Frustration induced inversion of magnetocaloric effect and enhanced cooling power in substituted Pyrochlore Iridates [article]

Vinod Kumar Dwivedi, Prabhat Mandal, Soumik Mukhopadhyay
2021 arXiv   pre-print
We investigate the effect of partial replacement of extended 5d Ir4+ sites by localized 3d Cr3+ moments on the magnetocaloric properties of Y2Ir2O7 (YIO) pyrochlore iridates. We find that Y2Ir2-xCrxO7 (YICO) undergoes cluster glass transition, possibly due to RKKY like interaction between localized Cr3+ moments occupying random sites in the pyrochlore network, mediated by 5d Ir conduction electrons. The coexistence of ferromagnetic and antiferromagnetic clusters give rise to the conventional

Although the value of conventional MCE and inverse MCE in substituted Iridates are not large, the effect spans over a giant working temperature window, thus leading to orders of magnitude enhancement of cooling power, the value being comparable to standard magnetocalric materials.

2016 Indian Journal of Science and Technology  
Objectives: The purpose of the present study is to focus on the types of wastages that generated as a byproduct from tea processing industries. Quality and quantities of tea waste and their proper management or waste disposal method were determined in Terai and Duars region of West Bengal. There are very few companies or societies who buy a very little amount of tea waste that does not have any significant impact on the tea waste management as a whole. Lastly, there is a lack of comprehensive

Methods: Random cluster sampling technique in selecting 20 study sites, out of the 30 tea factories that are spread in four major tea producing districts namely foothills of Darjeeling, Jalpaiguri, Alipurduar and a part of Cooch Behar were performed. Primary and secondary data are documented during data collection, using questionnaires, interviews, observation and necessary photographs were taken. Findings: Authors have attempted to bring out this work to develop some management strategy of tea waste. Our survey report indicated that effective management strategies would improvise socio-economic status of tea garden workers as well as owners by utilizing this waste in poultry and fish feed, garden manure and caffeine extraction. Applications/Improvement: Fibers from tea waste can now be converted into different industrially implemented products like low cost absorbent during removal of pollutants from waste water. New technologies are emerged through which factory tea waste might be utilized for the preparation of n-triacontanol, which is commercially valuable bio-nutrient and has important growth promoting activities of leaf primordia.

To understand deep learning we need to understand kernel learning [article]

Mikhail Belkin, Siyuan Ma, Soumik Mandal
2018 arXiv   pre-print
Generalization performance of classifiers in deep learning has recently become a subject of intense study. Deep models, typically over-parametrized, tend to fit the training data exactly. Despite this "overfitting", they perform well on test data, a phenomenon not yet fully understood. The first point of our paper is that strong performance of overfitted classifiers is not a unique feature of deep learning. Using six real-world and two synthetic datasets, we establish experimentally that kernel
more » ... machines trained to have zero classification or near zero regression error perform very well on test data, even when the labels are corrupted with a high level of noise. We proceed to give a lower bound on the norm of zero loss solutions for smooth kernels, showing that they increase nearly exponentially with data size. We point out that this is difficult to reconcile with the existing generalization bounds. Moreover, none of the bounds produce non-trivial results for interpolating solutions. Second, we show experimentally that (non-smooth) Laplacian kernels easily fit random labels, a finding that parallels results for ReLU neural networks. In contrast, fitting noisy data requires many more epochs for smooth Gaussian kernels. Similar performance of overfitted Laplacian and Gaussian classifiers on test, suggests that generalization is tied to the properties of the kernel function rather than the optimization process. Certain key phenomena of deep learning are manifested similarly in kernel methods in the modern "overfitted" regime. The combination of the experimental and theoretical results presented in this paper indicates a need for new theoretical ideas for understanding properties of classical kernel methods. We argue that progress on understanding deep learning will be difficult until more tractable "shallow" kernel methods are better understood.

Thus, the opinion/sentiment mining has been adopted as a subject of increasingly research interest in the recent years. Being a participant in the Shared Task Challenge, we have developed a Conditional Random Field based system to accomplish the Aspect Based Sentiment Analysis task.

Reconciling modern machine-learning practice and the classical bias–variance trade-off

Mikhail Belkin, Daniel Hsu, Siyuan Ma, Soumik Mandal
2019 Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences of the United States of America  
Breakthroughs in machine learning are rapidly changing science and society, yet our fundamental understanding of this technology has lagged far behind. Indeed, one of the central tenets of the field, the bias–variance trade-off, appears to be at odds with the observed behavior of methods used in modern machine-learning practice. The bias–variance trade-off implies that a model should balance underfitting and overfitting: Rich enough to express underlying structure in data and simple enough to

Classically, such models would be considered overfitted, and yet they often obtain high accuracy on test data. This apparent contradiction has raised questions about the mathematical foundations of machine learning and their relevance to practitioners. In this paper, we reconcile the classical understanding and the modern practice within a unified performance curve. This "double-descent" curve subsumes the textbook U-shaped bias–variance trade-off curve by showing how increasing model capacity beyond the point of interpolation results in improved performance. We provide evidence for the existence and ubiquity of double descent for a wide spectrum of models and datasets, and we posit a mechanism for its emergence. This connection between the performance and the structure of machine-learning models delineates the limits of classical analyses and has implications for both the theory and the practice of machine learning.

1,4-Naphthoquinone analogs, such as plumbagin, are toxic compounds due to their redox cycling and thiolreactive properties. Results: The p300 inhibitor PTK1, a plumbagin derivative with greatly reduced toxicity, was synthesized and characterized. Conclusion: PTK1 is a reversible, non-competitive inhibitor of p300 KAT activity with reduced toxicity. Significance: These studies provide insight into naphthoquinone-mediated KAT inhibition and describe the synthesis of a therapeutically important,

Here, we report that free thiol reactivity and redox cycling properties greatly contribute to the toxicity of plumbagin. A reactive 3rd position in the naphthoquinone derivatives is essential for thiol reactivity and enhances redox cycling. Using this clue, we synthesized PTK1, harboring a methyl substitution at the 3rd position of plumbagin. This molecule loses its thiol reactivity completely and its redox cycling ability to a lesser extent. Mechanistically, non-competitive, reversible binding of the inhibitor to the lysine acetyltransferase (KAT) domain of p300 is largely responsible for the acetyltransferase inhibition. Remarkably, the modified inhibitor PTK1 was a nearly nontoxic inhibitor of p300. The present report elucidates the mechanism of acetyltransferase activity inhibition by 1,4-naphthoquinones, which involves redox cycling and nucleophilic adduct formation, and it suggests possible routes of synthesis of the non-toxic inhibitor.
