limits. We also examined changes to in-phase and quadrature electrical conductivity resulting from ion injection, MnO2 and Cl- production, and pH change during TCE and humate oxidation by MnO4- in homogeneous aqueous solutions and saturated porous media samples. Data from the homogeneous samples demonstrated that inversion of the sand tank resistivity data using a common Tikhonov regularization approach was insufficient to recover an accurate conductivity distribution within the tank. While changes to in-phase conductivity could be successfully modeled, quadrature conductivity values could not be directly related to TCE oxidation product or MnO4- concentrations at frequencies consistent with field induced polarization surveys, limiting the utility of quadrature conductivity for monitoring ISCO.

    We extendthe application of moment methods to multivariate suspended particle population problems-those for which size alone is insufficient to specify the state of a particle in the population. Specifically, a bivariate extension of the quadrature method of moments (QMOM) (R. McGraw, Aerosol Sci. Technol. 27, 255 (1997)) is presented for efficiently modeling the dynamics of a population of inorganic nanoparticles undergoing simultaneous coagulation and particle sintering. Continuum regime calculations are presented for the Koch-Friedlander-Tandon-Rosner model, which includes coagulation by Brownian diffusion (evaluated for particle fractal dimensions, D(f), in the range 1.8-3) and simultaneous sintering of the resulting aggregates (P. Tandon and D. E. Rosner, J. Colloid Interface Sci. 213, 273 (1999)). For evaluation purposes, and to demonstrate the computational efficiency of the bivariate QMOM, benchmark calculations are carried out using a high-resolution discrete method to evolve the particle distribution function n(nu, a) for short to intermediate times (where nu and a are particle volume and surface area, respectively). Time evolution of a selected set of 36 low-order mixed moments is obtained by integration of the full bivariate distribution and compared with the corresponding moments obtained directly using two different extensions of the QMOM. With the more extensive treatment, errors of less than 1% are obtained over substantial aerosol evolution, while requiring only a few minutes (rather than days) of CPU time. Longer time QMOM simulations lend support to the earlier finding of a self-preserving limit for the dimensionless joint (nu, a) particle distribution function under simultaneous coagulation and sintering (Tandon and Rosner, 1999; D. E. Rosner and S. Yu, AIChE J., 47 (2001)). We demonstrate that, even in the bivariate case, it is possible to use the QMOM to rapidly model the approach to asymptotic behavior, allowing an immediate assessment of

    The traditional differential quadrature method was improved by using the upwind difference scheme for the convectiveterms to solve the coupled two-dimensional incompressible Navier-stokes equations and heat equation. The new method was comparedwith the conventional differential quadrature method in the aspects of convergence and accuracy. The results show that the newmethod is more accurate, and has better convergence than the conventional differential quadrature method for numerically computingthe steady-state solution.

    Avila, Gustavo; Carrington, Tucker

    2011-08-01

    In this paper we propose and test a method for computing numerically exact vibrational energy levels of a molecule with six atoms. We use a pruned product basis, a non-product quadrature, the Lanczos algorithm, and the exact normal-coordinate kinetic energy operator (KEO) with the πtμπ term. The Lanczos algorithm is applied to a Hamiltonian with a KEO for which μ is evaluated at equilibrium. Eigenvalues and eigenvectors obtained from this calculation are used as a basis to obtain the final energy levels. The quadrature scheme is designed, so that integrals for the most important terms in the potential will be exact. The procedure is tested on C2H4. All 12 coordinates are treated explicitly. We need only ˜1.52 × 108 quadrature points. A product Gauss grid with which one could calculate the same energy levels has at least 5.67 × 1013 points.

    2014-01-01

    For nonlinear discrete systems with addictive Gaus-sian noises, a new quadrature filter is proposed, which can fix sample points according to each dimension0s nonlinear function, respectively. In order to match higher-order terms of the nonlin-ear function0s Taylor expanding with reusing the sample points matching lower-order ones, an adaptive sampled multi variable quadrature rule is designed based on the embedded Gaussian sampled quadrature and the spare grid quadrature (SGQ) for-mula. A group of effective data structures and traversal algo-rithms are proposed for the sampled quadrature rule to be used for calculating the predict expectations of the states and mea-surements with their covariances. This filter could not only fix sampled points for different dimensions separately, but also reuse these points and their weights completely, thus enhancing the ef-ficiency of the filter. This filter achieves a higher accuracy than the unscented Kalman filter (UKF) , more effciency than the fixed SGQ filter, as well as generalized form of these two filters. The calculating cost of adaptive steps is much less than comput-ing the function sampled values. Simulations also validates the accuracy and effciency of this filter.%针对含加性高斯噪声的非线性离散系统,提出了可分别根据各维状态及量测方程的非线性函数特性来确定采样点及其权重的积分滤波器。设计了基于嵌入式高斯采样积分和稀疏网格法则的自适应多变量采样积分方法,可在匹配函数高阶泰勒展开项时,利用低阶采样点,提出了高效的数据结构和遍历算法,便于采用该积分方法分别估计系统状态/量测的预测均值和协方差矩阵。该滤波器既能根据各维非线性函数的特性确定采样点,又实现了对采样值和权重的完全复用,保证了算法效率。理论分析和仿真表明,该滤波算法中自适应调整的运算量小于计算非线性函数采样值。该滤

  1. 1D Current Source Density (CSD) Estimation in Inverse Theory: A Unified Framework for Higher-Order Spectral Regularization of Quadrature and Expansion-Type CSD Methods.

    Kropf, Pascal; Shmuel, Amir

    2016-07-01

    Estimation of current source density (CSD) from the low-frequency part of extracellular electric potential recordings is an unstable linear inverse problem. To make the estimation possible in an experimental setting where recordings are contaminated with noise, it is necessary to stabilize the inversion. Here we present a unified framework for zero- and higher-order singular-value-decomposition (SVD)-based spectral regularization of 1D (linear) CSD estimation from local field potentials. The framework is based on two general approaches commonly employed for solving inverse problems: quadrature and basis function expansion. We first show that both inverse CSD (iCSD) and kernel CSD (kCSD) fall into the category of basis function expansion methods. We then use these general categories to introduce two new estimation methods, quadrature CSD (qCSD), based on discretizing the CSD integral equation with a chosen quadrature rule, and representer CSD (rCSD), an even-determined basis function expansion method that uses the problem's data kernels (representers) as basis functions. To determine the best candidate methods to use in the analysis of experimental data, we compared the different methods on simulations under three regularization schemes (Tikhonov, tSVD, and dSVD), three regularization parameter selection methods (NCP, L-curve, and GCV), and seven different a priori spatial smoothness constraints on the CSD distribution. This resulted in a comparison of 531 estimation schemes. We evaluated the estimation schemes according to their source reconstruction accuracy by testing them using different simulated noise levels, lateral source diameters, and CSD depth profiles. We found that ranking schemes according to the average error over all tested conditions results in a reproducible ranking, where the top schemes are found to perform well in the majority of tested conditions. However, there is no single best estimation scheme that outperforms all others under all tested

    Jiwari, Ram

    2015-08-01

    In this article, the author proposed two differential quadrature methods to find the approximate solution of one and two dimensional hyperbolic partial differential equations with Dirichlet and Neumann's boundary conditions. The methods are based on Lagrange interpolation and modified cubic B-splines respectively. The proposed methods reduced the hyperbolic problem into a system of second order ordinary differential equations in time variable. Then, the obtained system is changed into a system of first order ordinary differential equations and finally, SSP-RK3 scheme is used to solve the obtained system. The well known hyperbolic equations such as telegraph, Klein-Gordon, sine-Gordon, Dissipative non-linear wave, and Vander Pol type non-linear wave equations are solved to check the accuracy and efficiency of the proposed methods. The numerical results are shown in L∞ , RMS andL2 errors form.

    2016-10-01

    In this paper, two-dimensional Schrödinger equations are solved by differential quadrature method. Key point in this method is the determination of the weight coefficients for approximation of spatial derivatives. Multiquadric (MQ) radial basis function is applied as test functions to compute these weight coefficients. Unlike traditional DQ methods, which were originally defined on meshes of node points, the RBFDQ method requires no mesh-connectivity information and allows straightforward implementation in an unstructured nodes. Moreover, the calculation of coefficients using MQ function includes a shape parameter c. A new variable shape parameter is introduced and its effect on the accuracy and stability of the method is studied. We perform an analysis for the dispersion error and different internal parameters of the algorithm are studied in order to examine the behavior of this error. Numerical examples show that MQDQ method can efficiently approximate problems in complexly shaped domains.

