Latest Theoretical computer science Stories
The promise of ultrafast quantum computing has moved a step closer to reality with a technique to create rewritable computer chips using a beam of light.
Most people don't think twice about how Internet search engines work.
Spintronic device uses thin-film organic semiconductor
The quantum computer is a futuristic machine that could operate at speeds even more mind-boggling than the world’s fastest super-computers.
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.
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 the age of high-speed computing, the photon is king.
Physicists at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) have built a quantum simulator that can engineer interactions among hundreds of quantum bits (qubits)—10 times more than previous devices.
As computer scientists this year celebrate the 100th anniversary of the birth of the mathematical genius Alan Turing, who set out the basis for digital computing in the 1930s to anticipate the electronic age, they still quest after a machine as adaptable and intelligent as the human brain.
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...

The journal welcomes original papers in all areas of theoretical computer science and computational applications of information theory. The journal welcomes all articles pertaining to the following...
The Journal of Automata, Languages and Combinatorics is a peer-reviewed scientific journal established in 1965 as the Journal of Information Processing and Cybernetics (Elektronische Informationsverarbeitung und Kybernetik). It obtained its current title in 1996 with volume numbering reset to 1. As of May 2012, the editor-in-chief is Jurgen Dassow (Otto-von-Guericke-Universität Magdeburg). The main focus of this journal is on a subfield of theoretical computer science, particularly...
The Journal of the Association for Computing Machinery (JACM) is the official journal of the Association for Computing Machinery (ACM). It was established in 1954 and is published bi monthly by the ACM. As of May 2012, the editor-in-chief is Victor Vianu (University of California, San Diego). It is peer-reviewed and covers computer science and science in general, especially theoretical aspects. The scope of the journal is based on areas covered by the Editorial Board, and these areas are...
Formal Aspects of Computing (FAC) is a peer-reviewed scientific journal published by Springer Science+Business Media. It covers the area of formal methods and associated topics in computer science. The journal is associated with BCS-FACS (The British Computer Society Formal Aspects of Computing Science Specialist Group). FAC's editors-in-chief are Jim Woodcock and Cliff Jones. The main goal of the journal is to promote growth of computing science, to show its relation to practice and to...
