It becomes possible to take advantage of seamless biometric authentication on mobile devices due to increasing quality and quantity of built-in sensors, increasing processing power of the devices, and wireless connectivity. However, practical effectiveness of the biometric authentication application depends on user’s environment conditions that can decrease(More)
Proteolytic activity driven by urokinase (uPA) is commonly recognized as an important factor in metastasis and angiogenesis. The eradication of unwanted uPA activity expressed by cancer cells results in the inhibition of metastasis and angiogenesis. Development of novel and highly selective uPA inhibitors could, therefore, produce new treatments of cancer.(More)
MOTIVATION Liquid state nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectroscopy has now been well established as a method for RNA tertiary structure determination. Most of the steps involved in the determination of RNA molecules are performed using computer programs. They however, do not apply to resonance assignment being the starting point of the whole procedure.(More)
Resonance assignment remains one of the hardest stages in RNA tertiary structure elucidation with the use of nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy. We propose an evolutionary algorithm being a tool for an automatic design of the procedure. NOE pathway, which determines the assignments, is constructed during an analysis of possible connections between(More)
OBJECTIVE Cryosurgery is a minimally invasive cancer treatment that uses liquid nitrogen or supercooled argon to freeze and destroy tumors. To achieve complete ablation of the prostate, we have developed a computer program that can determine treatment effects by calculating iceball formation. This is based on a three-dimensional (3D) model of the patient's(More)
In this work, the technical feasibility of passive secure payments for brick-and-mortar points of sale is analyzed. The core element of the proposed approach is a new application for context-based risk and trust assessment. It allows for dynamic selection of payment authorization methods that constitutes accurate trade-off between security and convenience.(More)
We obtain the phase diagrams of a uniaxial ferromagnet enclosed in a slit and analyse the properties of the solvation forces acting between the slit walls. Our analysis is based on the mean-field theory applied to the double-parabola Hamiltonian for a uniaxial ferromagnet in a slit, which allows us to derive several results in analytic form. In particular,(More)
The paper presents a Web-based educational platform that provides a novel easy-to-use and secure environment designed to help teachers employ modern ICT technologies, and specifically Web 2.0 tools, in the education process. The platform enables decentralized creation, management and sharing of learning content. A key element of the platform is access(More)
