This site is supported by donations to The OEIS Foundation.

 Please make a donation to keep the OEIS running. We are now in our 55th year. In the past year we added 12000 new sequences and reached 8000 citations (which often say "discovered thanks to the OEIS"). We need to raise money to hire someone to manage submissions, which would reduce the load on our editors and speed up editing. Other ways to donate

%N Decimal expansion of the maximum performance (operations per second) of an "ultimate laptop".

%C The "ultimate laptop" is a hypothetical computer formed by compressing a kilogram of matter into a black hole the size of its Schwarzschild radius.

%C Every physical system holds binary digits in the states of its particles. "Computation" makes changes in those states. A system with average energy E can perform a maximum of 2 * E / (Pi * A254181) logical operations per second. The "ultimate laptop" turns all of its matter into energy.

%C Bremermann's limit gives an even tighter bound of 1.35639... * 10^50 operations per second if the laptop is self-contained. - _Charles R Greathouse IV_, Apr 18 2016
