Abstract Drugs and chemical compounds are often modeled as graphs in which the each vertex of the graph expresses an atom of molecule and covalent bounds between atoms are represented by the edges between their corresponding vertices. Background Recent years have witnessed the rapid development in nanomaterials and drugs, which keeps in pace with the development of pharmacopedia.

Full size image. The present multi-level persistent homology is able to describe any selected interactions of interest and delivers two benefits in characterizing biomolecules. Firstly, the pairwise non-covalent interactions can be reflected by the 0th dimensional barcodes. Secondly, such treatment generates more higher dimensional barcodes and the small structural fluctuation among different conformations of the same molecule can be captured.

The persistent barcode representation of the molecule can be significantly enriched to better distinguish between different molecular structures and isomers. A different conformation of the ligand is generated by using the Frog2 web server [ ]. The persistent barcodes generated using Rips complex with the distance matrices M are identical and only have 0th dimensional bars due to the simple structure.

In this case, the 0th dimensional bars only reflect the length of each bond and therefore fail to distinguish the two slightly different conformations of the same molecule. However, when the modified distance matrices are employed, the barcode representation is significantly enriched and is able to capture the tiny structural perturbation between the conformations. An illustration of the outcome from the modified distance matrix is shown in Fig 8. Illustration of representation ability of in reflecting structural perturbations among conformations of the same molecule.

Right: The persistence diagram showing the 1st and 2nd dimensional results generated using Rips complex with for two conformations. It is worth noticing that the barcodes generated using Rips complex with M are identical for the two conformations. In protein-ligand binding analysis and analysis involving interactions, we are interested in the change of topological invariants induced by interactions that are caused by binding or other processes. Similar to the idea of multi-level persistent homology, we can design a distance matrix to focus on the interactions of interest.

In applications, A 1 and A 2 can be respectively a set of atoms of the protein and a set of atoms of the ligand in a protein-ligand complex. In this case, the characterization of interactions between ligand and protein is an important task. In the modeling of point mutation induced protein stability changes, A 1 could be the set of atoms at the mutation site and A 2 could be the set of atoms of surrounding residues close to the mutation site. Similar treatment can be used for protein-protein and protein-nucleic acid interactions.

For biomolecules, the interaction strength between pair of atoms usually does not align linearly to their Euclidean distances. For example, van der Waals interaction is often described by the Lennard-Jones potential. Therefore, kernel function filtration can be used to emphasize certain geometric scales. This filtration can be incorporated in the element specific persistent homology 7 Additionally, one can simultaneously use two or more correlation functions characterized by different scales to generate a multiscale representation of biomolecules [ ].

One form of the correlation function based filtration matrix is constructed by flexibility and rigidity index. Note that the rigidity index is given by [ ] 9 This expression is closely related to the rigidity density based volumetric filtration [ 90 ]. Electrostatic effects are some of the most important effects in biomolecular structure, function, and dynamics. The embedding of electrostatics in topological invariants is of particular interest and can be very useful in describing highly charged biomolecules such as nucleic acids and their complexes.

We introduce electrostatics interaction induced distance functions in Eq 10 to address the electrostatic interactions among charged atoms. The abstract distance between two charged particles are rescaled according to their charges and their geometric distance, and is modeled as 10 where d ij is the distance between the two atoms, q i and q j are the partial charges of the two atoms, and c is a nonzero tunable parameter.

The form of the function is adopted from sigmoid function which is widely used as an activation function in artificial neural networks. Such function regularizes the input signal to the [0, 1] interval. Other functions can be similarly used. This formulation can be extended to systems with dipole or higher order multipole approximations to electron density.

The weak interactions due to long distances or neutral charges result in correlation values close to 0. The parameter c is rather physical but chosen to effectively spread the computed values over the 0, 1 interval so that the results can be used by machine learning methods. Another simple choice of charge correlation functions is However, this choice will lead to a different filtration domain.

Eq 11 can be used for electrostatic filtration as well. In this case, the filtration parameter can be the charge density value and cubical complex based filtration can be used. Multicomponent persistent homology refers to the construction of multiple persistent homology components from a given object to describe its properties.

