Abstract for$$\hbox {CLE}_{\kappa '}$$ ${\text{CLE}}_{{\kappa}^{\prime}}$ in (4, 8) that is drawn on an independent$$\kappa '$$ ${\kappa}^{\prime}$ LQG surface for$$\gamma $$ $\gamma $ . The results are similar in flavor to the ones from our companion paper dealing with$$\gamma ^2=16/\kappa '$$ ${\gamma}^{2}=16/{\kappa}^{\prime}$ for$$\hbox {CLE}_{\kappa }$$ ${\text{CLE}}_{\kappa}$ in (8/3, 4), where the loops of the CLE are disjoint and simple. In particular, we encode the combined structure of the LQG surface and the$$\kappa $$ $\kappa $ in terms of stable growthfragmentation trees or their variants, which also appear in the asymptotic study of peeling processes on decorated planar maps. This has consequences for questions that do a priori not involve LQG surfaces: In our paper entitled “$$\hbox {CLE}_{\kappa '}$$ ${\text{CLE}}_{{\kappa}^{\prime}}$CLE Percolations ” described the law of interfaces obtained when coloring the loops of a independently into two colors with respective probabilities$$\hbox {CLE}_{\kappa '}$$ ${\text{CLE}}_{{\kappa}^{\prime}}$p and . This description was complete up to one missing parameter$$1p$$ $1p$ . The results of the present paper about CLE on LQG allow us to determine its value in terms of$$\rho $$ $\rho $p and . It shows in particular that$$\kappa '$$ ${\kappa}^{\prime}$ and$$\hbox {CLE}_{\kappa '}$$ ${\text{CLE}}_{{\kappa}^{\prime}}$ are related via a continuum analog of the EdwardsSokal coupling between$$\hbox {CLE}_{16/\kappa '}$$ ${\text{CLE}}_{16/{\kappa}^{\prime}}$ percolation and the$$\hbox {FK}_q$$ ${\text{FK}}_{q}$q state Potts model (which makes sense evenmore » 
Abstract Massive gully land consolidation projects, launched in China’s Loess Plateau, aim to restore 2667
agricultural lands in total by consolidating 2026 highly eroded gullies. This effort represents a social engineering project where the economic development and livelihood of the farming families are closely tied to the ability of these emergent landscapes to provide agricultural services. Whether these ‘time zero’ landscapes have the resilience to provide a sustainable soil condition such as soil organic carbon (SOC) content remains unknown. By studying two watersheds, one of which is a control site, we show that the consolidated gully serves as an enhanced carbon sink, where the magnitude of SOC increase rate (1.0$$\mathrm{km}^2$$ ${\mathrm{km}}^{2}$ ) is about twice that of the SOC decrease rate (− 0.5$$\mathrm{g\,C}/\mathrm{m}^2/\mathrm{year}$$ $g\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}C/{m}^{2}/\mathrm{year}$ ) in the surrounding natural watershed. Over a 50year coevolution of landscape and SOC turnover, we find that the dominant mechanisms that determine the carbon cycling are different between the consolidated gully and natural watersheds. In natural watersheds, the flux of SOC transformation is mainly driven by the flux of SOC transport; but in the consolidated gully, the transport has little impact on the transformation. Furthermore, we find that extending the surface carbon residence time has the potential to efficiently enhance carbon sequestrationmore »$$\mathrm{g\,C}/\mathrm{m}^2/\mathrm{year}$$ $g\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}C/{m}^{2}/\mathrm{year}$ 
Abstract We continue the program of proving circuit lower bounds via circuit satisfiability algorithms. So far, this program has yielded several concrete results, proving that functions in
and other complexity classes do not have small circuits (in the worst case and/or on average) from various circuit classes$\mathsf {Quasi}\text {}\mathsf {NP} = \mathsf {NTIME}[n^{(\log n)^{O(1)}}]$ $\mathrm{Quasi}\mathrm{NP}=\mathrm{NTIME}\left[{n}^{{\left(\mathrm{log}n\right)}^{O\left(1\right)}}\right]$ , by showing that$\mathcal { C}$ $C$ admits nontrivial satisfiability and/or$\mathcal { C}$ $C$# SAT algorithms which beat exhaustive search by a minor amount. In this paper, we present a new strong lower bound consequence of having a nontrivial# SAT algorithm for a circuit class .

