Neural networks currently play a major role in the modeling, control and optimization of polymerization processes and in polymer resin development. This paper is a brief tutorial on simple and practical procedures that can help in selecting and training neural networks and addresses complex cases where the application of neural networks has been successful(More)
This paper introduces a methodology for adding color to grayscale images in a way that is completely automatic. Towards this goal, we build on a technique that was recently developed to transfer colors from a user-selected source image to a target grayscale image. More specifically, we eliminate the need for human intervention in the selection of the source(More)
We modeled the problem of identifying how close two proteins are structurally by measuring the dissimilarity of their contact maps. These contact maps are colored images, in which the chromatic information encodes the chemical nature of the contacts. We studied two conceptually distinct image-processing algorithms to measure the dissimilarity between these(More)

In this work we model the problem of identifying how close structurally two proteins are as a problem of measuring the similarity between color images that represent their contact maps, where the chromatic information encodes the chemical nature of the contacts. We study two conceptually distinct methods to measure the similarity between such contact maps:(More)
