Models of Computation for Big Data

Description The big data tsunami changes the perspective of industrial and academic research in how they address both foundational questions and practical applications. This calls for a paradigm shift in algorithms and the underlying mathematical techniques. There is a need to understand foundational strengths and address the state of the art challenges in big data that could lead to practical impact. The main goal of this book is to introduce algorithmic techniques for dealing with big data sets. Traditional algorithms work successfully when the input data fits well within memory. In many recent application situations, however, the size of the input data is too large to fit...

Universal Coding and Order Identification by Model Selection Methods

Description The purpose of these notes is to highlight the far-reaching connections between Information Theory and Statistics. Universal coding and adaptive compression are indeed closely related to statistical inference concerning processes and using maximum likelihood or Bayesian methods. The book is divided into four chapters, the first of which introduces readers to lossless coding, provides an intrinsic lower bound on the codeword length in terms of Shannon’s entropy, and presents some coding methods that can achieve this lower bound, provided the source distribution is known. In turn, Chapter 2 addresses universal coding on finite alphabets, and seeks to find coding procedures that can achieve the...

Introduction to Simple Shock Waves in Air: With Numerical Solutions Using Artificial Viscosity

Description This book provides an elementary introduction to some one-dimensional fluid flow problems involving shock waves in air. The differential equations of fluid flow are approximated by finite difference equations and these in turn are numerically integrated in a stepwise manner. Artificial viscosity is introduced into the numerical calculations in order to deal with shocks. The presentation is restricted to the finite-difference approach to solve the coupled differential equations of fluid flow as distinct from finite-volume or finite-element methods. This text presents the results arising from the numerical solution using Mathcad programming. Both plane and spherical shock waves are discussed with particular emphasis on very...
