    Based on the numerical differential theory, it is available to calculate the approximate first derivative of the target-node by using numerical differentiation formulas when the discrete sampling points of the unknown target function on specified interval are given. But for the target-nodes close to the boundary, it may be unable to use the center differentiation formulas involving multiple nodes because of the lack of sampling points on one side of the target-node. Besides, an accelerating change of the first derivative of the target-node may occur in some target functions. However, the use of forward/backward differentiation formulas simply takes the nodes on one side of the target-node into consideration, which probably makes the formulas difficult to adapt to such a change, and thus leads to less accuracy in estimating the first derivative of the target-node. Actually, for the target-nodes close to the right boundary, it is available to move the backward differentiation formulas one node ahead to calculate the first derivatives. Therefore, one-node-ahead numerical differentiation formulas are proposed and investigated. Experimental results verify and show that the first derivatives of the target-nodes with high computational precision can be obtained by using the one-node-ahead numerical differentiation formulas.

    Spectrum sensing-throughput tradeoff is investigated for a cognitive MIMO system. The objective is to find the optimal spectrum sensing time and optimal power allocation to maximize the throughput of secondary user. Simulation results show that there is indeed a unique optimal sensing time to make the throughput achieve the maximum. Further, the throughput of SU can be improved by using optimal power allocation. The throughput of SU with different spectrum sensing algorithms including energy detection and eigenvalue-based detection is compared by simulations. The results show that the eigenvaluebased detection is very appropriate for cognitive MIMO system, which is not only more robust than energy detection, but also satisfies the requirement of throughput.

    Stochastic vibration spectrum always contains sudden changes and discontinuance.On a wavelet denoising process, the soft-threshold method will make the estimation signal ambiguous at the discontinuity point, while the hard-threshold method will cause pseudo-Gibbs phenomena around the signal's discontinuity point. Through analysis on the statistic model of the stochastic vibration spectrum, a noise statistic model of numeric field vibration spectrum is established, and the nonlinear relationship between the filtering threshold-value and the wavelet transform scale is derived theoretically for providing a base for adaptive-threshold wavelet transform denoising. Finally,an universal adaptive denoising algorithm for vibration spectrum estimation based on wavelet transform is proposed. Simulation results show that the theoretical analysis is correct and the algorithm is good.

    β-Polypropylene (PP) blends were prepared with supported β-nucleator nucleated PP and PS, AS, ABS, respectively. The β-nucleation, crystallization behavior, melting characteristic and β-crystal content were investigated by DSC and WAXD. It was observed that the crystallization temperatures of β-nucleated PP slightly decreased with increasing styrenic polymers content, especially ABS. Addition of styrenic polymers had no influence on melting characteristic of β-nucleated PP, and three melting peaks were observed. Although the content of β-crystal in β-nucleated PP blends slightly decreased with increasing styrenic polymers content, β-PP blends were obtained with β-crystal content above 80%.

    Dihydroindazolocarbazoles(DHI-carbazoles) are the potent dual inhibitors to VEGFR2 and Tie-2. In this work, the mechanism of interaction between VEGFR2/Tie-2 and DHI-carbazoles was performed with Surflex-dock. The results from molecular docking indicated that DHI-carbazoles competitively bound to the active site, which was the substrate ATP in VEGFR2/Tie-2 with high affinity. The differences of activity between VEGFR2 and Tie-2 resulted from the minor difference of active pockets. Hydrophobic effect played a key role in the formation and stability. Hydrogen bond and electrostatic effect also contributed to the difference. This work elucidated the antitumor mechanism of the DHI-carbazoles as a dual potent inhibitor and provided theoretical basis for the design of tyrosine kinase inhibitors.

