When you are a multidisciplinary scientist or teacher, one way of measuring your success is by looking at what students and others in different fields and countries do with the tools and resources you develop. Satisfaction goes all the way up when these help make a difference in their life.

I’m happy to know that in his 2018 PhD thesis “On Enhancing the Security of Time Constrained Mobile ContactlessTransactions” (https://pure.royalholloway.ac.uk/portal/files/33898207/Iakovos_Gurulian_PhD_Thesis.pdf), the author, Iakovos Gurulian from the Information Security Group, Department of Mathematics at the prestigious Royal Holloway, University of London, developed a Python program capable of running our Binary Similarity Calculator (http://www.minerazzi.com/tools/similarity/binary-similarity-calculator.php), which computes 72 different similarity measures. See pages 87-89, tables 4.1 and 4.2, and reference 118 of the thesis.

The Tutorial on Distance and Similarity (http://www.minerazzi.com/tutorials/distance-similarity-tutorial.pdf) was also cited as reference 60.

According to https://www.topuniversities.com/, Royal Holloway ranks 6/10 in London and 291/1000 in the world. Famous for its Founder’s Building, one of the most spectacular university buildings in the world, the College was officially opened by Queen Victoria in 1886.
