This e-book is dedicated to Slime mildew Physarum polycephalum, that's a huge unmarried phone able for dispensed sensing, concurrent info processing, parallel computation and decentralized actuation. the benefit of culturing and experimenting with Physarum makes this slime mold an excellent substrate for real-world implementations of unconventional sensing and computing devices
The e-book 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 mildew. The publication demonstrates tips on how to adjust houses of Physarum computing circuits with practical 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 targeted multi-agent version of slime is proven to serve good as a software program slime mold able for fixing difficulties of computational geometry and graph optimization. The multiagent version is complemented through mobile automata versions with parallel accelerations. awarded mathematical versions encouraged via Physarum contain 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 e-book is a different composition of shiny and lavishly illustrated essays so as to motivate scientists, engineers and artists to use normal phenomena in designs of destiny and emergent computing and sensing units. it's a 'bible' of experimental computing with spatially prolonged residing substrates, it spanstopics from biology of slime mold, to bio-sensing, to unconventional computing units and robotics, non-classical logics and track and arts.