    2014-06-01

    Optical switching of high-bit-rate quadrature-phase-shift-keying (QPSK) pulse trains using collinear acousto-optic (AO) devices is theoretically discussed. Since the collinear AO devices have wavelength selectivity, the switched optical pulse trains suffer from distortion when the bandwidth of the pulse train is comparable to the pass bandwidth of the AO device. As the AO device, a sidelobe-suppressed device with a tapered surface-acoustic-wave (SAW) waveguide and a Butterworth-type filter device with a lossy SAW directional coupler are considered. Phase distortion of optical pulse trains at 40 to 100  Gsymbols/s in QPSK format is numerically analyzed. Bit-error-rate performance with additive Gaussian noise is also evaluated by the Monte Carlo method.

    Full Text Available The Random Forest algorithm was used to classify 86 Wide Fine Quadrature Polarized RADARSAT-2 scenes, five Landsat 5 scenes, and a Digital Elevation Model covering an area approximately 81,000 km2 in size, and representing the entirety of Dease Strait, Coronation Gulf and Bathurst Inlet, Nunavut. The focus of this research was to assess the potential to operationalize shoreline sensitivity mapping to inform oil spill response and contingency planning. The impact of varying the training sample size and reducing model data load were evaluated. Results showed that acceptable accuracies could be achieved with relatively few training samples, but that higher accuracies and greater probabilities of correct class assignment were observed with larger sample sizes. Additionally, the number of inputs to the model could be greatly reduced without impacting overall performance. Optimized models reached independent accuracies of 91% for seven land cover types, and classification probabilities between 0.77 and 0.98 (values for latter represent per-class averages generated from independent validation sites. Mixed results were observed when assessing the potential for remote predictive mapping by simulating transferability of the model to scenes without training data.

    2015-01-01

    We propose and experimentally demonstrate a novel scheme to realize electrical/optical (E/O) conversion on the receiver side of a wireless fiber integration system at the W band.At the receiver,a directly modulated laser (DML) is used to realize E/O conversion.The received 85 GHz wireless millimeter-wave (mm-wave) signal is first down-converted into a 10 GHz electrical intermediate-frequency (IF) signal to overcome the insufficient bandwidth of the subsequent DML.Then,two cascaded electrical amplifiers (EAs) are employed to boost the electrical IF signal before it is used to drive a DML.By using this scheme,we transmit a 10 Gb/s 16 quadrature amplitude modulation (16QAM) signal over a 10 m wireless link,and then deliver it over a 2 km single-mode fiber-28 (SMF-28) wire link with a bit error ratio (BER) that is less than the hard-decision forward error correction threshold of 3.8 × 10-3.Our experimental results show that the DML is good device to be used for the E/O conversion of a 16QAM signal.

    In this study, dual-hop channel state information-assisted amplify-and-forward (AF) cooperative systems in the presence of in-phase and quadrature-phase (I/Q) imbalance, which refers to the mismatch between components in the I and Q branches, are investigated. First, the authors analyse the performance of the considered AF cooperative protocol without compensation for the I/Q imbalance as the benchmark. Then, a compensation algorithm for the I/Q imbalance is proposed, which makes use of the received signals at the destination, from the source and the relay nodes, together with their conjugations to detect the transmitted signal. Moreover, the authors study the considered AF cooperative system implemented with the opportunistic relay selection and the proposed compensation mechanism for the I/Q imbalance. The performance of the AF cooperative system under study is evaluated in terms of average symbol error probability, which is derived by considering transmission in a Rayleigh fading environment. Numerical results are provided and show that the proposed compensation algorithm can efficiently mitigate the effect of the I/Q imbalance. On the other hand, it is observed that the AF cooperative system with opportunistic relay selection acquires a performance gain beyond that without relay selection.

    Francesco Tornabene

    2017-01-01

    Full Text Available The main aim of the present paper is to solve numerically the free vibration problem of sandwich shell structures with variable thickness and made of Functionally Graded Materials (FGMs. Several Higher-order Shear Deformation Theories (HSDTs, defined by a unified formulation, are employed in the study. The FGM structures are characterized by variable mechanical properties due to the through-the-thickness variation of the volume fraction distribution of the two constituents and the arbitrary thickness profile. A four-parameter power law expression is introduced to describe the FGMs, whereas general relations are used to define the thickness variation, which can affect both the principal coordinates of the shell reference domain. A local scheme of the Generalized Differential Quadrature (GDQ method is employed as numerical tool. The natural frequencies are obtained varying the exponent of the volume fraction distributions using higher-order theories based on a unified formulation. The structural models considered are two-dimensional and require less degrees of freedom when compared to the corresponding three-dimensional finite element (FE models, which require a huge number of elements to describe the same geometries accurately. A comparison of the present results with the FE solutions is carried out for the isotropic cases only, whereas the numerical results available in the literature are used to prove the validity as well as accuracy of the current approach in dealing with FGM structures characterized by a variable thickness profile.

    Optical coherence tomography (OCT) is a widely used three-dimensional (3D) optical imaging method with many biomedical and non-medical applications. Miniaturization, cost reduction, and increased functionality of OCT systems will be critical for future emerging clinical applications. We present a silicon photonic integrated circuit swept-source OCT (SS-OCT) coherent receiver with dual polarization, dual balanced, in-phase and quadrature (IQ) detection. We demonstrate multiple functional capabilities of IQ polarization resolved detection including: complex-conjugate suppressed full-range OCT, polarization diversity detection, and polarization-sensitive OCT. To our knowledge, this is the first demonstration of a silicon photonic integrated receiver for OCT. The integrated coherent receiver provides a miniaturized, low-cost solution for SS-OCT, and is also a key step towards a fully integrated high speed SS-OCT system with good performance and multi-functional capabilities. With further performance improvement and cost reduction, photonic integrated technology promises to greatly increase penetration of OCT systems in existing applications and enable new applications.

    马杭; 徐凯宇

    2003-01-01

    Stemming from the definition of the Cauchy principal values (CPV) integrals, a newly developed symmetrical quadrature scheme was proposed in the paper for the accurate numerical evaluation of the singular boundary integrals in the sense of CPV encountered in the boundary element method. In the case of inner-element singularities, the CPV integrals could be evaluated in a straightforward way by dividing the element into the symmetrical part and the remainder(s). And in the case of end-singularities, the CPV integrals could be evaluated simply by taking a tangential distance transformation of the integrand after cutting out a symmetrical tiny zone around the singular point. In both cases, the operations are no longer necessary before the numerical implementation, which involves the dull routine work to separate out singularities from the integral kernels. Numerical examples were presented for both the two-and the three-dimensional boundary integrals in elasticity. Comparing the numerical results with those by other approaches demonstrates the feasibility and the effectiveness of the proposed scheme.

    Multilevel mixed effects survival models are used in the analysis of clustered survival data, such as repeated events, multicenter clinical trials, and individual participant data (IPD) meta-analyses, to investigate heterogeneity in baseline risk and covariate effects. In this paper, we extend parametric frailty models including the exponential, Weibull and Gompertz proportional hazards (PH) models and the log logistic, log normal, and generalized gamma accelerated failure time models to allow any number of normally distributed random effects. Furthermore, we extend the flexible parametric survival model of Royston and Parmar, modeled on the log-cumulative hazard scale using restricted cubic splines, to include random effects while also allowing for non-PH (time-dependent effects). Maximum likelihood is used to estimate the models utilizing adaptive or nonadaptive Gauss-Hermite quadrature. The methods are evaluated through simulation studies representing clinically plausible scenarios of a multicenter trial and IPD meta-analysis, showing good performance of the estimation method. The flexible parametric mixed effects model is illustrated using a dataset of patients with kidney disease and repeated times to infection and an IPD meta-analysis of prognostic factor studies in patients with breast cancer. User-friendly Stata software is provided to implement the methods. Copyright © 2014 John Wiley & Sons, Ltd.

    Full Text Available This paper presents a 5 GHz wideband I/Q modulator/demodulator for 650 MHz OFDM signal bandwidth, which is integrated with a 5 GHz phase locked loop for I/Q generation. The quadrature signals are derived from a 10 GHz CMOS VCO followed by a bipolar frequency divider. The phase noise at 1 MHz offset is −112 dBc/Hz for the modulator as well as for the demodulator. The chips were produced in a 0.25 μm SiGe BiCMOS technology. The signal-to-noise ratio (SNR of transmitted/received OFDM signal and the corresponding I/Q mismatch versus baseband frequency are given. The modulator achieves an SNR of 22–23 dB, and the demodulator realizes an SNR up to 22 dB. The modulator reaches a data rate of 2.16 Gbit/s using 64 QAM OFDM, and the demodulator realizes 1.92 Gbits/s.

