A Topological Structure Based on Hashing - Emergence of a "Spatial" Oranization

Fourth European Conference on Artificial Life (ECAL97), Brighton 1997


A topological structure based on hashing for an algorithmic reaction system is introduced. Hashing, as a very efficient storage method for certain problems, uses an important property of the computer: Its ability to accurately access a specific address in memory space. It is shown, how a self-organising system can be built with this method. We discuss experiments with a reaction system based on the resulting hash topology.
