Cet algorithme est-il efficace ? (Vidéo)

La version itérative de notre algorithme d'alignement optimal de séquences est indéniablement beaucoup plus efficace que sa version récursive, puisque nous avons vu qu'il permettait d'éviter que le coût d'un même nœud soit réévalué plusieurs fois.

3.1 The role of observation

It was clear to Canadian psychologist Albert Bandura (1924– ) that not only is children's behaviour shaped by its consequences, but also that children learn by watching the behaviour of people around them. In contrast to behaviourism, Bandura's social learning theory emphasised the importance of children imitating the behaviours, emotions and attitudes of those they saw around them:

1.2 Resource availability and species diversity

A wide range of ecosystems has been studied in terms of their species diversity and the availability of resources.
