1. MAS.961 How To Make Something That Makes (Almost) Anything Complexity, Self Replication and all that… jacobson@media.mit.edu

2. What governs the cost of placing atoms where we want them? What are the limits? Si Wafer with Area sufficient for 2 Billion Transistors Cost: ~\$0.50 Flash Memory Transistor Count: 2B Cost: ~\$3 Itanium Quad Tukwila Transistor Count: 2B Cost: ~\$100 NetBook Cost: ~\$200 Sand (Chips and Screen) Cost: ~\$0 Plastic Resin / Metal Ore Cost: ~\$4

3. Fabricational Complexity Where is the yield per fabricational step A G T C G C A A T N Fabricational Complexity for N-mer or M Types = Fabricational Cost for N-mer = Fabricational Complexity Per Unit Cost Complexity Per Unit Cost Complexity Per Unit Time*Energy

4. Fabricational Complexity Application: Why Are There 20 Amino Acids in Biology? (What is the right balance between Codon code redundancy and diversity?) N Blocks of Q Types Question:Given N monomeric building blocks of Q different types, what is the optimal number of different types of building blocks Q which maximizes the complexity of the ensemble of all possible constructs? The complexion for the total number of different ways to arrange N blocks of Q different types (where each type has the same number) is given by: . And the complexity is: For a given polymer length N we can ask which Q* achieves the half max for complexity such that:

Measurement Theory DNA Error Correcting Exonuclease (Ruler) Watson Crick .18 nm /sandwalk.blogspot.com/2007/12/dna-denaturation-and-renaturation-and.html http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Stem-loop.svg How Well Can N Molecules Measure Distance? Probability of Self Replication Number of Nucleotides

16. Threshold for Life Generalized Theory Measurement Theory Machine of N Blocks at Temperature T Measures the Correctness of the new added block. Energy: Energy consumption per replication (dominated by measurement just like in Szilard Maxwell’s Demon): Must Determine size (position) to within 1 atom: Heisenberg limit: lambda / number of photons 0.1 nm = 5000 * 500nm photons ~ 5 Kev per addition Number of Building Blocks: N Block machine must serve as a stable reference point to make measurement on the new added block.