    2016-11-01

    We present Gauss-Jacobi quadrature rules in terms of hypergeometric functions for the discretization of weakly singular, strongly singular, hypersingular, and nearly singular integrals that arise in integral equation formulations of potential problems for domains with sharp edges and corners. The rules are tailored to weight functions with algebraic endpoint singularities of a fairly general form, thus allowing one to easily incorporate a wide class of domains into the analysis. Numerical examples illustrate the accuracy and stability of the proposed algorithms; it is shown that the same level of high accuracy can be achieved for any choice of the external variable. The usefulness of the method is exemplified by application to the solution of a singular integral equation that arises in time-harmonic electromagnetic scattering by either closed or open perfectly conducting cylindrical objects with edges and corners, such as polygon cylinders and bent strips. Some practical aspects concerning the role of nearby singularities in achieving a highly accurate solution of singular integral equations are, also, discussed.

    In this paper we mainly discuss the nonconforming finite element method for second order elliptic boundary value problems on anisotropic meshes. By changing the discretization form(i.e., by use of numerical quadrature in the procedure of computing the left load ), we obtain the optimal estimate O(h), which is as same as in the traditional finite element analysis when the load f∈H1(Ω)∩C0(Ω) which is weaker than the previous studies. The results obtained in this paper are also valid to the conforming triangular element and nonconforming Carey's element.

    2016-07-01

    We propose a novel and simple 2×2 multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) optical-wireless integration system, in which optical independent-sideband modulation enabled by an in-phase/quadrature (I/Q) modulator, instead of optical polarization multiplexing, is used to assist the simultaneous generation of two wireless millimeter-wave (mm-wave) signals. Software-based digital signal processing is used to generate the driving signal for the I/Q modulator, the output of which is two independent single-sideband optical vector signals located at two sides of a large central optical carrier. Based on our proposed 2×2 MIMO optical-wireless integration system, we experimentally demonstrate the simultaneous generation and 2×2 MIMO wireless delivery of two independent 40-GHz quadrature-phase-shift-keying (QPSK) wireless mm-wave signals. Each 40-GHz QPSK wireless mm-wave signal can carry up to 4-Gbaud transmitter data with a bit-error ratio less than the hard-decision forward-error-correction threshold of 3.8×10-3.

    The localized differential quadrature (LDQ) method is a numerical technique with high accuracy for solving most kinds of nonlinear problems in engineering and can overcome the difficulties of other methods (such as difference method) to numerically evaluate the derivatives of the functions. Its high efficiency and accuracy attract many engineers to apply the method to solve most of the numerical problems in engineering.However, difficulties can still be found in some particular problems. In the following study, the LDQ was applied to solve the Sod shock tube problem. This problem is a very particular kind of problem, which challenges many common numerical methods. Three different examples were given for testing the robustness and accuracy of the LDQ. In the first example, in which common initial conditions and solving methods were given, the numerical oscillations could be found dramatically; in the second example, the initial conditions were adjusted appropriately and the numerical oscillations were less dramatic than that in the first example; in the third example, the momentum equation of the Sod shock tube problem was corrected by adding artificial viscosity, causing the numerical oscillations to nearly disappear in the process of calculation. The numerical results presented demonstrate the detailed difficulties encountered in the calculations, which need to be improved in future work. However, in summary, the localized differential quadrature is shown to be a trustworthy method for solving most of the nonlinear problems in engineering.

The result shows that, the flutter velocity increases with the aspect ratio and thickness increased, and decreases with the area increased.

    A novel optical image encryption is proposed based on two-step-only quadrature phase-shifting interferometry. Only two interferograms are needed to reconstruct a zero-order-and twin-image-free hologram in this phase-shifting digital holography interference. Such technique precludes the need from recording either the reference wave or the object wave intensity. The object wavefront propagates with two Fresnel transforms in the light path, combined with the double random phase encoding. The following is that introducing zero and π/2 phase into reference waves respectively and recording two digital holograms as encrypted image. As long as the correct key is given in the decryption, a clear original image can be reconstructed by a simple calculation. The feasibility and its robustness against occlusion and noise attacks are verified by a series of numerical simulations.%提出一种基于两步正交相移干涉的光学图像加密技术.这种相移干涉数字全息只要记录两幅干涉图,不需要记录物光波和参考光波的强度信息,就可以再现没有零级像和共轭像的再现像,物光波对应的光路经过两次菲涅尔变换,并结合双随机相位编码.参考光分别引入0和π/2相位,用数字化记录介质记录两幅数字全息图作为加密图像.解密时只要获得正确的密钥,经过简单的计算就可以重建清晰的原始图像.模拟实验验证了它的可行性和有效性,分析了抗裁剪和噪音的鲁棒性.

    Remote, high speed, high explosive wave front monitoring requires very high bandwidth telemetry to allow transmission of diagnostic data before the explosion destroys the sensor system itself. The main motivation for this study is that no known existing implementation of this sort has been applied to realistic weapons environments. These facts have prompted the research and gathering of data that can be used to extrapolate towards finding the best modulation method for this application. In addition to research of similar existing analysis and testing operations, data was recently captured from a Joint Test Assembly (JTA) Air Launched Cruise Missile (ALCM) flight.

    CERN Document Server

    Xiao, H

    2001-01-01

    Whenever physical signals are measured or generated, the results tend to be band-limited (i.e. to have compactly supported Fourier transforms). Indeed, measurements of electromagnetic and acoustic data are band-limited due to the oscillatory character of the processes that have generated the quantities being measured. When the signals being measured come from heat propagation or diffusion processes, they are (practically speaking) band-limited, since the underlying physical processes operate as low- pass filters. The importance of band-limited functions has been recognized for hundreds of years; classical Fourier analysis can be viewed as an apparatus for dealing with such functions. When band-limited functions are defined on the whole line (or on the circle), classical tools are very satisfactory. However, in many cases, we are confronted with band- limited functions defined on intervals (or, more generally, on compact regions in R n). In this environment, standard tools based on polynomials are often effe...

  11. Local and Dimension Adaptive Sparse Grid Interpolation and Quadrature

    CERN Document Server

    Jakeman, John D

    2011-01-01

    In this paper we present a locally and dimension-adaptive sparse grid method for interpolation and integration of high-dimensional functions with discontinuities. The proposed algorithm combines the strengths of the generalised sparse grid algorithm and hierarchical surplus-guided local adaptivity. A high-degree basis is used to obtain a high-order method which, given sufficient smoothness, performs significantly better than the piecewise-linear basis. The underlying generalised sparse grid algorithm greedily selects the dimensions and variable interactions that contribute most to the variability of a function. The hierarchical surplus of points within the sparse grid is used as an error criterion for local refinement with the aim of concentrating computational effort within rapidly varying or discontinuous regions. This approach limits the number of points that are invested in `unimportant' dimensions and regions within the high-dimensional domain. We show the utility of the proposed method for non-smooth fu...

    Numerous everyday situations like navigation, medical imaging and rescue operations require viewing through optically inhomogeneous media. This is a challenging task as photons, instead of traversing ballistically, propagate predominantly diffusively due to random multiple scattering off the inhomogenieties. Imaging {\\it in real-time} with ballistic light under continuous-wave illumination is even more challenging due to the extremely weak signal, necessitating voluminous data-processing. In this paper, we report imaging through strongly scattering media in real-time and at rates several times the critical flicker frequency of the eye, so that motion is perceived as continuous. Two factors contributed to the speedup of {\\it more than three orders of magnitude} over conventional techniques - the use of a simplified algorithm enabling processing of data on the fly, and the utilisation of task and data parallelization capabilities of typical desktop computers. The extreme simplicity and low cost promises great u...

    2011-01-01

    Coupled models with multiple physics, scales and/or domains dominate numerous areas of science and engineering. A key challenge in the formulation and implementation of coupled models is in facilitating the communication of information across physics, scale or domain interfaces. In a probabilistic context, any information that is communicated between model components is described in a statistical manner and requires a probabilistic representation. While the number of sources of uncertainty is often large in many coupled problems, our contention is that exchanged statistical information often resides in a much lower dimensional space. In this work, we thus leverage dimension-reduction techniques to lower the stochastic dimension of uncertainty representations as they are passed from component to component in a stochastic coupled model. The main objective of the paper is to propose measure-transformation techniques that allow for this dimension reduction to be exploited to achieve computational gains. These tec...

    Rendering photorealistic images is a costly process which can take up to several days in the case of high quality images. In most cases, the task of sampling the incident radiance function to evaluate the illumination integral is responsible for an important share of the computation time. Therefore, to reach acceptable rendering times, the illumination integral must be evaluated using a limited set of samples. Such a restriction raises the question of how to obtain the most accurate approximation possible with such a limited set of samples. One must thus ensure that sampling produces the highe

  2. Functional and morphological cardiac magnetic resonance imaging of mice using a cryogenic quadrature radiofrequency coil.

