    The end of Moore's law may be the best thing that has happened in computing since the beginning of Moore's law. Confronting the end of an epoch should enable a new era of creativity by encouraging computer scientists to invent new biologically inspired paradigms, implemented on emerging architectures, with hybrid circuits and systems that combine the best of scaled silicon CMOS with new devices, p...

    As transistors shrink to nanoscale dimensions, trapped electrons--blocking "lanes" of electron traffic--are making it difficult for digital computers to work. In stark contrast, the brain works fine with single-lane nanoscale devices that are intermittently blocked (ion channels). Conjecturing that it achieves error-tolerance by combining analog dendritic computation with digital axonal communicat... View full abstract»

    Moore's law in the semiconductor industry came to mean regular, predictable introductions of new manufacturing technology that enabled denser electronics. Adoption of new manufacturing technology, and its effect on silicon wafer-processing costs, determined how rapidly transistor manufacturing costs declined. In recent years, both cost decline rates and other economically valuable technical benefi... View full abstract»

    The insights contained in Gordon Moore's now famous 1965 and 1975 papers have broadly guided the development of semiconductor electronics for over 50 years. However, the field-effect transistor is approaching some physical limits to further miniaturization, and the associated rising costs and reduced return on investment appear to be slowing the pace of development. Far from signaling an end to pr... View full abstract»

    The combination of Moore's law and Dennard's scaling laws constituted the fundamental guidelines that provided the semiconductor industry with the foundation of a technically and economically viable roadmap until the end of the previous century. During this time, the transistor evolved from bipolar to PMOS to NMOS to CMOS. However, by the mid-1990s it was clear that fundamental physical limits of ... View full abstract»

    In the past few years, researchers have introduced several sorting algorithms to enhance time complexity, space complexity, and stability. A double hashing methodology first collects statistics about element distribution and then maps between elements of the array and indexes based on the knowledge collected during the first hashing.

    While some physics educators have included computing in courses or have developed specialized courses for over 50 years, computational physics education has only slowly made inroads into the broader physics education community. Even now, when computation is arguably more important than ever in physics research and applications, it's rare that a physics department offers more than a single course i... View full abstract»

    Despite the increasing demand for utilizing high-performance computing (HPC) for CSE applications, software development for HPC historically attracted little attention from the software engineering (SE) community. Paradoxically, the HPC CSE community has increasingly been adopting SE techniques and tools. Indeed, the development of CSE software for HPC differs significantly from the development of...
