In this paper, we introduce a similarity metric for curved shapes that can be described, distinctively, by ordered points. The proposed method represents a given curve as a point in the deformation space, the direct product of rigid transformation matrices, such that the successive action of the matrices on a fixed starting point reconstructs the full curve. In general, both open and closed curves are represented in the deformation space modulo shape orientation and orientation preserving diffeomorphisms. The use of direct product Lie groups to represent curved shapes led to an explicit formula for geodesic curves and the formulation of a similarity metric between shapes by the $L^{2}$-norm on the Lie algebra. Additionally, invariance to reparametrization or estimation of point correspondence between shapes is performed as an intermediate step for computing geodesics. Furthermore, since there is no computation of differential quantities on the curves, our representation is more robust to local perturbations and needs no pre-smoothing. We compare our method with the elastic shape metric defined through the square root velocity (SRV) mapping, and other shape matching approaches [less ▲]

Context: Access control is among the most important security mechanisms, and XACML is the de facto standard for specifying, storing and deploying access control policies. Since it is critical that enforced policies are correct, policy testing must be performed in an effective way to identify potential security flaws and bugs. In practice, exhaustive testing is impossible due to budget constraints. Therefore the tests need to be prioritized so that resources are focused on their most relevant subset. Objective: This paper tackles the issue of access control test prioritization. It proposes a new approach for access control test prioritization that relies on similarity. Method: The approach has been applied to several policies and the results have been compared to random prioritization (as a baseline). To assess the different prioritization criteria, we use mutation analysis and compute the mutation scores reached by each criterion. This helps assessing the rate of fault detection. Results: The empirical results indicate that our proposed approach is effective and its rate of fault detection is higher than that of random prioritization. Conclusion: We conclude that prioritization of access control test cases can be usefully based on similarity criteria. © 2014 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved. [less ▲]

Determining if a point is in a polygon or not is used by a lot of applications in computer graphics, computer games and geoinformatics. Implementing this check is error-prone since there are many special cases to be considered. This holds true in particular for complex polygons whose edges intersect each other creating holes. In this paper we present a simple even-odd algorithm to solve this problem for complex polygons in linear time and prove its correctness for all possible points and polygons. We furthermore provide examples and implementation notes for this algorithm. [less ▲]

It is an open question whether information about hypertension and obesity increases compliance with therapy. Nevertheless, patients increasingly demand precise but simple and comprehensive information. A simple slide programme is described which can be demonstrated in any waiting room. The learning effect was assessed in 1083 subjects, of whom 485 had seen the programme completely; 256 subjects served as controls. The percentage of subjects with good or excellent knowledge about hypertension and obesity rose from 22.8% in the controls to 64.2% in the experimental group. Age was the only factor influencing learning, but this was of no great importance in subjects under 70. In particular, social status did not have any significant effect on learning. This programme may be an ideal tool to inform patients about hypertension and obesity and to study the influence of information on compliance with therapy. [less ▲]

A large number of advanced finite element shell formulations have been developed, but their adoption is hindered by complexities of transforming mathematical formulations into computer code. Furthermore, it is often not straightforward to adapt existing implementations to emerging frontier problems in thin structural mechanics including nonlinear material behaviour, complex microstructures, multi-physical couplings, or active materials. We show that by using a high-level mathematical modelling strategy and automatic code generation tools, a wide range of advanced plate and shell finite element models can be generated easily and efficiently, including: the linear and non-linear geometrically exact Naghdi shell models, the Marguerre-von K ́arm ́an shallow shell model, and the Reissner-Mindlin plate model. To solve shear and membrane-locking issues, we use: a novel re-interpretation of the Mixed Interpolation of Tensorial Component (MITC) procedure as a mixed-hybridisable finite element method, and a high polynomial order Partial Selective Reduced Integration (PSRI) method. The effectiveness of these approaches and the ease of writing solvers is illustrated through a large set of verification tests and demo codes, collected in an open-source library, FEniCS-Shells, that extends the FEniCS Project finite element problem solving environment.

In this article, a computationally efficient multi-split MsXFEM is proposed to evaluate the elastic properties of heterogeneous materials. The multi-split MsXFEM is the combination of multi-split XFEM with multiscale finite element methods (MsFEM). The multi-split XFEM is capable to model multiple discontinuities in a single element which leads to reduction in the number of mesh elements, whereas MsFEM helps in reducing the computational time. Strain energy based homogenization has been implemented on an RVE (having volume fraction of heterogeneities up to 50%) for evaluating the elastic properties. From macro-element size analysis, we estimate that the RVE edge length must be 5 times the edge length of the macro-element. The directional analysis has been performed to verify the isotropic behavior of the material, whereas contrast analysis has been done to check the numerical accuracy of the proposed scheme. A level set correction (LSC) based on higher order shape functions has been proposed to reduce mapping errors of level set values. It is also observed that multi-split MsXFEM is about 16 times computationally more efficient than MsXFEM for 50% volume of heterogeneities. [less ▲]

A new robust and efficient approach for modeling discrete cracks in meshfree methods is described. The method is motivated by the cracking-particle method (Rabczuk T., Belytschko T., International Journal for Numerical Methods in Engineering, 2004) where the crack is modeled by a set of cracked segments. However, in contrast to the above mentioned paper, we do not introduce additional unknowns in the variational formulation to capture the displacement discontinuity. Instead, the crack is modeled by splitting particles located on opposite sides of the associated crack segments and we make use of the visibility method in order to describe the crack kinematics. We apply this method to several two- and three-dimensional problems in statics and dynamics and show through several numerical examples that the method does not show any "mesh" orientation bias. © 2010 Elsevier B.V.

Clinical genetic testing has exponentially expanded in recent years, leading to an overwhelming amount of patient variants with high variability in pathogenicity and heterogeneous phenotypes. A large part of the variant level data are comprehensively aggregated in public databases such as ClinVar. However, the ability to explore this rich resource and answer general questions such as “How many genes inside ClinVar are associated with a specific disease? or “In which part of the protein are patient variants located?” is limited and requires advanced bioinformatics processing. Here, we present Simple ClinVar (http://simple-clinvar.broadinstitute.org/) a web- server application that is able to provide variant, gene, and disease level summary statistics based on the entire ClinVar database in a dynamic and user-friendly web-interface. Overall, our web application is able to interactively answer basic questions regarding genetic variation and its known relationships to disease. By typing a disease term of interest, t he user can identify in seconds the genes and phenotypes most frequently reported to ClinVar. Subsets of variants can then be further explored, filtered, or mapped and visualized in the corresponding protein sequences. Our website will follow ClinVar monthly releases and provide easy access to rich ClinVar resources to a broader audience including basic and clinical scientists. [less ▲]

In this paper we introduce and investigate a very basic semantics for conditionals that can be used to define a broad class of conditional reasoning systems. We show that it encompasses the most popular kinds of conditional reasoning developed in logic-based KR. It turns out that the semantics we propose is appropriate for a structural analysis of those conditionals that do not satisfy the property of Right Weakening. We show that it can be used for the further development of an analysis of the notion of relevance in conditional reasoning. [less ▲]
