ABSTRACT The history of computing in Mexico cannot be thought without the name of Prof. Harold V. McIntosh (1929–2015). For almost 50 years, in Mexico, he contributed to the development of computer science with wide international recognition. Approximately in 1964, McIntosh began working in the Physics Department of the Advanced Studies Center (CIEA) of the National Polytechnic Institute (IPN), now called CINVESTAV. In 1965, at the National Center of Calculus (CeNaC), he was a founding member… 



A new kind of science

A New Kind of Science, written and published by Stephen Wolfram, is the outcome of the studies he conducted systematically upon cellular automata, a class of computer model which may be visualized as a set of memory locations, each containing one bit.

Computation Finite And Infinite Machines

There are very few individuals today who doubt that the computer and its relatives are developing rapidly in capability and complexity, and that these machines are destined to play important (though not as yet fully understood) roles in society's future.

Non-Conventional Computers

Today, a “computer”, without further qualifications, denotes a rather well-specified kind of object; we’ll consider a computer “non-conventional” if its physical substrate or its organization

Conservative logic

Conservative logic shows that it is ideally possible to build sequential circuits with zero internal power dissipation and proves that universal computing capabilities are compatible with the reversibility and conservation constraints.

A Computable Universe: Understanding and Exploring Nature As Computation

This volume, with a foreword by Sir Roger Penrose, discusses the foundations of computation in relation to nature, representing a field that assumes information and computation to be key in understanding and explaining the basic structure underpinning physical reality.

Universality in Elementary Cellular Automata

The purpose of this paper is to prove that one of the simplest one dimensional cellular automata is computationally universal, implying that many questions concerning its behavior, such as whether a

Advances in Unconventional Computing: Volume 2 Prototypes, Models and Algorithms

This treatise in unconventional computing appeals to readers from all walks of life, from high-school pupils to university professors, from mathematicians, computers scientists and engineers to chemists and biologists.

Endomorphisms and automorphisms of the shift dynamical system

It is shown that closed subset of X(SQ which is invariant under a defines a subdynamical system, and that these mappings, composed with powers of the shift, constitute the entire class of continuous transformations which commute with the shift.

Computing with virtual cellular automata collider

Computer models of nano-scale computing circuits based on propagation of localised excitations or defects in complexes of polymer chain rings based on collisions that emulate basic types of interactions between localisations typical for spatially-extended non-linear media are presented.
