    The basic notion behind the cover of this issue was Paulien Hogeweg's growing polyautomata, used as a metaphor for reconfigurable machines. Hogeweg's work (1974), reflecting one of the current important efforts to marry computer sciences with biology, uses automata theory to explain the growth behavior of living things. The "genes" (4-ary strings) for the filamentary organisms like those shown on ... View full abstract»

    The energy crisis of the 1970's, perhaps fortunately, is occurring at a time when the computational power of the computer is far enough advanced to contribute significantly to the solution of the resulting problems. Four technical sessions at NCC last month sampled some of these contributions and forecast some of the requirements energy problems will place on computers in the decade ahead. View full abstract»
