I am studying bioinformatics. I am trying to solve a problem. So we have a gene, whose initial value x 0 at time t=0 is x 0 =1. A perturbation of factor −0.9789812 is applied to it, such that, at time t=10, its value is 0.0210359. The gene is measured at time-points t=[0,1,2...,10]. How can I know the calculate the values at time t=1,2,...,10, given the only information I have is the value at x 0 and and the perturbation applied ? I am giving the data here
x = [1.0000000,0.3482754,0.1304151,0.0575881,0.0332433,0.0251052,0.0223848,0.0214755,0.0211715,0.0210698,0.0210359]
But I want to know how would I generate this data. I tried the exponential decay function and the values do not correspond to the ones I have in my data set.
So if the gene has an initial value of 1 and a perturbation of −0.9789812 is applied to it, at the final reading of the gene at time t = 10 is 1−0.9789812 = 0.0210188. The decay is not linear, it seems like it has an exponential curve but I dont know how to fit it.
Note that the only information I have is the initial value of the gene, the perturbation applied. I want to be able to calculate the values of gene at any time given this information.

Even if your model is correct and exponential decay is expected, real work data rarely fits perfectly.
I expect that you are familiar with cases of linear relationships e.g. y=ax or y=ax+b. In these cases, you could plot the points on a graph and find the line of best fit.
If the expected relationship is y = e a x then this does not work but note that log(y)=−ax so the relationship between log(y) and x is linear. So, plot log(y) rather than y and try to find the line of best fit.

Meaning of P ( X Y ) P ( X ) P ( Y )
Imagine that we have a set Ω and X and Y are events that can happen, I mean, P ( X ) , P ( Y ) > 0. Then, what does it mean the ratio P ( X Y ) P ( X ) P ( Y ) ?
I know that P ( X Y ) P ( X ) P ( Y ) = P ( X | Y ) P ( X ) = P ( Y | X ) P ( Y ) and if that ratio is equal to 1 then X,Y are independent events, but I can't figure out what exactly it means... please give simple examples.
I found this when reading about lift-data mining.

I have an experiment that relies on measuring temperature as a function of a given condition. I change the condition, allow the temperature to stabilize as much as possible, then take 3 measurements in a row, which are all slightly different, as the values tend to oscillate.
For example, I might have a set of readings that looks like this:
X Temperature
10.1 80.3
10.8 82.1
10.3 78.9
20.4 100.2
20.0 101.1
20.2 101.0
30.1 139.1
30.0 140.2
30.0 138.2
Which I will combine to look like this:
uniqueX Xmean Xstd Tmean Tstd
_______ ______ ________ ______ _______
10 10.2 0.1 80.433 1.6042
20 20.2 0.2 100.77 0.49329
30 30.033 0.057735 139.17 1.0017
% Matlab code for computation
xNom = round(X);
[uniqueX,~,subs] = unique(xNom);
Tmean = accumarray(subs, T, [], @mean);
Tstd = accumarray(subs, T, [], @std);
Xmean = accumarray(subs, X, [], @mean);
Xstd = accumarray(subs, X, [], @std);
tb = table(uniqueX, Xmean, Xstd, Tmean, Tstd);
I'm wondering: what is the best way to plot such data, i.e. when three data points like this are combined to represent one point, what is the best value to use for the error bars on a plot of T vs X, for example in this case?

Two cars travel in the same direction along a straightroad. When a stopwatch reads t=0.00h, car A is atdA=48.0km moving at a constant 36.0km/h.
Later,when the watch reads t=0.50h, car B is at dB=0.00kmmoving at 48.0 km/h. Answer the following questions: first,graphically by creating a position-time graph; second algebraicallyby writing down equations for the postion dA anddB as a function of the stopwatch time, t.
a) what will the watch read when car B passes car A?
b) at what position will the passing occur?
c) when the cars pass, how long will it have been since car Awas at the reference point, d= 0 km?

Two-sigma notation k-means clustering
I am looking at a k-means clustering algorithm, where the problem is the following:
argmin C 1 , . . C k ; c 1 c 1 , . . c k c k i = 1 k x C i | | x x c i c i | | 2
where x is a data vector, e.g. x 1 x 1 = ( 1 , 2 , 3 ) , c i c i is the centroid of C i cluster. I conceptually understand what the above means, namely we find such centroids for each cluster that minimize the total squared distance between each centroid in a cluster and datapoints in that cluster. But I fail to understand how I would expand out the above expression.
