This thesis specializes in the dynamics of self reliant Boolean networks, at the foundation of Boolean good judgment capabilities in non-stop time with out exterior clocking. those networks are learned with built-in circuits on an digital chip as a box programmable gate array (FPGA) with approximately 100,000 common sense gates, supplying an exceptionally versatile version process. It permits quickly and inexpensive layout cycles and massive networks with arbitrary topologies and coupling delays.
The writer provides pioneering effects on theoretical modeling, experimental attention, and chosen functions. during this regard, 3 sessions of novel dynamic habit are investigated: (i) Chaotic Boolean networks are proposed as high-speed actual random quantity turbines with excessive bit premiums. (ii) Networks of periodic Boolean oscillators are domestic to long-living temporary chimera states, i.e., novel styles of coexisting domain names of spatially coherent (synchronized) and incoherent (desynchronized) dynamics. (iii) Excitable networks express cluster synchronization and will be used as speedy man made Boolean neurons whose spiking styles may be managed. This paintings provides the 1st experimental platform for giant advanced networks, with a purpose to facilitate intriguing destiny developments.
