    Special Issue Description

    Dear Collegues,

    It is possible to imagine computers as machines that convert free energy into waste heat and computational labor.
    To keep volatile storage devices in a bistable condition, synchronize and standardize signals, and increase switching speed, existing electronic computers use energy that is far beyond the mean thermal energy kT.
    However, new simulations created by Fredkin and Toffoli demonstrate that a computer may theoretically operate at a fixed speed with no energy loss and no inaccuracy. In these models, a simple assembly of straightforward but idealized mechanical components creates a ballistic trajectory isomorphic with the desired computation, a trajectory that was therefore not precisely anticipated by the computer's creator.
    Ballistic models are unreliable in a classical or semiclassical situation because they demand that the components be constructed with absolute accuracy and shielded from thermal noise, which would eventually randomly select the trajectory and create inaccuracies. This undesirable equipartition of the kinetic energy might be avoided by taking advantage of quantum phenomena.

    Manuscript Submission information

    Manuscripts should be submitted online by registering and logging in to this link. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed.
    Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent on email address:[email protected] for announcement on this website.
    Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page.
