    In this prolog, we have offered an inkling of some of the driving issues in the quest for high data rates in optical communications lines. The tutorial covers the vast area of R&D in flexible fiber optic networking, and it will most certainly encourage generation of new ideas for further development during the coming decades.

    Rigid fixed-grid wavelength division multiplexing (WDM) optical networks can no longer keep up with the emerging bandwidth-hungry and highly dynamic services in an efficient manner. As the available spectrum in optical fibers becomes occupied and is approaching fundamental limits, the research community has focused on seeking more advanced optical transmission and networking solutions that utilize...

    When Irish mathematician William Hamilton first described the number system called quaternions in 1843, it was applied to the field of mechanics only. The quaternion, the quotient of two directed lines or vectors in 3-D space, was for Hamilton a fundamental structural component of the universe. Hamilton inspired Maxwell to write his famous electromagnetic equations in terms of quaternions; however... View full abstract»

    In this paper, we explicate the suggested benefits of Clifford's geometric algebra (GA) when applied to the field of electrical engineering. Engineers are always interested in keeping formulas as simple or compact as possible, and we illustrate that geometric algebra does provide such a simplified representation in many cases. We also demonstrate an additional structural check provided by GA for f... View full abstract»

    In the last decade, progress has been made in the construction of simple neuromorphic cognitive systems. These types of circuits are described in the paper, and they are compared to existing solutions. The limitations of such circuits are described, as well as design techniques for constructing larger brain-like systems. The technological building blocks are based on dynamic synapse circuits, hard... View full abstract»

    Several analog and digital brain-inspired electronic systems have been recently proposed as dedicated solutions for fast simulations of spiking neural networks. While these architectures are useful for exploring the computational properties of large-scale models of the nervous system, the challenge of building low-power compact physical artifacts that can behave intelligently in the real world and...

    In 1912, the Swedish engineer Nils Gustaf Dalén was awarded the Nobel Prize in Physics for his invention of automatic regulators for use in conjunction with gas accumulators for illuminating lighthouses and buoys. The history of his inventiveness and scientific achievements has been unjustly ignored, historically speaking, being closely intertwined with that of AGA, the company that he hel...
