  • 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...

  • High-Level Structures for Quantum Computingby Jaroslaw Miszczak

    Morgan & Claypool Publishers 2012; US$ 40.00

    This book is concerned with the models of quantum computation. Information processing based on the rules of quantum mechanics provides us with new opportunities for developing more efficient algorithms and protocols. However, to harness the power offered by quantum information processing it is essential to control the behavior of quantum mechanical... more...

  • HPC@Green ITby Ralf Gruber; Vincent Keller; Erich Strohmaier

    Springer 2010; US$ 89.99

    The authors present methods to reduce computer energy consumption by means of a better usage of a specific set of resources and maximizing the efficiency of the running applications. The processor frequency is adjusted to the needs of the running job, leading to a power drop by a factor of 2 and doubling battery life time of laptops. It is shown how... more...

  • High Performance Computing in Science and Engineering '09by Wolfgang E. Nagel

    Springer 2010; US$ 179.00

    This book presents the state of the art in simulation on supercomputers. Leading researchers present results achieved on systems of the High Performance Computing Center Stuttgart (HLRS) for the year 2009. The reports cover all fields of computational science and engineering ranging from CFD to computational physics and chemistry to computer science... more...

  • FRONTIERS IN QUANTUM INFORMATION RESEARCHby Mikio Nakahara; Shu Tanaka

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2012; US$ 166.00

    This book is a collection of lecture notes/contributions from a summer school on decoherence, entanglement & entropy and a workshop on MPS (matrix product states) & DMRG (density matrix renormalization group). Subjects of the summer school include introduction to MPS, black holes, qubits and octonions, weak measurement, entanglement measures and separability,... more...

  • Energy-Efficient High Performance Computingby James H. Laros III; Kevin Pedretti; Sue Kelly; Wei Shu; Kurt Ferreira; John Vandyke; Courtenay Vaughan

    Springer 2012; US$ 39.95

    In this work, the unique power measurement capabilities of the Cray XT architecture were exploited to gain an understanding of power and energy use, and the effects of tuning both CPU and network bandwidth. Modifications were made to deterministically halt cores when idle. Additionally, capabilities were added to alter operating P-state. At the application... more...

  • Integrated Optical Interconnect Architectures for Embedded Systemsby Ian O'Connor; Gabriela Nicolescu

    Springer 2012; US$ 139.00

    This book provides a broad overview of current research in optical interconnect technologies and architectures. Introductory chapters on high-performance computing and the associated issues in conventional interconnect architectures, and on the fundamental building blocks for integrated optical interconnect, provide the foundations for the bulk of... more...

  • Quantum Information and Quantum Computingby Mikio Nakahara; Yoshitaka Sasaki

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2012; US$ 127.00

    The open research center project ?Interdisciplinary fundamental research toward realization of a quantum computer? has been supported by the Ministry of Education, Japan for five years. This is a collection of the research outcomes by the members engaged in the project. To make the presentation self-contained, it starts with an overview by Mikio Nakahara,... more...

  • LECTURES ON QUANTUM COMPUTING, THERMODYNAMICS AND STATISTICAL PHYSICSby Mikio Nakahara; Shu Tanaka

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2012; US$ 109.00

    This book is a collection of lecture notes from the Symposium on Quantum Computing, Thermodynamics, and Statistical Physics, held at Kinki University in March 2012. Quantum information theory has a deep connection with statistical physics and thermodynamics. This volume introduces some of the topics on interface among the mentioned fields. Subjects... more...
