On the development of slime mould morphological, intracellular and heterotic computing devices (2016)
Thesis
Mayne, R. On the development of slime mould morphological, intracellular and heterotic computing devices. (Thesis). University of the West of England

The use of live biological substrates in the fabrication of unconventional computing (UC) devices is steadily transcending the barriers between science fiction and reality, but efforts in this direction are impeded by ethical considerations, the fiel...

Flexible time and ether in one-dimensional cellular automata (2013)
Thesis
Redeker, M. Flexible time and ether in one-dimensional cellular automata. (Thesis). University of the West of England

A one-dimensional cellular automaton is an infinite row of identical machines---the cells---which depend for their behaviour only on the states of their direct neighbours. This thesis introduces a new way to think about one-dimensional cellular au... Read More about Flexible time and ether in one-dimensional cellular automata.
