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)
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)
We consider the billiard dynamics in a striplike set that is tessellated by countably many translated copies of the same polygon. A random configuration of semidispersing scatterers is placed in each copy. The ensemble of dynamical systems thus defined, one for each global choice of scatterers, is called quenched random Lorentz tube. We prove that under(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)
In an extension of the Standard Model with one extra dimension and N=1 super-symmetry compactified on R 1 /Z 2 × Z ′ 2 , we compute the Higgs boson decay width into two gluons, relevant to Higgs production in hadronic collisions. At one loop, the decay width is significantly suppressed with respect to the SM. For a compactification radius R = (370 ± 70 GeV)(More)
We consider networks in which random walkers are removed because of the failure of specific nodes. We interpret the rate of loss as a measure of the importance of nodes, a notion we denote as failure centrality. We show that the degree of the node is not sufficient to determine this measure and that, in a first approximation, the shortest loops through the(More)
