Abstract:

Applicational studies of mathematical models for Self-Organizing Systems are reported. Two specific models have been under investigation one concerned wiht systems of interacting trees and graphs, and the other with multi-dimensional arrays of mobile interacting elements in a discrete cellular space. The former is being illustrated by the design of a machine i.e. computer program for the automatic logic design of switching systems through Boolean graph self-organization under prescribed minimization and circuit restrictions. The latter is illustrated by defining a class of automata, inspired by cellular models, in which the positive features of these are preserved and the problem of describing self-organizing systems is simplified.
