Ada Lovelace (born 200 years ago) wrote presciently about digital numerical calculations. She expressed its features poetically: "We may say most aptly that [Babbage's] Analytical Engine weaves algebraical patterns just as the Jacquard loom weaves flowers and leaves." Ada explained the generality... read more

We provide an algorithm, running in polynomial time in the number of vertices, computing the unique solution to the Biased Infinity Laplacian Boundary Problem on finite graphs. The algorithm is based on an adjusted (biased) notion of a slope of a function on a path in a graph. The infinity... read more

G protein coupled receptors (GPCRs) are membrane proteins that allosterically transduce the signal of ligand binding in the extracellular (EC) domain to couple to proteins in the intracellular (IC) domain. However the complete pathway of allosteric communication from the EC to the IC domain,... read more
