**Path computation element**— Routing is the process of finding a suitable route for conveying data between a source and one or a set of destination. Routing can be subject to a set of constraints, like QoS, policy, or price. Constraint based path computation is a strategic… …72

**Physics of computation**— The study of the physics of computation relates to understanding the fundamental physical limits of computers. This field has led to the investigation of how thermodynamics limits information processing, the understanding of chaos and dynamical… …73

**Parallel computation thesis**— In computational complexity theory, the parallel computation thesis is a hypothesis which states that the time used by a (reasonable) parallel machine is polynomially related to the space used by a sequential machine. The parallel computation… …74

**Secure two-party computation**— (2PC) is sub problem of secure multi party computation (MPC) that has received special attention by researchers because of its close relation to many cryptographic tasks. It is concerned with the question: Can two party computation be achieved… …75

**Secure computation**— is an important concept in the field of cryptography and is closely related to the idea of zero knowledgeness. It refers to computational systems in which multiple parties wish to jointly compute some value based on individually held secret bits… …76

**Network: Computation In Neural Systems**—   …77

**Limits to computation**— There are several physical and practical limits to the amount of computation or data storage that can be performed with a given amount of mass, volume, or energy:* The Bekenstein bound limits the amount of information that can be stored within a… …78

**Symbolic computation**— Symbolic computation, algebraic computation, or, less commonly, symbolic manipulation, symbolic processing, symbolic mathematics, or symbolic algebra, relates to the use of machines, such as computers, to manipulate mathematical equations and… …79

**Research Institute for Symbolic Computation**— Das Research Institute for Symbolic Computation, kurz RISC (Institut für Symbolisches Rechnen) ist ein Forschungsinstitut der Johannes Kepler Universität Linz. Es ist im Softwarepark Hagenberg in Hagenberg im Mühlkreis, Oberösterreich,… …80

**Real computation**— In computability theory, the theory of real computation deals with hypothetical computing machines using infinite precision real numbers. They are given this name because they operate on the set of real numbers. Within this theory, it is possible …
