PATENTS 
 SearchEnhanced TrieBased Syntactic Pattern
Recognition of Sequences. Inventors: Ghada Badr and B. John Oommen.
U.S. and Canada. U.S Patent No. 7,689,588 issued on March 30, 2010. Canadian Patent No. 2,608,772 issued on March 22, 2013. Click here for an overview.
Significance of the Patent: This patent solves the problem of achieving the syntactic pattern recognition of sequences, when the
dictionary is stored as a trie. The competing patent was
invented by Risvik, and our invention is, in some cases, five times faster than Risvik's.
 A Method For Encryption with Statistical Perfect
Secrecy. Inventors: B. John Oommen and Luis
G. Rueda. U.S., Canada, and in some other countries. U.S. Patent No. 7,508,935 issued on March 24, 2009. Canadian Patent No. 2,460,863 issued on April 26, 2011.

.
Significance of the Patent: This patent solves a compressionbased problem that was reported
to be unsolved in the standard textbooks. Using this solution, we were able to invent an
encryption which provided Statistical Perfect Secrecy. We
believe that our solution is still the only one known for this
problem.
 Method of Comparing the Closeness of a Target Tree to Other
Trees Using Noisy Subsequence Tree Processing.
Inventor: B. John Oommen. U.S. and Canada. U.S. Patent No. 7,278,026 issued on October 23, 2007.
Canadian Patent No. 2,386,578 issued on June 8, 2010.

Significance of the Patent: This patent solves the problem of recognizing noisy subsequence trees. To the best of our knowledge,
our patented solution is still the only patented invention
which solves the problem.
 A Method of Generating
Attribute Cardinality Maps. Inventor: B. John Oommen and
Murali Thiyagarajah. U.S. and Canada.
U.S Patent No. 6,865,567 issued on March 8, 2005. Canadian Patent No. 2,279,359 issued on March 16, 2012. For an overview click here.
Significance of the Patent: All the database systems (ORACLE, DB2, Sybase etc.) achieve query optimization using the equidepth histogram. This patent presents two new histogram methods, namely
the Rectangular Attribute Cardinality Map and the Trapezoidal
Attribute Cardinality Map. Both of these estimate the query result
sizes more accurately than the equidepth histogram, and thus yield
significantly superior query optimization.
