Noise-based Deterministic Logic and Computing: a Brief Survey
Laszlo B. Kish, Sunil P. Khatri, Sergey M. Bezrukov, Ferdinand Peper, Zoltan Gingl and Tamas Horvath
A short survey is provided about our recent explorations of the young topic of noise-based logic. After outlining the motivation behind noise-based computation schemes, we present a short summary of our ongoing efforts in the introduction, development and design of several noise-based deterministic multivalued logic schemes and elements. In particular, we describe classical, instantaneous, continuum, spike and random-telegraph-signal based schemes with applications such as circuits that emulate the brain’s functioning and string verification via a slow communication channel.
