A first look at stochastic processes
Rosenthal J.,  WORLD SCIENTIFIC, Hackensack, NJ, 2020. 202 pp. Type: Book (978-9-811208-97-3)

Although intended as a textbook, Rosenthal’s A first look at stochastic processes is not quite there. However, it is still a very interesting and useful text with a good account of challenging problems. While the author has done well ...


Data analysis in bi-partial perspective: clustering and beyond
Owsinski J.,  Springer International Publishing, New York, NY, 2020. 153 pp. Type: Book (978-3-030133-88-7)

Owsinski’s book provides an interesting “bi-partial” strategy for analyzing data; it is not only uniquely general, but also successful in building several useful methods to tackle issues related to data analysis, including algori...


Learning representation for multi-view data analysis: models and applications
Ding Z., Zhao H., Fu Y.,  Springer International Publishing, New York, NY, 2019. 268 pp. Type: Book (978-3-030007-33-1)

Ding et al.’s Learning representation for multi-view data analysis not only provides cutting-edge research on multi-view data representation and analysis, but also provides several visual applications and practical challenges, includi...


 BlockQuicksort: avoiding branch mispredictions in Quicksort
Edelkamp S., Weiß A.  Journal of Experimental Algorithmics 24(1): 1-22, 2019. Type: Article

Quite often algorithms with bad worst-case complexity perform better on the average. Quicksort falls into this class. However, one of the drawbacks of Quicksort is that it is vulnerable to branch mispredictions, that is, branch misses. Modern proc...


Can background music facilitate learning?: Preliminary results on reading comprehension
Hu X., Li F., Kong R.  LAK 2019 (Proceedings of the 9th International Conference on Learning Analytics & Knowledge, Tempe, AZ,  Mar 4-8, 2019) 101-105, 2019. Type: Proceedings

In my experience, humming a tune or listening to some soft music helps with learning. But does any background music help, or only some specific type? Hu et al. address this question here. The authors conducted an experiment with four different typ...
