Can a Computer be “Pushed” to Perform Faster-Than-Light?
Volkmar Putz and Karl Svozil

We propose to “boost” the speed of communication and computation by immersing the computing environment into a medium whose index of refraction is smaller than one, thereby trespassing the speed-of-light barrier.

Keywords: Optical computation, index of refraction, medium computation, radiative corrections to signalling, quantum field theory
