Reaction-Diffusion Computers, 9780444520425 (0444520422), Elsevier Limited, 2005
"(The authors) plans for a chemical brain might be over-ambitious - but not completely crazy. (...) (they are) likely to uncover new ideas that could help create better processors or reveal something about the way our brain works." New Scientist, 26 march 2005, p. 33

The book introduces a hot topic of novel and emerging computing paradigms and architectures -computation by travelling waves in reaction-diffusion media. A reaction-diffusion computer is a massively parallel computing device, where the micro-volumes of the chemical medium act as elementary few-bit processors, and chemical species diffuse and react in parallel. In the reaction-diffusion computer both the data and the results of the computation are encoded as concentration profiles of the reagents, or local disturbances of concentrations, whilst the computation per se is performed via the spreading and interaction of waves caused by the local disturbances. The monograph brings together results of a decade-long study into designing experimental and simulated prototypes of reaction-diffusion computing devices for image processing, path planning, robot navigation, computational geometry, logics and artificial intelligence. The book is unique because it gives a comprehensive presentation of the theoretical and experimental foundations, and cutting-edge computation techniques, chemical laboratory experimental setups and hardware implementation technology employed in the development of novel nature-inspired computing devices.

Networks: Optimisation and Evolution (Cambridge Series in Statistical and Probabilistic Mathematics)
Networks: Optimisation and Evolution (Cambridge Series in Statistical and Probabilistic Mathematics)
Point-to-point vs. hub-and-spoke. Questions of network design are real and involve many billions of dollars. Yet little is known about optimizing design - nearly all work concerns optimizing flow assuming a given design. This foundational book tackles optimization of network structure itself, deriving comprehensible and realistic design principles....

Component-Based Software Testing with UML
Component-Based Software Testing with UML

Component-based software development regards software construction in terms of conventional engineering disciplines where the assembly of systems from readily-available prefabricated parts is the norm. Because both component-based systems themselves and the stakeholders in component-based development projects are different from traditional...

Event-Based Programming: Taking Events to the Limit
Event-Based Programming: Taking Events to the Limit

Languages like C#, VB .NET, and Delphi include built-in support for events, and these events become very powerful when they connect the objects and components of a system. Events make it possible for such parts to interact without any coupling. And the resulting parts can be developed and tested individually--which keeps the code clean and...
