9 Thermodynamics, Information, and Entropy Whereas questions about the interplay of limitations on information and entropy for most present computer system technologies remains more theoretical than actual, in systems using molecular recognition, this is a factor that must be considered from the outset. It has already been mentioned that one reason for the present emphasis on photochemistry is due to its possibilities for (a) parallel input, (b) processing, and (c) output. How to read information in and out of molecular systems should be considered as one of the defining problems of the field.

It is self-assembly driven to completion. Positive cooperativity is a basic characteristic of molecular amplification devices, because once initiated, the subsequent steps of the assembly are facilitated. It represents a nonlinear process and confers features of an error filter; only the correct input will, in principle, lead to creating the cooperative structure. In addition, the dynamic features of supramolecular binding make these systems able to undergo annealing and self-repair defects. The ability to "explore" the available energy surface more freely than is possible with covalent bonding allows such systems to exchange incorrect components for correct ones, thus allowing a form of selfmaintenance and error correction.
