Fundamentals of Natural Computing: Basic Concepts, Algorithms, and Applications (Chapman & Hall/CRC Computer and Information Science) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Fundamentals of Natural Computing presents theoretical and philosophical discussions, pseudocodes for algorithms, and computing paradigms that illustrate how natural computing brings together nature and computing to develop new computational tools for problem solving; to synthesize natural patterns and behaviors in computers; and to potentially design novel types of computers. Building on core concepts progressively, the book features a consistent and approachable textbook-style format with figures, tables, examples, and exercises to apply the concepts right away. The topics reflect a wide range of disciplines, including evolutionary computing, neurocomputing, swarm intelligence, immunocomputing, fractal geometry, artificial life, quantum computing, and DNA computing.

Book News Annotation:

De Castro (computer and electrical engineering, Catholic U. of Santos) describes combining patterns found in nature and typical computer behaviors to design a new and innovative generation of computers. Striving to be a complete guide, this includes theoretical material as well as practical instructions, right down to the code, integrating the basic concepts, algorithms and applications from a wide range of disciplines. He describe concepts ranging from parallelism and the ability to distribute to adaptation and reductionism, the ways in which computer design can be inspired by nature in evolutionary biology, evolutionary computing, or simulated annealing, neurocomputing with such techniques as neural networks, swarm intelligence, including swarm robotics, and immunocomputing, including artificial immune systems. Phenomena include fractals, cellular automata, L-systems, iterated function, fractional Brownian motion, and artificial life and closes with descriptions of new natural materials used in computing.
