Three very large, independent phenomena, i.e. the enormous growth of the semiconductor industry, the commoditization of the computer industry and the emergence of a huge software industry have created the economic framework that has held Moore's Law in place for so long. Moore's Law has become an economic law expressing the rate at which each product generation lasts long enough to be (marginally) profitable for the systems vendors, and yet provides new product introductions to customers at a… 
Moore's Law
Moore suggested an exponential growth of the number of transistors in integrated electronic circuits. In this paper, Moore's law is derived from a preferential growth model of successive production
The main trend driving towards increased performance and reduced costs, namely smaller transistor size, also tends to reduce power use, which explains why the industry has been able to improve computational performance and electrical efficiency at similar rates.
Implications of Historical Trends in the Electrical Efficiency of Computing
The electrical efficiency of computation has doubled roughly every year and a half for more than six decades, a pace of change comparable to that for computer performance and electrical efficiency in
Flexibly-Bounded Rationality in Interstate Conflict
This chapter applies the theory of flexibly bounded rationality to interstate conflict. Flexibly bounded rationality is a theory that states that the bounds prescribed by Herbert Simon in his theory
Performance Analysis of JavaScript
In the last decade, web browsers have seen a remarkable increase of performance, especially in the JavaScript engines, which has over the years gone from being a slow and rather limited langua to being a quick and efficient way to browse the web.

Optimizing test time for core-based 3-d integrated circuits by a technique of bi-partitioning
This paper presents an algorithm for minimizing the post bond test time for 3D core-based SOCs under the constraints on the number of TSVs and the available TAM width.
Fabrication and Characterisation of Carbon Nanotube Array Thermal Interface Materials
The performance of electronic devices has long been limited by thermal dissipation which will result in device failure if not handled properly. The next generation of integrated circuit (IC) devices
