By Andrew Adamatzky

This publication is dedicated to Slime mold Physarum polycephalum, that is a huge unmarried phone able for dispensed sensing, concurrent info processing, parallel computation and decentralized actuation. the convenience of culturing and experimenting with Physarum makes this slime mold a fantastic substrate for real-world implementations of unconventional sensing and computing devices

The booklet is a treatise of theoretical and experimental laboratory reviews on sensing and computing homes of slime mold, and at the improvement of mathematical and logical theories of Physarum habit.

It is proven the way to make logical gates and circuits, digital units (memristors, diodes, transistors, wires, chemical and tactile sensors) with the slime mildew. The publication demonstrates how one can alter houses of Physarum computing circuits with practical nano-particles and polymers, to interface the slime mildew with field-programmable arrays, and to take advantage of Physarum as a controller of microbial gasoline cells.

A specified 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 by way of mobile automata versions with parallel accelerations. offered mathematical types encouraged by way of Physarum contain non-quantum implementation of Shor's factorization, structural studying, computation of shortest direction tree on dynamic graphs, provide chain community layout, p-adic computing and syllogistic reasoning.

The publication is a distinct composition of brilliant and lavishly illustrated essays with the intention to motivate scientists, engineers and artists to take advantage of ordinary 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 mold, to bio-sensing, to unconventional computing units and robotics, non-classical logics and track and arts.

Martin Grube Abstract In the recent years, computer scientists have been inspired by biological systems for computational approaches, in particularly with respect to complex optimization and decision problems.

Owing to variations found in slime mold networks it will then be possible to provide robots with some kind of individuality, which could be useful for optimization of robots socially acting in swarms. 34 M.
