U.S. scientists say they have developed a new algorithm that may advance data encryption capabilities. Researchers led by Princeton University Assistant Professor Jason Fleischer developed the so-called reversing algorithm after using a special optical device called a non-linear crystal, rather than an ordinary lens, to capture an image. Every image is made up of a collection of light waves, and a lens bends (refracts) the waves towards a detector, the scientists explained. In contrast, in...

U.S. scientists say they have rewritten algorithms to resolve delays of days or even years faced by researchers designing and simulating molecules. The time delay problem is caused by the amount of time a computer needs to run complex quantum mathematical equations, or algorithms, used during the development of more effective drugs, catalysts for fuel cells and other molecular-based materials and applications. Stanford University Professor Todd Martinez and graduate student Ivan Ufimtsev say...

A U.S.-led team of physicists says it has created the first rudimentary, solid-state quantum processor, moving science closer to building a quantum computer. Yale University scientists said they also used the two-qubit superconducting chip to successfully run elementary algorithms, such as a simple search, demonstrating quantum information processing with a solid-state device for the first time. Our processor can perform only a few very simple quantum tasks, which have been demonstrated...

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...

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...
