In science:

In [GMS], Gorbounov, Malikov and Schechtman first constructed a conformal algebra in the sense of [K2] (where the details of the proof were left as an exercise) and then they gave a new construction of vertex algebras from conformal algebras (cf. [K2, P]).
On certain vertex algebras and their modules associated with vertex algebroids
However, it seems that completing the exercise posted in [GMS] to fulfill the details in the construction of the conformal algebra from a 1-truncated conformal algebra is not easier than constructing the Lie algebra.
On certain vertex algebras and their modules associated with vertex algebroids
If C = `n∈N C(n) is an N-graded conformal algebra in the sense of [K2], then it is straightforward to see that C(0) ⊕ C(1) is a 1-truncated conformal algebra.
On certain vertex algebras and their modules associated with vertex algebroids
Just as with Lie algebras, direct sums of 1-truncated conformal algebras are 1-truncated conformal algebras.

Criteria of folding must then involve some finite effective spatial extension of the native conformation and then checking whether an evolving conformation has already entered the resulting native ”cocoon”.
Chirality and Protein Folding
It is seen that each of the dynamically obtained example conformations has regions, usually at the terminals, which twist in the opposite sense relative to what is found in the native conformation.

If n = 2 then there is only one real parameter describing the conformal class, and if n = 1, then all such domains are conformally equivalent.

Since a general conformal map scales different parts of the domain by different amounts, the location of the site most likely to be pivotal is not conformally invariant.

Lemma 2.3 If C is a conformal vector field on (M , ω ), it admits a lift ˜C1 (resp. ˜C2) to (P , µ) which is conformal (resp. hamiltonian) if the closed 1-form π ∗ i(C )ω − α is exact.
