It was shown recently [Murali et al., Phys. Rev. Lett. 102, 104101 (2009)] that when one presents two square waves as input to a two-state system, the response of the system can produce a logical output (NOR/OR) with a probability controlled by the interplay between the system noise and the nonlinearity (that characterizes the bistable dynamics). One can switch or “morph” the output into another logic operation (NAND/AND) whose probability displays analogous behavior; the switching is… Expand

Logical stochastic resonance
In a recent publication it was shown that, when one drives a two-state system with two square waves as input, the response of the system mirrors a logical output (NOR/OR). The probability ofExpand
Construction of logic gates exploiting resonance phenomena in nonlinear systems
The conventional LSR paradigm is extended to implement higher-level logic architecture or typical digital electronic structures via carefully crafted coupling schemes and to realize morphable logic gates through the Logical Coherence Resonance in excitable systems under the influence of noise.

Enhanced logical stochastic resonance under periodic forcing
It is established that in scenarios where noise level is below the minimum threshold required for logical stochastic resonance (or stochastically resonance in general), a periodic forcing can be added to obtain the desired effects. Expand
Numerical implementation of a VCSEL-based stochastic logic gate via polarization bistability.
The phenomenon of logic stochastic resonance (LSR) is demonstrated, by which the laser gives robust and reliable logic response to two logic inputs encoded in an aperiodic signal directly modulating the laser bias current. Expand

Numerical results show that reliable Set–Reset latch operation indeed exists in the chaos-driven bistable system if the intensity k of chaotic driving force is in an optimal range, and it is possible to realize chaos-assisted memory device according to LCR. Expand

It is demonstrated that the array enhanced logical stochastic resonance has a saturating effect at larger array size, and the small or medium array size is good enough for one to obtain reliable logic operation. Expand

Reliable logic circuit elements that exploit nonlinearity in the presence of a noise floor.
It is shown that when one presents two square waves as input to a two-state system, the response of the system can produce a logical output with a probability controlled by the noise intensity, which is a "logical stochastic resonance". Expand