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Babette Wagenhaus

    Full Text Available Cardiac morphology and function assessment by magnetic resonance imaging is of increasing interest for a variety of mouse models in pre-clinical cardiac research, such as myocardial infarction models or myocardial injury/remodeling in genetically or pharmacologically induced hypertension. Signal-to-noise ratio (SNR constraints, however, limit image quality and blood myocardium delineation, which crucially depend on high spatial resolution. Significant gains in SNR with a cryogenically cooled RF probe have been shown for mouse brain MRI, yet the potential of applying cryogenic RF coils for cardiac MR (CMR in mice is, as of yet, untapped. This study examines the feasibility and potential benefits of CMR in mice employing a 400 MHz cryogenic RF surface coil, compared with a conventional mouse heart coil array operating at room temperature. The cryogenic RF coil affords SNR gains of 3.0 to 5.0 versus the conventional approach and hence enables an enhanced spatial resolution. This markedly improved image quality--by better deliniation of myocardial borders and enhanced depiction of papillary muscles and trabeculae--and facilitated a more accurate cardiac chamber quantification, due to reduced intraobserver variability. In summary the use of a cryogenically cooled RF probe represents a valuable means of enhancing the capabilities of CMR of mice.

  3. Atom-assisted quadrature squeezing of a mechanical oscillator inside a dispersive cavity

    Biswas, Asoka; Chauhan, Anil Kumar

    2016-05-01

    Measurement of position of a mesoscopic harmonic oscillator below standard quantum limit in cavity optomechanics has seen a growing interest in recent times. If the oscillator is suspended inside the cavity (with both the mirrors fixed) at a position where the cavity frequency becomes extremum (a membrane-in-the-middle setup), large squeezing can be achieved by conditional measurement of thermal photons; however the cavity decay degrades such squeezing. Here we propose an atom-cavity-oscillator hybrid scheme, in which the effect of cavity decay is eliminated via dispersive coupling of the cavity mode. The atom in Λ configuration is considered to be trapped on either side of the membrane inside the cavity. We show that a considerable amount of squeezing (far beyond the 3 dB limit) can be achieved that is not affected by spontaneous emission of the atom. The squeezing depends upon the initial preparation of the atomic states. Further, the external classical fields, that drive the atomic transition and the cavity mode, control the degree of squeezing and can also lead to a strong effective atom-oscillator coupling. Effect of thermal phonon bath on squeezing is studied in terms of the squeezing spectrum. The results are supported by the detailed analytical calculations.

    We propose and fully analyze a compact structure for DAC-free pure optical QAM modulation. The proposed structure is the first ring resonator-based DAC-free QAM modulator reported in the literature, to the best of our knowledge. The device consists of two segmented add-drop Mach Zehnder interferometer-assisted ring modulators (MZIARM) in an IQ configuration. The proposed architecture is investigated based on the parameters from SOI technology where various key design considerations are discussed. We have included the loss in the MZI arms in our analysis of phase and amplitude modulation using MZIARM for the first time and show that the imbalanced loss results in a phase error. The output level linearity is also studied for both QAM-16 and QAM-64 not only based on optimizing RF segment lengths but also by optimizing the number of segments. In QAM-16, linearity among levels is achievable with two segments while in QAM-64 an additional segment may be required.

    The estimation of high order correlation function values is an important problem in the field of quantum computation. We show that the problem can be reduced to preparation and measurement of optical quantum states resulting after annihilation of a set number of quanta from the original beam. We apply this approach to explore various photon bunching regimes in optical states with gamma-compounded Poisson photon number statistics. We prepare and perform measurement of the thermal quantum state as well as states produced by subtracting one to ten photons from it. Maximum likelihood estimation is employed for parameter estimation. The goal of this research is the development of highly accurate procedures for generation and quality control of optical quantum states.

    We study the nonlinear incompressible non-viscous fluid flows within a thin rotating atmospheric shell that serve as a simple mathematical description of an atmospheric circulation caused by the temperature difference between the equator and the poles. The model is also superimposed by a particular stationary flow which, under the assumption of no friction and a distribution of temperature dependent only upon latitude, models the zonal west-to-east flows in the upper atmosphere between the Ferrel and Polar cells. Owing to the Coriolis effects, the resulting achievable meteorological flows correspond to the asymptotical stable flows that are being translated along the equatorial plane. The exact solutions in terms of elementary functions are found by using Lie group methods. -- Highlights: → This article provides new exact solutions of the Euler and Navier-Stokes equations. → The exact solutions are written in terms of elementary functions. → The exact solutions were obtained by Lie group analysis. → A wider class of exact solutions is contained in the obtained Lie algebra.

    2015-12-28

    A theoretically informed Monte Carlo method is proposed for Monte Carlo simulation of liquid crystals on the basis of theoretical representations in terms of coarse-grained free energy functionals. The free energy functional is described in the framework of the Landau-de Gennes formalism. A piecewise finite element discretization is used to approximate the alignment field, thereby providing an excellent geometrical representation of curved interfaces and accurate integration of the free energy. The method is suitable for situations where the free energy functional includes highly non-linear terms, including chirality or high-order deformation modes. The validity of the method is established by comparing the results of Monte Carlo simulations to traditional Ginzburg-Landau minimizations of the free energy using a finite difference scheme, and its usefulness is demonstrated in the context of simulations of chiral liquid crystal droplets with and without nanoparticle inclusions.

    A photonic integrated circuit architecture for implementing frequency upconversion is proposed. The circuit consists of a 1×2 splitter and 2×1 combiner interconnected by two stages of differentially driven phase modulators having 2×2 multimode interference coupler between the stages. A transfer matrix approach is used to model the operation of the architecture. The predictions of the model are validated by simulations performed using an industry standard software tool. The intrinsic conversion efficiency of the proposed design is improved by 6 dB over the alternative functionally equivalent circuit based on dual parallel Mach-Zehnder modulators known in the prior art. A two-tone analysis is presented to study the linearity of the proposed circuit, and a comparison is provided over the alternative. The proposed circuit is suitable for integration in any platform that offers linear electro-optic phase modulation such as LiNbO(3), silicon, III-V, or hybrid technology.

    Full Text Available Using integral equation methods for the analysis of complex (MMIC structures, the computation and storage effort for the solution of the linear systems of equations with their fully populated matrices still forms the main bottleneck. In the last years, remarkable improvements could be achieved by means of diakoptic methods and related preconditiners. In this contribution, we present a method based on the optimized decomposition of the system matrix depending on the circuit topology. The system matrix is splitted in a densely populated matrix and a mainly blockdiagonal matrix with overlapping submatrices. The latter matrix is used for the generation of high performance preconditioners within Krylov subspace methods using sparsified matrix storage methods, adaptive Cholesky decompositions and optimized forward/backward substitutions. Furthermore, we present an integration technique using a complete analytical treatment for the strongly oscillating parts of the spectral domain integrands allowing the analysis of very large structures as compared to the wavelength.

    Full Text Available Nei primi decenni del Seicento la pittura decorativa a Firenze risulta ancora legata all'ornamentazione tradizionale tardomanierista attuata nei modi di Alessandro Allori o di Bernardino Barbatelli detto il Poccetti. L'interesse per le novità e per l'aggiornamento dell'ambiente artistico fiorentino portarono il granduca Ferdinando II a chiamare a Firenze tra il 1636 ed il 1637 Pietro da Cortona, Angelo Michele Colonna e Agostino Mitelli. I due bolognesi completarono il ciclo pittorico celebrativo del governo di Ferdinando cui aveva dato inizio Giovanni da San Giovanni, con la decorazione delle tre sale di rappresentanza del quartiere estivo di palazzo Pitti realizzata tra il 1637 ed il 1641. L'intervento, condotto secondo il più moderno linguaggio barocco che vede la perfetta integrazione dell'illusionismo architettonico, che supera i limiti dello spazio reale, con le scene figurative, verrà a costituire nell'ambiente fiorentino un ineludibile modello di riferimento nella decorazione d'interni, soluzioni di grande modernità su cui si formerà Jacopo Chiavistelli e i giovani della sua scuola. Anche Giovan Carlo, fratello del granduca, nel 1637 diede inizio ad una serie di trasformazioni che si protrassero per oltre un ventennio, trasformando gli ambienti a lui assegnati in Pitti in veri e propri luoghi di delizie, decorati dagli artisti più significativi del momento quali ad esempio Angelo Michele Colonna, Agostino Mitelli, Pietro da Cortona, Jacopo Chiavistelli. Fu quest'ultimo frescante che con i suoi 'scolari', fin dagli anni Cinquanta fu attivo in palazzo Pitti, decorando a quadratura gli ambienti dei quartieri dei membri della famiglia granducale, ambienti che in gran parte sono andati perduti in quanto interessati dalle ristrutturazioni lorenesi e sabaude. Con i lavori commissionati dal gran principe Ferdinando si chiude in palazzo Pitti la grande stagione del quadraturismo barocco fiorentino.Nos primeiros decênios do Seiscentos a pintura decorativa em Florença resulta ainda ligada à ornamentação tradicional tardo maneirista operado nos moldes de Alessandro Allori ou nos de Bernadino Barbatelli, chamado de Poccetti.

