Towards Indestructible Molecular Robots

Ilir Çapuni, Anisa Halimi, Dorjan Hitaj
2015 Conference on Current Trends in Theory and Practice of Informatics  
We study the fault-tolerance of the recently proposed nubot model of molecular-scale self-assembly, which generalizes asynchronous cellular automata to have non-local movement.  ...  For this, alternative models of computation are being looked for, molecular computation being one promising land to look for new models of computation.  ...  Given the probabilistic nature of the computation at this scale and the imprecise behavior of molecular elements, certain transitions would inevitably be faulty.  ...
