Music Retrieval based on Melodic Similarity By Rainer Typke
Paperback: $11.66
Ships in 3-5 business days
This book describes a method for retrieving pieces of music that contain musical material which is melodically similar to a given query. The method uses a continuous dissimilarity measure and works... More > for symbolic representations of music such as MIDI files. The algorithmic complexity is logarithmic, and therefore the method scales well. The more data added to the searchable database, the smaller the increase in response time. This method produced the best results for the MIREX 2006 “Symbolic Melodic Similarity” retrieval competition. Other topics include a survey of music information retrieval systems and a description of how well vantage indexing works for music. Further, the book contains a chapter about evaluating music information retrieval systems and a measure, “average dynamic recall”, that is well suited to this task.< Less

(7 Ratings)
The Code Review Guide is currently at release version 1.1 and the second best selling OWASP book in 2008. Many positive comments have been feedback regarding this initial version and believe... More > it’s a key enabler for the OWASP fight against software insecurity. It has even inspired individuals to build tools based on its information. The combination of a book on secure code review and tools to support such an activity is very powerful as it gives the developer community a place to start regarding secure application development. Going forward I hope to further integrate with the ASVS and other guides such as the testing and ASDR guides shall be perfromed for version 2.0.

The Performance of Open Source Applications By Tavish Armstrong

In 1974, Donald Knuth wrote, "We should forget about small efficiencies, say about 97% of the time: premature optimization is the root of all evil." With computers available now that are... More > millions of times faster than those available then, today's programmers have even less reason to worry about shaving cycles and saving bytes than those a generation ago. But "less" isn't "none": every once in a while, squeezing the last ounce of performance out of the machine really does matter. This book is written by over a dozen developers who have grappled with slow code, memory leaks, or uncontrollable latency in open source software. They share their mistakes and successes, and give the reader an over-the-shoulder view of how they approached their specific challenges. With examples from bioinformatics research code to web browsers, the solutions are as varied as the problems. This book will help junior and senior developers alike understand how their colleagues think about performance.< Less
