2012 arXiv   pre-print
We start with a discussion of the relevant literature, including Nature Inspired Computing as a framework in which to understand this work, and the process of biomimicry to be used in mimicking the necessary biological processes to create Digital Ecosystems. We then consider the relevant theoretical ecology in creating the digital counterpart of a biological ecosystem, including the topological structure of ecosystems, and evolutionary processes within distributed environments. This leads to a

We then define Ecosystem-Oriented Architectures for the creation of Digital Ecosystems, imbibed with the properties of self-organisation and scalability from biological ecosystems, including a novel form of distributed evolutionary computing.
