Promotional Information

A feast of theoretical and practical information about contemporary computational models of fundamental chemical phenomena, including chemical reaction networks, autocatalytic networks, organizations and self-organization, autopoiesis, the origin of life, and even the emergence and open-ended evolution of chemical novelty and complexity. This is the go-to-first source for any question about artificial chemistry. -- Mark A. Bedau, Professor of Philosophy and Humanities, Reed College; Adjunct Professor of Systems Science, Portland State University; and Editor-in-Chief of Artificial Life I found this to be a fascinating and essential read for anyone interested in artificial life research. The book is very well-organized and provides both the specialist and non-specialist alike with lots of well-referenced examples and also integrates over many of the most important fields from concepts of living systems to evolution, artificial chemistries, computational aspects, and the need for entire system exploration -- Leroy (Lee) Cronin, Regius Professor of Chemistry, School of Chemistry, University of Glasgow This book by Banzhaf and Yamamoto provides an excellently written introduction and survey on the state of the art in the young new discipline of artificial chemistries and has the potential to become the key publication in the field. -- Peter Schuster, Professor Emeritus, Institute for Theoretical Chemistry, University of Vienna

About the Author

Wolfgang Banzhaf is University Research Professor and Head of the Department of Computer Science at the Memorial University of Newfoundland. Lidia Yamamoto is a former Postdoctoral Researcher at the University of Basel.


This book serves as a premier resource on artificial chemistries, consolidating a breadth of ideas that had yet to be unified in such a way. Even after reading the book I know that I have yet to be finished with it. Readers with minimal scientific backgrounds who are interested in the origins of life, understanding life and evolution as chemical processes, and the innovation of chemistry, will thoroughly enjoy Banzhaf and Yamamoto's Artificial Chemistries. -Genetic Programming and Evolvable Machines
