« Simulation », writes Gary Flake in his preface « becomes a form of experimentation in a universe of théories. The primary purpose of this book is to celebrate this fact. » in this book, Gary William Flake develops in depth idea that the simple recurrent rules can produce rich and behaviors complicated. Distinguishing « agents » (e.G., molecules, cells, animals, and species) from their interactions (e.G., chemical reactions immune, système responses, sexual reproduction, and evolution) Flake argues that it is the computational properties of interactions that account for much of what we think of as « beautiful » and « interesting ». From this basic, thesis explores Flake what he considers to be today’s four most interesting computational topics: fractals, le chaos, complex systems, and adaptation. Each of the books parts can be read independently, enabling even the casual reader to understand and work with the basic equations and programs. Yet the parts are bound together by the theme of the computer as a laboratory and a metaphor for understanding the universe. The inspired reader will expérience further with the ideas presented to create landscapes, chaotic fractal systems, artificial life forms, genetic algorithms, and artificial neural networks.
