Zipf, Power-law, Pareto - a ranking tutorial
Many man made and naturally occurring phenomena, including city sizes, incomes, word frequencies, and earthquake magnitudes, are distributed according to a power-law distribution. A power-law implies that small occurrences are extremely common, whereas large instances are extremely rare. This regularity or 'law' is sometimes also referred to as Zipf and sometimes Pareto. To add to the confusion, the laws alternately refer to ranked and unranked distributions. Here we show that all three terms, Zipf, power-law, and Pareto, can refer to the same thing, and how to easily move from the ranked to the unranked distributions and relate their exponents.

Abstract Algebra: Course Notes -- J.S. Milne
These are full notes for all the advanced (graduate-level) courses I have taught since 1986. Some of the notes give complete proofs (Group Theory, Fields and Galois Theory, Algebraic Number Theory, Class Field Theory, Algebraic Geometry), while others are more in the nature of introductory overviews to a topic. They have all been heavily revised from the originals. One day I may publish some of them as books, but until I do they are living documents, so please send me corrections (especially significant mathematical corrections) and suggestions for improvements.

Armed Bear Common Lisp (ABCL) - Common Lisp on the JVM
Armed Bear Common Lisp (ABCL) is a full implementation of the Common Lisp language featuring both an interpreter and a compiler, running in the JVM. Originally started to be a scripting language for the J editor, it now supports JSR-223 (Java scripting API): it can be a scripting engine in any Java application. Additionally, it can be used to implement (parts of) the application using Java to Lisp integration APIs.

TIME International Symposium on Temporal Representation and Reasoning
TIME has been for more than twenty years the only yearly multidisciplinary international event dedicated to the topic of time in computer science. The purpose of the symposium is to bring together active researchers in different research areas involving temporal representation and reasoning. The symposium also welcomes research papers on the related topics of spatial and spatio-temporal representation and reasoning. In the early years, most contributions came from the Artificial Intelligence community, but the number of contributions from other areas such as Temporal Logic and Verification and  partly from Temporal Databases has been increasing in the last years.

How to Build a Blockchain in Python (Get Pre-built Runtime) | ActiveState
The system that Bitcoin relies upon — a growing list of records (i.e. blocks) that are linked to one another — is known as a blockchain. Bitcoin was the first successful application of this system, and shortly after its rise in popularity, other cryptocurrencies were founded on the same principles. This system, however, is not restricted to storing financial information. Rather, the type of data being stored is inconsequential to and independent of the blockchain network.

Computer Age Statistical Inference: Algorithms, Evidence and Data Science
The twenty-first century has seen a breathtaking expansion of statistical methodology, both in scope and in influence. “Big data,” “data science,” and “machine learning” have become familiar terms in the news, as statistical methods are brought to bear upon the enormous data sets of modern science and commerce. How did we get here? And where are we going? This book takes us on a journey through the revolution in data analysis following the introduction of electronic computation in the 1950s. Beginning with classical inferential theories – Bayesian, frequentist, Fisherian – individual chapters take up a series of influential topics: survival analysis, logistic regression, empirical Bayes, the jackknife and bootstrap, random forests, neural networks, Markov chain Monte Carlo, inference after model selection, and dozens more. The book integrates methodology and algorithms with statistical inference, and ends with speculation on the future direction of statistics and data science.

Net-zero emissions energy systems | Science
Path to zero carbon emissions
Models show that to avert dangerous levels of climate change, global carbon dioxide emissions must fall to zero later this century. Most of these emissions arise from energy use. Davis et al. review what it would take to achieve decarbonization of the energy system. Some parts of the energy system are particularly difficult to decarbonize, including aviation, long-distance transport, steel and cement production, and provision of a reliable electricity supply. Current technologies and pathways show promise, but integration of now-discrete energy sectors and industrial processes is vital to achieve minimal emissions.

They're derived from weaknesses in real-world systems and modern cryptographic constructions. We give you enough info to learn about the underlying crypto concepts yourself. When you're finished, you'll not only have learned a good deal about how cryptosystems are built, but you'll also understand how they're attacked.
