**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… …53

**Approximate Bayesian computation**— (ABC) is a family of computational techniques in Bayesian statistics. These simulation techniques operate on summary data (such as population mean, or variance) to make broad inferences with less computation than might be required if all… …54

**Center for Computation and Technology**— The Center for Computation and Technology, or CCT, is an interdisciplinary research center located on the campus of Louisiana State University in Baton Rouge, LA.LSU previously housed the Center for Applied Information Technology and Learning,… …55

**Adiabatic quantum computation**— relies on the adiabatic theorem to do calculations.] First, a complex Hamiltonian is found whose ground state describes the solution to the problem of interest. Next, a system with a simple Hamiltonian is prepared and initialized to the ground… …56

**To make account**— Account Ac*count , n. [OE. acount, account, accompt, OF. acont, fr. aconter. See {Account}, v. t., {Count}, n., 1.] 1. A reckoning; computation; calculation; enumeration; a record of some reckoning; as, the Julian account of time. [1913 Webster]… …57

**Chess endgame**— In chess and chess like games, the endgame (or end game or ending) is the stage of the game when there are few pieces left on the board. The line between middlegame and endgame is often not clear, and may occur gradually or with the quick… …60

**Effect size**— In statistics, an effect size is a measure of the strength of the relationship between two variables in a statistical population, or a sample based estimate of that quantity. An effect size calculated from data is a descriptive statistic that… …
