Aspects of Molecular Computing: Essays Dedicated to Tom by Artiom Alhazov, Carlos Martín-Vide, Linqiang Pan (auth.),

By Artiom Alhazov, Carlos Martín-Vide, Linqiang Pan (auth.), Nataša Jonoska, Gheorghe Păun, Grzegorz Rozenberg (eds.)

Molecular computing is a quickly starting to be subarea of ordinary computing. at the one hand, molecular computing is worried with using bio-molecules for the aim of tangible computations whereas, however, it makes an attempt to appreciate the computational nature of molecular techniques happening in dwelling cells.

The booklet offers a different and authorative state of the art survey on present learn in molecular computing: 30 papers by means of major researchers within the sector are drawn jointly at the get together of the seventieth birthday of Tom Head, a pioneer in molecular computing. one of the issues addressed are molecular tiling, DNA self-assembly, splicing platforms, DNA-based cryptography, DNA be aware layout, gene meeting, and membrane computing.

Agents and Peer-to-Peer Computing: Second International Workshop, AP2PC 2003, Melbourne, Australia, July 14, 2003, Revised and Invited Papers

Peer-to-peer (P2P) computing is at present attracting huge, immense public consciousness, spurred by way of the recognition of file-sharing structures reminiscent of Napster, Gnutella, Morpheus, Kaza, and several other others. In P2P platforms, a truly huge variety of independent computing nodes, the friends, depend on one another for providers.

Computing in nonlinear media and automata collectives

The publication provides an account of recent how one can layout hugely parallel computing units in complicated mathematical versions (such as mobile automata and lattice swarms), and from unconventional fabrics, for instance chemical recommendations, bio-polymers and excitable media. the topic of this e-book is computing in excitable and reaction-diffusion media.

E. computing and inverting a given function. On the other hand, a primitive operation like balancing does not do so. It is the same balance machine that does both addition and subtraction: all it has to do is to somehow balance the system by filling up the empty variable pan (representing output); whether the empty pan is on the right (addition) or the left (subtraction) of the balance does not particularly concern the balance machine! In the bilateral scheme of computing, there is no need to develop two distinct intuitions—one for addition and another for subtraction; there is no dichotomy between functions and their (partial) inverses.

P˘ aun [12] as a computational model inspired by the structure and functioning of the cell. A central role in this context is played by membranes delimiting regions and allowing or preventing the transport of different molecules and chemicals among them.
