Abstract +
This paper deals with a non-Noether conserved quantity constructed directly by u sing the form invariance for the Nielsen equation of a non-conservative mechanic al system. The definition and the criterion of a non-point form invariance of th e equation, of which the Noether conserved quantity is studied, are established by relying on the total time derivative along the trajectory of the equation. T he condition under which the form invariance can lead to a non-Noether conserved quantity and the form of the conserved quantity are deduced, and three corollar ies in special cases are presented. Two examples are finally given to illustrate the application of the results.

2004, 53 (12): 4045-4051. doi: 10.7498/aps.53.4045
Abstract +
F-expansion method proposed recently is extended to construct more exact solutio ns of nonlinear evolution equations. To be more precise, it means that instead o f the first-order ordinary differential equation(ODE) and finite power series of one variable in F-expansion met hod, we introduce similar first-order ODEs and finite power series of two varia b les, each one of which is the component of solution to ODEs. As an illust rat ive example, using this extended F-expansion method we solve nonlinear Schrdin g er(NLS) equation, an abundance of envelope solutions, especially the solutions expressed by two different Jacobi elliptic functions, to the NLS equation have b een obtai ned. Obviously, the extended F-expansion method can be applied to solve other ty pe of nonlinear evolution equations as well.

Yu Xue-Cai, Mo Ying
2004, 53 (12): 4075-4079. doi: 10.7498/aps.53.4075
Abstract +
Expressions for critical temperature of Bose-Einstein condensation (BEC) in an e xternal potential, which are different from published results in the literatur e, are presente d. The results reveal the relation between the critical temperature of BECgas and the external potential, and demonstrates proporti onality of critical temperature in external potential to the value T0c at which th e potential is absent. In addition, a criterion for the validity of potential is also prese nted, which is based on the comparison between the potential and the product  kT 0c. This comparison shows that only when the external potential is nearly eq ual to or larg er than kT0c, the increase of critical temperature is significant. A s the potential is much smaller than kT0c, the potential has no effects on the BEC gas.

Guo Hui-Jun, Liu Jun_Hua
2004, 53 (12): 4080-4086. doi: 10.7498/aps.53.4080
Abstract +
A novel adaptive radial basis function(RBF) neural network sliding mode strat egy is developed to con trol Lorenz chaos with parametric uncertainties and external disturbances. Based on the controllable canonical form of system state error at its unstable equili brium, a sliding surface is defined as the only input to the RBF controller. Onl y seven RBFs are required for the controller and their weights ar e trained on-line based on the sliding surface approaching condition. The simula tio n results show that this method is feasible and effective, and the robustness to parametric uncertainties and external disturbance is provided.

Finally, we find that the value of Kolmogo rov entropy has a great effect on the hitting accuracy of the prediction .

Abstract +
A new type of chaotic generator is studied by constructing a three_segment piec ewise_linear odd function with variable breakpoint α. The characteristic of the chaotic generator presented is that when the breakpoint α varies in th e range of 0<α≤1, there is a route to chaos through period_doubling bifurcations, and the doubl e_ layer single spiral, single_layer single spiral, double_layer double spiral and single_layer double spiral chaotic attractors can be generated. In particular, the double-layer single spiral and double-layer double spiral are found in our circuit experiment for the first time so far as we know. The b ifurca tion diagram, Lyap unov exponents λ_1,λ_2,λ_3, maximal Lyapunov exponent λ_maxand the spectrum of the single_layer double spiral and double-layer double spiral are also investigated. The associated electronic circuit is designed and the experimental result is given, which is ver ified by computer simulation and circuit experiment.
H∞ tracking control for coupled spatio-temporal chaos with uncertain model based on fuzzy observers
Dou Chun-Xia, Zhang Shu-Qing
2004, 53 (12): 4120-4125. doi: 10.7498/aps.53.4120
Abstract +
Due to the interactions among coupled spatio_temporal subsystems and th e model uncertainties, it is difficult to achieve tracking control for coupled s patio_temporal chaos with uncertain model. However, every subsystem of the coupl e d spatio_temporal chaos is approximated by a set of fuzzy models. Considering th at the st ates of the subsystems are not all available, a set of fuzzy observers are propo sed to estimate these states. Because it is very difficult to exactly eliminate many parameters and dynamic characters of the chaotic system, that is to say, the s yst em model is uncertain, there can be deviation between the fuzzy models and the real chaotic system due to approximation error. Based on these fuzzy models and observers, considering the model uncertainties, a H∞ fuzzy tracking contro l scheme is proposed, and the robust tracking control for the coupled spatio_tem pora l chaos with the uncertain model is achieved by the above scheme. A linear matri x inequali ty is employed to represent the feedback controller, the parameters of the contr oller being obtained by using the convex optimization techniques of linear matri x inequalites. The stability of the system is guaranteed and the tracking performances are tested by a simul ation example.

