Intelligent Yield Management System
Fan-Tien Cheng

Product yield directly affects production cost. Thus manufacturers seek to quickly enhance product yield during the development and mass-production processes. In other words, when a yield loss occurs, the root causes should be found rapidly in both the development and mass-production phases.
To solve the difficulties the industries encounter in yield management, a scheme of high-dimensional …

New discovery in heavy-ion collisions: the fastest fluid in the world
Yi Yang

There are many international collaborations combining the knowledge from physicists and engineers to explore our understanding together on the fundamental interactions in Nature including electromagnetic, weak, strong and gravity. The Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider (RHIC) at Brookhaven National Laboratory (BNL) in US is the most important research facility on studying the strong interaction, …

Quantifying the nonclassicality of pure dephasing
Hong-Bin Chen, Yueh-Nan Chen

INTRODUCTION
The boundary between quantum and classical realms has given rise to vast debates due to its fundamental importance [1,2]. A typical way to demonstrate the authentic quantum nature is to investigate the impossibility to resemble certain statistical properties of interest by using a “classical strategy”. One can only be convinced of the authentic quantum nature whenever he has …

Human embryonic stem cell–derived cardiomyocytes restore function in infarcted hearts of non-human primates
Yen-Wen Liu

Here our research team, including Associate Professor Dr. Yen-Wen Liu at National Cheng Kung University (NCKU) Hospital, College of Medicine, NCKU in Tainan, Taiwan and Researchers at University of Washington (UW) Medicine in Seattle, Washington, U.S. present exciting data on cardiac cell therapy. For the first time in a non-human primate (Macaca nemestrina) model, we have successfully …

An improved approximation ratio to the partial-terminal Steiner tree problem
Sun-Yuan Hsieh

Given a complete graph G = (V, E) with a metric cost function c: E -> + and two proper subsets R ⊂ V and R' ⊆ R, a Steiner tree is a connected and acyclic subgraph of G which contains all vertices in R. We consider a generalization of the classic Steiner tree problem and the terminal Steiner tree problem, a partial-terminal Steiner tree is …

Astrocytic CCAAT/Enhancer-Binding Protein Delta Contributes to Glial Scar Formation and Impairs Functional Recovery After Spinal Cord Injury
Ju-Ming Wang

Spinal cord injury (SCI) refers to injury to the spinal cord that causes devastating clinical conditions that can result in permanent disabilities. According to the WHO, worldwide, it is estimated that between 250,000 and 500,000 people suffer a spinal cord injury every year (1). After SCI, disrupted blood vessels in the lesion allow the infiltration of inflammatory cells and the release of …

Spectrum Analysis of Cry Sounds in Preterm and Full-Term Infants
Li-mei Chen

Previous studies indicated that crying behavior of full-term and preterm infants show significant different patterns due to immature neurological development of preterm infants. Long-time average spectrum (LTAS) was used to analyze the cry phonation of 26 infants under four months old. Sixteen of them are full-term and the other 10 infants are preterm. The results of first spectral peak (FSP), …