Obviously, element specific persistent homology leads to multi-component persistent homology. Nevertheless, in element specific persistent homology, the emphasis is given to the appropriate selection of important elements for describing certain biological properties or functions. For example, in biological context, electronegative atoms are selected for describing hydrogen bond interactions, polar atoms are selected for describing hydrophilic interactions, and carbon atoms are selected for describing hydrophobic interactions.

Note that in chemical context, an atom may have many sharply different chemical and physical properties, depending on its oxidation states. Whereas, in multicomponent persistent homology, the emphasis is placed on the systematic generation of topological invariants from different combinatorial possibilities and the construction of 2D or high-dimensional persistent maps for deep convolutional neural networks.

Barcode representation of topological invariants offers a visualization of persistent homology analysis. In machine learning analysis, we convert the barcode representation of topological invariants into structured feature arrays for machine learning. To this end, we introduce two methods, i. These methods are discussed below. Python code is given in S1 Code for the generation of features used in the final models in the Results section. Note that the above discussion should be applied to three topological dimensions, i. In general, this approach enables the description of bond lengths, including the length of non-covalent interactions, in biomolecules and was referred to as binned persistent homology in our earlier work [ 14 , 27 , 94 ].

Another method of feature vector generation from a set of barcodes is to extract important statistics of barcode collections such as maximum values and standard deviations. Three statistic feature vectors , , and can then be generated in the sense of the statistics of the collection of barcodes. The generation of is the same by examining the set Death. Statistics feature vectors are collected from barcodes of three topological dimensions, i.

A more thorough description of sets of barcodes is to first divide the sets into subsets and extract features analogously to the barcode statistics method. As shown in Fig 9 , a persistence diagram can be divided into slices in different directions.

Schultz Polynomials and Their Topological Indices of Jahangir Graphs J2,m

The barcodes that fall in each slice form a subset. Each subset is described in terms of feature vector by using the barcode statistics method. When the persistence diagram is sliced horizontally, members in each subset have similar death values and the barcode statistics feature vector is generated for the set of birth values. Similarly, members in each subset have similar birth values if the persistence diagram is sliced vertically, and the barcode statistics feature vector is generated for the set of death values.

The barcode statistics feature vectors are generate for both set of birth values and set of death values if the persistence diagram is sliced diagonally, where members in each subset have similar persistence. This type of feature vector generation describes the set of barcodes in more detail but will produce longer feature vectors. The barcodes are plotted as persistence diagrams with the horizontal axis being birth and the vertical axis being death. From left to right, the subsets are generated according to the slicing of death, birth, and persistence values.

The construction of multi-dimensional persistence is an interesting topic in persistent homology. In general, it is believed that multi-dimensional persistence has better representational power for complex systems described by multiple parameters [ 43 ]. Although multidimensional persistence is hard to compute, one can compute persistence for one parameter while fixing the rest of the parameters to a sequence of fixed values.

In the case where there are two parameters, a bifiltration can be done by taking turns to fix one parameter to a sequence of fixed values while computing persistence for the other parameter. For example, one can take a sequence of resolutions and compute persistence for distance with each fixed resolution. The sequence of outputs can be stacked to form a multidimensional representation [ ].

Computing persistence multiple times and stacking the results is especially useful when the parameters that are not chosen to be the filtration parameter are naturally discrete with underlying orders. For example, the multi-component or element specific persistent homology will result in many persistent homology computations over different selections of atoms.

Topological sorting(1)

These results can be ordered by the percentage of atoms used of the whole molecule or by their importance scores in classical machine learning methods. Also, multiple underlying dimensions exist in the element specific persistent homology characterization of molecules. This property enables 2D or 3D topological representation of molecules.

Based on the observation that the performance of the predictor degenerates when too many element combinations are used, we order the element combinations according to their individual performance on the task using methods of ensemble of trees. Combining the dimension of spatial scale and dimension of element combinations, a 2D topological representation is obtained.

Such representation is expected to work better in the case of complex geometry such as protein-ligand complexes. For 0th dimensional, since all bars start from zero, there is no need for. These eight 2D representations are regarded as eight channels of a 2D topological image. In protein-ligand binding analysis, 2D topological features are generated for the barcodes of a protein-ligand complex and for the differences between barcodes of the protein-ligand complex and those of the protein.

