I just want to say that I have been working for the USPTO for a while now and never would have considered patents if not for this thread. If anyone has any questions about the USPTO or working as a patent examiner I'll answer what I can.
Yeah, its been several years since I've had any optics classes so I'm struggling to remember. I recall doing some matrix multiplication for compound lenses but I don't dare delve that deeply. I don't think it is impossible, just more effort.
What 'd' should be used for calculating the power when including the third lens? So I have the first two lenses easy enough. But I'm not sure if I take the P12 to be the distance of the second lens, the average of the distance from 1->3 and 1->2 or just the total distance. I suspect it is the...
Homework Statement
I have a compound thick lens problem that I need to find the sign of the refractive power.
Homework Equations
Thick lens equation and focal length equation.
The Attempt at a Solution
I believe all I need to do is calculate the focal length of the first two thick lenses and...
Homework Statement
I am suppose to calculate the relative entropy between two sets of data:
Base set
Set 1:
A C G T
0 0 0 10
0 0 0 10
0 0 10 0
0 10 0 0
10 0 0 0
* * * * //Randomized
0 0 0 10
0 10 0...
I think that I have found a way to do this, but I want to make sure it is correct.
I believe that the equation is telling me to multiply the two probabilities (prob.to be ACGT within R or G and prob. that R or G changed) and then multiply all of those together. I'm just not sure about order...
Homework Statement
Consider an HMM with two possible states, “R” and “G” (for “regulatory” and “gene” sequences respectively). Each state emits one character, chosen from the alphabet {A,C,G,T}.
The transition probabilities of this HMM are:
aRG = aGR = 1/4
aRR = aGG = 3/4
The emission...
Well, the ML method described in class was to take the binomial distribution's derivative, set it to 0 and solve for the probability. So that is the method I used. Is this not correct?
Homework Statement
A strand of length L begins life as all A's. Assume that each letter evolves independent of all the rest until today, 1000 generations later. Within each generation there is a ##\mu## probability that the letter mutates to either C, G, T. Finally, assume that once a letter...
I finally found time to sit and finish this, sorry it took so long. So, I found the maximum with the method I described initially and got the exact some result as if I had just taken the first "simple" method I thought of. It seems my first instinct was correct.
Thanks for the help.
My idea was handle each as either A or Not-A as you mentioned. Since I was explicitly given the hint to use the binomial and maximization likelihood. I don't believe we ever discussed the multinomial distribution but I can see how it works here.
I think that since the problem is really just...
