Memoryless computation: New results, constructions, and extensions

  title={Memoryless computation: New results, constructions, and extensions},

  journal={Theor. Comput. Sci.},
In this paper, we are interested in memoryless computation, a modern paradigm to compute functions which generalises the famous XOR swap algorithm to exchange the contents of two variables without using a buffer. In memoryless computation, programs are only allowed to update one variable at a time. We first consider programs which do not use any memory. We study the maximum and average number of updates required to compute functions without memory. We then derive the exact number of… CONTINUE READING
