The notion of a computational field has been proposed as a unifying abstraction for constructing and reasoning about large and self-organising networks of devices, focusing on the computations and coordination of aggregates of devices instead of individual behaviour. Recently, firm mathematical foundations have been established for this approach, in the form of a minimal universal field calculus and a more restricted syntax that guarantees self-stabilisation. We now aim to raise the abstraction… CONTINUE READING