Moreover, some complicated b ehaviors of the model such as the metastable state and the separation of phases are also observed. Compared with the real traffic, the characters of this model are shown and analyzed.

Chen Yan-Hong, Xue Yu
2004, 53 (12): 4145-4150. doi: 10.7498/aps.53.4145
Abstract +
Considering the effects of different factors on the stochastic delay probability , we have classified the delay probability into three cases. The first case, cor responding to the deceleration state, has a large delay probability if anticipan t veloc ity is larger than the gap between the successive cars. The second one, correspo nding to the leader following stably, has an intermediate delay probability if t he anticipant velocity is equal to the gap. The last is the one with acceleratio n with the minimum delay probability. The fundamental diagram obtained by the nu merical simulation shows the different properties compared with that by the NaSc h model, in which there exist two different jamming regions corresponding to the coexistent congestion and jamming with different properties of shock wave.

Wang Li-Jun, Yu Hui-Ying
2004, 53 (12): 4151-4156. doi: 10.7498/aps.53.4151
Abstract +
In this paper the semi-classic theory of coherent excitation of a two-level atom was modified and applied to a two-level atom with a hyperfine structure. The im portant result of calculation is as follows: when the exciting laser power is la rge enough, due to the power broadening effect, a narrow-band laser can excite a two-level atom with a hyperfine structure effectively. So it is not necessary t o use a broad-band laser to guarantee excitation efficiency for an atom with hyp erfine split levels.

Yin Jian-Ping, Gao Wei-Jian
2004, 53 (12): 4157-4162. doi: 10.7498/aps.53.4157
Abstract +
In this paper, we propose a new scheme to cool and trap neutral ato ms by using a blue-detuned localized hollow beam (LHB), and studied the dynamica l process of intensity-gradient cooling of the trapped atoms in the LHB by means of Monte-Carlo simulations. Our study shows that an ultracold atomic sample wit h a temperature of ~5 μK and an atomic density of 1012—1013/cm 3 can be obtained in our single LHB, and this atomic density can be con trolled by changing the relative aperture of the lens system. So, such a LHB can be used to realize an all-optical atomic Bose-Einstein condensation.
Controllable doublewell optical trapfor cold atoms or molecules
Yin Jian-Ping, Ji Xian-Ming
2004, 53 (12): 4163-4172. doi: 10.7498/aps.53.4163
Abstract +
In this paper, we propose a novel scheme to form a controllable doublewell opt i cal trap for cold atoms or molecules by using a system composed of a binary π phase plate and a lens illuminated by a plane light wave. We calculate the int ensi ty distribution of the doublewell trap, and study the evolution process of th e optical trap from two wells to a single well, and derive the analytical relation between the characteristic parameters of the doublewell trap (includi ng g eometric parameters, the intensity distributions, intensity gradients and their curvatures) and the parameters of optical system. We find that our doublewell trap can be continuously changed into a singlewell trap by moving the πphas e pl ate along the x direction, and the relation between the distance of the trap ping centers of the two wells and the moving distance of the πphase plate is obt ain ed by data fitting. In addition, our doublewell scheme is not only simple and c onvenient, but also has some important and wide applications in the fields of at omic physics, atom optics, molecule optics and quantum optics and so on.
A new ADI-FDTD analysis in electromagnetic scattering
Wu Zhen-Sen, Yan Yu-Bo, Li Qing-Liang
2004, 53 (12): 4173-4180. doi: 10.7498/aps.53.4173
Abstract +
This paper proposes a new set of alternative direction implicit finite_di fference time_domain (ADI_FDTD) equations. In conventional ADI_FDTD, the update equation is related to several field components in cells nearby, which will lead to some difficulties in two regions:1) around the boundary region between the p erfectly ma tched layer (PML) and the scattering field; 2) around the adjacent bounda ry. Especially, in the region around the adjacent boundary, owing to the inciden t wave, we shou ld make a judgment about the situation of every component and modify the update equation. It is potential to make a solution to one_dimensional or two_dimension al problem. However, in three_dimensional (3D) analysis, one equation concerns w ith el even components and there exist several tens of cases to be modified. This makes the scheme very tedious and impossible to realize. This paper adopts the spli t field difference formation in the whole computation regime to analyse the sca ttering problem. Because the equations in the scattering field region have the same expr essi ons as those in PML absorber except for some coefficients, the boundary in the r egion mentioned above can be ignored. Due to simplicity of the split field equation, the new ADI_FDTD formula in 3D problem has only five compon ents to be cons idered and four modifications at the adjacent boundary to be made. Finally, we utilize this new method to compute some electromagnetic scattering numerical examples, and the results are in excellent agreement with those ob tained w ith other algorithm and the measured data. Moreover, the new method have 6-7 tim es higher efficiency in terms of the CPU time.

