— Polar coding is a code construction method that can be used to construct capacity-achieving codes for binary-input channels with certain symmetries. Polar coding may be considered as a generalization of Reed-Muller (RM) coding. Here, we demonstrate the performance advantages of polar codes over RM codes under belief-propagation decoding.
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE OF THE STUDY A quantitative structure activity relationship (QSAR) model based on artificial neural networks (ANN) was developed to study the activities of 29 derivatives of 3-amino-4-(2-(2-(4-benzylpiperazin-1-yl)-2-oxoethoxy) phenylamino) cyclobutenedione as C-C chemokine receptor type 1(CCR1) inhibitors. METHODS A feed-forward… (More)
Quantitative relationships between molecular structure of forty eight aldehyde compounds with their known Cathepsin K inhibitory effects were discovered by partial least squares (PLS) method. Evaluation of a test set of 10 compounds with the developed PLS model revealed that this model is reliable with a good predictability. Since the QSAR study was… (More)