    The comparison of the terrain data from the past 40 years shows that the inlet of the Xiaomiaohong channel has an evolutionary tendency of deposition in the north and erosion in the south. The north trough was silted constantly to disappear while the south trough developed adequately. The hydrodynamic mechanism of the change in deposition and erosion in different channels was discussed based on the analysis of field data and the tidal current Mathematical model. The reason that a state of deposition in the north and erosion in the south exists in the Xiaomiaohong channel during the past years is closely related to the tidal current characteristics in this area. The ebb flow discharge is stronger than flood in the south and middle waterways of the inlet, with an “ebb-dominated” style. On the contrary, the north waterway has a “flood-dominated” style. The sediment transportation shows a trend of northward inflow and southward outflow, consistent with the trend of deposition and atrophy in the north waterway and erosion and extension in the south waterway.

    Model identification of medium and longterm hydrologic forecast is studied in terms of pretreatment, data length and ways of modeling which are taken as primary factors for the prediction results. Based on finite sampling information criterion (FSIC), combined information criterion (CIC) is utilized to choose the proper order of the model. Kalman filtering is also used for nonlinear prediction. It is concluded that: 1) In model identification, reasonability of the pretreatment should be tested through the prediction results from the model if it significantly reduces the complexity of the model. 2) Data length of modeling should be long enough to reflect inherent oscillations of the time series while excessive amount brings in extra complexity, more time-consuming and less robustness. 3) Sliding model is better for larger flux and the streamflow peaks prediction, and sacrifices the precise of predicting relatively low run-off. 4) Kalman filtering used as a prediction method of runoff can remarkably raise the forecast effects in any sections of the range with the accuracy rate of peakprediction up to 63.64%.

    In order to study the influence of distribution of geochemical elements on mineralization, this study uses Q-Q plot and cluster analysis to discuss the space distribution of elements in Liujiashan of northern Guangdong province. 12 elements related to mineralization were analyzed on 1573 drainage sediment samples from Liujiashan to recognize their fractal distribution. In contrast to traditional anomaly recognition method with iterative mean ±σ, this paper uses C-A fractal to separate anomalies from their background values, and calculates multifractal spectrum function. The C-A fractal analysis unites element content and frequency distribution of statistic method and singularity space configuration. It is useful for distinguishing chemical background and anomalous values which are relate to mineralization, and can provide significant clue for mineral potential evaluation.

    348 sediment samples were taken from the Pearl River Estuary to analyze their major element contents, and to study geochemical characteristics and geological significance. Results show that the main chemical compositions in surface sediments are SiO2 and Al2O3, with average contents up to 60.1% and 15.1% respectively. The content of SiO2 increases from estuary to sea, while the content of Al2 O3 decreases. Correlation analysis and factor analysis show that SiO2, Al2O3, P2O5, K2O, TiO2, MnO, Fe2O3 and CaO are the most important factors in surface sediments, mainly originated from continent and marine calcicolous livings. The elements originated from marine include Na2O and MgO, and K2O is derived from continent and marine.

    55 terraces along 32 rivers in eastern Guangdong and 14C and TL ages from 25 samples are studied in this paper. There are at most 6 stages of river terraces in the region, of which the highest one is 70 m in height, and is distributed near present-day main riverbed. The first stage terraces include normality terraces (in the upper part of Lijui Town in Longchuan), semiburied terraces (from Lijui to Yuanzhou Town in Boluo), and buried terraces (from the downstream of Yuanzhou to the Dongjiang River Delta), with decreasing ages. This indicates that the tectonic lift occurred earlier or the lift rate was faster in the areas of river head and the tectonic activity was gradually stabilized or sunk in the areas of mid-downstream. There are at least 12 sites where typical denudeplanation surface gravel layers were found. They show the following characteristics: (1) They are distributed on the highest terraces with elevation of 20~200 m, coincident with local denudation platform. (2) They are located on terraces of the highest rank with large area in the region. (3) The denudeplanation surface gravel layers in Yulu of Shiyan Town, Pingling Town, Dongkeng Town, Shuichun Town, and Zhangfang Town are formed from former rivers. The valleys-in-valleys became today's little rivers with narrow riverbed and flood land, maybe with the first terraces, during the past hundreds of thousands years. (4) The denude-planation surfaces have two slope directions, towards the valley and the downstream in the basin, but generally towards the South China Sea.