Abstract +
On the basis of the vector diffraction theory, the equation o f two_dimensional grating in arbitrary angle of incidence is given, the complet e analytical form of angular dispersion formula of two_dimensional grating is f irst ly deduced, and the concept of angular dispersion of diffractive polar angle (AD DPA)(the first kind angular dispersion) and angular dispersion of diffractive az imuthal angle (ADDAA) (the second kind angular dispersion) are established. In addition, according to theoretical analysis and numerical method on ADDPA and AD DAA of two_dimensional grating, the mechanism that diffraction spot array gener at es distortion is explained when the incidence wave has an angular deviation from the grating normal. Moreover, the conditions for causing mutation of ADDAA and l eading to the dramatic change of diffraction spot array are also determined. Thi s work, therefore, is of great importance in basic theory research. In practical ap plication, taking x_ray diffraction, low_energy electron diffraction and reflect ion high_energy electron diffraction of crystal and quantum d ot for example, we may take advantage of the above formula to test, analyz e and explain the structure of a crystal lattice and the crystal growth process, then we can find new methods of characterizing crystal structure.

2004, 53 (12): 4211-4217. doi: 10.7498/aps.53.4211
Abstract +
Theoretical analysis and a full numerical simulation of the electromagnet ically induced transparency model are performed under detuning conditions for a closed three_level ultracold atomic system in which a signal field can be stored and retrieved. Numerical results confirm the theory that the system can be prep ared in dark states only under resonant conditions between the fields and the a tomic transitions. The signal field is partially stored in the ultracold atomic medium with the increase of detuning and an enhanced negative group velocity of t he physically vanishing signal pulse appears. In the case of a symmetrical detun ing (red or blue detuning), no remarkable changes of the storage process occur.

At the same time, it is also found that taking the influence of the 3rd harmonic gener ated by the idler light into account is necessary for reducing the discrepancy b etween the theoretical and experimental results.

The amplification and threshold of quasi_state modes are analyze d in random media with gain. Results show that the quasi_state mode with a stron ger spatial localization has lower threshold and can be amplified preferentially .

