Mathematical aspects of superspace

During the last 5 years, via a consistently expanding wave of job within the physics neighborhood, supergravity has end up considered as probably the most promising methods of unifying gravity with different particle interplay as a finite gauge concept to provide an explanation for the spectrum of ordinary debris. at the same time im­ portant mathematical works at the area of supergravity has taken position, beginning with Kostant's concept of graded manifolds and carrying on with with Batchelor's paintings linking this with the superspace formalism.

In conclusion, the RF not only contains the quality of PMU, but also greatly reduces the amount of transmission data. Therefore, the technique can reduce transmission pressure and improve the efficiency and intelligence of PMU in real-time phasor measurement. In this paper, classification for synchronized phasor by random forest is formulated and studied in Section 2. As a natural outcome of the study, a random forest model for discriminating processed data is constructed in Section 3. Some experimental results are given in Section 4.

After decomposing the host image by 2-level Discrete Contourlet Transform, the binary watermark is embedded into the singular values of selected blocks according their importance in the subbands. Experiment demonstrates that the proposed algorithm is robust to a wide range of attacks. selected blocks according their importance in the subbands. Experimental results show that the proposed watermarking algorithm has significant quality and robustness to common attacks. 1 Introduction Digital watermarking is one of the popular solutions of protecting multimedia information, content authentication and Copyright protection.
