Quantum Logic and Classical Connectivity

Pp. 69-86 (18)

Pierre Lorrentz


The aim and objectives of this chapter is to introduce the principles and fundamental concepts of elements which are used as building block of new and emerging neural systems. The first section introduces quantum logic and quantum algebra. Only those concepts relevant to ANNs’ gates production are introduced, and as such the mathematics involved has been kept to a minimum. The second section introduce a new non-volatile memory elements; the memristance. Since these phenomena are well known prior to their formal discovery (formulation), the fundamental concepts and the phenomena forms the subject of discussion in this chapter. The chapter has striven to be self-contained and brief in order to describe and impart information relevant to understanding of the ANNs’ elements.
