|System and method for timed order entry and modification|| 20130132262 || 20130523 |
| A system and method for defining and processing timed orders are defined. According to one embodiment, a trader may define a timed order by defining an intra-day time trigger or a time period when the timed order should be automatically modified, such as deleted or cancelled/replaced with a new order. In one embodiment, the intra-day time trigger or time period may be dynamically changed to a later time, for example, upon receiving a predetermined user input. Also, the time trigger and time period may be configured to dynamically vary based on any user configurable formula. Also, the timed order may be associated with one or more actions to be taken once the order is deleted, such as sending a new order, for example.

|Adaptive coefficient scan order|| 20130070843 || 20130321 |
| A digital media codec adaptively re-arranges a coefficient scan order of transform coefficients in accordance with the local statistics of the digital media, so that the coefficients can be encoded more efficiently using entropy encoding. The adaptive scan ordering is applied causally at encoding and decoding to avoid explicitly signaling the scan order to the decoder in the compressed digital media stream. For computational efficiency, the adaptive scan order re-arranges the scan order by applying a conditional exchange operation on adjacently ordered coefficient locations via a single traversal of the scan order per update of the statistical analysis.