Therefore, we have a total of 16 channels in a 2D image for the protein-ligand complex. This channel image can be fed into the training or the prediction of convolutional neural networks. In the characterization of protein-ligand complexes using alpha complexes, 2D features are generated from the alpha complex based on persistent homology computations of protein and protein-ligand complex. A total of element combinations are considered. Fig 10 illustrates 16 channels of sample 1wkm in PDBBind database. These images are directly used in deep convolutional neural networks for training and prediction.

For each map, the horizontal axis is the dimension of spatial scale and the vertical axis is element combinations ordered by their importance. When there are fewer element combinations considered which can hardly form another axis, the axis of element combinations can be added into the original channels to form 1D representations that can be used in 1D CNN.

Three machine learning algorithms, including k-nearest neighbors KNN regression, gradient boosting trees and deep convolutional neural networks, are integrated with our topological representations to construct topological learning algorithms. One of the simplest machine learning algorithms is k-nearest neighbors KNN for classification or for regression. In KNN regression, for a given object, its property values is obtained by the average or the weighted average of the values of its k nearest neighbors induced by a given metric of similarity.

Then, the problem becomes how to construct a metric on the dataset. In the present work, instead of computing similarities from constructed feature vectors, the similarity between biomolecules can simply be derived from distances between barcodes generated from different biomolecules. Popular barcode space metrics include the bottleneck distance [ ] and more generally, the Wasserstein metrics [ 95 , 96 ]. The definition of the two metrics is summarized as follows.

The bottleneck distance is defined as , where the minimum is taken over all possible bijections from subsets of A to subsets of B. The Wasserstein metric, a L p generalized analog to the bottleneck distance can be defined with the penalty [ 96 ] 15 and the corresponding distance. It approaches the bottleneck distance by setting p goes to infinity. Wasserstein metric measures the closeness of barcodes generated from different biomolecules.

It will be interesting to consider other distances for metric spaces, such as Hausdorff distance, Gromov-Hausdorff distance [ ], and Yau-Hausdorff distance [ ] for biomolecular analysis. However, an exhaustive study of this issue is beyond the scope of the present work. The barcode space metrics can be directly used to assess the representation power of various persistent homology methods on biomolecules without being affected by the choice of machine learning models and hyperparameters.

We show in the section of results that the barcode space metrics induced similarity measurement is significantly correlated to molecule functions. Wasserstein metric measures from biomolecules can also be directly implemented in a kernel based method such as nonlinear support vector machine algorithm for classification and regression tasks. However, this aspect is not explored in the present work. Gradient boosting trees is an ensemble method which ensembles individual decision trees to achieve the capability of learning complex feature target maps and can effectively prevent overfitting by using shrinkage technique.

The gradient boosting trees method is realized using the GradientBoostingRegressor module in scikit-learn software package [ ] version 0. A set of parameters found to be efficient in our previous study on the protein-ligand binding affinity prediction [ 27 ] is used uniformly unless specified. The deep convolutional neural networks in this work are implemented using Keras [ ] version 1.

For TopBP-DL Complex , a widely used convolutional neural network architecture is employed beginning with convolution layers followed by dense layers. Due to the limited computation resources, parameter optimization is not performed, while most parameters are adopted from our earlier work [ 94 ]. Reasonable parameters are assigned manually. The detailed architecture is shown in Fig The Adam optimizer with learning rate 0.

The loss function is the mean squared error function. The network is trained with a batch size of 16 and epochs. The training data is shuffled for each epoch. The numbers in convolution layers mean the number of filters and filter size from left to right. The dense layers are drawn with number of neurons and activation function. The pooling size of the pooling layers and dropout rate of the dropout layers are listed.

The batch size is larger than that used in TopBP-DL due to the much larger training set in this problem. Because of the same reason, the training process converges to a small loss very fast with only a few training steps.

Graphical representation of a rotaxane Structure of a rotaxane that has a cyclobis paraquat-p-phenylene macrocycle. The name is derived from the Latin for wheel rota and axle axis. The two components of a rotaxane are kinetically trapped since the ends of the dumbbell often called stoppers are larger than the internal diameter of the ring and prevent dissociation unthreading of the components since this would require significant distortion of the covalent bonds.

Much of the research concerning rotaxanes and other mechanically interlocked molecular architectures, such as catenanes, has been focused on their efficient synthesis or their utilization as artificial molecular machines. However, examples of rotaxane substructure have been found in naturally occurring peptides, including: cystine knot peptides, cyclotides. Olympiadane is a mechanically-interlocked molecule composed of five interlocking macrocycles that resembles the Olympic rings. The molecule is a linear pentacatenane or a [5]catenane.