    A Michelson Fiber optic sensor (MFOS) is described for in-situ strain and vibration monitoring as well as acoustic emission detection in composite material structures. The phase sensitive fiber optic sensor is localized, all-fiber, and intrinsic. The MFOS was successfully embedded in Kevlar/epoxy and graphite/epoxy thermosets as well as graphite/PEEK thermoplastic in order to perform local strain and vibration measurements at the lamina level. A technique allowing acoustic emission detection in parallel with strain and vibration monitoring is illustrated.

    Highlights: • Amplitude balanced 3 dB coaxial hybrid splitter has been designed and rf tested. • The proposed hybrid is applicable to ITER ICRF transmission line for load resilience. • Two-section, broadband coaxial hybrid can be tunable by changing dielectric insulator. - Abstract: RF design and network analyzer tests of broadband, amplitude-balanced coaxial hybrid junctions are presented. We have designed two 3 dB hybrid splitters with 9 and 12 in. coaxial transmission lines applicable to ITER ICRF for load-resilient operations using ANSYS HFSS. Amplitude-balanced broadband responses were obtained with the combination of impedance reductions of longitudinal and transverse branches in unequal proportion, length change of 50 Ω lines and diameter change of high impedance lines connected transversely to the T-section of the hybrid splitter, respectively. We have fabricated and RF tested the 9 in. coaxial hybrid coupler. We obtained an excellent coupling flatness of −3.2 ± 0.2 dB, phase difference of 4 degrees and return loss of 16 dB in 40–55 MHz. The measured data of 9 in. hybrid splitter is highly consistent with HFSS simulations. We found that the proposed 3 dB hybrid splitter can be tunable with amplitude-balanced, broadband response by changing dielectric insulators to keep the inner and outer conductors of coaxial line apart. The proposed 3 dB hybrid splitter can be utilized for load-resilient operations in a wide range of antenna load variations due to mode transitions or edge localized modes (ELMs) in fusion plasmas.

    Doppler shift and signal power attenuation in the complex environment both can make damage in the accuracy of carrier tracking. Therefore, the non-linear Kalman filter for carrier tracking is designed, which makes correlated observations in the EKF and UKF model based on the analysis of the structure of BeiDou B1 signal. By using measurements from the estimation of filtering in feedback control of the carrier tracking loop, higher and more stable performance can be given in high dynamic and weak signal environments. Finally, the test results show that the feedback control-based EKF and UKF model can perform precise carrier tracking, and make a good limitation of loop error, both of which lead to realization of high performance of signal tracking.%复杂环境下的多普勒频移变化及信号功率衰减均会对载波准确跟踪造成影响。在研究北斗卫星B1频点信号结构的基础上,建立以环路中相关积分值为观测量的非线性EKF模型和UKF模型,并提出利用滤波估计状态量进行状态反馈控制的方法,从而解决了载波跟踪环路在高动态及弱信号环境中难以高性能工作的问题。实验结果表明,状态反馈控制的EKF模型和UKF滤波模型能准确地跟踪弱信号及高动态下的信号变化,从而有效控制跟踪误差,为实现快速准确的载波跟踪奠定了基础。

    Quantum fluctuation and quantum entanglement of the pump field reflected from an optical cavity for type II second harmonic generation are theoretically analyzed. The correlation spectra between the quadratures of the reflected subharmonic fields are interpreted in terms of pump parameter, intracavity losses and normalized frequency. Large correlation degrees of both amplitude and phase quadratures can be accessed in a triple resonant cavity before the pitchfork bifurcation occurs. The two reflected subharmonic fields are in an entangled state with the quantum correlation of phase quadratures and anticorrelation of amplitude quadratures. The proposed system can be exploited to be a new source generating entangled states of continuous variables.

    The central problem of the dosimetry of the ionizing radiations is the determination of the dissipated energy by unit of mass of irradiated material. This energy usually is inferred of ionization measures in a small cavity of air housed inside the material medium. The Bragg-Gray cavity theory was the first one in estimating the dissipated energy through the ionizations that the primary electrons cause in the cavity. The primary electrons are generated by photoelectric effect, pair production and by Compton dispersion of the photon beams that initially impact on the material. However, in a more realist approach the existence of secondary electrons due to the electron-electron interaction it will be considered. The Spencer-Attix cavity theory considers to the secondary electrons as responsible part for the energy deposited in the means, for that a total spectral fluence of electrons (primary and secondary) it appears in this theory. Few electrons spectra have been published, mainly, those that include the contribution of secondary electrons ({delta} rays). Leaving of the ideas of Spencer-Attix, in this work an approach method to determine the rate of electron spectral fluences (total regarding primary) for a wide variety of material Z, and energy sources T{sub 0} is presented. The method for materials used by Spencer-Attix is applied, it is proven its reliability and it is applied to the water like absorber medium by its importance in the clinical dosimetry. (Author)

    Chebfun and numerical quadrature HALE Nicholas & TREFETHEN Lloyd N Abstract Chebfun is a Matlab-based software system that overloads Matlab's discrete operations for vectors and matrices to analogous continuous operations for functions and operators. We begin by describing Chebfun's fast capabilities for Clenshaw-Curtis and also Gauss-Legendre, -Jacobi, -Hermite, and -Laguerre quadrature, based on algorithms of Waldvogel and Glaser, Liu and Rokhlin. Then we consider how such methods can be applied to quadrature problems including 2D integrals over rectangles, fractional derivatives and integrals, functions defined on unbounded intervals, and the fast computation of weights for barycentric interpolation.

    One-step block method for solving linear Volterra integro-differential equations (VIDEs) is presented in this paper. In VIDEs, the unknown function appears in the form of derivative and under the integral sign. The popular methods for solving VIDEs are the method of quadrature or quadrature method combined with numerical method. The proposed block method will solve the ordinary differential equations (ODEs) part and Newton-Cotes quadrature rule is applied to calculate the integral part of VIDEs. Numerical problems are presented to illustrate the performance of the proposed method.

    A phase-sensitive four-wave mixing (FWM) scheme enabling the simultaneous conversion of the two orthogonal quadratures of an optical signal to different wavelengths is demonstrated for the first time under dynamic operation using a highly nonlinear optical fiber (HNLF) as the nonlinear medium....... The scheme is first optimized with respect to the power levels and phases of the four phase-coherent pumps.

    A process which strongly amplifies both quadrature amplitudes of an oscillatory signal necessarily adds noise. Alternatively, if the information in one quadrature is lost in phase-sensitive amplification, it is possible to completely reconstruct the other quadrature. Here we demonstrate such a nearly perfect phase-sensitive measurement using a cavity optomechanical scheme, characterized by an extremely small noise less than 0.2 quanta. The device also strongly squeezes microwave radiation by 8 dB below vacuum. A source of bright squeezed microwaves opens up applications in manipulations of quantum systems, and noiseless amplification can be used even at modest cryogenic temperatures.

  15. Phase-space noncommutative extension of the Robertson-Schroedinger formulation of Ozawa's uncertainty principle

    CERN Document Server

    Bastos, Catarina; Bertolami, Orfeu; Dias, Nuno Costa; Prata, João Nuno

    2014-01-01

    We revisit Ozawa's uncertainty principle (OUP) in the framework of noncommutative (NC) quantum mechanics. We derive a matrix version of OUP accommodating any NC structure in the phase-space, and compute NC corrections to lowest order for two measurement interactions, namely the Backaction Evading Quadrature Amplifier and Noiseless Quadrature Transducers. These NC corrections alter the nature of the measurement interaction, as a noiseless interaction may acquire noise, and an interaction of independent intervention may become dependent of the object system. However the most striking result is that noncommutativity may lead to a violation of the OUP itself. The NC corrections for the Backaction Evading Quadrature Amplifier reveal a new term which may potentially be amplified in such a way that the violation of the OUP becomes experimentally testable. On the other hand, the NC corrections to the Noiseless Quadrature Transducer shows an incompatibility of this model with NC quantum mechanics. We discuss the impli...

  16. Numerical integration of discontinuous functions: moment fitting and smart octree

    Hubrich, Simeon; Di Stolfo, Paolo; Kudela, László; Kollmannsberger, Stefan; Rank, Ernst; Schröder, Andreas; Düster, Alexander

    2017-07-01

    A fast and simple grid generation can be achieved by non-standard discretization methods where the mesh does not conform to the boundary or the internal interfaces of the problem. However, this simplification leads to discontinuous integrands for intersected elements and, therefore, standard quadrature rules do not perform well anymore. Consequently, special methods are required for the numerical integration. To this end, we present two approaches to obtain quadrature rules for arbitrary domains. The first approach is based on an extension of the moment fitting method combined with an optimization strategy for the position and weights of the quadrature points. In the second approach, we apply the smart octree, which generates curved sub-cells for the integration mesh. To demonstrate the performance of the proposed methods, we consider several numerical examples, showing that the methods lead to efficient quadrature rules, resulting in less integration points and in high accuracy.

