The Levenshtein distance or Edit distance $$ lev(U,V) $$ between two strings $U$ and $V$ over a finite alphabet $\Sigma$ of size $ \left| \Sigma \right| = \sigma ,$ is the minimal number of ...
Viterbi is an algorithm for finding the maximum likelihood assignment to the hidden variables of an HMM, given the observed variables (we know the transition and emission probabilities of the HMM). ...
Covering a circle randomly with arcs has been well studied in the past (Geometric Probability - Solomon). But the problem when the circle is changed to a line segment doesn't seem to have been ...
I have a MSc in Mathematics and a PhD in Bioinformatics (in two different European countries); during the PhD I was developing computational methods to analyse DNA sequence data, mainly using a ...
In the study of biological neural networks, researchers sometimes compare hypotheses vs. a degree-preserving random null model. One major criticism against this approach is that connections in neural ...
Hello! I have an interesting problem that seemed simple to me, but I'm unable to solve it on my own. Suppose I am drawing k numbers out of n numbers labeled from 1 to n. Considering all ...
I'll explain the problem but what I am looking for is a few suggested methods to approach this problem. You don't need to know what a microarray but if you are interested look here link text The info ...
