By Andrew Adamatzky

This e-book is dedicated to Slime mold Physarum polycephalum, that's a huge unmarried mobile able for disbursed sensing, concurrent info processing, parallel computation and decentralized actuation. the convenience of culturing and experimenting with Physarum makes this slime mildew an excellent substrate for real-world implementations of unconventional sensing and computing devices


The publication is a treatise of theoretical and experimental laboratory experiences on sensing and computing homes of slime mold, and at the improvement of mathematical and logical theories of Physarum habit.


It is proven the right way to make logical gates and circuits, digital units (memristors, diodes, transistors, wires, chemical and tactile sensors) with the slime mold. The publication demonstrates find out how to adjust homes of Physarum computing circuits with sensible nano-particles and polymers, to interface the slime mildew with field-programmable arrays, and to exploit Physarum as a controller of microbial gas cells.


A detailed multi-agent version of slime is proven to serve good as a software program slime mold able for fixing difficulties of computational geometry and graph optimization. The multiagent version is complemented by means of mobile automata versions with parallel accelerations. awarded mathematical types encouraged by way of Physarum comprise non-quantum implementation of Shor's factorization, structural studying, computation of shortest course tree on dynamic graphs, provide chain community layout, p-adic computing and syllogistic reasoning.


The ebook is a special composition of shiny and lavishly illustrated essays with a view to encourage scientists, engineers and artists to take advantage of typical phenomena in designs of destiny and emergent computing and sensing units. it's a 'bible' of experimental computing with spatially prolonged dwelling substrates, it spanstopics from biology of slime mold, to bio-sensing, to unconventional computing units and robotics, non-classical logics and tune and arts.
