By Andrew Adamatzky

This ebook is dedicated to Slime mildew Physarum polycephalum, that's a huge unmarried telephone able for allotted sensing, concurrent details processing, parallel computation and decentralized actuation. the benefit of culturing and experimenting with Physarum makes this slime mildew an excellent substrate for real-world implementations of unconventional sensing and computing devices

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

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

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

The e-book is a special composition of vivid and lavishly illustrated essays with a view to motivate 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 residing substrates, it spanstopics from biology of slime mildew, to bio-sensing, to unconventional computing units and robotics, non-classical logics and tune and arts.

Left panel agar plug mounted on the cover of a Petri dish, positioned with its tip to the center of the glass slide. A pseudopodium start downward growth to finally contact the slide. Right panel Network developed from a centrally placed pseudopodium. Residuals of contacted oat slurry dots are recognized as whitish spots. After 12 h the plasmodium has contacted virtually all dots (except the one on the lower right), and extended growth anticlock wise to reach the periphery of the glass slide 32 M.

Owing to variations found in slime mold networks it will then be possible to provide robots with some kind of individuality, which could be useful for optimization of robots socially acting in swarms. 34 M.
