Memory Delta - Task Manager

I'd appreciate someone giving me an explanation of the 'Mem Delta' column which I can find in Task Manager (see attachment).

In particular, what exactly is the Memory Delta? And, why do I sometimes see entries in brackets, such as (12) K and then entries will appear without brackets, such as 344 K. What's the difference?

A detailed explanation would be appreciated, and please, no comments which are simply links to other sites.

Thanks!

Memory Delta is the change in memory use, in kilobytes, since the last update.

For that statement you can think of update as like screen refresh.

(12) K is negative - memory use went down 12k.
344 K is positive - memory use went up 344k.

Ah... Delta in that sense. That makes sense! Thanks for clarifying.
