USC scientists demonstrate that quantum computing could speed up the way web page ranks are calculated on the ever-expanding Internet Most people don't think twice about how Internet search engines work. You type in a word or phrase, hit enter, and poof — a list of web pages pops up, organized by relevance. Behind the scenes, a lot of math goes into figuring out exactly what qualifies as most relevant web page for your search. Google, for example, uses a page ranking algorithm...

Researchers from North Carolina State University have developed a technique to efficiently divide the bandwidth of the wireless spectrum in multi-hop wireless networks to improve operation and provide all users in the network with the best possible performance. “Our objective is to maximize throughput while ensuring that all users get similar ℠quality of experience´ from the wireless system, meaning that users get similar levels of satisfaction from the performance they...

In its early years, information theory – which grew out of a landmark 1948 paper by MIT alumnus and future professor Claude Shannon – was dominated by research on error-correcting codes: How do you encode information so as to guarantee its faithful transmission, even in the presence of the corrupting influences engineers call "noise"? Recently, one of the most intriguing developments in information theory has been a different kind of coding, called network coding, in which the...

Expert Predicts Quantum Computing Technology Could Be Near
2012-05-07 04:02:49

A prominent theoretical physicist and the co-author of a book on quantum mechanics believes that research in the field of quantum computing is rapidly progressing, and that the technology is inching ever closer to becoming a reality. In a column written for the Guardian on Saturday, Jeff Forshaw, co-author of the 2011 book 'The Quantum Universe: Everything That Can Happen Does Happen' and a professor at the University of Manchester, said, "Quantum simulations have, in the past year, really...

Quintel Partners with Tier 1 US Operator to Increase Pan Handle Network Capacity in Advance of Spring Break Rochester, New York (PRWEB) May 04, 2012 Quintel®, the leading innovator of highly efficient antennas for wireless networks, has just completed the deployment of its SVP solution for a Tier 1 US operator. This project was triggered by the need for increasing 3G capacity without carving additional spectrum from 2G. In response to increasing penetration of smart phones and...

Theoretical Physicist Michio Kaku: The End Is Near For Moore’s Law
2012-05-01 09:03:39

Brett Smith for Redorbit.com The days of Moore´s Law, which says computer processing capability doubles every 18 months, could be coming to a close according to theoretical physicist Michio Kaku. In a video produced for BigThink.com, Kaku said the smaller and smaller silicon chips that companies are producing might soon reach their processing limits. Once a chip´s layer of silicon reaches the size of about 5 atoms across it will begin to suffer from two particular...

Open Systems & Information Dynamics
2012-05-17 15:20:56

Open Systems & Information Dynamics (OSID) is journal published by World Scientific. The aim of the Journal is to promote interdisciplinary research in mathematics, physics, engineering and life sciences centered around the issues of broadly understood information processing, storage and transmission, in both quantum and classical settings. Our special interest lies in the information-theoretic approach to phenomena dealing with dynamics and thermodynamics, control, communication,...
