Abstract: All existing computers have a fixed constant speed.  I present a new computational paradigm in which the computer’s speed increases exponential as it solves a problem.  The theory of computer science is based around Universal Turing Machines (UTMs).  Every UTM can compute every computable function, and every modern digital computer is in essence a UTM.  The NP time complexity class is the most significant class of problems in computer science, and a tractable/efficient (polynomial) way to solve them would be of great economic and social importance.  Nondeterminist

The Research Computing Center (RCC) is a centralized service that provides high-end computing and visualization resources to researchers at the University. This presentation will discuss RCC services and provide information on how to get computing and storage resources on RCC’s computing infrastructure.
