Physarum - multiplication behaviour for resource allocation
Jeff JONES, Unconventional Computing Group, University of the West of England, Bristol, UK

Summary: This recording illustrates the growth of a synthetic oscillating plasmodium from a single food node in a multiplicative manner. When all of the nodes are covered, the plasmodium shrinks to form a network that approximates the family of neighbourhood proximity graphs. Later on, the multiplicative behaviour is re-initialised to cover the area within the food nodes.
