Abstract

The possibility of constructing a non-Neumann-type computer based on the characteristics of an oscillatory and/or excitable spatial field was examined. As an experimental model, a photosensitive version of the BZ reaction, where light illumination results in the production of bromide, which inhibits the oscillatory reaction, was employed. Results show that different operations can be performed depending on the excitability of a system.
