A Markov Chain Algorithm for Compression in Self-Organizing Particle Systems
PODC, pp. 279-288, 2016.
We consider programmable matter as a collection of simple computational elements (or particles) with limited (constant-size) memory that self-organize to solve system-wide problems of movement, configuration, and coordination. Here, we focus on the compression problem, in which the particle system gathers as tightly together as possible, ...More