It was synthesized and named by Fraser Stoddart and coworkers in See also Olympicene References Amabilino, D. Browne, M. The New York Times. Retrieved 3 January An artificial chemistry[1][2][3] is a chemical-like system that usually consists of objects, called molecules, that interact according to rules resembling chemical reaction rules.

Artificial chemistries are created and studied in order to understand fundamental properties of chemical systems, including prebiotic evolution, as well as for developing chemical computing systems. Artificial chemistry is a field within computer science wherein chemical reactions—often biochemical ones—are computer-simulated, yielding insights on evolution, self-assembly, and other biochemical phenomena. The field does not use actual chemicals, and should not be confused with either synthetic chemistry or computational chemistry. Rather, bits of information are used to represent the starting molecules, and the end products are examined along with the processes that led to them.

The field originated in artificial life but has shown to be a versatile method with applications in many fields such as chemistry, economics, sociology and. A collection of circles and the corresponding unit disk graph Discrete geometry and combinatorial geometry are branches of geometry that study combinatorial properties and constructive methods of discrete geometric objects. Most questions in discrete geometry involve finite or discrete sets of basic geometric objects, such as points, lines, planes, circles, spheres, polygons, and so forth.

The subject focuses on the combinatorial properties of these objects, such as how they intersect one another, or how they may be arranged to cover a larger object. Discrete geometry has a large overlap with convex geometry and computational geometry, and is closely related to subjects such as finite geometry, combinatorial optimization, digital geometry, discrete differential geometry, geometric graph theory, toric geometry, and combinatorial topology. History Although polyhedra and tessellations had been studied for many years by people such as Kepler and Cauchy, modern discrete geometry has its origins in the late A triangle immersed in a saddle-shape plane a hyperbolic paraboloid , as well as two diverging ultraparallel lines.

Differential geometry is a mathematical discipline that uses the techniques of differential calculus, integral calculus, linear algebra and multilinear algebra to study problems in geometry.

enter The theory of plane and space curves and surfaces in the three-dimensional Euclidean space formed the basis for development of differential geometry during the 18th century and the 19th century. Since the late 19th century, differential geometry has grown into a field concerned more generally with the geometric structures on differentiable manifolds. Differential geometry is closely related to differential topology and the geometric aspects of the theory of differential equations. The differential geometry of surfaces captures many of the key ideas and techniques endemic to this field.

History of development Differential geometry arose and developed as a result of and in connection to the mathematical a.

In the mathematical field of graph theory, a complete graph is a simple undirected graph in which every pair of distinct vertices is connected by a unique edge. A complete digraph is a directed graph in which every pair of distinct vertices is connected by a pair of unique edges one in each direction. However, drawings of complete graphs, with their vertices placed on the points of a regular polygon, appeared already in the 13th century, in the work of Ramon Llull.

Topoisomerases are enzymes that participate in the overwinding or underwinding of DNA. The winding problem of DNA arises due to the intertwined nature of its double-helical structure. In order to prevent and correct these types of topological problems caused by the double helix, topoisomerases bind to DNA and cut the phosphate backbone of either one or both the DNA strands.

This intermediate break allows the DNA to be untangled or unwound, and, at the end of these processes, the DNA backbone is resealed again. Since the overall chemical composition and connectivity of the DNA do not change, the DNA substrate and product are chemical isomers, differing only in their global topology, resulting in the name for these enzymes. Topoisomerases are isomerase enzymes that act. Dynamical systems theory is an area of mathematics used to describe the behavior of the complex dynamical systems, usually by employing differential equations or difference equations.

When differential equations are employed, the theory is called continuous dynamical systems. From a physical point of view, continuous dynamical systems is a generalization of classical mechanics, a generalization where the equations of motion are postulated directly and are not constrained to be Euler—Lagrange equations of a least action principle.

When difference equations are employed, the theory is called discrete dynamical systems. When the time variable runs over a set that is discrete over some intervals and continuous over other intervals or is any arbitrary time-set such as a cantor set, one gets dynamic equations on time scales. Some situations may also be modeled by mixed operators, such as differential-difference equations. This theory deals with the long-term qualitative behavior of dynamical systems,[1] and studie.
