Journal Article
Akiyama, Y., Bando, M., Nemati, H., & Hokamoto, S. (2016). Trajectory design using the center manifold theory in the circular restricted three-body problem. Transactions of the Japan Society for Aeronautical and Space Sciences, 14(ists30), Pd_151-Pd_158. https://doi.org/10.2322/tastj.14.pd_151

Lagrangian points are libration points in the circular restricted three-body problem. Three of them are collinear libration points, and known to have unstable periodic and quasi-periodic orbits in the vicinity of themselves. This study aims to desig...

On half-adders based on fusion of signal carriers: Excitation, fluidics, and electricity (2016)
Journal Article
Adamatzky, A. (2016). On half-adders based on fusion of signal carriers: Excitation, fluidics, and electricity. Complex Systems -Champaign-, 25(3),

Likely outcomes of a collision between two objects are annihilation, reflection or fusion. We show how to construct a one-bit adder with pattern that fuse on impact. A fusion gate has two inputs and three outputs. When a signal is generated on a si... Read More about On half-adders based on fusion of signal carriers: Excitation, fluidics, and electricity.
