Collective electrodynamics : quantum foundations of electromagnetism by Carver Mead( )

12 editions published between 2000 and 2002 in English and held by 1,285 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this book Carver Mead offers a radically new approach to the standard problems of electromagnetic theory. Motivated by the belief that the goal of scientific research should be the simplification and unification of knowledge, he describes a new way of doing electrodynamics--collective electrodynamics--that does not rely on Maxwell's equations, but rather uses the quantum nature of matter as its sole basis. Collective electrodynamics is a way of looking at how electrons interact, based on experiments that tell us about the electrons directly. (As Mead points out, Maxwell had no access to these experiments.) The results Mead derives for standard electromagnetic problems are identical to those found in any text. Collective electrodynamics reveals, however, that quantities that we usually think of as being very different are, in fact, the same--that electromagnetic phenomena are simple and direct manifestations of quantum phenomena. Mead views his approach as a first step toward reformulating quantum concepts in a clear and comprehensible manner. The book is divided into five sections: magnetic interaction of steady currents, propagating waves, electromagnetic energy, radiation in free space, and electromagnetic interaction of atoms. In an engaging preface, Mead tells how his approach to electromagnetic theory was inspired by his interaction with Richard Feynman

Analog VLSI implementation of neural systems by Carver Mead( Book )

17 editions published in 1989 in English and held by 286 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume contains the proceedings of a workshop on Analog Integrated Neural Systems held May 8, 1989, in connection with the International Symposium on Circuits and Systems. The presentations were chosen to encompass the entire range of topics currently under study in this exciting new discipline. Stringent acceptance requirements were placed on contributions: (1) each description was required to include detailed characterization of a working chip, and (2) each design was not to have been published previously. In several cases, the status of the project was not known until a few weeks before the meeting date. As a result, some of the most recent innovative work in the field was presented. Because this discipline is evolving rapidly, each project is very much a work in progress. Authors were asked to devote considerable attention to the shortcomings of their designs, as well as to the notable successes they achieved. In this way, other workers can now avoid stumbling into the same traps, and evolution can proceed more rapidly (and less painfully). The chapters in this volume are presented in the same order as the corresponding presentations at the workshop. The first two chapters are concerned with fmding solutions to complex optimization problems under a predefmed set of constraints. The first chapter reports what is, to the best of our knowledge, the first neural-chip design. In each case, the physics of the underlying electronic medium is used to represent a cost function in a natural way, using only nearest-neighbor connectivity
Basic limitations in microcircuit fabrication technology by Ivan Edward Sutherland( Book )

6 editions published between 1975 and 1976 in English and held by 72 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The report discusses some high-leverage research areas in microcircuit fabrication, not now receiving government or private support, where relatively small, advanced research efforts may have substantial payoff. Based on the fact that microcircuit fabrication has reached or almost reached limitations in both size and precision, the study focuses on a number of areas where progress can be made, identifying those adequately covered by existing programs and highlighting those where relatively little work is being done. The authors recommend four important research efforts aimed at: (1) making small devices; (2) measuring the limits of dimensional stability of silicon substrates and mask materials; (3) predicting the optimum feature size, die size, and wafer size, given the constraints of the newly evolving technology; (4) understanding the system design implications of very-large-scale integrated circuits. 'The potential for future capability is truly impressive, ' say the authors, who believe that the integrated circuit revolution has run only half its course and that a change in microcircuit complexity of four more orders of magnitude is highly probable

How things really work : two inventors on innovation by Gordon Bell( Visual )

5 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 49 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The essence of innovation is revealed through discussions on how new products come into being, what marketing should know, how perseverance pays and what governs the evolution of technology
Inside information : the brain and how it works( Visual )

1 edition published in 1998 in English and held by 33 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This program explains research on the brain's processes: how individual parts of the brain work, how the brain uses pattern recognition rather than logic to interpret reality, which experiments with computer analogs have been successful and which have failed, and why. The program also provides interviews with some of the foremost researchers in the field, including neuroscientist John Hopfield, vision scientist V.S. Ramachandran, and physicist Carver Mead, who has a computer chip that can "see." (58 minutes)

A Notation for Designing Restoring Logic Circuitry in CMOS by Martin Rem( Book )

3 editions published in 1981 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

As the underlying silicon fabrication technology has become capable of producing chips with transistor counts in excess of 1,000,000, problems associated with correct design are assuming ever greater importance. Exhaustive checking of mask artwork for errors becomes prohibitive. Technologies and design styles which obviate large classes of potential errors are enormously preferable to those that do not. A modular, hierarchical design style can, with proper restriction, confine many types of checks to one level of the hierarchy within each module. A set of such restrictions is given in this paper, together with a mechanism for their enforcement. These restrictions capture a substantial fraction of the design style given in 11]. As feature sizes are scaled below one micron, ratio logic processes like nMOS and I2L become progressively less attractive. Straightforward scaling to smaller sizes results in a linear increase in current per unit chip area. Technological tricks such as high resistivity polysilicon pullup devices or very small injector current can be used to decrease current drain, but the resulting devices become increasingly vulnerable to "soft error problems from alpha particles, etc. Fully restored "static" logic using a complementary process is the natural choice for systems with submicron components. Present bulk CMOS processes have a number of very ugly analog rules associated with the 4-layer nature of the process. As a result, the designer must be aware of details of the technology to an alarming degree. CMOS on an insulating substrate is, on the other hand, a conceptually clean process: it requires no analog rules whatsoever if proper timing conventions are observed. There are recent signs that it may become reliably producible as well

Cochlear hydrodynamics demystified by Richard F Lyon( Book )

2 editions published in 1988 in Undetermined and English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Abstract: "Wave propagation in the mammalian cochlea (inner ear) is modeled as a unidirectional cascade of simple filters. The transfer functions of the low-order filter stages are completely determined by the wave-number vs. frequency solutions to the dispersion relations that describe the cochlea, which are in turn derived from two-dimensional approximations to the fluid mechanics. Active undamping effects of the outer hair cells are easily included in the analysis and modeling, so that the results can be directly applied in the design of active adaptive cochlear models."
