SUMMARY We describe the application of distance geometry methods to the three-dimensional visualization of sequence relationships, with examples for mumps virus SH gene cDNA and prion protein sequences. Sequence-sequence distance measures may be obtained from either a multiple sequence alignment or from sets of pairwise alignments. AVAILABILITY C/Perl(More)
Two parts of an entangled quantum state can have a correlation, in their joint behavior under measurements, that is unexplainable by shared classical information. Such correlations are called nonlocal and have proven to be an interesting resource for information processing. Since nonlocal correlations are more useful if they are stronger, it is natural to(More)
One of the most fascinating consequences of quantum theory is non-locality, i.e., the fact that the behavior under measurements of (spatially separated) parts of a system can have a correlation unexplainable by shared classical information. Note that at the same time, these correlations are non-signaling and do not allow for message transmission. Popescu(More)
We investigate the role of manipulation in a model of opinion formation where agents have opinions about some common question of interest. Agents repeatedly communicate with their neighbors in the social network, can exert some effort to manipulate the trust of others, and update their opinions taking weighted averages of neighbors' opinions. The incentives(More)
We study a stochastic model of influence where agents have " yes " or " no " inclinations on some issue, and opinions may change due to mutual influence among the agents. Each agent independently aggregates the opinions of the other agents and possibly herself. We study influence processes modelled by ordered weighted averaging operators, which are(More)
