Although the physical systems involved (a specific initial condition for the wave equation in three dimensions and an exotic solution to Einstein's field equations, respectively) are somewhat contrived, recent years saw the emergence of the thriving school of "hypercomputation" that aspires to extend the limited examples of physical "hypercomputers" and in so doing to physically
This book will provide a thorough description of the field of hypercomputation covering all attempts at devising conceptual hypermachines and all new promising computational paradigms that may eventually lead to the construction of a hypermachine.
Quantum hypercomputation is rarely discussed in the literature (See, e.g.,
