In this paper, we propose an efficient algorithm to solve the averaging problem on the Lorentz group O ( n , k ) . Firstly, we introduce the geometric structures of O ( n , k ) endowed with a Riemannian metric where geodesic could be writte...

This study has developed a technique for identifying the presence of muscle fatigue based on the spatial changes of the normalised mutual information (NMI) between multiple high density surface electromyography (HD-sEMG) channels. Muscle fatigue in the ti...

Rainfall is an essential index to measure drought, and it is dependent upon various parameters including geographical environment, air temperature and pressure. The nonlinear nature of climatic variables leads to problems such as poor accuracy and instabi...

In this paper, a three-dimensional cancer model was considered using the Caputo-Fabrizio-Caputo and the new fractional derivative with Mittag-Leffler kernel in Liouville-Caputo sense. Special solutions using an iterative scheme via Laplace transform, Sumu...

In this paper, we develop an energy-based, large-scale dynamical system model driven by Markov diffusion processes to present a unified framework for statistical thermodynamics predicated on a stochastic dynamical systems formalism. Specifically, using a ...

Permutation entropy (PeEn) is a complexity measure that originated from dynamical systems theory. Specifically engineered to be robustly applicable to real-world data, the quantity has since been utilised for a multitude of time series analysis tasks. In ...

We investigate herein the spin interaction during collisions between Kerr-(anti-)de Sitter black holes. The spin interaction potential depends on the relative rotation directions of the black holes, and this potential can be released as gravitational radi...

Flowing media in both industrial and natural processes are often characterized as assemblages of densely packed granular materials. Typically, the constitutive relations for the stress tensor and heat flux vector are fundamentally nonlinear. Moreover, the...

Entropy and compression have been used to distinguish fetuses at risk of hypoxia from their healthy counterparts through the analysis of Fetal Heart Rate (FHR). Low correlation that was observed between these two approaches suggests that they capture diff...

In the Bayesian framework, the usual choice of prior in the prediction of homogeneous Poisson processes with random effects is the gamma one. Here, we propose the use of higher order maximum entropy priors. Their advantage is illustrated in a simulation s...

Polyomino graphs is one of the research objectives in statistical physics and in modeling problems of surface chemistry. A random polyomino chain is a subgraph of a polyomino graph. The matching energy is defined as the sum of the absolute values of the z...

[-15]With the growing use of popular social media services like Facebook and Twitter it is challenging to collect all content from the networks without access to the core infrastructure or paying for it. Thus, if all content cannot be collected one must c...

The numerical study of continuum-rarefied gas flows is of considerable interest because it can provide fundamental knowledge regarding flow physics. Recently, the nonlinear coupled constitutive method (NCCM) has been derived from the Boltzmann equation an...
The field of information science has greatly developed, and applications in various fields have emerged. In this paper, we evaluated the coding system in the theory of Tsallis entropy for transmission of messages and aimed to formulate the channel capacit...

How chronic pain affects brain functions remains unclear. As a potential indicator, brain complexity estimated by entropy-based methods may be helpful for revealing the underlying neurophysiological mechanism of chronic pain. In this study, complexity fea...
Second-law analysis (SLA) is an important concept in thermodynamics, which basically assesses energy by its value in terms of its convertibility from one form to another.[...]

We explored the dynamics of two interacting information systems. We show that for the Markovian marginal systems, the driving force for information dynamics is determined by both the information landscape and information flux. While the information landsc...

A solar driven cooling system consisting of a single effect H2O-LiBr absorbtion cooling module (ACS), a parabolic trough collector (PTC), and a storage tank (ST) module is analyzed during one full day operation. The pressurized water is used to transfer h...

It is popular to study a time-dependent nonlinear system by encoding outcomes of measurements into sequences of symbols following certain symbolization schemes. Mostly, symbolizations by threshold crossings or variants of it are applied, but also, the rel...

Many species of plants are found in regions to which they are alien. Their global distributions are characterised by a family of exponential functions of the kind that arise in elementary statistical mechanics (an example in ecology is MacArthur’s broken ...

Specific patterns of brain activity during sleep and waking are recorded in the electroencephalogram (EEG). Time-frequency analysis methods have been widely used to analyse the EEG and identified characteristic oscillations for each vigilance state (VS), ...

In this paper, we would like to systematically explore the implications of non-perturbative effects on entanglement in a many body system. Instead of pursuing the usual path-integral method in a singular space, we attempt to study the wavefunctions in det...

We discuss two examples of oscillations apparently hidden in some experimental results for high-energy multiparticle production processes: (i) the log-periodic oscillatory pattern decorating the power-like Tsallis distributions of transverse momenta; (ii)...
