Abstract:

Random boolean networks RBNs have been studied theoretically and computationally in order to be able to use their remarkable self-healing and large basins of altercation properties as quantum computing architectures, especially focused on problems of physical interest which do not require universal computational structures. This preliminary study was limited primarily to ID strings, but eventually work should be directed beyond two state networks to multi-state ones. Available software was used to study selected, important properties of RBNs in 1-D. The results of this preliminary study suggest that extensive work will be needed to apply the basic principles to physical manifestations. for example, building type II architectures in self-assembled spin lattices on a chip.
