The slime mildew Physarum polycephalum is a huge cellphone obvious through the unaided eye. It behaves as an clever nonlinear spatially prolonged lively medium encapsulated in an elastic membrane. The mobilephone optimises its development styles in configurations of attractants and repellents. This behaviour is interpreted as computation. quite a few prototypes of slime mold desktops have been designed to resolve difficulties of computational geometry, graphs and delivery networks and to enforce common computing circuits.

In this designated set of clinical images and micrographs, the best specialists in laptop technological know-how, biology, chemistry and fabric technological know-how illustrate in incredible aspect the character of the slime mildew pcs and hybrid units. each photo or micrograph during this e-book is of actual clinical, theoretical or technological curiosity. each one access incorporates a self-contained description of the way the visualised phenomenon is utilized in the appropriate slime mold computer.

This atlas is exclusive in supplying the intensity and breadth of data in harnessing behaviour of the slime mold to accomplish computation. it's going to support readers to appreciate how exploitation of organic tactics has sparked new principles and spurred growth in lots of fields of technology and engineering.
