In computer programming, mandelbug is a classification of an unusual software bug that is so complex that its behavior appears chaotic or there is no practical solution to fix it. An examplele of this type of bug would be a fundamental design flaw in an operating system. The mandelbug was named after Professor Benoit Mandelbrot, […]
In computer programming, schroedinbug is a classification of an unusual software bug. This type of bug is one that goes unnoticed until a programmer or other person reads the software code and discovers that the program never should have been able to work in the first place. In discovering the schroedinbug, the bug manifests and […]
In computer programming, heisenbug is a classification of an unusual software bug that disappears or alters its behavior when an attempt to isolate it is made. Due to the unpredictable nature of a heisenbug, when trying to recreate the bug or using a debugger, the error may change or even vanish on a retry. The […]
In computer programming, bohrbug is a classification of an unusual software bug that always produces a failure on retying the operation which caused the failure. The bohrbug was named after the Bohr atom because the bohrbug represents a solid and easily detectable bug that can be isolated by standard debugging techniques. Contrast with heisenbug.
- racetrack memory
The Magnetic Racetrack Memory Project is in development by IBM’s Almaden Research Center. Informally called racetrack memory (RM), it is a non-volatile memory device that offers a storage density higher than solid-state memory devices with a higher read/write performance. The design is a racetrack concept where RM memory moves magnetic bits along nanoscopic “racetracks.” Racetrack […]