    We demonstrate experimentally quantum frequency up-conversion of a continuous variable entangled optical field via sum-frequency-generation process. The two-color entangled state initially entangled at 806 and 1518 nm with an amplitude quadrature difference squeezing of 3.2 dB and phase quadrature sum squeezing of 3.1 dB is converted to a new entangled state at 530 and 1518 nm with the amplitude quadrature difference squeezing of 1.7 dB and phase quadrature sum squeezing of 1.8 dB. Our implementation enables the observation of entanglement between two light fields spanning approximately 1.5 octaves in optical frequency. The presented scheme is robust to the excess amplitude and phase noises of the pump field, making it a practical building block for quantum information processing and communication networks.

    A hierarchy of discrete Boltzmann model is proposed for simulating shallow water flows. By using the Hermite expansion and Gauss-Hermite quadrature, the conservation laws are automatically satisfied without extra effort. Moreover, the expansion order and quadrature can be chosen flexibly according to the problem for striking the balance of accuracy and efficiency. The models are then tested using the classical one-dimensional dam-breaking problem, and successes are found for both supercritical and subcritical flows.

    A method of eliminating the memory from the equations of motion of linear viscoelasticity is presented. Replacing the unbounded memory by a quadrature over a finite or semi-finite interval leads to considerable reduction of computational effort and storage. The method applies to viscoelastic media with separable completely monotonic relaxation moduli with an explicitly known retardation spectrum. In the seismological Strick-Mainardi model the quadrature is a Gauss-Jacobi quaddrature. The relation to fractional-order viscoelasticity is shown

    Some dynamical properties of a finite-dimensional Hilbert space harmonic oscillator (FDHSHO) are studied. The time evolution of the position and momentum operators and the second-order quadrature squeezing are investigated in detail. It is shown that the coherent states of the FDHSHO are not the minimum uncertainty states of the position and momentum operators of the FDHSHO. It is found that the second-order squeezing of the quadrature operators vanishes and reappears periodically in the time evolution. (orig.)

    This paper examines by analytical methods the power spectral densities of digital modulations (in particular, staggered and unstaggered quadrature modulations) passed through band-limited nonlinear channels. Previously observed (by computer simulation or hardware measurement) behavior of such spectra with regard to the suppression or restoration of its sidelobes after passing through the nonlinearity is verified analytically. Several examples corresponding to specific quadrature modulations and filter-nonlinearity combinations are presented as illustrations of the general results.

    The coherent bit (cobit) channel is a resource intermediate between classical and quantum communication. It produces coherent versions of teleportation and superdense coding. We extend the cobit channel to continuous variables by providing a definition of the coherent nat (conat) channel. We construct several coherent protocols that use both a position-quadrature and a momentum-quadrature conat channel with finite squeezing. Finally, we show that the quality of squeezing diminishes through successive compositions of coherent teleportation and superdense coding.

Quadrature correction electrodes are added to eliminate the residual quadrature error. The structure principle and the quadrature error suppression means of the DDMG are described in detail. ANSYS software is used to simulate the micro-gyroscope structure to verify the mechanical coupling error suppression effect.

The improved DDMG structure chip is fabricated by the deep dry silicon on glass (DDSOG process. The feedback control circuits with quadrature control loops are designed to suppress the residual mechanical coupling error. Finally, the system performance of the DDMG prototype is tested. Compared with the former DDMG, the quadrature error in the improved dual-mass micro-gyroscope is decreased 9.66-fold, and the offset error is decreased 6.36-fold.

    An architecture and a hardware prototype of a flexible trellis modem/codec (FTMC) transmitter are presented. The theory of operation is built upon a pragmatic approach to trellis-coded modulation that emphasizes power and spectral efficiency. The system incorporates programmable modulation formats, variations of trellis-coding, digital baseband pulse-shaping, and digital channel precompensation. The modulation formats examined include (uncoded and coded) binary phase shift keying (BPSK), quatenary phase shift keying (QPSK), octal phase shift keying (8PSK), 16-ary quadrature amplitude modulation (16-QAM), and quadrature quadrature phase shift keying (Q squared PSK) at programmable rates up to 20 megabits per second (Mbps). The FTMC is part of the developing test bed to quantify modulation and coding concepts.

    2016-08-01

    We report experimental evidence that the microwave electromagnetic field generated by a normal conductor, here a tunnel junction placed at ultra-low temperature, can be non-classical. By measuring the quadratures of the electromagnetic field at one or two frequencies in the GHz range, we demonstrate the existence of squeezing as well as entanglement in such radiation. In one experiment, we observe that the variance of one quadrature of the photo-assisted noise generated by the junction goes below its vacuum level. In the second experiment, we demonstrate the existence of correlations between the quadratures taken at two frequencies, which can be stronger than allowed by classical mechanics, proving that the radiation at those two frequencies are entangled. xml:lang="fr"

    2009-01-01

    The design, implementation, and characterization of an image-rejection double quadrature conversion mixer based on RC asymmetric polyphase filters (PPF) are presented. The mixer consists of three sets of PPFs and a mixer core for quadrature down conversion. Two sets of PPFs are used for the quadrature generation and the other one is used for the IF signal selection to reject the unwanted image band. Realized in 0.18-μm CMOS technology as a part of the DVB-T receiver chip, the mixer exhibits a high image rejection ratio (IRR) of 58 dB, a power consumption of 11 mW, and a 1-dB gain compression point of -15 dBm.

    Iannelli, M; Kostova, T; Milner, F A

    2008-01-08

    In many applications of age- and size-structured population models, there is an interest in obtaining good approximations of total population numbers rather than of their densities. Therefore, it is reasonable in such cases to solve numerically not the PDE model equations themselves, but rather their integral equivalents. For this purpose quadrature formulae are used in place of the integrals. Because quadratures can be designed with any order of accuracy, one can obtain numerical approximations of the solutions with very fast convergence. In this article, we present a general framework and a specific example of a fourth-order method based on composite Newton-Cotes quadratures for a size-structured population model.

    2016-12-01

    A method for optical phase extraction based on two-dimensional discrete wavelets transform (2-DWT) decomposition is shown. From modulated fringe pattern, phase distribution is extracted by the ratio between detail and approximation. Modulation process is realized digitally by introducing high-frequency spatial carrier, and this process needs two π/2-shifted fringe patterns. We propose to use only single fringe and generate its quadrature by spiral phase transform (SPT). After validation by computer simulation, we apply the 2-DWT algorithm on experimental speckle fringe correlation taken for hard disk surface. The extracted phase using SPT quadrature was compared with that given using this time experimental quadrature, and we show a good performance by multiscale structural similarity metric.

  6. A Family of Multipoint Flux Mixed Finite Element Methods for Elliptic Problems on General Grids

    KAUST Repository

    Wheeler, Mary F.

    2011-01-01

    In this paper, we discuss a family of multipoint flux mixed finite element (MFMFE) methods on simplicial, quadrilateral, hexahedral, and triangular-prismatic grids. The MFMFE methods are locally conservative with continuous normal fluxes, since they are developed within a variational framework as mixed finite element methods with special approximating spaces and quadrature rules. The latter allows for local flux elimination giving a cell-centered system for the scalar variable. We study two versions of the method: with a symmetric quadrature rule on smooth grids and a non-symmetric quadrature rule on rough grids. Theoretical and numerical results demonstrate first order convergence for problems with full-tensor coefficients. Second order superconvergence is observed on smooth grids. © 2011 Published by Elsevier Ltd.

  7. Optimal Signal Filtration in Optical Sensors with Natural Squeezing of Vacuum Noises

    Gusev, A. V.; Kulagin, V. V.

    1996-01-01

    The structure of optimal receiver is discussed for optical sensor measuring a small displacement of probe mass. Due to nonlinear interaction of the field and the mirror, a reflected wave is in squeezed state (natural squeezing), two quadratures of which are correlated and therefore one can increase signal-to-noise ratio and overcome the SQL. A measurement procedure realizing such correlation processing of two quadratures is clarified. The required combination of quadratures can be produced via mixing of pump field reflected from the mirror with local oscillator phase modulated field in duel-detector homodyne scheme. Such measurement procedure could be useful not only for resonant bar gravitational detector but for laser longbase interferometric detectors as well.

  8. A sublinear-scaling approach to density-functional-theory analysis of crystal defects

    Science.gov (United States)

    Ponga, M.; Bhattacharya, K.; Ortiz, M.

