Introduction to the Special Issue on Reversible Computation
Robert Wille, Rolf Drechsler, Mehdi B. Tahoori
Article No.: 8

Matrix Calculus for Classical and Quantum Circuits
Alexis De Vos, Stijn De Baerdemacker
Article No.: 9
DOI: 10.1145/2669370

Quantum computation on w qubits is represented by the infinite unitary group U(2w); classical reversible computation on w bits is represented by the finite symmetric group S2w. In...

Quantifying Irreversible Information Loss in Digital Circuits
Ismo K. Hänninen, Craig S. Lent, Gregory L. Snider
Article No.: 10
DOI: 10.1145/2629523

Heat generation limits the performance of state-of-the-art integrated circuits, originating from the wasteful static CMOS operating principle. Near-term solutions like adiabatic charging for energy recovery and limiting friction-type heat sources...

Designing Garbage-Free Reversible Implementations of the Integer Cosine Transform
Alexis De Vos, Stéphane Burignat, Robert Glück, Torben Ægidius Mogensen, Holger Bock Axelsen, Michael Kirkedal Thomsen, Eva Rotenberg, Tetsuo Yokoyama
Article No.: 11
DOI: 10.1145/2629532

Discrete linear transformations are important tools in information processing. Many such transforms are injective and therefore prime candidates for a physically reversible implementation into hardware. We present here reversible integer cosine...

Garbage-Free Reversible Multipliers for Arbitrary Constants
Torben Ægidius Mogensen
Article No.: 12
DOI: 10.1145/2629515

We present a method based on Mealy machines for constructing reversible circuitry for multiplying integers by arbitrary integer constants. The circuits generate no garbage and use no ancillae. The circuits are quite compact for small constants and...

A Resource-Efficient Design for a Reversible Floating Point Adder in Quantum Computing
Trung Duc Nguyen, Rodney Van Meter
Article No.: 13
DOI: 10.1145/2629525

Reversible logic has applications in low-power computing and quantum computing. However, there are few existing designs for reversible floating-point adders and none suitable for quantum computation. In this article, we propose a...

Cofactor Sharing for Reversible Logic Synthesis
Alireza Shafaei, Mehdi Saeedi, Massoud Pedram
Article No.: 14
DOI: 10.1145/2629524

Improving circuit realization of known quantum algorithms by CAD techniques has benefits for quantum experimentalists. In this article, the problem of synthesizing a given function on a set of ancillea is addressed. The proposed approach benefits...

An Improved Reversible Circuit Synthesis Approach using Clustering of ESOP Cubes
Kamalika Datta, Gaurav Rathi, Indranil Sengupta, Hafizur Rahaman
Article No.: 15
DOI: 10.1145/2629543

The problem of reversible logic synthesis has drawn the attention of many researchers over the last two decades with growing emphasis on low-power design. Among the various synthesis approaches that have been reported, the ones based on compact...

Novel Through-Silicon-Via Inductor-Based On-Chip DC-DC Converter Designs in 3D ICs
Umamaheswara Rao Tida, Cheng Zhuo, Yiyu Shi
Article No.: 16
DOI: 10.1145/2637481

There has been a tremendous research effort in recent years to move DC-DC converters on chip for enhanced performance. However, a major limiting factor to implementing on-chip inductive DC-DC converters is the large area overhead induced by spiral...

Performance Evaluation of Congestion-Aware Routing with DVFS on a Millimeter-Wave Small-World Wireless NoC
Jacob Murray, Ryan Kim, Paul Wettin, Partha Pratim Pande, Behrooz Shirazi
Article No.: 17
DOI: 10.1145/2644816

The mm-wave small-world wireless NoC (mSWNoC) has emerged as an enabling interconnection infrastructure for designing high-bandwidth and energy-efficient multicore chips. In this mSWNoC architecture, long-range communication predominately takes...

Scalable Offline Searches in DNA Sequences
Pragyan (Sheela) Mohanty, Spyros Tragoudas
Article No.: 18
DOI: 10.1145/2660774

Searching for a particular pattern in a very large DNA database is a fundamental and essential component in computational biology. In the biological world, pattern matching is required for finding repeats in a particular DNA sequence, finding...
