By Aurélie Goulon, Arthur Duprat, Gérard Dreyfus (auth.), Cristian S. Calude, Michael J. Dinneen, Gheorghe Păun, Grzegorz Rozenberg, Susan Stepney (eds.)

This e-book constitutes the refereed court cases of the fifth foreign convention on Unconventional Computation, UC 2006, held in York, united kingdom, in September 2006.

The 17 revised complete papers offered including 4 invited complete papers have been conscientiously reviewed and chosen for inclusion within the ebook. All present points of unconventional computation are addressed - concept in addition to experiments and functions. commonplace themes are: normal computing together with quantum, mobile, molecular, neural and evolutionary computing; chaos and dynamical platforms dependent computing; and diverse proposals for computations that transcend the Turing model.

Example text

The (constant time) operations on images include Fourier transformation, multiplication, addition, thresholding, copying and scaling. We survey some of the work to date on the continuous space machine. This includes a characterisation of the power of an important discrete restriction of the model. Parallel time corresponds, within a polynomial, to sequential space on Turing machines, thus satisfying the parallel computation thesis. A characterisation of the complexity class NC in terms of the model is also given.

As subjective experience. 3 This is not intended as mystical or profound-just a statement of a brute fact: an idea is something that occurs only in someone’s mind. The ideas in this paper exist only in the mind of the author and the minds of the readers as the author and readers are thinking them. These ideas don’t exist on the paper or on the computer screens on which these words appear. They don’t exist in the computer memory in which these words are stored. 4 We go to such lengths to make this point because our position is that computations, like 2 3 4 Berkeley’s answer is that it makes a sound because God, who is always everywhere, hears it.
