Phase transitions in swarm optimization algorithms (2018)
Book Chapter
Adamatzky, A. (2018). Phase transitions in swarm optimization algorithms. In S. Stepney, & S. Verlan (Eds.), Unconventional Computation and Natural Computation, 204-2016. Spinrger

Natural systems often exhibit chaotic behavior in their space-time evolution. Systems transiting between chaos and order manifest a potential to compute, as shown with cellular automata and artificial neural networks. We demonstrate that swarms optim...

A cellular automaton collider is a finite state machine build of rings of one-dimensional cellular automata. We show how a computation can be performed on the collider by exploiting interactions between gliders (particles, localisations). The constru...
