Algorithms and Data Structures in VLSI Design
by Christoph Meinel, Thorsten Theobald
Publisher: Springer 1998
Number of pages: 279
One of the main problems in chip design is the huge number of possible combinations of individual chip elements, leading to a combinatorial explosion as chips become more complex. New key results in theoretical computer science and in the design of data structures and efficient algorithms, can be applied fruitfully here. The application of ordered binary decision diagrams (OBDDs) has led to dramatic performance improvements in many computer-aided design projects. This textbook provides an introduction to the foundations of this interdisciplinary research area with an emphasis on applications in computer-aided circuit design and formal verification.

This book is an introduction, a survey, a history, and an evaluation of capability- and object-based computer systems. It is still the most thorough survey and description of early capability-based and object-based hardware and software systems.

This purpose of this monograph is to break the abstract understanding of a computer, and to explain a computer's behavior in completely in mechanistic terms. It will deal specifically with the Central Processing Unit (CPU) of the computer.

The purpose of this book is to teach new programmers and scientists about the basics of High Performance Computing. This book is for learners with a basic understanding of modern computer architecture, not advanced degrees in computer engineering.

This book explores the behavior of semiconductor devices, to show the relation between the device material parameters, and the resulting electrical characteristics. The text provides the link between the physics and the design of electronic circuits.
