Description & Coverage
Description:

Nanotechnology and molecular computation are two of the fastest advancing areas in recent years. Gaining attention over the past few decades, these fields are steadily becoming cornerstones of our developing culture in the 21st century.

Theoretical and Technological Advancements in Nanotechnology and Molecular Computation: Interdisciplinary Gains compiles research in areas where nanoscience and computer science meet. This book explores current and future trends that discus areas such as, cellular nanocomputers, DNA self-assembly, and the architectural design of a “nano-brain.” The authors of each chapter have provided in-depth insight into the current state of research in nanotechnology and molecular computation as well as identified successful approaches, tools and methodologies in their research.

Coverage:

The many academic areas covered in this publication include, but are not limited to:

  • Algorithmic assembly
  • Applications of nanotechnology
  • Autonomous molecular computation
  • Chemical computing
  • Intelligent materials
  • Molecular computation
  • Nanoassembly
  • Nanorobotics
  • Organic computation
  • Programmable matter
  • Quantum computation
  • Self-Assembly
Reviews & Statements

This volume collects revised or original articles from the inaugural year (2009) of the International Journal of Nanotechnology and Molecular Computation, which aims to publish high-quality, state-of-the-art research in all areas of nanotechnology and molecular computation. Nevertheless IJNMC has a unique focus, which differs from other nanotechnology journals, because it seeks to publish work in the fruitful area where nanoscience and computer science meet.

– Bruce MacLennan, University of Tennessee - Knoxville, USA

This collection of nineteen articles on computation and nanotechnology presents current research on the nexus of nanoscience and emerging computer technologies drawn from the pages of the 2009 editions of the International Journal of Nanotechnology and Molecular Computation. Topics discussed include DNA codes for computing and self assembly, cellular nano-computers, single-electron devices, post-CMOS and SET systems, chemical logic gates, chemical programming and network automata for nanoelectronics. ...

Editor/Author Biographies
Bruce J. MacLennan has a BS in mathematics (with honors, 1972) from Florida State University, and an MS (1974) and PhD (1975) in computer science from Purdue University. He was a Senior Software Engineer with Intel Corporation (1975–9), after which he joined the Computer Science faculty of the Naval Postgraduate School (Monterey, CA) as Assistant Professor (1979–83), Associate Professor (1983–7), and Acting Chair (1984–5). Since 1987 he has been a member of the Electrical Engineering and Computer Science faculty of the University of Tennessee, Knoxville. MacLennan’s research includes the application of molecular computing to nanostructure synthesis and control and the development of novel models of computation intended to better exploit physical processes for computation. Prof. MacLennan has more than 60 refereed journal articles and book chapters and has published two books. He has made more than 60 invited or refereed presentations.
