We present a detailed description of an algorithm tailored to detect external plagiarism in PAN-09 competition. The algorithm is divided into three steps: a first reduction of the size of the problem by a selection of ten suspicious plagiarists using a n-gram distance on properly recoded texts. A search for matches after T9-like recoding. A “joining(More)
The complexity of human interactions with social and natural phenomena is mirrored in the way we describe our experiences through natural language. In order to retain and convey such a high dimensional information, the statistical properties of our linguistic output has to be highly correlated in time. An example are the robust observations, still largely(More)
Hamiltonian systems with a mixed phase space typically exhibit an algebraic decay of correlations and of Poincaré recurrences, with numerical experiments over finite times showing system-dependent power-law exponents. We conjecture the existence of a universal asymptotic decay based on results for a Markov tree model with random scaling factors for the(More)
We perform a statistical study of the distances between successive occurrences of a given dinucleotide in the DNA sequence for a number of organisms of different complexity. Our analysis highlights peculiar features of the CG dinucleotide distribution in mammalian DNA, pointing towards a connection with the role of such dinucleotide in DNA methylation.(More)
An ensemble of particles in thermal equilibrium at temperature T, modeled by Nosè-Hoover dynamics, moves on a triangular lattice of oriented semidisk elastic scatterers. Despite the scatterer asymmetry, a directed transport is clearly ruled out by the second law of thermodynamics. Introduction of a polarized zero mean monochromatic field creates a directed(More)
We perform numerical measurements of the moments of the position of a tracer particle in a two-dimensional periodic billiard model (Lorentz gas) with infinite corridors. This model is known to exhibit a weak form of superdiffusion, in the sense that there is a logarithmic correction to the linear growth in time of the mean-squared displacement. We show(More)
