Physicists in France may be leading the way to a new generation of IT wizardry after revealing on Sunday they had used ultra-fast lasers that could accelerate storage and retrieval of data on hard discs by up to 100,000 times, AFP reported. The latest achievement expands on Nobel physics prize winning research by Albert Fert of France and Peter Gruenberg of Germany, who ushered in a revolution in miniaturized storage in the 1990s. The duo won a Nobel in 2007 after they discovered that tiny...

Technique could provide an easier route to 'spintronic' circuits In the first demonstration of its kind, researchers at the University of British Columbia have controlled the spin of electrons using a ballistic technique--bouncing electrons through a microscopic channel of precisely constructed, two-dimensional layer of semiconductor. It's the first time the intrinsic properties of a semiconductor"”not external electric or magnetic fields"“have been used to achieve the effect. The...

Highlighting another challenge to the development of quantum computers, theorists at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) have shown* that a type of software operation, proposed as a solution to fundamental problems with the computers' hardware, will not function as some designers had hoped. Quantum computers"”if they can ever be realized"”will employ effects associated with atomic physics to solve otherwise intractable problems. But the NIST team has proved...

A South Carolina computer scientist says he has come up with an infallible system for solving sudoku puzzles. J.F. Crook, a computer scientist at Winthrop University, said in the latest Notices of the American Mathematical Society that he has come up with the first mathematically guaranteed system for solving the popular numbers puzzle, USA Today reported Monday. Sudoku generally involves a grid of 81 squares, some of which contain numbers 1-9. The object is to fill in the remaining boxes...

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...