    2016-10-01

    We develop a sublinear-scaling method, referred to as MacroDFT, for the study of crystal defects using ab-initio Density Functional Theory (DFT). The sublinear scaling is achieved using a combination of the Linear Scaling Spectral Gauss Quadrature method (LSSGQ) and a Coarse-Graining approach (CG) based on the quasi-continuum method. LSSGQ reformulates DFT and evaluates the electron density without computing individual orbitals. This direct evaluation is possible by recourse to Gaussian quadrature over the spectrum of the linearized Hamiltonian operator. Furthermore, the nodes and weights of the quadrature can be computed independently for each point in the domain. This property is exploited in CG, where fields of interest are computed at selected nodes and interpolated elsewhere. In this paper, we present the MacroDFT method, its parallel implementation and an assessment of convergence and performance by means of test cases concerned with point defects in magnesium.

  9. A probabilistic phase-insensitive optical squeezer in peaceful coexistence with causality

    Gagatsos, C N; Cerf, N J

    2012-01-01

    A non trace-preserving map describing a probabilistic but heralded noiseless linear amplifier has recently been proposed and experimentally demonstrated. Here, we exhibit another remarkable feature of this peculiar transformation, namely its ability to serve as a universal single-mode squeezer regardless of the quadrature that is initially squeezed. Hence, it acts as an heralded phase-insensitive optical squeezer, conserving the signal-to-noise ratio just as a phase-sensitive optical amplifier but for all quadratures at the same time, which may offer new perspectives in quantum optical communications. Although this ability to squeeze all quadratures seemingly opens a way to instantaneous signaling by circumventing the quantum no-cloning theorem, we explain the subtle mechanism by which the probability for such a causality violation vanishes, even on an heralded basis.

  10. Waveform Synthesizer For Imaging And Ranging Applications

    Science.gov (United States)

    DUDLEY, PETER A.; [et al

    2004-11-30

    Frequency dependent corrections are provided for quadrature imbalance. An operational procedure filters imbalance effects without prior calibration or equalization. Waveform generation can be adjusted/corrected in a synthetic aperture radar system (SAR), where a rolling phase shift is applied to the SAR's QDWS signal where it is demodulated in a receiver; unwanted energies, such as imbalance energy, are separated from a desired signal in Doppler; the separated energy is filtered from the receiver leaving the desired signal; and the separated energy in the receiver is measured to determine the degree of imbalance that is represented by it. Calibration methods can also be implemented into synthesis. The degree of quadrature imbalance can be used to determine calibration values that can then be provided as compensation for frequency dependent errors in components, such as the QDWS and SSB mixer, affecting quadrature signal quality.

    Science.gov (United States)

    Venkatesan, Jaikrishna; Mysoor, Narayan R.; Hashemi, Hassein; Aflatouni, Firooz

    2010-01-01

    A fully integrated, front-end Ka-band monolithic microwave integrated circuit (MMIC) was developed that houses an LNA (low noise amplifier) stage, a down-conversion stage, and output buffer amplifiers. The MMIC design employs a two-step quadrature down-conversion architecture, illustrated in the figure, which results in improved quality of the down-converted IF quadrature signals. This is due to the improved sensitivity of this architecture to amplitude and phase mismatches in the quadrature down-conversion process. Current sharing results in reduced power consumption, while 3D-coupled inductors reduce the chip area. Improved noise figure is expected over previous SiGe-based, frontend designs

  12. Bimodal score distributions and the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator: fact or artifact?

    Science.gov (United States)

    Bess, Tammy L; Harvey, Robert J

    2002-02-01

    We examined Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) score distributions computed using item response theory (IRT) to assess the generalizability of earlier bimodality reports that have been cited in support of the "type" versus "trait" view of personality. Using the BILOG IRT program to score a sample of approximately 12,000 individuals who participated in leadership development programs, theta score distributions for the 4 dimensions of the MBTI computed using 10 (the BILOG default) versus 50 quadrature points were compared. Results indicated that past reports of bimodality were artifacts caused by BILOG's default use of a small number of quadrature points; when larger numbers of points were used, score distributions became strongly center-weighted. Although our findings are not supportive of the "type"-based hypothesis, the extremely high correlations between theta scores (rs > .996) suggest that no practical differences would be expected as a function of the number-of-quadrature-points decision.

    2004-01-01

    A revised iterative method based on Green function defined by quadratures along a single trajectory is proposed to solve the low-lying quantum wave function for Schroedinger equation. Specially a new expression of the perturbed energy is obtained, which is much simpler than the traditional one. The method is applied to solve the unharmonic oscillator potential. The revised iteration procedure gives exactly the same result as those based on the single trajectory quadrature method. A comparison of the revised iteration method to the old one is made using the example of Stark effect. The obtained results are consistent to each other after making power expansion.

    2002-09-01

    An architecture of a surface acoustic wave (SAW) processor based on an artificial neural network is proposed for an automatic recognition of different types of digital passband modulation. Three feed-forward networks are trained to recognize filtered and unfiltered binary phase shift keying (BPSK) and quadrature phase shift keying (QPSK) signals, as well as unfiltered BPSK, QPSK, and 16 quadrature amplitude (16QAM) signals. Performance of the processor in the presence of additive white Gaussian noise (AWGN) is simulated. The influence of second-order effects in SAW devices, phase, and amplitude errors on the performance of the processor also is studied.

  15. Quantum cryptography with squeezed states

    CERN Document Server

    Hillery, M

    1999-01-01

    A quantum key distribution scheme based on the use of displaced squeezed vacuum states is presented. The states are squeezed in one of two field quadrature components, and the value of the squeezed component is used to encode a character from an alphabet. The uncertainty relation between quadrature components prevents an eavesdropper from determining both with enough precision to determine the character being sent. Losses degrade the performance of this scheme, but it is possible to use phase-sensitive amplifiers to boost the signal and partially compensate for their effect.

    2010-01-01

    Full Text Available Doppler ultrasound systems are widely used to study blood flow and diagnosis of vascular diseases. An important characteristic of these systems is the ability to detect the direction of the blood flow. Most Doppler ultrasound systems apply a quadrature demodulation technique on the ultrasonic transducer output signal. Therefore additional treatment is necessary to separate forward and reverse flow signals. This work presents a digital method to convert signals in quadrature into directional signals using a Fast Fourier Transform (FFT approach. Validation of the method has been achieved using simulated Doppler ultrasound signals.

    2016-05-01

    We construct the photon-added coherent states of a noncommutative harmonic oscillator associated to a q -deformed oscillator algebra. Various nonclassical properties of the corresponding system are explored, first, by studying two different types of higher-order quadrature squeezing, namely, the Hillery type and the Hong-Mandel type, and second, by testing the sub-Poissonian nature of photon statistics in higher order with the help of the correlation function and the Mandel parameter. Also, we compare the behavior of different types of quadrature and photon number squeezing of our system with those of the ordinary harmonic oscillator by considering the same set of parameters.

    We investigate theoretically the properties of squeezed states generated using degenerate parametric down conversion in lossy cavities. We show that the Lindblad master equation, which governs the evolution of this system, has as its solution a squeezed thermal state with an effective temperature and squeezing parameter that depends on time. We derive analytical solutions for the time-evolution of quadrature noise, thermal photon number, squeezing parameter, and total photon number under different pumping regimes. We also find the steady state limits of the quadrature noises and discuss the $ g^{(2)} $ factor of the generated light inside the cavity in the steady state.

    2015-10-26

    A novel residual-type a posteriori error analysis technique is developed for multipoint flux mixed finite element methods for flow in porous media in two or three space dimensions. The derived a posteriori error estimator for the velocity and pressure error in L-norm consists of discretization and quadrature indicators, and is shown to be reliable and efficient. The main tools of analysis are a locally postprocessed approximation to the pressure solution of an auxiliary problem and a quadrature error estimate. Numerical experiments are presented to illustrate the competitive behavior of the estimator.

    All-digital frequency synthesis using band-pass sigma-delta modulation to achieve spectrally clean single-bit output is presented and mathematically analyzed resulting in a complete model to predict stability and output spectrum. The quadrature homodyne filter architecture is introduced resulting in efficient implementations of carrier-frequency centred bandpass filters for the modulator. A multiplier-less version of the quadrature homodyne filter architecture is also introduced to reduce complexity maintaining clean in-band spectrum.

    The complex probability function is important in many areas of physics and many techniques have been developed in an attempt to compute it for some z quickly and e ciently. Most prominent are the methods that use Gauss-Hermite quadrature, which uses the roots of the nth degree Hermite polynomial and corresponding weights to approximate the complex probability function. This document serves as an overview and discussion of the use, shortcomings, and potential improvements on the Gauss-Hermite quadrature for the complex probability function.

    Various technologies for continuous-variable quantum key distribution without transmitting a transmitter's local oscillator are described herein. A receiver on an optical transmission channel uses an oscillator signal generated by a light source at the receiver's location to perform interferometric detection on received signals. An optical reference pulse is sent by the transmitter on the transmission channel and the receiver computes a phase offset of the transmission based on quadrature measurements of the reference pulse. The receiver can then compensate for the phase offset between the transmitter's reference and the receiver's reference when measuring quadratures of received data pulses.

