Folding and Difference

Continuing with the Fluids and Clusters idea, I’ve extended the simulation to include some more concepts from Topobiology.  I was particularly struck by the description of cortical tractor model of neural tube formation.  In essence, the model describes a process … Continue reading

Fast Multipole Method

To get a better intuition for how the Fast Multipole Method (FMM) approximates n-body interactions, I implemented the equations in Mathematica along with the exact solution. Below are some plots for different situations.  The thing to keep in mind is … Continue reading

N-Body Problems

N-Body problems inevitably come up when doing any most any kind of physical simulation work, particularly when particles are involved.  N-Body problems appear whenever the particles in a system construct a field that in turn determines their dynamics.  The classic … Continue reading

Chemical Automata

I first came across Chemoton (Chemical Automaton) Theory a few months ago when reading a paper entitled Software Replica of Minimal Living Processes, and ever since it has been an inspiration.  At the time, I was trying to figure out … Continue reading
