A generalization of Sullivan inequality on the ratio of the probability of a linear code to that of any of its cosets is proved. Starting from this inequality, a sufficient condition for successful decoding of linear codes by a probabilistic method is derived. A probabilistic decoding algorithm for “low–density parity–check codes” is also analyzed. The(More)
The correlation between the primary and secondary structures of proteins was analysed using a large data set from the Protein Data Bank. Clear preferences of amino acids towards certain secondary structures classify amino acids into four groups: alpha-helix preferrers, strand preferrers, turn and bend preferrers, and His and Cys (the latter two amino acids(More)
Using the data from Protein Data Bank the correlations of primary and secondary structures of proteins were analyzed. The correlation values of the amino acids and the eight secondary structure types were calculated, where the position of the amino acid and the position in sequence with the particular secondary structure differ at most 25. The diagrams(More)
An algorithm is given for the reconstruction of the initial state of a key–stream generator (KSG) consisting of a short linear feedback shift register (length ≤ 30), whose clock is controlled by an algebraically simple internal KSG. The algorithm is based on the fact that the expected number of possible LFSR initial states exponentially decreases with the(More)
The correlations of primary and secondary structures were analyzed using proteins with known structure from Protein Data Bank. The correlation values of amino acid type and the eight secondary structure types at distant position were calculated for distances between -25 and 25. Shapes of the diagrams indicate that amino acids polarity and capability for(More)
The distribution of water molecules around aromatic rings in the protein structures and crystal structures of small molecules shows quite a small number of the strongest OH-π interactions, a larger number of parallel interactions, and the largest number of the weakest CH-O interactions.
Protein structure prediction is turning out to be one of the major challenges in the field of bio-informatics. It is highly important in medicine, especially in drug design and biotechnology. Proteins, being the basic building unit of all organisms, require experimental techniques for prediction of related structures. Among available methods,(More)
