The algorithm of encoding is our state of art propitiatory development. The general principal of algorithm is to randomly melt needle of the message into random haystack of numbers.

Data analysis.

Data analysis is the bridge from observation to conclusion. It is the process of making sense of reality as one becomes aware of it. In life a subject always perceive signals via his detectors like eyes, ears, skin, nose and tongue. A brain of human being continuously analyzes enormous flow of data in routine subconscious manner when only very small portion is on the level that can be verbally described and formally mathematically processed at the modern level of science.
The area of science called artificial intellect, AI, is doing enormous progress in modeling behavior of alive being that is manifesting itself in technological achievements like in self-driving cars, automatic voice callers, personalized web-advertisement, automatic diagnose system such as IBM Watson and robots of all kind. The advanced data analysis is integral part of AI.
Data analysis uses to solve life problems these could be formulated in terms of mathematics. The same is more and more applicable now to the science in general that has experienced evolution from collection and classification of anecdote like observations to mathematically formulated fundamental laws of nature.
Without pretending to cover all areas of data analysis even on its most basic there will be articles describing some problems in life that can be solved by methods of data analysis and shown how to do it with the held of LeoDataAnalysis.

Crystal growth.

A crystallization phenomena manifests itself in a long list of natural and technological processes. Crystals are solid materials with atoms located in regular position defined by long distance symmetry. The structure of crystals gives each of them special and often unique properties essential for material culture of civilization. The rate of transformation of atomic structure motive of matter from liquid or gas state into crystals plays important role in series of industrial productions of variety construction and other industrial materials as well for research of earth minerals formation in geology and in space bodies in cosmology.

There is expanding industry for production of bulk single crystals for subsequent usage in electronics or for gems in jewelry. An optimization of the technology presumes increasing productivity that is equivalent in this case to finding a maximum rate of crystal growth securing in the same time a quality of the crystal that means keeping concentration of defects on atomic and higher scales on acceptable level. In ranking by influence on the product output the kinetics of crystal growth stays comparable very close here to the thermo- and mass- transportation phenomena.

The knowledge of how much lower temperature on the border of the crystal could be set during its growth without deviating from layer-by-layer mechanism of growth that provides the best possible quality of the crystal. For mass produced construction materials like metals and alloys, fine ceramic, Portland and high-alumina cements and for many other materials in industry the crystalline content of the product is strongly depend on time-temperature conditions of treatment of the raw mixture materials. Taking into account that different crystalline phases can have mismatched rates of their spreading out (crystal growth rates could be and mostly are different for them at the same temperature), the knowledge how atomic structure of crystals influences kinetic of crystallization could help in choosing strategy for experiment planning in development of the best quality products. There is necessity to avoid crystals formation during  production of materials with amorphous atomic structures like commonly used glasses or more exotic materials like fast frozen amorphous metals.

The knowledge of growth rate of crystals in initial melts as a function of temperature can provide guideline to defining minimum cooling rate that is nevertheless fast enough to avoid formation of the crystals in glass forming melts. Formation of thin films on monocrystal substrates in vacuum by physical or vapor deposition demands knowing the rate of crystal growth at given temperature. To obtain crystalline film the velocity of material deposition should be at least slower compare to the crystal growth rate. A petrography analysis of samples in geology or found in meteorite rocks permits to obtain their crystalline content. Additional information about relative growth rate of these different crystalline phases helps to deceiver a history of physical conditions of their places of origin.

Deposition of epitaxial films of multicomponent compounds by magnetron sputtering, with YBa2Cu3O7-δ as an example.
With the high-temperature superconductor YBa2Cu3O7 -δ used as an example it is shown by modeling the transport of the target atoms during magnetron sputtering that it is in principle possible to deposit multicomponent compounds in the following regimes: deposition from a target of adjusted composition at a large magnetron-substrate distance, off-axis deposition, and the use of aerodynamic transport in deposition at high pressures from a stoichiometric target. An analysis is made of the dependence of the quality of the deposited films on the thermodynamic conditions of the substrate during the deposition and on the rate at which the material is deposited on it.
