— This paper discusses a fully decentralized algorithm able to control the morphology of a modular robot, consisting of many identical modules, according to the environment encountered. One of the significant features of our approach is that we explicitly exploit " emergent phenomena " stemming from the interaction between control and mechanical dynamics in(More)
– As a model of soft confinement for polymers, we investigated equilibrium shapes of a flexible vesicle that contains a phase-separating polymer solution. To simulate such a system, we combined the phase field theory (PFT) for the vesicle and the self-consistent field theory (SCFT) for the polymer solution. We observed a transition from a symmetric prolate(More)
The parallel implementation of a recently developed hybrid scheme for molecular dynamics (MD) simulations (Milano and Kawakatsu, J Chem Phys 2009, 130, 214106) where self-consistent field theory (SCF) and particle models are combined is described. Because of the peculiar formulation of the hybrid method, considering single particles interacting with density(More)
