2022 arXiv   pre-print
Quantum computing has shown great potential in various quantum chemical applications such as drug discovery, material design, and catalyst optimization. Although significant progress has been made in quantum simulation of simple molecules, ab initio simulation of solid-state materials on quantum computers is still in its early stage, mostly owing to the fact that the system size quickly becomes prohibitively large when approaching the thermodynamic limit. In this work, we introduce an

We demonstrate the accuracy and efficiency of our method compared with the conventional methodologies and experiments on solid-state systems with complex electronic structures. These include spin polarized states of a hydrogen chain (1D-H), the equation of states of a boron nitride layer (h-BN) as well as the magnetic ordering in nickel oxide (NiO), a prototypical strongly correlated solid. Our results suggest that quantum embedding combined with a chemically intuitive fragmentation can greatly advance quantum simulation of realistic materials, thereby paving the way for solving important yet classically hard industrial problems on near-term quantum devices.

Retailer's Optimal Procurement Strategy under Supply Disruption and Stochastic Demand: Backup Sourcing or Simultaneous Sourcing

Feng Lin, Jinzhao Shi, Peng Wu, Xingxuan Zhuo
2020 Complexity  
Practically, supply disruption may lead production process to entirely halt (completely disrupted) or the output to differ in the order size (partially disrupted), which makes it more difficult for the retailer to satisfy stochastic market demand. Under the circumstance, the retailer is likely to procure products from two suppliers to effectively alleviate the demand-supply mismatches. Thus, under supply disruption and stochastic demand, this paper develops both backup sourcing and simultaneous

Specifically, (1) under WPP, when the selling price is relatively lower (higher), the retailer is suggested to activate the reliable backup supplier after the realization of supply disruption (demand uncertainty). (2) Under SRP, two scenarios including minor disruption and major disruption can be identified, where the retailer's order quantity from the reliable (unreliable) supplier under minor disruption scenario is more (less) than that under major. (3) Finally, this paper systematically compares the retailer's preferences among WPP, SRP, and SS via theoretical results and numerical examples. That is, when the unreliable supplier is more likely to work normally or shortage cost (selling price) is relatively lower, the retailer prefers SPR regarding the unreliable supplier as backup sourcing due to its lower wholesale price and acceptable supply disruption. Otherwise, the retailer is inclined to WPP regarding the reliable supplier as backup sourcing for ensuring all market demand to be satisfied. In addition, unless the emergency prices of two suppliers are extremely higher, backup sourcing strategies could perform better than simultaneous sourcing strategy.

Evaluating the health status of Robinia pseudoacacia L. by the root exudates

Wei Tianxing, Shi Xin, Zhu Jinzhao, Zhu Qingke, Yukui Rui
2018 Bangladesh Journal of Botany  
The components of root exudates released from healthy and unhealthy black locust (Robinia pseudoacacia L.) root were determined by GC-MS. The results showed that the kinds and contents of root exudates released from Black Locust are different for healthy and unhealthy plants, so it may be evaluated whether the Black Locust plants are healthy or unhealthy by the root exudates. Healthy plants can release more kinds of exudates than unhealthy plants, especially the kinds of acids, alcohol and

Bioaccumulation and chemical forms of cadmium, copper and lead in aquatic plants

JinZhao Hu, AiZhen Zheng, DongLi Pei, GuoXin Shi
2010 Brazilian Archives of Biology and Technology  
The cadmium(Cd), copper(Cu) and lead(Pb) accumulation, as well as their relative content of different chemical forms in Sagittaria sagittifolia L. and Potamogeton crispus L. were determined. The results showed that both the plants had the ability to accumulate large amounts of Cd, Cu and Pb, and they absorbed metals in dose-dependent manners. The roots of S. sagittifolia appeared more sensitive to Cd and Pb than the leaves of P. crispus. The potential of Cu uptake by these two plant tissues was

The Cd, Cu and Pb existed with various forms in the plants. Cd and Pb were mainly in the NaCl extractable form in S. sagittifolia and P. crispus. The HAc and ethanol extractable Cu were the main forms in the root, whereas the ethanol extractable form was the dominant chemical form in the caulis and bulb of the S. sagittifolia L.

Observed Microphysical Characteristics of Stratiform and Convective Precipitation over an Inland Arid Region of the Qinghai–Tibet Plateau

This study analyzed the microphysical characteristics of stratiform and convective precipitation over an inland arid region of Qinghai–Tibet Plateau in summer for the first time. The observed precipitation data were from the OTT Parsivel2 laser raindrop spectrometer and the raindrop size distribution can be described by a gamma distribution and a general exponential distribution. The results indicate that: (1) compared to the exponential distribution, the gamma distribution is the better

Overall, the obtained results will enhance our understanding and facilitate future studies regarding the microphysical characteristics of precipitation in such regions. For example, the obtained Z–R relationship can be a reference for estimating the radar reflectivity factor in this region with higher accuracy.

2017 2017 IEEE Nuclear Science Symposium and Medical Imaging Conference (NSS/MIC)  
We present the design and optimization of a Tomographic Gamma Scanning (TGS) collimator based on Monte Carlo simulations using MCNP5 computer code. In these simulations, an accurate Monte Carlo model of TGS was built and the collimator radius, collimator deep and collimator shape of the TGS are optimized. The simulation results reveal that the collimator aperture radius of 3.1 and depth of 18.6 cm are the high sensitivity when FWHM choose 26.7cm, the rotated hexagon is the optimal shape. Our

Optimal Ordering and Pricing Policies for Seasonal Products: Impacts of Demand Uncertainty and Capital Constraint

Jinzhao Shi, Richard Y. K. Fung, Ju'e Guo
2016 Discrete Dynamics in Nature and Society  
With a stochastic price-dependent market demand, this paper investigates how demand uncertainty and capital constraint affect retailer's integrated ordering and pricing policies towards seasonal products. The retailer with capital constraint is normalized to be with zero capital endowment while it can be financed by an external bank. The problems are studied under a low and high demand uncertainty scenario, respectively. Results show that when demand uncertainty level is relatively low, the
more » ... iler faced with demand uncertainty always sets a lower price than the riskless one, while its order quantity may be smaller or larger than the riskless retailer's which depends on the level of market size. When adding a capital constraint, the retailer will strictly prefer a higher price but smaller quantity policy. However, in a high demand uncertainty scenario, the impacts are more intricate. The retailer faced with demand uncertainty will always order a larger quantity than the riskless one if demand uncertainty level is high enough (above a critical value), while the capital-constrained retailer is likely to set a lower price than the well-funded one when demand uncertainty level falls within a specific interval. Therefore, it can be further concluded that the impact of capital constraint on the retailer's pricing decision can be influenced by different demand uncertainty levels.
