  • High Performance Computing on Vector Systems 2010by Michael M. Resch; Katharina Benkert; Xin Wang; Martin Galle; Wolfgang Bez; Hiroaki Kobayashi; Sabine Roller

    Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2010; US$ 149.00

    This book covers the results of the 11th and 12th Tera?op Workshop and continued a series initiated by NEC and the HLRS in 2004. As part of the Tera?op Workbench, it has become a meeting platform for scientists, application developers, international experts and hardware designers to discuss the current state and future directions of supercomputing... more...

  • A Shortcut Through Timeby George Johnson

    Random House 2011; US$ 15.98

    The newest Pentium chip powering PCs and laptops contains 40 million electronic switches packed onto a piece of silicon about the size of a thumbnail. Several years from now, if this incredible shrinking continues, a single chip will hold a billion switches, then a trillion. The logical culmination is a computer in which the switches are so tiny that... more...

  • Quantum Walks for Computer Scientistsby Salvador Venegas-Andraca

    Morgan & Claypool Publishers 2008; US$ 40.00

    Quantum computation, one of the latest joint ventures between physics and the theory of computation, is a scientific field whose main goals include the development of hardware and algorithms based on the quantum mechanical properties of those physical systems used to implement such algorithms. Solving difficult tasks (for example, the Satisfiability... more...

  • Quantum Computer Scienceby Marco Lanzagorta; Jeffrey Uhlmann

    Morgan & Claypool Publishers 2009; US$ 40.00

    In this text we present a technical overview of the emerging field of quantum computation along with new research results by the authors. What distinguishes our presentation from that of others is our focus on the relationship between quantum computation and computer science. Specifically, our emphasis is on the computational model of quantum computingrather... more...

  • Introduction to Reconfigurable Supercomputingby Marco Lanzagorta; Stephen Bique; Robert Rosenberg

    Morgan & Claypool Publishers 2010; US$ 40.00

    This book covers technologies, applications, tools, languages, procedures, advantages, and disadvantages of reconfigurable supercomputing using Field Programmable Gate Arrays (FPGAs). The target audience is the community of users of High Performance Computers (HPC) who may benefit from porting their applications into a reconfigurable environment. As... more...

  • The Complexity of Noiseby Amit Hagar

    Morgan & Claypool Publishers 2010; US$ 30.00

    In quantum computing, where algorithms exist that can solve computational problems more efficiently than any known classical algorithms, the elimination of errors that result from external disturbances or from imperfect gates has become the "holy grail", and a worldwide quest for a large scale fault-tolerant, and computationally superior, quantum computer... more...

  • Quantum Computing for Computer Architects, Second Editionby Tzvetan S. Metodi; Arvin I. Faruque; Frederic T. Chong

    Morgan & Claypool Publishers 2011; US$ 50.00

    Quantum computers can (in theory) solve certain problems far faster than a classical computer running any known classical algorithm. While existing technologies for building quantum computers are in their infancy, it is not too early to consider their scalability and reliability in the context of the design of large-scale quantum computers. To architect... more...

  • Storing Clocked Programs Inside DNAby Jessica Chang; Dennis Shasha

    Morgan & Claypool Publishers 2011; US$ 30.00

    In the history of modern computation, large mechanical calculators preceded computers. A person would sit there punching keys according to a procedure and a number would eventually appear. Once calculators became fast enough, it became obvious that the critical path was the punching rather than the calculation itself. That is what made the stored program... more...
