    As IC process geometries scale down to the nanometer territory, industry faces severe challenges of manufacturing limitations. To guarantee high yield and reliability, routing for manufacturability and reliability has played a pivotal role in resolution and thus yield enhancement for the imperfect manufacturing process. In this article, we introduce major routing challenges arising from nanometer ... View full abstract»

    Living organisms learn by acting on their environment, observing the resulting reward stimulus, and adjusting their actions accordingly to improve the reward. This action-based or reinforcement learning can capture notions of optimal behavior occurring in natural systems. We describe mathematical formulations for reinforcement learning and a practical implementation method known as adaptive dynami... View full abstract»
