Abstract: 

Introduction to Chaos: This introduction is a very elementary introduction to the science of chaos and gives a comprehensive, non-mathematical overview of the subject. This is an excellent starting point for the understanding of the principles of dynamical, deterministic, unpredictable systems. (Dr. Tariq Abdullah). Alse See; http://www.khwarzimic.org/activities/chaos-det.html Chaos, Complexity and Fractals: some Applications of Non-Linear Science to Technology: Presentation | Muhammad Abubakr | 27 Sep 1999 | Centre for Solid State Physics. Science of Chaos: Video Presentation | Dr. Tariq Abdullah, our expert on chaos was there to field the questions from the viewers | 13 Oct 1999 | Children Library Complex, Lahore. This wide-screen presentation was primarily meant as a stimulant and interest-arouser. The duration of the movie was approximately 50 minutes. The fascination lay in a live display of many chaotic ensembles and interviews with the pioneers such as Mandelbrot, Lorenz, Bradley, Feiganbaum etc.

Abstract: 

Integrated circuit industry has demonstrated phenomenal growth in transistor density and performance during the last three decades. Ever since the introduction of 1st SRAM, DRAM and microprocessor products (all fabricated by Intel Corporation ~1970), the number of transistors have roughly doubled every 2 years and microprocessor clock frequency has increased from less than 5 MHz to over 500 MHz. Moreover, this has been achieved by keeping the overall system power dissipation at acceptably low levels. These improvements have primarily been driven by improvements in process and device technology with feature size reducing to <0.25um (1/400th of thickness of human hair) on memory and microprocessor products currently available in the market. This talk will be divided into two parts. The first section will present the results from Intel's next generation microprocessor process technology generation. This technology demonstrates the highest transistor performance (i.e. highest drive current for a given off-state leakage) reported to date in literature. Moreover, this high performance has been demonstrated at ultra-low energies, with energy-delay product appreciably below the published industry trends. An SRAM product with more than 100 million transistors has been developed as a yield learning vehicle with frequency exceeding 1GHz. The 2nd part of the talk will focus on describing key bottlenecks which could limit further technology scaling during the next two decades. Alternate material options, which could delay the onset of some of the limitations, will be presented.
