Abstract:

A reaction-diffusion computing is a massively parallel computation based on interaction between propagating patterns in spatially extended non-linear chemical media. The reaction-diffusion computing is realized in laboratory experiments with excitable and precipitating chemical processors. Data are represented by spatial configuration of local disturbances of medium's characteristics. Information is transferred by propagating patterns. Computation is implemented by interaction of the traveling waves and localizations. A stationary or dissipative structure of the medium's states is result of the computation. We overview recent findings in the field of reaction-diffusion computing and outline perspectives of further developments in the field.