    2005-01-01

    Optimization of mapping rule of bit-interleaved Turbo coded modulation with 16 quadrature amplitude modulation (QAM) is investigated based on different impacts of various encoded bits sequence on Turbo decoding performance. Furthermore, bit-interleaved in-phase and quadrature phase (I-Q) Turbo coded modulation scheme are designed similarly with I-Q trellis coded modulation (TCM). Through performance evaluation and analysis, it can be seen that the novel mapping rule outperforms traditional one and the I-Q Turbo coded modulation can not achieve good performance as expected. Therefore, there is not obvious advantage in using I-Q method in bit-interleaved Turbo coded modulation.

    2015-04-14

    Uncertainty quantification in aerodynamic simulations calls for efficient numerical methods to reduce computational cost, especially for uncertainties caused by random geometry variations which involve a large number of variables. This paper compares five methods, including quasi-Monte Carlo quadrature, polynomial chaos with coefficients determined by sparse quadrature and by point collocation, radial basis function and a gradient-enhanced version of kriging, and examines their efficiency in estimating statistics of aerodynamic performance upon random perturbation to the airfoil geometry which is parameterized by independent Gaussian variables. The results show that gradient-enhanced surrogate methods achieve better accuracy than direct integration methods with the same computational cost.

    Quantum noise of optical solitons is analysed based on the exact solutions of the quantum nonlinear Schrodmger equation (QNSE) and the construction of the quantum soliton states. The noise limits are obtained for the local photon number and for the local quadrature phase amplitude. They are larger than the vacuum fluctuation. So in the fundamental soliton states the variance of the local photon number and the local quadrature phase amplitude cannot be squeezed The sohton states with the minimum noise are quasi-coherent states, in which the quantum dispersion effects are negligible.

    As important members of nonclassical states of light, squeezed states and entangled states are basic resources for realizing quantum measurements and constructing quantum information networks. We experimentally demonstrate that the two types of nonclassical optical states can be generated from an optical parametric oscillator (OPO) involving a periodically poled KTiOPO4 crystal with a domain-inversion period of 51.7 μm, by changing the polarization of the pump laser. When a vertically polarized 671 nm laser is used to pump the OPO, the intra-cavity frequency-down-conversion with type-0 quasi-phase matching is realized and the output optical beam is a quadrature amplitude squeezed state of light at the wavelength of 1342 nm with the fluctuation of quadrature component of 3.17 dB below the quantum noise limit (QNL). If the pump laser is horizontally polarized, the condition of the type-II quasi-phase matching is satisfied and the output optical beam becomes Einstein-Podolsky-Rosen entangled state of light with correlation variances of both quadrature amplitude-sum and quadrature phase-difference of 2.2 dB below the corresponding QNL.

  8. Performance of the Adaptive Collision Source (ACS) Method for Discrete Ordinates in Parallel Environments

    Science.gov (United States)

    Walters, William J.; Haghighat, Alireza

    2014-06-01

    A new collision source method has been developed to solve the Linear Boltzmann Equation (LBE) more efficiently by adaptation of the angular quadrature order. The angular adaptation method is unique in that the flux from each scattering source iteration is obtained separately, with potentially a different quadrature order. This allows for an optimal use of processing power, by using a high order quadrature for the first few iterations that need it, before shifting to lower order quadratures for the remaining iterations. This is essentially an extension of the first collision source method, and we call it the adaptive collision source method (ACS). The ACS methodolog y has been implemented in the TITAN discrete ordinates code, and has shown a speedup of 2-3 on a test problem, with very little loss of accuracy (within a provided adaptive tolerance). Further, the code has been extended to work in parallel environments by angular decomposition. Although the method requires increased parallel communication, tests have shown excellent scalability, with parallel fractions of up to 99%.

    2007-01-01

    The authors study the tractability and strong tractability of a multivariate integration problem in the worst case setting for weighted 1-periodic continuous functions spaces of d coordinates with absolutely convergent Fourier series. The authors reduce the initial error by a factor ε for functions from the unit ball of the weighted periodic continuous functions spaces. Tractability is the minimal number of function samples required to solve the problem in polynomial in ε-1 and d, and the strong tractability is the presence of only a polynomial dependence in ε-1. This problem has been recently studied for quasi-Monte Carlo quadrature rules, quadrature rules with non-negative coefficients,and rules for which all quadrature weights are arbitrary for weighted Korobov spaces of smooth periodic functions of d variables. The authors show that the tractability and strong tractability of a multivariate integration problem in worst case setting hold for the weighted periodic continuous functions spaces with absolutely convergent Fourier series under the same assumptions as in Ref. [14] on the weights of the Korobov space for quasi-Monte Carlo rules and rules for which all quadrature weights are non-negative. The arguments are not constructive.

  1. Squeezed State Effects on Continuous Variable Quantum Erasing

    2008-03-01

    Experimental verification of complementarity using quantum erasing for the continuous variable (CV) infinite dimensional Hilbert space has been considered. [1] The complemetary pair is that of the canonically conjugate amplitude and phase quadratures of light. The amplitude quadrature is labeled to a squeezed meter signal by quantum nondemolition (QND) [2] entanglement coupling. [3] Knowledge of which eigenstate (WE) can be obtained by measuring this amplitude in the meter state, and can thereafter be `lost' by measuring the quadrature phase of the meter, thus restoring the quadrature phase of the signal beam in a process known as quantum erasure. [4] The coupling, i.e. the labeling of the signal state to the meter state, is implemented with a beam splitter coupled to the squeezed light meter beam. [4] We investigate the effects of using the unitary squeeze operator S(z)=exp.5ex1 -.1em/ -.15em.25ex2 (z*a^2 - za^+2) where z = re^i(squeezing angle) on selected coherent states under certain conditions.

    We show that there are nonclassical states with lesser joint fluctuations of phase and number than any classical state. This is rather paradoxical since one would expect classical coherent states to be always of minimum uncertainty. The same result is obtained when we replace phase by a phase-dependent field quadrature. Number and phase uncertainties are assessed using variance and Holevo relation.

    2014-01-01

    We present a system-on-a-chip (SoC) for use in high-frequency capacitive micromachined ultrasonic transducer (CMUT) imaging systems. This SoC consists of trans-impedance amplifiers (TIA), delay locked loop (DLL) based clock multiplier, quadrature sampler, and pulse width modulator (PWM). The SoC down converts RF echo signal to baseband by quadrature sampling which facilitates modulation. To send data through a 1.6 m wire in the catheter which has limited bandwidth and is vulnerable to noise, the SoC creates a pseudo-digital PWM signal which can be used for back telemetry or wireless readout of the RF data. In this implementation, using a 0.35-μm std. CMOS process, the TIA and single-to-differential (STD) converter had 45 MHz bandwidth, the quadrature sampler had 10.1 dB conversion gain, and the PWM had 5-bit ENoB. Preliminary results verified front-end functionality, and the power consumption of a TIA, STD, quadrature sampler, PWM, and clock multiplier was 26 mW from a 3 V supply.

    2015-03-01

    We revisit Ozawa's uncertainty principle (OUP) in the framework of noncommutative (NC) quantum mechanics. We derive a matrix version of OUP accommodating any NC structure in the phase space, and compute NC corrections to lowest order for two measurement interactions, namely the backaction evading quadrature amplifier and noiseless quadrature transducers. These NC corrections alter the nature of the measurement interaction, as a noiseless interaction may acquire noise, and an interaction of independent intervention may become dependent on the object system. However the most striking result is that noncommutativity may lead to a violation of the OUP itself. The NC corrections for the backaction evading quadrature amplifier reveal a new term which may potentially be amplified in such a way that the violation of the OUP becomes experimentally testable. On the other hand, the NC corrections to the noiseless quadrature transducer shows an incompatibility of this model with NC quantum mechanics. We discuss the implications of this incompatibility for NC quantum mechanics and for Ozawa's uncertainty principle.

  12. On the numerical calculation of Hadamard finite-part integrals

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    1998-10-01

    Full Text Available In this paper we consider a simple method for calculating integrals possessing strong singularities, to be interpreted in the Hadamard finite-part sense. We partition the original interval of integration and then integrate over the subintervals by using suitably modified low-order Gaussian-type quadratures. Convergence is shown under suitable assumptions and numerical evidence supports the theoretical findings.

    We examine the performance of a nonlinear fiber gyroscope for improved signal detection beating the quantum limits of its linear counterparts. The performance is examined when the nonlinear gyroscope is illuminated by practical field states, such as coherent and quadrature squeezed states. This is compared with the case of more ideal probes such as photon-number states.
