Summary

A case study introduction to the novel paradigm of wave-based computing in chemical systems is presented in Chapter 5. Selected problems and tasks of computational geometry, robotics and logics can be solved by encoding data in configuration of chemical medium's disturbances and programming wave dynamics and interaction.
