This booklet is dedicated to Slime mildew Physarum polycephalum, that is a huge unmarried mobilephone able for dispensed sensing, concurrent details processing, parallel computation and decentralized actuation. the convenience of culturing and experimenting with Physarum makes this slime mold a terrific substrate for real-world implementations of unconventional sensing and computing devices
The publication is a treatise of theoretical and experimental laboratory stories on sensing and computing houses of slime mildew, and at the improvement of mathematical and logical theories of Physarum habit.
It is proven find out how to make logical gates and circuits, digital units (memristors, diodes, transistors, wires, chemical and tactile sensors) with the slime mold. The e-book demonstrates how you can adjust houses of Physarum computing circuits with useful nano-particles and polymers, to interface the slime mildew with field-programmable arrays, and to exploit Physarum as a controller of microbial gas cells.
A detailed multi-agent version of slime is proven to serve good as a software program slime mildew able for fixing difficulties of computational geometry and graph optimization. The multiagent version is complemented through mobile automata types with parallel accelerations. awarded mathematical types encouraged via Physarum comprise non-quantum implementation of Shor's factorization, structural studying, computation of shortest course tree on dynamic graphs, provide chain community layout, p-adic computing and syllogistic reasoning.
The ebook is a special composition of vivid and lavishly illustrated essays with the intention to motivate scientists, engineers and artists to use usual phenomena in designs of destiny and emergent computing and sensing units. it's a 'bible' of experimental computing with spatially prolonged dwelling substrates, it spanstopics from biology of slime mildew, to bio-sensing, to unconventional computing units and robotics, non-classical logics and track and arts.
