Learning to find interesting connections in Wikipedia
"... Abstract—To help users answer the question, what is the relation between (real world) entities or concepts, we might need to go well beyond the borders of traditional information retrieval systems. In this paper, we explore the possibility of exploiting the Wikipedia link graph as a knowledge base f ..."

for finding interesting connections between two or more given concepts, described by Wikipedia articles. We use a modified Spreading Activation algorithm to identify connections between input concepts. The main challenge in our approach lies in assessing the strength of a relation defined by a link between
Algebraic Graph Theory
, 2011
"... Algebraic graph theory comprises both the study of algebraic objects arising in connection with graphs, for example, automorphism groups of graphs along with the use of algebraic tools to establish interesting properties of combinatorial objects. One of the oldest themes in the area is the investiga ..."

Modeling and simulation of genetic regulatory systems: A literature review
 JOURNAL OF COMPUTATIONAL BIOLOGY
, 2002
"... In order to understand the functioning of organisms on the molecular level, we need to know which genes are expressed, when and where in the organism, and to which extent. The regulation of gene expression is achieved through genetic regulatory systems structured by networks of interactions between ..."

DNA, RNA, proteins, and small molecules. As most genetic regulatory networks of interest involve many components connected through interlocking positive and negative feedback loops, an intuitive understanding of their dynamics is hard to obtain. As a consequence, formal methods and computer tools
Directional Statistics and Shape Analysis
, 1995
"... There have been various developments in shape analysis in the last decade. We describe here some relationships of shape analysis with directional statistics. For shape, rotations are to be integrated out or to be optimized over whilst they are the basis for directional statistics. However, various c ..."

concepts are connected. In particular, certain distributions of directional statistics have emerged in shape analysis, such a distribution is Complex Bingham Distribution. This paper first gives some background to shape analysis and then it goes on to directional distributions and their applications
The SWISSMODEL Workspace: A webbased environment for protein structure homology modelling
 BIOINFORMATICS
, 2005
"... Motivation: Homology models of proteins are of great interest for planning and analyzing biological experiments when no experimental threedimensional structures are available. Building homology models requires specialized programs and uptodate sequence and structural databases. Integrating all re ..."

Exact Matrix Completion via Convex Optimization
, 2008
"... We consider a problem of considerable practical interest: the recovery of a data matrix from a sampling of its entries. Suppose that we observe m entries selected uniformly at random from a matrix M. Can we complete the matrix and recover the entries that we have not seen? We show that one can perfe ..."

ReTiling Polygonal Surfaces
 Computer Graphics

"... This paper presents an automatic method of creating surface models at several levels of detail from an original polygonal description of a given object. Representing models at various levels of detail is important for achieving high frame rates in interactive graphics applications and also for speed ..."

This paper shows how a new set of vertices can be distributed over the surface of a model and connected to one another to create a retiling of a
Evolving 3D morphology and behavior by competition
 Proceedings of Artificial Life IV
, 1994
"... This paper describes a system for the evolution and coevolution of virtual creatures that compete in physically simulated threedimensional worlds. Pairs of individuals enter oneonone contests in which they contend to gain control of a common resource. The winners receive higher relative fitness ..."

The genotypes are structured as directed graphs of nodes and connections, and they can efficiently but flexibly describe instructions for the development of creatures ’ bodies and control systems with repeating or recursive
Energy Aware Routing for Low Energy Ad Hoc Sensor Networks
