This article investigates the effects of emotional intervention on artificial immune networks used for navigation of autonomous agents (simulated autonomous mobile robots). It is known from psychone-uroimmunology that stress influences the immune system response. From the various models of emotions related to stress available in literature, the(More)
The paper presents a series of experiments in a simulated environment where two autonomous mobile robots gather randomly distributed objects and cluster them into one pile. The coordination of the robots' movements is achieved through stigmergy (an indirect form of communication through the environment). In order to avoid the drawback of the random moves,(More)
The paper proposes a path-planning approach that generates a global optimal path according to a criterion, which has to guarantee " minimum path length and no collisions with obstacles ". The optimization procedures reported in the literature use gradient descent techniques and suffer the local minima problem. The main contribution of the paper consists in(More)
Diffuse Large B-cell Lymphoma (DLBCL) is curable in about 40% of patients. The treatment (chemotherapy or stem cell support) of DLBCL depends on the distinction of the significant subtypes of this kind of cancer and influences on the cured/fatal outcome of the disease. Molecular analyses of clinical heterogeneity in DLBCL focus on individual genes, some of(More)
