In this talk, we will discuss alternative approaches to computing. Instead of basing a computer on the manipulation of bits, represented by electronic switches, we will explore the possibility of harnessing spintronic dynamical systems for computation. Specifically, we will consider physical processes and dynamical systems based on coupled magnetic dots, on coupled spin-torque oscillators, and on spin waves. In such dynamical systems, the computational process more closely exploits the underlying physics, which offers the promise of lower power dissipation.
