Maxwells Demon and the Thermodynamics of Computers

Leonhard Printz

Vejleder: Alberto Imparato

Mandag den 14. april kl. 14.15
Fysisk Auditorium

Historically the field of thermodynamics came into existence during the discussion of the workings of heat engines and generated many interesting paradoxes for physicists. It turns out that the solutions to these puzzles allows us to derive a lower bound on the energy an irreversible computer will use.