Abstract +
We have experimentally studied the Brillouin-Rayleigh scat tering in dispersion compensation fibers under Raman pump of different po we rs, and analyzed the characteristics of output spectra and the variation of th e spectra with pump power in detail. Then, based on the known theoretical model of the first-order stimulated Brillouin scattering, we deduce the theoretica l model for multi-order Brillouin-Rayleigh scattering. By this model, we have ma de numerical simulation, and the results show that theory and experiment are consiste nt at lower pump power, but have great differences at higher pump power.Moreove r, we analyze carefully the differences between theory and experiment. Finally,from theoretical calculation and experimental results, we obtain the saturation charac teristics of Brillouin-Rayleigh scattering at higher pump power, so that we can easily explain the cause of flat multi-order Brillouin-Rayleigh scattering at a certain higher Raman pump power.

Abstract +
An experimental study of supercontinuum generation in a photonic crystal fiber with zero dispersion wavelength 780?nm by femtosecond laser and its dependence factor is presented. Supercontinuum light with a spectrum more than one octave broad (500-1100?nm) was generated in a photonic crystalfiber by femtosecond pulses from a selfstarting, selfmode locked Ti:sapphire oscillator running at center wavelength of 810-840?nm. Different supercontinuums were generated by the 35?fs pulses with different power, central wavelength, prechirp, and the continuous noise in the femtosecond pulses. Some reasonable analysis result is obtained from the comparisons of the experimental results, and the mechanism of the supercontinuum generation is analyzed.

2004, 53 (12): 4248-4252. doi: 10.7498/aps.53.4248
Abstract +
A random distributed microstructure fiber in which strong asymmetry was introduced around a puresilica core was reported. Femtosecond laser pulses with duration of 35?fs from a Ti:sapphire laser oscillator were coupled into this fiber, and then periodic color rings were observed from the side of the fiber when the supercontinuum light propagated along the fiber. We attributed this phenomenon to the polarization beating of the supercontinuum light in this highly birefringent microstructure fiber. Measurement showed that the fiber had a beat length of approximately 1?mm at a central wavelength of 600?nm, which is in good agreement with the result of calculation. A new method is proposed to measure the beat length directly in a highly birefringent microstructure fiber.

Abstract +
A novel fiber Bragg grating thermal tuning scheme is proposed, theoretically analyzed and experimentally studied. The device made from this scheme is named doubleshoulder beam (DSB). Experimental results demonstrate that DSB is an effective thermal tuning technique. A thermal sensitivity of 0436?nm/℃, 50 times that of the bare fiber grating, is experimentally achieved. To our knowledge, this is the largest thermal sensitivity ever demonstrated. The repeatability and lin earity of the technique is very well. The most important advantage of DSB, as a breakthrough to conventional thermal tuning technique, is its great flexibility. It makes the thermaltuning efficiency of fiber grating no longer limited by the thermalexpansion coefficient of the drive materials, but can be designed according to practical requirements. This technique is expected to have a vast application in fields such as laser tuning, high sensitivity temperature sensing, sensor demultiplexing and so forth.

Abstract +
Fiber Bragg grating (FBG) was successfully fabricated in a Yb3+ doped double clad fiber with D-shaped inner-cladding by using phase mask method. Based on the FBG, a stable narrow line width double clad fiber laser was successfully demonstrated which resolved the output instability caused by mode-competition in common double-clad fiber lasers. The maximum output power is 570?mW at the wavelength 1058.2nm with 0.196nm line-band. Based on rate equations, the relationship between output power and pump power, the reflectivity of the FBG and the optimized length of the fiber were analyzed, which were in good agreement with the experimental results.

Abstract +
The study on the holographic reconstruction and prediction of a semifree field is valuable for the practical applications of the acoustic holography technique. On the basis of the proposed holographic reconstruction and prediction method of semifree field in the inverse distributed source boundary point method,an experiment is carried out in a semifree field. The reconstructed and predicted results in the proposed method are compared with those in the conventional method. The influence of the reflected sound in the reconstruction procedure is analyzed, and the effectiveness and correctness of the proposed method are validated. In addition, considering the sensitivity of the system equations to the measurement errors of pressures on the hologram surface in the experiment, the truncated singular value decomposition method and the Tikhonov regularization method are adopted to stabilize the problem. By choosing the appropriate regularization parameters and filter factors, the influence of errors can be decreased to the least, and the reconstructed and predicted quantities of acoustic field and the reliability of the holographic images are improved.

