A new LDA-based face recognition system is presented in this paper. Linear discriminant analysis (LDA) is one of the most popular linear projection techniques for feature extraction. The major drawback of applying LDA is that it may encounter the small sample size problem. In this paper, we propose a new LDA-based technique which can solve the small sample(More)
Due to the importance of protein phosphorylation in cellular control, many researches are undertaken to predict the kinase-specific phosphorylation sites. Referred to our previous work, KinasePhos 1.0, incorporated profile hidden Markov model (HMM) with flanking residues of the kinase-specific phosphorylation sites. Herein, a new web server, KinasePhos 2.0,(More)
One major task in the post-genome era is to reconstruct proteomic and genomic interacting networks using high-throughput experiment data. To identify essential nodes/hubs in these interactomes is a way to decipher the critical keys inside biochemical pathways or complex networks. These essential nodes/hubs may serve as potential drug-targets for developing(More)
In this paper, we consider the edge searching and node searching problems on trees. Given a tree, we show a transformation from an optimal node-search strategy to an optimal edge-search strategy. Using our transformation, we simplify a previous linear-time algorithm for determining the edge-search number of a tree, and improve the running time of a previous(More)
In this paper, a novel initial videos allocation scheme and a dynamic load balancing strategy are proposed for a distributed video storage server in order to increase the availability and reduce operation cost. The initial allocation scheme determines the allocation of video replicas on the servers to achieve static load balance and to obtain a(More)
BACKGROUND Many research results show that the biological systems are composed of functional modules. Members in the same module usually have common functions. This is useful information to understand how biological systems work. Therefore, detecting functional modules is an important research topic in the post-genome era. One of functional module detecting(More)
of a scene [9]. There are two tasks which need to be handled during an image registration process. They are feature A new edge-based approach for efficient image registration is proposed. The proposed approach applies wavelet transform selection and correspondence establishment. Typically, to extract a number of feature points as the basis for registration.(More)
In this paper, we present a system that extracts and generalizes terms from Internet documents to represent classification knowledge of a given class hierarchy. We propose a measurement to evaluate the importance of a term with respect to a class in the class hierarchy, and denote it as support. With a given threshold, terms with high supports are sifted as(More)
Let G = (V; E) be a ÿnite and undirected graph without loops and multiple edges. An edge is said to dominate itself and any edge adjacent to it. A subset D of E is called a perfect edge dominating set if every edge of E \ D is dominated by exactly one edge in D and an eecient edge dominating set if every edge of E is dominated by exactly one edge in D. The(More)
An asteroidal triple is an independent set of three ver-tices in a graph such that every two of them are joined by a path avoiding the closed neighborhood of the third. Graphs without as-teroidal triples are called AT-free graphs. In this paper, we show that every AT-free graph admits a vertex ordering that we call a 2-cocomparability ordering. The new(More)
