Classes of computation[edit]

I propose to remove this section. What do you think?--Powo 15:55, 16 December 2006 (UTC)


It's OK but it's really just TYPES OF COMPUTERS/COMPUTING Graham Cooper BInfTech — Preceding unsigned comment added by 120.17.94.76 (talk) 22:53, 14 June 2011 (UTC)

Other computations[edit]

I have improved (I hope) the physical and mathematical descriptions of computations. Should there be another section? Like computations performed by humans?...--Powo 15:55, 16 December 2006 (UTC)


ATTENTION PLEASE! Can someone upload the picture at http://www.flickr.com/photos/29237020@N05/5215859771/ it is a new MOLECULAR MODEL OF COMPUTATION. It has been verified by sci.math. It uses HALF the fetch cycle of a Turing Machine and is directly equivalent to a Turing Machine. Graham Cooper BInfTech

History[edit]

Looks off base. How about deleting the section? (I know it's good to bbold, but nevertheless) 212.188.109.98 (talk) 13:38, 27 June 2009 (UTC)

Comparision to Calculation[edit]

I'm not convinced with this section. According to the Oxford Dictionary of Mathematics the word calculate means "To work out the value of a mathematical or arithmetical procedure, or the output of an *algorithm". In the same dictionary computation means "A calculation" and definition under compute is simply "= CALCULATE". — Preceding unsigned comment added by Yoga Conflagration (talkcontribs) 00:21, 6 September 2015 (UTC)
