Moore's Law

Susannah Domaille, Jacob Hughes, Samantha Metters, and James Sharwin

Abstract


Moore’s law originally was the observation that the number of transistors on integrated circuits doubles roughly every 18 months. However, many other areas of technology progress with a similar exponential growth. For instance, can one find an analogous law in the context of super-computing? The aim of this paper is to answer this question by showing how a variant of Moore’s law emerges from an analysis of the “Top 500” lists of super computers from 1993 to 2013.
