A discrete view on fold space

M. J. Sippl, S. J. Suhrer, M. Gruber, M. Wiederstein
2008 Bioinformatics  
Here we introduce the new concept of a Fold Space Navigator, a user interface enabling the efficient navigation through fold space and the instantaneous visualization of pairwise structure similarities  ...  Availability: The Fold Space Navigator is accessible as a public web service at http://services.  ...  SCOP and CATH are built on the concept of discrete families and similarly the hierarchical tree of qCOPS emphasizes the discrete view.  ...

Discrete–continuous duality of protein structure space

Ruslan I Sadreyev, Bong-Hyun Kim, Nick V Grishin
2009 Current Opinion in Structural Biology  
The traditional discrete view of protein universe as a set of separate folds has been criticized in the light of growing evidence that almost any arrangement of secondary structures is possible and the  ...  whole protein space can be traversed through a path of similar structures.  ...  Protein folds as discrete entities An essential point lacking in most discussions about the discreteness of the structure space is the actual space definition.  ...

each generally corresponding to a fold.  ...  A global view of the protein universe may shed light on these fundamental questions. It could also suggest new strategies for protein search and design (1-3).  ...  One could argue that all of fold space is discrete; only each SCOP class requires different thresholds to disintegrate. Our data show that this is not the case.  ...

Discrete gauge groups in certain F-theory models in six dimensions

Yusuke Kimura
2019 Journal of High Energy Physics  
We argue that the constructions of the aforementioned models are applicable to Calabi-Yau genus-one fibrations over any base space, except models with a discrete Z 5 gauge group.  ...  We demonstrate that a special family of "Fano 3-folds" is a useful tool for constructing the aforementioned models.  ...  As explained in section 3.1, 6D Ftheory models on genus-one fibered Calabi-Yau 3-folds are obtained over any base space for a discrete Z 4 gauge group.  ...

Protein structure comparison: implications for the nature of 'fold space', and structure and function prediction

Rachel Kolodny, Donald Petrey, Barry Honig
2006 Current Opinion in Structural Biology  
Recently, an alternative view has emerged in which protein fold space is seen as continuous and multidimensional.  ...  A number of schemes for the classification of protein structure have found widespread use and these implicitly assume the organization of protein structure space into discrete categories.  ...  Acknowledgements We are grateful to Michael Levitt, Chris Tang, Mickey Kosloff and Burkhard Rost for many helpful discussions on the topics covered in this review.  ...

Touring protein fold space with Dali/FSSP

L Holm
1998 Nucleic Acids Research  
From the resulting enumeration of structural neighbours (which form a surprisingly continuous distribution in fold space) we derive a discrete fold classification in three steps: (i) sequence-related families  ...  of domains in fold space.  ...  In this example, clicking in the lower right corner of the 2D map (top left) leads to a table view (middle) of folds occupying this region of fold space.  ...

Flexible Developable Surfaces

Justin Solomon, Etienne Vouga, Max Wardetzky, Eitan Grinspun
2012 Computer graphics forum (Print)  
With methods for navigation of this highly nonlinear constraint space in place, we show how to formulate a discrete mean curvature bending energy measuring how far a given discrete developable surface  ...  We introduce a discrete paradigm for developable surface modeling.  ...  While such a discrete structure is piecewise flat, we do not view our surface as a collection of planar segments bordered by sharp folds.  ...

Learning Arbitrary-Goal Fabric Folding with One Hour of Real Robot Experience [article]

Robert Lee, Daniel Ward, Akansel Cosgun, Vibhavari Dasagi, Peter Corke, Jurgen Leitner
2020 arXiv   pre-print
We demonstrate our method on a set of towel-folding tasks, and show that our approach is able to discover sequential folding strategies, purely from trial-and-error.  ...  Videos available at: https://sites.google.com/view/learningtofold  ...  We use a discrete action space that consists of pixel grasp locations and predefined sets of fold angles and fold distances.  ...

Time Discreteness & Wave Function Aliasing

Alexander Zaslavsky
2014 International Frontier Science Letters  
In view of the fact the discreteness of particle states at a time is a prerequisite for aliasing, the effect under consideration, in case of its experimental verification, may serve a proof of this discreteness  ...  When the repetition frequency of a particle discrete state proves to be commensurable with its own frequency (energy), the aliasing effect of its wave function may take place.  ...  The discrete space positions of a particle correspond to the discrete instants of time.  ...

Reply to: MRI resolution enhancement: How useful are shifted images obtained by changing the demodulation frequency?

M. Uecker, T. J. Sumpf, J. Frahm
2011 Magnetic Resonance in Medicine  
In a recent article, Tieng et al. studied a super-resolution MRI technique, which relies on the combination of several low-quality images (same field-of-view and resolution) that are shifted against each  ...  other by a fraction of a pixel (1).  ...  A well-known and widely used procedure to resolve the image on a finer grid is to expand the k-space with zeros before applying a discrete Fourier transform.  ...

S-folds and 4d N $$ \mathcal{N} $$ = 3 superconformal field theories

Ofer Aharony, Yuji Tachikawa
2016 Journal of High Energy Physics  
In this note, we classify the different variants of these N=3 preserving S-folds, distinguished by an analog of discrete torsion, using both a direct analysis of the different torsion classes and the compactification  ...  of the S-folds to three dimensional M-theory backgrounds.  ...  Again let us limit ourselves to the points on the moduli space corresponding to a Coulomb branch from the point of view of an N = 2 description of our SCFTs.  ...

Geometric U-folds in four dimensions

C I Lazaroiu, C S Shahbazi
2017 Journal of Physics A: Mathematical and Theoretical  
We also discuss the relation between geometric U-folds and a moduli space of flat connections defined on the scalar manifold, which involves certain character varieties not studied in the literature.  ...  We describe a construction of geometric U-folds compatible with a non-trivial extension of the global formulation of four-dimensional extended supergravity on a differentiable spin manifold.  ...  Thus every fiber bundle on M 0 is topologically trivial and the standard theory does not admit non-trivial geometric U-folds. Let Γ be a discrete subgroup of E 7 (7) .  ...
