This paper presents an enhanced genetic algorithm for the protein structure prediction problem. A new fitness function, that uses the concept of radius of gyration, is proposed. Also, a novel operator called partial optimization, together with different strategies for performance improvement, are described. Tests were done with five different amino acid(More)
The production of nuclear fuel used in the research reactor at Instituto de Pesquisas Energéticas e Nucleares (IPEN/CNEN-SP) requires a series of chemical and metallurgical processes. The quality of the end product depends on the control over all the stages of the manufacturing process and over the quality of raw materials employed. In fact, spectrometric(More)
