Abstract

Artificial Life Models in Software provides an introduction and guide to modern software tools for modeling and simulating life-like phenomena, written by those who personally design and develop software, hardware, and art installations in artificial life, simulated complex systems and virtual worlds. This timely volume offers a nearly exhaustive overview and original analysis of major non-profit software packages that are actively developed and supported by experts in artificial life and software design. The carefully selected topics include: simulation and evolution of real and artificial life forms, natural and artificial morphogenesis, self-organization, models of communication and social behaviors, emergent collective behaviors and swarm intelligence, agent-based simulations, autonomous and evolutionary robotics, adaptive, complex and biologically inspired ecosystems, artificial chemistries, creative computer art. The models of life presented here are essential components in undergraduate and post-graduate courses in complex adaptive systems, multi-agent systems, collective robotics and nature-inspired computing. Readers interested in artificial life, evolutionary biology, simulation, cybernetics, computer graphics and animation, neuroscience, cognitive science, and philosophy will find this monograph a valuable guide and an excellent resource for supplementary reading. © Springer-Verlag London Limited 2009.
