© Springer-Verlag Berlin Heidelberg 2013. Turing presented a general representation scheme by which to achieve artificial intelligence – unorganised machines. Significantly, these were a form of discrete dynamical system and yet such representations...

Reaction-diffusion controllers for robots (2009)
Book Chapter
De Lacy Costello, B., Adamatzky, A., de Lacy Costello, B., & Yokoi, H. (2009). Reaction-diffusion controllers for robots. In A. Adamatzky, & M. Komosinski (Eds.), Artificial Life Models in Hardware, (233-264). London: Springer Verlag. https://doi.org/10.1007/978-1-84882-530-7_11

Excitable systems, particularly spatially extended media, exhibit a wide variety of travelling patterns and different modes of interaction. The Belousov-Zhabo-tinsky [1] (BZ) reaction is the most well known and extensively studied example of non-line... Read More about Reaction-diffusion controllers for robots.

Martinez, K. Morita, & T. Worsch (Eds.), Automata 2008: Theory and Applications of Cellular Automata, 356-367. Luniver Press

Patterns, originating from different sources of perturbations, propagating in a precipitating chemical medium do usually compete for the space. They sub-divide the medium onto the regions unique for an initial configuration of disturbances. This sub-... Read More about Computation by competing patterns: life rule B2/S2345678.
