Our EPSRC-supported project focuses Collision-Based Computing in Excitable Media (EP/E016839/1)., which comprises research in cellular automata models of excitable media (2+-medium & the spiral rule), the billiard ball model and the light-sensitive Belousov-Zhabotinsky reaction in the sub-excitable mode.
