How Thermodynamics and Quantum Mechanics Limit Electronic Computation?
In this communication new concept like the degree of assignment, the mass specific degree of assignment and a dynamic computer were introduced using concepts like second law of thermodynamics, Heisenberg’s uncertainty principle and entropy. The result formulated asserts that electronic computations are not out of the grasp of the second law of thermodynamics. Using Heisenberg’s uncertainty principle it is concluded that the total mass equivalent of the energy that is invested in signals communicating different elements of the computer cannot exceed the total mass of the system. While discussing quantum mechanical description main properties of algorithms and floating point numbers were used to provide a reasonable argument in favor of the wave interpretation of quantum mechanics as compared with other interpretations of quantum mechanics.
