Abstract

Biologically inspired computing is just one of the branches of natural computing, which also encompasses artificial life, fractal geometry and computing with natural means (molecular, membrane and quantum computing). This chapter provides a brief and general overview of natural computing, focusing on bio-inspired algorithms. Some relevant literature is cited for guidance purposes and the main objective and scope of the book is described.
