Abstract:
We consider the control of programmable self-assembling systems whose dynamics are governed by
stochastic reaction-diffusion dynamics. In our system, particles may decide the outcomes of local reac-
tions initiated by the environment, thereby steering the global system to produce a desired assembly
type. I will describe the construction of local rule sets using graph grammars and methods by which
the global properties of the resulting systems can be guaranteed. Then, based on measured natural
reaction rates, we describe a method that automatically generates the best rule set for the particles so
as to maximize the yield in the system - essentially an example of metabolic pathway engineering in
a unique setting. We demonstrate the design method using a variety of examples, including with our
self-assembling robot test-bed.
