Update: here is a page, which will be used with the article. Thank you for letting me know about any suggestions, improvements, bugs, requests. The demos will support the article and they will be grouped on families, based on subject or on common phenomena. In this article, up to now, only chemlambda and Interaction Combinators are touched, not kali or hapax.
While hapax and anharmonic lambda calculus enter the final stage, it is time I prepare for publication the quines exploration project. I intend to make an article (first to arXiv) with a paired github repository and some github.io pages where the real things happen. For the search of new quines I might
go back to twitter and make a dedicated account. Let’s see how all this will work together.
For the moment I collect here the posts from this chorasimilarity blog, or other links which are related to the project. (Well there is a collection of google+ posts which are going to be useful, I have to see what I do with these).
So here is it, in reverse time order:
- The life of a 10-nodes quine, short video
- and the video itself on archive.org
- the find-the-quine-step-by-step page
- Perturbed quine experiment
- Lafont’ quine online
- 10-node quine can duplicate
- What is a chemlambda quine?
- More general my pages to play and learn.
- The first post on the subject: Play with quines in the chemlambda editor
- But that is something earlier, using animations from the deleted g+ collection: Lambda calculus inspires experiments with chemlambda
- or an animation showing alife replication on vimeo, along many other examples which deserve to be updated and explained in detail (is there time for such a task? only if interest is expressed for it)
A very useful yool was the full js chemlambda editor written by ishanpm. I modified it and tuned it in many places and I shall continue or I’ll write a new one, but definitely I learned stuff by using it, thanks!
I might explore also quines in other
- small graph rewrite systems, a subject which also appeared here, in the posts (reverse time list)
- SGRS 5
- SGRS 4
- SGRS 3
- SGRS 2
- SGRS 1
although I shall not touch the relations with knot theory, in this article. Only look for quines, as example.
If you have questions, suggestions, or if you want to contribute to the subject, let me know.
