By Pietro Speroni di Fenizio, Peter Dittrich (auth.), Fernando Almeida e Costa, Luis Mateus Rocha, Ernesto Costa, Inman Harvey, António Coutinho (eds.)

This ebook constitutes the refereed court cases of the ninth eu convention on man made lifestyles, ECAL 2007, held in Lisbon, Portugal, September 2007.

The one hundred twenty five revised complete papers provided have been conscientiously reviewed and chosen. The papers are geared up in topical sections on conceptual articles, morphogenesis and improvement, robotics and self reliant brokers, evolutionary computation and conception, mobile automata, versions of organic platforms and their purposes, ant colony and swarm platforms, evolution of conversation, simulation of social interactions, self-replication, synthetic chemistry, and posters.

Example text

The interactions are then as shown in Table 2. The corresponding approximate differential equation becomes: x˙ = x2 y − x2 y − y 2 x = −y 2 x Since x, y ∈ [0, 1] this means that x˙ < 0 for any non-zero y. That is, such a species Y can invade and completely displace X even from (in the continuous approximation) arbitrarily small initial concentrations. Note the contrast here with the earlier simple “survival of the common” outcome, characteristic of hyperbolic growth. Now the initial dominance of X is of no protection at all against selective displacement.

3(b). Note that a mediating rule does not specify a membrane explicitly; the membrane is selected if its v-molecule is matched by the prefixed pattern on the lhs. Hence any membrane that the cubicle adjoins may be chosen. (a) ^0#AB/ + 0#CD/ → ^0#ABC/ + 0#D/ (b) ^0#AB/ + 0#CD/ → _0#ABC/ + 0#D/ Fig. 3. Mediating rules. Notice that the directions of the product 0#ABC/ are different. Dividing Rules. A dividing rule is either unary or binary, and the lhs has one prefixed pattern. The rhs may have either two prefixed patterns or a prefixed pattern and the membrane pattern (@).

Enclosing an ‘aqueous core’ where different reactions take place. , the range in which the protocell will not burst (due to an excess of osmotic pressure) or divide (when the surface is large enough to do so). We are particularly interested in the study of ‘lipid-peptide’ protocells because, as prebiotically plausible supramolecular structures,1 they could constitute the first or most elementary examples of functionalized vesicles, in the sense that the structural (and global) role of the lipid aggregate be complemented by the (more local) action of peptide chains spanning the bilayer and making possible primitive channels/pores for different compounds.