The midIR spectroscopic properties of
${\mathrm{E}\mathrm{r}}^{3+}$ doped lowphonon${\mathrm{C}\mathrm{s}\mathrm{C}\mathrm{d}\mathrm{C}\mathrm{l}}_{3}$ and${\mathrm{C}\mathrm{s}\mathrm{P}\mathrm{b}\mathrm{C}\mathrm{l}}_{3}$ crystals grown by the Bridgman technique have been investigated. Using optical excitations at$\sim <\#comment/>800\phantom{\rule{thickmathspace}{0ex}}\mathrm{n}\mathrm{m}$ and$\sim <\#comment/>660\phantom{\rule{thickmathspace}{0ex}}\mathrm{n}\mathrm{m}$ , both crystals exhibited IR emissions at$\sim <\#comment/>1.55$ ,$\sim <\#comment/>2.75$ ,$\sim <\#comment/>3.5$ , and$\sim <\#comment/>4.5\phantom{\rule{thickmathspace}{0ex}}\text{\xb5<\#comment/>}\mathrm{m}$ at room temperature.

The measured emission lifetimes of the${}^{4}{\mathrm{I}}_{9/2}$ state were nearly independent of the temperature, indicating a negligibly small nonradiative decay rate through multiphonon relaxation, as predicted by the energygap law for lowmaximumphonon energy hosts.

Abstract Hemiwicking is the phenomena where a liquid wets a textured surface beyond its intrinsic wetting length due to capillary action and imbibition. In this work, we derive a simple analytical model for hemiwicking in micropillar arrays. The model is based on the combined effects of capillary action dictated by interfacial and intermolecular pressures gradients within the curved liquid meniscus and fluid drag from the pillars at ultralow Reynolds numbers
. Fluid drag is conceptualized via a critical Reynolds number:$${\boldsymbol{(}}{{\bf{10}}}^{{\boldsymbol{}}{\bf{7}}}{\boldsymbol{\lesssim }}{\bf{Re}}{\boldsymbol{\lesssim }}{{\bf{10}}}^{{\boldsymbol{}}{\bf{3}}}{\boldsymbol{)}}$$ $\left({10}^{7}\lesssim \mathrm{Re}\lesssim {10}^{3}\right)$ , where$${\bf{Re}}{\boldsymbol{=}}\frac{{{\bf{v}}}_{{\bf{0}}}{{\bf{x}}}_{{\bf{0}}}}{{\boldsymbol{\nu }}}$$ $\mathrm{Re}=\frac{{v}_{0}{x}_{0}}{\nu}$v _{0}corresponds to the maximum wetting speed on a flat, dry surface andx _{0}is the extension length of the liquid meniscus that drives the bulk fluid toward the adsorbed thinfilm region. The model is validated with wicking experiments on different hemiwicking surfaces in conjunction withv _{0}andx _{0}measurements using Water , viscous FC70$${\boldsymbol{(}}{{\bf{v}}}_{{\bf{0}}}{\boldsymbol{\approx }}{\bf{2}}\,{\bf{m}}{\boldsymbol{/}}{\bf{s}}{\boldsymbol{,}}\,{\bf{25}}\,{\boldsymbol{\mu }}{\bf{m}}{\boldsymbol{\lesssim }}{{\bf{x}}}_{{\bf{0}}}{\boldsymbol{\lesssim }}{\bf{28}}\,{\boldsymbol{\mu }}{\bf{m}}{\boldsymbol{)}}$$ $\left({v}_{0}\approx 2\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}m/s,\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}25\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\mu m\lesssim {x}_{0}\lesssim 28\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\mu m\right)$ and lower viscosity Ethanol$${\boldsymbol{(}}{{\boldsymbol{v}}}_{{\bf{0}}}{\boldsymbol{\approx }}{\bf{0.3}}\,{\bf{m}}{\boldsymbol{/}}{\bf{s}}{\boldsymbol{,}}\,{\bf{18.6}}\,{\boldsymbol{\mu }}{\bf{m}}{\boldsymbol{\lesssim }}{{\boldsymbol{x}}}_{{\bf{0}}}{\boldsymbol{\lesssim }}{\bf{38.6}}\,{\boldsymbol{\mu }}{\bf{m}}{\boldsymbol{)}}$$ $\left({v}_{0}\approx 0.3\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}m/s,\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}18.6\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\mu m\lesssim {x}_{0}\lesssim 38.6\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\mu m\right)$ .$${\boldsymbol{(}}{{\boldsymbol{v}}}_{{\bf{0}}}{\boldsymbol{\approx }}{\bf{1.2}}\,{\bf{m}}{\boldsymbol{/}}{\bf{s}}{\boldsymbol{,}}\,{\bf{11.8}}\,{\boldsymbol{\mu }}{\bf{m}}{\boldsymbol{\lesssim }}{{\bf{x}}}_{{\bf{0}}}{\boldsymbol{\lesssim }}{\bf{33.3}}\,{\boldsymbol{\mu }}{\bf{m}}{\boldsymbol{)}}$$ $\left({v}_{0}\approx 1.2\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}m/s,\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}11.8\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\mu m\lesssim {x}_{0}\lesssim 33.3\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\mu m\right)$