2004, 53 (12): 4277-4281. doi: 10.7498/aps.53.4277
Abstract +
In this paper, we use the molecular dynamics simulation to study the phenomena that the granular flow changes from dilute flow to dense flow by increasing the channel width at a fixed orifice of 9.5d (d is the diameter of grains). In the area over the orifice, the density of flow increases and the granular temperatur edecreases with the increase of channel width. The change from dilute flow to dense flow begins at a channel width of 24d, a lower granular temperature( T/m=0.05 J/kg) and a larger coordination number of 1.2 The mechanism is a structural change in the granular flow, since a wider channel results in more horizontal chains of particles and a lower temperature makes these chains more stable.

We prepared aSi:H/SiO2 multilayer by using layer by layer deposition of aSi:H sublayer and insitu plasma oxidation in the plasmaenhanced chemical vapor deposition system. Based on the constrained crystallization principle of aSi:H sublayer, we employed krF excimer laser to irradiate aSi:H sublayer and crystallize it. The results of Raman scattering spectroscopy and electron diffraction show that nanocrystal silicon (ncSi) has been formed within the asdeposited aSi:H/SiO2 multilayer, and that the size of ncSi can be controlled precisely according to the thickness of aSi:H sublayer. We also studied the photoluminescence(PL) property of the sample and the effect of laser energy density on PL.

Abstract +
Due to the damping action during the magnetic moment precession, the magnetic flux generated by a pulsed magnetic field commonly will lag behind the field,so the phase of the pulsed magnetic field lags behind after it penetrates a coated metal. For the nonferromagnetic metal, the phaselag is very faint, and owing to the influence of conductor skin effect and eddy current, it can hardly be detected. An experimental method and the result obtained have been presented in this paper.In this method by using an ultrathin coating with zonal stripe to isolate and select an appropriate position to measure, thus the influences of conductor skin effect and eddy current have been reduced to a minimum. An analysis has been presented in this paper.

Abstract +
In this paper, taking commercial Teflon FEP films of Du Pont Co. as an example, the influence of sample thickness on deposited charge density, the internal electrical field of film electrets charged at room and elevated temperatures, and on their bulk conductivity and c harge storage stability is discussed by means of heat pulse technique, measurement of isothermal surface potential decay and analysis of open circuit thermally stimulated discharge current spectra. The influence of the thickness on the shift of mean charge depth of the deposited charge layer under different temperature conditions is also investigated by the measurements of heat pulse technique in combination with conductivity glow curve. The results indicate that under the same charging conditions and with the decrease of the sample thickness, charge density increases, but at the same time charge storage stability is decreased gradually. Therefore, the charge storage capability and charge stability can be optimized by reasonably regulating the thickness of the sample.

Abstract +
The influence of microstructure on magnetic properties of Sm(Co,Cu,Fe,Zr)z magnets is investigated by micromagnetic finite_element method. The demagnetization curves at different temperatures are also simulated. The calculated results show that the saturation polarization Js depends on the relative proportions of 2∶17 phase and 1∶5 phase. The coercivity and the maximum energy product increase with increasing 2∶17type cell size, while they decrease wi th increasing width of 1∶5type cell boundary. The coercivity analysis shows t hat the magnetization reversa l in Sm(Co,Cu,Fe,Zr)z magnets is mainly controlled by nucleation at cell bounda ry. The abnormal temperature dependence of coercivity is due to the fact that the cell boundary becomes less magnetic even nonmagnetic and the nucleation is difficult with increasing temperature.

The microstructure with which a hard magnetic phase precipitates from the soft magne ticmatrix, is observed in nanocomposite Pr2Fe14B-αFe. The magnetic hysteresis loo ps are simulated by micromagnetic finite element method. The dependence of reman ence, coercivity and maximum energy product on the width of soft phase are discu ssed in detail. Although a single hard magnetic phase behavior is observed, the coercivity decreases monotonically with the increase of soft phase width from 0 to 12 nm. The obtained maximum energy products are 184 and 674 kJ/m3 for isotropic and anisotropic magnets, respectively.

