Self-organizing Particle Systems
2012 IEEE 26th International Parallel and Distributed Processing Symposium
Nanoparticles are getting more and more in the focus of the scientific community since the potential for the development of very small particles interacting with each other and completing medical and other tasks is getting bigger year by year. In this work we introduce a distributed local algorithm for arranging a set of nanoparticles on the discrete plane into specific geometric shapes, for instance a rectangle. The concept of a particle we use can be seen as a simple mobile robot with thedoi:10.1109/ipdps.2012.116 dblp:conf/ipps/DreesHKS12 fatcat:p4o6josshjdzfbf27syul67uhm
