Computation Areas & Phases

What will it compute?

  • Computational geometry: plane tessellation, concave and convex hull
  • Image processing: contouring, filtering, erosion, dilation
  • Graph-theoretic: proximity graphs, spanning trees, triangulations
  • Arithmetics: binary arithmetic circuits
  • Logics: universal logical circuits
  • General purpose computing: storage modification machines (Kolmogorov and Schoenhage machines)
