    A new way to construct high order symplectic algorithms is proposed based on weighted residual method. Firstly, in the time subdomain, the corresponding integral equation of Galerkin method for Hamilton dual equation based on the idea of weighted residual method is proposed, then the generalized displacement and momentum are approximated by the same Lagrange interpolation within the time subdomain, which are substituted into the corresponding integral equation. By numerical integration, the original initial value problem of dynamics is expressed as algebraic equations with displacement and momentum at the interpolation points as unknown variables. For nonlinear dynamic systems, a simple scheme of choosing initial values, which can significantly improve the computational efficiency for NewtonRaphson method, is presented. Finally, the symplecticity and performance of the proposed algorithms are discussed in detail. Compared with the same order symplectic RungeKutta methods, the accuracy of the two methods are almost the same, but the proposed algorithms are much simpler and less computational expense. The numerical results illustrate that the proposed algorithms show good performance in accuracy and efficiency.

    In order to analyze the vibration stability of submerged floating tunnel tether under two different boundary conditions, the vibration equation of tether was set up. The equation was simplified by Galerkin method. The vibration stability of tether was judged by Lyapunov exponent method. Effects of damping ratio , bending stiffness and span of tether , current velocity and vortex-induced frequency on vibration stability of tether were analyzed and compared under different boundary conditions. It may be concluded that  tether is been gradually from stable state to unstable state as the current velocity increases under two different boundary conditions. The tether tends to be stable as the damping ratio, bending stiffness of tether increases, when the vortex-induced frequency  under two different boundary conditions is close to the tether. It will occur vortex-induced resonance and the tether is easy to be unstable, and the unstable region expands gradually as the current velocity increases under two different boundary conditions, but the unstable region is larger which under the combination sliding boundary.

    To settle various problems in computation tree logic possibility measure model validation process, such as high time complexity and low efficiency performance. The I-PM_CTL algorithm is proposed. The algorithm is based on the traditional model checking mark algorithm, so that it is adaptable to the need of mark detection of large-scale, highly complex formulas. The steps of the algorithm are as follows. Fristly, the logic tree formulas are calculated using relevant possibility measure, which is a preprocessing step to identify the uniqueness of the common sub-expressions. Secondly, it specifies the state of common sub-expressions and I-PM_CTL model, while maintaining the equilibrium of model checking space. Finally, this algorithm implements the verification, ensuring the I-PM_CTL formulas  verification to be completed in one time with high probability. The results of simulation experiments show that the IPM_CTL algorithm not only effectively reduces time complexity, but also improves the verification performance.

    The steady state positive solutions of a predator-prey model with diffusion are studied. A priori estimate for positive solutions is obtained by using maximum principle. Applying to the local bifurcation theory, the existence of local bifurcation solutions is given. It follows from the global bifurcation theory that the local bifurcation solution can be extended to global bifurcation solution and the trend is obtained. Then a necessary and sufficient condition for the existence of positive solutions is obtained. By the stability theory, the stability of local bifurcation solutions is investigated. Finally, the theoretical results are verified and complemented by the numerical simulation.

    Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FTIR) and nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy (1H NMR and 13C NMR) were used to investigate the structural characteristics of dissolved organic matter (DOM) in the rhizosphere soil of a low-Cd cultivar (QLQ) and a high-Cd cultivar (T308) of water spinach (Ipomoea aquatica Forsk.). The results showed that carbohydrates were the main components of DOM in the rhizosphere soil of the two cultivars, and the contents of alkyl and aromatic substances were relatively low. There were obvious differences in the structural characteristics of DOM between the two cultivars. The relative contents of carboxylic C and longchain aliphatic C of DOM in the rhizosphere soil of QLQ were lower than those of T308, but that of aromatic substance of QLQ was higher. Alkyl substance of DOM in the rhizosphere soil of QLQ possessed the characteristics of relatively high content,short branched chain and high branched chain. Although carbohydrate H content of DOM in the rhizosphere soil of QLQ was lower than that of T308, carbohydrate C content was higher than that of T308, which suggested that there might be differences in the structure of carbohydrates of DOM in the rhizosphere soil between the cultivars. The results indicated that the structural characteristics of DOM in the rhizosphere soil of the low-Cd cultivar might influence Cd behavior and bioavailability, leading to relatively low ability to activate soil Cd, which would be associated with its low Cd accumulation.

