2019.The quantized Hall resistance (Nobel Prize 1985) plays a crucial role for the realization of this new SI system since this quantum resistance can be used not only for high precision measurements of electrical standards, but also for a new realization of a kilogram by comparing electrical and mechanical forces with the Watt balance.
Therefore, the toxicity and therapeutic efficacy information was quantized. In the information table, the toxicity was classified into no toxicity, little toxicity, having toxicity, and high toxicity.
He discusses theory on the separable approximation of multivariate functions, multi-linear algebra and nonlinear tensor approximation, super-fast computations using quantized tensor approximation, and a tensor approach to multidimensional integro-differential equations.
Our first step towards a covariant canonical quantization begins with defining a quantized space-time and its quanta.
Quantization also has become a research hotspot these years, paper [17] notes that quantization process plays an important role in the networked control systems, an adaptive quantizer can help to alleviate network congestion and maintain system stability, paper [18] proposes a quantized state feedback strategy for global and asymptotical stabilization of the networked control systems, papers [19, 20] address the problem of output feedback control for networked control systems with limited information, it should be noted that the impact of quantification cannot be ignored, and, in [18, 19, 21], the quantization deviation is disposed as an uncertainty.
The NDR was related to the resonant electron tunneling through a nanoscale object with a quantized energy spectrum built in the filament.
Noorkami and Mersereau [12] introduced a framework for robust watermarking of H.264 encoded video by using the quantized AC coefficient to obtain optimal detection of video watermarking.
The current depends on external potential applied to the device, if a small potential difference applied, the energy of the electrons on the junction would be less than the quantized energy levels of the quantum well, which result in a small current flowing as depicted in figure (1a).
As early as 1956, Kalman investigated the effect of quantization in a sampled data control system and pointed out that if a stabilizing controller was quantized using a finite-alphabet quantizer, the feedback system would exhibit limit cycles and chaotic behavior [23].
The fusion centre performs the speech enhancement task using the transmitted quantized microphone signals (dotted lines) and takes a decision on the optimal bit depth for each communicated microphone signal (dashed lines).
Since each of the discrete levels is associated with a sinusoidal wave function, we can attribute the behavior of resistance against defect position to the amplitude of the quantized lateral wave functions.
