Boolean Logic Gate Design Principles in Unconventional Computers:
An NMR Case Study
Matthias Bechmann, Angelika Sebald and Susan Stepney
We present a general method for analysing novel computational substrates to determine which of their parameters can be manipulated to exhibit the complete set of 2-input boolean logical operations. We demonstrate this approach with an NMR-based case study, showing which NMR parameters can be used to perform boolean logic.
Keywords: NMR, boolean logic, canalising functions, universal gates, spin.