    Spatiotemporal variations of extreme temperature events in Xinjiang have been analyzed based on daily average temperature, daily maximum temperature and daily minimum temperature data from 50 meteorological stations covering the period from 1961 to 2010 using statistical methods and 22 extreme temperature indices commonly used in extreme climate events researches. Daily temperature and mean annual temperature in Xinjiang increased significantly after 1996, minimum temperature in winter and summer rose significantly, and the warming magnitude in winter was greater than in summer. Except for GTmax, GTavg, DTR and TXx, TNx, TXn, TNn, all cold and warm indices are characterized by significant downward and upward trends respectively in the late 1990s. Overall, the magnitudes of warming tendency of cold indices, low temperature indices, night indices are obviously greater than those of warm indices, high temperature indices and day indices,and they are greater in basins than in mountains. The mutation of trend analysis of extreme cold indices occurred in the midandlate 1980s, and that of extreme warm indices occurred in the late 1990s. The warming tendency can be checked obviously no matter with average temperature indicators or changes of extreme temperature indices. Average temperature (GTavg) and maximum temperature (GTmax) during growing season are characterized by an upward trend. The increase of daily average temperature will enhance the intensity of heat wave days (HWDI) and lengthen the growing season. Growing season length is longer in southern Xinjiang than in the northern and eastern Xinjiang, and it is longer in basins than in mountains.

    This study focuses on the mineralogical composition and texture of redbed soft rock. On the basis of the statistical analysis of the redbed soft rock characteristics, such as the composition, grain size observed under polarized light microscope, the effects of composition and texture on the mechanical properties were discussed respectively. The study on rock samples has shown that: ① the compressive strength and modulus of elasticity show a rising trend with the increase of mineralogy content and grain size; ② as average grain size increases, its compressive strength and modulus of elasticity become stronger accordingly. When the average grain size reaches a numerical range (diameter is about 025 mm), the compressive strength and modulus of elasticity would bump up at the same time, according to which we can speculate that mineralogical composition has a bigger effect on the mechanical properties than the grain size.

    The number of bus stops is a key factor for transit accessibility and system efficiency. Adding more stops along a route will increase coverage of potential riders, but slow down travel speeds, and then decrease system efficiency. The purpose of this study is to identify redundant stops and improve the quality of public transit services. We successfully integrate the tabu search algorithm (TS) and a GIS spatial optimization model called spatial interaction coverage (SIC) model to address this problem. This method can easily identify redundant stops without reducing the interaction between the demand areas and the transit facilities. In addition, a stop coverage ratio index (SCRI) is introduced as one of the indicators to access the attraction of the transit facilities. The proposed method has been tested in a bus route of Dongguan, China. The comparison experiment indicates that TS has better performance than SA especially in the computing time for bus stop selection. We believe that this method can be used as a planning tool to help traffic planners to improve public transit efficiency.

    Based on the observational wind profile data, temperature sounding data and the hourly PM2.5 concentration data from the boundary layer observation experiment in Dongguan region during December 2013, the influence of atmospheric boundary layer structure on PM2.5 concentration in Dongguan region has been discussed. It was found that the PM2.5 air pollution weather occurred in winter of Dongguan region was mostly influenced by the weather system of weak southward moving cold air. Under the control of continental cold high, the evolution of atmospheric boundary layer structure was very typical. During the PM2.5 air pollution situation, the daily mean height of mixing layer in daytime was lower than 600 m sometimes, the pollutants accumulated persistently and its concentration increased gradually with the low atmospheric boundary layer height. The height of stable boundary layer in nighttime was about 100 m. By reason of the law height of stable boundary layer in nighttime, the peak PM2.5 concentration occurred in nighttime. The vertical wind field of Dongguan region had obvious three layer construction. The lower layer with slow wind speed made the pollutants accumulate inside atmospheric boundary layer and hard to diffuse. The middle layer which appeared in a very low height with slow wind speed gave rise to the pollutants be compression inside lower layer further. Under the control of continental cold high in winter, the inversion layer appeared frequently in Dongguan region during PM2.5 air pollution situation. The height of low altitude inversion base was about 700 m with a large thickness and intensity; the surface inversion occurred in nighttime frequently with a thickness of about 100 m.

    This paper takes 21 regions in Guangdong province as research object,and uses the index of per capita GDP to analyse spatialtemporal evolution of the economic development during 2000-2012 and 2018 in Guangdong Province by means of grey prediction,spatial autocorrelation and spatial regression. The characteristic of global spatial autocorrelation of the economic development level of different regions in Guangdong is obvious and the region difference of economic development in Guangdong is relatively small. The spatial pattern of region economic development in Guangdong is stable and the spatial difference is relatively small. The local spatial autocorrelation of the economic development level of different regions in Guangdong is not obvious and different gather centers have been formed. The spatial difference of economic development is influenced mainly by economic structure,urbanization economic development level and human resources.