Abstract +
The initial curves, demagnetization curves and recoil curves of Pr2Fe14B and Pr2Fe14B-α Fe nanocrystalline permanent magnets have been calculated by micromagnetic finite_element method. The validity of δm(H)curves, which can be used to determine the strength of intergrain exchange coupling interaction (IGEC), is approved by the calculated results. It is found that IGEC weakens with increasing grain size D for single-phase nanocrystalline and nanocomposite permanent magnets. Thus, the demagnetization curve shows a two-phase behavior and the δm(H) curve shows two peaks for the nanocomposite sample with D=20nm.The peak at small field can be attributed to the exchange interaction between the magnetic hard and soft grains, while the peak at large field may be due to the IGEC among hard grains.

And the depth of these domain strips is, typically, about 30 to 50μm. When a pol ed field with a pulse width of 100ms is applied, the domain- inverted structure with a width of 0.5μm was obtained. Using the spontaneous domains backswitc hing and domain side- grown effects, we can explain the mechanism of the submicro n domains evolution.

We compared the lifetime values of the upconversion state for Er3+doped tellurite glass with and without halide ions as determined by direct excitation mechanism, with the results measured by upconversion excitation method. The results indicate that upconversion excitation lengthens the lifetime value largely compared with the direct excitation. The intensity of the upconversion fluorescen ce of the two kinds of glasses was discussed, which showed that it becomes stron ger with the addition of the halide ions than that without the halide ions. The upconversion mechanisms and power-dependent intensities were also determined and explained.

This paper reports the excited-state upconversion of Pr(0.5):ZBLAN glass under two-color excitation. It is found that the fluorescence of upconversion-emiss ion spectrum is the same as that of common-emission spectrum. It is found also that there are three obvious peaks on upconversionexcitation spectrum under twocolor excitation, which corresponds to the 788.5nm 1G4→3P2,850.5nm 1G4→1I6,and 805.0nm 3H6→1D2 excited state absorpt ion transitions res pectively. The large 850.5nm peak of upconversion-excitation spectrum results from the large 1G4(Pr3+ )→1I6(Pr3+) (Pr3+) oscil lator strength f=23.04×10-6.

It results in the upcon version luminescence of Pr(0.5):ZBLAN under two-color excitation.

Abstract +
Based on the layer-optimized method, the devices of sandwiched structure are pr oduced by compounding MEH-PPV and SiO2 In three different voltage regions of alternating current, the devices luminesce differently. When the voltage is low, red emission is obtained; and if the voltage is high, blue emission is acquired. The superposition of the above two emissions is obtained when the voltage is moderate. The red or blue emission belongs to the solidstate cathodoluminesc ence, it originates from the accelerated electrons in SiO2, which bombard the organic layers. By the study on the optic characteristics of the devices, the sc opes and regulations of spectra shift are analyzed.

2004, 53 (12): 4392-4397. doi: 10.7498/aps.53.4392
Abstract +
Arrays of multi-walled carbon nanotube (MWCNT) were bombarded with argon ions a nd studied with transmission electron microscopy and x-ray photoelectron spectr oscopy. Our preliminary results show that after 35min ion bombardment, most of the MWCNT curls and the iron catalyst particles residing at the top end of the tube were knocked out. Although no obvious change in its emission images is obse rved, its field emission current considerably decreases. During spontaneous cool ing down from an elevated temperature (480℃), its emission current decreases sh arply. Interesting finding is that the coating of phosphor powder on the tin-oxide-coated glass anode significantly affects the emission current measurement . For example, the phosphor coating reduces the measured current by over 30?tim es and increases the turnon field from 1.0 to 2.0V/μm.

