Latest Theoretical computer science Stories
Scientists at The Scripps Research Institute in California and the Technion–Israel Institute of Technology have developed a “biological computer” made entirely from biomolecules that is capable of deciphering images encrypted on DNA chips.
A report published this week indicates that a new, secure, high-speed computing technology based on quantum physics is compatible with “cloud computing” and could eventually revolutionize the world of computers as we currently understand it.
During the month of November, 258 schools across Indiana competed in the 2nd Annual Hoosier Math Cup, a contest encouraging kids to practice their math skills and have fun while creating a stronger
The fundamental resource that drives a quantum computer is entanglement—the connection between two distant particles which Einstein famously called 'spooky action at a distance'.
Researchers at MIT have devised an algorithm that predicts when an oncoming car is likely to run a red light.
A discovery by physicists at UC Santa Barbara may earn silicon carbide –– a semiconductor commonly used by the electronics industry –– a role at the center of a new generation of information technologies designed to exploit quantum physics for tasks such as ultrafast computing and nanoscale sensing.
An advanced material that could help bring about next-generation "spintronic" computers has revealed one of its fundamental secrets to a team of scientists from Argonne National Laboratory (ANL) and the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST).
Scientists have successfully demonstrated that they can build some of the basic components for digital devices out of bacteria and DNA, which could pave the way for a new generation of biological computing devices.
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 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...
