Brings the latest advances in nanotechnology and biology tocomputing
This pioneering book demonstrates how nanotechnology can createeven faster, denser computing architectures and algorithms.Furthermore, it draws from the latest advances in biology with afocus on bio-inspired computing at the nanoscale, bringing to lightseveral new and innovative applications such as nanoscaleimplantable biomedical devices and neural networks.
Bio-Inspired and Nanoscale Integrated Computing features anexpert team of interdisciplinary authors who offer readers thebenefit of their own breakthroughs in integrated computing as wellas a thorough investigation and analyses of the literature.Carefully edited, the book begins with an introductory chapterproviding a general overview of the field. It ends with a chaptersetting forth the common themes that tie the chapters together aswell as a forecast of emerging avenues of research.
Among the important topics addressed in the book are modeling ofnano devices, quantum computing, quantum dot cellular automata,dielectrophoretic reconfigurable nano architectures, multilevel andthree-dimensional nanomagnetic recording, spin-wave architecturesand algorithms, fault-tolerant nanocomputing, molecular computing,self-assembly of supramolecular nanostructures, DNA nanotechnologyand computing, nanoscale DNA sequence matching, medicalnanorobotics, heterogeneous nanostructures for biomedicaldiagnostics, biomimetic cortical nanocircuits, bio-applications ofcarbon nanotubes, and nanoscale image processing.
Readers in electrical engineering, computer science, andcomputational biology will gain new insights into how bio-inspiredand nanoscale devices can be used to design the next generation ofenhanced integrated circuits.
