D-Wave Quantum Computer Passes Important Computing Test
2013-05-09 17:57:32

Enid Burns for redOrbit.com — Your Universe Online Quantum computing just took a step from theory to practice with a test that took place at Amherst College in Massachusetts. An experimental quantum computer developed by D-Wave Systems was able to solve a problem 3,600 times faster than a conventional computer, the New York Times reports. Catherine McGeoch, the Beitzel Professor in Technology and Society in the computer science department at Amherst College administered the test....

Need to adopt more cost-effective and productive methods of commercializing proprietary information has driven the bioinformatics market. The United States accounts for 52.8% of global sales making it the largest market segment while data-analysis software and analytical services comprise the strongest growing segment increasing at a 20.3% CAGR through 2017. Wellesley, MA (PRWEB) May 07, 2013 The global bioinformatics market was valued at nearly $3.2 billion in 2012 and is forecast to grow...

Laser Light Yields Versatile Manipulation Of A Quantum Bit
2013-05-01 15:09:02

University of California - Santa Barbara By using light, researchers at UC Santa Barbara have manipulated the quantum state of a single atomic-sized defect in diamond —— the nitrogen-vacancy center —— in a method that not only allows for more unified control than conventional processes, but is more versatile, and opens up the possibility of exploring new solid-state quantum systems. Their results are published in the latest edition of the Proceedings of the National...

Quantum Internet With Combined Optical And Electrical Technique
2013-05-01 14:54:34

University of New South Wales An Australian team led by researchers at the University of New South Wales has achieved a breakthrough in quantum science that brings the prospect of a network of ultra-powerful quantum computers - connected via a quantum internet —closer to reality. The team is the first in the world to have detected the spin, or quantum state, of a single atom using a combined optical and electrical approach. The study is a collaboration between researchers from...

To maneuver a car into a parking spot parallel to the road can be quite a challenge. It would be an easy task, of course, if only the vehicle could move sideways. As this is not possible, the sideways motion must be pieced together — sometimes elegantly, sometimes less so — in a series of forward and backward movements and turns on the steering wheel. Such a finely tuned sequence of movements also enables cats to almost always land on their feet after a free fall. Researchers at...

Rubidium Vapor Stores Visual Images
2013-04-04 19:22:16

Lee Rannals for redOrbit.com — Your Universe Online Scientists have demonstrated how they are able to store visual images within a thin vapor of rubidium atoms. Scientists at the Joint Quantum Institute (JQI) of the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) and the University of Maryland reported in the New Journal of Physics about how they used the cloud of atoms as an optical memory device. The team believes their work could be helpful in creating memory for quantum...

Quantum Computers Are In Lockheed's Future
2013-03-24 06:27:59

redOrbit Staff & Wire Reports - Your Universe Online A US-based aerospace and defense developer is looking to become the first company in the world to use quantum computing technology as part of its commercial business ventures. According to Quentin Hardy of the New York Times, Lockheed Martin is planning to use one of the next generation computers, which theoretically will be able to complete complex calculations exponentially faster than modern technology, to help create and test...

Applied Mathematics
2014-01-02 10:00:11

Applied mathematics is a branch of mathematics that focuses on mathematical methods that are usually used in science, engineering, business, and industry. Therefore, “applied mathematics” is a mathematical science with specialized knowledge. The term “applied mathematics” also explains the professional specialty in which mathematicians work on practical problems; as a profession focused on practical problems, applied mathematics focuses on the formulation and study of mathematical...

Algorithm
2013-12-16 10:46:30

In mathematics and computer science, an algorithm is a step-by-step procedure for calculations. Algorithms are used for calculations, automated reasoning, and data processing. An algorithm is an effective technique expressed as a finite list of well-defined instructions for calculating a function. Starting from an initial state and an initial input, the instructions describe a computation that, when executed, proceeds through a finite number of well-defined successive states and eventually...

Thorvald Nicolai Thiele was born on December 24, 1838 and died on September 26, 1910. He was a famous mathematician, astronomer and statistician. He is best known for the interpolation and three body problem. He was the first to hypothesize Brownian motion which was derived from his study of cumulants. He founded the Hfnia Insurance Company and acted as their Mathematical Director. He also led the way for the organization of the Danish Society of Actuaries.
