Silicon Valley may very soon be a misnomer. Instead of a new microprocessor, the transistors (tiny electronic switches performing computations) are made with carbon nanotubes, rather than silicon. By devising techniques to overcome the nanoscale defects that often threaten individual nanotube transistors (SN: 7/19/17), researchers have produced the first computer chip that uses thousands of these switches to run programs. The prototype, reported in the Aug. 29 Nature, is not yet as fast or as small as popular silicon…

Have you ever wondered how data is stored in the computer’s memory? It’s not very smart to just “throw” data into the memory without having a proper structure of data.

To provide this, we use Data Structures. Every programming language provides fundamental data structures like: Integer…