Abstract +
Using the atomic force microscopy, we have studied the effect of sputtering particle energy on the growth and microstructures of Mo thin films prepared on borosilicate glass (BK7) substrates with ion beam sputtering technique. With specially designed fixture, all samples were prepared in the same run, which diminished the effect of multi-runs on the growth of thin films. Furthermore,the morphology of Mo thin films was studied quantitatively based on numerical analy sis. The morphology of Mo thin films is typically fractal, and the surface para meters of thin films such as fractal dimensions, lateral correlation length and interface width are all obtained. Compared with the thin films prepared under the screen grid voltages of 300 and 700V, the interface width and lateral correlation length of the thin films prepared under the screen grid voltage of 500 V show two times large difference. All the fractal dimensions of thin films are n ear 2 and the growth process of Mo thin films can be described using Mullins diffus ion model. Besides, by using the technique of Auger electron spectroscopy, the atomic concentrations can be obtained in the depth profile.

Abstract +
Pb0.72La0.28TiO.3(PLT28) thin films have been prepared on Pt/Ti/SiO2/Si substrates by pulsed laser deposition under various oxygen pressu re. Experimental study indicated that the oxygen pressure exerts a strong impact on the microstructure and the dielectric properties of the thin films. The film deposited under an oxygen pressure of 2Pa had a larger dielectric constant an d kept a low dielectric loss. At 10kHz frequency, the dielectric constant was approximately 852 and the dielectric loss was 0.0110 Meanwhile, we found that other La- modified PbTiO3 films have the same relation between dielectric con stant and pressure as the above. Possible explanation is given for this.

On the basis of our previous elastic model which is related to the salt ion conc entration, we put forth a new model of B-DNA to Z-DNA transition by considerin g interactions of the hydrogen-bond and base-stacking in Z-DNA, and discuss the effects of salt concentration on the structure transition of B-Z and obtain the force extension curves, the probability distribution curve of the folding angle and the critical torque of B-Z transition at various salt concentrations. The results show that Z-DNA appears when salt concentration reaches 2.4mol/L,and the probability of Z-form begins to increase and the torsion of B-Z trans ition decreases with the increase of salt concentration.

How to extract the magnetocardiography (MCG) signals from the background noises and attenuate the noise is the key element of MCG signal processing. From the aspect of software technique, a new adaptive algorithm is proposed to suppress the environmental magnetic noise of MCG in this paper. The propo sed algorithm is called improved complementary pair normalized least mean square algorithm. This adaptive structure is designed for MCG. This new algorithm prov ides the faster convergence speed and smaller steady-state error. In order to test the performance of this algorithm, the result of the simulated experiment and real MCG signal is analyzed. This method bring about the effective noise atten uation. Meanwhile, this algorithm is suitable for noise cancellation of other non-stationary signals.

Abstract +
When a seismic signal propagates through a realistic medium in the Earth, in add ition to anisotropy, the layers may show intrinsic viscoelastic behavior. Thus, an accurate description of wave propagation requires a rheology that accounts for the anisotropic and viscoelastic behavior of rocks. On this basis, the pseudo spectral recursive formulae of viscoelastic and azimuthally anisotropic media are derived. Wavefield forward modeling with the pseudo-spectral method was car ried out in viscoelastic and azimuthally anisotropic media. The numerical results from the pseudo-spectral method clearly show that seismic wavefield is closely related with the viscoelasticity and the azimuth of the principal axes of anis otropy.

Abstract +
In this paper, in the two-parameter five-dimensional(5D) rotating black hole, we discuss the thermodynamic parameters corresponding to the black hole's horizon and the thermodynamic parameters corresponding to the cosmological horizon. It is obtained that the entropy of cosmological horizon can be written in the form of Cardy-Verlinde formula. However, if we want to write the entropy of the bla ck hole's horizon in the form of Cardy-Verlinde formula, we have to use the met hods offered by Abbott and Deser to calculate the mass of the 5D black hole with double- spinning parameter. Through the research, we can give the relation among the thermodynamic parameters of the 5D black hole, that is, the differential ex pression of the first law of thermodynamics.
